Most of you aren’t even SLYCIC (copyright: God Warrior, never 4get), but I’m sure that for years you’ve been sensing a strong feeling that the Long Island Medium is full of bullshit. Your senses might be right. Author and investigator Ron Tebo has testimonies and stories from some of her followers and people she works with that proves that she’s nothing but a shameless, greedy, charlatan who makes money from swindling grieving people. Ron says that the Long Island Medium couldn’t sense a spirit if one wet farted up her nostril.
Ron tells Radar that he’s got Theresa Caputo’s number and for over a year he’s been investigating her shady act. Ron talked to Theresa’s associates and clients and learned that she uses old timey cold reading techniques and background checks to fool people. According to Ron, the mash-up of Jennifer Aniston, the Bride of Frankenstein and Kate Gosselin’s old possum hair is pretty much a professional guesser and trickster. She studies somebody’s body language and clothes and asks them vague ass questions like, “Did a living thing in your life die sometime after you were born?” Ron also believes that Theresa runs background checks on some of the audience members of her show. Theresa’s partners in trickery get the names, phone numbers and addresses of audience members from Ticketmaster. When she gets that info, her people run background checks and find out as much info as they can. Apparently, Theresa focuses a lot on the people in the front row.
Ron says that Theresa only shows accurate readings on her TV show, but he talked to some people who went to her show and weren’t impressed.
“She seemed off and almost every reading was like pulling teeth to match up info. She was really grasping at straws and did a lot of ‘fishing,’” one disappointed audience member at the April 5 reading recently complained to Ticketmaster.com. “For the most part, readings were forced and uninspired.”
“Some [readings] were just off the mark,” said another ticket-buyer at a New Orleans show in November.
An audience member recalled to Ticketmaster in her grievance. “Teresa spent the entire time on the first floor. I was a Theresa Caputo believer and watched every one of her shows,” the former fan continues. “My young daughter died this summer and I needed to believe in something. After tonight, I am no longer a believer. There were many grieving people there, hoping for closure, or a sign from their loved ones and 2,490 people left defeated and deflated.”
One of Theresa Caputo’s employees told Radar that even if she is faking it, it doesn’t matter, because she’s bringing people closure (while taking their cash).
I am shocked, appalled and filled with disgust (but that could be from the cabbage juice my mom told me to drink to fix this acid reflux mess)! How dare the Long Island Medium give ghost whisperers out there a bad name. How dare she shit all over the pristine legacy left by consummate medium Sylvia Browne! If the Long Island Medium really could contact spirits, Sylvia Browne would slap her (read: give her a high five) from beyond the grave.
And you should never ever trust a woman whose regular daytime nails don’t even look remotely human.
