Elvira shares she's been in a 19-year relationship with a woman

That friendship turned romantic after Peterson and her husband split and Wierson -- fresh out of her own relationship and rehab with no place to go -- moved in with Peterson and her son.

After a night out, Peterson wrote, she felt compelled to kiss Wierson -- much to their surprise.
"I'd never been interested in women as anything other than friends. I felt so confused," Peterson wrote. "This just wasn't me! I was stunned that I'd been friends with her for so many years and never noticed our chemistry,."

Because her Elvira brand was so tied to being a sexy temptress for men, Peterson worried that going public with her relationship might damage her brand, writing "I'm very aware that there will be some who will be disappointed and maybe even angry, but I have to live with myself, and at this point in my life, I've got to be truthful about who I am."
"For the first time in my life I'm with someone who makes me feel safe, blessed, and truly loved," she wrote.

I'm surprised she was worried about potential damage to her brand. Is she not aware of the effect the idea of two women being together has on the average American male?



It is what it is.

Rick-o, no one will accuse you of being average. My reaction at the thought is pretty much the opposite of "puke"

Apparently her heart is on fire, for Elvira.

Yep, the old "If one is good, two is better!" thing frequently applies even if the guy isn't personally involved or even present.

In the bigger picture Elvira is a character, not an actual person, and is separate from the person portraying her. Aside from that, Elvira's long-standing rowdy, open, "Sure, why not?" attitude towards sex in general wouldn't seem to exclude fooling around with someone of the same gender if the mood struck and the right offer came along.

Good for her. But really, why does anyone care except for her and her partner?

I think the word you're looking for is "Elviral," Newt.

My old co-worker has been a fan of hers since maybe the 70s or so, and has met her a number of times, in costume, and her real look. She is actually a really nice woman. I'm glad she is happy.

Id like to say that in this day an age, most peeps are "meh, thats nice" to the whole coming out thing. As in its another everyday thing.

But then again, Utah. And the South. And Texas.

Apologies to the anonymous forum member affected by my previous sig pic. It was my personal pic of a country expressing great grief as their leader, one of the most recognized people in the world, lay on his deathbed 8 years ago, days before he died. Like a naif, I did not realize it was offensively political, I considered it an expression of deep emotion and a reminder of the mortal coil's nature; that we all, great and small, can only hope to make a difference in our short time here, no matter the personal cost.

I'll post another pic from my work in South Africa that is, hopefully, apolitical.

Quite beautiful if you ask me.






"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

An argument could be made either way, but the makeup was part of the "Elvira" character and not something Ms. Peterson indulged in on her own.

Yep, you'd never guess she's a natural redhead with an unpretentious and very attractive "girl next door" look to her when she's not in "Elvira" drag.

There's an interesting interview between Ms. Peterson and Ru Paul, both out of drag, on YouTube. I'd link to it but I'm computationally challenged at the moment and YouTube is currently off-limits to me.

Please let us reach the point soon where a person's orientation is not of interest to anyone besides those involved.

We will someday but I doubt in my lifetime. I do think we have progressed to a point where public knowledge of one’s orientation doesn’t always have the devastating consequences to career and/or life that it used to. I sometimes get the sense that some of you find these announcements unnecessary and tedious. I guess if you’ve never experienced the brunt of the oppression you don’t quite appreciate the positive effect of affirmation these stories give.

And for the record, i have no idea who Elvira is but apparently a lot of my facebook friends are thrilled.

Elvira, Mistress of the Dark started off as a revealingly-dressed local Friday Night horror movie host in Southern California in the 1980s. Not only did she present the films, she also made numerous mildly naughty puns and double-entendres while making fun of the general low quality and bad special effects therein... sort of a sexy, horror-themed version of Mystery Science Theatre 3000, but years before MST3K even began. She became so popular that her show was syndicated nationwide. She starred in a feature film that was a parody of bad horror movies which wasn't a success at release but has since gained a "cult" following. She also did a promotion for Bud Light beer that featured a life-size cardboard cutout of her that was highly collectible (read "frequently stolen") from the day it was released.

There's a great video of Elvira and Vincent Price together on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson on YouTube that tells you pretty much all you need to know about the character. Unfortunately I'm unable to provide a link at the moment.

Eyes that look like heaven, lips like sherry wine
That girl can sure enough make my little light shine
I get a funny feelin' up and down my spine
Cause I know that my Elvira's mine

So I'm singin'
Elvira, Elvira
My heart's on fire Elvira
Giddy up oom poppa omm poppa mow mow
Giddy up oom poppa omm poppa mow mow
Heigh-ho silver, away

Tonight I'm gonna meet her at the Hungry House Cafe
And I'm gonna give her all the love I can
She's gonna jump and holler 'cause I saved up my last two dollars
We're gonna search and find that preacher man

Now I'm a singin'
Elvira, Elvira
My heart's on fire Elvira
Giddy up oom poppa omm poppa mow mow
Giddy up oom poppa omm poppa mow mow
Heigh-ho silver, away




It is what it is.
