Blog Press Release Press Release from:

Elliott Otto
Elvis Presley is likely turning over in his grave from the shockwaves that are about to be felt by the release of a new jaw dropping book. On the 30th Anniversary of his death, Elvis’ personal footbutler has decided to take the foot out of his mouth and tell the world his story in the book Hunka Hunka Burning Feet: The Footastic Story of Wilsie Butters, the Footbutler of Elvis Presley. Wilsie Butters was hired to be a footbutler by Elvis in the mid 1960’s and continued working with the Elvis estate until 2007. The book chronicles his life with Elvis from his hiring to his death and the

Elvis - refused to have his feet photographed
subsequent relationship with Priscilla and Lisa Marie.

Butters broke his silence to the What The? Morning Show on CFUV 101.9 FM in Victoria, Canada. “I know stories that will make your toes curl.” Butters told host Craig Richardson, “I held Elvis’ feet when he died. The King valued me so much he put in his Will that I was to stay with the estate forever.” When asked if this book was revenge because he was fired for allegedly putting steroids on Lisa Marie’s feet, Butter’s responded, “Definitely. When I was terminated it voided the confidentiality clause I signed with Elvis. This book will kick Lisa-Marie in the Dutes – if she had any”

Butters was not formally trained as a footbutler as he spent two years as the drummer for Elvis’ band. Elvis was known to have foot problems, and one day before a show in Dallas, Butters noticed Elvis was having trouble walking. He offered his assistance as his mother was a foot masseuse. After half an hour of massaging, lancing a boil and some Chinese toe physiotherapy, Elvis got on stage and performed the show of a lifetime. Butters claims that “After the show Elvis came up to me and said, ‘You are my footbutler’ but I am the drummer, ‘Your drumming days are over boy, you are my footbutler’ It was at that point I gave up my life to a higher calling – Elvis’ Feet. I have not regretted it one bit.”

Although he developed a “close” relationship with Priscilla, he originally told Elvis to stop the relationship because her feet stunk. “They were like a pair rotten mustard covered halibut. It took years of diet and therapy before they were acceptable to the King” Butters had numerous encounters with celebrities although he only remembers them by their feet. “Elvis told me to look him in the feet not the eye because I was paid as a footbutler not an eye butler.” The most frightening experience he had was with O.J. Simpson. “He was jealous that I was looking at his girlfriend’s feet and told me to stare at her breasts because ‘that’s what I paid for’” While Butters searches for a publisher, he is planning to perform a dramatic reading from the book as part of an Elvis tribute show he is organizing with lounge singer Tommy Carson at Rick’s Lounge in Laughlin, Nevada on October 9th, the 34th anniversary of Elvis’ divorce from Priscilla.

Never even heard of this guy, didn't even know there was such a thing as a 'footbutler'?!!! Hmmm!

'Stinks' (sorry, in relation to feet! :lol: ) of the latest cash effort doesn't it?!


I feel the exact same way as you stated here dear Sue. :? Oh and this line right here is especially laughable to me: "Elvis told me to look him in the feet not the eye because I was paid as a footbutler not an eye butler.” :lol:

Are we really expected to believe that as polite and mannerly as Elvis was, that he would demand that someone "look him in the feet???????? :?: " especially considering how much eye contact meant to him whenever he was talking to someone??????? :roll:

Sweet Regina-Jewel, please forgive me. :oops: In my previous post, I forgot to thank you for posting this for us. :oops: I guess I just temporarily lost my head after trying to wrap it around this guy's shall we say less than credible claims??? :roll: :oops: In any case, I thank do thank you for posting it dear one. :D

Well, now maybe we h a v e heard it all? Or will soon?
I haven't heard about this guy either but Elvis did have ingrown toenails that hurt and he was subject to foot problems but remember he was a diabetec and though he didn't take shots for it that I am aware of more than a time or two, which doesn't mean that he didnt have to do more, but he said he wasn't on daily shots and as a younger man he didn't even know he had the problem at all. He was just feeling weak and worn out due to working so much he thought. Anyway, he had sore feet alot, his toes and he liked feet-maybe because he had to take care of his own so much and his mom had tiny feet he said, wore a size 6 1/2 shoe-that is small. Anyway I can't imagine this. And what Priscilla might say or do if this is something this guy is dreaming up? To say her feet stunk...and for Elvis to dump her over it-really? I can't see him taking that well! In the Army Elvis had blisters from the army boots etc; and he wore his own when he could and even got in trouble for it he said, as he was "out of uniform" but the army doctor spoke up for him and it was okay but he had to wear army boots after that-and special soft socks and inserts. He also said he had his boots and shoes made to fit his feet-with soft linings etc:...that is a footbutler isn't it? I know that in the South they had them to ride in carriages-they helped people down, they kept their legs and feet wrapped and warm and provided heated bricks for them to place their shod feet on for warmth in those cold carriages and winter weather. That is to my recollection what a "footbutler" did and was ? I may be wrong. I can't see Elvis talking that way to the guy who was helping him out-not at all. Or having him around when Pris was there-doesn't make much sense. Who is this person? Of course, rumor (mm dudes) claim Elvis didn't bathe too, and didn't change his clothes at home and looked like hell and smelled like he'd been staying in a house of "ill repute". They had more colorful languange. Of course he was also addicted to porn and etc: and had a vast libarary of such things-yeah...medical related books that belonged to the doctor whose libarary he bought years back. Those included some werid ones he said, things he didn't know and that wasn't sure he wanted to know, he was appaled at some of what he read and how "depraved" people, human beings could become because they went nuts. He put them where his little girl wouldnt get hold of any of them, he didn't want her knowing such things happened. So I don't hardly think he was hooked on that stuff either. But they must have sneaked up and looked with glee....wjh

I think this has to top the cake of anything we have heard. This has to be a joke, doesn't it? Parts of it I wanted to laugh because it was so absurd. What nonsense. I might have bought the foot butler thing but not after the other things like Priscilla and OJ.

I am just sitting here at work shaking my head. I am truly amazed.

Hate to think what else might come out of the wood work.

In our life time I don't think they will every leave him alone.

I think this may be someone's idea of a joke. I mean check out the name, "Wilsie Butters". If you sound spell it -- it comes out like "Will see butt -ers/hers". Of course, I could be wrong & be putting my foot in my mouth here, but it's my impression this blog was meant to be a joke.

Yeah, it must be somebodies idea of a "joke" or something. It has to be "for fun", good grief even. As Elvis would say, "Aww...well, I dun' know..."

Yeah, I bet they did! Anything the MM guys could twist or distort to their advantage, I'm sure they've done so!

AMEN, Wanda!
