Hello, Dolly!

Yeah, it's true. I'm a big Dolly fan. How can you not love her? She's so incredibly over the top. So, unlike some of you, I was excited for Dolly Parton night on AI. While I pity the poor contestants for having to sing her hits, seeing Dolly was, as always, a sight for the eyes. But I also think she looked better than she has in recent years. The wig wasn't quite as yellow as it's been, and her skin didn't look as, hmm, injected. The metallic dress, the trademark laugh, the red lips, all awesome. And I loved the part where she joked about her tears messing up her false eyelashes. And when Kristy Lee sang The Coat of Many Colors, I cried. Don't laugh at me. You heard Dolly. It's a true story. I cried so hard that my tears DID mess up my false lashes.

Shut up. I had to buy them for the pageant party. They were $15! I had to wear them more than once.

Anyway, for the record, my favorite Dolly song is Hard Candy Christmas. I listen to it on my iPod at least once a week. Year-round. My second fave is Here You Come Again.

Okay, for a recap and commentary on tonight's episode, click on Natalie's Notables on the right. She's a AI recap pro!

Too bad you and Bo can't get together to watch Idol. Him with his suit jacket and tie, you with your false eye lashes. You two would be a sight!

I don't watch the show, but Ryan is a diehard Dolly fan. Loves her! Plus she got an honorary degree from my alma mater, Carson-Newman College, so she can't be all bad.

I'm pretty sure the only coat of many colors Kristy Lee has ever seen came from Bennetton.

Natalie, I was just telling Katie that I think Bo and I have a lot in common. But he's a pretty cool
5-year-old, so I feel okay with that.

I can't picture Ryan as a Dolly fan. Tee hee. He needs a cowboy hat.

ha ha. Nice one, Bowlby.
