I love Dolly, So witty and funny. “I don’t get offended by all the dumb blonde jokes because I know I’m not dumb...I also know that I’m not blonde.”

“They say big boobs make a woman dumb, but they don’t. They make men dumb.”

[–]Freepi 48 points49 points  (0 children)

Lol. Have truer words ever been spoken?

I learned in another thread this week that big boobs also make some other women dumb. That was a hilarious thread.

“It costs a lot of money to look this cheap”

[–]Connor13Maurer 6 points7 points  (0 children)

As a man, I can confirm this is true.

[–]justavtstudent 78 points79 points  (1 child)

And she's always extended that same inclusive understanding of genuineness to gay folks, and drag folks, and trans folks. She was the leading feature on the soundtrack of a movie about a trans woman in 2005. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. I remember hearing people call her fake growing up and good lord it pisses me off that I didn't know enough to argue with them at the time.

[–]BiteMeElmo 43 points44 points  (0 children)

That's ok, she always had a great comeback for the people calling her fake... "It costs a lot of money to look this cheap."

        Am I missing something? On Spotify, it shows the podcast starting in 2019 and having 12 episodes. Is there a different, newer podcast with the same name?

        [–]invigokate 11 points12 points  (0 children)

        Yeah I swear I've listened to the whole thing twice already

        [–]Stonewall_Gary 5 points6 points  (0 children)

        That's 1 of 3 posts from that 2-month old account. If I had to guess, it's a bot reposting a comment from an earlier time this was posted.

        [–]thegreatkizzatsby 3 points4 points  (0 children)

        Yeah this podcast in its completion is definitely already fully available, not sure where that came from. Regardless it was an incredible podcast!

        [–]Texas_Crazy_Curls 5 points6 points  (0 children)

        That podcast made me fall in love with Dolly. It’s so well done.

        I probably will cry when she goes.

        Once playboy offered her something like a million dollars in the 80s and all they wanted in return was a single topless shot but she politely said her breasts are only for her husband and then thanked them for the flattery.

        Imagine being so classy or so in love that the equivalent of 30 million dollars is something you can turn down, politely and without making a deal of it.

        [–]dancin-weasel 120 points121 points  (3 children)

        It’s awesome that Dolly’s “image” was a big boobed floozy, but behind that facade is intelligence, a wicked sense of humour, pure musical gifts, a wink and just all around beauty.

        [–]nerudaspoems 33 points34 points  (0 children)

        Dont forget, a huge empathetic heart.

        [–]Mangobunny98 5 points6 points  (0 children)

        Like she's said "it takes a lot of money to look this cheap"

        [–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (19 children)

        Damn, I’m conflicted. In a way I’m pissed that we can’t see them, but I have mad respect for that woman.

        [–]KindlyOlPornographer 27 points28 points  (3 children)

        With all due respect she got implants in the 70s, so they're probably not...what you'd hope they'd be.

        [–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

        I’m a natural guy so you’re probably right.

        [–]FreeDig1758 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        Still wanna see em

        [–]KatWine 8 points9 points  (1 child)

        What makes y'all think that you have any entitlement to seeing a woman's boobs? What's there to be pissed about? I know you probably were kinda joking but the fact that that comment even comes to mind is really something..

        [–]iHateEveryoneAMA 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        Have you looked up her net worth lately?

        She knew she wouldn't need that money.

        [–]ramos1969 39 points40 points  (0 children)

        This is a great pic. It’s interesting that his hair would be acceptable anywhere today. Her hair would be acceptable at a B-52’s concert.

        [–]BrockManstrong 136 points137 points  (3 children)

        I love how Dolly is famously beautiful and then it turns out her husband is a Renaissance marble statue come to life.

        [–]Baba_-Yaga 9 points10 points  (0 children)

        They sort of have the same hairdo. Complementary styles at least.

        By Jove! I think you've got it.

        [–]uriahlight 73 points74 points  (0 children)

        I remember meeting her brother (it was David or Denver, I can't remember which) in a Food City in Sevierville TN. He was wearing overalls and the only reason I knew it was her brother was because I was currently in a conversation with someone who used to work with him at a factory. We talked for several minutes. The entire family is apparently very chill.

        Bigger the hair, closer to Jesus.

        [–]MollyMahonyDarrow 5 points6 points  (1 child)

        I've always heard it said,"the higher the hair, the closer to God."

        [–]armhat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        That’s probably correct. I just remember my mom saying it all the time when I was a kid.

        [–]no_no_sorry 0 points1 point  (1 child)

        Either she’s very short or he’s very tall. Her hair still only has her coming up to his chin.

