On March 19th of this year, Elvis' good friend, Joe Esposito, lost his beloved wife, Martha, to an incurable disease called Neoplastic meningitis. Though considered incurable, understandably, Joe and his wife tried everything possible to try to cure the disease hoping for a miracle. Joe is seeking donations to help pay the medical costs.

I donated through Paypal even though I will not be able to attend. I just wanted to be a part of helping Joe, who I respect and view as one of Elvis' true friends. Below is the link to his official website and information:

On March, 19th Joe lost his beloved Martha after 30+ years of marriage. The family is holding an event to help defray the astronomical non-insured medical expenses to treat Martha’s disease. The Neoplastic meningitis she endured was non-curable, however, every medical treatment possible was researched.

Please join Joe and his friends as we celebrate Martha’s life….

Wasn't this the same wife that lent Priscilla her credit card so that she could cover up her affair with Mike Stone?

And this is the same Joe Esposito that went on TV and said that Elvis was dead with his pajamas pulled down to his knees and that he, Joe, pulled them back up.

Just like all the others, he finally resorted to saying degrading things about Elvis for money.

Good speed to hell bitch, and may Joe follow shortly.

Give them money??? Sure thing!!

And isn't this the guy who is supposed to be on the good side of Lisa and Priscilla???? Why aren't they helping??

And what's wrong with this guy that he does not even have that much money???? I think he has PLENTY of money but just thinks he can hit up stupid Elvis fans.

Yes. Mr. Esposito did describe the situation at the time of Elvis' death. So what! It doesn't make him hostile towards Elvis for speaking the truth, particularly when he does it in a delicate way and clearly not trying to degrade Elvis. Elvis was human just like the rest of us. Get over it!

Oh...Now I understand...It seems to me that you have mental issues. These types of comments are often stated by people who have mental issues, as they are unable to rationalize in a level-headed way and think in the extreme. These comments of yours are totally unwarranted, mean, and abusive.

This was not the same wife, that was Joe's first wife who was friends with Priscilla. Joe has been a loyal friend to Elvis. I'm sure he knows countless private stories that he has never revealed about things that occurred within the group.

While I'm not a fan of Mr. Esposito, I'm sorry to hear of his situation.

I, too, wonder why he has to fundraise to pay medical bills while Ms. Lisa Presley and Ms. Priscilla Beaulieu are sitting on millions from the Presley name.

After all his bowing and scraping to those two over the years, you'd think they would do the right thing and just pay the bill.

I have no doubt Mr. Presley would have immediately.

Gee! I didn't know that you have the inside scoop as far as whether Priscilla and Lisa Marie have contributed. Is there anything else you can tell us or are you just being presumptuous? And since when do either owe Mr. Esposito the favor of paying off his medical bills. Also, what little I have seen of Mr. E, he doesn't impress me as the type who walks around feeling sorry for himself and thinking that he is owed by the Presley estate or by Elvis Presley Enterprises, or anyone else for that matter. All this Priscilla and LM resentment and judgment is nonsense.

You stupid, revolting, fat slag.

The wife who died was Joe's second wife, not Joanie the first one.

Typical fat Lee - shooting off your fat, ugly mouth without having all the facts to hand.

I hope you get cancer and die painfully. It's the least you deserve.

And Elvis DID die with his PJs around his legs, BITCH!!!

No, but I would assume that if they WERE, they would be picking up the whole tab, he would not be asking Elvis fans for help.

The fact that you say you "don't care" if this woman helped Priscilla cover up her affair with Mike Stone shows that you don't care when people around Elvis were abusive to HIM.

The fact that I hate people who did horrible things to Elvis does not mean that I am crazy.

And yes, it was wrong for Joe to go on TV and say a thing like that. We don't know if it is true, but even if it was, he could love the man enough to allow him a little dignity in death.

IF that happened, the public would not have known about it if "loyal" employees would have given Elvis the dignity of KEEPING THEIR MOUTHS SHUT!!!!

Well, apparently they have not paid it, and for once, they are doing the right thing. I don't think they should pay it.

Natalie, you and Observer are sounding more and more like the same person.

When you first came on here, you were the shy, soft spoken little Natalie, who moped and cried if anyone scolded her. Now, it seems that you have asserted yourself by taking on the "Observer" identity, and still keeping the Natalie.

So all this time, the sweet Natalie was asserting her nasty side, by posting as "Observer" and probably "Presley fan", too.

You know what happens when you assume--Yes?! Maybe Joe was offered substantial help from the estate and/or EPE but turned it down. The bottom line is that we don't know the circumstances, yet in your zealousness to act like a big wheel, you shoot off your mouth thinking you know it all. Very bad...Very bad!

You talk in circles. First you post a request for donations. Then you get all offended when people wonder why the Presleys haven't paid the bill. Then you say maybe the Presleys contributed. Then you say maybe he refused the Presleys contribution.

Common sense dictates "you know the circumstances" before making a charitable contribution. Very sad...Very sad. Sheesh!
