Linda Thompson has had quite a life journey. The lyricist/songwriter and former beauty pageant winner is also known as Elvis Presley’s former girlfriend and being married to David Foster and Caitlyn Jenner. She’s the mom to Brody and Brandon Jenner. I had a chance to speak to Thompson at the Open Hearts Foundation Gala. She spoke to me about Elvis, meeting Jane Seymour for the first time and her sons Brandon and Brody.
I found Linda to be a very sweet woman. She was very engaging and open. I really had to ask her about Elvis. I mean who can you meet with such a close and direct relationship with the King! I knew Elvis was a twin, but didn’t know he had webbed toes! That’s an exclusive. Also figured that he dyed his hair, but didn’t know he was dirty blonde naturally.
Best compliment I could have gotten was hearing her say that my hair would have made Elvis proud. That made me happy, since I always attempt (unsuccessfully) to do my hair like he did.
Great story about how she initially meet Jane Seymour at the store years ago. That’s a long standing friendship to maintain. It’s great to see how close they are and Linda come out and support her friend’s foundation.
