Reba On Dolly: "A Diamond In A Business Filled With Rhinestones"

Long overdue recognition! (Photo by J. SCOTT APPLEWHITE/ MANUEL BALC, ASSOCIATED PRESS) Dolly Parton gathers with her fellow Kennedy Center honorees. Clockwise from left are Zubin Mehta, Steven Spielberg, Smokey Robinson and Andrew Lloyd Webber. Dolly Parton, Zubin Mehta and Smokey Robinson stand with first lady Laura Bush and President Bush for the national anthem at the gala at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

Nashville's Tennessean picked up some wonderful testiments from other distaff country stars about Dolly's personna and influence on them. Reba was as gracious as usual. Actress Reese Witherspoon, a Volunteer State native, spoke in Parton's honor, noting that she'd always felt a kinship with the writer and performer of songs including "Jolene," "I Will Always Love You" and "Coat of Many Colors."
"She was blond, I was blond," Witherspoon said. "She was from Tennessee, I was from Tennessee. She had an amazing figure … I was from Tennessee."

OK, (now that we have the positive and uplifting stuff out of the way), let's get to the Nitty Gritty from D.C. city: where there is "The Tale Of 3 Red Dresses:"
The White House`s latest crisis came in the form of a fashion disaster when three holiday party guests arrived wearing the same dress as First Lady Laura Bush. Lots o' clever clicks...
