At 66-years-old, Dolly Parton’s mind is as sharp as they come. The country legend was subjected to rapid fire questions during her appearance on Live With Kelly and Michael. Not only did she answer five questions in a minute, but she did it with panache and with humor. I have to admit she’s pretty quick on her feet. When asked her favorite color, Parton answer “Clairol, number 249″. LOL.
Before the lightning questions, they briefly discussed the honorary doctorate Parton is receiving. Michael asked her if he could call her “Doctor Dolly” or “Double D” for short. She quickly replied, that it wasn’t new to her because, “I’ve been called that for years.”
The one thing not covered in the interview were the rumors that surfaced earlier this week that Dolly was in a lesbian relationship with her childhood friend Judy Ogle. Parton dismissed the rumors already stating that she’s not gay, but her fans are. Amen to that sister. You’ve got one here. Check out Dolly’s rapid fire session below.
“Nine months and I am about to give birth to my new co-host,” Kelly Ripa joked as she hit the Live! stage this morning. After a cryptic interview prior to the announcement on Good Morning America, Kelly was ready to tell her faithful audience who would be sitting next to her for a new chapter of the show.
After over 60 co-hosts, Kelly and her team have finally decided on former New York Giants star, Michael Strahan. “I am so happy to be here and be a part of this,” Michael stated after entering the stage and giving Ripa a big hug. It’s undeniable that these two have great chemistry on screen and have become the best of friends. But, will these two stand the test of time (and ratings) like former co-host Regis Philbin did?
