LONG Island Medium star Theresa Caputo has been slammed for only reading “the rich and famous” after launching her new series.
The medium, whose new show airs on Discovery+, was criticized by fans on social media after revealing she had given readings to the likes of Meghan Trainor and Rosario Dawson.

“I used to love your SHOW!!! Then you started reading more and more rich and famous people,” commented one upset fan.
“I could NEVER feel the same emotions I did when you read a everyday person. And it seemed the longer harder waiting list for us. But a easy list for the rich. And now the your on + money wins.”
Another added: “The famous folks she reads-I don’t really care. I’d rather she read the ‘every day folks’.”
“I don’t like that the people she reads are more famous than the regular people. Sad,” added a third, while one fan shared: “Not sure I like the look of this new format reading celebrities.”

One cynic replied: “Easier to do a read on someone that has a huge social media presence. Think about it. Cold reads are generalizations.
“100 people. 25% will have a dead relative named John or Mary. 100% will have a dead great grandparents. Social media is a warm read. Easily researched. Believe what you want. No harm, right?”
Discovery confirmed earlier in 2021 that the show would launch “brand new episodes” of the series on February 5.

“Things may look a little different for everyone right now, but one thing that hasn’t changed is Theresa Caputo‘s ability to connect with spirit while giving the gift of comfort and closure to many during an incredibly challenging time,” Discovery said.
Over the years fans had got to know not just Theresa but also her family, including husband Larry, and her two children, Larry Junior and Victoria.

“”I’m dating, I’m dating. I am in an exclusive relationship,” she shared.
“It’s very different from when I originally started dating, oh my God, over 30 years ago.”
