I feel bad for the people they hook, because I empathize with them, wanting to know about their loved ones, but there is part of me that just screams "you damn fool".
    I had an experience with one that shook me to my very core. I had one approach me and tell me things and do things that make me believe there definitely are real mediums out there.

    She told me she was offered a show and declined it because her gift was not to profit from.

    I'll never forget this woman. She was truly beautiful (she looked like an angel, too - I know that sounds crazy) inside and out.

    I'm a skeptic at heart but I don't rule it out completely, especially if people swear by it, and if a medium can give them some comfort and closure, I'm all for it. That said, if it's someone just preying on them and/or profiting from their grief, then I hope that person dies in a fiery fire.

    I've never seen this lady's show but she is so annoying from her previews. I don't doubt that she's a fraud, like that Sylvia Browne woman. These so-called psychics just prey on people at their weakest moments and rob them blind. It's disgusting.

    I have to admit, that I LOVE Sylvia Browne's version of the afterlife. Ever since I was a wee Boogs, I though Heaven sounded "boring", and being food for worms was even MORE boring. Her version leans more into reincarnation, and that hell doesn't exist. I think I like her version of the afterlife, because it is how I envision the afterlife. She could be full of shit on that too, but since it is so close to MY vision of the afterlife, that I can't knock it. It would be like me telling myself that I'm full of shit, and we can't have that.

    Ever since I came to the conclusion she's a fraud, her voice grates my last nerve. If anyone else in the house is watching it, I put in earphones.

Idk if it's true, but I like the show because people's reactions seem genuine and it kind of feels comforting, to watch people deal with something you've dealt with.

    I went to a live show of hers too, with my mom (she'd lost her sister and wanted to see if she could hear from her). It grossed me out a lot, though. They broadcasted the people she approached on a big screen up front, and watching strangers cry on a huge screen while others scream from across the room "Us over here come to us!" like it's a contest or something, and her in a pair of sky high sparkly LB's... it felt shameless. Especially since I'm in Connecticut so there were a lot of parents of deceased Sandy Hook children and teachers, so that really felt uncomfortable. Because even though they believed she was real, just hearing them talk about their dead children to a woman who could be faking it all... it felt gross.
    I'm from CT too. I knew she went to one of the universities...an acquaintance went, but I keep forgetting to ask what her eexperience was. I do believe people have gifts, I don't know how you can focus in a crowd.

    Yes! Her voice is so irritating! And so is her hideous hair and disgusting nails.

    Google "cold reading" and you'll quickly see how these celeb "psychics" ply their trade. If it's skilfully done they can be very convincing and their audiences will be filled with people who desperately WANT to believe. I'd put this woman, John Edward and that rude old hag Sylvia Browne in that category.

    Having said that I think there are some people with a genuine gift but they tend to stay under the radar even though they know there's a LOT of money to be made from it.

    James Randi is a bit of a hero of mine. I love watching him expose these "psychics" for the frauds they are.
