Vanessa found a new passion?

Vanessa, when asked if she found her new passion, the actress stated that she doesn’t think of it as a new passion, but she had accepted the fact that she can see things and hear things too. 

Vanessa accepted that she had gone through many experiences over the years. 

Vanessa said even when she was a child and in that growing-up phase, she experienced such things. 

The actress recalls one time she was getting all ready for school when she was eight years old, there used to be a duck thing that you pulled to the toy. 

She remembers there was one of it on the dining table. So, young Vanessa began walking, and it just started like going alongside her. 

Vanessa felt like it was interesting. She remembers that she shut it down for a while, knowing it was scary. 

However, recently she realized that this is like a gift to her. And also knows that she has the ability to do and decided she is going to lean into it. 

Another interesting thing she shared is that she just did her first real paranormal investigation with equipment and everything. 

She giggled and said that a lot of equipment was on the market. Nevertheless, Vanessa’s favorite equipment to do the investigation is a spirit box. 

She explains that it scans radio frequencies very fast. So, one can use it more in a rural place, resulting in that it doesn’t pick up stations. 

And so, she mentioned that if one puts on AM, it sounds like static, but also something about the electricity that it generates also allows spirits to speak through it. 

Vanessa also remembers that one day she was sitting at a tombstone in a graveyard with her best friend. 

And she says that it was nighttime, having a pitch-black scenario. Vanessa and her friend found a tombstone of a spirit that they were told was very playful. 

The actress turned it on, and they introduced themselves to it. They named the tombstone Sam. 

So, Vanessa’s friend asked Sam to tell her their names, and it goes like shhh, Vanessa Shhh. 

Vanessa says they didn’t run but asked again if it had anything else to tell them, and it was just like, shhh, No. 

Vanessa advised that if you have to say to the spirit to stay there as you don’t want them to follow you. 

Lastly, when asked if she was the ghost, what would she do? The lady stated that she would be the type of ghost who would go on Billie Holiday in the middle of the night and commented she loves creepy.

Net Worth

Since Greg is no more in this world, we have the net worth of his daughter, who has amassed an impressive net income of $16 million from her shining acting and musical career.
