I was reading one of my daily newspapers yesterday The Sun (English newspaper) and there was an article about Priscilla which said -
Elvis Presleys widow is spending the new year in an Irish castle.
Why do the newspapers always get it wrong?
I will contact them about this but it won`t do any good.
Don`t they realise she is Elvis`s ex-wife.

Divorced means marriage DISOLVED meaning NO LONGER VALID but she is persistant isn't she?

Yes, she is Diane.... and it sure makes me sick that people still say she is his widow.... She is the only person that I have ever heard of that that claims that even now. (29 years later and another son later)

Some people have been married and divorced(to differnent people) 5,6,7 times wonder what that makes them when their x's -die? :hmm: :hmm: :hmm: :doh: I always thought divorced ... meant over, finished , done !!! Dovey;)

I saw an article about that at http://www.newkerala.com/news4.php?action=fullnews&id=72626

The article states:

The two Presleys will be staying at the exclusive Castle Gorteen Le Poer in Kilasheen, Co Tipperary, the home of Priscilla's pal, the reclusive Austrian artist Gottfried Helnwein.


Hmmmm....is Gottfried the new man in her life?

I wonder what kind of deal they have made at Priscilla?s home and what her son might think about his "widow" mother ... it?s amazing what people is able to do and say for money and how much of it they can make out of others hard work and talent.
Have a fun new year?s eve :xmas:

i feel sorry for the guy Priscilla lives with, maybe he doesn't care, but hell i think if i wsa him it might annoy me that she considers herself Elvis' widow (divorced long time ago now over 30 years ain't it) ahead of her current relo, which must be close to 20 years long.

And a ex-wife is a ex-wife not a widow. As Elvis Presley fan we must remember her

Dovey;) I for one, despite the fact I have been married and divorced twice myself, don't believe in divorce. Priscilla may or may not technically be Elvis' widow, but nonetheless, the loss she felt when he died 30 years ago would have been the same even if they'd stayed married. As for her son, I think he's probably quite proud of her.:hmm:

It's the article that claims Priscilla is the widow, it's not Priscilla saying she's the widow...as mentioned in the quote above...

No it is not Priscilla in the article claiming to be Elvis' widow but she never tries to correct that does she? And she's yet again found someone new so soon after the breakup with Marco. I can't believe her feelings go deep for any man when she flits from one to the next as soon as her relationship goes wrong so quickly and she has passed that down to her daughter........

I don?t want to start another argument based on the same silly thing but she claims she is since she keeps using her ex-husband name. Some people like her and some people don?t but is very clear she wants to be known for being his widow, she would use her real name or would have remarried if it wasn?t like that.
We just started 2007 but some things never change LOL

01-01-2007, 07:26 PM
I don't want to start another argument either Donut but the new year didn't suddenly change my mind about Priscilla. The new year is just beginning and who knows, maybe I'll finally learn something about her that I will like - hope so.

This is a subject that I should stay away from too because I truly am amazed at how some people look at her.. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ is how I look at her... she changed her name after the divorce -she did not need or want the Pre$ley name ... why change it back after the guy leaves this earth.. simple answer for me $$$$$$$$ ....

When are fans going to say enough is enough with this gold-digging, self-absorbed, overly vain woman and her no-talent, crude daughter? Who the he** cares where they're spending the holidays?

What we know is that they have both made a very successful life sponging off Elvis. Were it not for him, neither of them would be anything, no one would give them a notice.

Someone said we should care about Priscilla because she was married to Elvis - baloney! And fans are under no obligation to like anything LM does simply because she's his biological daughter.

Priscilla is a user - she's used Elvis for 45 years now . . . and she's gotten exactly what she's wanted, all the way, no matter how many times she's had to change her "versions" of stories to suit the occasion or to suit herself.

Lisa is a disgrace - she placed the infamous "F" before the very name that has allowed her to enjoy privileges she doesn't deserve, and she discards husbands as if it's no big deal - she's every bit as much a freak as Jackson. Same goes for the "goth" Priscilla (or should I say Ozzy Osbourne meets the Joker from Batman?) - Scientology, this freakish Irish "artist" (please), their lifestyle choices, their no-class commercialism of Elvis - shameful.

