On more than one occasion, a firestorm of controversy has erupted around a group of opinionated women (and one guy) who take on all comers in a no-holds-barred critique of the paranormal community. The Ghost Divas have battled paranormal investigation teams; one-time SyFy cast members; and called into question the authenticity of the network's popular program, Ghost Hunters.
While it might be easy to dismiss the Divas as caustic detractors, a growing fan base and rising profile seem to suggest the group is striking a chord among the more disaffected and dissatisfied in the field. With an outright disdain for the trappings of the modern fame-seeking investigation teams (merchandising, video promotion, media appearances...), the Divas have also lambasted (less than scrupulous) psychics, the notion of orbs, and even addressed fashion in the field (they are all for it, by the way).
I hadn't read too many interviews with the Divas, so I decided to pick Ghost Diva Tonya Hacker's brain and find out what makes them tick - and what gets them ticked off.
