We’ve had it up to HERE with the tributes to Elizabeth Taylor. Let’s get real about Liz. Sorry, but she simply wasn’t worthy of all that admiration. She had a pretty face but other positive qualities were rare and far between. When she was a teenager Liz started stealing other women’s husbands. (We still admire Debbie Reynolds for forgiving her.) The acquisitive actress married seven men and finagled as many diamonds out of them as she could manage. And bragged about it. She loved her pets but never bothered to house break them – they messed her carpets – and OTHER people had to clean up. She had health problems but casually checked into a hospital whenever she wanted a rest. Of course her health would have been much better if she had controlled her urges to overeat, drink, smoke, and take drugs – and she never exercised a day in her life. Self-control was not Elizabeth’s strong factor. In 1983, she admitted to being hooked on painkillers and sleeping pills for 35 years. While filming, she expected to find a “gift” in her dressing room every morning or she might not be in the mood to work. We mean jewelry, not flowers. She kept people waiting for hours with no apology. Liz expected her friend Michael Jackson to shower her with diamonds and jewelry stores are still suing his estate for money he owed for her gifts. Granted, she WAS a dear friend to Rock Hudson when he needed one, but her involvement with AIDS charities brought her a grand lifestyle and prestige – private jets and five star hotel suites around the world for her and her entourage, incredible gifts, paid for by the charity. Style icon? Only if you like turbans and caftans. When Edith Head stopped dressing her, she lost her glamour. Let’s celebrate her film career- not her private life.

    By the way, she is really rocking that headdress.

    Ms. Taylor was showered with fabulous jewelry because men WANTED to give them to her. Feeling a little slighted, Janet?

    Janet, you are finally talking! Couldn’t agree more. Liz took all she wanted and had no regards for human feelings. Taking a man from his small children and young wife just to dump him soon after? Tsk tsk tsk. Movie star? Sure! Wonderful? Will me missed? Gimme a break. She was addicted to herself, narcissistic and void. Stood by Jackson even after his own sister condemned him. Promoted aids awareness? Wonder if her own children/grandchildren got to spend some time with her…

    Not everyone can Doris Day. When will people get there heads out of th 50′s and realize women don’t steal HAPPY husbands. How does a “woman steal a man if he is smitten with his wife. Please!

    As for painkiller addiction…has anybody seen the footage of Elizabeth falling from the horse while filming National Velvet? I saw it on Access Hollywood, it was a brutal fall, which is why she used/abused painkillers. Chronic back pain takes a hard toll on anybody.

    Jewelry, well, if men were buying me jewels, I certainly wouldn’t turn them down.

    On a lighter note………….

    Years ago, I recall reading a “guess which celebrity” question about an aging female celebrity that had been married many times and had a penchant for diamonds. The article said that the woman was known to cuss like a sailor and loudly expel multiple intestinal gases and then blame one of her dogs. I’ve always thought that was Elizabeth. lol

    This is truly repulsive. Talk about spitting on someone’s grave who absolutely does not deserve it. Like all humans, Elizabeth Taylor had her faults, but certainly did much more to make this world a better place than any of you self-righteous, sanctimonious, “moralistic” hypocrites. Time to delete this site from my favs. Just…yuck. I need a shower.

    Who made you God all of a sudden?!!!!

    Whaever. You sound like a little jealous to me. And JUDGEMENTAL.

    Surely you must have known that Debbie Reynolds was already having problems with Eddie Fisher, right?

    Have you forgotten that she went to Betty Ford to clean herself from alcohol and presecription drugs.

    In the 1980s!!!!!!

    I can say more, but seriously you are off. You truly are being JUDGEMENTAL … and JEALOUS.

    Elizabeth was a great star and a great PERSON.

    One of my favorite quotes from Richard Burton TO Elizabeth at one time was
    “Quiet, Tubby, or I shall belt thee in thy tiny chops.”

    He also loving called her Lumpy.

    I don’t think any of this was Really necessary to print, actually. Everyone is human and has their faults, temptations and downfalls….she lived a hell of a life on her own terms. Good for her. Few can say that…..