Elvis wouldn't, IMO, have approved of either of them and what they've done and are doing.

I was going to remain neutral on this like Jak, but after this post, I can't. Priscilla and Lisa Marie are both sweet wonderful women who have earned their own recognition outside the Presley name. I think this trashing of them by you is uncalled for, considering they haven't done anything to you personally. As for Lisa Marie's changes in husbands, it can be very hard to find the right one to compliment your life. I was married and divorced twice myself, so I don't think that's an issue. And comparing her to Michael Jackson? I'm sorry, but she is not a "freak" as you put it.....he is on the other hand. And who to say Scientology is a bad thing....it works for them, as it has for thousands of others, just like many people are devout Catholics, or Jews. Lastly, who's to say that Priscilla's current companion is that bad....we don't know him, she does. So as far as I'm concerned I will always feel that Priscilla and Lisa Marie are wonderful people.

Just to come in on the Scientology thing.

Elvis detested Scientology, and now, seeing as Lisa and Priscilla generate huge amounts out of Elvis's legacy, the money his life and work continues to make is handed over by Priscilla and Lisa to the quacks at the Churh of Scientology.

Besides the whole thing is based on the beliefs of a Science Fiction author - Ron Hubbard.

Personally I find it amusing anyone could buy into it.

Scientology attacks free speech,attempts to stop psychiatric treatment - because it's evil, and is quite decietful.

The Wealth generated by Scientology does not benefit it's members or society - it's really only a 'religion' for tax purposes.

It promotes elitism - celebrity centre!

Priscilla and Lisa are like goats, following this nonsense - spending Elvis's money on things he detested.

LOL . . . Sweet, wonderful women? Actually, I met Priscilla several years ago, and she was surprisingly nice. But that doesn't change my opinion about how she's used Elvis. She's lied countless times to suit herself, and Lisa is crude and showed absolute, total disrespect to her father by adding the "F" in front of HIS name - the name SHE has depended on for almost 39 years. These women have "earned" NOTHING - but then perhaps you have a different definition than I of what it means to truly earn privilege and reward. Neither of them have done anything on their own. The ONLY "recognition" they have stems from Elvis and thus, EVERYTHING they have done or will ever do is because of WHO they are . . . and the only reason anyone gives either of them a second look or thought is because of the association to ELVIS.


I think this trashing of them by you is uncalled for,

Actually, it's not for you to say . . . many posters on this forum say what they think, and many on this thread have "trashed" her, but you attack me? I'm entitled to MY opinions, just as you are.


considering they haven't done anything to you personally.

That's not even a valid point for discussion.

If you care about Elvis - you'd care about what HE would think about what these two have done to his name, his image, and with HIS $$$$.


As for Lisa Marie's changes in husbands, it can be very hard to find the right one to compliment your life.

Yeah, not everyone gets it right the first time . . . but four husbands before age 40 . . . please . . . she has no respect for marriage . . . actually, she hasn't proven to have respect for much of anything in life, has she?


And comparing her to Michael Jackson? I'm sorry, but she is not a "freak" as you put it.....he is on the other hand.

She married the freak, hung around with freaks, so that makes HER a freak.


And who to say Scientology is a bad thing....it works for them, as it has for thousands of others, just like many people are devout Catholics, or Jews.

And on what stable aspects of their life do you base THAT opinion? They're clearly screwed up . . . Pris is vain, insecure, caught in her Elvis-controlled past, so obsessed with plastic surgery her beauty is now distorted . . . she failed as a mother, not once, but twice . . . and it's not worth the time to write here about how dysfunctional LM is . . .


Lastly, who's to say that Priscilla's current companion is that bad....we don't know him, she does.

We don't know if this freakish "artist" is her "companion" and I couldn't care less if he is or isn't. He's just another weirdo in their lives.


So as far as I'm concerned I will always feel that Priscilla and Lisa Marie are wonderful people.

