Dolly Parton answered a series of rapid fire questions during her appearance on “Live with Kelly and Michael,” proving she can go toe-to-toe with the best of them.
Here are her questions and answers:
Kelly Ripa: Favorite color?
Dolly: Clairol, number 249
Michael Strahan: Do you get tired of dumb blonde jokes?
Dolly: No, because we know we’re not dumb and we [she and Kelly] know we’re not blonde
Kelly: What do you want on your tombstone?
Dolly: I think, uh … Tombstone … pepperoni, onions, mushrooms — the pizza, you mean?
Michael: First thing you do when you get out of bed in the morning?
Dolly: I usually get up, put on my clothes, and go home.
Kelly: Are they real?
Dolly: Well, of course not [motioning to her hands]. Do you think I could ever grow my nails that long?
Earlier in the show, Michael asked Dolly now that she’s receiving an honorary doctorate, if he could call her “Doctor Dolly” or “Double D?” Dolly said it wouldn’t be anything new to her because, “I’ve been called that for years.”
