Call Miss Cleo Now! Throwback Thursday
Back when I was in high school, I was feeling myself because I didn’t have a bedtime anymore. As a natural night owl, I’d stay up til wee hours of the early night (like midnight) watching TV. That was when I got introduced to Miss Cleo the Psychic. Nothing says “Get your GOOFASS to bed” like the broadcasting of terrible infomercials and hers was the worst.
Miss Cleo was a
JaFAKEcan Jamaican psychic who used tarot cards to read you your future for the low low price of TOO MUCH DAMB MONEY! She’d tell you to “CALL MEH NAO!” with enthusiasm so she could solve your love and life issues. Chile, lemme refresh your memory.
Ma’am. No. Miss Cleo was neither Jamaican nor was she a psychic. She was just a terrible actress with a quick scheme and a gullible people to sell to. Homegirl’s real name is Youree Dell Harris and she was a part of the Psychic Readers Network. They made money hand over fist selling folks these bald-headed lies from fake ass shamans but Miss Cleo was one of the main ones I remembered.
A good mess! Did yall ever call in to her or know someone who did?
