I have a friend who waited over a year to get a reading from John(privately not on the show) and when she arrived for her appointment he was getting ready to go to lunch. He stopped where she was sitting asked her if she was hungry---took her to lunch and gave her a reading at lunch and told her he was not going to charge her because he knew she didn't have the money.
Sylvia Brown is accurate, but she has a tendency to go froot loops sometimes. She is arrogant at times too.
I believe in both of them and also in James Praugh(sp?), and even that animal psychic, (but she is weird). I have had similar experiences myself. So I know it is not fake. But I would never go public with anything like that because it will always call your legitimacy and sanity into question.
