Kristin Chenoweth: Dolly Parton Wants Me To Get A Boob Job To Play Her On Broadway

Have you heard Dolly Parton’s writing a new Broadway musical about her life? And she wants fellow Good Christian belter Kristin Chenoweth to play her in it!

Queerty ran into Kristin at a Diet Pepsi event for Fashion Week, where the Good Christian Belles star said she’d love to play Dolly but lamented that she’s “lacking a couple of things.” A subtle showcase of her modest cleavage let us know she was talking about Dolly’s legendary knockers.

“But I can take care of that,” the pint-sized star laughed. “For Dolly!”

When we asked if she’d stuff or opt for something more, um, permanent, Chenoweth said: “Dolly’s writing the show, and she said she wants me to play her. But she said that maybe I do need to go get some help on Park and 75th 73rd.”

Obviously the only Dolly-approved place to get a boob job would be on the Upper East Side.

Update: Thanks to the commenters who pointed out that Chenoweth is making a sly reference to a lyric in A Chorus Line.

It goes: “It’s a gas / Just a dash of silicone / Shake your new maracas and you’re fune / Tits and ass can change your life / They sure changed mine”

And continues, later on: “Honey, take my word / Grab a cab, c’mon / See the wizard on / Park and 73rd for / Tits and ass.” Skip ahead to 5:35 in this video for it:

    Isn’t the wizard at Park & 73rd?

  • Marie Cohn

    Girl, please! You meant to say Dolly wants you to get ANOTHER boob job.

  • David Levy

    Really, Queerty, you missed Cheno’s “A Chorus Line” reference? I’m almost as disappointed as when Patti LuPone forgot the lyrics to “Don’t Rain on My Parade” in front of 18,000 gays at the Hollywood Bowl ten years ago.

    Also, Chenowith does not have “modest cleavage”. Admittedly they are not Dolly-sized but she’s not flat.

    “the only Dolly-approved place to get a boob job would be on the Upper East Side.”

    and also on the Upper West Side or those boobs won’t look right at all!
    and not too much to the Side either — or it’ll look like a hammerhead shark.

    @SammySeattle: it is the wizard at Park & 73rd. And I don’t believe for a minute that Kristin missed the quote, I think it was just lost on the interviewer.

  • Steve

    I immediately recognized the Chorus Line reference, but like the others, was pretty sure the line was Park and 73rd (to rhyme with “word”).

    Oh dear, what a dreadful performance of that charming song.

    The video quality is awful, but you should check out Pamela Blair from the original cast in 1975 doing the song brilliantly:
