Get a gander at Dolly Parton’s “other man!”
With her reclusive husband of 49 years back home in Tennessee, Dolly surprised her attorney with a picnic lunch in Los Angeles!
The “Nine to Five” star, 69, and lawyer Gerald Edelstein, 76, ate a cozy lunch together on Dec. 7, and then he walked Dolly to her car.
After she got into her vehicle, Dolly’s lunch date planted a smooch on her cheek! But a rep for Dolly insisted there are times when a kiss is just a kiss.
“A kiss on a cheek after a picnic lunch is hardly scandalous,” Peter Owens, Director of Communications for Dolly’s theme park Dollywood, told The National ENQUIRER.
The intimate peck probably wouldn’t bother Dolly’s husband, Carl Dean, 73.
They’ve rarely been seen in public together since they wed in May 1966!
Said a pal: “Theirs isn’t a traditional marriage, but it works for them.”
