Speaking of John “I chat with dead people” Edward, according to this news story he’ll be “crossing over” to the talk-show co-host realm next week.
Edward will be Jimmy Kimmel’s co-host next week and he admits he’s flying without a net.
Usually, Edward merely talks with the dead. However, next week, he’ll also have to talk with celebrities like Jim Belushi, Rebecca Romijn-Stamos and Fischerspooner.
It won’t be easy. Edward says the spirits can move him at any moment and says it’s “quite possible” someone from the other side will want to send a message to an audience member during one of the interviews.
Still, he says he’s learned not to just blurt things out and will wait until the commercial breaks if necessary to deliver his messages.
That’s probably a good idea as you wouldn’t want to shock Jim Belushi by suddenly blurting out the startling revelation that his dead brother John wants to tell him about some new rugs he’ll be getting in the future in the middle of an interview.
Edward won’t predict how his appearance will be received but hopes that it convinces people he’s a real person and “not just that freak who claims to talk with dead people.”
Did he say fake? Oh, wait, he said freak. Well it’s a bit too late for that, John. Probably should have worried about that before you went around charging folks $300 to hear about how their dead relatives have some important popcorn related message to deliver.
