In an exclusive clip from Monday’s episode of Long Island Medium, Theresa Caputo channels The Real Housewives of New York City star’s husband Richard, who passed away in 2011. “Thank god there’s tissues,” Medley tells Caputo before her reading begins. “I’m gonna start crying now and you haven’t even said anything yet.” “Hopefully they’ll be good tears,” Caputo replies, before asking Medley about her husband. “Did he like hankies, or did you always make him wear a matching hankie?” “Yes, I did” Medley replies, before adding that “no one would know that.” “He says, ‘Nobody knew our relationship better than we did,’ ” Caputo remarks, speaking for Richard. “He says, ‘And I wouldn’t have traded what we had for anything.’ ” “It really was a great friendship,” Medley tearfully replies. “And that is the sad part because that’s irreplaceable.” “I don’t think there’s a day that goes by when I still don’t think of him at some moment,” she adds. “When Richard came into my life, I really didn’t even want to even get married again, but he was such a great friend and mentor. He was a real academic. He dealt with a lot of political figures but really enjoyed life and that’s what made it so great and that’s what made it so sad when he died.” Long Island Medium airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET on TLC.
