I wonder if she saw this coming...too soon?

I saw her do a casino show a few months ago. They were free tickets, my neighbor is a high roller and gets all sorts of crap. I wouldn't have paid for them. I was pretty skeptical about her "gifts" after seeing that show. She had no connection with anyone.

I was going to make the same joke, then I read an article that said she predicted she would die at age 88. She was 77. Oops.

An acquaintance from high school got into her books after his dad got cancer. It's been a very creepy personality change to watch, and I fear it will not end well.

About as accurate as most of the shit she said.

I am discouraged to read she had 22 NYT best sellers. Really people?

Anne Rice posted her passing on her FB page. There were quite a few people who called Browne out as a fraud and I couldn't believe the lengths some Browne supporters went to defend some of her failures and shady stuff.

She told Amanda Berry 's mom that she was dead, same with that boy who the pedophile was holding for years. She told some people their kids were alive and then the bodies were discovered. Not nice.

Sylvia Browne wasn't even good at faking it. I don't understand how she was so popular. She was always wrong!

TMZ had an article on some psychic called Miss Cleo and her reactions was: "I didn't see this coming". heh.

People always want to believe. Who was the man who had a show a few years ago - something Edwards? I remember SP did an epic takedown of him.

I hate to speak ill of the dead but what she did to those families (and probably countless others) is sick. I can't believe people could still be fans of her after that.

The John Edwards Biggest Douche in the Universe episode was thing of beauty.

Miss Cleo! I used to watch her on the latelatelatelatelate local t.v. station. I think she came on just before the channel signed off for the night, so her audience was probably drunks, night shift workers, insomniacs, and stoners. She took calls from viewers (who you just knew were her family and friends) and made shameless pitches for her psychic services. She ended up being booted from t.v. because she was--brace yourselves--a fraud. I think there may even have been legal charges at some point. My second favourite psychic after the incomparable, and inexplicable, Walter Mercado.

I used to love Sylvia Browne back before Montel Williams was diagnosed with MS and got all touchy feely and I couldn't watch him anymore. She came to town once and I kind of wanted to go see her, but I knew it would ruin the "magic" so I didn't go. I never really watched her/followed her once I stopped watching her on Montel, though.

I LOVE John Edwards, though. He's such a train wreck of a psychic. "I'm getting a name....it starts with an....S. Sara? Samantha? Susan? Sandra? Sandra? ok it's a....male that's coming through...did you lose a son? grandson? father? grandfather? Grandfather? You lost your grandfather? it feels like something heavy around the chest area...did he die of a....he..ar..t issue.

I loved his show on Syfy back when it was just Scifi.

James Randi, IIRC ran a website called stopsylvia or something like that. In addtion to telling Amanda Barry's family that Amanda was dead, she also said that Shawn Hornbeck was dead. I watched her on Montel in 2007 or 2008 before the presidental election and she said that Obama wasn't going to be president.

ETA: On the topic of psychics, I don't think there is definite answer to whether they exist or not. I do think some people get feelings about certain things that end up happening. I remember there was a thread on here about the Boston bombing and someone said that they had a bad feeling that something was going to happen that day.

I remember Miss Cleo

I cant pass Cleo's furniture without thinking about her and imitating her accent.

I never saw the show, just the daytime commercials

When George Noory from Coast to Coast wouldn't have her on because he thought she was a fraud, well...

My dad said he kicked her off...but you mean he refused to have her on in the first place?

I'm a lifelong insomniac. When I was 6 or 7, my mom woke up to noise from the living room around 3 AM on a weeknight. She went to investigate and found me, curled up in my Little Mermaid sleeping bag, eating M&Ms, and watching Miss Cleo. When she asked me what I was doing, I said, matter of factly, "Having a Stay Up All Night Party with myself."

...I had to go to bed after that.

He used to have her on. She was on the night they found the bodies of the miners in (I believe) West Virginia. JUST PRIOR to the bodies being retrieved, she said "They will be found" indicating they would be alive. She, of course, backtracked when they were found dead.

Between that and Shawn Hornbeck (mentioned on this thread earlier) George Noory just said he didn't want her on his show anymore because he didn't believe she was a psychic. And this is a guy who believes in psychics, aliens, the new world order, etc. (Yes, I subscribe to the podcast... :embarrassed: )

I remember seeing Sylvia Brown on the Larry King show a week before 9-11, talking about all kinds of superficial stuff. If she was really psychic, she would have been working for the NSA and the FBI to stop 9-11, not appearing on talk shows to promote herself.

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW
      Franklin, TN

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!
