Well i think that Mr dean will not apear in public, because he feels that his wife is the star not him. and he will be waiting for her at home where he has her to himself

"Why isn`t there a photo of Carl Dean?" a poster laments. Isn`t that typical - we the gossip-loving public care more about satisfying our immature curiosity whims than allowing other people to live out their happy lives the way they see fit. Carl Dean WANTS A PRIVATE LIFE. Let`s leave him in peace.

Carl Dean isn`t in photos because he told Dolly that he would rather stay at home, the limelight isn`t for him. I just read this in her book =D

I have looked everywhere for a photo of Carl Dean...Why is it there are none...He has a beautiful wife and should be jumping in front of the camera by her side
