The same network that hosts The Long Island Medium has decided to venture further into their whimsical misrepresentation of mediumship by launching a second reality show based on the dark art, this one called “Mama Medium.”
A reader sent this email to our blog: “My therapist has a strong Catholic presence throughout her clinic and plays EWTN for me while I work out on the treadmill and bicycle. She attends daily noon Mass. She “sees” my deceased aunt hovering behind me and said Aunt I. has a concerned look on her face. I showed her several pics of deceased relatives and she picked out Aunt I. Once when talking to me during a rest period she excused herself and walked out of the room for a few minutes…like she had to recover from what she ‘saw’ around me. I was too scared to ask and she did not volunteer any information. Should I continue working with her or do you think she is new age?”
Regardless of how appealing they might appear, spirit mediums are engaging in one of the most dangerous practices – contacting the supposed dead – and often do so in rooms full of people who are all at risk for infestation from the “dead relatives” they allegedly contact.
Just what we need – another weird reality show from Discovery’s TLC that promotes “irregular” lifestyles. First it was Sister Wives which tries to portray polygamy (which is illegal in the U.S.) in a positive light, now it’s an eight-week series that peaks into the life of a Long Island woman who claims she can talk to the dead.
Sick of politics? Tired of all the squabbling in the hallowed halls of Congress? Take heart! The famous psychic necromancer, John Edward, appeared on Fox & Friends the other day and claimed the afterworld is bereft of politics.

One day, he went in to see his boss and the boss’ wife happened to be in the office. Even though she knew nothing about the death of his daughter, she told him: ‘Senor Flores, I see a girl next to you leaning into your shoulder. Who is she?’ . . .
