Fake Psychic Lies to Woman About Her Dead Parents

In case you’ve been under a rock, Sylvie Browne is the jerk who appears on Montel every Wednesday to pretend she can talk to dead people and see the future. Today, she told a fan that the woman’s mother was using her dying moments to communicate the fact that the woman’s father was not really her father. After a bit of thought, Sylvia realized that wasn’t vile enough, so she added that the woman’s real father was just a passing fling.

Enjoy! I mean, try not to lose all faith in humanity!

Thanks to Lisa for capturing the hideous monster in all her evil glory.

Oh, and for more forehead-slapping hilarity, check out this second clip of the MAGICAL BATTERY-LESS BIG MOUTH BILLY BASS WHAT WARNS OF DANGER!

  1. I've spotted a trend that I think is very promising. This repulsive toad-woman's gravelly voice gets deeper and deeper every time I hear her. Extrapolating, she should drop to infrasonic in about a year and, hallelujah, nobody will be able to hear her any more.

  2. Firstly: I agree with all the above.

    Specifically: Rockingham, good point. Passing along "bad" news is definitely a sneaky trick for increasing credibility, plus it fits into the blunt, straight-shooting character Sylvia plays on stage.

  3. Ah, and yes, my deepest apologies to those of you consuming lunch while browsing Skepchick today. However, flashing the face of the beast every now and again serves to remind you all of the eeeevil we fight! Out of those armchairs, defenders of reason!

  4. >>"Passing along “bad” news is definitely a sneaky trick for increasing credibility,"

    I was about to say "But surely, if the person concerned has a DNA test and finds out Sylvia's wrong, won't that damage her credibility, then remembered the sickening string of past predictions that turned out to be plainly wrong..

    Evidently her audience and the people who give her stage-room don't really care much if she lies, since they're too into the whole thing to notice, or just consider her good business.

    I wonder, do the TV shows she appears on have advertisement breaks, and if so, what kind of snake-oil gets sold during them?

  5. >>"But it’s a very comfy chair. And it has a soft pillow on it."

    The conjunction of "Sylvia Browne" and "soft pillow" brings certain mental imagery to my mind.

    Is anyone psychic enough to guess what they are?

  6. Does Sylvia Browne eat the pillows? Because I think she's had one too many.

    I think it's sad that anyone would believe her. Sadder than she would say horrible things to people without a second thought, knowing she's a liar.

    There are just too many people… and not enough ammo – I mean, time. :)

  7. The second clip definitely reminds me of the Feynman story where he had a dream his grandmother died and then he called his parents and she was just fine. Oh, and did anyone else notice how Browne said "I'm not saying you were a skeptic" like it's a dirty word?
