'Storage Wars' drops 3: Cast fired over lawsuit that 'Storage Wars' is fake?

'Storage Wars' drops 3: Cast fired over lawsuit that 'Storage Wars' is fake?, The A&E show "Storage Wars" has dropped three cast members in the wake of a lawsuit filed by former cast member Dave Hester. The lawsuit alleges a host of improprieties, all stemming because one of the cast members claimed some aspects of the popular A&E show are falsified.

The May 2 report from TV Guide was originally carried by Radar Online.

The American reality television series, which premiered in 2010, features auctioneers and buyers who purchase storage lockers that have been left unpaid. The show follows the buyers who, after a brief inspection of the contents, are left to bid on what they hope turn out to be valuable contents.

Auctioneers Dan and Laura Dotson were cut out of the most recent season, which just finished filming, and cast member Darrell Sheets, known as "The Gambler," was also "frozen out" of about six extra episodes.

"They make good money and they need the money," a source told Radar. "Suddenly the show just told them, 'We don’t need you for this episode.' And then it happened again. So they've been battling to stay on the air, and they are worried about their futures. The show is a gold mine."

The source said that Storage Wars is looking for "cheaper talent" to replace Sheets and the Dotsons.

However, A&E has denied the report that the two were let go. "Not every cast member appears in every episode of the series, but there is no truth to the report that any other members have been dropped," a network rep told

Hester is seeking more than $750,000 in damages for wrongful termination, breach of contract, breach of good faith and fair dealing, unfair business practices, and declaratory relief.

Hester contends that "Storage Wars" producers regularly planted valuable items in the lockers, or sometimes even staged entire units. When he complained about the unethical practice to producers, he says he was fired.
