--In fact, she's spoken recently to both MICHAEL JACKSON and PRINCESS DIANA.  And you'll be happy to know that things are pretty cool with both of them.

--Michael is relieved not to be hounded and persecuted anymore.  Sylvia says, quote, "He said that he was very maligned in this life, and he's not holding any grudges.

--"He feels a definite unfairness because they accused him of so many things.  You've got to realize that he was like a man in a 9-or-10-year-old's body.  He felt more at home with children than people his own age.

 (--What an unfortunate slip of the tongue.  I'm sure what Sylvia MEANT to say was Michael was "like a 9-or-10-year-old in a man's body", don't you think?) 

--"He's in a healthier body now.  I can say that he probably never would have made it through those concerts he had planned before he died.  He was sick."

--Meanwhile, Diana approves of her son PRINCE WILLIAM'S upcoming wedding to KATE MIDDLETON.  Sylvia says, quote, "She's thrilled.  She thinks Kate is a wonderful person for William, because she has a tougher skin than she ever had.

--"Di was very shy and everything hurt her feelings."

--Sylvia also has an update on BRITTANY MURPHY and her husband, SIMON MONJACK . . . who died just five months apart.

--She says, quote, "Brittany initially said that she felt like she died prematurely, but then after that initial feeling she said she was really happy to be there [in the afterlife]. 

--"When he died, she was right there to greet him.  They had a lovely reunion.  What people don't realize is you meet up with people from other lives as well, not just your current one.  Your relatives are there, your pets are there."

--By the way . . . Sylvia says the biggest misconception people have about the afterlife is that THERE ISN'T ONE.  She adds, quote, "And if people do imagine one, they imagine a place with clouds, or sitting on a cloud with a harp.

--"That's really stupid.  In actuality, the afterlife is three feet above our ground level.  People keep looking up to the sky, which isn't correct.  When people see "ghosts," they always say they're floating.

--"They're not actually floating, they're walking on their own solid ground.  It has libraries, it has record centers, it has concert halls, it has everything except the negativity."
