Dolly Parton Slams False Cancer Reports

Parton explains why she was in the hospital.

"It is true that I had kidney stones," Parton said. "I had them removed three weeks ago and I am doing just fine!"

She continued, "I am back to work and last week I was at Dollywood filming parts for my new movie 'Coat of Many Colors.' With the 30th Anniversary of Dollywood, I did a full week of activities promoting my new DreamMore Resort's opening. There is absolutely no truth at all that I have stomach cancer. I love and appreciate everyone's concern."

Parton, 69, was responding to a story in a tabloid magazine and had no further comment.
