Elvira, otherwise known as Cassandra Peterson, is the author of the memoir Yours Cruelly, Elvira. Among the many intriguing stories in Cassandra’s memoir, the most exciting is information about her long-time romantic partner that was previously unheard.

Let me start by saying congratulations to our queen for coming out!
It is an accomplishment to be part of the LGBTQ+ community as the Mistress of the Dark.
Elvira the horror icon was said to have found love in a well-known Los Angeles.
Cassandra found Teresa at her doorstep; she was recently single as well. “There on the doorstep stood my trainer, T, holding a trash bag full of her belongings, looking sad and bedraggled. She’d split from her longtime partner, spent some time in rehab, and now had no place to go,” Peterson writes of her first meeting with her current partner.
The night became romantic when the two women decided to go to the movies for the first time. Peterson shared her initial anxiety about kissing Teresa for the first time.
“I think I was even more surprised. What the hell was I doing? I’d never been interested in women as anything other than friends. I felt so confused. This just wasn’t me! I was stunned that I’d been friends with her for so many years and never noticed our chemistry,” her memoir reads. “I soon discovered that we connected sexually in a way I’d never experienced.”
Their love was mutual. Their happiness seems unshakeable after 19 years. According to her, she’s never been happier. “For the first time in my life,” Elvira writes, “I’m with someone who makes me feel safe, blessed, and truly loved.”
Congratulations Cassandra Peterson!
