Dolly Parton is NOT gay … the same way that Oprah Winfrey is not gay … so says Dolly Parton.
Dolly set the record straight about her sexual orientation during an interview with “Nightline.” Parton says she”s well aware of the rumors that she”s in a secret relationship with her BFF Judy Ogle … but claims the rumors are simply untrue.
“Judy and I have been best friends since we were like in the third and fourth grade,” Parton explained … saying, “We still just have a great friendship and relationship and I love her as much as I love anybody in the whole world, but we”re not romantically involved.”
In fact, Dolly — who”s been married to a man for 46 years — says she bonded with Oprah over the lesbian rumors … since Oprah has also been hounded by false rumors that she”s in a secret relationship with her BFF Gayle King.
“Like Gayle, her friend, Judy, my friend … [people] just think that you just can”t be that close to somebody.”
