She said at first they were just friends but things suddenly changed. Cassandra admitted that she kissed T first! She said, “I did! She would have never ever tried to kiss me, I know she wouldn’t. Because she’s just too proper and decent and all the things I’m not!”

Cassandra also opened up about her Halloween persona, Elvira, and how she was nervous to come out to fans. She worried that she would receive a lot of backlash for openly dating a woman. However, she said she has been pleasantly surprised by the fan’s reactions!
When she shared her relationship online, she said, “7,000 people unfollowed me, but I got 60,000 new followers, so, that was like, oh, this is so great. It turns out good, even if it’s really, really hard. It really feels good to get those secrets out of the closet, so to speak…out of the coffin, I like to say!”
It is great to hear that Cassandra is doing so well these days and is in a happy relationship! We can’t wait to watch all of her Elvira specials on Halloween!
