Dolly Parton Calls Her ALS Ice Bucket Challenge a ‘Wet T-Shirt Contest’ [Watch]

No one thought she would do it, but the always glamorous Dolly Parton has completed the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge … in a way only she could.

Parton was nominated for the frigid challenge by several people, one of whom being her duet partner and pal Kenny Rogers. Rogers doubted her ability, but Patron rose to the challenge! It was his doubt that gave the iconic blonde singer the kick she needed to accept, which she did gracefully from her colorful porch in Nashville.

Oh, and she had a few words for Rogers, too.

“This was not on my bucket list, if you’ll pardon the expression,” Parton says cleverly. “A lot of people challenged me. Kenny Rogers dared me. Kenny said, ‘You’ll never do it with your false hair, your false eyelashes and your false nails.’ Kenny, you’d be surprised at what all I do with my falses for a good cause and a good laugh.”

Parton enlisted two of her nieces to do the dumping, and they appeared happy to help out. The songstress even shared a photo of the girls when they were little, kissing their aunt, but now, “they’re willing to drown me.”

Before she let them do the dumping, Parton removed her earrings, her pink scarf and her plastic shoes. “They’re plastic,” she explains of her shoes, adding, “but then again, so is the rest of me — but that’s besides the point.”

Her nieces replaced the melted ice in their buckets while Parton wiggled in anticipation. Naturally, as soon as she was soaking wet, she let out a scream. The songstress encouraged others to get in and donate before making one last joke at Rogers’ expense.

“Yes, I have on a bra,” she reveals. “Kenny, you have to pay extra for the wet t-shirt contest.”
