All-around, I think Linda was best for E. By all accounts, even when he was flippin' his lid a bit, she could handle it.
I don't think it was easy on any of those women: imagine having to put up with EP?

Elvis's unheard of girlfriends
The bottom two photo's is Kathy Self and Yvonnelime. How come these were not mention in books. I don't know the other two but if someone knows please reply. I don't read all books about Elvis life.

Every man has a flaming star
The girl on the motorbike in the seventies pics here wasn't a girlfriend as such.
I can't remember her name now - and I can't find the article I'm thinking of - but she was a local Memphis girl with whom Elvis had two or three dates.
A couple of weeks after these photos, she was killed in a car accident. Elvis sent flowers to the funeral and called her mother to offer his sympathies. He offered to pay for the funeral, but the mother declined.
She was unknown until a few years ago when the mother told her story. Like I said, I can't remember where I've stored the article.
There are about eight photos in this series that I've seen.
I think Elvis loved Priscilla the most of all women. She?s the one he choose to marry, and the woman he was together with for the longest time. If she was the best for him, or most compatible, that?s another question.
I think Linda was the one who could comfort him the best, who made him laugh. But he never married her, and he had other girlfriends at the same time. Sometimes she seems to have been more like a female buddy.
You have forgotten another important girlfriend: Anita Wood. Elvis loved her, and they were a couple for many years (1957-1962). I think he considered marrying her, but he felt he was too youngyet at the time. And then Priscilla came.
June Juanico was a nice girl, but how important was she really to Elvis? They met several times, and spent a few weeks together in the summer of 1956, mostly in Biloxi. But he also dated Barbara Hearn at the same time, and her framed picture is seen in Elvis? home that summer...
Dixie Locke was probably his most important early girlfriend. And it does feels like she would have been a good wife to him, knowing him before he became a star for the man he was, sharing his values.
Elvis had many women in his life; flirts, short romances, big loves, dates. In my opinon these were the big loves in Elvis?life:
Linda Thompson 4 sure...she was best for elvis very intelligent beautiful..and most important she took good care of elvis... who knows mabye if linda was still with elvis on august 16 77 elvis would probably still be alive today ~~~~peace to you all peeps
I think Priscilla was the best at least he look happy and in love with her , so I will said she was the best
Lion, I like your line up. It's almost impeccable, though I'd replace 'Dixie' with Kathy Westmoreland.
I don?t think it was a matter of wich one was better for Elvis, he wasn?t able to be faithful to any of them so the question for me would be if he was ever in love with them or he just wanted a woman waiting for him when he got home.
If I had to choose one it would be June Juanico but she was clever enough to marry another man.
She was great as a friend but I don?t think he was any good for a serious relationship.
That should be "forced to marry" instead of "chose to marry" because it's been said that Parker and Priscilla's stepfather and mother forced Elvis into marrying Priscilla when he didn't want to....
Like the lyric in the song says: "I'm not the marrying kind"......he honestly should have never married.....it wasn't in his nature to be married.
That was a joke right? y is that jak. iam not jokeing i think that lucy was the best for elvis just because you dont belive lucys story well ido
Linda...because she was with Elvis 24/7 and looked after him when he was ill and she got him off the drugs. Go Linda !
Ladies, He's mine
No, she didn't at all. As wonderful as Linda was - I think she was the most intelligent woman he ever dated, and she really could have made his life better had they stayed together - Elvis remained on drugs throughout their time together. He may have attempted a few times to get healthy, but he didn't. From 1958 onwards, he was never off drugs of one sort or another.
No doubt about that.......LINDA THOMPSON was gorgeus, sexy, loving, sweet and every inch a woman.
She was everyting Beaulieu isn`t !!
ELVIS IS KING AND YOU REMEMBER THAT !
EXCUSE ME, JESS?
If you want to live in a world where everything's all tra-la-la-la-la, you go right ahead.
I am simply making the point of disagreeing (POLITELY I might add!) with Burning Love's assertion that Linda got Elvis off drugs. Why is that such a negative?
In future, Jess, keep your snarky comments to yourself.
Everybody is saying about Linda how beautiful she is,and how she was looking after Elvis and that if she was there in august 77 Elvis still had lived.
But i don't see how people are coming up to that...Elvis was getting worse and worse in that period('72-'76).He didn't get off the drugs,no he was still taking it,and when Ginger became his girlfriend,he was still taking it,and some people here on tcb world are saying that it's Ginger's fault he died that day and Linda was so good...that's not true,if she was OK for him,he was in 1976 just like he was in 1970,and he wasn't...he was still a sick man
I'd like to go to Graceland
I don't know any of these women so I can't say which one would have been the best for Elvis. But I kinda know what type of woman he did need. He needed a woman who would understand him. Someone who didn't sugar coat everything or suck up to him. A person who wouldn't try to change the person he was but help him through his problem and call him out on his B.S. all while not being afraid of his temper tantrums. Someone who truely loved him for the person he was and not for his fame. It's all about love!
