hi, glad someone else is here.

i have a feeling the marriage on the rocks is real. i don't know much about radar online. do they usually post the truth or it is it just a speculation/rumor site? why her father would tell the media that, i don't know. he could have just slipped while talking to one of them. 

i love the snark and the fun and the  dissing of actors and actresses. not with a lot of malice but i like to hear the gossip, the rumors, etc. takes me away from my life and a job i hate. i don't know if there are any more forums like that. i haven't even found it on Facebook. but i'm not a big fan of that anyway. 

well, i hope we can keep "reviewing" each episode and find out what's going on.  my medium abilities :) tell  me someone is cheating. i'll say theresa.

Hey MsRachelj! Keep coming back here. I have LIM on my favorites list so I know when someone posts.

Now I'm more interested in finding out if they really are getting divorced than I am in watching her tv show!

Well she didn't really divulge much about her Larry problems in this episode.  The segment with her friend was clearly a set-up and likely scripted, IMO, like it was done purely to get people to tune in.  There has been a sudden change in Theresa this season.  She's likely going through menopause so that may be one factor, but it's like she's suddenly been over-affected by her fame or something.  I wouldn't be surprised if she's having an affair with a famous person.  I feel sorry for Larry.

i am not into the readings anymore. well, with work i don't have a lot of tv time and i guess i deemed this not worthy. and some of them were so sad, i don't need to be more depressed.  but i do like the family aspect. very disappointing that they didn't devote more time to the divorce aspect. i could have done without all the workout stuff. sorry but to me she still looks the same. maybe try to work on those flabby arms. she doesn't look so fit to me so i'm tired of hearing about it. 

menopause maybe. though it doesn't really change your personality that much does it? more like fame and loads of cash have gone to her head. 

i think she has gotten to big for her britches as they used to say way before my time!

not much info on the homefront on the recent show. i wish she would give the reason already just why she and larry are on the outs. and the previews show her getting all upset during a reading when she feels it hits close to home about her relationship. 

 i have come to the conclusion that i do not know just how teresa gets some of her information so on spot about the people she reads. i am always thrown when she says something during a reading and the person says " no one knew that" or " i never told anyone that" ,but it does seem like the purpose is to give them comfort, take away the guilt, etc. which is a wonderful thing. i don't know if it balances out the possible ( i'm very skeptical of these things, i want to believe in an afterlife etc but common sense(?) science, etc just win out over faith. unfortunately. i wish i could put myself in the hands of god and feel more at ease, alas i am still waiting)  trickery and deceit. 

toward the end when she was at a venue and reading an audience, i could not look away from her cheap looking (probably very expensive) stringy ass extensions that did her no favors. she needs a makeover but not those ugly extensions.

My friend in Canada went to one of Theresa's venues.  It was in a huge arena with 4500 (yes, thats right...four thousand five hundred) people. 

What are your chances of getting a "reading" with that many people attending? And Theresa's head must have been spinning with 4500 dead spirits in one place! 

I believe she is legit but she is becoming (as MsRachelj said) "Too big for her britches"!

Even if she is legit, how can she filter out all the cross talk among spirits to focus in on only a few?  I've seen videos of her huge readings and they're nowhere near as "spot on" as the ones we see on the show.  I've read that the show filters out all the "dead ends" that don't resonate for the person so that it will look like she's always right on the money.  I think that even if she is wrong sometimes it wouldn't prove her to be a scam artist, just not 100% accurate at receiving messages.  No one could be that perfect.

The only other "medium" I  follow, and really like, is John Edward. He always prefaces his readings by telling people he can' guarantee whose energy might come through. So if someone is hoping to get a message from their son who passed, it might be another relative that sends a message.

With Theresa, she ALWAYS manages to get messages from the exact dead person the client wants to "contact".

I've thought that myself.  The one and only time I ever saw a medium the woman said she didn't know who was coming through but just told me what they were telling her.  I soon realized it was one of my best friend's fathers that had passed a few years before because she used specific expressions that only he had used and she said he was a "big personality", which he was.  It was uncanny!  Of course I would rather it have been my grandmother or my uncle!  Didn't Theresa just do a reading this season where someone else came through, not the person the woman had wanted it to be?  I can't remember now but I seem to remember this and it was out of the ordinary for her.

just watched the most recent. we still don't know exactly what marital troubles are going on and the next show is the season finale. i really hate how tv works these days. like 5 shows is a whole season for some?!

anyway, she had better let us know what is up next week and i want to hear from larry!

this episode with victoria speed dating: what the HELL was she wearing (and her friend's dress was not much better). that tent like ugly mess was the most unflattering garbage bag she could have worn. and theresa said she liked it in the store. what the heck???

and vicky the topknot on your head is hideous. you are a young girl. go to the gym with your mom and get yourself a good haircut. your mother can well afford it..

also, it looked like at the end, a lot of the men on this speed dating excursion seemed to be way too old to be doing this with these very  young girls. what are they, like 20? i saw at least two bald/balding men sitting there who did not look all that prematurely bald.

The organizers really can't filter out for age in these types of events. Generally young men don't consider speed dating until they're in their late 20s. And Victoria is 23 (!).

just watched the last show of  the season. still don't know what the marital problem is but i was seriously pissed hearing larry tell his friend about his petty , in contrast, marital woes after said friend lets us know he has a life threatening condition and has to be on dialysis 3 entire days a week! really?? why did they choose to have him talk about this in this way? it really seemed wrong and i for one had no sympathy. your friend may die, even if he does ever get a kidney transplant, it's no guarantee he is out of the woods, he is seriously ill. and the producers thought this was the right scene for larry to speak? pretty gross.

anyone know where to find out what the real story is? yes, i'm nosey but she put it out there and now i want details!

Yes, that was an extremely odd conversation with Larry and his ill friend. Almost makes me think this potential split between Larry and Theresa is producer driven. If the story is true, we'll see it in the tabloids and TMZ. No need to wait for next season of LIM.

Maybe Larry and his biker friends can/will do a fund raiser for his buddy who is on dialysis.

Yeah, I think it's for real after seeing the article.  I think the reason it looks fake is because they engineered those conversations as a way of communicating the news to the audience.  They figured that was more interesting than just telling the audience outright.

I just saw the first episode of the new season.  They act like there's "no particular reason" for their separation but then Larry says he felt he got too little attention from her because of her career (which he says he doesn't begrudge her from pursuing), so there's a reason right there.  And I think there's more to it they won't reveal like maybe he found a girlfriend so now Theresa also feels rejected.

i just saw it also. she is so full of shit. no particular reason! it looks obvious to me. just what you said. larry was left behind. she got way too "hollywood". i don't even know why she is still living in that modest house. you know she has to have millions. i want to know why he moved to california of all places. does he have family there or like you, i suspect a girlfriend.  it also felt like theresa is the one who wants this just by the way and the tone in which she was speaking . 

i pretty  much ff'd most of the readings unless something looks particularly interesting. i want to know more about the family. i wouldn't mind a "reality type" kaput family show. but i betcha larry ain't coming back, so. and why is there not much info on this online. it sure seems like she has a lot of fans out there. anytime on f.b. or twitter?

Not surprising since they cannot go out in public together because she gives readings wherever she goes.  How annoying is that!

I've always believed, from the first word of their marriage being on the rocks, that Larry got tired of the marriage always being about HER.

I recall an episode from a couple years ago when Larry wanted Theresa to go to one of HIS events with him and his fellow Harley riders. I think it was a charity event?  All Theresa did was bitch about having to put a helmet on that would mess up her hair. And then there was the episode with Larry Jr who had just moved out and she made his bedroom into a closet for her OTT shoe and clothing collection. Psychic medium or not, Theresa's "spoiled brat/I'm a Princess" attitude was very apparent many years ago.

I'd love to know if Larry is living in Orange County CA. We have quite a few bars for motorcycle enthusiasts (Cook's Corner in Trabuco Canyon-one of the best)

I still believe in her psychic abilities but I'm not liking her as a person anymore. She's NOT the only person on the planet who has her "gift". But I think those other psychics don't want to commercialize their gift. John Edward is just as gifted as Caputo but he chooses to not do TV anymore and, his ticket prices are affordable and much smaller venues than Theresa's. John Edward: 300 -400 and Theresa sells out arenas with 4,000 capacity. Good luck getting a reading with 4,000 other people present. But that's a huge paycheck for Theresa.

It certainly looks like after her success and full schedule she expected Larry to revolve around her life and be her little lap dog and "yes man", which seems to be an uncomfortable role for Larry, but who knows?  She may be partially overreacting to having spent most of her life revolving around him and the kids, and now expects a payback.  In some ways I want to break out my little violin for Larry, like now that the shoe is on the other foot he bitches that he's not the center of her attention and has to share her with the world.  Boo f'n hoo, now you know what a lot of women feel like in a relationship with an alpha man; just suck it up and be supportive.  Only on the other hand it does look like she went too far and too "Hollywood" with it so there is that.  He may have been OK with it to a point and it does look like she went a little over the top.

yep, she comes off as a spoiled princess .it's not cute, if it ever was, when you are over 50 years old. 

and i forget to mention.. what.....the.....f***...was she wearing at the fire island venue?! was it back to the 60's night? because if it wasn't , wow. not a good look the go go boots and the too tight sparkly dress.

No one knows what goes on in a marriage but hope Larry enjoys his alimony because T is at her highest earning potential to give him a nice quiet life away from her celebrity.

