Did he wear it when he married David Geffen? I KID. Sad Keanu Reeves, Hollywood stalwart and soft-spoken hug magnet, went on the The Talk and spoke about the time that he wore birthday goddess Dolly Parton’s bunny outfit from her 1978 Playboy cover.
When I heard Jennifer Aniston was once plagued with an issue of ghosts coming out of the woodwork at her house, I wasn’t completely convinced that wasn’t just Angelina Jolie sending over some of the child army to mess with her and move dishes around. Alas, this case of a live-in poltergeist happened a long time ago when she was a fresh face in Los Angeles and she told the story on The Late Late Show with James Corden. While most of us would have made an immediate stop to In-N-Out, Jen hired a ghost whisperer to see what spirits were around to split rent with her. It sounds like there were plenty.
You’re either wearing the darkest sunglasses you can find or you turned on the speak feature on your browser, because all that double dose of rhinestone-encrusted beauty definitely temporarily blinded you. It’s been cloudy in Los Angeles and obviously because the sun was like, “Can’t compete. I’m taking the day off!” But a little more on Dolly Squared in a bit…
Dolly Parton is promoting the upcoming Netflix movie Dumplin’, aka The One Where Rachel Plays A Pageant Mom. The soundtrack to Dumplin’ is all Dolly songs, some old and some new, which would be why Dolly swung by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Friday night. Dolly doesn’t even have to try that hard to hustle a movie; technically all she has to do is smile and ask people to watch her lil’ ol movie, and I’m sure we’d all be so charmed into not only streaming it, but on a Netflix account we actually pay for. Dolly has that kind of power! But a legend like Dolly stays that way by telling entertaining stories, like how her husband Carl Thomas Dean has a threesome fantasy involving Jennifer Aniston.
The song “Jolene” by Dolly Parton is near and dear to my heart. My award winning (dive bar karaoke contest, Savannah GA, 2001) rendition of the 1973 hit brings down the house every time. So you’ll understand why I might feel a bit protective of it. According to Deadline, “Jolene” will be one of the songs featured in the upcoming Netflix anthology series Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings, a show that will dramatize 8 of Dolly’s “most beloved songs”. For the “Jolene” episode, Julianne Hough will play the titular home wrecking tramp and I’m left wondering, where are her flaming locks of auburn hair? Eyes of emerald green? I’m strongly against this casting choice but it seems Dolly’s on board, and she did write the song so I’m just going to have to let her have this one.
If you were wanting Dolly Parton’s on-screen reunion with Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda to be on Grace & Frankie, you’re out of luck. The country queen doesn’t do geriatric vibrators! At a recent panel, Jane talked more about the planned 9 To 5 sequel. And it sounds like they’ll be in charge this time around to impart wisdom on the youngins out there!
