Dolly Parton Lists West Hollywood Crash Pad

SELLER: Dolly Parton
LOCATION: West Hollywood, CA
PRICE: $1,395,000
SIZE: 1,091 square feet, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: The long-legged blond at Trulia Luxe Living revealed today that Dolly Parton listed her West Hollywood crash pad for $1,395,000. (The house is remarkably small but it sorta makes sense Miz Parton maintains a West Coast pied-a-terre in the heart of Boys Town, don't it?)

The compact and extensively fenced and gated bungalow in the Norma Triangle 'nabe, is said to be the childhood home of Natalie Wood and was quietly acquired by the prodigiously talented and high camp country queen April 2007 for $1.2 million.

Listing details indicate the bantam bungalow was originally built in 1923 and currently has two bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,091 square feet. There's off-street parking for several cars—a real bonus in this tightly packed 'hood—several porches, a small tiled terrace with a garden shed and a detached one-car garage turned into one of the strangest little guest cottages this property gossip has ever laid our boozy eyes. (More on that in a brief moment.)

We love us some Dolly Parton, children. We really do and, once upon a time in the not too distant past, Your Mama and the Dr. Cooter paid big bucks for prime seats at Radio City Music Hall to watch the anatomically illogical superstar knock her Showbiz ball out of the damn park. But, seriously, how does this woman not knock all that tchotcke around with her giant personality and super-sized chest and/or snag her big ol' wigs on all that country crap that clings to ever surface available in the itty-bitty cottage?

And what about that room? You know which one we're talking about, the garage cum guesthouse one the buff-toned leather recliner and the toilet set out in the open right up next to the kitchenette. We don't mean to be crude, children, but a person could make microwave popcorn and take a dump at the same time. How–ahem—unusually convenient.

Miz Parton, according to The Bizzy Boys at Celebrity Address Aerial, owns several other homes and homesteads including a small cottage near the zoo in Nashville and a large estate surrounded by housing developments near Brentwood, TN. They also keep a wee place in rugged Idyllwild, CA, and a vast tract of land outside Pigeon Forge, TN, not so far from where Miz Parton grew up in extremely humble circumstances.

Wow! Its absolutely hideous. Now I love Miss Parton to death but my god what was she thinking. That one little room with the kitchenette looks just like Truvie's Beauty Spot!

Not ONE child had better make fun of Ms Dolly!! She is so fantastic. There had better be a bidding war on this property, because SHE owned it.

Mama (with all due respect), the answer to your question is that she is REAL. Talented, authentic, secure in ever regard, knows what her values are, REAL. The opposite of Hollywood (which is probably why she founded Dollywood) no?

Authentic in every regard? Hmmm

Yes 4:04 Ms Dolly has NEVER lied about her help from the plastic surgeon. No doubt you have.

I'm doubting Miss Dolly ever spent a night in this house. Would wager a dozen donuts this place has some tawdry backstory though.

Did I see a refrigerator in the bedroom? This place is pretty tacky and no pool

OMFG. How could anyone sleep in that nightmarish disaster? Who would pay the asking, except to pull the thing down, send the crap to the dump (not even the poor need that crap), and start all over again. She a nice lady, but her taste, OMFG.

The price to look this cheap? $1,395,000!

I love Dolly, but I don't think Jolene took her man away; he ran away from this mess!

Seriously, though. Saw her show at Gibson Theater next to Universal Studios in '07. Completly scripted with lame boob and Smokey Mountain jokes. But she knocked our socks off when she sang and played several guitars and a zither. Super talented woman who has a place in my heart. Hope to see her in concert again!

Big kiss to Mama Dearest and Dolly

Dolly is very creative and artistic, and her house shows it. Not my particular taste, but it's pure Dolly. All it needs is some butterflies.
