The Real Housewives show us the real Allison DuBois

The real Allison DuBois is nothing like Patricia Arquette's character on 'Medium.' Instead, she is completely terrifying. Watch some of her greatest hits from 'The Real Houswives of Beverly Hills.'

As some of you know, I used to write/edit a Medium fansite called Medium Dreams. As I had to write multiple Medium-related posts per day, I would sometimes write about “the real” Allison DuBois, the woman upon whom the series is based. Her basic story follows that of the TV character (3 kids, married to an aerospace engineer, etc.) but that’s about the extent of the similarities.

The real Allison DuBois makes a living giving readings and seminars across the country, as well as by writing books. This is all in addition to whatever money she has gotten from the seven seasons Medium has aired, so she’s clearly doing very well for herself. They say money can’t buy you happiness, but as we learn from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, it can buy you some giant fake boobs and make you crazy as a shit-house rat.

I’ve never watched RHOBH before, but I had heard that Allison DuBois makes an appearance, since she’s friends with Camille Grammer (her soon-t0-be ex-husband Kelsey produces Medium). I had also heard that she makes a total ass of herself, which obviously is not the way I’ve seen her portrayed before, so I was curious.

What followed was a nearly incomprehensible hour of television, but the highlight was definitely Allison DuBois’s obvious descent into madness. This is a woman who has a very carefully-cultivated public image, but as soon as a few martinis and reality cameras get in front of her, it all goes away in a puff of electronic smoke.

I seriously don’t know what’s up with her, but as you’ll see from the 5-minute clip below, DuBois spends the entire dinner getting wasted, smoking an electronic cigarette like a crack pipe and insulting a table full of women whom she’s never met. It’s probably the most spectacular reality television trainwreck I’ve seen all year.

Here’s my favorite quote from the video:

“Well you know what? You are not interesting to me at all, so you can continue to be interested in me. That’s awesome. You have two legs too: you can walk.”

The best part is, the real shit-talking began after everyone left:

“I will shove this up her fucking ass just to prove a point– except I think she’d need a bigger one than this to even feel it.”

“Girl, bitch is a one-syllable word for a reason: it’s all they understand.”

And, because I couldn’t resist, some Allison DuBois Memorial .gifs. She may not be dead, but her image is.

I happened to catch this over the weekend on one of their many reairings. I couldn’t believe it for the same reasons that you were shocked. I imagine that her reps had to be upset with her. Alison came across as bat-shit crazzzyyyyy!! Camille made some comment before dinner about how Alison gets bad when she drinks..but whoa..wasn’t expecting that. I would think that if you saw her on that show, that you wouldn’t think of buying any book of hers or getting a reading from her because of how bad she came across. But as far as entertainment value..funny as hell!!!

I watched that episode too, and at first I was put off by the antics, but after thinking about it, I now have a different opinion. AD is first human, she is not a television character. Wouldn’t you be a bit jaded if all you did everyday of your life was to be a conduit? It must be draining, she/we all deserve to cut loose, it is not the end of the world. Alcohol was involved and everyone has their own limits/reactions, at the end of the day, who am I to judge anyone? AD on the other hand probably did see/feel that those gals do have shallow black hearts, they are on a show all about shallow material driven housewives. Remember, we all fall short, so let’s not focus on the splinter in somebody’s eye when we have a plank in our own. She does alot of good, god bless her.

ummmm, she makes a lot of money. SHe said if the real housewives had a chid missing she would not help them find the child…and honestly, GOD is spelled with a G, not a g. People say that Allison can not believe in an afterlife, or she would not behave in the way she does. Certainly, if God gave her this gift (and who else would) he would have chosen someone with compassion, no drinking problem, and a willingness to help missing children. Certainly with all her money, she woudn’t need to charge anymore (like God is ok with that?). Basically, I go with the “she’s an atheist, and not a NICE atheist, out to get what she can in life.

Jen,

I’m not a disbeliever, I do believe in psychic abilities…however Alison DuBois is not a true psychic. Please research her and the statements made from people she has claimed to have helped. She is a charlatan, which explains how off her remarks directed towards Kyle were. She just makes stuff up and says it with conviction so that it comes off as fact. “Know this” as she has said. Please read some of these articles before giving her too much credit. A person who provides false information for families in dire need while making money off it is very dangerous and detrimental in actually finding missing persons.

