In the midst of Theresa Caputo's separation from her husband Larry Caputo, she is leaning on her parents for support. The Long Island Medium star opened up about how much she's been depending on her dad Nicholas J. Brigandi to help out with household chores now that Larry moved to California, and now fans want to know more about Theresa's mom and dad.
Theresa's father Nicholas is 77 years old and is from Hicksville, NY which is where he raised Theresa and her brother Michael with his wife, Veronica. In her bio on her official website, Theresa said that she is very close with her parents, which explains why Theresa's dad was so concerned for her as she struggled with the issues in her marriage.
"I think as parents, when something is wrong or upsetting our children, we just want to fix it for them — but my dad can't fix whats going on between Larry and I," Theresa said in her confessional. "Like everyone else in the family, my parents are sad about what's going on between Larry and I. So my parents — as sad and as hard it is for them — they are there, just loving and supporting us."
Theresa is definitely super close with both of her parents though, and even though fans haven't seen much of Theresa's mom on the show, Veronica makes an occasional appearance on her daughter's Instagram. Back in January, the mother-daughter duo spent some quaility time during a "girl's night out" to see Kinky Boots on Broadway.
It's safe to say that Theresa's parents have always been super supportive of her and her profession as a medium. In her bio, Theresa revealed that her mom was the one who introduced her Pat Longo, who is a spiritual healer and teacher, and Pat is the person who actually helped Theresa hone in on her gift.
"After just one session, she told me that I was suppressing Spirit’s energy, which caused a lot of my anxiety, and helped me learn to channel Spirit through my chakras and release it with my words," Theresa wrote. "I began to heal and come into my own."
