Priscilla?

Woof!

No thank you.

Never found her attractive until just after she left Elvis. That whole "porcelain doll" look was too creepy for my tastes.

That bouffant ... the makeup ... the mascara ...

YECCHH!!

Oh, and she was as dumb as a box of hammers as well.

I would have to know her real well and like her to marry her.

I don't think even if any of us knew Priscilla and been in a relationship with her that she would marry any of us.

She seems like the type to just live with guys and not marry them.

No, but Linda would have been a very nice option

I would not marry either one of them.
Both priscilla and Linda en Ginger to were out for the monye. Not really trustworthy or loving or carring warm woman.
The only descend were Dixie and Anita i think.
Lucky i already have a very pretty girlfriend who actully looks like Linda.
Lucky me.

While I respect your opinion romar, I have to seriously disagree with it!!! I truly think that Linda cared deeply for Elvis, especially to have stayed with him as long as she did during some of the hardest times of Elvis' life (late '73, '74).

If there was one woman who I could say with 99.9% certainty wasn't after Elvis' money and cared deeply for him, it would be Linda!!! :hmm:

I don't know if bad is the right word....perhaps needy is a better word? To me, she just always seemed like she had to be in control of every situation and if she had completely had her way, Elvis' career might have been put on the backburner.

I understand that she wanted to be with her husband (naturally), but she knew what she was signing up for when she agreed to be his wife...she had been with him long enough to know how things were going to be. If she couldn't handle the situation, she should have just declined his proposal and told him why. Instead, I have always had the feeling that she married him to try and change him....and I don't think that was right.

Does that make any sense... :hmm:

Whether he knew, or wanted it, he needed a strong woman. Someone who loved him, definitely. Who he trusted, and would accept words of wisdom from. A young, immature woman was not what he needed at such a difficult time in his life

I often wonder what happened to priscilla when she was alittle girl to make her turn out the way she did and the needy part isn't something that comes natural so maybe she is one of those people who think if she hangs on tight enough she won't lose that person and l turly felt she was like that with elvis but its hard to say what really happened between the pair of them cause elvis would not be with someone for that long if they were full of themselves and just a pain in the butt so to speak and nobody can fake that without letting the real side come out once and awhile. Lets remember there are two sides of every story and we never heard elvis sides but everyone else but i wonder what he would say about her and the way she was when they were together???? anyways some people just aren't met for eachtogether and this was one of them.

Giving Cilla the benefit of the doubt, she had a difficult childhood, finding out by accident who she thought was her Dad, actually wasn't.
She moved around a lot, had trouble settling and making friends.
Also, maybe she thought Elvis was a different person at the time she met him, compared to after the army.
I truly can't decide, she does seem cold, maybe she is shy???

Why does everybody say that about Ginger?

They say she was all wrong for Elvis because she was too young or not right for him.

Elvis began dating her when she was 20 that's about the same age as all his other girlfriends were.
She was older than Priscilla was when Elvis began dating her.

So when people say she was too young for him I don't understand that.


I don't know Ginger personally but in every interview i've seen her in she comes across as intelligent and nice.

I don't get the Ginger criticism from all the fans.

So when people say she was too young for him I don't understand that.

It's pretty simple really.

Elvis was 23 when he met Priscilla, 14. They weren't dating until a while later.

When they married, Elvis was 32, she was 21. Quite a difference, but not impossible to make work.

But Ginger? She was 20 when she met Elvis ... who was 41 at the time!

Far to much of a difference to make it work, especially considering who he was.

I've never believed Ginger was a gold-digger, otherwise we'd have heard a lot more from her after Elvis died. But it was just one interview, then she returned to obscurity and raised a family. Good for her.

I'm sure she "loved" Elvis as much as a 20-year-old girl is capable of loving anyone.

But at 20/21 and 41/42 ... she was waaaaaay too young for him!

Usually, I would also agree that age doesn't mean anything....it's the feelings between the two people.