There is more information out there.,,

omg No amount of alcohol could make a lady act like this. She was devilish and had the nerve to say they would come crawling back to her if one of their children came up missing? no this lady is evil No excuses for her PLEASE

December 20, 2010 at 7:26 PM

Um – Jen Jen, are you actually serious? Wait – you actually, honestly believe this fake charlatan spends all her day being a “conduit,” and for this reason, she deserves to be exhausted? A conduit for what, exactly, other than constant lies and fabrications? In the 21st century, only a horribly bored person would actually believe in psychic powers. Doesn’t it stand to reason, that if she actually were psychic, she would have foreseen this dinner party going horrible awry and potentially permanently damning to her reputation and public image, and avoided it at all costs? Or made sure she didn’t drink? Or do you have some clever loophole pre-planned and at the ready to validate her behavior?
Psychics do not exist – only very motivated, very hungry manipulators.

For a professional “psychic” who claims to be a respected professional, this woman has a mouth and mannerisms that make a truck driver respectable. And for the Grammars to support her (I feel Kelsey’s wife pushed for this series) makes them look look amateurish and downs their respectibility.

December 21, 2010 at 2:52 PM

ohh also, didn’t she SEE that Kelsey was cheating? I mean, hello…?

Nope she’s a fake. And sadly, not as good an actress as the ever lovely Patricia Arquette.

December 22, 2010 at 1:37 PM

I am shocked at her behaviour, I was a fan of the show Medium, but cannot watch it anymore. I was mortified. How can someone who preaches about love, be such an anti christ in real life??? shes horrible and what she said about missing children, and shoving things up people arsxxxes and also about other womens husbands is so wrong. However the worst was at the end of the night where she said she knew when and where these people were going to die.Drunk or not, her behaviour was totally out of line. Is she a nice women? hmm i dont think so, I think she is nasty and should keep herself out of the headlines for sometime to come, no amount of spin doctoring is going to fix this one in a hurry.

December 23, 2010 at 12:59 AM

i will NEVER watch Medium or EVER buy anything from this Allison crazy woman. What a freak. She showed how evil she really is.

December 23, 2010 at 1:15 AM

I can’t believe how she behaved. I actually feel sorry for her 3 children and her husband. She should thank the actress who played her and kiss her career goodbye. No one can take her serious after the act she put on in Housewives. She was an pathetic fool, mean spirited, and looking for trouble. Anyone can forgive a stupid moment, but she was an abnoxious fool till the end. I won’t ever be able to take the show serious again. Too bad to because I really enjoyed it. You should apologize to all involved in the “dinner set up.” And then you and Camille should fall off the map!

December 25, 2010 at 11:54 PM

I also watched the episode and was mortified. There are not words strong enough to describe this woman. The ever so poised and lovely Patricia Arquette playing the part of Allison in the Medium series is the very opposite of this horrible, hateful, tactless, immature, fake electronic cigarette monster. I don’t think I can ever watch Medium again and enjoy the show as much as I have in the past. This changes my whole outlook on the character and I am very disappointed that I got to see the “true, real life” Allison. She seems very sad and pathetic trying to keep up with the popular crowd and making a fool of herself in the process. Camille is very fake and I really don’t even understand why she is on the show at all. She is not in the same league as the other women, she doesn’t have the poise or manners they have and she is in no way a “real housewife”! She is about to be a single mom as soon as Kelsey divorces her. He has got to be embarrassed, I don’t see how he can’t be….

