Jennifer Love Who? Move over ghost whisperers, because TLC is bringing you a woman who talks to angels instead, probably because most ghosts are dicks. TLC’s newest reality show, Angels Among Us is here. It’s about a woman named Rosie Cepero and she can "connect with angels," guardian angels to be exact. I don’t know if TLC has just run out of ideas or if they are bored of all the Duggars finally, but this show is apparently for real.
I personally don’t believe in that, mainly because I believe that my deceased family members have far better things to do than sit around and help me make good life decisions (considering most of my life decisions are pretty terrible). However, if you are into ghosts and angels, Rosie Cepero is perfect for you. The show airs on TLC every Sunday after Long Island Medium, which by the way, is basically the exact same show. I honestly can’t really tell the difference between the two.
Now, I have only watched the exclusive preview on TLC thus far to grasp what is actually happening but here are the highlights of Angels Among Us.
First, she dramatically tells us that most people believe angels have "diapers and halos and wings and their flying around like that" (cue her arms flailing around to signal flying). Rosie quickly sets the record straight though, she says angels look just like "You and I." Phew, I was super worried a cherub-looking baby was flying next to me at all times. Thanks for clearing that one up, girl.
Second and most importantly, she stops a girl at what looks to be a Party City and says "Do you believe in angels?" Then she proceeds to rub her hand and say,"It's okay, you can indulge in ice cream." Umm, okay?
So, now it’s time to meet Rosie. Who is this mysterious angel whisperer?
She’s Got a Bunch of Men in Her Life
Cepero lives with in upstate New York with her husband of 32 years, George and their three sons: Frankie, Georgie, and Joey. “I am blessed with four amazing men in my life. They are the love of my life,” Rosie says. Her children have all been skeptical of her “power,” but have all come to believe it. Frankie said that one night his mom told him that his guardian angel came to her and told her to not let him go out that night. He did anyways and got into a terrible car accident.
She has a pet pig named Brooney
Capero and her family live on a 126-acre farm with chickens and livestock and all the farm fixings. She is especially in love with one person specifically though, ”The most special prize package of it all is my pig, Brooney. Mess with Brooney, I cut you.” You heard the lady. She can talk to your guardian angel, you better not mess with her.
Her power is genetic
She’s not the only one with the power. It’s genetic according to the angel whisperer. ”My mother, her mother, her great grandmother [all had the same gift] – it’s a very special gift of connecting,” she told Channel Guide Magazine.
There’s warmth and color when angels are near
She explained to Channel Guide Magazine what it’s like when an angel comes to her. “What happens is that beautiful light shows up. It looks like a spotlight. It’s a different color and the angels come through, they move forward. I feel really hot — radiant heat comes through — and that’s how I make the connection.” Honestly, I wish an angel was near me sometimes cause my feet are always really cold.
She Says her guardian angel helped her beat breast cancer
Cepero discusses the experience in her Channel Guide interview. “About seven years ago, my guardian angel, who is my dad, appeared to me in a dream and he told me that I needed to check my left breast because I had cancer. I said, ‘Wow, OK.’ I woke up and told my husband that I had a warning from my guardian angel. I immediately made an appointment and they told me that everything was fine [this was after a mammogram and ultrasound and a confirmation letter that stated everything was OK]. I had the same dream again, and my dad actually appeared next to my bed and said, ‘Change doctors now.’ I changed doctors and I met Dr. Adora Fou and told her about the dream and she believed me and said she would help me. … [After performing another mammogram that showed a questionable area] we did a biopsy and a week later I found out I had breast cancer. … I’m the matriarch of the family and I knew this would devastate the family, but with my faith and my guardian angels, we beat the breast cancer.”
