Rumor from FOX 43 NEWS that she has died of congested heart failure. Can anyone confirm this? I have looked through the Internet and cannot find but one website on it.

nobody worry, THIS IS FALSE

Aug. 26, 2008 — Dolly Parton fans went crazy when they heard the news: Dolly died from congestive heart failure. The story might have actually even been treated as news by one or two official news organizations. Except that it wasn’t true.

Dolly, at last report, was still alive, working and looking forward to next month’s debut of the 9 To 5 stage production in Los Angeles.

"I’m fine," she told Nashville television station WKRN. "I did about have a heart attack when I found out I was dead. But I am feeling better than ever."

It’s hardly the first time a celebrity has been erroneously reported to have met his or her Maker. It happened to Paul McCartney. It happened to Chet Atkins. And it happened to Mark Twain. In every instance, their passing was — to quote the affable Twain — "greatly exaggerated." A phrase that fits Dolly quite proportionately.

when i first heard about it myself, my friend told me she heard it on the radio this morning, and even though it was already proven false when she told me, i had to call a NBC in knoxville just to make sure for myself. i was upset that someone would start a cruel rumor about such a sweet person. it literally made me cry, because dolly is one of my heroes, and i just couldn't believe it. but thank God that it is false!
