Former Sixties starlet Suzanna Leigh, most famous for being Elvis’ leading lady in my fave Paradise, Hawaiian Style, is once again in the news. Click here to read the NY Daily News item where it is alledged that in 1989 Leigh took and never gave back a ring given to a model friend by Sharon Tate and auctioned it off recently. The woman, whom she alledgedily took it from, recently died and her son, with discovered proof, is fighting tooth and nail to get it back. Leigh claimed she was the rightful owner and denied stealing it.
Leigh has gotten a lot of bad press recently with her continued attempts to exploit her relationship with Elvis. A few years ago during Elvis week in Memphis, she tried to launch a rival convention to it featuring a number of his co-stars. The Night of a 1000 Stars was a bust and only about a dozen showed up.
