Larry Caputo, the ex-husband of Long Island Medium star Theresa Caputo, exclusively told RadarOnline.com that finding instant fame on reality TV is a curse — and he's proof!

"I can go down a list of reality shows where it's destroyed them," he complained. "Once you're in the public eye, anything can be revealed!"

"I have nothing to worry about. I'm not doing anything stupid or crazy. I feel secure that way," he continued. "There's nothing you're going to get on me. But it's ruined so many people's lives."

As Radar reported, Larry and Theresa finalized their divorce at the end of 2018, closing the door on 28 years of marriage. And Larry blames the couple's hit reality show, in part, for their sad separation.

"When you're in the public eye, it does put a strain on your personal life," he confessed, noting, "That can be hard for the average person who is not a trained actor, because a trained actor knows what they're getting themselves into. A reality person doesn't realize what they're getting themselves into, until they're in it, and it's a learning process."

Larry added that although he did shoot the show with Theresa last season, he's not sure what his future plans are.

"They want me to be on the show — to what degree, I'm not sure," he revealed. "The people who watch the show, the diehard fans, it's killing them that Theresa and I are not together…we were adored and idolized and so relatable to everyone, so people were really upset it didn't work out between the two of us."

Since their divorce, Larry has moved on, and he's relocated across the country to Santa Monica. He's currently promoting a new wine label, seeing someone new, and enjoying a stress-free life out of the spotlight.

"I have a lot of time by myself," he said. "I go for walks, hop in my car, try to learn my way around California. And I do go to the gym every day. That's the highlight of my day."

While he won't rule out a return to reality programming, he's prepared to be a lot more careful when considering his next project.

"If I'm approached and sounds like the right thing, maybe I would do it," said Larry, adding that he'd be interested in tackling something either with cars or cooking. "The other thing is, do I want to get back into reality TV and back in the public eye again? Because not only for myself, but it seems like for a lot of reality people it doesn't end well."
