Sylvia Browne, Montel’s Favorite Fortune-Teller, Dies at 77

sylvia-browneSylvia Browne, well-known psychic and star of the Montel Williams HealthMaster infomercial, has died at age 77. Read the story at TMZ.

Her death dashes the hopes of the thousands who had earnestly desired a reunion of the entire cast of the HealthMaster infomercial, including Sylvia Browne, Montel Williams, Forbes Riley, and the fat kid who drank green sludge–but there’s still a chance they could contact old Sylvia with a seance. Until then please enjoy this video of highlights from Sylvia’s appearance on Montel’s Living Well infomercial:

After seeing that video, you wouldn’t need to be psychic to predict that Sylvia Browne was going to keel over at any moment.

A 100% accurate thank you to reader Thomas for letting us know about the death of Montel’s favorite fortune-teller.

  • Considering she sounded like a real-life cigarette hag, and perhaps the inspiration for Hazel from the Magic Bullet, I’m surprised she didn’t die sooner.

  • What’s she the one who said Amanda berry was dead? Not to show any disrespect to the dead but… at least she won’t be scamming people with her “abilities” anymore.

  • Yup, she was the one who told Amanda Berry’s mom that Amanda was dead. Berry’s mother died from heart failure a year or so after the reading. I Googled Sylvia Browne + Amanda Berry and the first result was Browne’s official website where she acknowledged she was wrong but that the Berry family supposedly contacted Browne and said there were no ill feelings.

    Like all awesome psychics who are confronted when they give people wrong answers, Browne said that she gets stuff wrong because “only God is right all of the time” but she gets more things right than she does wrong. My guess is Browne’s infallible spirit connection was out on a smoke break when she read for Amanda’s mom and Browne is now kicking said entity’s ass for slacking on the job.