    Elizabeth Taylor was born with 9 lives and she used them all. Debbie Reynolds has acknowledged
    the fact that she and Elizabeth were on a cruise,and they had a talk and all was forgiven between the two. As far as Sybil Burton was concerned, she married a younger man Jordan Christopher Not long after the divorce from Richard Burton. After Elizabeth and Richard divorced the 2nd time, he remarried Susan Hunt, and was married to Sally Hay when he did. If any of us on these pages are lucky, we will have at least 1 great love in our lives. Through her many marriages, Elizabeth considered herself to have 2 great loves. Mike Todd and Richard Burton. In the twilight of her life, Elizabeth helped to raise money, and that was her way of serving to help others. Because of hip replacements and back injuries,Elizabeth traveled mostly by wheelchair, but she stood tall to raise money to help others. If Elizabeth was an early reminder of a Diva, it is because others chose to cater to her and her demands. Elizabeth has gone into her other life, but I believe she is going to be able to keep her public mesmerized about her life for a long, long time.

  17. By Leo
    On March 24, 2011 at

    Elizabeth and Richard did a play on Broadway called Private Lives. He was married to Sally Hay when he died. It does Not always matter what the public think of you when you are gone, but I will bet dollars to donuts that Elizabeth Taylor’s children will Not be writing any Mommie Dearest tell all about her. Her adult children
    avoided the limelight, and it is my understanding that they were at her side when she closed her eyes. I do Not think there is anything that I Need to know about Elizabeth that I did Not already know,but I am looking forward to the many pictures taken during her life that I may have missed. PEACE!!

    Bitter much? She’s a legend and like someone said, people wanted to give her the gifts and I don’t think the men minded either, either giving her jewels, or being stolen. It’s not like they went against their will.

    Let’s see now, she did all that in her 79 years? Some celebs today do all that & worse in less than a 24 hour span & yet, they’re worshipped & adored. Who cares? We all have our sins & from the sounds of Liz, she’s made amends, so let her RIP Janet, pick on someone else who’s alive & can fight their own battles.

  25. By XYZ

    FYI, she was another MK/mind controlled slave. Her “falling from a horse” backstory of why she had so many health problems is likely more related to severe sexual abuse. I think she was a genuinely luminous spirit who got targeted, early on, and was “owned” by the system. the way she acted out was how many sex slaves act out – as soon as they are too “old” to be abused as children/teens they get married a lot, always seeking love and protection, but almost always ending up with more “handlers” who abuse them more. Welcome to the real world. Welcome to the real Hollyweird!

    I once became acquainted with Liz’s ex daughter in law who was married to Liz’s son from Wilding, I believe. While she was not overly negative about Liz she revealed when she divorced, Liz wanted to pay her off if she would give up her daughter, which she did not. I remember her saying Liz, with all her money, did nothing to help her grandchild in terms of helping with college or with becoming involved with her rearing. I found that interesting and telling. By the way, her ex daughter in law did a great job raising her daughter.

    David Chalfant, who worked at the Whitman-Walker Clinic in Washington, D.C., lauds Elizabeth Taylor for standing up and giving voice to the fight against the spread of HIV at a time when others were silent, saying, “[Her involvement] created a sea change in the way people in Washington, across the country and around the world looked at HIV and AIDS. For her to step out and do that very famous commercial where she holds up a condom and says, ‘This is the one way we know to help prevent the spread of HIV and AIDS — before our sitting president [Reagan] even said the words ‘HIV’ and ‘AIDS’ in public was quite a statement.” She was the first celebrity to join the cause. [Since then] many celebrities have lent their name, from Angelina Jolie to Lady Gaga, but no one had the iconic position and the American spirit and heart that Elizabeth Taylor had. No one stood up the way she did when everyone else was still silent.” And instead of raking her over for the coals for using private jets, etc., for her fundraising activities, how about considering the bigger picture: She helped to raise millions of dollars–along with public consciousness–for AIDS research.

    Tell us, Janet, exactly what have YOU done for society that comes anywhere close to what Elizabeth Taylor did? Shame on you.

  29. By Anon1
    On March 25, 2011 at

    Sounds like any other Hollywood actress to me. She came from a different era when men actually used to cater to women and put up with all that high maintenance crap, dont hate her for reaping the benefits of that.. would you turn away diamonds from anyone? also her charity work more than makes up for all of that nonsense ..I think you are forgetting how difficult it was in the 80′s to support the AIDS cause and what her contribution actually meant to society

    @The American: She was born in England.

    Second, Janet, you’ve finally done it. Letting your homophobic and racist readers post with no censure and now trashing Elizabeth Taylor when she’s not even cold?

