Dolly Parton I threw away the big dough I collected from one success Whitney HoustonThe biggest hits – translating Dolly, no doubt – in the Black Tennessee community…something that didn’t seem to have been known until now.
The singer made the reveal this week during her appearance on “WWHL” with Andy Cohen, where he asked her… what was the best thing she had invested in with royalties she collected from Whitney’s version of ‘I Will Always Love You’… originally sung by DP.
Dolly gave an incredible answer… It also seemed like something no one had bothered to ask, but she was happy to share. Check out her response for yourself in the clip.
She told Andy that of the money she got in royalties—$10 million or so was reported, back in the ’90s—she ended up investing a decent amount in an office/commercial complex “off the beaten track” 16th Street in Nashville (a famous street near the city center).
More importantly, Dolly noticed that it was the part of the city where most of its black residents lived – and she felt there was no better place to be, as among the Whitney people…and Dolly’s people too, she pointed out. It’s unclear if Dolly has developed more there over the years…but anyway, it’s almost certain that she’s made some kind of major economic impact with her expenses.
It’s unclear where exactly Dolly’s property is… but it looks like she may still be using it all these years after that. And the craziest yet – she never really got the hang of it until Andy asked her about it, apparently. As many point out – this is just a dolly for you.
Another thing worth mentioning is Whitney and Dolly – during a fan Q&A segment, one person asked if there were ever plans for Dolly to perform I Will Always alongside Whitney, like in a duet version or something.. .just never happened. A very good question, Andy notes.
Her answer is amazing and kinda annoying…if you’re a fan of any of the artists.
Long story short, Dolly simply says…no, because no one has ever asked her to do it, though she added that she would have happily agreed to put Melody next to Whitney, assuming anyone approached her about it. Talk about a missed opportunity, huh???
As for how she thought she would have held up against the legendary WH tubes…that’s also expressive. Dolly is graceful as she has always been here.
