For those unaware, Gael Greene is a famed and respected American restaurant critic.
As told in her 2006 memoir (via New York Magazine), Insatiable: Tales From a Life of Delicious Excess, Greene discusses the time she had sex with Elvis. She first met him in 1956, when she was 21.
After writing Elvis' manager, Colonel Parker, for an interview with the singer, Greene was invited to Elvis' press conference, she explains in her book. Eventually, she ended up at the Blue Hawaii actor's hotel room with a bunch of other people.
According to Greene, when Elvis showed up at the room, he grabbed her hand and took her to the bedroom. "Silently, he took my hand — yes, still gloved — and led me to a bedroom," she writes. "I was thinking, Oh my God... this is Elvis... I am going to do it with Elvis. I am not going to be coy. I will not make him talk me into it. He didn't ask. I didn't answer. He closed the door, dropped his pants, and lay on the bed — very pale, soft, young —watching me take off my clothes and, yes, at last, my little white gloves."
Greene, now 83, says she doesn't remember any details about the sex but that "it was certainly good enough." Apparently, after the sex was over, he said to her, "I need to sleep now." Oh, she says Elvis also asked her to call room service and order him a fried-egg sandwich. To that, she writes, "The fried-egg sandwich — that part I remember. At that moment, it might have been clear I was born to be a restaurant critic. I just didn’t know it yet."