But I think in Elvis' case, it was a unique situation and Ginger being as young as she was wasn't ready to take care of Elvis, which basically was where he was at by 1977...needing someone to take care of him. :hmm:

Certainly not a normal situation by any means... :doh:

Well, if I were a man, no I would not have went through the waiting about until Miss Priscilla was ready for marriage. Had I been Elvis I would not have married anyone. Especially Ginger, which some may not appreciate me saying, was just a little girl even though at 5'9 I'm sure she looked very appealing to men.

The woman who best fit Elvis in all ways was Ann M. But the one thing that would have went sour would be the lifestuyle of the times, and the MM. She would have had to see him more, and no MM in the house. lol Can't say as I blame her there.

You are oh so right about that. Ginger was more of a friendly love interest..a companion, nothing but nothing went on...in the way that some people think it did. I also feel had she been more mature, she would have noted he was in the bathroom WAY TOO LONG! Help might have been able to save him.

God, in all reality he could have been her father, and he met Ginger at 5. Yep, some say 3. They met again later on, Even though she was a child, he was a man, once she was grown into a woman, and the fact he was not really doing anything but being in her company, it's not a big deal... ya know the reason he sang so hard..really heart felt deep throated versian of HURT at the concert when he introduced Ginger, he was talking to 'Cillia.

I'm sorry, but no one was out to "Get" anything from Elvis...Ginger was overwhelmed by him and his place in the world, almost hypnotized like a lot of young women are.
There is room for sadness here, but Ginger didn't mean to ever take Elvis or hurt him. She was if anything just too dammed young and stupid to be the alarm that was screaming loudly that awful morning of Aug16,1977..she had her brain in a pillow...as I think one of us, even at her age, would notice if an elderly pet was having some difficulty. Alerted and got help before it was all said and done, and nothing left to do.

Genie

What she looked like, pure and simple.

Too much makeup, too much hair.

Well Elvis fans, if you think about it, Elvis especially liked her that way..for whatever reason. She was beautiful without all that stuff...
I lean toward the thought that Elvis in the early early years, was not especially a gorgeous knock you out dead good looking guy! He was well dressed and groomed, but had pale features unbecoming the King.
The best thing he had, was his talent, his voice, his beautiful spirit and eyes, the rest was more or less what you dislike in 'Cilla.. Dyed black hair, and eyebrows.. eye makeup...crowns here and there.. strip almost anyone of their stage makeup, or in Elvis' case his aquired appearance, and you have someone shopping at the grocerie store, who seems slightly familiar.

I agree with you on this, Getlo. Added to the difference in their ages, IMO,
was Elvis' life experiences. At 20/21, I don't think Ginger had a vast
amount of life experience. I do respect that Ginger kept a low profile after
Elvis' death. I do admire that. I also feel that her family tried to get what
they could from Elvis while he was alive and after he died. Although Elvis
was 21 when he met Priscilla, he still had the innocence of youth to an
extent. He was a young man, grieving the loss of his mother, far way from
his home and not too mature at that time. That all, imo, made the difference

I don't know if bad is the right word....perhaps needy is a better word? To me, she just always seemed like she had to be in control of every situation and if she had completely had her way, Elvis' career might have been put on the backburner.

I understand that she wanted to be with her husband (naturally), but she knew what she was signing up for when she agreed to be his wife...she had been with him long enough to know how things were going to be. If she couldn't handle the situation, she should have just declined his proposal and told him why. Instead, I have always had the feeling that she married him to try and change him....and I don't think that was right.

Does that make any sense... :hmm:

TCB!

In my opinion, it makes a lot of sense. I can't really fault her in thinking that
maybe she could change him; but, when that failed, I'd have to say, she
ran for the border! Maybe, she could have changed herself and become the
kind of wife that Elvis wanted, or maybe not.:D:D:D:D

I also feel had she been more mature, she would have noted he was in the bathroom WAY TOO LONG! Help might have been able to save him.

The fact that Ginger didn't go to the bathroom earlier has nothing to do with her maturity, or lack of same.

She was asleep. End of story.

She was always - and always should be - blameless in Elvis' death.

ya know the reason he sang so hard..really heart felt deep throated versian of HURT at the concert when he introduced Ginger, he was talking to 'Cillia.

Cilla was the last thing on his mind then. If you think he was in love/still in love with her, or would have taken her back, think again.

It's pretty simple really.

