Dionne Warwick Reveals If She Believed in the Psychic Friends Network

According to The Guardian, Warwick started hosting infomercials for the network which developed into a day time talk show. She even temporarily added an “e” on the end of her surname in the early 1970s after her astrologer told her it would boost her success. Warwick says about the gig, “That’s exactly what it was. It was during a period of time when I was not recording. You know, it kept the lights on in my house and food on my table. It was an earning power. I earned money that I normally would have earned if I was on the road. It’s very simple.”

Did she actually believe in the Psychics? When asked this question, Warwick replied, “No more than anybody else is,” she says. “You ask anybody in the world: ‘What’s your sign?’ and they’ll say it.”

I don't care - I always loved her songs, her voice and her personality. She's one of the greatest and has a distinct voice that anyone can recognize - which for me, defines a singing legend.

What the hell happened to her money? She should've been quite well-off with all the record sales and concerts.

The Psychic Friends really damaged her reputation.

Does D'Andre believe in paying her taxes? That's the question!

She's lying. She was still recording at that time, and not on her own label. She was still on Arista records.

[quote] She was still on Arista records.

She was still on weed and coke.

Dionne has never been into the hard stuff.

I don't think its a big deal now. At the time sure...but now its kinda normal. Celebs endorse everything

There's still a stigma about infomercials. It's considered low-rent. It's not like doing a campaign for Revlon or Garnier.

Dionne is the first one to admit that she's a spendthrift.

That's what happened to her money.

And why she's still touring at almost eighty, I assume.

In Darlene Love's autobio, she talks about how Dionne lent her 30k to get herself settled when Darlene left her husband. Love also said Dionne would take her singers on shopping trips and pay for everything.
