Philip Micheal Thomas – The Psychic Readers Network

Phillip-Micheal-Thomas-Psychic

After Miami Vice, like the rest of Miami Vice cast, Philip Micheal Thomas got busy with new things – and of course making more money.

During 1994, Thomas signed an agreement wit the Psychic Reader’s Network, which later changed to Traffix Inc.  He became the spokesman for the Philip Michael Thomas Psychic Connection. He appeared in television spots and claimed to have met the planet’s premier psychics through his “world travels”. He dressed similar to his ‘Ricardo Tubbs’ Miami Vice personality he would open the ads with the phrase, “From Miami Vice to world advice!”

Unfortunately for Thomas Traffix replaced him in favor of a Miss Cleo. Thomas then sued them, on the grounds of breach of contract – Thomas was successful.  In 2002, a New York arbitrator awarded Thomas $1.48 million for improper use of his name and likeness, and an additional $780,000 in interest.

He appeared in television spots and claimed to have met the planet’s premier psychics through his “world travels”. He dressed similarly to his Miami Vice alter ego, even opening the ads with the phrase, “From Miami Vice to world advice!”

Traffix replaced Thomas as spokesman in favor of Miss Cleo. Thomas sued, alleging breach of contract, and won. In 2002, a New York arbitrator awarded Thomas $1.48 million for improper use of his name and likeness, and an additional $780,000 in interest.

He also was romantically involved with singer Dionne Warwick, who also was the face behind Psychic Friends Network.
