Her GUILT for slandering Elvis' beloved mother... and making Elvis turn in his resting place....is showing is all. On occassion perhaps she actually has a conscience.

Gladys was an alcoholic, obese,
woman, who couldn't let go,
even when her son was a man.
Elvis, in his later years was also
obese and addicted to powerful,
lethal, prescription narcotics.
Traits passed on to him,
by dear old Gladys.

If you gonna post something Doris find out the facts first little bit here about Glady

On December 20, 1957, Presley received his draft notice. Hal Wallis and Paramount Pictures had already spent $350,000 on the film King Creole, and did not want to suspend or cancel the project. The Memphis Draft Board granted Presley a deferment to finish it. On March 24, 1958, he was inducted and completed basic training at Fort Hood, Texas, before being posted to Friedberg, Germany with the 3rd Armored Division.[80]

Presley had chosen not to join 'Special Services', which would have allowed him to avoid certain duties and maintain his public profile.[81] He continued to receive massive media coverage, with much speculation echoing Presley's own concerns about his enforced absence damaging his career. However, early in 1958, RCA producer Steve Sholes and Hill and Range "song searcher" Freddy Bienstock had both pushed for recording sessions and strong song material, the aim being to release regular hit singles during Presley's two-year hiatus.[82] The hit singles—and six albums—duly followed during that period.

In Germany, "[a] sergeant had introduced [Presley] to amphetamines when they were on maneuvers at Grafenwöhr... it seemed like half the guys in the company were taking them." Friends around Presley also began taking them, "if only to keep up with Elvis, who was practically evangelical about their benefits."[83]

The army also introduced Presley to karate—something which he studied seriously, even including it in his later live performances.[84]l

As Presley's fame grew, his mother continued to drink excessively and began to gain weight. She had wanted her son to succeed, "but...[the] hysteria of the crowd frightened her."[85] Doctors had diagnosed hepatitis and her condition worsened. Presley was granted emergency leave to visit her in August 1958, but shortly afterwards his mother died, aged forty-six. Presley was distraught, "grieving almost constantly" for days.[86]

Presley returned to the U.S. on March 2, 1960, and was honorably discharged with the rank of sergeant on March 5.[87] Recording sessions in March and April yielded some of his best-selling songs—including "It's Now or Never". Although some tracks were uptempo, none could be described as "rock and roll". Most found their way on to an album—Elvis is Back!—described by one critic as "a triumph on every level... It was as if Elvis had... broken down the barriers of genre and prejudice to express everything he heard in all the kinds of music he loved".[88] The album was also notable because of Homer Boots Randolph's acclaimed saxophone solo during the blues standard "Reconsider Baby

The only things that are "facts" here Becky are the dates, names of albums, etc. We know that the author ALLEGES that Elvis was "evangelistic" about the drugs, and that Gladys was overdrinking, but we do NOT know that those are facts.

Gladys Presley was OVERDRINKING!!!!
So is that what you call drunks these days,
while they are rolling in their own vomit
and dying for alcohol induced liver disease.

They were OVERDRINKING, says Lee!

Boy, you've really gone over the moon,

Gladys was a fat, drunk, an alcoholic!!!

That is what she was!!!

How am I degrading the long deceased Gladys Presley,
she abused herself, she drank herself into her
coffin.

I didn't do that.

Steve,

you have an awful funny
way of viewing the world.

You and others, would like to pretty things up,
and pretend that things are not the way they were.

Gladys was uneducated, superstitious,
jealous of those around her son.

She treated her son, like her a platonic
husband.

It was Gladys and Elvis and Vernon was the
third wheel.

I didn't do any of that.

I love Elvis Presley, to me, he never died.
He lives on through the music, he brought to
the world, in his own special style.

I listen to Elvis everyday of my life,
he helps me through everything.

I like to know what created this unique
individual, so I look at ALL aspects of his life.

And I don't flinch or pass judgement on
any of it, I just share it.

Some of you may like it others reject it
and feel that it is not important or
that if it those things are true,
they should remain hidden.

I don't happen to agree with that point of view.

Elvis was Elvis.

I want to know about his childhood,
family background, under the circumstances,
conditions that he was raised.

I want to know all about his parents,
relationships with other people, before
and after he became an international icon.

Everyone has free will and can read what I post
or ignore it, as they wish.

I don't force anyone to read anything they
don't want to.

But I do want to know what made Elvis,
how was he fashioned, down to the time he was
a fetus in the womb of Gladys Presley.

Now I know your one crazy lady, how do you think Elvis was made through the immaculate conception? He was made the same way everyone else was or didn't the hospital give sex education where you lived!

First of all, you are not SHARING anything with most of us Doris. We read and heard this stuff years ago, when it first came out. And you will not find the truth in the crap you have been reading. If you want to know the truth, go back and read the things that were written about Elvis before he died, and before the bodyguards were out to seek revenge on him.

Us not reading your posts will not do any good. It is the fact that people who don't know better read the crap you read and repeat here and think it is the truth. You are helping the bodyguards to spread filth and lies about Elvis because you read stories that originated with them and post them here as if they were true.

You sound like a half way intelligent lady. But you continue to say that some of us deny the truth. Yet you have no way of knowing that the stuff you are reading and repeating is EVEN TRUE.

What difference does it make that Gladys was uneducated? In those days it was considered perfectly alright for even a man to just work at the corner gas station all his life. Because in those days, rents were low, and you could feed your wife and kids on that. It was not considered necessary in the south for a man to go to college, as long as he was willing to work. It was considered fine for a woman to stay home and just take care of the kids. The only thing that matters about Gladys is that she was a good and loving mother to Elvis. We do not know that the stories about alcoholism were true. She was first reported to have died of INFECTIOUS hepatitis. That is not caused by drinking.

Doris, you don't know Shi- about Elvis you are just reading and repeating what the MM have promoted and you are helping them promote it.

In doing so, you are doing a great wrong to Elvis.
