Priscilla Presley news, reviews, interviews & articles
Priscilla Beaulieu Presley (born Priscilla Ann Wagner on May 24, 1945, in Brooklyn, New York) is an American model, author and actress and the only wife of Elvis Presley. Her biological father, James Wagner, was a pilot who was killed in a plane crash when Priscilla was just an infant. Her mother, Norwegian-American Anna Lillian Iversen, then married Paul Beaulieu, a United States Air Force officer. Beaulieu took over the raising of Priscilla and is known as her father. The Beaulieus were stationed in West Germany at the same time as Elvis during his stint in the United States Army. Priscilla was 14 years old when she met Elvis in Wiesbaden.
Priscilla Presley has continued to work on Elvis-related projects in recent years. If I Can Dream: Elvis Presley with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
was released in 2015, and 2016 delivered The Wonder of You
, while HBO currently has an Elvis documentary in the works. Priscilla is currently touring the world with her Elvis & Me: An Evening with Priscilla Presley - An Open Conversation
show. The tour - which includes an October 29 stop at New York's NYCB Theatre at Westbury, beyond upcoming stops in Canada and Australia
- promises to be full of stories never before heard publicly. To learn more about An Evening with Priscilla Presley, I had the opportunity to have some questions answered by Ms. Presley via e-mail.
Interview with Priscilla Presley by Alan Jones (Australia Radio Sept 4, 2017).
She was married to the late Elvis Presley for six years, prior to his death in 1977. And in an interview with the Today show's Richard Wilkins, aired Wednesday, Priscilla Presley candidly spoke on life with the iconic singer.
Admitting that she never viewed her husband as a worldwide phenomenon, the 72-year-old revealed a vulnerable and softer side to his persona: 'He poured his heart out to me'. 'I still remember, vividly, picking up the phone, the reaction of not believing it, there was no way I could comprehend…' she said. 'Going back to Graceland and hearing his father wailing, crying, crying out his name, it was probably the most heartbreaking sound I'd ever heard. Priscilla appeared on the Channel Nine breakfast program to promote her upcoming Australian tour in November, that will see her share stories from her fascinating life.

Lisa Marie Presley
was photographed on May 29 arriving at the home of her mother Priscilla with her oldest daughter Riley Keough
as the mother-of-four enjoyed a day out with her three girls after a difficult few months. It marked one of the very few occasions that the 49-year-old has ever been seen with all of her girls, and was the first time that Lisa has been photographed with her 8-year-old twins Finley and Harper since they were sent to live with Priscilla Presley
SHE was the wife of rock 'n' roll's reigning king - a union that put Priscilla Presley on an irreversible path to stardom. And though 2017 marks 40 years since the passing of Elvis, the association between her and the legendary performer is still as strong as ever.
'I miss his laughter', she says, eyes brightening at the memory. 'His laughter was so contagious. He'd start and everyone would start - they didn't know what they were laughing about, they just got so much enjoyment from being with him.

Today, she says, she would rather talk about the music. She talks about the first time she saw him play live, when he made his legendary '68 Comeback Special
on TV, shortly after she had given birth to their only child, Lisa Marie
. 'I was in the audience and I looked at him and thought: 'Oh my God, I had no idea!' she says, laughing. 'I thought: 'He's really good! He's really sexy! Oh my God!''
On August 27, 1965, Elvis Presley met The Beatles at his California home. One memorable evening, the Colonel
arranged for Elvis to meet four famous people. But I believe it was the Beatles who were eager to meet Elvis, not the other way around. In fact, when John, Paul, Ringo and George walked in, Elvis was relaxing on the couch, looking at TV without the sound. He barely bothered to get up. Naturally he was curious about the Beatles. He respected them. Mostly he respected the way they had achieved their artistic freedom. He saw how they did whatever they liked to do. There are no photos from that historic meeting between the King of Rock 'n' Roll and The Fab Four, but Priscilla Presley recalls that evening ...

Well it seems it is on for real, a Beverly Hills auction house began accepting bids Friday for Elvis Presley's former personal planes, the Lisa Marie
and Hound Dog II
. The auction appeared to dump cold water on a social media-fuelled campaign pleading with Graceland
operators to keep the planes on display, as they've been for 30 years. Graceland's new owners stirred controversy last April by moving to end a joint venture with the planes' owners, a Tennessee-based group called OKC Partnership. Graceland notified OKC that the planes had to be removed from Graceland on or shortly after April 26, 2015. AND words are flying between fans and EPE, and Priscilla has again responded to the criticism.

Taking on the role of the Wicked Queen in Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs, Priscilla Presley proved to be a natural under the spotlight. Starring alongside Jarred Christmas and Warwick Davis she appeared to be in her element while taking in the boos and hisses from the crowd, looking positively evil in her costume, which she described as 'sensational' on the opening night of the show. Wearing a bejeweled horned headpiece with a floor length gown which braved a thigh high split, the actress commanded the audience's attention.
