Peterson claims Chamberlain assaulted her during a house party in the '70s -- and says stepping into Elvira's shoes shortly after was actually like armor for her.

Peterson told TooFab there was a sense of catharsis that came with writing this specific chapter in her book, titled,"You'll Never Work In This Town Again." Since we spoke with her before the book was released and the reveal was made public, she was still concerned about the backlash she could receive once the memoir drops.

"I had never told anybody, almost no one in the world knows about that, my family doesn't know. Nobody knows," she said."So that was the first and it was very hard to write about it, and I'm still, I'm still worried about backlash."

"There are other celebrities have done this kind of thing and guess who gets blamed? The girl," she continued."I mean look atour justice system right now and Brett Kavanaugh, what happened to the woman that he did that to? Where's she? What happened with her? He's, you know, on the court. I'm sure she gets nothing but death threats and threats on her family and all names and it's like, hello, she was the headtopics.com

victim!"The instances of assault in her book happened before Peterson found fame as Elvira in the early '80s and, according to her, stepping into the character's sexy goth getup and famous black 'do was actually like armor for her."It's funny, when I finally got started becoming Elvira and when I would show up as Elvira, nobody screwed with Elvira. I mean, nobody," she told TooFab."I could be around a whole gang of bikers and when they'd come up to my table to get an autograph or something, they'd turn into little whimpering little girls."
