Parton's Husband Says No To The Oscars

Country superstar Dolly Parton will be walking the red carpet without her husband Carl Dean on Oscar night (05MAR06) - because he refuses to attend the glitzy awards show as her date.

The singer, whose TRAVELIN' THRU' tune from hit film Transamerica is nominated in the Achievement In Music Written For Motion Pictures category, had hoped to take her husband, but ultra-private Dean will not be joining her.

Parton says, "My date's gonna be DUNCAN TUCKER, the writer/director of Transamerica, because he's just such a wonderful guy and he'll make a good escort.

"My husband wouldn't go anyway, so I'd either have to find somebody else's husband or take Duncan."

And Parton insists she isn't going to let her husband's anti-social behaviour upset her big night.

She adds, "I'm gonna walk the red carpet and do all that stuff and get a chance to see some of those big movie stars I've always wanted to meet. I'm gonna make a night of it."
