Long Island Medium: Exclusive New Clip

Originally posted 09/16/2012 07:30AM



Theresa Caputo can't help it – when a spirit is trying to communicate, she simply can't ignore the message.

Such was the case when Caputo, the star of TLC's Long Island Medium, was interviewing prospective assistants. In this exclusive clip from Sunday's episode, she channels the spirit of one candidate's mother.

"I had no intention of channeling spirit," she says. "But this is my life." Caputo shares information with potential assistant Joseph from his departed mother, much of it so meaningful and specific that it brings him to tears.

Everything You'd Want to Ask the Long Island Medium ... Answered

Long Island Medium: An Enlightening Interview

Originally posted 09/07/2012 02:40PM

Can Theresa Caputo, aka the Long Island Medium, really communicate with your deceased loved ones?

She did with one of mine.

Well, it sure seemed like it, anyway, when I sat down to interview her Thursday. I'm what you might call a skeptical believer. I'd really like to believe that this type of spirit-to-earth communication is possible. But come on ... this lady from Long Island with the big hair is the lucky chosen one through which all of our loved ones can send messages?

But Caputo, (whose TLC series about her practicing her gift returns Sunday for its third season), was able to provide me with some very specific, personal information about my own passed loved one, and these aren't things that would show up in a Google search or even a background check on me. In short, I don't think she used any sort of trickery. At the very least, she's incredibly perceptive – spookily perceptive.

From pageant princess to coupon queen!

This week on TLC's Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, Alana (better known as Honey Boo Boo) and family hit their local Piggly Wiggly for a hilarious lesson in couponing.

"It's even better than sex!" Alana's mom, June, says of her couponing addiction. "I taught myself, it's not that hard. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to coupon," she adds.

Honey Boo Boo: America's Sweetheart or Its Worst Nightmare?

Originally posted 08/09/2012 10:15AM

Well, little Alana Thompson has arrived. But is this pint-size beauty-pageant star more Honey or more Boo Boo?

The first two episodes of TLC's Here Comes Honey Boo Boo premiered Wednesday night, starring the 6-year-old former Toddlers & Tiaras star and her "cr-azy" Georgia family – dad Sugar Bear, mom June and big sisters Pumpkin, Chickadee and Chubbs.

They go to the Redneck Games. They prepare Alana for pageants. They go to auctions to buy junk food for the family. And by and large, they leave viewers aghast with behavior that reinforces the worst stereotypes of Southern culture.

Breaking Amish Documents Amish Youth Moving to N.Y.C.

Originally posted 08/02/2012 07:00PM

From churning butter to churning out the drama.

A new reality show will document the lives of five young people as they leave their small towns to discover themselves in the big city.

But it's not a remake of The Hills. It's TLC's Breaking Amish – and its stars are leaving their Amish and Mennonites communities.

Different from Rumspringa – the period of time when an Amish adolescent decides whether or not to join the church – Jeremiah, Kate, Abe, Rebecca and Sabrina travel to New York City to grapple with their identities and plan for their futures.

Virgin Diaries: Skippy, 34, Is Looking for Love

Originally posted 06/26/2012 04:40PM



It's hard to find love when you're a 34-year-old virgin – especially when you live in your parents' basement. At least that's the impression we get from Skippy, one of the stars of TLC's new pair of Virgin Diaries episodes, set to air July 18 and July 25.

"The ideal girl isn't thinking that her ideal guy still lives at home in Mom's basement," says Skippy in this clip from the show. "But I do."

Skippy, who regularly takes his mother out to bars as his "Wing Mom," spends a good portion of this clip showing off his Skippy-themed T-shirts. The tees, which he designs himself, feature slogans such as "I made out with Skippy for three minutes, and all I got was this lousy T-shirt."

Virgin Diaries: Meet the Stars of the TLC Special

Originally posted 12/01/2011 08:00PM



The 40-year-old Virgin was a work of fiction, but TLC's Virgin Diaries is the true story of older adults who've never had sex.

The show chronicles a number of 20 and 30-something virgins, including roommates Lisa, Tamara and Danielle, who are all saving themselves for marriage.

Well, sort of.

Tamara calls herself a "reclaimed virgin," admitting that she's had sex with multiple partners, but in recent years decided to refrain from sex until marriage.
