Long Island Medium

Thursdays Bite

a glimpse into the supernatural

If you’ve missed my romance author news lately, check out Monday’s blog to see all the new venues The Dark Huntsman, A Fantasy Romance of the Black Court is now available on. It’s not just on Amazon, baby! And now that I’ve managed to load everywhere, I’m super excited to release Prince by Blood and Bone, A Fantasy Romance of the Black Court, book two in the series. Just waiting on the cover. It’s been a few months coming, but I can’t wait to have it done. I’m thinking that February will be a good release month, but at this point I’m afraid to set the goal. Every time I do someone has a catastrophe and the book is delayed. I’m not sending anyone any more catastrophes, so no dates yet! I’ll wait until I have the cover in my hot little hands. 

Now on to the blog!

Last week I mentioned how excited I am to have Vikings on the history channel in February. I love the show and I find it a refreshing change from all the reality tv slush out there. But, I do have to say I have one reality tv weakness. My guilty pleasure is the show, Long Island Medium. I don’t know why I love watching Theresa Caputo go through her supernatural life on Long Island so much, but I do. There is something reassuring about her. She’s not a flashy medium with purple hair and woo-woo robes.

Okay, she is a little flashy, I’ll admit it. She has an amazing hair-do that must take hours and cans of hairspray to maintain, and her long white nails are a little intimidating for someone like me with the ability to tear a nail in seconds, but overall she’s just what she says she is, “A typical Long Island mom.”

Speaking of Theresa’s nails, you haven’t seen anything until you’ve watched a city girl with a NYT manicure milk a cow. It’s crazy! And she’s pretty good at it too. I think that’s why I like the show. Only Theresa could milk a cow with those nine-inch nails and give a psychic reading to a skeptical farmer at the same time. She’s amazing! (On a super cheapskate alert I can’t post this Youtube video because TLC charges you $1.99 to watch the episode. Yes, they want to make money every which way possible, but take my word for it, those nails can milk!)

And she even has a book! WOOT! I haven’t read the book, I just love watching the show. If you’ve read the book let me know what you thought. Some of my friends watch the ghost hunter guys shine black lights around basements and talk to themselves. I like watching Theresa bump into strangers in ice cream shops and tell them their moms are still looking out for them. What can I say? I’m a softie!

What is your guilty tv pleasure? Do you have one? Do you watch some of those reality shows or reruns of I Love Lucy? What about old black and white movies or late night horror? There must be a lot of horror fans because when I search for a movie on Demand there is almost nothing to watch that isn’t scary. Tell me your secret vice, shh, it’s just between us and the spirits!

  1. Theresa Caputo accomplishes what each writer should strive to do: trigger connection with their audience through relatable emotion and authenticity. I haven’t watched her show, but have seen her in guest spots. Her message is positive, comparable to that of John Edward (whose show I was, for a time, addicted to.)

  2. Oh dear. Now you’ve done it. I’ll have to watch. But just one episode!

    • I should have done this post during the season, when it’s on. It’s a very short season so I have to be very alert to catch it. But you cam watch it on Netflix, or pay the money to watch on YouTube. Have fun with it!

  3. I’ve wanted to watch both those shows. My sister-in-law talks about that Long Island Medium. It sounds great.

    • It’s kind of silly, but I love it. She records all her sessions on cassette tapes. Cassette tapes! I have no idea how the people listen to them after their readings, and she has to go all over to find the cassettes. 🙂
