If you never had a chance to watch the supernatural drama Medium on NBC, don’t get too down on yourself. Yes, the show got many noms for Hollywood’s most coveted awards (and won an Emmy), and Patricia Arquette did a fabulous job portraying real-life medium Allison Dubois. But why watch an actress pretend she can see ghosts when you can meet someone who claims they actually can?

Allison Dubois, the real-life inspiration for Medium, was recently featured on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but if you’re into the crystal-ball gazer thing, head to Krave this weekend to meet her face to face. Ms. Dubois herself will be conducing a Valentine’s Love & Relationship Seminar at the gay nightclub this Saturday. Select audience members will have the opportunity to ask the medium about past loves, relationships and more at this very unique Valentine’s Day event.

Whether you’re dying for the closure you never received or just want to party it up with the diviner (and surrounding spirits)—Dubois will also host the nightclub’s Heart On Valentine’s Day party following the event—head to Krave this Saturday and get spiritual.

Largest Tour to Date Offers Fascinating Insight Into the Afterlife;
“I hope everyone who comes will leave with a more clear and serene understanding of life after death”

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Allison DuBois, the inspiration for CBS’s hit TV series MEDIUM, begins her largest tour ever, offering audiences in more than a dozen cities in the U.S., Canada and Australia the opportunity to reconnect with those who have passed on. DuBois, who is a consultant for the series and a best-selling author, will bring audiences new insight into the afterlife during the FAMILY CONNECTIONS TOUR, which is her largest tour to date and her first to take her to Australia.

“This is an opportunity to reach more families than ever, especially those who are experiencing difficulty coping with the death of a loved one,” DuBois said. “It’s a chance to come together and reconnect with those who have passed on, and to reach out to those who are hurting.”

An internationally respected medium, DuBois has personally conducted more than 5,000 readings. In addition to the FAMILY CONNECTIONS TOUR, she is also writing her fourth book. DuBois is also the author of the New York Times best sellers, Don’t Kiss Them Goodbye (2005), We Are Their Heaven (2006) and Secrets of the Monarch (2007), which were also best-selling titles internationally.

Fraud. Liar. Con Artist. These are some of the names Allison DuBois has been called. She simply calls herself a "Medium," and so do many fans of the CBS drama by the same name, which is based on Allison's life. She speaks to dead people, and she doesn't care if you don't believe her.

So she says, Allison is able to speak to those who have crossed over to the great unknown and reconnect them to their living loved ones. Not only that, for years she's been working with police to solve murder cases by communicating with victims from beyond the grave to fill in missing evidence. She's been an influential part of finally closing many cold cases, and has no problem that some of the perpetrators she helps to nab end up on death row - a surprise considering that could literally come back to haunt her. And by the way, she does all that crime fighting for free.

We chatted with Allison, a recent transplant to L.A., and found that for someone with such seemingly superhuman powers, she is incredibly down to earth, greeting her almost God-like ability with an "I am what I am" shrug. She has a sarcastic sense of humor, doesn't take herself too seriously and is completely candid about what she can and can't do. She even believes that skepticism about her psychic abilities is a healthy expression of critical thinking. No matter what, one thing her doubters can't accuse her of is ambiguity. In our (slightly abridged) interview with her below, Allison gets specific about what dead people show and tell her, what really happens after we die, and her idea of God.

'It's Ugly. It's Vindictive. It's This Case,' Baby Gabriel will be found', says renowned medium Allison DuBois. DuBois, whose psychic gifts form the basis for the hit CBS television series "Medium," sat down with CBS 5 News to share her impressions of the case surrounding missing baby Gabriel Johnson, who was last seen with his mother, Elizabeth Johnson, the day after Christmas in San Antonio, Texas.

Johnson sits in a Maricopa County jail on kidnapping charges relating to the case. "I feel like (Gabriel will) be found," DuBois said. "It does feel like helicopters are already overhead; it's a place where they're looking." In the 90-minute interview, DuBois called Johnson's trip to San Antonio a "power play."

If you have a dead relative or loved one you've been meaning to talk to, you might want to drop $95 for clairvoyant Allison Dubois's Family Connections Tour, which hits Houston February 17.

Perhaps best known as the basis for the TV show Medium, in which she's portrayed by Patricia Arquette, DuBois has claimed to help tons of people get in touch with those who have crossed over, as well as assist law enforcement agencies on murder cases. (You can read more about some of these claims in this feature from our sister paper in Phoenix).

