Monica Ten-Kate is just another typical girl going to college. She has friends, goes on dates, pulls all-nighters and hangs out with her roommates. The only thing that’s different about Monica is that she talks to dead people – and they respond! Not only that, but Monica is a real person and ABC Family’s new series, Monica the Medium (Tuesdays, 8/7C) is an hour-long, unscripted show that follows her through both sides of her life: the mundane and the supernatural.
Recently, Monica spoke with a group of bloggers/journalists about her life and her gift. It made for an interesting experience.
