Things got emotional when The Hollywood Medium‘s Tyler Henry performed a psychic reading for Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, whose uncle passed away. The Jersey Shore star broke down when Henry, 20, asked about Veronica – who was her uncle’s fianceé.

“Everyone has a bit of a preconceived idea of Snooki from Jersey Shore,” Henry said during a recent visit to PEOPLE Now. “But when I sat down with Snooki, I felt like we connected with Nicole the person. We got to see a whole other side of her.”

He added that the pair still keep in touch, and that her reading has stuck with him.

“She was one of the most profound readings of the entire show,” said Henry.

Hollywood Medium with Tyler Henry airs Sundays (10 p.m. ET) on E!
