Caputo has recently been very open about their marital issues.

“I don’t understand it. I lay in bed, and I say to myself, ‘How did this happen? How did I get here?’” she said during a scene from the latest episode of her hit TLC show, as reported by E! News.

Theresa gave viewers a glimpse into the state of her relationship with husband Larry, and it seemed like things aren’t great.

“Since the last season of ‘Long Island Medium’ and through a period of time, Larry and I’s relationship has changed,” she said while eating with one of her close girlfriends. “We’ve been there for each other, you know, through thick and thin, you know, good times, and right now are not such great times.”

Theresa also explained that her show — which has been on the air since September 2011 — isn’t the only cause of the tension on her marriage.

“I sometimes interpret it as growing apart. I’ve changed, and he has changed. We’re both not happy, and you know, it’s hard to try to work through that,” she told viewers in an emotional confession. “It’s not easy for me to sit here and to talk about this, to talk about my feelings, to talk about how my marriage is, but you know, things do change.”

According to eagle-eyed fans, the “strain” on the marriage was noticeable in recent times. There had been a distinct lack of recent photos of the usually public pair on their respective social media pages.

“I love what I do. I wouldn’t change a thing. I am so grateful and very blessed, but because of what I do and where I am in my life with my career, every relationship in my life has suffered,” Theresa explained.

The pair married in 1989 and have two children together, Larry Caputo Jr., 24, and Victoria Caputo, 23.

But she told investigators that's not the drug she thought she was using.

The baby had to be flown to Children's Hospital from Uniontown.

Crystal Cumberland is in jail and facing charges including aggravated assault and endangering the welfare of a child.

According to Pennsylvania State Police in Fayette County, in November, the baby girl had to be given several doses of Narcan to revive her.

At the time, investigators thought the baby overdosed on heroin, but according to a criminal complaint, Cumberland "admitted to hospital staff to snorting a white powder to get high, which exposed the infant to fentanyl that was sold as heroin."

Jones went into the mall and found the 29-year-old mother speaking with a group of her friends in front of a store. She was very apologetic. 

Jones filed a report with the Department of Child Services and warned the woman to never leave her children alone again, according to WISH

The attack happened Thursday afternoon at the Meadows Mobile Home Park in Melbourne, police said.

Police said the girl's mother dropped the girl off to be watched by a family friend and another woman. The family friend left and the child was being watched by the other woman when the mixed-breed dog attacked the girl, police said.

The woman was able to grab the girl and run out of the house, where she screamed for help, police said. The dog kept trying to get through the door when a neighbor grabbed the child and called 911, police said. 

"I just picked her up and ran like hell with her. I told my wife, 'Call 911, we got an emergency.' That's before I even saw her wounds," neighbor Richard Hansen said. "I saw her trying to keep the door shut, so I ran over there and she said the dog attacked her."

It’s unclear why the dog attacked the child, police said.

The child had injuries to her neck, back and leg, but she will recover, police said. The woman also has not-life-threatening injuries. 

"The little girl kept saying, 'Bad dog, bad dog,'" Hansen said.

Animal services has captured the dog, as well as three other dogs, but it’s unclear what will happen to the animals.

Police said they don't anticipate filing any criminal charges against the dog owners and said they were cooperative.

A piece of real estate about the size of a coffin comes with a drop-dead price in Brookline.

It’s nearly $45,000 for a parking spot, but snow removal is extra.

Realtor.com shows the spot, off Addington Road, hit the market in November for $15,000 more than it costs now. 

In Brookline, parking is at a premium. But the spot isn’t even premium parking. For one thing, you're at risk of getting sideswiped and there's a tree stump that makes getting out of the passenger seat a little difficult. 

To be fair, the listing does not promise voluminous, capacious or anything of the sort. 

Though it may be in a "sought after location," the property description also advises it is "suitable for compact car only." 

“It seems like a lot of money, but it's not unreasonable for a parking space in Brookline,” The Presti Group’s Gina Dirocco said.

Dirocco says there's a good reason why, in Brookline, this humble pad of asphalt could fetch such a seemingly outrageous price. 

“Most towns around here will let you park overnight nine months out of the year. All the months except the winter. Brookline, however, does not offer parking any time of the year. Ever,” she explained. 

With a low-enough interest rate, it's even possible slot number 12 could wind up costing less per month than a rented space. 

Still, what might make good economic sense in the long run might not feel, to some, like good common sense in the short term. 

It’s been on the market for a while and still hasn’t sold.
