Where are you from?
Los Angeles. I lived in sixteen different houses growing up there. At one point, we were across the street from the Sharon Tate house; at another, we lived in Elvis’s old Bel Air bachelor pad. It was where he first met the Beatles.

Any Elvis sightings?
One of my sisters was obsessed with the fact that he died on the toilet, so we held a séance in the bathroom and tried to bring him back. We lit lots of candles, and I actually set my sleeve on fire! I had to stop, drop, and roll. The whole house smelled like burning hair.
