Published

Country music legend Dolly Parton has pretty much confirmed that a sequel to the hit film “9 To 5” is in the works. While its in the early stages there is a script.

“Of course, we will have to see what our thoughts are, and it will have to be rewritten a time or two, I’m sure,” she added. “Hopefully, we might get a chance to start that in the new year. But it’s going to really be good — after all these years, they finally came up with something that makes sense and was worthwhile to do.”

Parton explained that the new plot examines “three younger women working at the same Consolidated Companies, and these three girls try to figure out who these women were who made all these changes years ago.”

Faith In God Saved Dolly Parton’s Life

Published

on

Country crooner Dolly Parton said faith is the reason why she has persevered over the years.

Despite her lasting success as a music icon, the 72-year-old admitted she’s endured plenty of private woes.

In the early ‘80s, Parton developed gynecological problems that had plagued her for about three years. By 1984, she underwent a partial hysterectomy and was told she’d never be able to have children with her husband, Carl Thomas Dean.

The couple had married in 1966.

“It was a really bad time,” Parton told Closer Weekly Wednesday. “Sometimes God just has to smack you down. He was almost saying, ‘Sit your pretty little ass down because we have to deal with some stuff!’”

Parton admitted she sank into a two-year depression and was forced to scale back her professional commitments to heal. It was also around the same time when Parton wrestled with guilt over an emotional affair that left her heartbroken.

 “I grew up around macho men and have had my lovers that are that macho type,” she shared in her 2017 book, “Dolly on Dolly.” “I’m kinda drawn to that.”

However, Parton was so rattled by her feelings for another man that she even contemplated suicide.

“I looked at it a long time,” said Parton about eyeing her gun at the time. “Then, just as I picked it up, just to hold it, and look at it for a moment, our little dog, Popeye, came running up the stairs. The tap-tap of his paws jolted me back to reality. I suddenly froze and I put the gun down.”

Parton said it was then when she started to pray, begging for God’s help.

“I kinda believe Popeye was a spiritual messenger from God,” she said. “I don’t think I’d have done it, killed myself, but I can’t say for sure. Now that I’ve gone through that terrible moment, I can certainly understand the possibilities, even for someone solid like me, if the pain gets bad enough.”

 Parton insisted that it was her faith in God that truly saved her marriage.

“A belief in God is essential,” she stressed, adding she never lets a day pass by without her daily prayers.

Parton and Dean even built their own small chapel on the grounds of their farm in Tennessee.

“She spends time there the most every day she’s home,” a friend told the magazine. “She not only prays there, but she often goes there to write spiritual songs. Carl goes as well, and it’s their quiet place to reflect, pray and give thanks.”

And Parton’s love for Dean has only gotten stronger over the years.

“There’s still a lot of passion between them,” claimed the insider. “Dolly still enjoys cooking for Carl, and he still writes her love poems. Despite all of their ups and downs, they both consider their relationship a match made in heaven!”

“She always lets God’s hand guide her through life,” another friend added. “And she’s always come to the realization that God believes her place is with Carl.”

As for Parton, she’s feeling perfectly content with her beau.

“We know each other so well,” she said. “I know every line in Carl’s face, and he knows every hair in my wig!”

But Patron’s belief in God isn’t new. The singer revealed that growing up in a one-room shack, faith was essential to help her face poverty head-on. She even found refuge in an abandoned chapel near her home that had a dilapidated piano inside.

“I would sing hymns to God,” she recalled. “One day as I prayed in earnest, I broke through some sort of spirit wall and found God. [The Lord is] a friend I could talk to on a one-on-one basis.”

Parton added, “The joy and the truth I found there is with me to this day. I had found God. I had found Dolly Parton. And I loved them both.”

Dolly Parton Announces Hurricane Relief Efforts

Published

on

Today, Dolly Parton will assist with the ongoing relief efforts around the United States and its territories by making a contribution to the One America Appeal for Hurricane Relief to assist with immediate life sustaining needs of those affected. The One America Appeal is a joint appeal that was originally launched by all five living former American Presidents to encourage their fellow citizens to support recovery efforts from Hurricane Harvey. This special appeal has been expanded to include areas most affected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

Dolly recalled, “After the tremendous outpouring of support my hometown received last winter after the wildfires raged through the area, I want to do my part to help other areas affected by natural disasters. I admire and respect this effort led by our Presidents so it is an honor for me to contribute to their work.”

In addition to the financial contribution to the One America Appeal, Dolly will launch a partnership with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, the nonprofit social enterprise First Book, and Penguin Young Readers to provide 500,000 books to hurricane-affected areas through the First Book National Book Bank.To kick off the campaign, Dolly’s foundation donated 165,000 books and the $90,750 needed to cover the shipping and handling charges to make books available quickly and at no cost to educators affected by the storms. From Hurricane Katrina to Hurricane Sandy to last year’s floods in Louisiana, First Book has distributed over 5 million books to families affected by disasters, in partnership with children’s book publishers, including a substantial book donation from Penguin Young Readers. Penguin Young Readers also partners with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library and First Book to support their book gifting programs and other outreach efforts, with a special focus on getting books to children in times of natural disasters.

“I know in the immediate aftermath of a disaster books are not the first thing people need or miss. But I also know from our past experience that after some time has passed, families, schools and libraries are eager to replenish their shelves, and their hearts, with books. First Book asked us to join with them to get the right books in the right hands at the right time and we were pleased to do so,” said Dolly.

If you would like to learn more or donate to this effort—or if you work with a school or program affected by the storms—please visit support.firstbook.org.

Schools and programs affected by the storms can sign up for free with First Book and will then receive information about how to request books; each book distribution will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
