Dolly Parton Went To Extreme Lengths To Avoid “Putting Out On A Date”


Dolly Parton has revealed the extraordinary events she faced to avoid putting out on a date when she was a teenager.

The country music icon was a guest on Jimmy Fallon and played the ‘true confession’ game with Fallon and Noah Centineo and all three were given two envelopes for the game.

Parton said “I dated a guy and he kicked me out of a car and made me walk home at night through a forest with bears and bob cats”. Which prompted Fallon to ask her “What year was this?”

“I was a teenager, I was about 17 or 18 years old” said Parton. Centineo then asked her did she encounter any bears or bobcats.

“Absolutely, I’ve heard them, felt them”. She was then asked about her date’s car.

“Well, I know it was a really good car because I had a date with a boy and I only dated him cause he had a car and it was a nice car, I think it was a Chevy maybe a ’57 or something like that”.

Then she made the shocking revelation.

“Well, it was a put out or get out situation, so he kicked me out to walk home”.

Dolly Parton then revealed that the incident occurred near the Smokey mountains in Tennessee.

“This was up in the Smokey Mountains of East Tennessee, and we were about five miles from my home and that’s way back in the Mountains. I mean where there are bears and bob cats and there are those toothless mountain men in addition to the bears and all of that, so that was not a pleasant place to be.”

Both Fallon and Centineo had to guess if the story was true or false. Parton said it was true and she said she learned a valuable lesson from the incident.

“I did learn something that night though, I thought if that ever happens to me again, I’m definitely giving it up, I would rather be chewed on by a boy than a bear.”