Elvis was 23 when he met Priscilla, 14. They weren't dating until a while later.

When they married, Elvis was 32, she was 21. Quite a difference, but not impossible to make work.

But Ginger? She was 20 when she met Elvis ... who was 41 at the time!

Far to much of a difference to make it work, especially considering who he was.

I've never believed Ginger was a gold-digger, otherwise we'd have heard a lot more from her after Elvis died. But it was just one interview, then she returned to obscurity and raised a family. Good for her.

I'm sure she "loved" Elvis as much as a 20-year-old girl is capable of loving anyone.

But at 20/21 and 41/42 ... she was waaaaaay too young for him!

Oh COMPLETELY agree!(y)

You know, I think Priscilla was a spoiled brat before Elvis ever got hold of
her. Consider how her parents felt that if they did not allow her to go to live
with Elvis she would have run off and gone anyway. Consider that she
told her parents, according to them, that they were ruining her life by not
letting her go with Elvis. At her age then, could she possibly have known that
her life would have been ruined? Consider Priscilla was allowed to go out
around an army base at her tender age unchaporoned (sp?) and was allowed
to got to Elvis' home there at such a young age. No, I think Elvis is not
totally responsibel for Priscilla being a spoiled little brat!:D:D:D:D

Well Elvis fans, if you think about it, Elvis especially liked her that way..for whatever reason. She was beautiful without all that stuff...
I lean toward the thought that Elvis in the early early years, was not especially a gorgeous knock you out dead good looking guy! He was well dressed and groomed, but had pale features unbecoming the King.
The best thing he had, was his talent, his voice, his beautiful spirit and eyes, the rest was more or less what you dislike in 'Cilla.. Dyed black hair, and eyebrows.. eye makeup...crowns here and there.. strip almost anyone of their stage makeup, or in Elvis' case his aquired appearance, and you have someone shopping at the grocerie store, who seems slightly familiar.

WOW!!!!! .....I'm surprised the women havn't driven you off the board for picking Elvis' looks to pieces like that:lmfao::lmfao::lmfao:

09-12-2009, 06:23 PM
Usually, I would also agree that age doesn't mean anything....it's the feelings between the two people.

But I think in Elvis' case, it was a unique situation and Ginger being as young as she was wasn't ready to take care of Elvis, which basically was where he was at by 1977...needing someone to take care of him. :hmm:

Certainly not a normal situation by any means... :doh:

TCB!

Totally agree there Mike. I think Elvis had gone way beyond a 'normal' relationship with anyone. He was not s8xually active, which you would assume a 20 year old woman would want. Watching him eat, making sure he didn't drop off to sleep.........not good times

and also because I think her family, if not her also, was in it for what they
could get from Elvis.:!::!::!:

I AGREE she should not be blamed for his death.
However, I meant by saying mature..when a mature older woman is either in the home, the bed, or near by, she takes notice....(how do you know she was asleep? I mean honestly..that is what you think or read, it may not have been so) A young person toys with simple detail, a mature person thinks, uses their head wisely, and says HEY? Where is he and why is he in there this long...thats all.. not blaming her for being 20 something.

No thank you.

Never found her attractive until just after she left Elvis. That whole "porcelain doll" look was too creepy for my tastes.

That bouffant ... the makeup ... the mascara ...

YECCHH!!

Oh, and she was as dumb as a box of hammers as well.

Gee I wonder what Elvis would have thought of that comment?
Many a young girl and young woman wore their hair the same, the heavy makeup, and mascara..few didn't. Whatever her problem is between her and Elvis, but she was beautiful and she was not stupid.

I have read lots of books and he wasn't always letting her do her own thing and the other girls may have or not said anything ( i have to do my own reseach there ) Yes l believe priscilla made it out to be more but l don't doubt that he was controlling her in his own way and maybe he felt he had to do that like the MM all said" elvis wanted to model priscilla " in what he wanted well he got his wish but in the end it backfired. I don't any of us know how it really was so l don't think l would say priscilla is a lying in everything but yes alot is untrue tho.

Priscilla was a very attractive woman, she may have overdone it with the makeup etc in her youth, however there can't be many of us who have reached a certain age (I'm 40) who don't look back and cringe at some of the things we wore in our youth.