YOUR opinion . . . you are entitled to that or any other opinions, but don't condemn or scold anyone else who disagrees with you.

When elvis was alive he wouldn't people to treat his family with some respect, but l guess his wishes aren't granted.

YOUR opinion . . . you are entitled to that or any other opinions, but don't condemn or scold anyone else who disagrees with you.Ok, the bell just rang for round 2......"don't condemn or scold anyone else who disagrees with you.", gee, I kind of thought that's what YOU were doing to me and my opinions....but, moving on.....Priscilla has never once "used" Elvis as you put it to advance her own career or make her life better. She went out and became an actress, ON HER OWN, (and a darn good one she is if I might say so), and did so without the advancement of "using" Elvis. The recognition Lisa Marie recieves now is not so much of her father, but because she happens to be a very talented woman....you'd notice that was obvious if you listened to her music. She is a very gifted writer, just read the lyrics to "Nobody Noticed It", and you'll see what I mean. And she hasn't exactly "depended" on the name Presley, after all, she is Elvis' daughter. It's not like she had a different name when born, and then later changed it to gain recognition....jeez.
As for this comment, "Actually, it's not for you to say . . . many posters on this forum say what they think, and many on this thread have "trashed" her, but you attack me? I'm entitled to MY opinions, just as you are.", I never said you weren't entitled to your opinions. I just didn't like how you trashed Prscilla or Lisa Marie. I've been upset at others for the same. I never singled you out personally.
As far as this goes, "If you care about Elvis - you'd care about what HE would think about what these two have done to his name, his image, and with HIS $$$$.", I do care about Elvis, more than you will ever know, and so far, I have never seen any misuse of Presley funds by either of them. If I did, I'd speak up about it. I've been perfectly pleased with how both Priscilla and Lisa Marie have handled things through the years.
And for this comment, "Yeah, not everyone gets it right the first time . . . but four husbands before age 40 . . . please . . . she has no respect for marriage . . . actually, she hasn't proven to have respect for much of anything in life, has she?", all I have to say is I'm 37, been married and divorced twice, my mom's been married three, and we have plenty of respect for marriage. Just because Lisa Marie's had four husbands doesn't mean she has any respect for marriage. You want to try again?
You know, I almost had to laugh at your next comment, "She married the freak, hung around with freaks, so that makes HER a freak. ", because if that were the case, then, it could also be stated if I married a leper, hung around lepers, that'd make me a leper. Come on, get real!
"They're clearly screwed up . . . Pris is vain, insecure, caught in her Elvis-controlled past, so obsessed with plastic surgery her beauty is now distorted . . . she failed as a mother, not once, but twice . . . and it's not worth the time to write here about how dysfunctional LM is . . .", oh I really loved this one.....:lmfao: , I mean, who in life, isn't screwed up one way or another? Who doesn't have flaws? Who ever said they were perfect? And I don't think Priscilla failed as a mother.....she raised a wonderful young woman in an enviroment that was tough to do. (Lisa being with her sometimes, and with Elvis others.) I don't know anybody who isn't a little bit dysfunctional because of the way they grew up. For instance, I take after my mother, my older brother, he takes after our father. If Lisa Marie seems a little more dysfunctional than any other person, think for a moment of the circumstancers of her chilhood....parents divorced at an early age, going back and forth from being pampered by Elvis to trying to have a normal life with Priscilla, and on top of all that, she loses her father at an early age. You and I never had to experience a life like that.....so who are either of us to call Lisa Marie dysfunctional in the first place?
Lastly, as far as Scientology goes, Elvis may or may not have liked or understood it, but for Priscilla and Lisa Marie, and thousands of others, it works for them. Just like we can't be denied the right to being Jews or Catholics or Christians or whatever, so who are we to deny them of their beliefs?
As I have said before, I have known the both of them for some 20 odd years, and I will stand by them until I find something that I think they shouldn't do that would hurt Elvis, and even then, I'd still like them for who they are.

