Actress Cassandra Peterson was recently interviewed by Oprah Winfrey on her show "Oprah: Where Are They Now?" and she revealed some very interesting information to her fans about her becoming a horror show fantasy legend.

In what was shocking news to some of her fans, especially those who frequent social media, she disclosed that before she become the '80s horror show hostess Elvira she was a Las Vegas showgirl who was working as a topless dancer. It was during this time she met one of her idols, Elvis Presley, and they went out on a date and eventually have a very short relationship. 
The date was great but the advice the legendary music entertainer provided her was even better as he told her that Las Vegas was not a town she needed to be in and that she did not want to stay there. What is so interesting about this advice is that she said that if anyone else had said the same to her she probably would not have listened but because it came from her she did.

This advice led to her moving to Los Angeles and auditioning for the role of Elvira. Her making this move turned her into an entertainment horror show legend as many men will attest that it was her gorgeous looks as the enticing yet mysterious and scary Elvira that made them fans of horror shows and created her career. 
She has at times played some other roles and recently has appeared in projects such as "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" as the voice of Ms. Campbell and acted in the comedy "First Period" so her career is still ongoing but she will likely always be known affectionately as the gorgeous Elvira, a role that fans can attribute in part to the advice of Elvis Presley and for which many men are very grateful.
