In 2004 celebrity psychic, Sylvia Browne declared that little Amanda Berry, then missing, was dead. The psychic told Amanda’s Mother, Louwana Miller, while on a Montel William’s show, the dreadful news. I’m sure that must have closed the case for most of you, but lo and behold, Amanda, her 6-year-old daughter (fathered by her recently arrested captor), and fellow kidnapping victims, Gina Dejesus and Michelle Knight have been found alive in a house of horrors in Ohio and have now been reunited with their families.
A site that I never even thought about existing, The Committee For Skeptical Inquiry, says that despite Sylvia Brown’s claims that she has an 85% success rate, they have discovered that while doing a study in 2010 of the 115 predictions she has made on the Montel William’s show, she actually has a zero percent success rate. Womp womp womp.
The whole thing isn’t a laughing matter indeed, but the big news flash that celebrity psychics that specialize in being featured on trashy talk shows could be making up their predictions is the least shocking part of the whole story.
