As might be expected when one is a wealthy socialite and former model, Savannah has accumulated scads of friends, lovers, and various hangers-on over the decades. If you're wondering who the heck Chablis LaRoca is, or Guillermo de Plata y Reyes, or any of the other names that pop up in these columns from time to time, you can refer to this complete-ish listing of who's who in Savannah's vast entourage.
Bobo “Orange Sunshine” Diesel – Savannah's attorney, whose motto is “sanctioned does not mean disbarred.”
Bruutus Bengally – Savannah's current lover (as of 2019) and erstwhile penitentiary penpal. She has yet to meet him in person.
Chablis LaRoca – Savannah met Chablis when the two of them modeled for the Sears-Roebuck undergarments campaign of 1977, and the two have been inseparable ever since. Today Chablis dabbles in dream interpretation.
Deke “Big Tex” Fontaine – A fixture at the Friday Night Flamenco Tournament and Salsa Rodeo, Big Tex tried romancing Savannah in the early 2000s but has settled on being just a friend/no benefits.
Dieter's Bavarian Sanitarium – a rehab facility in nearby Ojo Caliente, NM, where Savannah takes frequent retreats
Elizabeth – Savannah's closest confidante, long-suffering personal secretary, and sober-ish companion. Elizabeth is the person who keeps the entire Savannah Says empire going.
Elsa Von Thyrstenburg-Winston – Another longtime friend and fellow socialite, Elsa excels at hurling German epithets and passing out drunk in the rosewater bowl during seances.

Wynne Dixie – Savannah's cousin and interior decorator. Believes Elvis was her father.