    Say what you will about her, but Elizabeth Taylor was the star of her generation, did more for AIDS awareness than just about anyone, and lived a live that most of us could only dream of. So she was a diva. So are the rest of Hollywood.

    She was an icon. You don’t even make punctuation mark status. I’m done with you and your site.

  31. By Strom
    On March 25, 2011 at

    Hahaha the homo enablers are out today it seems. The $$$$ that has gone to AIDS research pales is so much greater than for many diseases that could have been eliminated. Instead this money has been spent on a disease that is largely caused by behavior. Liz could have done more by using her voice to influence the behavior.

    lippp, I believe you’re talking about my cousin… her name was Beth and she was the first wife of Michael Wilding Jr… they had a daughter, Leyla… just so you know, you’re wrong… Liz paid for every penny of schooling for Leyla, she took her on extravagant vacations, she always made sure her granddaugher had everything. I can’t imagine Beth saying differently unless she has sour grapes because her marriage didn’t work out (they lived in a commune in Wales). Anyway, wanted to clear that up, Liz had a very generous heart.

    Janet, I’m shocked you write such ugliness about someone who hasn’t even been dead more than a few days… I get this feeling you feel ‘wronged’ by Liz somehow.

    Elizabeth Taylor thought she didn’t have to pay for anything either. She stiffed my ex for $1100 for cleaning the massive hard to get to windows of her estate. We were young and struggling to make his business work. I wanted to sue, he wouldn’t let me because she was Liz Taylor. I couldn’t stand her after that.

    I agree with you about Elizabeth Taylor. She played by her own rules. She knew Fisher had a wife and two little children. She had very little self respect. It sounds silly today, but it isn’t. Debbie may have “forgiven” her, but believe me it is just a scab. Children really don’t matter to people today.

    You tell the truff — she didn’t get to be on the tabloids every single week for being Debbie Reynolds. We all loved Debbie more (at least I did) but Liz was the ultimate “I don’t give a shit” actress. And yes, her “illnesses” were all some form of her not being able to deal with the crap she laid down for herself.

  43. By Reta
    On March 25, 2011 at

    What I admired about Elizabeth taylor was she was a BROAD! She had elephant balls when it came to standing up for herslef or a friend. I didn’t like MJ and still think he was a child molester, but Elizabeth stood by him because she was his FRIEND. That’s what real friends DO or they aren’t your friends.
    She was a one of a kind fireball in a tiny package, and a damn good actress as well. TMC is going to be running a long tribute of her movies, so look out for that. I’m happy she’s not suffering anymore. Wonder who’s going to get the giant “rock” diamond from Burton, and the other incredible jewelry she had. Hope she has it all mapped out fairly or there is going to be a huge fight!

    On March 25, 2011 at

    Richard Burton and Elizabeth may have shared a great love story, but at the end of their times together, he married two different times, and so did she. In the mid 70′s Burton said that he and Elizabeth lived a lavish lifestyle that included floors of hotel rooms, yachts (The Kalizma) named after his daughter Kate, and her daughter Liza and their adopted daughter Maria.
    In the interview Burton claimed that when he and Elizabeth parted, he was down to his last million. After marrying John Warner whom Elizabeth campaigned for and help to become Senator from Va. she went on to do the play “The Little Foxes”. When Elizabeth divorced Warner, she was overweight and very unhappy, and practically had to start all over again to establish herself as a TV movie actress. Entering the world of perfumes and charities is what (I believe) gave Elizabeth a true purpose after divorcing her last husband (construction worker Larry Fortensky). We can say anything that we choose to say about Elizabeth, but we have to admit she held our attention, and even Now she still has it!!

    Did you read her body of work?
    Are you on number 5 to top her body work
    So she liked diamonds and she liked to be spoiled what women doesn’t?

    This is an actress that most people don’t even know that she had children. Few can tell you how many. Even less can name them and almost none can say they have ever seen a picture of her with her with one of her children. But everyone knows how many times she’s been married and probably can name almost if not all of her husbands. Tells you something about what kind of a mother she was.

  48. By Jennface
    On March 25, 2011 at

    Yes, she was self-indulgent and had people that indulged her every whim since childhood. She lived in a time where they milked every husband and boyfriend for diamonds and houses. Zsa Zsa bragged about it. Unfortunately they were both taken in the end by a pretty boy and a Prince(?).

