Dolly Parton Loves the Gays, Insists She’s Not One of Them

Have you heard the one about Dolly Parton having a lesbian relationship with a woman said to be her assistant, and how she has a sex dungeon in the basement of her home, and how she’s actually covered with tattoos (which is why you never see her sleeveless and instead she’s always in those same neck-plunging designs)? Those are all among the rumors we’ve heard about the country star in recent years, all delivered with the “I swear it’s true” guarantee. But Ms. Parton is actually married to a dude — the kind who has no desire to be in the public eye at all, which is why you never see him. So let Dolly explain away those gay rumors like a seasoned professional — and forward this clip to Ricky Martin‘s publicist for tips.
