I always liked Linda. Truly a class act like you said vivaelvis!Over the years people who knew Elvis have either written a book or tried to paint Elvis in a negaitve way. Some have chose not to do that. One in particular is Linda Thompson. She's had several opportunities to cash in on Elvis' fame. But instead chose to actually EARN her living by writing Grammy award winning songs and masterpieces for artists like Celine Dion and Whitney Houston. She's also the mother of a famous tv personality, Brodie Jenner, who is the step brother of Kim Kardashian and the son of Olympic gold medalist, Bruce Kenner, one of the stars of Keeping Up With The Kardashians that airs practically every day and night on E Entertainment television.
Linda is currently on the Elvis cruise and has twittered about her experience and how much fun she has been having. She keeps Elvis a part of her everyday life which is nice to see. Her background wallpaper on her twitter page is that of her and Elvis leaving a hotel in 1975 and her son Brody has an Elvis tattoo on his wrist of the famous TCB logo with the lightning bolt. Her other son Brandon has a large portrait of Elvis in stage on the 50's (the same photo used on the Close Up box set) in his home recording studio. And Elvis has been mentioned several times on the Kardashian show. Also, on the subject, Lamar Odom of the Los Angeles Lakers, who is married to Khloe Kardashian, Kim's younger sister, is a big Elvis fan too.
Anyway, I just wanted to point out that Linda has been loyal and as a lifelong Elvis fan, I truely appreciate her for doing that. That being said, I look forward to the day she decides to write her autobiography as beauty queen growing up in Memphis to her 4 and a half year relationship with Elvis, to her marriages with Bruce Jenner and David Foster and her amazing songwriting career. Linda is a class act.
