She hasn’t gone Hollywood, but Long Island Medium star Theresa Caputo has done readings for many A-listers over the TLC reality show’s 10 seasons. And each celeb she talks with seems moved by the experience — often to tears!
Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons appeared on the show with his sister Julie Pruski, for example, and talked with Theresa about their father, who died in a car accident in 2001. “It was very intense and very moving,” Jim told Entertainment Tonight of the experience. “She’s the right medium, I guess you would say, to get across some deep messages.”
The Sopranos star Jamie-Lynn Sigler, a fellow Long Islander, brought her mom to see Theresa — and the reality star picked up on the outrageous personality of Jamie’s late brother Adam, who died in 2014. “He goes, ‘Tell my mom I love her hair,’” Theresa told the Siglers. “He says, ‘But, you know, she could talk about me … I got great headshots. She could show my picture!”
She also spoke with soap opera legend Susan Lucci, who seemed blown away by the reading. “I am so happy,” Susan said afterwards. “The first people she spoke about [were] my dad and then my grandfather. I was very, very close to them. They both have had such a big influence on me and continue to.”
Theresa has met with other big names, too — including This Is Us' Chrissy Metz and Frasier alum Kelsey Grammar, both of whom teared up during their episodes. With emotional conversations like these, it’s no wonder she has admirers in Tinseltown.
“I don’t think that I’m famous,” she told ET. “So when I did all the celebrity reads, the first thing they would say to me was like, ‘Oh my god, I’m such a huge fan, I watch your show,’ and I’m like, ‘What?’ Like, ‘Are you kidding me?’” Apparently, even Hollywood folk like to binge-watch reality TV!
