More on Lisa's marriage [04 Apr 2006|07:52pm]

[ mood | stressed ]

Rocker LISA MARIE PRESLEY loves Japan and travels there often, which is why she called upon wedding planner to the stars KARA KEANEY to make the country's many traditions a part of her wedding to longtime love MICHAEL LOCKWOOD.

"Lisa and Michael both genuinely love Japan," Kara, of Kara Keaney Events, tells ET. "[The wedding] was so simple and intimate and quiet."

Lisa Marie and her musician beau Michael said "I do" on January 22 in Kyoto, Japan and Kara says the country's customs played a huge part in their big day.

"We did something really unusual and cool," Kara says. "The ceremony was in the garden and right after they said their vows, we toasted the bride and groom with a sake ceremony which is an ancient tradition in Japan. It was really beautiful."

Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed a 3-hour, 12-course Japanese meal that consisted of sashimi, rice dumplings and crab tempura.

The happy couple also treated their guests to welcoming and parting gifts, which included a hand-painted fan, Lisa Marie's favorite champagne, a silk scarf, and a personalized note from the bride and groom.

"It basically says, 'Thank you so much for being here and sharing this special day with us,'" Kara reveals.

The master wedding planner, who's been working with Lisa Marie for about 10 years, says with only two days to arrange the nuptials, it's a miracle it went off without a hitch.

"Actually something went so right," Kara says. "Right after the ceremony was over, and just as they said their vows, it started to snow. It was magical."

LATEST: ELVIS PRESLEY's ex-wife PRISCILLA has endorsed the designation of the singer's former home, Graceland, as a US National Historic Landmark, because he would have loved the attention. The rock 'n' roll legend's Memphis, Tennessee mansion was awarded the status last week (27MAR06), joining a select list of American sites including the White House, Pearl Harbor and the Alamo. And Priscilla insists the late star would be thrilled by the honour. She says, "It's very strange to have Graceland declared a National Historic Landmark, because it was our home first and foremost. "I had no idea when I opened the house to the public in 1982 that it would receive so many visitors. Elvis would be very pleased about it."

[ mood | stressed ]

PRISCILLA PRESLEY blames divided loyalties on the breakdown of her marriage to rock 'n' roll king ELVIS PRESLEY, revealing the birth of their daughter made it "too difficult" to support him fully. The 60-year-old actress admits she was consumed by her husband's fame and hectic lifestyle, and after LISA MARIE was born in 1968 she found it increasingly difficult to balance being his wife with motherhood. She says, "He (Elvis) was always the first, he was the first of everything he did. I lost my identity to an extent. Anyone can get lost in that world. "When Lisa Marie came I felt like I was serving two masters. "I stopped travelling with him but it was still very difficult. He was very demanding."

'Elvis would have approved of Lockwood' [29 Mar 2006|07:17pm]

[ mood | okay ]

PRISCILLA PRESLEY is convinced her former wildchild daughter LISA-MARIE's fourth marriage will last forever - because it's one her late husband, ELVIS, would have approved of. The socialite was thrilled when her daughter wed guitarist MICHAEL LOCKWOOD in Japan earlier this year (06) - because she's sure he's exactly the guy she needs after three disastrous marriages to MICHAEL JACKSON, DANNY KEOUGH and NICOLAS CAGE. Presley says, "I think her (Lisa-Marie) father would really like Michael. I feel for the first time Lisa is at peace. I think she's found her soulmate." Priscilla was among the guests when her daughter wed Lockwood in a traditional Japanese ceremony in Kyoto in January (06).

Charlie Hodge has died: Following several unconfirmed reports during the day, Charmaine Voisine has sent us this sad message, subsequently confirmed by Marty Lacker: It is with a very sad heart that I have to pass on to all Elvis fans around the world that a very close friend and confidante, Charlie Hodge passed away earlier on this evening as a result of lung cancer that was inoperable.  He had a couple of treatments of radiation therapy in between December and January.

Charlie Hodge first met Elvis Presley on a transport ship enroute to Germany from New York back in September 1958 and they served in the Army together and this is where their very close friendship developed and continued until  Elvis passed away in 1977.

Charlie Hodge was the guy that sang back up for Elvis, played guitar and also handed Elvis water and scarf's during his shows in the 1970's.

