Dolly Parton said a year ago that she wanted to recreate her 1978 Playboy magazine cover during her 75th year, and when Dolly says things, they tend to happen. She did just that for her husband Carl Dean’s birthday.
Dolly posted a video on her Instagram last night (7/20) in which she said in part, “Hey, today is July 20, it’s my husband Carl’s birthday. And you’re probably wondering why I’m dressed like this well it’s for my husband’s birthday.”
She explained, “Remember sometime back I said I was going to pose in Playboy Magazine when I’m 75? Well, I’m 75, and they don’t have a magazine anymore, but my husband always loved the original cover of Playboy. So, I was trying to think of something to do to make him happy. He still thinks I’m a hot chick after 57 years and, I’m not going to try to talk him out of that, and I hope he agrees. What do you think? Anyway, what I did for his birthday, I did a photoshoot in this little outfit, and I had a cover made of the new Dolly or the old new Dolly.”
Parton then joked, “In the first one, see, remember this? I was kind of a little butterball in that one. Well, I’m string cheese now, but he’ll probably think I’m cream cheese, I hope.”
“Anyway, I’m going to surprise him going in singing to him in my little bunny suit, so what do you think? You think Playboy oughta pay me for at least a photoshoot? I do!”
