‘Monica the Medium’ is Monica Ten-Kate. The Arlington, Virginia native is a college student at Pennsylvania State University and the star of the new ABC Family reality TV show, Monica the Medium. Yes, she talks to dead people. But not exclusively. She has a living, breathing roommate, Anne.
“Coming in as Monica’s new roommate this year was a huge change of perspective for me,” says Anne, who comes from “a very agnostic background.” Anne says she had never heard of nor seen a medium before meeting Monica, which is difficult to believe considering all of the TV shows that feature mediums. But Anne does say convincingly that since meeting Anne, she’s now thinking about her spirituality (which she’s never done before). Monica the Medium airs Tuesdays at 8pm on ABC Family.