I really don't care what she said or how many lies she told, i like elvis and his life and she played a big part if it, period, I don't see why we have we have threads about priscilla when everybody heated and say things that are disrespectful, we elvis fans should cherish the king, and not sit there and talk about HIS family. When elvis was alive he wouldn't people to treat his family with some respect, but l guess his wishes aren't granted.

Well said presley i know people can have there views but have some respect.

My view on this subject whether anyone cares or not is that we should be able to discuss anything or anyone that is part of Elvis without thrashing each other. Everyone who's been on the Priscilla threads have no doubt as to how I for one feel about her. However I feel that with Prissy we are flogging a dead horse and I have to agree with Jak on this one - it's time for a big virtual hug all around.

Ok, the bell just rang for round 2......"don't condemn or scold anyone else who disagrees with you.", gee, I kind of thought that's what YOU were doing to me and my opinions....but, moving on.....Priscilla has never once "used" Elvis as you put it to advance her own career or make her life better. She went out and became an actress, ON HER OWN, (and a darn good one she is if I might say so), and did so without the advancement of "using" Elvis. The recognition Lisa Marie recieves now is not so much of her father, but because she happens to be a very talented woman....you'd notice that was obvious if you listened to her music. She is a very gifted writer, just read the lyrics to "Nobody Noticed It", and you'll see what I mean. And she hasn't exactly "depended" on the name Presley, after all, she is Elvis' daughter. It's not like she had a different name when born, and then later changed it to gain recognition....jeez.
As for this comment, "Actually, it's not for you to say . . . many posters on this forum say what they think, and many on this thread have "trashed" her, but you attack me? I'm entitled to MY opinions, just as you are.", I never said you weren't entitled to your opinions. I just didn't like how you trashed Prscilla or Lisa Marie. I've been upset at others for the same. I never singled you out personally.
As far as this goes, "If you care about Elvis - you'd care about what HE would think about what these two have done to his name, his image, and with HIS $$$$.", I do care about Elvis, more than you will ever know, and so far, I have never seen any misuse of Presley funds by either of them. If I did, I'd speak up about it. I've been perfectly pleased with how both Priscilla and Lisa Marie have handled things through the years.
And for this comment, "Yeah, not everyone gets it right the first time . . . but four husbands before age 40 . . . please . . . she has no respect for marriage . . . actually, she hasn't proven to have respect for much of anything in life, has she?", all I have to say is I'm 37, been married and divorced twice, my mom's been married three, and we have plenty of respect for marriage. Just because Lisa Marie's had four husbands doesn't mean she has any respect for marriage. You want to try again?
You know, I almost had to laugh at your next comment, "She married the freak, hung around with freaks, so that makes HER a freak. ", because if that were the case, then, it could also be stated if I married a leper, hung around lepers, that'd make me a leper. Come on, get real!
"They're clearly screwed up . . . Pris is vain, insecure, caught in her Elvis-controlled past, so obsessed with plastic surgery her beauty is now distorted . . . she failed as a mother, not once, but twice . . . and it's not worth the time to write here about how dysfunctional LM is . . .", oh I really loved this one.....:lmfao: , I mean, who in life, isn't screwed up one way or another? Who doesn't have flaws? Who ever said they were perfect? And I don't think Priscilla failed as a mother.....she raised a wonderful young woman in an enviroment that was tough to do. (Lisa being with her sometimes, and with Elvis others.) I don't know anybody who isn't a little bit dysfunctional because of the way they grew up. For instance, I take after my mother, my older brother, he takes after our father. If Lisa Marie seems a little more dysfunctional than any other person, think for a moment of the circumstancers of her chilhood....parents divorced at an early age, going back and forth from being pampered by Elvis to trying to have a normal life with Priscilla, and on top of all that, she loses her father at an early age. You and I never had to experience a life like that.....so who are either of us to call Lisa Marie dysfunctional in the first place?
Lastly, as far as Scientology goes, Elvis may or may not have liked or understood it, but for Priscilla and Lisa Marie, and thousands of others, it works for them. Just like we can't be denied the right to being Jews or Catholics or Christians or whatever, so who are we to deny them of their beliefs?
As I have said before, I have known the both of them for some 20 odd years, and I will stand by them until I find something that I think they shouldn't do that would hurt Elvis, and even then, I'd still like them for who they are.


