Dolly Parton: Carl Dean ‘Can’t Get It out to Pee, Much Less Get It up for 3’ With Jennifer Aniston
Country music megastar Dolly Parton has many talents and hilarity is definitely one of them. As such, she makes a great late-night guest. And that’s exactly where she revealed her husband, Carl Dean, is “crazy” about Jennifer Aniston. But she ended the discussion with this claim about him: “He can’t get it out to pee, much less get it up for three.”
What else did Parton have to say about Dean and Aniston in the side-splitting interview? Plus, how long has she been married and what’s behind that talk of an open arrangement?
Dolly Parton said Carl Dean fantasizes about a threesome with Jennifer Aniston
While chatting with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, Parton revealed that Dean was excited for her to work with Jennifer Aniston for the 2018 film, Dumplin’. As Parton tells it, the Friends star personally called her and requested she take on the music for the movie.
But that’s not what piqued Dean’s interests, Parton shared. She said he’s just “crazy about” Aniston. And she got a bit more candid than that about her husband’s thought processes.
“See, I think he kinda fantasizes, like, a threesome with us,” she told Fallon, sending him and the audience into a hilarious uproar. “I’m serious!”
“Carl, hey,” Fallon laughed. “Carl, go to bed!”
“I’m serious! He does,” Parton continued before quipping, “I mean he can’t even get it out to pee, much less get it up for three.”
Dolly Parton: ‘I met him at the Wishy Washy and he’s been wishy washy ever since’
While Parton may make a joke at Dean’s expense from time to time, their marriage seems solid. And as luck would have it, she met Dean because she didn’t do laundry before leaving home for Nashville. So, when she got there to start her music career, she needed to start with a chore.
Parton told Interview magazine in 1984, “I met [Dean] the first day I got to Nashville, in 1964. I graduated on a Friday night, went to Nashville on a Saturday morning with dirty clothes and I went to a laundromat looking for anything but love.”
Parton was only 18 but said she was already a little tapped out on romance. She moved to be more career-focused but life had other plans.
“I had just left two boyfriends back home and I wasn’t looking to get involved because I had gone to Nashville to really get started in the business,” she went on. “I met him at the Wishy Washy and he’s been wishy washy ever since.”
She said, “We dated for two years before we got married.”
“I often get myself in love trouble because I’m so passionate,” she added. “I love so much and so deep. But Carl’s a special guy, I didn’t have any problems with him.”
But as she has frequently shared, he doesn’t like the spotlight. So, they’ve rarely been seen together by the public in more than 55 years.
Dolly Parton has an ‘open marriage’ with Carl Dean, but that doesn’t mean she’s sharing with Jennifer Aniston
While speaking of Dean, Parton has often noted how their differences make their union work. He’s a homebody, she likes to travel — so, she says it makes the time she’s home with him all the more special. And that works well for them, it seems.
According to The Mirror, Parton admitted that she loves to flirt with men and she knows Dean flirts, too. They aren’t jealous of that, she said. But she noted either partner in the “open marriage” would have an angry response to a sexual affair. So, it’s not quite as open as some observers may have thought.
In the end, while Parton joked she has her doubts about Dean’s ability to show Aniston a good time, it sounds like she might have something else to say to him if he did.
