What do I do?
What's the long island medium?
A show about a lady that pretends she can talk to the dead, its credibility is right up there with Finding Bigfoot.
I see her all the time in the supermarket. Saw her a few weeks ago returning fruit that she said spoiled too soon. One would think a medium would have known that.
Like a bald preacher who says he can heal people.
Ahh, that's what I get for not having cable.
What to do....Mess with her. Start making a "ghost" in your house and try to get her to go see a medium on her own
Why would you want to change her mind ? Whenever you get in trouble with your wife, tell her the ghost did it .
Cue debate by people who actually think mediums and ghosts are real.

The answer to this question depends how long you wish to remain married.
Has she always been susceptible to taking this kind of stuff seriously?
The other day when we were arguing on the phone about the new Amazon Echo I was bringing home, I used my Wemo app to turn on the light right next to her chair and said "lighten up". As you might imagine, that did NOT go over too well.
She claims to have seen ghosts when she was young, her answer to my skepticism is always "you laugh now but wait until you see one!" Then I proceed to giggle some more.
Is it this particular medium that seems to have struck a chord with her, or is it mediums in general?
And, is this a recent thing? Or, did it ever come up in your dating days, or since you married?
There is a difference between claiming to believe that ghosts exist, or may exist, and believing that those who style themselves mediums have the means, or power to communicate with the dead.
I have one or two relatives who subscribe to some of this sort of stuff in a rather evangelical manner. My immoderate laughter and robust scepticism served to discourage further exploration of these topics at the dinner table.
that long island medium woman is such a fake flake, through and through.
how does trash like this end up on TV?
Speaking of clowns, this Gary Spivey character is regularly on the morning show I listen to, feeding people the same kind of BS. I mean look at that yokel, he wears a wig like this and eye shadow and people take him seriously? Really? Must be the same people who watch Fox News.
Do I believe in ghosts? No, but I'm afraid of them.

Always enjoyed that quote.
I'm pretty sure it's been since she was a child, I probably shouldn't mock her.
The Learning Channel. I'll just wait here while everyone reconciles that channel name with their programming.
But if it has been since she was a child, have you not known this until now? Or, was it not an issue?
Plenty of things you can do...the real question would be how willing you are to accept the consequences? If not, just ignore it and suffer in silence.
I am unsure why it is an issue if she believes there are things we cannot explain and that someone taps into it. I stay open to the explainable but find zero proof that any "medium" is a real conduit for anything other than notoriety and emptying people's coffers of coin.
I recall when that tiny lady with the high voice from Poltergeist was working as a conduit for the dead and was busted. She skipped out on bail and an all points bulletin went out - Small medium at large.
I should point out that the question is more in jest than anything.
It's a color of tan, first made famous by Snooki.
Sounds like there's really nothing to do.
Love me some snooks.

It's ok to be a sceptic. Let her know you question the premise, that most reality shows do not portray reality, and at best the viewer is dependent on the integrity of the show, which may be dishonest.
That said, I'm not prepared to call her a fraud, maybe, maybe not. I've watched this show and from what I've seen, she does not use leading questions, but the only way to really know would be to witness her in action first hand to know that the entire show is not a setup.
How can I tell if a psychic medium is real or fake?
Sadly, the average person is going to have a difficult time telling the difference between a legitimate psychic medium and a fake. Phonies, frauds and scam artists can be quite convincing. They can be good at deceiving people, especially people who are grieving or going through a desperate time in life, as these people are often more susceptible to suggestion. But there are telltale signs to help you spot a phony or scam artist.
