Dolly Parton

Sorry Ladies,

I'm NO Lesbian

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."

life long friends are more than just friends, they're family. If you're close with your sister, are you a lesbian? Of course not. She's a woman whose been happily married for nearly 50years. Very few gay people can be stuck in a marriage with someone of the opposite sex that long if they are attracted to someone of the same sex I'm honestly sick of homos who are constantly trying to mainstream homosexuality. We get it you're gay. Doesn't mean everyone has to be. Geez.

Dolly rocks! I've had a best friend since the age of 4 and I'm over 50 now. And I NEVER want to ever see her naked.

I've got three different very good friends I've known for 30 years each. I'm 48, myself.

Am truly blessed to have these friends, people I can implicitly trust.

Homosexuals don't realize there can be a best friend without some kind of intimate contact. Just another way homosexuals attempt to legitimize their behavior.

You have to remember that while some female country stars have come out in the last couple of years, 20 years ago it would have been the kiss of death to her career. She's so deep in the closet she's finding Christmas presents.

A gay friend of mine told me about 20 years ago that that this is the worst kept secret in the gay community. She's very gay.

Most Americans are basically unkind, rude and heartless. It is bordering on cruel to make accusations like this.