 Charlie has been performing nightly at the Memories Theatre for the past few years and he was only diagnosed in December 2005 that he had lung cancer and continued to perform despite that he had cancer, like Elvis, he was a true and dedicated performer for the love of his fans. We have designed a forum where fans of Elvis Presley and Charlie Hodge can come together to post up messages of condolences for the family of Charlie Hodge and also to post up messages they can share with the the Elvis community of friends and fans ~ their own experiences of meeting Charlie Hodge , spending time with him ~ or seeing him perform LIVE ~ 
This forum is in Memory of a wonderful person and great friend and confidante to our beloved Elvis Presley We would like to welcome you all to join this forum and post your messages - we will be making sure that his family and friends see this forum To join:- http://launch.groups.yahoo.com/group/Charlie-Hodge or :-

Presley's fancy linen is sure to cotton on [06 Mar 2006|07:39pm]

[ mood | rushed ]

Terry Brown

WHAT'S in a name? A whole lot of pillow case sales when it's Presley; a bunch of books if it's Fonda.

Two of the world's most recognisable pension-aged women drew 1000 fans each in Melbourne yesterday.
And they couldn't have done it more differently.

Jane Fonda, 68, one-time khaki-wearing Leftie, packed Crown's Palladium at a $59-a-plate lunch.

And more than 28 years after Elvis left the building feet-first and 32 years after she'd divorced him, Priscilla proved the Presley surname was still king.

In town to spruik linen, the name drew Elvis fans to Myer, fans who didn't particularly need bamboo-fibre bedding or $320 Priscilla Presley quilt covers.

They bought $60 pillow cases they didn't need either, to get near the nearest thing to the King.

And old rockers with Elvis on their cars and Presleyesque names on kids' birth certificates.

Presley, 60, said that a passion for luxurious-but-affordable linen brought her half way across the world, adding "dust mites cannot survive bamboo".

Looking at her heavily made-up, super-smooth skin and oddly shaped lips, anything was possible.

"Is she gonna have some more kids?" a man yelled out.

"I can hardly take care of the two that I have," Presley answered, and it was hard to argue.

Her first, Lisa Marie, went and married Michael Jackson on her way to a quartet of husbands.

The next, Navarone, was booked for possession of magic mushrooms and dope smoking.

It would have dismayed Elvis, who hated druggies almost as much as he hated Lefties, and wanted to be a narcotics agent for Richard Nixon.

On a tour of FBI headquarters, Elvis even bagged Fonda for unspecified "unsavoury activities".

"Their ilk have a lot to answer for in the hereafter for the way they have poisoned young minds."

Times change things, though, despite Priscilla's appearance and the spooky way fans talked about Elvis in the present tense.

Asked if she would catch up with Fonda here, Presley said: "I've caught up with her already."

Caught up, it emerged, was a passing hello, celeb to celeb, in the airport's Chairman's Lounge.

Katherine Quinney got to the front of the Presley queue by virtue of a broken leg and a wheelchair.

Daughter Gracelyn, 4, was named to sound like Graceland; Elysha-Marie, almost 2, to reflect Lisa-Marie. Her first daughter, Presley, passed away.

"Because of the wheelchair, they put me at the front," she said.

"It's good that I fell down the stairs."

Maryanne Britt, who drives a Mercedes with the licence plate ELVIS1, came at 10.30am.

She showed off an Advice of Delivery form, confirming Elvis received a koala and letter she sent.

It was signed and dated "8-15-77", the day before the King died.

Maryanne wouldn't say what was in the letter, but it sounded hot.

"I thought I'd killed him, the poor bugger, I'd given him a heart attack," she said.

And a guy with slick hair and mutton chops showed off an Elvis wallet he'd just got signed.

"It's the closest you can get to Elvis," he said.

Lisa Marie's $952m pre-nup [01 Mar 2006|06:14pm]

[ mood | working ]

Lisa Marie Presley signed a $952m pre-nuptial agreement before she wed for the fourth time, according to US reports.

Insiders say Lisa - the late Elvis' only child is desperate to protect her fortune after previous marriages failed.

The 38-year-old married musical director Michael Lockwood, 44, in a lavish $340,000 Japanese ceremony last month.

And sources say the mum-of-two is desperate to have more kids.

One pal said: "She swore the only reason she would get married again would be to have more children.

"She was hoping to be pregnant by the time they announced the wedding. "Only time will tell."

Lisa, worth a reported $952m, earns an estimated $8.2m a year from the tourism business surrounding Elvis' former home, Graceland.

She sold part of the lavish Memphis estate last year for $136m.

She met guitarist Lockwood two years ago but she insisted on the pre-nuptial agreement in case the union fails.

A source said: "However much she loves him, she has to protect her fortune."

American celebrity divorce lawyer Raoul Felder told the National Enquirer: "Because of her tremendous wealth, this would be the mother of all pre-nups."

Lisa Marie's new father-in-law told the magazine: "We're really happy.

"Lisa Marie is lovely."

She was previously married to Nicolas Cage and Michael Jackson. Her first husband and the father of her two children, Danny Keough, was best man at the ceremony in Kyoto on January 22.

One witness said: "You could feel the love.

