The rumors that Judy Ogle is Dolly Parton’s girlfriend are running ramped on the Net. However the country superstar is separating fact from fiction when it comes to her relationship with Ogle that will no doubt put a stop to these crazy rumors.

During an interview with Nightline Dolly gave the low down on whether or not she is gay. The correct answer is she is not gay, which is not surprising at all considering the blonde buxom has been happily married to Carl Thomas Dean for 46-years. In fact when the couple celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary in 2011, Parton had this to say about her marriage “We’re really proud of our marriage. It’s the first for both of us. And the last”.

Since the singing sensation set the record straight just who exactly is Ogle to the singer, who is basically considered country royalty? According to Dolly herself Judy is her best friend. That is right her BFF just like Gayle King to Oprah. Because Parton and Ogle are such great friends, who spend a lot of time together, the rumor mill just heated up that they were in a secret relationship, which as we know now is untrue.

Here is what Dolly had to say on the subject.

“Judy and I have been best friends since we were like in the third and fourth grade”. Dolly says it’s the same false rumors striking Oprah. “Like Gayle, her friend, Judy, my friend … (people) just think that you just can’t be that close to somebody.”

Kind of a shame that two women can’t be super close besties without the assumption that they are lesbians following them around. This is not the first time these kind of rumors have plagued the two women either, back in 2009 the same kind of gossip made the rounds.

Along with being BFF’s with one of country’s biggest stars it would seem that Judy has also helped Parton out with her career. According to IMDB she is listed as not only assistant to Dolly on a number of projects but also as working in make-up for the singer/actress on a number of projects as well. Oh let us not forget she helped with wardrobe as well. Basically her career has revolved around her famous friend and there ain’t nothing wrong with that. It was clearly the way Dolly wanted it or she would not have had her pal work so closely with her.

Judy Ogle is not Dolly Parton’s girlfriend in the lesbian sense but she is her girlfriend in the sense that the two have been friends since fourth grade and are the greatest of pals. Parton herself has denied that she is in a secret love affair with 66-year old Ogle. I have to say I believe Dolly but it isn’t just about what I think so please feel free to share your thoughts with me on this topic as well as any other info on Judy you might have.
