Yeah Casanda is sharing Executive producer duties with Eric Gardner(II), and backed by Freemantle Media North America.  Gardener was Executive Producer for Elvira's TV show back in the day.  Despite the somewhat sparse plot summary, I don't think that Casandra is ready to put up the slinky black gown and beehive wig just yet.  I have a sneaking suspicion that this will be like Discovery channels' "King of the Wild" where they award the winner with a contract and an Elvira-type show...

Oh God, from the sound of it it seems like another lame and stupid reality TV show... which is kind of an oxymoron anyway.

Are there any other kind?  Then again being a fan of Elvira, I'd probably tune in anyway...

Okay,  I was just on e*bay and checking out some Elvira merchandise.  There was a lot of video tapes from her TV show.  Hardly saw more than a couple of them, being on the east coast and all.  Anyway, I was shocked to see that of the 5 tapes, one was her own feature film, the others were all films that had been riffed on MST3K. 'The Brain That Wouldn't Die', 'The Giant Gila Monster', 'Eegah', and the final tape was a double feature with both 'The Brain That Wouldn't Die' and 'The Crawling Hand'...  I also went to IMDB an found a listing of only 11 episodes out of an entire 3 season run.  In any case she also did 'Village of the Giants'. I know she did a lot more than what even they have listed.  I remember one of the few that ran briefly on one of our local stations was called 'Frankenstein Conquers the World'.  I think Casandra could also be a strong candidate as a possible future guest riffer. I'm going to post this in Suggest-A-Trax as well........

I would so enter this contest.  I would love to be the queen of cheesy B-horror movies and I have the err...chops for it too.

Point me to the bustier and cheesy set boys!  I just wanna know where to send the tape!

She has a myspace page: http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=45962099

I didn't see any info on the project though.  I'm serious, I'd send in a video.  Generally I laugh at people who do that, but this would be a dream gig.  One place says contestants will have to sleep in coffins and such.  I hate to tell all the pansies who would go against me but I went through a psycho, satanic, death and dismemberment, goth phase.  I mean, heck, I once spent a night in a cemetery with a hand carved Ouija board to summon the spirit of my best friend's dead father.   Sleeping in a coffin is no bigs.

Now, eating weird things, I'm not about.  I think any true goth diva mistress has to draw her limits.  I'd just distract people with my cleavage and pretend I ate the bug.

    There's some much more recent DVD releases of double features from Elvira's Movie Macabre, put out by Shout Factory:  The Doomsday Machine/The Werewolf of Washington; Count Dracula's Great Love/Frankenstein's Castle of Freaks; and Legacy of Blood/The Devil's Wedding Night.   You're also given the choice of watching the movie straight through or with Elvira's commercial break comments.   The Doomsday Machine is particularly god-awful.

Seriously have you tried Zicam swabs and chewable tabs, or Clod-Eeze lozenges/ they all contain Zinc-glucosinate(sp?) It knocks out a cold in like 1/3 the time (I have used and been throughly satisfied for years)

You're not going to guilt me into posting photos Sarcasm.  Even though it almost feels like that song from Grease 2, "Do it for your country." 

Only kidding, I know that's not your intent and, in case you didn't know, there's better looking chicks who are completely naked on the web.  You know, just FYI.  I don't think everyone is aware of Internet porn and all...it's so well hidden.  My personal favorite of such sites is pandorapeaks.com!

BTW: Elvira just blogged:
As for the good news... I FINALLY SOLD MY SHOW to the Fox Reality Network!!! I've been busy as a bee, prepping for it, and we are scheduled to start filming it this spring/summer. So for all of you who've asked about auditioning for it - keep your eyes glued here. I'll let you know the "when and where" as soon as the details are set!

Yeah truly that is not my intent, im just justifying my actions.  

And as to porn, im in an allied country and got to play by their rules, no porn no alcohol.  

Although i think the military wouldnt allow porn anyways.  not out here.  im certainly not implying it isnt here, just that its not allowed.  

Hell the saudis count sports illustrated swimsuit edition as porn, so i can thank my stars i aint there.
