Meet Dolly’s Wild Cousin Julia!
Sometimes the internet just drops a gift in your lap – that was the case with Julia Parton, who I didn’t know at all until her photo popped up on a social media page!
Julia has had quite the life – first, cousin to one of our most iconic personalities, Dolly Parton – and a career herself in provocative films, nude pictorials and as a men’s magazine publisher as well!
Julia was born in 1964 in Kentucky. Given her relation to Dolly, that makes sense!
This Actress / Model has used her last name to her advantage career-wise, but has also built a terrific portfolio of work on her own!
Julia got her start in the early 80’s, appearing in many “Electric Blue” videos – this company was one of the early leaders in the “VHS Erotica” field.
Soon, Julia was starring in films like these:
