The "Long Island Medium" and a New York Times best-selling author, Theresa Caputo's special talents have given her the golden ticket to fame. The star is backed wholeheartedly by her family. 

Born and raised in Hicksville Long Island, Theresa Caputo claims to have been seeing, feeling, and sensing Spirit since she was four years old. In her 20s she learned to communicate with souls in Heaven.

However, the divorce did not ruin their friendship according to Theresa. She told Good Housekeeping

"I never thought in a million years that Larry and I would be divorced, but the way that we still have our relationship [that is something I am so proud of]," she explains to us. "You know, we're able to communicate with each other and be there for our kids and still allow him to have that separate relationship with our children from myself."