    Liz did a lot for raising money and awareness of AIDS very early on. Why? Because her daughter-in-law died of it.

    Liz was the most beautiful woman in the world. No one should speak ill of the dead. She may have not been the nicest person in the world but nor was she the worst.

    Let’s see … Janet used to be “famous” back in the 1980s. She has the post, and she decides to “F*** up the gig, HER gig, by dissing one of the most famous Hollywood Legends living today.

    Why I ask myself? I think it could be because Janet was DISSED for an interview. Or is it because she is just like the FAKE CHRISTIANS from Westboro who are simply NOT Christian.

    How dare you put this post up on the day of her burial.

    Most of Elizabeth Taylor’s massive fortune will go to the two AIDS charities with whom she was most famously associated.

    Screen queen Elizabeth Taylor has left behind a fortune worth at least $600 million, much of which is expected to go to the AIDS charities she championed for decades. Her famous jewelry collection, valued at an eye-popping $150 million in 2002, is likely to be auctioned off with the bulk of the proceeds going to the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation and amfAR, the AIDS charity she helped found in 1985, according to WFLD/Fox TV Chicago. “From what I understand, she seems to have been very wise about her investments,” said a financial planner who has worked with other Hollywood A-listers. At the time of her 1994 divorce from her last husband, Larry Fortensky, Taylor’s net worth was estimated at $608.4 million. That figure could now be well in excess of $1 billion. During the 1990s, Taylor reportedly earned about $2 per second, or about $63 million per year. Her famed perfume, White Diamonds, earned more than $70 million last year, according to reports.

At least Angelina wasn’t Jennifer’s best friend. Liz was a fairly good actress and she was truly a ‘movie star’…and she is one the last ones to go, so Hollywood is playing it up. She did have a great sense of humor, and I think that was her saving grace.

    Elizabeth was used by all the men in her life. Nicky Hilton greatly mistreated her; Michael Wilding could not support his family so she had to sell her soul to MGM to buy a house for them; She helped finance Around the World in 80 Days for Mike Todd; Eddie Fisher took advantage of her widow hood. He should have understood her need for a shoulder to cry on instead of taking advantage of her grief; Burton used her for publicity he couldn’t get by his acting and dumped her when she turned 40. He publicly humiliated her by chasing younger women and spilling secrets of his private life with her; She and Richard loved each other but not enuf to give up alcohol. She paid for Warner to get a senate seat; Fortensky treated her badly to say the least and used her for money even after they divoriced. I read that she was abused as a child by a family member. She also didn’t take care of her health I agree. The only person who didn’t use her was Michael Jackson. She didn’t have to pay anything for his friendship. Maybe that is why she chose to be buried near him. I am glad she made money from her perfume and received the Humanitarian Award at the Oscars. She was the most beautiful woman in the world.

  62. By Reta
    On March 26, 2011 at

    Diandra, I agree with everything you said except one: she had her “spot” picked out apparently and waiting for her for quite some time and it’s right above her parents which I’m sure she paid to bury right where they are and bought her own place at the same time to assure it would be availible when the time came. That Michael Jackson happened to be nearby, either was a coincidence, or HIS buying of a plot to be near HERS. I know all he would have had to do was ask her and she’d tell him where her spot would be when the time came. I, however, don’t believe ANY of that happened. He is buried in a famous graveyard where most of Hollywood’s famous wind up. It is a city unto it’self now with all the H’royalty now rotting away there, both below and above ground. What a waste of a nice park in prime real estate.

    By the way, don’t almost ALL women when getting married, get a ring of some sort? Usually there is a diamond if possible. Eliabeth couldn’t help it if the men she married all had deep pockets and wanted to adorn her with giant rocks, and she certainly wasn’t allergic to them. If OUR men could afford those, i’m sure we’d ALL be dragging one hand nearer the ground. Men buy what they can afford, or go into debt over it, but that’s not the woman’s fault. SHE didn’t MAKE him do ANYTHING. It all comes down to choice and what someone can afford. I’m happy she got beautiful jewelry given to her. She certainly paid for it in many many hurtful ways as Diandra has so simply reminded us. Viva la Liz I say! And glad she got to have at least some great times and men and baubles and live a good long live surrounded by love and admiration. I look forward to the movie run on her, it should be a great reminder of how good an actress she really WAS and maybe introduce her to a generation who may not already know her work.

