What Wink Martindale's Wife Told Him About Kissing Elvis

Wink Martindale and Elvis Presley had a unique relationship, to say the least. Martindale — who has been a DJ and game show host for the past 50 years — maintained a close friendship with Presley until the singer's death, and his wife, Sandy, dated Presley for six years before marrying Martindale.

Martindale stopped by HuffPost Live on Thursday and almost answered the question without host Nancy Redd even having to ask: did his wife think Elvis was a good kisser?

"[Sandy] has the stock answer for that: 'Elvis was the best kisser, but Wink is the best husband,'" Martindale said with a laugh. "And I will accept that."
