Now that Long Island Medium star Theresa Caputo has split from her husband of 28 years, she’s learning to live without Larry.

And while she insists that she’s doing well, she very quickly reveals that things aren’t so good beneath the surface.

See Theresa explain what life is really like now in the video below.

Long Island Medium caught Theresa’s shocking split on camera, and now the reality series is showing Theresa’s life without Larry.

Any breakup is hard, but a split after nearly three decades of marriage … that’s a huge life adjustment.

Her father asks her: "So Theresa, how you gettin’ along?"

"I’m good."

If you sense a but coming, you might just be psychic.

"There’s a lot of things that I didn’t realize that now I have to do, that I, you know, I  guess took for granted that Larry might’ve done."

Of course. They’ve been married for so long that one might compare living without each other to learning to live with only one hand.

She gives an example.

"Like simple things, taking out the garbage."

She explains that Larry Caputo, who has broken his silence on their difficult split, is currently on the opposite side of the country.

"With him still in California, you know, it’s hard."

We can imagine so.

"I mean look, I know we really don’t talk about it a lot because, you know, it’s hard."

Her father is so sweet, and assures her that he’s happy to help her with things like taking out the trash.

He tells her: "It keeps me busy, you know?"

Theresa says that her father and the rest of her family want to do whatever they can to help her.

But she says that, while helping with the trash and the dogs is great, there’s nothing that they can do to mend her marriage.

Theresa puts on a brave face and says that, all things considered, things are okay.

"But Larry and I are in a good place with each other."

They are, at least, communicating.

"I talk to Larry every once and a while to check in and make sure that everything’s good."

It sounds like they mostly talk about other things, rather than about their relationship — or what is left of it.

"We talk about what’s going on. The kids. His parents."

She says that Larry always asks about Theresa’s parents, whom he is come to love over the past three decades.

And she knows that her parents love Larry, too.

Larry Caputo Looks Sad

Theresa knows that she’s not the only one impacted by this split.

"It’s hard for everyone."

Naturally, their families have been connected for a long time.

"Even though it’s just something between Larry and I, it’s affecting our whole family."

Of course.

"Like everyone else in the family, my parents — they’re sad about what’s going on between Larry and I."

But she says that they’re not trying to meddle or pressure anyone.

"As sad and as hard as it is for them, they are there, just loving and supporting us."

Theresa summarizes how things are right now.

"It’s hard, but I’m okay."

She also reveals to the camera that this kind of chat with her father is rare.

"It might be surprising to people that I don’t talk about the separation with my dad or my family. But it’s not an easy thing to talk about."

Her father shows that he understands, saying:

"Whatever it’s gonna be, whatever it’s gonna be, and that’s it."

Theresa thanks him "just for being there," and emphasizes that she loves her father very much. It’s so sweet.

We just wish that th etouching scene were under happier circumstances, you know?
