Money in the bank, baby! As the latest season of Long Island Medium continues to play out on TLC, fans can’t help but wonder how much money the reality series’ star Theresa Caputo has. Well, after more than six years on television, the famous psychic is certainly rolling in the dough.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Theresa, 51, is worth an estimated $3 million. In addition to her long-running TV career, the outspoken New York native has amassed her fortune thanks to several bestselling books and ticket sales from live shows around the U.S. Back in 2013, Theresa appeared on the Today show, and revealed that she never imagined her special “gift” would bring her so much success.

“I never thought in a million years,” she told former Today co-hosts Natalie Morales and Billy Bush at the time. “I thought I was going to do a couple of episodes. I was still booking appointments, and I thought I was going to go on with my little life.”
Though some critics have suggested Theresa is a fraud — and can’t actually communicate with the dead — the acrylic manicure enthusiast insists her sought-after skills are the real deal. During a March 2017 appearance on Fox & Friends, the bubbly blonde (who charges $50 to $75 per reading, and has a two-year waiting list) recalled getting examined by a doctor with a camera crew in tow, to show there was something different about her.
“They did find that I do access a part of my brain that we typically don’t and that my brain actually goes blank. It’s almost like it flatlines. Like, it’s clear as I’m channeling,” the Good Grief author said, adding that she was not surprised by her results. “I always said that my brain doesn’t work like everyone else’s. I always said since I was a young child, ‘Mom, I don’t feel right. I don’t feel like I belong. I feel different.’”
Long Island Medium airs Monday nights at 9 p.m. on TLC.
