Long Island Medium star Theresa Caputo and her husband, Larry, recently separated after 28 years of marriage. They hinted at stress in their marriage in the season finale of the show, which aired in December. And now, in the new season premiere that aired Sunday night, they both talked about their separation.
“Right now, we’re taking it day by day, and that’s hard for me,” Theresa said on the show, tears welling up. “I mean, the tension was so bad here in the house, and it’s something that happened over time. It’s nothing that happened overnight. People can say whatever they want - it was my work, it was this, it was that - it was just, it happened. This is something that has happened over the years, and it is sad, and it f--cking sucks. That’s it.”
Larry also got emotional. “This, for me, is probably the hardest thing I’ve had to endure. I’ve been through a lot of trials and tribulations. This is the toughest,” he said. “Sometimes you have to put aside everybody else and say to yourself, ‘What’s good for me? What’s going to make me happy?' So whatever the outcome might be, I just want it to be positive.”
In Sunday night’s episode, Theresa and Larry visited a winery, and talk about how awkward the moment was. They also had a painful, emotional conversation about how their lives have changed over the years, and how they both were unhappy for different reasons. “There was a point that came where I was angry that I wasn’t getting the attention that I used to get from my wife, not realizing that she was making an effort and reaching out to me,” Larry said on the show.
Fans were devastated at the news of their separation, and sent their love and support on social media.
@long island medium @Larrycaputo Come on, please don’t let this show tear you apart, it’s not worth it. In however many years you’re not on tv the only thing you have left is each other. Don’t destroy 31 years over a few weeks of being on tv.- Kim S. of NY (@KimDSimonetti) April 9, 2018

I think you and Larry should work things out. You ‘be been together a long time. Everybody has problems. Ask God to help you and Larry.

In an interview with GoodHousekeeping.com, Theresa noted that people change over time, whether or not they’re in the public eye. “[We’re] working and finding our place. We’ve been together for a very long time. And people change. We all change,” she said. “None of us are the same we were 10 years ago, five years ago, regardless of our work or what we’re doing with our lives. We change, as people.”
