Does the ’90 Day Fiancé ‘production hire mediums to spice up the storylines?
90 Day Fiancé: Forever? fans are starting to wonder if the producers at TLC or Sharp Entertainment are hiring these mediums to move the storyline forward. It seems that these 90 day fiancé mediums are less there to predict the future and more to stir up trouble.
Angela Deem’s medium, Tracey Woolterton
In the July 16 episode of 90 Day Fiancé: Forever?, Angela Deem spoke with her psychic, Tracey Woolterton, about her husband, Michael Ilesanmi. Angela said, “Tracey has told me things that nobody knows, and I know this lady here has a gift.” She asked Tracey, the psychic, to do a map reading. Angela wanted to know if Michael was being honest about his intentions to come to America. That’s when the psychic says Tracey says Michael is treating his relationship like a “deal.” Angela wonders, as well as the cameras: “Is he trying to go to the United States?”
Tracey then read for Michael. She said Michael is focusing on “a lot of material things”. That’s when she tells Michael that Angela feels like she’s fighting for her position in her life, and if he doesn’t “fix it” Michael will lose Angela. She then tells Michael that “there is a big communication problem” between him and Angela. After reading from clairvoyant Tracey, Michael and Angela have a heart-to-heart conversation; Michel apologizes. After weeks of fighting, the couple finally reconnect during a romantic virtual date in a bubble bath.
Medium Maria Shaw by Stephanie Davidson
Of course, who could forget the original psychic, Maria Shaw, who appeared on 90 day fiancé Season 8 as a friend and confidante of Stephanie Davidson? After being separated from her lifelong lover, Ryan, for over 10 months, Stephanie decided to fly to Belize and see him again. “Sugar mama” Stephanie had bought Ryan thousands of dollars in gifts and was ready to see Ryan again, but first she wanted a reading from her psychic. Stephanie doubted Ryan would be faithful during the 10-month separation due to the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19).
While reading, medium Maria told Stephanie that Ryan is doing “devil’s work ” and that she predicted that Ryan’s family was pressuring him to marry a younger woman to have children. Maria also drew the “chariot” card, which meant to her that Ryan had “another woman around”. However, the psychic not only advanced the story of Stephanie cheating on Ryan with her cousin Harris, but it was actually the last straw that broke the relationship in Belize. Stephanie told Ryan about her psychic’s predictions, and he panicked and left the complex.
Some Fans Believe TLC / Sharp Entertainment Is Hiring Psychics To Advance “90 Day Fiancé” Plots
The two mediums that appear on 90 day fiancé seem suspicious because the two have previously worked with other TLC / Sharp Entertainment celebrities. According to Soap Dirt, Angela’s clairvoyant, Tracey, had done previous readings with Honey Boo Boo, her mother, June Shannon. And she also did readings for others 90 day fiancé stars like Paul Staehle and Darcey Silva.
According to Maria Shaw’s website, she is known for her “incredible accuracy and predictions” for some of Hollywood’s hottest stars. She also appeared in The Anna Nicole Show, Tony Danza’s Show, Life and Style, Fox, Mr. Personality NBC, and more. The celebrity reading list includes Lisa Rinna, Antonio Sabata Jr., Tony Danza, Jenny McCarthy, and Larry the Cable Guy.
To fans, it seems odd that the two psychics, who already work with famous clients, are “friends” with these TLC stars even before they are famous. For some fans, this is a sign that these psychics are in fact hired by TLC or Sharp Entertainment to further or spice up outdated stories. Quite honestly, maybe TLC could have made the psychic costumes a little more compelling to audiences.
