AceShowbiz - Dolly Parton has been happily married to Carl Dean for over five decades and keeping it "open" is one of the keys that makes their relationship work. In her 2017 book "Dolly on Dolly, Interviews and Encounters with Dolly Parton", the country music legend explained that despite her weakness in men, their open relationship never turns sexual.
"Short, fat, bald or skinny - I've had crushes on some very unusual men but Carl knows I'll always come home and I'm not having sex with these people - I'm just flirting and having fun," the 76-year-old stressed. "He's not jealous and I'm not jealous of him. He knows I flirt. He flirts too. Yes, it's an open relationship, but not sexually and I would kill him if I thought he was doing that."
