According to a new report from the National Enquirer, Dolly Parton survived an almost-fatal car crash. That’s not all – she was reportedly in a car crash with her lesbian lover, Judy Ogle. Apparently, the accident was so bad that Dolly feared that Judy was dead.
A source tells the Enquirer, “Dolly thought she had lost the woman she loves. Judy was stuck in the driver’s seat and her airbag didn’t deploy. Dolly feared Judy had internal bleeding and was going to die right there in front of her eyes. Dolly cried, ‘No, I love you – I can’t lose you!’ Dolly was far more concerned for Judy’s well-being than her own. She hobbled around the car to Judy’s side and lovingly stroked her face and forehead. She also whispered softly to her that ‘everything will be OK. Hang in there, my honey.’ She did this until help arrived to extract her.”
That’s all well and good – but who on earth saw all this happen with such detail but didn’t help? If this is a legitimate ‘source’, how could they have described this all so carefully without having been there, down to the exact words that were said? And if they were there and close enough to hear what was being said, why didn’t they offer assistance?
Regardless, it’s not news to find out that Dolly Parton is a lesbian, something the mainstream public doesn’t really know. Back in the early days, especially in Tennessee, being gay was something you never revealed to the public for fear of getting ostracized. Dolly’s marriage has always been a sham, and she’s always had lovers on the side. Even now, most of her fans are people that would react strongly to the news that Dolly is gay, but at her age, I think Dolly’s just stopped caring. She’s Dolly freaking Parton, for goodness sake. Thankfully, the car crash didn’t cause any permanent damage to either her or Judy, but I still think the source’s description is suspect. I have a feeling the Enquirer found out about the accident, and then decided to write fan fiction for the actual story.