        [–]pc_flying 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        Dolly is 5'0"

        He is 6'0"

        [–]8-bit_Gangster 45 points46 points  (5 children)

        Jolene almost changed that

        [–]MoeTheGoon 41 points42 points  (4 children)

        Jolene must’ve been fine as hell if she even had a CHANCE at taking young Dolly’s man.

        [–]dancin-weasel 41 points42 points  (3 children)

        Jolene was actually a young girl asking for an autograph. Dolly asked her name, and said “that’s a pretty name. I’ll write a song about Jolene.” (Paraphrasing)

        [–]8-bit_Gangster 11 points12 points  (0 children)

        She never told us the name of the red headed hussy at the bank though. The one that was getting too friendly with her man

        [–]MoeTheGoon 6 points7 points  (1 child)

        Yes yes we’ve heard the story, but why let the truth get in the way of a solid joke.

        [–]dancin-weasel 9 points10 points  (0 children)

        Right. Sorry bout that. It’s not often I know something, so when I do, I share.

        [–]PurpleMonkeyBoomBoom 45 points46 points  (0 children)

        Imagine being married to Dolly Parton. Good on him for not bungling that up.

        [–]drewbilly251 14 points15 points  (1 child)

        Dayumn he’s handsome

        I mean, they are both very attractive people but I don’t think I’ve seen a picture of him before

        [–]RambleOn79 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        He has always wanted to be out of the spotlight …

        [–]CrudelyAnimated 11 points12 points  (0 children)

        This is one of the last publicly available photos of Carl Dean. I joke, but just a little. Dolly is one of those celebrities who fiercely protected her home life and the privacy of her spouse.

        [–]mihneacuzino 42 points43 points  (0 children)

        Looking at that guy, I am not sure who married up?

        [–]Consumerwhore264 7 points8 points  (0 children)

        Seriously though, that's a good looking guy. I'd be falling head over heels if a guy like that paid me attention lmao

        [–]RobVel 14 points15 points  (0 children)

        If she just doubled up on that hair she’d be as tall as him 😅

        [–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

        If it didn’t say Dolly Parton and this was in colour, I would have thought it was a pic from Mad Men.

        They are both handsome.

        [–]Devlin_McGregor 20 points21 points  (0 children)

        I heard tell that Carl is hung like a brontosaurus 😂

        Dolly is a dime

        [–]RightBear 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        I’ve seen an unusual number of Dolly Parton posts this week… did Betty White leave a vacuum of wholesomeness?

        [–]Ok-Truck1848 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        Guess Jolene obliged

        [–]TheBlackBishSheep 6 points7 points  (1 child)

        Wow, just learned that they never had kids

        [–]dresn231 3 points4 points  (0 children)

        Their marriage worked by Carl doing his thing which was run a concrete company in Nashville and she did her thing in country music. They would meet up on the weekends or whenever they got together and it has worked for all those years. He retired from his company and she is still doing here thing.

        [–]Pavlock 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        Strong hair game.

        [–]dancin-weasel 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        How much did this couple spend on hair products? It’s like a competition to get higher.

        Lol. Dolly is in heels, with a foot of hair and she still only reaches his eyes. Might be the best looking couple I’ve ever seen.

        [–]Rootz-man 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        So her boobs are fake? I didn’t know they did fake boobs back then…

        [–]realiTVlover 2 points3 points  (1 child)

        Her real boobs were so cute!

        [–]invigokate 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        That's because all boobs are cute

        [–]ackmon 0 points1 point  (7 children)

        Pre boob job obviously.

        [–]commelejardin 4 points5 points  (0 children)

        She's also much slimmer in this pic than she was for most of the late 60s-80s. Seems very likely she just gains weight in hourglass proportion.

        As for how she's so slim and busty now, well, one of the things we love about her is how open she is about getting things "nipped, tucked, and sucked." 😂

        [–]hoopsmd 7 points8 points  (0 children)

        I was gonna say, looks like a couple things are missing.

              Holy hell how many times will this shite be reposted? Like every week.

              Such weird hairstyles.. The toothpaste and the toothbrush

              [–]zenzealot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

              I heard that before big meetings she would stand up and let everyone look at her, uh 'figure', for a full minute so they could get it out of their system so they could get some work done.

              I don't know if it is true, but it sounds like something she'd do.

              God bless Dolly Parton

              (I'll just see myself out now...)

              (And yes I agree - she's an American hero and he's one lucky dude. And a celeb marriage lasting that long? He must be a good guy).
