GINGER ALDEN IS SELLING HER ELVIS COLLECTION. ONE ITEM FOR SALE IS A HALF SMOKED CIGAR BY ELVIS. SHE MUST BE REALLY HARD UP FOR A BUCK.

Well, I have never heard her knock Elvis and she did say that she was bitter because the others had told lies about him....but if she cared, why doesnt she be specific, and confront them on the issues?

I can't believe she saved something like a cigar all this time. She probably didn't save anything at the time, so she just came up with this to have something to sell. Probably her boyfriend's.

SOME FANS THINK SHE WAS THINKING AHEAD AND STOLE THINGS FROM GRACELAND...ANOTHER ITEM FOR SALE IS ONE OF ELVIS' PYJAMA TOPS...WHY WOULD ANYONE KEEP A HALF SMOKEN CIGAR FOR THIS LONG?

IMO
I would never sell anything from anyone that had been special to my HEART...especially someone as wonderful as Elvis Presley. I would pass the items on to my family members when I passed to remember me and my special life by.

Tacky Tacky Tacky and only reinforces what a lot of folks have always thought.

I wouldn't mind them selling stuff, if when they spoke of him, they spoke of him with respect.

Is there such a word as "smoken"?
Well, I knew an Elvis fan who had kept a banana peeling Elvis ate from since 1957!
But I don't think Ginger would have kept a half "smoken" cigar for that long. It's probably fake. If she was going to keep stuff, why not something nicer than an old cigar butt?
Like a banana peel. Or a glass he drank from.

WHAT ARE YOU THE SPELLING POLICE? I PROBABLY SHOULD HAVE SAID "SMOKED" IS THAT BETTER? YOU KNEW WHAT I MEANT ANYWAY.

Well, I'm always saying "handsomest". They say that's not a real word either.

That is my feeling on it, too.
It seems sort of sad that he loved her enough to give those things to her, but she doesn't love the memory of him enough to cherish the gifts he gave from his heart.:(

I AGREE IF SHE TRULY LOVED ELVIS AND WAS GOING TO MARRY HIM SHE SHOULD HAVE KEPT THEM IN LOVING MEMORY OF HIM.

"And Presley's then-girlfriend Ginger Alden told the story of her last night with Elvis, when she awoke at 2 p.m. to find Elvis sprawled -- apparently lifeless -- on the bathroom floor.

"She wanted money -- of course," writes Calder,

"but she was willing to give us her exclusive story."

But do you notice that her story contradicts the more humiliating stories later told by Joe and some of the MM about the position Elvis was found in? I think they lied to make the story worse.

Yes EP4LYF....she did an interview very soon after the death with the National Inquirer. Some say she called the Inguirer herself the day Elvis died, but I don't believe that is something that was ever proven... though Dick Grob a member of the MM security team tried in his book "The Elvis Conspiracy".

Yes, the embellishments and changes in stories have not gone unnoticed by most diehard fans.

DO YOU KNOW IF THE INTERVIEW IS POSTED ON THE WEB ANYWHERE? I HAVE HEARD SHE HAD HER HAIR AND MAKEUP DONE BEFORE SHE RAISED THE ALARM.

IMO
I have not actually searched for it EP4LYF since I lived though the times. ;) I might try to find it later tonight when my patient (mom) goes to sleep and I have more time. Yes, it is said that Ginger was "fixed up" but she says she always slept in her makeup to look good all the time for Elvis....so not sure what is truth?
