Personal Life

Dolly Parton Part Eight

Family

On May 30, 1966, Parton and Carl Thomas Dean (born July 20, 1942, in NashvilleTennessee) were married in Ringgold, Georgia. Although Parton does not use Dean‘s surname professionally, she has stated that her passport says Dolly Parton Dean and that she sometimes uses Dean when signing contracts. Deanwho is retired from running an asphalt road-paving business in Nashville, has always shunned publicity and rarely accompanies his wife to any events. According to Parton, he has seen her perform only once. She also has said in interviews that, although it appears they spend little time together, it is simply that nobody sees him publicly. She has commented on Dean‘s romantic side, saying that he does spontaneous things to surprise her and sometimes even writes poems for her. In 2011 Parton said, We‘re really proud of our marriage. It‘s the first for both of us. And the last. On May 6, 2016, Parton announced that she and her husband would renew their vows in honor of their 50th wedding anniversary later in the month.
Parton and Dean helped raise several of Parton‘s younger siblings in Nashvilleleading her nieces and nephews to refer to her as Aunt Granny, a moniker that later lent its name to one of Parton‘s Dollywood restaurants. The couple have nochildren of their own, but Parton is the godmother of performer Miley Cyrus.


Public Image

Parton has turned down several offers to pose nude for Playboy magazine, but did appear on the cover of the October 1978 issue wearing a Playboy bunny outfitcomplete with ears (the issue featured Lawrence Grobel‘s extensive and candid interview with Parton, representing one of her earliest high-profile interviews with the mainstream press). The association of breasts with Parton‘s public image is illustrated in the naming of Dolly the sheep after her, since the sheep was cloned from a cell taken from an adult ewe‘s mammary gland. In MobileAlabama, the General W.K. Wilson Jr. Bridge is commonly called the Dolly Parton Bridge due to its arches resembling her chest. The Hernando de Soto Bridgeover the Mississippi River at Memphis is also sometimes called this for the same reason.
Parton is known for having undergone considerable plastic surgery. On a 2003 episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show, Winfrey asked what kind of cosmetic surgery Parton had undergone, Parton replied that cosmetic surgery was imperative in keeping with her famous image. Parton has repeatedly joked about her physical image and surgeries, saying, It takes a lot of money to look this cheap. Her breasts have garnered her mentions in several songsincluding Dolly Parton‘s Hits by Bobby Braddock, Marty Feldman Eyes by BruceBaum (a parody of Bette Davis Eyes), No Show Jones by George Jones and Merle Haggard, and Make Me Proud by Drake ft. Nicki Minaj. When asked about future plastic surgeries, she famously said, If I see something sagging, bagging or dragging, I‘ll get it nipped, tucked or sucked. Parton‘s feminine escapism is acknowledged in her words, Womanhood was difficult thing to get a grip on in those hills, unless you were a man.


Philanthropy

Since the mid-1980s, Parton has supported many charitable efforts, particularly in the area of literacy, primarily through her Dollywood Foundation. Her literacy program, Dolly Parton‘s Imagination Library, a part of the Dollywood Foundation, mails one book per month to each enrolled child from the time of their birth until they enter kindergarten. Currently, over 1600 local communities provide the Imagination Library to almost 850,000 children each month across the U.S., Canada, the UK, Australia, and the Republic of Ireland. In 2018Parton was honored by the Library of Congress on account of the charity sending out its 100 millionth book. In 2006, Parton published a cookbook, Dolly‘s Dixie Fixin‘s: Love, Laughter and Lots of Good Food.
The Dollywood Foundation, funded from Parton‘s profits, has been noted for bringing jobs and tax revenues to a previously depressed region. Parton also has worked to raise money for several other causes, including the American Red Cross and HIV/AIDS-related charities. In December 2006, Parton pledged $500,000 toward a proposed $90-million hospital and cancer center to be constructed in Sevierville in the name of Dr. Robert F. Thomas, the physician who delivered herShe announced a benefit concert to raise additional funds for the project. The concert played to about 8,000 people. That same year, Emmylou Harris and she had allowed their music to be used in a PETA ad campaign that encouraged pet owners to keep their dogs indoors rather than chained outside.