She could be a headliner in a smaller room at a casino in Las Vegas.

She has been healthy while he hasn't.

Marriages end and the people still have their children, their family, their friends that will connect them but hope both of them can move forward happily in their lives.

My take from last night was that Larry still wants to try to work things out, but Theresa is done. She  wouldn’t even look his way when they were at the winery. Who knows  if he did something hurtful to make her feel that way, but I felt bad for him while watching last night.

Theresa seems more emotionally distraught while Larry is no drama.

At least Theresa has the production crew and her work to move her forward instead of sitting at home.

Wonder if Victoria and Larry Jr. will be on the show this season....maybe join Theresa on the road and visit Larry in LA....

My mother in law has the same kind of fingernails.  She's from Theresa's generation and an Italian who grew up in Queens.  It always gives me pause when she holds my newborn.  She still has a flip phone because she can't use a smart phone with those nails.

I wonder if it's part of the contract with the production company (TLC?) that all aspects of her life/husband/kids etc must be included in filming. I sure wouldn't want my marital issues filmed for the world to see. And this whole break-up/separation with Larry is just taking up way too much time of what I watch this series for: Theresa's readings.

I'm hard pressed to think of a reality couple whose marriage hasn't ended (or certainly suffered) once fame got in the way. It's sad that Larry and Theresa are no different. They did seem very loving and a good match in the first few seasons. Judging by the first episode of this season, it did seem to me that perhaps Larry had been caught with his hand in the cookie jar, so to speak, and that's why they were splitting.

Fame didn't do anything to Josh.    His parents, by being lousy parents, allowed him to finger his little sisters, then sweep it under the rug rather than dealing with it, so he became a damaged adult.

just watched the 2 hour! latest episode. i'm pretty much fast forwarding the readings at this point. i guess i'm done with trying to believe this is real. maybe it she read me and told me things no one would know but that's never going to happen.

i came away thinking the break up is all on thersa and boy am i tired of hearing, there is no reason they just grew apart or whatever b.s. she is  spewing. the real reason has to be out there somewhere. i'm a little disgusted with myself that i  "care" so much but reality tv makes you a shallow gossip seeker!  also she reeeeeeeallly needs a new hair cut and color. she has a head of straw. and the claws! see. shallow.

Larry living in California and Theresa on a 8 week bus tour...both kids launched and on their own...

Guessing the kids, Larry will pop up on some of the tour stops...that will be the whole season...

As for the future of the Caputo marriage...what's the rush?...give them time to either work it out or split...no one knows what goes on in a marriage....

The whole family seem like nice people so wish them all the best...

Very well stated. They really do appear to be nice people simply (for example) their love for their pets and how they grieved over the loss of "Petey". They seem sincere. And Theresa's dad....very sweet and humble.

The way Theresa was talking in this episode it still sounds like she and Larry are in a struggle over her career.  She's busy now with 2 month tours and doesn't want to have to slow down to nurture that relationship.  Larry sounds like he's tired of being at home alone with no attention and doesn't want to spend his life on the road following her.  But who knows?  It also might be that they're covering up an affair that either one or both of them has had.  Larry even being on the show while they're having problems makes me wonder if some of this isn't being exaggerated for the show and ratings.   He certainly has something to gain from the show money.

I liked how Theresa felt empathy for the bullying victims.  I was a victim of really bad bullying as a child and I can attest to the fact that it was far more than a little schoolyard name calling or hair pulling.  Certainly the internet adds a whole new dimension to it but there are still "crucible" situations that can occur face to face that are just as bad.  I was routinely shamed and humiliated in front of an entire group every minute of every day for 2 years' worth of summer day camp and as a result even the "nice" kids shunned me plus the camp counselors ignored it even though they knew it was going on.  Of course this was 50 years ago and there was zero consciousness back then about bullying.  How fortunate for the young people Theresa visited that they have a support group to deal with their experience.  I am still dealing with it in therapy after all these years.  The wounds were that deep.

I look at her actions and see her providing comfort to those who need it. That's a gift. Not everyone can do it. So why shouldn't she get paid for it? It's not like she withholds her gifts unless you pay, as we see her do spontaneous readings as well. (Granted, this is television and we don't know what is authentic and what is staged.) Lawyers and doctors also take money from vulnerable people, so I guess in your eyes they must be despicable too.

I can't disagree with your belief that Theresa is a "charlatan". But the definition of charlatan also describes many (but not all) religious leaders of many churches: catholic, LDS, scientology, christian. They prey on people who think their specific religion will assure them everlasting life in some place called "heaven" and they have no problem taking "donations" from their congregation. We all know nobody knows what happens to us after we die. And we all have the freedom to choose what we want to believe.
