There’s a lot going on tonight in the medium world including a chance to win a reading with Long Island Medium Theresa Caputo. First, Hollywood Medium Tyler Henry gets some company when Theresa Caputo takes on Hollywood in a live two-hour event on TLC beginning at 8pmET/7pmCT.
Some of the celebs getting personal readings from Theresa include Lisa Joyner, who is host of TLC’s new Long Lost Family (which premieres tonight at 10pm), and her hubby actor/director Jon Cryer (Two and a Half Men).
“My father was my everything,” Joyner expressed in a preview clip. Theresa is able to share an emotional message with her and Cryer, and provide them with some peace. Press materials also detail that Theresa will be surprising locals on the streets of Hollywood as she tours famous and iconic landmarks including the Walk of Fame and the Stars Tour bus.
Since the age of 4 Theresa knew she was different from other kids. “I would always see a woman standing at the end of my bed at night. I would hear people call my name and talk to me and there was nobody there,” she said in an interview on Friday with Elvis Duran, on his radio show. Later in life she realized it was her great grandmother standing at the end of her bed, which made her feel “safe and loved.” She’s been using her gift for years helping people find closure [read about how she connected with my deceased mother]. In an episode later this season we will see Theresa going to a brain specialist to get further understanding of her gift, she shared that he told her that she accesses a part of her brain that nobody else does. So maybe we all have it in us?!
Theresa’s also doing another tweet to win contest, where one viewer will win a private reading with Theresa by tweeting #LIMLive and #Contest during the live broadcast, where she will be announce the winner LIVE on the air. To get the details on the rules and how to enter for a private reading, go to TLC’s site.
But that’s not it — the evening also includes some humorous pranks where Theresa disguises herself to surprise fans. In the clip we saw, Theresa was disguised as an obnoxious man named Joey (without her nails!), who attends a Stella & Dot jewelry party. She also disguises herself as a nurse and a waitress.
Lastly, the evening concludes with the introduction of a new series on TLC at 10pmET, Long Lost Family. The series features the emotional stories of people who have suffered a lifetime of separation, who are desperate to be reunited with people they feel an intense closeness to, but whom they’ve barely – if ever – met. Hosting the series are Chris Jacobs (Barrett Jackson car auction host and Overhaulin host) and Lisa Joyner, both of who are adoptees who have embarked on their own journeys to discover their biological families. Each episode follows the hosts as they investigate the stories of two individuals or families who have longed to resolve their lifelong searches. A successful investigation offers the promise of not just a heartwarming reunion, but also a chance of redemption for people who have wrestled with emotional agony for years.
