Even if she is faking but really performs like she does on the show, I don't have a problem with it. Some people will spend thousands in therapy and that is acceptable, so $50-$92 for someone to get closure is absolutely worth it in my opinion. She really seems to help some get through survivor's guilt. I don't care if she's just really observant, if it helps people that is all that matters to me.

It always makes me cry also! I think it's because I want to believe so bad. I think would my dad step forward and say something about me or to me? I hope so if I ever get a chance to meet her!

That was hysterical! However, I believe their is a method to "faking" this (as was demontrated to the kids and I on an episode of South Park ).

Mileage varies.

I think it's pretty reprehensible to profit off grief and desperation. They're bad, bad people imo.

If someone wants to see how it's done, there's likely video of the Amazing Randi doing it someplace. I think one of them who took his challenge too, but then ran away or whatever.

This guy is really good. We use to use a lady name Lisa Greene but she has not been feeling well and it has interfer with talking to the animals. ok I know that sounds weird, lol. She doesn't do people, her personal choice, but Charles does.

http://charlespeden.wordpress.com/

My sister and her friend called him because the friend wanted to hear about her dog that had just passed. No problems with telling her about her dog but he kept seeing a forest and it was confusing him. He then said he kept seeing airplanes from the war yrs ago, something like that.
He asked if either one of them knew someone that flew airplanes during the war. My sister said, oh my God that is Forest the man I use to take care of. Well Forest is still alive but has Alzheimer's. Charles told my sister that Forest wants his sisters to talk to him. The sisters moved Charles closer to them so my sister no longer cared for him.
My sister called one of the sisters and told her to please go chat with Forest so he would stop interfering with their readings lol.

Count me in as a crier, too. I got back from a disney trip a couple weeks ago feeling blue. I sat down and watched 2 hours on demand, and sobbed. Lol!

I like her, but I liked john edwards, too.

So funny, so wonderful! I re-watched it like three times!

I love Theresa! And in one episode she visited my hometown of East Northport.

However, I can't stand her family. I think her kids are spoiled brats. Her husband is beginning to grow on me.

I've tried searching for the SNL skit and can't find it. Does someone have a link?

I don't know about the show but I know 2 people she picked to read at a local event and she was spot on with everything she said.

She lives in the next neighborhood and stopped at deli where my friend works and did tell her in formation that was true about a deceased relative.
My friend said her boss didn't want anything to do it but she started rattling off info of him that spooked him.

I saw her in person over the summer. There was no one going around beforehand gathering any information. She basically talked for a few minutes on stage about what she does and her background and then went out into the audience and did random readings for just about 2 hrs nonstop. I think if you went there as a skeptic you'd be inclined to believe by the time you left. It was pretty amazing to watch.

She's going to be in AC this weekend, mom and I are thinking of going. Mom has lots of dead relatives and my Grammy was a bossy chick so if anyone is going to come thru it would be here lol.

The thing is, I don't know if I believe or not. I don't think she has an evil bone in her body, but at the same time, I tend to learn from what John Edwards kept saying, "Don't wait to tell someone something now."

He's right. So, my husband and I have a word, no one else knows it. If one of us passes, then we'll know if the other one "comes through." I also have a few things with my my grandfather, so I will know if it is him and he has passed away.

I do WANT her to be real, though. The peace she gives people is just nice and I do enjoy her show.

On the other hand, think of the game Twenty Questions. By narrowing down things logically, you'll come to the answer.

How do you know there wasn't a cohort gathering information? They're good, or they wouldn't be making money.

If it's 'rosebud' I'd reconsider.
