DOLLY Parton is planning a secret “commitment” ceremony with her longtime rumored lesbian love, Judy Ogle.
The singer is said to be arranging a spectacular surprise blowout for her “nuptials” with Judy, complete with a custom-made bridal gown for her bride, and their closest galpals as guests.
Dolly and Judy have been best friends since third grade.
Parton has insisted the pair have never been sexually intimate and has repeatedly denied that she is a lesbian — but has also admitted that the two share a bed when they travel together.
“Dolly is intent on solidifying her love for Judy in a semi-official ceremony,” a source told the National Enquirer.
“While Dolly can’t legally take Judy as her spouse since she’s still married to Carl, this ‘commitment’ ceremony will be the next best thing. It will take the spiritual bond they’ve shared since grade school to the next level.
“The car accident was a big wakeup call for Dolly. She was jolted into realizing that she came very close to losing Judy, and now she wants to make the most of the time they have left together.
“She’s considering several venues, including tropical spots in the Caribbean or even the small home adjacent to her offices in Sevierville, Tenn.
“Her plantation house is probably out of the question, because that’s where she’s likely to renew her wedding vows with Carl in 2016.
“And since Judy has never been married, Dolly’s arranged to have a white couture wedding dress made for her to wear on their big day.
“Even though it will be a small affair, Dolly is sparing no expense. It will be a day of luxury and indulgence for Dolly and Judy and their guests.”
Dolly kicked off her Blue Smoke Tour in Rancho Mirage, Calif., on Jan. 24, which is slated to run through July 11 and include shows in Australia, New Zealand and Europe.
“Dolly will likely plan her ceremony with Judy after the tour,” said the insider. “Late summer or early fall would be the perfect time.
“For Dolly, it’s not about the whole world knowing about her special relationship with Judy. This ceremony is meant to show Judy that Dolly cherishes her in every conceivable way.
“Dolly wants Judy to know beyond a doubt that she intends for them to be as close as two peas in a pod for the rest of their days.”