Priscilla has grown cold over the years because she has been vilified by the fans for many years, whatever she does cannot appease the fans and so the bitterness has all but consumed her.

Back to the question at hand lol, if Priscilla hadn't married Elvis and she lived a normal life, yes. However she was married to Elvis, after him I'm sure there would only be one area where I could keep her happy :blush: :lmfao:

However, Elvis shouldn't have kept her 'locked up' (obviously I'm exaggerating) but you get my drift, he was away doing whatever he wanted, but she had behave as 'he' expected her to. That's not normal to expect someone to live that way.

While I respect your opinion romar, I have to seriously disagree with it!!! I truly think that Linda cared deeply for Elvis, especially to have stayed with him as long as she did during some of the hardest times of Elvis' life (late '73, '74).

If there was one woman who I could say with 99.9% certainty wasn't after Elvis' money and cared deeply for him, it would be Linda!!! :hmm:

TCB!
Mike

Well let me put it this way.
Linda got a lot of gifts, house, car, jewels. So did her parents and brother.
Linda had an affair with David Briggs. She apparently left Elvis for David. Elvis did not give attentiont to Linda. Elvis had affairs with Cher, Sheila Ryan and Diane Goodman. Oh, what a lot of love an affection there....i do not care what she said on Larry King. The fact's do not lie.
When they split up Linda and a friend went shopping with Elvis his credit card. For 100.000 dollars.(Or more).
When Elvis died she was one of the first to have a all tell book ready on the market plus tv right's sold. And that is love? She is not after his money??
Why, if she loved him so much, did she leave him when things got worse?
Selfisch reasons perhaps?

May
09-15-2009, 04:16 PM
Everyone got a lot of gifts from Elvis.
Linda had an affair? So did Elvis!
She probably left him for the same reasons Priscilla did. couldnt handle the lifestyle or the way drugs made the man she loved. Wasnt she in the bathroom when Elvis shot a gun randomly (although not AT her) narrowly missing her by a few inches??? That, along with other things we have no idea about, would tend to grind you down a little!!

the fact that Lisa kept in touch with her says a lot to me.

They both affairs. That is what i mean. How much love is there then? If there was love then you would not start an affair or would you?
Both Linda and Priscilla left Elvis. As you know that was devastating to him and he felt more and more betrayed and started taking more and more pills wich weren''t good for him.
You all do realize that don't you...???
It is my opinion that there was some love on some kind of level in the beginning but when Elvis started to open his eys and saw what she really was after i think it grew less and less.
I mean now there is a book and a dvd from a friend of Linda...?? And nobody is making no money of him and everbody loved him so much. Shows a lot of love and respect to me.

I believe that Linda had a very difficult time, her life wasn't a bunch of roses that's for sure. Linda has never written a book although if she did, it would in my opinion almost certainly be positive.

In all the interviews I have seen of Linda she has always spoken highly of Elvis. Linda might have enjoyed the trappings of the lavish lifestyle Elvis lived, but she also lived with Elvis during a period that wasn't easy to handle. I have heard his ex wife speak of Elvis far worse than Linda :angry:

Linda might have enjoyed the trappings of the lavish lifestyle Elvis lived, but she also lived with Elvis during a period that wasn't easy to handle. I have heard his ex wife speak of Elvis far worse than Linda :angry:

I think Linda did for Elvis all that humanly possible. So what if she got some perks along the way....she certainly earned them.

Everyone got a lot of gifts from Elvis.
Linda had an affair? So did Elvis!
She probably left him for the same reasons Priscilla did. couldnt handle the lifestyle or the way drugs made the man she loved. Wasnt she in the bathroom when Elvis shot a gun randomly (although not AT her) narrowly missing her by a few inches??? That, along with other things we have no idea about, would tend to grind you down a little!!

the fact that Lisa kept in touch with her says a lot to me.

I dont remember a book by Linda. whats the title?

Well if that is what you want to believe.....she sure has written a book. It is filmed. Check it. Google. IMDB.
I can't believe you don't know that.
I have excerpts of that book. 6 or 7 pages. Released in a magazine in 1979 or 1980. I stiil have it in one of the scapbooks.
And again it is filmed for tv early 80's. Don Johnson as Elvis. And Stephanie Zimberlast as Linda. Elvis and the Beauty Queen.Check the site IMDB.

