During her appearance on Watch What Happens Live this week, Dolly revealed that she made a special purchase with the money.

“I bought my big office complex down in Nashville. So I thought, Well, this is a wonderful place to be,” Dolly revealed. “I bought a property down in what was the Black area of town, and it was mostly just Black families and people that lived around there. And it was off the beaten path from 16th Avenue.”

She added, “I thought, ‘Well, I am going to buy this place, the whole strip mall.’ And thought, ‘This is the perfect place for me to be’, considering it was Whitney.”

“So I just thought, ‘This was great, I’m just going to be down here with her people, who are my people as well,’” she went on “So, I just love the fact that I spent that money on a complex. And I think, ‘This is the house that Whitney built.’”

Dolly also revealed whether there had been any plans for her to sing a duet on the song with Whitney.

“No, I never was asked to perform that with Whitney,” she shared. “I wish that could’ve happened. I would’ve love that, but I don’t think I could come up to snuff with her, though. She would’ve outsung on that one, for sure.”

In the same interview, Dolly also opened up about her involvement with Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
