Meet T Wierson: Elvira Shares First Photo of Girlfriend of 19 Years
Cassandra Peterson as Elvira
This week, Cassandra Peterson - best known as her alter ego Elvira, Mistress of the Dark - used her new memoir, Yours Cruelly, Elvira, to open up to the world about her long-term relationship with Teresa "T" Wierson.
As Peterson relates, the couple met at Hollywood Gold’s Gym, where horror icon Wierson admired from a distance. “Often times when I was doing my pre-workout warm-up on the treadmill, I couldn't help but notice that one particular trainer - brown, tattooed, and muscular - stumbled across the gym floor, knitted hat so low over his long brown hair pulled that it almost covered his eyes, “she writes in the book. "Dark and brooding, he radiated such intense energy that the water parted and people paused to stare as he crossed the huge gym floor."
In her memoir, Peterson describes Wierson as the typical "sexy bad boy" and says that her heart beat faster and that secretly watching her from the treadmill was a great pastime. It wasn't until they met in the ladies room that Peterson realized that her crush at the gym wasn't a bad boy. “As a former bodybuilder, track runner and cyclist, she was an incredibly cute person despite her tough appearance,” she writes. The two experienced an instant bond and had fun together as they exercised three times a week for the next six years.

That friendship began to change, however, when Wierson showed up at Paterson's front door on a suitably dark and stormy night looking for shelter. Both were fresh out of the relationship and supported each other during this difficult time. "Having her with you was a huge relief," writes Peterson. “T was like a big kid, and she turned out to be the best babysitter anyone could ask for. We all spent the evenings laughing, cooking, singing, and dancing in the kitchen while she helped me prepare dinner. The black cloud that had hung over our house for so long felt like it had finally cleared. I started to feel happier than in years and I could tell that my child felt the same way. "
One night after the two of them made a movie together, something suddenly changed for Peterson. “I said goodnight to her and suddenly felt compelled to kiss her - on the mouth. As shocked as she was, I think I was even more surprised. What the fuck did i do? I was never interested in women other than friends. "
Confusion aside, the chemistry between them was undeniable, and the two have been together, albeit secretly, for nearly two decades. "I've never had a long-term relationship where my partner has treated me with so much love and respect, is always there for me, loves me for who I am, and doesn't try to change me," Peterson says in hers A book. "For the first time in my life, I am with someone I feel safe, blessed and truly loved."
The only reason she hasn't commented on the relationship earlier, Peterson explains, is because she feared the impact it would have on her career. As it turned out, she had nothing to fear. When the news broke earlier this week, the Internet sighed a (rare) collective "good for her".
Your cruel, Elvira is out now.
