ELVIS: WE CAN'T STOP LOVING YOU
We can never get enough of Elvis and now we have a new book to look forward to that promises a truly inside glimpse at his many idiosyncrasies. We first met Sheila Caan (she was Sheila Ryan in those days) when she plopped herself down on a lounge chair next to us at the pool at 999 Doheny Drive . It was the height of swinging Hollywood in the 70’s and this was the hippest high-rise building near Sunset Strip. Sheila was a naturally pretty blonde who was DATING Elvis Presley! Her romance with Elvis lasted from ’73 to ’75 when she met and married James Caan. Now she’s written a juicy book about her time with Elvis called FAME ON ME and she’s almost ready to shop it around to publishers. I asked Sheila to slip me a few tidbits about Elvis that I didn’t already know. She told me he was shy, and got nervous on first dates. She said he loved Pink Panther movies and ate something called “hamburger steak” every night for a year. Best of all, she revealed he was proud of his “webbed toes” – he thought he had them because he was born a twin (His brother Jesse died at birth.) WE always thought webbed toes came from inbreeding – as in marrying one’s cousin! Whatever – we can’t wait to get our hands on FAME ON ME!
