Dolly Parton Explains How She Lost Dolly Parton Look-a-Like Contest (VIDEO)

Dolly Parton Explains How She Lost Dolly Parton Look-a-Like ContestDolly Parton admits she once lost a Dolly Parton look-a-like contest, and has difficulty choosing her own photo from a lineup of Parton impersonators on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM ET on ABC).

Parton said she once participated in a look-a-line contest with drag queens held on Santa Monica Boulevard and, amazingly, she lost.

"I come prancing across the stage with all these guys in their high heels that were at least 6'6" once they got dressed up. And here comes this little pygmy across the stage. And they just assumed that it wasn't me, so I lost the whole contest," she said.

Then, Robin Roberts tests Parton's ability to identify herself out of a group of impersonators and she initially fails. "I think you're trying to trick me. I think they're all different pictures of me, aren't they?" Parton asked.

Eventually, Parton is able to pick herself out, but only after she recognizes the outfit she's wearing in the photo.

I saw the segment on GMA with Dolly in this outfit. Don't get me wrong, I am a huge Dolly fan and think she still has the voice of an angel. But, yes a but, I wish Dolly or her handlers would realize that she is beginning to have that strange look that folks do who have a lot of plastic surgery. Maybe she could either do something a little less extreme or have doctors who've mastered the more natural look. Dolly has always been beautiful to me, but something about her mouth seems to be getting weird. Like I said, I love Dolly, she is, indeed, a national treasure.

Dolly is gorgeous in so many ways. If a man was blind he would know that Dolly is beautiful by her personality and laugh. If a man were deaf he would know that Dolly is beautiful just by watching her laugh. Her whole being enjoys life. God Bless you Dolly. Still love you after all these years.

None of those impersonators look like Dolly. Not enough to be convincing next to a real picture of her. All execpt for Dolly look like men in makeup. Either Dolly was being kind for the sake of the bit, or her eyes are gone.

How come she doesn't have children since she came from a big family?

i love dolly, she has the voice of an angel and the sense of humor of a devil. but i wish she'd find a better surgeon to fix that mess that some quack made of her face. yeah, i know dolly, you've said flat out that you'd nip/tuck/lift it all, but this look ain't right!

Oh my, as she has gotten older she's become a revolting and grotesque parody of her former self - a veritable parody and a grotesque one at that. Its hard to watch her in front of a camara.

I can understand that. Most people don't realize that she is not a very tall person. Amazingly enough, the photo you chose to go along with the article looks like you have Barbara Eden dressed as Dolly and not Dolly herself.
