There are some celebrities who seem to hit instant fame the moment they’re given a bigger audience and that seems to be the case for Theresa Caputo. The star became a staple in the households of so many when her show, Long Island Medium, hit the airwaves on TLC in 2011.
The show features her talking with clients and people around the world who are seeking help through their grief in the form of a medium. According to Oprah, a medium is:
“A medium uses his or her psychic or intuitive abilities to see the past, present and future events of a person by tuning into the spirit energy surrounding that person. This means mediums rely on the presence of non-physical energy outside of themselves for the information relevant to the person being read.”
Basically, what Theresa Caputo does is she talks to the spirits of people who have passed on. And she does this in front of those loved ones who are grieving in hopes of giving them more comfortable.
