Lisa has seen the girls regularly since they went to live with Priscilla. Lisa played chauffeur for the day, driving daughter Riley around in her black Cadillac in a hooded caftan, fedora and aviators. Lisa has denied claims that she is once again involved in the Church. Riley and Priscilla are still both Scientologists however, a religion that once prompted Elvis to say: 'F*** those people. All they want is my money.'
