    Default Storage Wars: Trouble In Paradise

    YUUUP!

    NEW YORK – “Storage Wars” may have a real war brewing with one of its stars.

    Dave Hester , one of the show’s cast members, has filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the show, according to RadarOnline.

    In his lawsuit, Hester is claiming the series is fake, and he says when he made complaints to the network about the staged portions of the show he was fired, Radar reported.



    The popular A&E reality show follows auctioneers and buyers as they bid on various storage units blindly and then raid their purchases in hopes of finding treasures.

    According to Radar, Hester claims show producers plant valuable items in the units to presumably make the show more interesting. The suit also claims the show rigs the bidding process. In one part of Hester’s suit, he goes so far as to say the network paid for one female cast member’s plastic surgery to increase her sex appeal and make her more appealing to viewers.

    In the lawsuit, Hester claims the show deceives the public and that he was fired when he tried to question the authenticity of the reality series.

    But a rep from the A&E told FOX 411 no such lawsuit exists to the network’s knowledge.

    “We do not know about a lawsuit being filed and we do not comment on pending or threatened litigation,” the rep said in an email.

    The rep would not comment on whether or not Hester was still with the show.

    a reality show that is scripted? UNHEARD OF!!!!!

    Barry is a plant to give the show "color"...and I'm sure that the producers reimburse him for his purchases

    I doubt that they paid for the girl's boobs...but if they did ...big deal...what's his problem? that they didn't offer him a boob job?


    this show is not a competition so if they "salt" the storage units, who is hurt? I think Mr Yup is a legend in his own mind, and he's pissed off that his business failed (which was shown on the last cycle), and he wasn't wanted back this cycle..now he wants money however he can get it, and if it takes ruining the businesses of the others on this show, so be it

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    They should send it to TruTV. Everything on that network is scripted, which is ironic given the channel name.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.
