Howard Stern has upset Dolly Parton after he ran a segment on his show where he used clips of Parton’s audio book to make her say some nasty things. Stern has used audio book clips in the past to make celebrities say things they never intended for the sake of crude humor, but Parton feels he has gone too far in creating the segment.
“I have never been so shocked, hurt and humiliated in all my life,” Parton says in a statement. “I cannot believe what Howard Stern has done to me. In a blue million years, I would never have such vulgar things come out of my mouth. They have done editing or some sort of trickery to make this horrible, horrible thing. Please accept my apology for them and certainly know I had nothing to do with this.”
“If there was ever going to be a lawsuit, it’s going to be over this,” she continued. “Just wanted you to know that I am completely devastated by this.”