    Hey there “Jinky” aka “carole raphaelle davis”, I just wanted to ask a facetious question of you….How many trees do you suppose are cut down in order to print your precious literary works, bashing people for not being perfect, like yourself? Or are your articles printed on some special, ecologically friendly material that I am not aware of? Trees are overrated right? Just wonderin’

    Elizabeth may not have been perfect but at least the money that she left behind from the so-called “blood diamonds”, will go to a good cause.

    The old saying goes something like this…those who live in glass houses should not throw stones.

    It seems that it has always been determined that Richard Burton was the one of the great loves of Elizabeth’s life when you include Mike Todd. Elizabeth had only been married to Mike Todd for 13 months before his death in that plane crash. As far as Burton is concerned, their relationship may have started out as pure passion, but there was an undeniable bond between these two. As much as a lot of us love an old fashioned love story for all times, The Taylor/Burton love was Not to be. While these two former spouses were on Broadway performing in “Private Lives” Richard married Sally Hay. He had to have known this would drive Elizabeth over the edge. Richard is always written as the great love of her life, but how could he be, when he married his 4th wife right under Elizabeth’s nose. How cruel could he have been to Elizabeth to marry someone while appearing with her in a play for all to see??
    Richard Burton may receive a lot of credit for the well publicized glamour that he contributed to the Taylor Burton Saga, but in the end he broke her heart before his death. There are now love letters that he wrote to her over the years, but how can you compare those love letters to him marrying his last wife right in front of Elizabeth for all the world to see. I think that Richard may have been the love that she Never got over, but had Mike Todd Not perished in that airplane crash,there might have never been a Richard Burton in the life of Elizabeth Taylor. We will Never know, but one thing that we do know is her final years were spent raising funds to help others, and that is an even better memory to be known for than how many times you she was married. In the end, she shared her heart with others!!

    This is an unbelievably heartless diatribe that isn’t warranted. Nowhere did I read that Elizabeth Taylor was a saint. Sure, her AIDS work was exemplary and she deserved all praise for that, but her character flaws were as obvious as the flaws in her jewelry were not. I never got the impression she thought of herself as deserving of what she had so much as lucky and determined to enjoy it all.

    When you’re at the end of your run, it’ll be interesting to see how many people have positive things—or anything at all—to say about you.

    Really disgusted.

    In our own way, we all have the ability to be just a little scandalous, and have walked on the wild side,the only difference is we as observers know how to stay in the background and look at others from afar. I am No more right than the next person when it comes to expressing my opinion, but if my opinion counted, I believe that Elizabeth Taylor got our attention in a way that No other Hollywood screen queen ever has. Disagree with her marriages, disagree with her antics, but the reason that Elizabeth has taken up more than 75 comments on this page, is because like Jackie and Diana she is No longer among us. We will Never find a reason to stop talking about Elizabeth, because in reality who else is worth talking about right now. Charlie Sheen has gone stir crazy. Chris Brown is the New O.J./Ike Turner. We may leave a comment, but are these 2 clowns worth talking about?? No and No. Elizabeth Taylor lived and what she did, whether we agree, Elizabeth did things on her own terms. She started out as a young child in the movies with a horse. She got married while a teenager, she then married an older man and had 2 sons with him. After divorcing him she married the man Oscar Winning Producer of Around the World in 80 Days. He was being honored at a dinner in New York, and the only reason that she was Not with him was because she had pneumonia. She had been married to Mike Todd for 13 months and was blissfully happy with their young daughter Liza. After losing Mike she grieved with Eddie Fisher who was a couple with his wife Debbie Reynolds who traveled together and were suppose to be great friends. After Debbie tossed out Eddie, what can you we say, “if she cheat with you, she will cheat on you” and that’s what happened with Eddie. Out the door. Richard Burton had the reputation of a ladies’ man, but everyone knew that he would Never leave his wife Sybil and their 2 daughters. So they thought. Directly after Elizabeth and Richard married, Sybil married a younger man Jordan Christopher, like where did he come from so soon?? Elizabeth and Richard played out their lives in public and in movies. Who could forget The VIPs and The Sandpipers, Night of the Iguana and oh so many movie that made The Burtons the # 1 Movie Star Couple in the World. We all know that Elizabeth had illnesses over the years, but I think the harder part is to grasp that she passed away quietly in the hospital. She had turned 79 on February the 27th, and I think that her leaving so quietly leaves a lot of the writers on these pages wanting to feel that we knew her in our own way. Like Jackie, and Princess Diana magazines and books have always been written about these women, and yes they were interesting with or without that “special” man walking behind them. These women got our attention. We believed some of what we read, and we ignored what we didn’t believe. Either way our own lives traveled the world because of these 3 women, and I do Not believe in our lifetime that there will ever be the kind of attention paid to 1 woman, like it was paid to these 3, Jackie, Diana and Dame Elizabeth Taylor.Just a fan of all 3 women and finally signing off on this topic. PEACE!!!

