Judy Tenuta discusses being a Love Goddess

DURATION: 00:08:09


Self-proclaimed Love Goddess, Judy Tenuta, was also known as the Aphrodite of the Accordion, to her fans. Tenuta talks about how she saw Elvis in her Cheese Whiz and he told her to start her own religion, which is known as Judyism. Calling herself the Love Goddess came to be after her brothers literally kissed her hands and feet when she asked them to. This is a very short conversation that ends abruptly.
