Priscilla Presley invites you into Graceland on "ET"

Jann Carl of "Entertainment Tonight" is doing a special interview of Priscilla Presley at the luscious Graceland in Memphis, Tenn. Presley's role as the third and final Jenna Wade on "Dallas" didn't come up in conversation, however; her role as Elvis Presley's former wife still very much defines her. The interview aired last night and continues on tonight's broadcast.

Looking good sporting straight, red hair, Presley reminisced about the family dinners and the family gatherings at the famous home of her former husband. Secretary of the Interior Gale Norton was also there, in an official capacity, to designate Graceland as a national landmark. Presley jokingly remembered the opening of the 14-acre estate to tours in 1982, when she wondered if anyone would come.

Presley and Carl walked through several areas of the home: the game room, Elvis' parents' bedroom and other rooms. Presley commented that the home feels like it did when Elvis was alive. "You walk in, and you feel like Elvis is still here," she said. "No matter where I look, I see him. This house is him. His spirit is here."

Catch the second part of the interview tonight; check local listings.
