Elvira actress releases book

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- When Cassandra Peterson was five, she christened herself "Queen of Halloween." When she was 30, she gave herself a new title - "Elvira, Mistress of the Dark." That character changed her life.

Now some 35 years later, Peterson is out with what Elvira might call a "coffin table" book, which features 300 handpicked photos plus anecdotes and memories from playing the seductive, funny icon of the night.

"She's my baby. I own her and make my living off of her, so I have to treat her good," she said.

She was on RuPaul's podcast recently and talked about it. She's really a fascinating woman. Supposedly she's working on her memoirs.

Elvira Mistress of the Dark is a guilty pleasure - and a classic!

We long to hear every detail of her torrid affair with Playgirl and Colt model supreme, Bill Cable, with whom she posed nude in Playgirl!

Love her. R4 Me too! Bill Cable was one of the hottest men ever. They were so broke at one point they lived in a tree house. They remained friends after breaking up and she spoke at his funeral.

A truly sexy slut

It should be a pop-up book.

She's aged very well too. She's been able to keep both her face and ass so far.

Stupendous tits

She was a groupie, wasn't she? I remember her doing an interview with Pamela Des Barres (she likes to interview other groupies so they can talk about sexual encounters with rock stars that happened 30 or 40 years ago) where she talked about Jimi Hendrix inviting her up to his room. I can't remember if she went or not.

Bitch stole my look!

Playgirl magazine. March, 1975.

This is the first "porn" I ever saw. It was a fantasy scene with Cassandra Peterson and Paul Barresi. It made me realize I liked dicks because given the choice between looking at Peterson's tits and pussy and Barresi's cock, I wanted to stare at Barresi's cock and balls!!

The two of them.

I LOVED staring at his dick!!!

Oh, btw, I was only 10 years old, too.

I used to love the bit with The Shiny Obscene Phone Caller who would call on her show, she really made me laugh!

"Hello Elvirus?!"

R9 Yes, she's been open about being a groupie when she was young. She lost her virginity to Tom Jones, and she got tore up so bad she had to go get stiches afterwards.

"...she got tore up so bad she had to go get stiches afterwards."

If only I had a nickel for every time this has happened to me...

I always wondered about grade D actresses such as her and Julie Brown. I guess Cassandra Peterson was smart to have retained the merchandising rights to the Elvira character. Still, they both seem to live of CDs and crap sold off of their own websites.

R19 Cassandra is very savvy. She licenses out her Elvira name and likeness on all sorts of things. She was even on a pinball machine at one time. She also know how to keep her name out there. She did "The Search for the Next Elvira" and does the conventions where you can stay visible and make money.

I thought she was hysterically funny when I was a kid.

Philly had their own version of Elvira named "Stella, that maneater from Manayunk. " The poor thing couldn't hold a candle to Elvira, but that's Philly for you.

She looks like a cutie though R22.

she's a sweetie

She has a new slot machine coming to casino floors very soon. This might be her third. The licensing fees for those things are absolutely insane, so she'll be fine financially for a few more years.

R25 I liked Zak early in his career, but lost interest pretty quickly. He seemed to have very big fanbase when he was active however.

Whoops, wrong thread!

by Anonymousreply 2710/20/2016

R22, I just googled her and found the Wikipedia article on "Saturday Night Dead," the late night horror movie show she hosted. The article reads like it was written by Stella herself -- not exactly encyclopedic, but since I'm probably the first person to click on it in five years, it's not exactly being vetted carefully.

She IS the slot machine.