:lame:

:laughing:

No matter what anyone's opinion may be, the fact that they used - and continue to use - Elvis, is undeniable. Just two more in a very long line of people who took advantage of a guy who, for some reason, never exercised his right to kick them all to the curb. Losers, users, freaks - it's a shame E really had no one to trust, no one who REALLY cared. Least of all, his gold-digging ex and that trashy, crude LM and the "F" that proves what she REALLY thinks of her father.

Now, if you're such a huge fan of these two "sweet, wonderful women" start your own fan club, but don't try so hard here to convince me or anyone else that they deserve anything. :doh:

And . . . move on.

Awhile back, LM added the "F" for ****ing in front of "Presley" because that's what she thinks of the name . . . HER FATHER's name . . . the name that has given her EVERYTHING she's ever had or will ever have.

I think if Elvis were alive today it would have broken his heart to read Priscilla's tell-all book. The movie based on the book would have added insult to injury. Unfortunately he's not here to defend himself.

Lisa Marie was a teenager when the book was published. I can only imagine how hurt she must have been to read such terrible things about her dad written by her mother.

The book is called 'Elvis & Me', written by Priscilla. The movie is titled the same.

They said in an interview about a year or so ago that they just started having a nice relationship in recent years. Lisa Marie wrote a song about her mom called 'Raven'. Anyway, they seem to have put their differences (whatever they were) behind them. Just in case you're interested, the lyrics to the song are at http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/lisamariepresley/raven.html

let's see. . .either you hate her or love her. Can't do anything much to change opinion of those who don't care for her, right? As stated, she didn't call herself Elvis' widow. Even legally she isn't - you have to be married to someone at least 10 yrs, I think to even make a claim on their SS. She did put up with him & his affairs & his lack of intimate attention for as long as she could. But, the fact is Elvis chose her, married her, & kept her close by all those years. Even IF she had a different agenda, she did keep Graceland running & Elvis in the spotlight. Elvis talent & charisma has kept us all enraptured all these years - even as he's not with us now. I think once your in Elvis' circle, you consider yourself part of him forever - that's the hold he has on us.

And . . . move on.First of all, they aren't "using" Elvis as you keep putting it. In fact, through the years if it hadn't been for people like Priscilla or Lisa Marie, Elvis, Graceland, and everything else could have long ago been forgotten. They have protected Elvis' memory, kept it alive, just as the fans do, and I don't see that as "using" him.....I see that as helping him. As far as Elvis goes with you saying that he "never exercised his right to kick them all to the curb. Losers, users, freaks - it's a shame E really had no one to trust.....", I disagree. Elvis had Sonny and Red West fired because they were losers, (and if I remember correctly Dave Hebler was fired as well), and to say he had no one to trust is the biggest joke I've ever heard. He could trust in Charlie Hodge, Joe Esposito, Linda Thompson, J. D. Sumner, just to name a few.
As far as Lisa Marie and her use of the "F" word, I never thought it was directed toward her father. She loved him dearly and still does to this day. Besides, unless you can read her mind, how do you know what she "REALLY thinks of her father" anyway?
And as far as this goes....."Now, if you're such a huge fan of these two "sweet, wonderful women" start your own fan club, but don't try so hard here to convince me or anyone else that they deserve anything.", I do think they are sweet and wonderful, and I've been lucky to know them. And I'm not trying to convince you of anything anyway....besides I have freedom of speech and can shout from the mountaintops about how much I like Priscilla and Lisa Marie if I so pleased. Not that you'd care if I did. And I believe they do deserve somethings like recognition for their place in Elvis history, but even more so for the hard work they do in preserving that history.

So if anyone should move on, it's you.

Kind of feels like this thread is going in the wrong direction folks!!

I'm going to have to ask you to play nicely. Unfortunately i'm going to close this thread until things have cooled down.

Should you wish to discuss the matter further please contact me via PM.
