That just looks like a fan she posed for a pic with.
She's been talking about him a lot lately. Maybe because her dumb hick fans are finally questioning if he really exists.
Let's see if she 'kills him off' before he won't have to (not) appear at her own funeral.

Ages ago I read a book about women in country music - it might have been Nashville Babylon, in which case a grain of salt and all that, or it could have been Finding Her Voice, a much more 'respectable' work. In one section, discussing the late 60s/early 70s, it said that one of the 'big three'* was gay but had to stay closeted because of country's conservatism. At the time they were referring to, the 'big three' were Dolly, Loretta and Tammy so I just assumed it had to be Dolly.

Dolly had a very unpretentious house is Solvang for a long time. Fannie Flagg also lives in Solvang. They’ve worked together many times. I always wondered if maybe they were a couple. I mean… SOLVANG? It’s a fairly obscure place to live unless you move there to be near someone.

2. He’s a loner. Parton’s husband likes a life of solitude – even though his wife commands the world stage. “My husband is a loner,” she told PEOPLE. “He doesn’t particularly care about being around anybody but me. He’s just always asked me to leave him out of all this. He does not like all the hullabaloo.” But that doesn’t mean Dean’s not supportive of his wife’s so-called “hullabaloo.” She told Parade that Dean’s “very secure within himself,” and never gets jealous of Parton’s stardom – and rotating cast of handsome co-stars. “This is his statement: ‘Well, hell, I know it’s not easy out there. I’d feel less about any man that didn’t fall in love with you,’ ” she shared.
5. He’s only seen Dolly perform a few times. Don’t expect to see Dean front row at Parton’s shows – as of 2011, he’d only seen her perform a few times. “No, he doesn’t like to do that,” Dolly told Ellen DeGeneres. “He gets nervous seeing me perform. It’s almost like seeing your kid in a recital. He’s afraid I’ll mess up. Actually, he has seen me a time or two and it did relax him a little. He saw that I do mess up and it’s OK because people are not gonna punish me for it.”
I want to know how Ellen reacted to the explanations , lol

Parton said many times her song "Jolene" was about an attractive girl who flirted with her husband, but I just found there was actually another take on the song lyrics and she seemed to be OK with the idea.
[quote] In 2019, the podcast Dolly Parton's America had an episode addressing the question of whether the narrator's focus on Jolene's beauty and desirability is indicative of her own attraction to Jolene. A musicologist wrote and performed a fourth verse which makes this interpretation explicit; when the podcast's hosts played audio of this performance for Parton, she responded that this was "another take on it".

If people want to see if Carl Dean really exists, hang out in RV parks. Dolly claims that every year she spends a week with him traveling in an RV, she doesn't make herself up and wears her own hair, and they are just Mr. and Mrs. Dean not Mr. and Mrs. Dolly Parton. I know a woman who claims to have ran into them, but she also claims to have slept with Elvis so I don't know how reliable a source she is.

So he had a house in Solvang, West Hollywood and Idyllwild. Two of those are very remote obsucre places. I dont get West Hollywood, though, maybe a hang out for when she was in LA working? The Solvang and Idyllwild are about 2 1/2 hours drive from the city of WeHo in opposite directions. And at the same time 23 room mansion in Nashville. Now she has sold it all and back to a small 4 bedroom house apparently. Her net worth is over 350 million.
I dont understand her plan here. I get she probably likes the homeyness of small houses, and if husband is with her, remote locations probably what he wants but then the mansion? She's 72, what's she going to do with all that money when she dies? She seems to be saving it for something.
