Dolly Parton has one answer to the rumor going to around about her sexuality, she’s NOT gay. The singer is aware that there are some gossips running around that she and her best friend Judy Ogle are in fact more than friends. But Dolly shot them down once and for all during a recent interview on “Nightline.”
The country crooner explained that her and Judy’s closeness stems from the fact that they have been best friends since the third or fourth grade. They have a great friendship and relationship and she loves Judy the way she loves anybody in the whole world but, there’s nothing romantic between them. As in zero, zip, nada!
Dolly even likened their friendship to Oprah Winfrey’s friendship with best friend Gayle King. Remember that these two were also inundated by lesbian rumors because of their closeness. Dolly rationalized that people think you can’t be that close to somebody.
Another proof that Dolly isn’t a lesbian is the fact that she’s been married to her husband Carl Dean for 46 years!
I also think that in this day and age when the third sex is openly accepted by society, there’s no reason why Dolly shouldn’t “come out” so to speak. I believe her when she says she’s not gay. What about you?
