Dolly Parton Confirms Whether Or Not She’s Secretly Hiding Tattoos All Over Her Body

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

There have been rumors going around that Dolly Parton is secretly inked up with tons of tattoos. The 74-year-old has finally confirmed whether or not she secretly has tons of tattoos on her body. “I do have some tattoos, that’s true,” she tells PEOPLE. “But they’re tasteful. I’m not a tattoo girl.”

She has officially shot down any rumors speculating that she has fully inked up arms. Not true! It was actually a medical issue that first led her to get some tattoos. “My tattoos are pretty, they’re artful and they usually started out to cover some scar, not to make a big statement,” she says. “Ribbons and bows and butterflies are the things that I have. I was very sick for a while and I had to wear a feeding tube. It left a little indention in my side and I didn’t like it because I’m so fair that scars turn purple on me.”

She continues, “I like to make positives out of negatives. I had a little beehive tattooed over it — a little yellow-and-brown beehive with a tiny little bee on top of the hive. The mouth of it is that little sinkhole.”

Parton has also confirmed she does not have a tattoo of her husband, Carl Dean. “No, he’s tattooed on my heart,” she says with a laugh. “Who knows, I may get some more later. I may just have to get covered with tattoos just so everybody could be right!”

She does have a few tasteful tattoos

These tattoo rumors have been around for a pretty long time, almost as long as the tattoo themselves! “People said the other day that the reason you wear sleeves is because you have snakes tattooed all over. I said, ‘No, I don’t!’” she says to Savannah Guthrie back in 2014. “I do have a few little tattoos, but they were mostly done to cover scars ‘cause I’m so fair.” Parton adds that she has tattoos where they aren’t visible to the naked eye.
Parton also reveals how she deals with circulating rumors, saying that she just laughs it all off. “Oh, yeah! I always laugh at them. One, it shows up about every three years in the tabloids, where I’m bedridden because my boobs are so heavy that I’m crippled for life on my back. I just laugh. Well, they are heavy, but they haven’t crippled me yet.”

A Magazine Article In the ’80s Predicted Computers, DVRs, And More

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

In a 1980 magazine article, David Lachenbruch made some pretty bold predictions that ended up coming true! For starters, he predicted how smart our television would soon become, including the use of remotes and DVRs.

He said, “If there are two good shows on at the same time, you direct one to ‘storage’ – when it comes on, it’s automatically recorded for you to view whenever you wish. You don’t have to touch the video recorder, which is kept out of sight in the component cabinet; everything is controlled from the wireless touch-pad panel.”

David Lachenbruch made some incredible predictions of technology in the future

David also predicted flat-screen TVs which were radically different than the televisions of the ’80s. In addition, he talked about cable and satellite TV. He predicted how many homes would have antennas that would pick up hundreds of channels. His predictions weren’t limited to just TVs though. He spoke about a “satellite screen with a typewriter-like keyboard.” It sounds a lot like the computers and laptops we use now!

He said, “In addition to displaying textual material, it also provides color pictures, diagrams, and animation on request. Being a two-way system, it can, for example, display on request a timetable of all flights to Phoenix and make a reservation for you. Your desk may also contain a printout device to make typed copies of any text material that appears on the screen.”

Something he didn’t get quite right? Trackers for children sewn into clothing! We can now track our kids with smartphones. However, I don’t know of anyone who sews in tracking devices to their kid’s clothing. He predicted, “Each of your offspring has a tiny electronic ‘locater’ button sewn into his or her clothing; when you press the locate key on your home terminal, a map of the neighborhood appears on the screen with a different colored dot indicating the location of each child.”

Pretty interesting!

Tabloids Allege Emma Heming Willis Demands Demi Moore Back Off, Photos Show The Truth

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Bruce Willis and Demi Moore always had something of an unconventional relationship. They separated in 1998 and finalized their divorce by 2000. Since then, they became an example of exes who could remain friends. But, reportedly, his current wife Emma Heming Willis wants Moore to create some distance between her and Willis.

This may have even resulted in Heming Willis telling Moore to “back off.” The tabloid New Idea alleges that a slew of photos featuring the exes acted as the straw that broke the camel’s back. Claims of “infatuation” surfaced against Moore, too.

1987 #Emmys… arriving in style.

When the pandemic induced nationwide lockdowns, Bruce Willis actually quarantined with Demi Moore instead of Emma Heming Willis. The exes have three adult daughters and Willis has two young daughters with Emma. The setup turned a few heads and tabloids use it to frame grievances from Heming Willis.

