Dolly Parton stopped by The Talk Thursday to talk with the hosts about her new TV movie, "Dolly Parton's Coat Of Many Colors"

During her visit to "The Talk," Dolly shared several memories including Elvis, Julia Roberts and the ladies from her hit movie, "9 To 5." She also talked about her family and growing up in East Tennessee. She said:

"We had a small house—and there's 12 of us in all by the time Mama was finished—and we slept three and four in a bed, so, the hardest part was half of 'em peed in the bed," she laughed. "You kind of got used to that. You'd have to take care of the little kids."
