She co-hosted “Those Amazing Animals” in 1980, then three years later made her acting debut in “The Fall Guy.” She landed the role of Jenna Wade the following year.
While starring in “Dallas,” she authored the best selling memoir “Elvis and Me” (1985) and produced the TV movie based on her book in 1988.
More recently, Priscilla competed on “Dancing with the Stars" in 2008.
“The hardest thing I've ever done,” she said. “I've never performed live on stage, let alone in front of 23 million people. It was a horrifying feeling. Now I understand what stage fright means...I'd wake up at 2 am trying to remember a certain step and have a brain freeze.”
Although she's spent her entire adult life in the spotlight, she said that the public doesn't know the real Priscilla.
“I'm extemely private so I don't think people really know who I am,” she said in an interview with www.backinmemphis.com. “Sometimes when I see photos of myself in the media I look so reserved, almost unapproachable and aloof. I think it's a protective mechanism one acquires.
“I think they'd find it surprising that I can be a lot of fun and I have a really good sense of humor,” she said. “I have a close-knit group of gal pals who grew up with me that I like having over for dinner. We laugh, we watch movies, we come up with fun games to play.”