On Moore’s end, everything seemed candid and friendly. She even posted a throwback photo of herself and Willis as they arrived at the Emmys in 1987. She further captioned the photo, shared one week ago, “1987 #Emmys… arriving in style.” Comments called them a “dream couple,” and “two of the most beautiful people.” Outlets and alleged inside sources claimed Emma Heming Willis did not share this sentiment. However, pictorial evidence from Heming Willis herself paints a different picture.

An insider claims that Emma has had enough. According to this tipster, no one is entirely sure what Moore is “playing at,” but acknowledges her photos get more reactions when they have Bruce Willis in them. The insider also claims Moore leans on her ex in multiple ways, resulting in Heming Willis considering her a “troubled daughter.” Her online presence, they claim, is her way of keeping an eye on things. Looking at her posts, the 1987 Emmy throwback photo did contain Willis and get praise. One comment did ask “Why are they so hooked up on their exs?” One reply noted that the date she shared the picture falls just before 2020’s Emmy Awards on September 20, making it an innocent way to celebrate the encroaching festivities.

Furthermore, they claim Emma and her biological daughters “have gone through so many ups and down with Bruce’s first family.” Now, they go on, Heming Willis wants Demi Moore to move off of her “infatuation” with Willis so they can have space to raise their daughters. They specify, “now things are more settled with his eldest three, she wants Demi to let her get on with raising her to let two girls.” Regarding space, Moore’s daughter Scout noted the true nature to their quarantining setup. She explained her stepmother intended on joining them right away. But a hospital visit upended those plans. Then, when the blended family did totally converge, they celebrated Emma’s birthday together. It can be seen in the picture she herself shared on Instagram. What do you think about their relationships?

Her children wrote, “It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Helen Reddy, on the afternoon of September 29, 2020, in Los Angeles.

Whatever Happened To Kami Cotler, Elizabeth Walton From ‘The Waltons?’

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Decades past saw an appreciation for shows that talked about families. They could be comedies that let people laugh at life’s absurdities. Or they could be serious and give people inspirations to aspire to. The Waltons, for the most part, provided the latter and the whole cast brought their best performances. That includes Kami Cotler, who played young Elizabeth Walton. What happened to the actress who played the baby of the family?

Born on June 17, 1965, Kami Cotler grew up in and around Long Beach, California. Californai would be the site for a lot of her big career moments. She was only six when she took up the mantle of Elizabeth Walton in The Homecoming: A Christmas Story in 1971.

A broad start to acting as Elizabeth Walton

Around the time when The Waltons was created, Kami Cotler was busy making a name for herself. By that point, she was in all 13 episodes of a TV show created by Garry Marshall entitled Me and the Chimp. That did not last long after its 13-episode run, but she got the gig because of her renown with the Walton clan.

Even just her work on The Homecoming: A Christmas Story gained her fame as she was on Marshal’s program and TV movie The Heist (1972). Similar to her castmate Eric Scott, she appeared on an episode of Family Feud. The theme pitted the Dukes of Hazard against the Walton family, so she was casted as herself. From 1980 to 2004, her filmography becomes dominated by Waltons-themed specials.

Staying in the business, learning from the past

The Waltons gave Kami Cotler a lot at a very young age. The giving lasted throguhout her lifetime, even today at the age of 55. Even when working on other projects, the iconic family’s influence can be felt. This is prominent in the 2018 made-for-TV movie Christmas on Honeysuckle Lane.

Cotler goes uncredited in this movie and fans should not look at it as a sign of a return to Hollywood. Instead, she had to help her sister out. Mary McDonough, who played her TV sister Erin, wrote a novel. That novel then became the Hallmark movie in question. Elizabeth Walton and Erin Walton stick together.

What is Kami Cotler doing now?

Today, Kami Cotler mostly stays out of the major limelight. Her acting really ceased when she pursued her education at the University of California, Berkeley, where she earned a degree in the social sciences. After pursuing her education, she helped others have an enriched learning experience as a 9th grade teacher. She went on to work with an education consulting business to ensure students get the best shot.

Cotler keeps herself very busy beyond the world of Hollywood. For a time, she ran a travel boutique company and a San Francisco cafe. While today she does not dive back into acting, she can be counted on to return for any Waltons events. In fact, she even organized the 40th anniversary. She also takes time to revisit the show on her YouTube channel! No one could be a more perfect Elizabeth Walton!