"They were gazing into each other's eyes and stealing little kisses through the service."

PRISCILLA PRESLEY has launched her own collection of fine linens after falling for quality bedsheets and towels when she was married to ELVIS.

The famous widow unveiled the Luxury Linens Collection, with design partner BRUNO SCHIAVI, in Sydney, Australia, yesterday (28FEB06).

The show featured items in the range including bed linens, cushions, towels and bathrobes.

Presley explains, "When it comes to developing a personal taste, you have to start somewhere.

"(Living with Elvis at Graceland) was my first introduction into finery and once you've slept in fine linens, you can't go back."

The 60-year-old insists that her linen collection is high-end, but priced affordably, and according to Presley, provides the best chance of a good night's sleep.

I'm just thinking out loud, but I'm really sick of the community layout. Like, really, REALLY sick of it.

Is there anyone who's good at graphics and wants to design something new? And get some credit on the user info page?

If there's more than one of you who's interested I'll look at what you come up with and pick my favourite.

I'd make one myself but it wouldn't look as nice.

Priscilla Presley defends family [28 Feb 2006|07:17pm]

[ mood | okay ]

From: AAP By Jonathon Moran
February 28, 2006

PRISCILLA Presley says she is offended by suggestions there is something wacky about her family.

Tabloid magazines this week labelled as "kooky kabuki" her daughter Lisa Marie's marriage to musician Michael Lockwood in Japan, with both wearing kimonos.
"It does offend me," Presley told AAP in Sydney today.

"It was not wacky in any sense of the word because you appreciate a culture and you appreciate tradition, that is wacky for somebody to say that."

Lisa Marie and Lockwood exchanged vows in a traditional Japanese ceremony on January 22, both wearing traditional Japanese costumes.

It was a fourth marriage for Lisa Marie who has previously been married to Nicolas Cage, Michael Jackson and Danny Keough, the father of her two children.

Priscilla Presley walked her daughter down the aisle and gave her away.
"The wackiness isn't on our end," said Presley.

"I don't think we have ever been known to be wacky.

"Maybe having lived our whole lives in front of everyone, things might look that way but this was so well thought out and she is very happy."

Presley described Lisa Marie's wedding as "beautiful".

"The wedding was everything she wanted and the mood was so tranquil and very traditional in dress," she said.

Priscilla Presley arrived in Australia on Saturday for the worldwide launch of her bed linen range with Australian fashion designer Bruno Schiavi, titled The Priscilla Presley Collection.

The 60-year-old was married to Elvis from 1967 to 1973 and has two children, Lisa Marie with Presley and Navarone Garibaldi with partner Marco Garibaldi.

She acknowledged that Elvis, who died of a heart attack in 1977, was always going to be a big part of her life.

"It was such an impactful era that I think everyone feels they own a little bit of Elvis," she said after the launch at Sydney's inner city Myer department store.

"As far as separating myself, I can't really deny that that was history and I was very much a part of history in that sense.

"It was a great time, a great era and a great loss."

All Shook Up Over Priscilla

By Christine Sams
February 21, 2006

Elvis fans showed a flicker of excitement last week with news Priscilla Presley is planning a visit to Australia to launch a signature range of linen.

Of course, it wasn't the upmarket sheets that got fans excited, rather the prospect of the King's wife being here in the flesh.

Insiders say Presley is heading to Australia a couple of days before the official Sydney launch of her signature range on February 28.

That means she'll have some time off to relax, which might just include watching a few shows at Melbourne's upcoming fashion festival.

The business relationship between Presley and Sydney-raised designer Bruno Schiavi - who helped her design the linen range - is interesting because it shows off Schiavi's strengthening reputation among international celebrities.

Schiavi, who initially found fame inventing the pocket sock (as you do), developed a strong local reputation working on signature lines for celebrities such as Delta Goodrem and Mark Philippoussis before shifting to the US.

PRISCILLA and LISA MARIE PRESLEY proved they've still got ELVIS' love for cheap fast food when they visited Las Vegas, Nevada at the weekend (11FEB06) - by declining a sumptuous late-night snack and opting for grilled cheese sandwiches instead.

Mother and daughter called on Pure nightclub boss GREG JARMOLOWICH to help them pick a suitable late-night treat after checking out SIR ELTON JOHN's Red Piano show at Caesar's Palace.

The catering expert suggested all manner of celebrity-style snacks, but the Presleys just wanted something simple.

He tells website EyeOnLasVegas.com, "I gave them a breakdown of all the great restaurants here at Caesar's but all they wanted were grilled cheese sandwiches.

"We called Mesa Grill who prepared dozens of sandwiches and a huge bowl of French fries!"

The high-calorie snack mirrors that of Elvis' favourite treat - grilled peanut butter and banana sandwiches.
