Priscilla Presley, mother of Michael Jackson's first ex-wife, Lisa Marie Presley, made an appearance on Larry King Live last night. King asked her if Michael's death hit her particularly hard. Instead of speaking about how it affected her, she deflected the issue onto Lisa, saying:
KING: Did the Michael Jackson--that whole thing hit you hard?
PRESLEY: I know it hit Lisa very hard.
KING: It did?
PRESLEY: It did. It hit her very hard.
KING: They remained friends?
PRESLEY: Yes, they did. They remained friends.
It is interesting to note she claims they remained friends; according to Lisa Marie's own blog post after Michael's passing, they had not seen or spoken to one another in years. Insiders say Michael broke contact with her for good following a scathing appearance by Priscilla and Lisa Marie on Oprah and numerous other unflattering interviews given by Lisa in the years after their breakup.
