Earlier this month, I wrote a review for celebrity psychic Sylvia Browne’s latest book "Afterlives of the Rich and Famous." The book deals with the afterlife activities of various celebrities, including Elvis Presley, Patrick Swayze and Michael Jackson.
Sylvia obtained the information for this book by channeling her Spirit Guide, Francine, a resident of the Other Side. While Francine used Sylvia’s body as a vessel, Linda Rossi recorded what Francine said about the deceased stars. The result of these recordings is "Afterlives of the Rich and Famous."
Sylvia was kind enough to ask Francine about the comings and goings of some celebrities not included in her book just for TheCelebrityCafe. Here is what Francine has to say about Tony Curtis, Lena Horne, Lynn Redgrave and Rue McClanahan.
Tony Curtis made it to the Other Side very quickly because in his later years, he became more introspective and closer to his daughter, of whom he was very proud. When he first crossed over, he met friends and family, Jack Lemmon in particular with whom he reminisced about their movie, Some Like It Hot. He also met with Marilyn Monroe.
Tony is now spending his time painting, which he enjoyed in life during his later years.
In life he would have bouts of depression, always striving for the best. On the Other Side he is at peace and full of joy Like so many of our deceased loved ones, he checks in on his friends and family still here, especially his daughter.
He hasn’t made up his mind yet whether he wants to come back into another life. Tony wasn’t deeply religious in life, but is now very spiritual.
Lena Horne, an elegant, beautiful lady, crossed over very quietly and met some of the people she knew in show business, especially many of the “big band” men. She is still somewhat of a loner on the Other Side, not because she doesn’t love people, but she also likes her down time. She tirelessly works for African-American acceptance and rights. This, of course, stems from the fact that even though she was a very elegant and popular entertainer, in the early days of her career she was treated very poorly. She often had to come into places through a back door, couldn’t stay in some of the finer hotels nor eat with other non-African-American individuals. She holds no animosity about this; she just keeps working toward total equality everywhere. When I asked her if she didn’t think things were much better today, she replied, “Yes, but we still have a long way to go.”
On the Other Side, she is exquisitely beautiful as she was here and 30 years old. She is truly a "knock-out."
Lynn Redgrave was from a family steeped in stage and screen. When she crossed over she wanted to meet her niece, Natasha, right away. I think she took her death as hard as her mother, Vanessa. Lynn was sick then, too, when Natasha passed and put up a valiant battle.
Lynn really preferred stage to screen acting and was very into family, who misses her terribly, as we all do. She was determined to be upbeat and was never in competition with her sister. She felt very bad when she first came over because she had suffered so much loss in life.
Lynn teaches drama to souls who are in performing arts, which I think answers the question that’s often asked if someone can truly be born with their talent Like the Barrymores, some entities just come into life with it. She also loves to dance on the Other Side.
She says she is not coming back into another life.
Rue McClanahan really wanted to stay until the end. She met up with Bea Arthur and many of her costars from stage and screen. Rue was very ill during the last six months of her life. She felt she spent too much time looking for all the right men during her life, but she did meet her soulmate, Kenneth, who was on the Other Side. Rue didn’t like being alone and never found the truly right man in her life.
She is now doing a lot of writing. In life she was close with Bea Arthur and Estelle Getty, but not very close with Betty White, who she felt was too self-important. That feeling is gone now and she wishes White the best in her new-found career.
Rue also felt she never found true happiness in life. Her greatest ability was her comedic personality and she still keeps people laughing, especially when she, Bea and Estelle get together along with family and friends.
She doesn’t want to come back into life again.