Yes they can be blamed. Cause they had they were the most involved with him. It is the influence they have. conscious or sub conscious.
We are all human and open to all kinds of thing from the outside. And i agree nobody is perfect and Elvis should have taken better care of himself. He was a smart grown man. But still...when you love someone and they leave or betray you...when you feel lonely and isolated pills are a way to forget you problems.
That is what i think happend. And it is very very sad.

We are almost certainly going to have to disagree with the above, Elvis played his part in ALL his relationships for better or worse. Just because you buy someone a mink coat does not mean you can sleep with another woman on the side!

I'm not saying that the women in Elvis' life were not without fault but they are not the primary reason Elvis' life declined. He took drugs in the army, he took sleeping pills because he couldn't sleep and very probably he took some drugs because he enjoyed the effects. By the time Linda entered Elvis' life his drug habits were well established.

Even if Linda has written a book, which incidentally I'm still not 10% convinced. I doubt you could find anything bad in there otherwise you wouldn't have kept it?

Giving someone a mink coat or any kind of present is no reason to sleep with someone else. I totally agree.
And yes you are right in saying that Elvis played his part in his relationships. But i also at the same time think that she was out on the money and the lifestyle.
I am saying that she had a few rich an famous boyfriend's. Wonder why it was never a guy who works for, let's say, the railroad company. That's how she pay's all the face and body lifts....
What did she accomplisch except writting a few song's. Looks to me she gets back on the Elvis story every time.
Just like Cybill Shepard. Her career is pretty much over and now she comes out with stories about her relationship and engagement. She supposdley gave back a handfull of pills plus a engagement ring.
Just like Priscilla who did more than allright with her last name....what is her last name anyway? Wagner, Beaulieu or Presley??? What did she do? Dallas, Naked Gun and ...let's see....oh yea running Graceland.
I mean come on.
The copies are in dutch since i am from The Netherlands. I have to look up the scrapbook an figure out how to scan and place them on your side. Besides i am taking a two week trip.
I shall see what i can do.

Linda was there over 4 years, sharing the highs and lows. She has a right to do and say things about their relatioship.............I mean, this woman stayed awake to keep him from choking on his food many times. She didn't have to do that, she could have left much earlier.

His pill intake did seem to esculate, (maybe coincidentally) with Cilla's departure.
However, surely the relentless grind of touring/night for day work had more to do with his increase. Coupled with the knowledge he was getting older and the press was hounding him about his weight

No i am not blaming anybody but i do think the freeloaders caused to much stress and suck the life out of Elvis and in that way contibuted to an pemature death.
Wy did he do pills in the first place? looking for oblivion??

What caused his death then? An overdose? When Lisa was there??
Heart problems? What caused the heart attack? Stress maybe?

To me Elvis was a human beining and humans do die of natural causes. However those causes do not come by themselves do they?

Jungleroom76
09-18-2009, 11:50 PM
Well let me put it this way.
Linda got a lot of gifts, house, car, jewels. So did her parents and brother.
Linda had an affair with David Briggs. She apparently left Elvis for David. Elvis did not give attentiont to Linda. Elvis had affairs with Cher, Sheila Ryan and Diane Goodman. Oh, what a lot of love an affection there....i do not care what she said on Larry King. The fact's do not lie.
When they split up Linda and a friend went shopping with Elvis his credit card. For 100.000 dollars.(Or more).
When Elvis died she was one of the first to have a all tell book ready on the market plus tv right's sold. And that is love? She is not after his money??
Why, if she loved him so much, did she leave him when things got worse?
Selfisch reasons perhaps?

Perhaps she did make some questionable choices after leaving Elvis....I certainly won't argue that!

But I think the whole affair thing with David was simply because she needed someone to talk to that would understand what she was going through with Elvis and it just developed into something more than a friendship. Linda certainly had needs as well, and Elvis simply wasn't giving her what she needed emotionally. :hmm:

But I give her a LOT of credit for staying with him and loving him during one of the roughest periods of his life. If she didn't love him, I'm sure she would have left long before she did.

