      I have seen him on TV before. I am no psychic. I am a skeptic and believer at the same time. I do know a medium here on Long Island who was quite convincing that told me that Edward was for real. He apparently knew him personally. I tend to believe what he said because he himself knew things about my family that could never be looked up on a google search. So it is hard to believe he himself was a fraud. But who knows. I know I don't have that ability, nor do I want it. So I will never know for sure.

      I hadn't heard of him before, but to be honest the word fake does come to mind! to talk to the dead celebs is just tacky, and anybody could do it, people like him make me so mad. I have been psychic all my life and know for a fact that you can't turn on the psychic stuff when it suits you, it can only work bit like a faulty tv signal, so no, fake! lol!