December 26, 2010 at 8:32 PM

This Allison is a fake and a phony..and like her friend C amille a really horrible person

December 26, 2010 at 11:41 PM

I HAVE NEVER SEEN ONE PERSON GO SO FAR OFF THE DEEP END SO FAST, NEVER SEEN ANYONE SO SELF DISTRUCTIVE…AND THAT’S ONLY CAMILLE! WHAT ARE YOU THINKING CAMILLE? YOU HAVE MADE YOURSELF LOOK LIKE AN ENTIRELY SELF CENTERED, SELF SERVING. MANIPULATIVE MONSTER!
I DON’T KNOW HOW YOU MANAGED TO DO IT, BUT YOU HAVE MANAGED TO GO SO FAR OFF THE KOOK TRAIL THAT YOU EVEN MADE A LOATHSOME CHEATER SUCH AS KELSEY LOOK BETTER THAN YOURSELF…I MEAN, AFTER SEEING YOU AND ALL OF YOUR ENTITLED BRAT ATTITUDE, ONE BEGINS TO ROOT FOR KELSEY…YOU MAY HAVE MONEY, BUT YOU WILL NEVER FEEL THE WARMTH THAT TRUE LOVE CAN BRING, YOU ARE TOO SHALLOW, AND CRUEL FOR A GOOD MAN TO PUT UP WITH…
ALLISON…WHAT CAN I SAY? YOU HAVE JUST DUG YOUR OWN GRAVE…THE ONLY THING DEAD YOU WILL BE TALKING TO IS YOUR CAREER! SOMEONE WITH THAT MUCH HATE IN THEIR HEART HAS NO ROOM TO HEAR FROM ANYONES LOVED ONES…DO YOU REALLY BELIEVE IN A WOMAN WHO IS ELATED TO BE ABLE TO TELL WHEN YOU DIE, OR DIVORCE? SOMEONE WHO RELISHES IN YOUR SORROW? THINK ABOUT IT…PULL THE PLUG ON THIS CHICK! NO MORE BOOKS, TV, GIVE HER WHAT SHE WANTS…TO BE OFF THE CLOCK!!! PERIOD!

December 30, 2010 at 11:43 AM

well said I love this comment the best She is of the clock alright the coo coo clock

January 11, 2011 at 7:09 PM

I could not have said it any better! Well said, Ms. Diva, well said.

December 29, 2010 at 3:43 PM

If Alison Dubois doesn’t want the continuous attention and she is tired of being a “conduit” all the time, maybe she shouldn’t have her closest friends introduce her as Alison Dubois, the psychic that the show “Medium” is based on. That is one of the first things her friends say about her, if they hadn’t done that and just introduced her by name, none of the housewives would have known what she did and the whole push for a reading would not have come up. People who truly want to play down what they do don’t throw it into people’s faces. I’m pretty sure based on Alison’s zeal on creating conflict, that it would have ended up a trainwreck anyhow.

December 30, 2010 at 11:51 AM

also let me note that did you see the delight when Kim and (whatever her name is ) lol I am sorry nothing against her but the least favorite of all the housewives. I am in no way discrediting her just really forgot her name anyway did you see when Kim and her started fighting Camille and Allison both lite up with satisfaction.
And comment on Camille after Kyle was probbing for a reading Camille told Allison do it. Camille started this dinner party off with bringing up Faye being in Playboy. She cannot help herself from picking Kyle apart. Oh what is the deal with this guy on motorcycle that Camille looks at with GOO GOO eyes all the time by the way does Camille look cross eyed too u?

January 23, 2011 at 8:48 AM

I wonder what Patricia feels about this :)

February 12, 2011 at 11:53 PM

Patricia probably feels saddened knowing that her show will be likely be cancelled due to the self destructive antics of her “producer” and the sheer mean spirited viciousness of the person her character is based on. Watching a grown up mean girl try to pretend she had not orchestrated the entire meal of toxic energy and the “psychic” side-kick’s eyes light up with glee every time a mean word was said, stunned me. I felt like I literally watched evil energy spread across the room and infect everyone. And Camille, at the end of the evening pretending to be trying to calm down the fake psychic with the mouth of a truck driver, AFTER all the hate was said and spread was beyond unbelievable. The entire thing was done intentionally and for ratings.
Do she and kelsey produce this show?

Anyone, and I mean anyone, who would go to Allison DuBOis for a reading after seeing this episode, would have to be a masochist.

March 22, 2011 at 11:27 PM

You “seriously don’t know what’s up with her”? Really? She’s a drunk, a very mean-spirited drunk.

Sad that so many are so gullible as to believe in these charlatans, but it speaks volumes that they don’t even recognize alcohol laying bare a toxic bitch when they see one.