TCB!

Priscilla and Elvis, you could see that they had a ball together. Cilla laughed just as hard as he did, and they loved each other's company.

It isn't who a person is, but how he or she, makes you feel, and what they do for you, as a spouse or friend, how caring they are.

I respectfully disagree, with saying someone is "who" if they care about their spouse/friends and are good to them. It's inside that counts, someone who holds your hand when you need them, or is there all the time, is more important than anything.

The problem with Elvis from what I have read is that he liked to be around the guys, so if he is filming movies and his wife isn't there, that is a lot of time alone. Then when you are home the guys are there, it doesn't seem like a lot of quality time for his wife?

Elvis is known for having an eye for the ladies, if you are home and you are hearing that information, it would soon start to make you feel lonely. When Priscilla met up with Elvis she could have foreseen how much time she would spend alone. It wouldn't matter how much Elvis told her he loved her, in the end action speaks louder than words :hmm:

I'm not saying for one minute that Elvis didn't love Priscilla, I just believe he had very different ideas about marriage to the conventional route. Just because you are rich and famous does not absolve you from being attentive.

I don't understand what you say? when they got married he was at the end of the movie career. he stayed recording in Tn mostly. Then he did the special and was not gone from home much. so mostly things got better not worse. didn't things at that time?
I see if different. I think they did finally have more time as a couple and that it when they got on each others nerves and found less tolerance. sort of like when a man retires and suddenly all the couple dislikes about each other becomes a problem.
When Elvis was away, she was free to do things and she did. dancing, karate, shopping.
it is said, be careful what you wish for
not sure I could be with him that much and have him in my business so much and my business now being more and more all about him and to have a baby too. he was like a baby sometimes they say. so it's trading one problem for another and no way was a good way and she found that out. my opinion. very sad.

yes, on tour was bad but it's my opinion that the trouble set in before that. something had to happen. we think it all looked so nice but I think not. already when in Vegas he told a person that he was skinny, because of a bad marriage. this time when they should have been happy, I think looks so good but something was wrong.

Elvis and Priscilla lived together from 1961-2 until 1971-72? those years together they could be considered common law man and wife. Should Elvis have treated her any different just because they weren't married?

Elvis made movies from 1960-1969, he made approx 3 movies per year. He started live performing in 1969. I bet she took up most hobbies because he wasn't around.

I'm sure 'occasionally' within celebrity marriages there will be partners who remain faithful........not often I'd gamble!!!
Elvis was perceived as such a stud, there was no way he would remain faithful, the attention women threw at him.

Cilla has said problems started when Lisa was born, because she couldn't just be 'Elvis' wife anymore. She was a Mum, which had to take priority.

Things change in any marrage after a baby is born. I have heard rumour that Elvis found it difficult to have relations after than because of the madonna issue, but that is all it is.. Rumours.

IMHO Elvis was already bored of Priscilla before they wed and that is probably why the drifted apart. Nevertheless he married Priscilla and should have remained faithful and attentive or stood his ground and not married.

Obviously we disagree on this, Elvis should have been attentive before and during the marriage. I didn't treat my wife better just because I married her :blink:



Things change in any marrage after a baby is born. I have heard rumour that Elvis found it difficult to have relations after than because of the madonna issue, but that is all it is.. Rumours.

IMHO Elvis was already bored of Priscilla before they wed and that is probably why the drifted apart. Nevertheless he married Priscilla and should have remained faithful and attentive or stood his ground and not married.

They say a photo speaks volumes, from this photo you can see they had a deep abiding love for each other.

I love that picture too and I think they had moments of closeness but not enough to keep them together.

Married Priscilla? No. But i must admit she looked beautiful around the wedding i 1967. I actually like her hair back then.

There are not many photo's of Elvis and Linda were elvis laughs or even smile's a little on them. Mostly not. That has to mean or say something. i think

when was that taken? they were separated and he was dating Bova around then right? I'm sure they had a special place in their hearts for each other, and that pictures seems to show it, but I don't think they were together then.

I'm not very good with dating things, but I'd hazard a guess and say they were still together in this pic
Maybe 70ish