    There are much worse people/things to pick on in the world. Much, much, much worse.

    I’m glad you felt it justified to diminish her work with AIDS. Can you please list everything you’ve done for the cause. Myself, I volunteered for an AIDS hotline for two years and another two years volunteering at a hospice. What did you do, Janet?

    Kate Middleton is a princess in waiting, but I believe that as William’s wife, she will hold her own without being pushed into someone that she has No intentions of becoming. I believe that she is well prepared to William’s wife without the world placing demands on her. After the wedding,I believe that she is going to be her husband’s wife, and yet be her own woman!!

    Leo, I agree she will be cussed and discussed for a long time.

    Elvis though is the #1 who will never ever be forgotten. Twice a year, for his birth and death, hundreds of thousands come from many countries to Graceland to participate in a week of remembrance. I can’t think of another singer/star/celeb/politician/ who still commands this attention, since 1977.

  83. By Leo
    On March 29, 2011 at

    @ Indy:
    I have to give you credit,
    You really know your stars. Somehow we seemed to have overlooked Elvis for the moment, but you are absolutely right The King Lives. In addition to all the visitors at Graceland, how many Elvis impersonators are out there, I have No clue, but let it be known there is No shame in the game when some unknown get those rhinestone outfits, those dark glasses and sideburns and try to work that Elvis magic. Again, thanks for the reminder!!

    How about some Elvis trivia?? How many Elvis songs, or movies of Elvis can we name right off?
    I’ll start with :
    The Wonder of You (favorite song)
    Viva Las Vegas (with Ann Margret)

  85. By Randall

    Elvis loved gospel, and His song “How great Thou are” is one of his great hymms.

    Leo, I live 14 miles from Graceland, so you can imagine what it’s like with many 1000′s from countries here, with at least a week of fabulous entertainment and trivia things, etc. for a week in January and a week in August. I think “Blue Hawaii” was his best. He was unspeakably handsome, generous, and the best voice ever. “I want you,I need you, I love you”. He’s smiling down from heaven…(words of Rev. Billy Graham).

    @ Indy,
    Thanks for sharing such an exciting revelation.
    Thirty four years of people from all over the world celebrating for 2 weeks out of the year
    in your corner of the globe. In by book, you’ve just become an instant celebrity on these pages by your Graceland connection.
    You mentioned Blue Hawaii,I’ve already mentioned “The Wonder of You”, but I’ve notice so often when a movie has Vegas scenes, Elvis’song “A Little Less Conversation” seems to be an in demand theme song.
    Thanks again Indy for giving us a visualized glimpse of one of our most famous landmarks!!

  89. By Leo

    John Houston is the father of Whitney Houston,he died a few years ago. Others have claimed to be Elvis’ secret child,but Lisa Marie Presley has always been acknowledged as his only child.

    @ Indy:
    It is my understanding that when a person live close to a major attraction, they do Not visit often because they are so used to living so close and there is an avalanche of tourist on every corner. Is it still exciting for you to live so close to Graceland or does it ever get just a bit overwhelming??
    Elvis did a lot of cover songs including “In the Ghetto”, and My Way, and as you already know anything that Elvis sang he put his own signature on it!!

  91. By Indy
    On March 31, 2011 at

    Leo and Randall: Well, I’ve toured Graceland and the entire estate 4 times….2 of those times were to take friends from London. I met him when I was about 8 years (with other school kids)old in front of Graceland and almost fainted with excitement. He was extremely nice and thanked us. Once they had a special day where visitors could walk up to the front (separate from a tour). On the porch was Gladys, his mom, holding a tiny white fluffy dog. Mom talked to her for 10 minutes. The mansion itself is breath-taking. It was also fun to eat at the “Heartbreak Hotel” restaurant and see skads of tourists buying everything in the shops across from G.L. Thanks for all your interest.

