Dolly Parton and Judy Ogle

All these years I thought that they met when they were in college years or once they discovered their sexualities. But they know each other since they were little kids. Their parents were friends with each other. So that changes the whole Dolly is a closeted lesbian who found herself a butch partner. More like Dolly's best friend is her childhood friend who happens to be butch (gay? straight?) woman.

Well Dolly did admit in her autobiography that she and Judy share the same bed when they travel together

Even if they get a room with double beds, they push the beds together to make one bed, they can share

Dolly has not mentioned a romantic partner for Judy in decades. That is one reason the rumor keeps going.

Why has that rumor been around forever and persist then? Naomi Judd mentioned the close friendships she had with other female performers and there was never any hint or rumors she was into women sexually so it isn't people don't think women can be close friends.

by Anonymousreply 18June 13, 2022 9:06 AM

R18 Because Naomi Judd wasn't even close to being famous as Dolly. Cause she didn't have just one friend she was close to since she was a kid. Saying she had close friendships she had with other female performers isn't the same as Dolly's case

Dolly and Judy have been together decades. When Dolly had the nervous breakdown earlier in her career it was because Judy left her for a bit.

Dolly's sister is gay as well. It's in their hillbilly genes.

What does the level of fame got to do with this, R19? Besides, the rumor started when Dolly wasn't nearly as famous as she is now. My point is those who think it is all because people think women can not be just close friends are wrong.

Interesting how Dolly does not mention anything about having long term marriages in common. Don't most straight women talk about their husbands with good friends? My guess is Dolly did talk about her real relationship (Judy) with Naomi. She is supposedly out to friends.

"I didn’t know any gay people in my childhood. I do have a lot of gays in my family now, but some will never come out," the singer, who was one of 12 children in a Pentecostal family living in Locust Ridge, Tenn., told Britain's Event magazine, per an article featured on the Daily Mail's website.

Particularly at this point in her life, I think if Dolly was gay, she's say she was gay. Even if she isn't lovers with this woman, she could have some sort of co-dependence on her & she can afford to keep her woman, so why not? It's better than having people in your home that you can't trust.

She just seems like that type of person that would say "I grew up in an environment that frowned on that kind of thing, but I'm telling you, it's no big deal"! And that would be that

The most successful people in most fields are men. In a field where only women compete, lesbians invariably rise to the top. Paradoxically, or not, a disproportionate number of successful men at elite levels are gay.

How do we know that Taylor swift is a lesbian. We know all her friends are lesbians. We know all her boyfriends are gay. We know when she has an affair with a lesbian because all the details of her movements are in the news
