Years ago, Dolly Parton claimed that she took out an insurance policy on her breasts, with ABC News reporting in 2006 that the policy was worth a whopping $600,000.
But is that even true? “Today” show hosts Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager needed to know after a segment on their Jan. 19, 2022, show that revealed that Heidi Klum had insured her legs and Julia Roberts had insured her smile.
When Parton appeared on the show a little over a week later, on Jan. 27, to promote her new line of Southern-style cake mixes with Duncan Hines, Kotb and Bush Hager wanted more than just baking information.
So they asked that burning question: Are Parton’s breasts insured or not?
“It’s not true about that,” Parton told the hosts. “Years ago, was it Betty Grable, or one of the great famous stars that was famous also for her legs? And at that time I said, ‘Well maybe I should get my boobs insured since I’m famous for them,’ but it was just a joke. I didn’t do that.”
