Was this Woman Elvis' Girlfriend?

Posted on Sun, Jul 8, 2007 at 4:00 AM

Who the heck is Tura Satana and why is she saying these things about Elvis?

We thought we knew pretty everything there was to know about the King of Rock-and-Roll. Book after book has detailed his Tupelo upbringing, his rise to stardom, his "Memphis Mafia" pals, and his downward spiral.

But then we stumbled upon the website, which provides a bit more information about — well, just about anybody. And if you find the page devoted to Elvis Presley ("a pill-popping mama's boy hillbilly"), you'll see that it lists his albums, his movies, and — much to our surprise, links to his girlfriends and even "people he has slept with" (the folks at nndb make a polite distinction between the two).

And among the King's girlfriends is Tura Satana ("according to her"), described as "a former allied internment camp inmate" and star of such cult classics as The Astro-Zombies (1969) and The Doll Squad (1973). She even has her own website, and if you want to know more about an Elvis girlfriend you (and we bet quite a few others) have never heard of, go here. It’s worth the visit.
