Elvis Presley’s fiancee, Ginger Alden is breaking her silence 37 years after the King of Rock and Roll passed away from this Earth. She’s now getting ready to release her memoirs and she has been giving interviews where she has revealed the inside story of what it means to the King’s woman.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, recently rediscovered photographs show Elvis’ love shack as only the hunka hunka burnin’ love could have it. Unfortunately, Elvis’ last words were not so sexy, since it is claimed he said, “I’m going to the bathroom to read.”
Ginger Alden was engaged to Elvis when he met his untimely demise back in 1977. She says the tabloids distorted the details of her romance with the King, and the new book “Elvis & Ginger” intends to set the record straight.
“I finally sat down and put my memoirs together,” Alden said. “It was a very, emotional, emotional journey.”
Ginger says she has been working on her memoirs shortly after Elvis died, but did not finish writing them until recently.
“Well, I wrote things down shortly after Elvis passed away. It was my way of holding on. I went forward with my life then. I worked, I had my son. But in the course of that time, there were a lot of speculations and hearsay and fabricated tales of our relationship and I knew it was going to take a lot of emotional time and energy to do this right. I waited until my son went away to college. He did that two years ago, so I finally sat down and put my memoirs together. It was a very emotional, emotional journey.”
Alden reveals that even though she was Elvis’ girlfriend, she felt uncomfortable just calling to have a conversation because “I thought he was a busy man and I don’t want to just pick up the phone.” Over time she became comfortable with his rock star status, but it still took some adjusting to. Ginger believes it was their spiritual beliefs and their love of Southern food that brought them together.
Before he passed away, Elvis had also discussed what he wanted to do with his future, and what his “bucket list” was per se.
“There were so many things he was looking forward to. He wanted to do a more serious film. There was a film called ‘The Mission’ that he told me about one evening and I actually went to his attic and he looked through a box quickly and he said there was a script of this film… Elvis was always searching why he was what he was and it kind of paralleled his life and what he was trying to do through his music to bring joy to others. He wanted to get married. He wanted to have more children. So did I. Many, many things. He wanted to play Europe.”
Elvis & Ginger was published earlier this month.
