I love Elvis ♥
Simply put "No" Dovey
Get Him, get him~~Hot D*** ~~ he's a Squirrel!
Can I just "straddle" the issue??
I don't think they were "right" for each other. IMO, neither of them should have gotten married. Both seemed too immature for such a serious step.
My "not caring" for Priscilla has nothing to do with Elvis.
But, neither do I hate her.
Nope..the best girl for Elvis was Linda ....
Taking Care of BusinessTil we meet you again, may God bless you, Adios.
It's just that I see both sides in that marriage.
Some people like Priscilla , so I didn't see a great need to bash her.
I didn't vote as I needed another option.
I like Priscilla a lot
I think that Elvis wasn't supposed to be married to anyone. That was his life-style like.
He wasn't the best husband either
But they looked cute together
But, that's just my opinion
I got nothing against Priscilla. Elvis loved and married her, but like arj pointed out maybe they weren't "right" for each other. She tried tho.
Sure my opinions have changed a little. Before I thought she was the right one for him, but now after learning more I wouldn't say so. I think the whole thing was based on a crush they had on each other back in the army days.
But what am I to say anything!
"You can knock me down, step in my face,
slander my name all over the place"
- But don't YOU step on my blue suede shoes -
*You walk past me- I can feel your pain-Time changes everything -One truth always stays the same - You're still you - After all - You're still you *
I think she was alright untill they separated, she didn?t like her life with him and did what she had to do, leave, fall in love with another man or watever she wanted. But I don?t like her since she started to use him as a food ticket, that is what she has been doing for more than 30 years (that and changing or adorning stories to write her own fairytale). A good example of how to live off the name of a famous person because you know you don?t have a talent of your own. She would?t have got envolved in Elvis?s estate if she thought she could make the money to keep on with her way of life by herself.
Said that I have to say I can?t blame her for anything during her life with him and I think she deserved Elvis then, in my opinion it?s him who didn?t deserve her during their marriage but she learnt very fast and made a business out of it so I don?t feel any pity for her at all.
Altough great looking together they were just to different to make marriage work.
Too bad tough I just love to see their pictures together, what a couple they were
A gold-digger .. from the very second she met Elvis!
Here we go again stand well back when this topic really gets going.........................
I neither like or dislike Priscilla, I find some of the things she has done very unpalatable but on the flip side "From the idea that those people hanging around the gates of Graceland might pay for the privilege of peeking inside, an empire was born. Priscilla Presley and her advisor's have always known the value of Elvis as a brand name, and have always maximised that value with limited financial risk."
So from the above perspective you could argue she has contributed in a small way to keeping Graceland in the hands of the the future generations of LMP.
It would have been a whole different ball game had Priscilla sold Graceland, it is hard to imagine anywhere else being the epicentre of the Elvis empire!
My gripe with Priscilla is she uses Elvis purely as a business venture and there is little or no sentiment involved, she also piggy backs off the name Presley for her own benefit, it just seems cold....... some might see this as good business sense, others opportunism from an ex-wife.
Priscilla and her advisers have done what the colonel never did, close all the loopholes and tighten the grip on the brand name "Presley" and utilised many different income streams, it probably wasn't necessary when Elvis was alive because Elvis would tour and sell merchandise to make money.
Imagine if Elvis had been given this advice whilst he was alive!! Elvis could have rested more and perhaps a different outcome to his life could have been possible?
I'm sure that Priscilla loved Elvis, I believe it has been very difficult for her to live under his shadow even today! I can't Imagine how difficult it must be when you are virtually invisible because they are not interested in you for who you are but for who you were married to? That said the Chairman of Rolls Royce is not going to be asked questions about there latest laundry collection
With Priscilla you are always going to get the good the bad and the ugly we can speculate as to her worthiness as a wife, we can question her ability as a actress, however we have to admit the job she has done as a business woman is pretty good.
I think that Prisilla would be nothing without Presley name.
It is just not fair from her that everywhere talks how much she suffered and what a terrible marriage she has.
In looooong line of Elvis's girlfriends .....only she gave him the most precious gift .....a child.
Even though he really wasn't a good husband, he took care very good for both
"Don't criticize what you don't understand, son, you never walked in that man's shoes."
and in the long run....she did save Graceland for the fans. Maybe she didn't think about them then, but IF she'd sold it , there would be nothing .
"Vernon Presley's will brought about the appointment of three co-executors/co-trustees to succeed him. They were: the National Bank of Commerce in Memphis, which was the bank Elvis and Vernon had done business with; Joseph Hanks, who had been Elvis and Vernon's accountant for a number of years; and Priscilla Beaulieu Presley, who had divorced Elvis in 1973, but had continued a close friendship with him and was Lisa's legal guardian. Joseph Hanks retired from his post in 1990.Upon Lisa Presley's twenty-fifth birthday in 1993, the trust automatically dissolved and Lisa chose to form a new trust, The Elvis Presley Trust, to continue the successful management of the estate, with Priscilla Presley and the National Bank of Commerce continuing to serve as co-trustees. In 1998, as Lisa Marie Presley's role in the management grew, Priscilla Presley chose to redirect her efforts by moving to an advisory position, continuing her close involvement and support while focusing more time on her own ever-expanding individual pursuits as a successful actress and businessperson."
As I´ve said before I don´t blame her for leaving Elvis neither for his decline like some fans do, but I can´t help seeing her as an oportunist since Vernon died and I don´t think we have to thank her for anything and assume Graceland woulnd´t be there to visit simply because that´s very unlikely.
Of course we all have our own opinion but for me the only person to be grateful for what we have today is Elvis himself and the talent and love for his fans he showed while he was alive, that´s what keeps him on the top.