When Hair Balls caught up with DuBois this week, she told us that she works differently from other people who see dead people, in that she prefers working with those whose lost ones have shuffled off this mortal coil under unpleasant circumstances, like murder or suicide.

Allison DuBois couldn't believe that someone had bid $10,000 at a Junior League of Phoenix Inc. silent auction to have dinner with her and her husband, Joe, at Marriott's Camelback Inn in Paradise Valley.

DuBois joked that for that amount of money she would have to bring her three daughters to the dinner as well. "That's a lot of pressure," she said with a laugh. "We'll see how that works out. They're pretty well-behaved."

The Phoenix psychic medium, author and lecturer was the keynote speaker at the Junior League of Phoenix's first Valley Impact fundraising luncheon Thursday at the Camelback Inn. DuBois praised the Junior League's 75 years of philanthropy, including its mission to promote and sponsor early child-intervention programs.

An Official CBS Interview (apart of their "The Spirit of Friday Night Sweepstakes" Promotion and Website) with the cast and crew of MEDIUM on their impressions of what the real Allison Dubois (her gift and family) verses the Allison Dubois played by Patricia Arquette. Also in other news, CBS has finally gotten around to uploading the Episodic Stills of the next two episodes coming up this and next friday. Now I'm just waiting with giddy antcipation for that website to upload the images. Been so lonely without MEDIUM news.

I was just over on Allison DuBois’ website, and it looks as though the woman upon which Medium is based is going to be making appearances around the country starting in a few days. Since some of you are fans of the real-life medium, and were drawn to the show because of her or vice-versa, I thought you may be interested in checking her out. Have any of you seen her in person before? What happens at one of her appearances? Did you start watching the show because of her, or did you become interested in her because of the show? I’m very interested in your Allison DuBois experiences, so if you have any, please go ahead and leave them in the comments.

Here’s her schedule for the rest of the year:

I was reading through some of my Google Alerts and I got a link to a blog that stated that Allison DuBois was at Comic Con 2009, promoting either Medium or yet another TV Show based on the Paranormal (which confuses me). Does anyone have any more information to confirm this, 100%?

...The other person attending the panel was Allison DuBois who is the real woman behind the series Medium (which by the way is now on CBS). She has a new show coming out where she works with other psychic investigators and law enforcement to help solve crimes (apparently it's different from a lot of the other shows like it because they actually found bodies so that's pretty cool for all of us who are interested the shows about real crimes).


EDIT: Found a YouTube Video. Her Segment starts at 2:33 and ends at 3:09.

A Series of Five & Four Part Interviews dubbed "The Truth Behind Medium", Ran, I think, during the Second Season on Sci-Fi UK (I'm Guessing given the archive footage they use to refernce the show inbetween speaking). One features Paticia Arquette going over the various details of her role as Allison Dubois, her relationship with the cast and crew (directors, mostly), and her encounters with the real Allison Dubois. The other interviews feature Allison DuBois going over her gift as a Medium and her reaction to the show itself. I've probably watched these videos a dozen times over, they're really enjoyable.

There's a Message in the Medium... )

Margo Martindale.

Okay, you guys remember the Psychic Allison goes to see in the Season One Episodes, "Pilot", "Sickness and Adultery", and one last time in "Blood Relation" (Season 3)? Well, for the longest time I wondered what her name was given that she wasn't refered to by Allison or anyone else, by name. I checked Margo Martindale's profile and they credited her as "Catherine". Is this the character's actual name (that I suspect showed up during the credits, when you watch the DVDs) or something someone just jotted down so they didn't have to call her "The Psychic/Medium"?

In other news: I just realized she was one of the nurses (or whatever their called) in rehab movie, 28 Days (2000) with Sandra Bullock. Oh, and did anyone think the character Missouri Moseley (Loretta Devine) from the S1 Supernatural Episode "Home" was an unconscious response to "Catherine" in Medium, despite the subject matter both shows tend be delving in?

For some reason I NEVER noticed this before. But last night as I was watching the last episode of Medium on-line at I noticed something in the end credits I'd never seen before. Allison Dubois is a consultant for the show. O_o

You mean there's a REAL Allison Dubois?! Did anyone else know this? Who is she? Is she LIKE the character on the tv show? Does this mean that the characters I love so much are based on reality in some way, shape or form?

Someone PLEASE illuminate me!
