A picture posted last year doesn't mean taken last year ;) by the way the link leads to... Rosemary's FB ) and the tribute show pictures the family never took ) now it's ok to watch them of course but I have mixed feelings about such tributes on a day like today.

Ginger was in a tough situation. I don't think she really wanted to be there but her family pushed her. She may have loved Elvis and was excited to be around him and the whole situation but I've read she also loved her boyfriend and still wanted to do things a 20 year old likes to do like hang out with friends her own age. I think Elvis knew this and drove himself crazy trying to win her over. There was a lady in our fan club in Denver who knew a couple of guys in the group and I remember her telling us that she heard that Ginger was "twisting" Elvis (her words). I don't fault her for any of it. She was only 20 and thrust into a world of middle age men who had already done all the things she was just wanting to do. She has handled herself very well in these years since his death.

It's very sad what you wrote, but maybe true. Like Peter Guralnick wrote in Careless Love: the relationship between Elvis and Ginger became a "One Sided Love Affair", quoting a song Elvis recorded in 1956. But after 36 years after Elvis died we, his fans, we'll never be in Elvis 'shoes. So it's clear that Ginger gave Elvis moments of hapiness in the last 9 month of his life so on this tragic day we maybe focus only on the good things of the past.

I always thought she and her family were opportunistic leeches in Elvis' life, it was obvious she didn't love him but yet she stayed ( by the encouragement of her family ) and drove the man more crazy, she had the right to not love him (i don't blame her for that) she was so younger than him but why stay if you loved someone else and wanted to live your youthful life!! for jewelry , money and more luxury life ! and of course Elvis was not in the right frame of mind at the time to obsess over an illusion .

I don't know too many 20-year-old women that would have been able to handle that situation. Bear in mind that Ginger was doomed from the start, when she was plopped into Linda's shoes and surrounded by people who yessed Elvis to death, while sniping behind his back about this "kid" he claimed to have fallen in love with.

Despite what happened between Elvis and Ginger, John is just saying for today of all day's be respectful. She has just as much right to mourn Elvis as anyone else, especially considering she was with him during perhaps his most difficult time in life!
That could be no easy task, especially someone at the age she was then. I found her post beautiful and spoken from the heart.

Money, was the prime motivation for Ginger's family to encourage her with the relationship.

Reading Ginger's Facebook message to Elvis on August 16 brought tears to my eyes. Very touching.

Yeah. She ran him ragged for the few months she was with him, and now her and her pushy sister are milking that period for all it's worth via the less intellectually gifted fans on Facebook.
Classy is not the immediate word that springs to mind.
There's a book available on pre-order. It's all about that. End of

Re: Ginger Alden Tribute on Facebook

Sure it's obviously about the book. Naive to think otherwise. As for her situation with Elvis in '77, I can see why she got involved, probably family interference and I am sure Elvis was persuasive even when he was blatantly no longer attractive physically. He was a legend.

But anyone blaming Ginger for Elvis' final demise etc is also naive. Elvis was a grown man who made his own decisions. He'd probably have been better off sorting himself out then finding the right woman. He didn't seem to be able to be alone, ever. Which is not a sign of someone who is comfortable with who they are. Shame as I feel had he lived longer and sorted out his problems, he'd have probably found a more mature woman who could add to his life in a deeper way than just being hot.

The less intellectually gifted fans buy books by anybody remotely associated with Elvis.

Hence, Gingerbread, Poundcake and their fans are a perfect match, and the book will get some attention, especially if they tie-in the 80th birthday anniversary.

80th birthday. God.
