'Saturday Night Dead' Stella gets HorrorHound honor

Stella, the buxom host of "Saturday Night Dead" on KYW-TV from 1984 to 1990, was inducted into the HorrorHound Hall of Fame at the annual convention in Columbus, Ohio, over the weekend.

Stella, the "Maneater from Manayunk" a/k/a Karen Scioli, was excited to meet fellow horror Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, and have what she called, "A meeting of the cleavage," but was disappointed that Elvira didn't show up in character and was inducted under her real name, Cassandra Peterson. Stella now works on "Goth Mothers of Transylvania," which can be found on YouTube.


"It's sorta like Bravo's 'Real Housewives' except my ladies are dead," says Stella, who plays an 840-year-old vampire in the series, which will post new episodes, appropriately, on Friday, April 13.
