Priscilla Presley is setting the record straight about her feelings for Patrick Duffy.

During a Q&A event at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut, on Saturday night, Presley, 78, addressed recent rumors she's read saying that she's in love with her former Dallas costar Duffy, 75.

"Now there’s this whole big thing out there that I love Patrick Duffy, and I’m reading this in a magazine that someone showed me yesterday," she said while speaking about her career after her 1972 divorce from rock icon Elvis Presley.

Priscilla said that a recent Dallas cast reunion at the Burbank Marriott Convention Center on March 1 was the catalyst of the rumor, because she was in attendance along with Duffy and his partner Linda Purl, who Priscilla said Duffy is "in love with."

"I hadn’t seen him in a long time, and it was a great reunion," she added of the recent cast event. "Patrick told me how happy he was, and we talked to the audience and they had questions for us and that’s it."
