As noted by Yahoo TV, Dolly Parton appeared on the daily morning syndicated show Live with Kelly and Michael, and had fun with hosts Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan, who asked her on how she prefers to be called after she was awarded an honorary doctorate by University of Tennessee back in 2009.
“So now that you have your doctorate, do we call you Dr. Dolly or Double D?” Strahan jokingly asked Parton, who received a doctorate of humane and musical letters for her contribution in the music industry as singer and composer since the 1960s. The audience then laughed, along with Kelly and Dolly.
“It’s an innocent question!” Strahan defended himself, with the 66-year old country music iconic singer saying that she had been called that for years. Kelly and Michael later asked Dolly a couple of fast impromptu questions with time limit, and the iconic singer gave hilarious answers.
Meanwhile, Parton, who celebrated her 45th wedding anniversary with Carl Thomas Dean on May 30, 2011, responded to rumors that she is gay, which apparently started when people noticed her long-time close friendship with Judy Ogle. The ‘9 to 5’ star appeared on ABC‘s ‘Nightline’ last Monday and denied the rumors.
“Judy and I have been best friends since we were like in the third and fourth grade. I mean, I love her as much as I love anybody in the whole world, but we’re not romantically involved.” Dolly Parton was quoted telling to show host Juju Chang. Parton was then promoting her new biography book titled “Dream More: Celebrate the Dreamer in You”.
