Elvis Presley once invited Raquel Welch “someplace that I decided not to go,” she told Oprah Winfrey today. “I just didn’t want to be another notch in his gun.” That response came after Winfrey asked if Presley ever tried to seduce Welch. In her memoir, “Beyond the Cleavage,” Welch writes that “sex is overrated and constantly hyped far beyond what it can deliver. If you’re lucky, it occurs with some regularity, but it’s not the whole enchilada.”
In an interview, Welch told Winfrey: “Sex is great, of course. But sex, to me, is an expression of the relationship and the feelings that you have for somebody else.” Welch said we’ve become a culture of “sexhibitionists,” with everyone from porn stars to children sexualized. “This is kind of crazy,” Welch said. “We’re sort of programming this kind of an attitude toward life, when it’s really all about developing your whole self.
Raquel Welch is 69, and it’s just a number for the sex symbol. She will visit “The Oprah Winfrey Show” on Monday and talk about men she has known Richard Burton, Dean Martin, Elvis Presley.Clips show Winfrey asking just how close Elvis and Raquel were. “Do you feel as good as you look?” Winfrey also asks.
