Meet ‘Mama Medium!’ The Star of TLC’s New Show ‘Plays Charades With Dead People’


TLC’s new series Mama Medium (premiering Monday, Nov. 5) might seem like familiar ground for the network ­— but wait until you meet her! Jennie Marie calls herself a “Comedium,” delivering a large dose of humor along with her astounding abilities. Not only is she a medium, but she’s also a psychic, an empath and a fourth-generation clairvoyant.

“Being psychic means that I can see the future,” Jennie Marie explains. “Being a medium means that I talk to passed loved ones. Being clairvoyant is how I receive my messages. So when I’m speaking to someone that’s passed, I see images. I tell people I play charades with dead people! … My third gift is I’m empathic, and that means I can literally feel energy. So if people are in a room with me, I can feel how they feel. When past loved ones come through and they want to validate how they passed, or if there’s pain in the person that I’m speaking to, my knee with hurt, or my head will hurt. I can literally feel these things and how they feel emotionally.”

Based out of Rochester, N.Y., Jennie Marie is a wife and mother of four sons, three of whom have inherited some of her abilities. She was only 7 years old when she started speaking with her great-grandmother who had passed, a woman she had never met before. At 12, the things she saw started coming true. But it wasn’t until her late 20s that her gift grew strong enough to conduct readings on herself and eventually individuals and groups.

Jennie Marie has even trained herself to know if her readings are correct. “If I am communicating with a past loved one — or even if you and I are speaking — and something is truthful, I get chills. I physically can feel chills, however you want to say that, goosebumps, when something is right. It’s a way that I’ve taught myself to be validated.”

Sometimes her messages arrive in unexpected ways. “I’ve had my phone go off in the middle of the night, but I had the ringer off. I look up, and it’s because a spirit’s trying to get my attention.”

Of course, there are always those who refuse to believe. “I feel skeptics believe, but they’re afraid; or they believe, but can’t acknowledge that they believe until they’ve seen proof. … I tell skeptics, ‘Meet me at my event, come to a group, talk to me afterwards. Because guess what? I’m gonna change your mind.’ It’s a challenge, I love it.”

Each episode of Mama Medium (Mondays beginning Nov. 5) showcases Jennie Marie’s abilities and gives viewers a look at what it’s like in her home with a gifted mom, gifted children and a husband keeping up with the chaos. “Every day in our lives, one of the children is talking about either my gift or their gift. So is it completely normal every day for us to talk about dead people or being a psychic? Absolutely 100 percent.” The show is relatable, emotional and funny — just a day in the life of a comedic medium!
