Over the last few months Minnie Mae had known that Elisabeth Stefaniak had been ignored by Elvis romantically and he was now infatuated with Priscilla. She thought it would be better to set up Elisabeth with someone and Elvis' army buddy Rex Mansfield who was a regular at the house came to mind. Enter Rod Harris, who was the mechanic for Elvis' jeep and he became a friend of Elvis outside of army life. His wife Vee through visiting had befriended Elisabeth and helped with the fan mail. She learned of Elisabeth's frustrations and offered to help. Careful not to upset Elvis, Rex and Elisabeth would secretly meet up at the Harris household twice a week.
