Dolly Parton Addresses Rumors About Her Sexuality

Dolly Parton sat down for an interview where she was asked about her sexuality.

According to UK’s The Sun, “on the sexuality whispers,” Dolly shook her head and said, “So ­people say that — because you can’t really have a great relationship with a woman. I’m not gay but I have so many gay friends and I accept everybody for who they are.”

Dolly and her husband Carl Thomas Dean have been married for almost 53 years, but he has stayed out of the spotlight.

Dolly‘s longtime friendship with Judy Ogle was brought up, and Dolly mentioned Oprah and her BFF Gayle King.

“Well, people love to talk, people love to gossip. They’ve said that about Oprah but it’s not true,” Dolly added. “Judy and I have been best friends for 64 years, since we were little kids. Our ­parents knew each other, we grew up together, we were like ­sisters, became best friends.”

“People love to talk — but sometimes that’s your best publicity. I don’t care what they say as long as they don’t hurt other people I love,” she added.