    @ Indy:

    It is my understanding that Priscilla was the mastermind to open Graceland to the public as a tourist attraction, to insure future security for Lisa Marie and the Presley Family which included Elvis’ dad Vernon. Other than the amusement parks, it is my understanding that visitors from other countries look forward to visiting Graceland.
    From all indications, Elvis adored his mother
    and I can easily believe the Southern Charm was out in full force that day between your Mom and Gladys doing their conversation.
    Indy, you have been a wonderful spokesperson,
    in inviting us into the World of Graceland. I believe that the pages that we comment on this site is a far second in comparison to some of the people and actions that have taken place right in front of you through the bewildered sights of people visiting the star attraction of The Presley Landmark!!

  94. By Indy
    On March 31, 2011 at

    Leo, Gee I thought I could keep my big mouth shut, but since you mentioned Priscilla…..A few years ago, Pris, LisaMarie, the late Isaac Hayes, Juliette Lewis, and a few other celeb Scientologists came here to open a Scientology Center, about 25 or so miles from G.L. After about one year, it was closed and with no fanfare. E would never have approved of Scientology, as he was raised in a Pentecostal Church and, as you know, learned a lot from listening to choirs and church music. His humble small home in Tupelo, Mss. is also a place not to be missed. Europeans can’t get enough of that place too. (it’s about 100 miles from Graceland). Two small rooms and no bath, shotgun style.

  95. By Leo
    On March 31, 2011 at

    @ Indy:
    It is amazing how The Colonel(Parker) made millions off Elvis primarily because Elvis was a trusting person when it came to signing contracts. It is my understanding that Barbra
    Streisand wanted him to be her co-star in A Star is Born, but “The Colonel nixed that idea,
    and the part went to singer/songwriter/ actor
    Kris Kristofferson. Barbra won her second Oscar with Paul Williams (for songwriter of the song Evergreen). It has been well published that Elvis was Not a wealthy man when he died, which encouraged Priscilla to take on the responsibility of opening Graceland, which ironically has made a fortune for the Presley estate.Thanks for enlightening me about his roots in Tupelo. While we are on the Elvis connection,Lisa Marie was born exactly 9 months to the day of her parents marriage. Through later divorced, Priscilla and Elvis’ only marriages were to each other, yet Lisa Marie has been married a total of 4 times, this present one appears to be the real deal.It is mind boggling that Lisa Marie’s history in music would include being the daughter of “The King of rock & roll in musical circles” and wife to the “King of Pop” the name given coincidently by Elizabeth Taylor when she presented him with an award years ago. Both men died under the age of 50, and both were associated with landmark residents,and sing-a-long musical hits, and it is my understand that Elvis was extremely generous giving furs and cars to those he liked on a moments notice, and having a hearty appetite for peanut butter and banana sandwiches.
    While we all had been expressing our memories
    and nostalgia of Elizabeth, thank you for releasing a quiet
    exit by opening the door and taking us on a whirlwind tour of Elvis’legacy, another well loved superstar of our generation. Stay tuned!!

    While he is still among us,earlier you had mentioned The. Rev. Billy Graham. This man is a true powerhouse and over the years has commanded over a billion people to be part of his spiritual listening audience. Thank you for mentioning his name while using a verse in an earlier post. Just acknowledging him reminds me of the importance that he has presented himself to be for over 50 years in the lives of presidential,influential and everyday people around the world.
    Until next time as my good friend “Miss Rona” would say, “Keep thinking the good thoughts.”

  97. By Indy
    On March 31, 2011 at

    ^^^^^Well, this has turned into quite a nice commentary. So, to summarize, one might say that in our hearts and mind…”The king still lives”. But, as E has reminded his audience many times when they yelled something like “Elvis, you are the king”, he would say. Thank you, but I am not king…there is only One King and that is Jesus Christ.

