RuPaul Catches Up With Elvira On 'RuPaul Drives'

RuPaul took a drive with Cassandra Peterson, otherwise known as Elvira, Mistress Of The Dark, this week and caught up with the star in the latest installment of his "RuPaul Drives" series.

The pair discussed Peterson's relationship with her daughter, the creation of Elvira as a character and, perhaps most interestingly of all, the ways in which Elvira's career and character parallels that of RuPaul.

"We're both drag queens," joked Peterson. "Except I don't have to tuck -- that's the only difference between me and drag queens."

While Peterson stated that she thinks about retiring Elvira as a character all of the time, her "voluptuous cross between a vampire and a 1980s Valley Girl" is still as relevant today as ever. Peterson even tells Ru that her Elvira costume remains the top-selling female Halloween costume of all time!

Check out the video above for an interesting insiders look into the dynamics of these old friends. Want to see more of the "RuPaul Drives" series? Check out these other installments featuring Sharon Needles, Chris Crocker and Kat Von D.
