‘Elvira’ Cassandra Peterson Reveals Secret Same-Sex Relationship of 19 Years
Cassandra Peterson, who plays Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, has revealed that she has been in a covert relationship with another lady for the past 19 years. Elvira reveals her hidden love story in her new biography, Yours Cruelly, which was released on Tuesday.
In her memoir, the American actress said,” she met her significant other in the same way most people do: at the gym.” In Yours Cruelly, Peterson writes, “Often, when I was doing my pre-workout warm-up on the treadmill, I couldn’t help noticing one particular trainer — tan, tattooed, and muscular — stalking across the gym floor, knit cap pulled so low over his long brown hair that it nearly covered his eyes.”
The beautiful writer added, “Dark and brooding, he gave off such intense energy that when he crossed the enormous gym floor, the waters parted, and people stopped in their tracks to stare.” She continued, “What she left out in the passage was the “he” she’s referring to is actually a woman trainer who goes by the name Teresa “T” Wierson.”
After her 25-year marriage to Mark Pierson ended, the two instantly became acquaintances, and things quickly heated up for the couple. She wrote, “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.” Cassandra added, “The two moved in together, which is when the Mistress Of The Dark made a surprising move. “I think I was even more surprised,”
The King of the Mountain star said, “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. I soon discovered that we connected sexually in a way I’d never experienced.”
Since hearing the news, Elvira fans have been unable to contain their joy. “Elvira has a butch wife who is her personal trainer,” one Twitter user commented, “climbing the stormy hellscape of 2021 like Jesus quietly going across the sea.” “Today I am truly blessed knowing that Queer Goths x Queer Jocks exists, and may we all be so fortunate.” Another user said, “Thank you to my favorite goth symbol Elvira for brightening my timeline today.“