    The U.S. Senate has passed a Boxer/Feinstein-sponsored resolution honoring Elizabeth Taylor. It reads, in part:
    Whereas Elizabeth Taylor used her fame to raise awareness and advocate for people affected by HIV/AIDS;
    Whereas, at a time when HIV/AIDS was largely an unknown disease and those who were affected by HIV/AIDS were ostracized and shunned, Elizabeth Taylor called for and demonstrated compassion by publicly holding the hand of her friend and former costar, Rock Hudson, after he had announced that he had AIDS;
    Whereas Elizabeth Taylor testified before Congress saying, “It is my hope that history will show that the American people and our leaders met the challenge of AIDS rationally and with all the resources at their disposal, for our sake and that of all humanity.”;
    Whereas, in 1985, Elizabeth Taylor became the Founding National Chairman for the American Foundation for AIDS Research (commonly known as “amfAR”);
    Whereas, in 1991, Elizabeth Taylor founded the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation to provide direct support to those suffering from the disease;
    Whereas the extensive efforts of Elizabeth Taylor have helped educate the public and lawmakers about the need for research, treatment, and compassion for those suffering from HIV/AIDS;
    Resolved, That the Senate recognizes and honors the courageous, compassionate leadership and many professional accomplishments of Elizabeth Taylor; and offers its deepest condolences to her family.

    Interesting that Memphis is a city that had a great opportunity but is filled with heavy BLACK crime and white flight to the suburbs. Elvis would have never lived in the location where Graceland is located now and if the city had not been so corrupt, it would have cleaned up that area long ago and benefited even greater from tourism.

    Elizabeth Taylor learned from her mother and PR agents to lie early and often. She lied about virtually everything: being “first” to raise consciousness and money for AIDs (that was Joan Rivers)and it had more to do with being out of the spot light than sorrow for Rock Hudson; “her” perfumes (that idea, including the name Passion came from boyfriend Henry Wynberg); her “friendships” (she extorted money and gifts from Malcolm Forbes and Michael Jackson for AIDs charities and often sold their gifts to “donate” to AmFar); her morality, she told the ridiculous lie about never having slept with anyone she hadn’t married and even had some of her husbands repeating it. She came on to and proposed marriage to every guy she met, including every husband. She “collected” men pure and simple because she was acquisitive about EVERYTHING and addicted to sex.
    She demanded freebies from hotels restaurants, designers, jewelers, bars…you name it. She rarely showed at events to honor anyone else and could always be found rubbing against the richest and/or most powerful person at any gathering. She insisted on lavish wardrobes for her movies even when the role didn’t call for it so that she could keep much of it. She had crew members on her movies take up collections to buy her gifts when she made 1,000 times more than they did. After her stardom, she was usually unprofessional, keeping cast and crew waiting for hours to see if she was fit to show up. She said that she’d never had an acting lesson, but she was trained like everyone else at MGM and thereafter worked with every major actor, director, hairdresser, costume designer, cameraman, publicist, writer, dialect coach, and make-up person who ever worked in films.
    Her “illnesses” were usually either faked or self-induced for sympathy, attention, and to get out of something. She latched onto Michael Jackson’s sad childhood to make it her own when contemporary news accounts have her living a spoiled child’s dream. She worked far less frequently than almost any other child actor. Count her movies and theirs. She finally “discloses” physical and mental abuse from her father and several husbands after they’re conveniently dead. Now she’s come up with an imaginary last letter from Burton wanting to come back to her. No one ever saw it and alas it was “buried with her”. She never forgave him for dismissing her from his life, so she decided to “become” his widow. She wasn’t.
    Let’s face it, this ridiculous, self-involved woman was truly beautiful for about 20 years total. Most of her life she was a loud, vulgar, grasping buffoon. She was a mediocre actress at best; any competent actor could (and did) do better with the same material. She wanted money and power and a life of luxury which she thought she “deserved” because most people thought she was pretty. Along the road she hurt far, far many people than she ever helped.

  113. By Strom
    On May 7, 2011 at

    Nevertheless I believe it may all be true and any star that is so worshipped probably has the same foibles. However much she took as freebies, it pales in comparison with the modern day fame whores Kardashian and Lopez. The met Liz’s bid and raised it and raised it and neither do they have an inth of the acting ability Liz had. Neither did Liz have near as much black meat hung in her smokehouse as did these Liz wannabes either.

    How do you know she didn’t pay her own way or that these ‘perks’ weren’t gifted her? Where did you get this information?

    I think your taking Liz too seriously. She was just a beautiful woman who entertained us with her beauty, her movies, and yes, her shananigans. So what – she took Debbie’s husband. Life isn’t fair even to the rich and beautiful. And, as far as we know, she didn’t steal anything – her money and jewels were GIVEN to her – by rich men and the fans who paid the movie ticket price to see her on screen. Aren’t there other, more dangerous people to talk scornfully about??
