What did Cassandra Peterson reveal in her memoir?
Yours Cruelly Elvira Memoirs Of The Mistress of Dark, published September 20, 2021, reveals the full story of Cassandra Peterson, including intimate bombshells.
Peterson’s secret, nearly 20-year-old relationship with Teresa Wierson was one of those bombshells.
Peterson reveals in the book that she was in a relationship Teresa Wierson since meeting at Gold’s Gym, Hollywood.
“Often, when I was doing my preworkout 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,” Peterson wrote.
“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.”
Before her relationship with Wierson she was married from 1981 to 2003 to Mark Pierson, a producer.
Entertainment Weekly reported that Wierson ended up on Peterson’s doorstep after breaking up with her then-parter because she had “no place to go.”
Peterson went on to write that their relationship changed after going to a movie one night.
“I told her goodnight and suddenly felt compelled to kiss her — on the mouth.
“I think I was even more surprised,” Peterson wrote. “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.”
Peterson has publicly come out and described her sexuality as fluid and told The Orange County Register that she is still attracted to men.
