i have a feeling its all staged, she meets with the people before the show and tells them "act really surprised when i point out certain things about your "deceased" love one and maybe cry a bit i dunno"
TLC thought it was a good idea to air a show about a fraud that cold reads and exploits people. Then again, this is the same channel that gives us Honey Boo Boo so not a big surprise they lower the bar with this crap...

When ever I visit a psychic, I always ask them for my name first. It's a really out-there name, so it's very difficult to guess. I actually met someone once who I still swear was the real deal. He was able to tell me my name and the details of an incident that (up to that point) only I and someone who is dead now, knew about. I was just like, "Here. Take $50. I'm running away now "
Make any CERTAINTIES? Do you how utterly ludicrous the idea of CONSIDERING that she can somehow speak to the dead is? If I told you I could make party confetti shoot out of my ass like a T-shirt cannon would you give me the benefit of the doubt if you never met me?
I don't think that a person can really speak to the dead, but perhaps sense them and have little communication. Well, as to your question, I've seen people spray paint out their ass, so, I would at least wait for you to prove it to me before claiming that you couldn't. Then again, I wouldn't really want to see that e.o Remember, I did say that I'm more doubtful of her abilities.
I am a really sad person. I really thought at first that you were talking about alcohol. So apparently not only am I a pervert, I'm a drunk too.
I have a hard time believing in mediums that advertise themselves to the public or make themselves well known. It seems that people that brag about their capabilities in that area are usually the ones that tend to be crooks. I've never heard of Theresa Caputo, but if she's really popular I'm going to say there is a 90% chance she's fake. I always thought if someone was a medium they didn't advertise their gifts in such a way when they would gain a nickname like the "Long Island Medium", which really sounds like an ingredient for a cocktail drink.
On your semi-related notes, it's really hard to reply in a thought-out, respectful manner to people that give off such deplorable mannerisms. I only give respect to people that earn it. You can't be mature with every single response because it doesn't work for a lot of people on the internet.
"I always thought if someone was a medium they didn't advertise their gifts in such a way when they would gain a nickname like the 'Long Island Medium', which really sounds like an ingredient for a cocktail drink."
You should see her- she looks like a ingredient for a cocktail xD
That being said, I don't think *all* mediums are fake. Just most of them.
My mom is psychic, and I trust her because... well, she's my mom. We're really close, and I know she's not lying or purposefully cold reading. I think some of it *is* cold reading just because she's very perceptive by nature, but she's also done some really uncanny shit before, stuff that goes beyond just a cold reading. Still, I'd be lying if I told you I wasn't still somewhat skeptical of that stuff in general.
Also, I've had a few experiences with so-called psychics just by random chance. One asked to read us for free in a coffee shop. It was a while ago, but I remember him clearly describing the layout of our house. So either he was legit to some extent, or he stalked us xD I dunno.
