    Happy for Elvira!

    My love for Elvira goes back to my childhood (her tv jingle is playing in my head as I type). I’m happy to hear of her happiness.

      I wish her old shows — with the old horror movies — were in syndication. Such fun late-night watching!

      • The Recluse says:

        I have seen them very recently via Shout! TV. They have a website where they stream programs and they have a channel you can watch if you have an internet ready Samsung TV. It’s where I get to watch marathons of Mystery Science 3000 shows too every Monday. They ran an Elvira marathon either this past Friday or Saturday.

    I knew Elvira (well, Cassandra) years ago when I was a kid living on the west coast. Her niece, who she had a major hand in raising, and I were school mates and friends. Cassandra was legit the “cool mom” that we all wanted to hang out with. I remember when she divorced but had no idea she has been dating someone else. To be fair I haven’t seen her in like 15 years. Anyway, she’s a classy and cool lady and I’m happy for her.

    Good for her and her partner :).

    I miss her show, in the 80’s it was so much fun to see her have fun with films that ran from good to so bad.

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      That is a nice story to read. Loved watching Elvira. Happy to hear the happiness.

      Thought this was sweet & honest-

      “Would my fans hate me for not being what they expected me to be? 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.”

      She’s hosting a marathon on Shudder this Saturday the 25th… I can’t wait!!!

    I don’t know why anyone would pay any amount of money to see Clapton try to perform, especially when he has been so vocal about his decline. Like most people of his ilk, he’s a massive hypocrite and only cares about the almighty dollar. Oh, and he’s a racist piece of shit.

    All that aside… I love Cassandra/Elvira! 😀

    • Jaded says:

      I agree Valerie (BTW that’s my name too!) A good friend of Mr. Jaded’s is a musician and was in the opening band at a Clapton concert many years ago. He ran into Clapton backstage and told him how honored he was to be opening for him and Clapton told him to fuck off. Nice guy….

      • Valerie says:

        *waves to the other Valerie!*

        Doesn’t surprise me. He’s always been a cockwomble. My dad has been a fan of his for years, but I think he’s changed his mind about him in light of recent news. He didn’t know about any of it until I told him, and he got this pained look on his face when I told him about his latest song, lol. I was like, “Yeah, and if you think that’s bad, you should hear what he said about immigrants in 1976.”

      • Jaded says:

        Valerie, “cockwomble” is now my favorite insult word!

    Good for Elvira and her partner! If she felt uncomfortable coming out because of her fanbase’s expectations of her, I really can’t help but wonder how many other celebrities are in the closet. It’s sad to think about.

  7. Quincytoo says:

    I did her hair in Whistler once at a celebrity event
    Didn’t know who she was professionally
    She was so funny, sweet and just an over all great girl
    I’m happy for her

  8. bettyrose says:

    Just saw the funniest post/tweet that Elvira’s girlfriend exercised super human strength in not introducing herself as Elvira’s girlfriend for nearly 20 years.

  9. The Recluse says:

    Twitter was in delighted spasms of joy about Cassandra last night. People were so happy.

    As for Savannah, she’s a light weight in her field compared to Maddow. Maddow has even written important books during her off time.

  10. Isa says:

    Very happy that she is happy.

  11. Snazzy says:

    I hope that Texas doc gets all the money
