Hmm, I've always been curious about this chick:
What's her deal?
Seems like some screwed up ex-porn chick who thinks every night is Halloween... that, and she's been around like foreeeeeeeever.
Since it's October, she's obviously high in demand: everything from ESPN to Animal Planet is employing her for something. That, and she's apparently a millionairess made so by selling movies, dolls, clotheslines, even video games-- all revolving around her image.

that is Cassandra Peterson, AKA Elvira, Mistress of the Dark.
She "borrowed" the idea and schtick from Vampira and others and hosted various television movie shows as a presenter and made the rounds as a "spooky" personality. For a while she was a beer sponsor, and had a very tight costume that revealed her best assets.

I've been wondering what ever happened to her--and Wilson Phillips--and since the latter just released an album of covers I've answered that question. But Elvira is ancient at this point, I can't imagine she's still wearing those plunging neck lines these days....maybe just a lot of mock turtlenecks *cringe*.
RICHARD SIMMONS had a SHOW??? That ran for FOUR YEARS??

For someone close to 100 years old, she looks mighty fine.
She was on late night TV in the 80s and gave a really funny and tawdry running commentary on B-grade horror flicks. On crappy weekend nights in college when the weather stank, you got drunk, watched Elvira, smoked some pot and it all kinda made sense.

Never underestimate the power of Dr botox and Dr Silicone.

There's also the oft-repeated story that when Cassandra Peterson (aka "Elvira) was starting out in show business she was a Las Vegas showgirl. One night Tom Jones took a liking to her, asked her out...long story short, she ended up with um, "stitches" in a very private area.
