Why I Hate Sylvia Browne

I bet you thought it was because she predicted President Obama would not be re-elected.Nope. How about the time she predicted Bill Clinton was falsely accused in the Lewinsky scandal? Nope.

It is because a desperate mother traveled to New York to tell her story on The Montel Williams Show. She went to talk to bullshitter psychic Sylvia Browne to see if she could get insight into the disappearance of her daughter – Amanda Berry.

This is part of the transcript:

Louwana Miller: Can you tell me if they’ll ever find her? Is she out there?

Sylvia Browne: She’s — see, I hate this when they’re in water. I just hate this. She’s not alive, honey. And I’ll tell you why, here we go again. Your daughter was not the type that would not have called you.


On April 21, 2003, Amanda Berry left her job never to be seen again. On Monday, Amanda and two other missing girls were found alive.

Amanda’s poor mother died in 2006. Doctor’s said it was heart failure. Her daughter, Beth had said she died of a broken heart, caused by Mandy’s disappearance and exacerbated by a recent visit on The Montel Williams Show where a psychic told her that Mandy had been murdered.

Imagine the a parent’s anguish of being led to believe what this charlatan psychic told her. The last two years of her life must have been unbearable. Would it have been so hard for the bitch Sylvia Browne to say “I am not sure” and give the poor woman a glimmer of hope? I guess, it was. Telling the truth is hard for this fraud psychic.

I also believe con artist  psychic Sylvia Browne is dangerous. How? In the past, she has claimed to have provided information to police departments and the FBI as a psychic detective. If she’s telling people (like she did Amanda’s mother) that someone is dead, they may not follow through on a case.

Is there anything swindler Sylvia Browne can be formally charged with here? I hope so, but sadly I doubt it.She must be laughing all the way to the bank at all the gullible people paying up the ass for her psychic readings and buying enough of her books to make her a bestselling author. 

Did you know? Sylvia Browne acquired the surname Brown from Kenzil Dalzell Brown during the third of her five marriages (I wonder if she predicted she would be a failure at marriage, too), and added a final “e” after she was indicted on security fraud charges In 1992, Browne was convicted of investment fraud and grand theft (did the phony predict that?)


Only One Of Them Has Received An Award For Writing (Hint: It’s the good-looking one)

To be fair, I hate all psychics. John Edward, James Van Praagh, Miss Cleo, etc.

Although Tangina Barrons in “Poltergeist” was cool. But, that was the movies.


I like Nostradamus very much. The kick-ass double CD from Judas Priest, not the visionary.



One thought on “Why I Hate Sylvia Browne

  1. I was certainly a fan..book holder/reader of Sylvia Browne. …but with this Amanda Berry story…so horribly sad for that mom. Had she not been told what she was…? Who knows maybe she would have fought to stay alive and find her daughter. Thank God though…and a wonderful neighbor for rescuing her and the other. Hopefully, the rest of their lives will be happy for them.

    Great piece..
