MSN - “Storage Wars” star David Hester says in a lawsuit filed Tuesday that he was fired after complaining that the reality show is staged. In his lawsuit, Hester contends that the producers of the hit A&E series routinely plant valuable items in the storage lockers seen on the show. Competitors place bids on the lockers without knowing what is inside them, hoping to come across forgotten treasures. The lawsuit pulls no punches, alleging that “nearly every aspect of the series is faked, even down to the plastic surgery that one of the female castmembers underwent in order to create more ‘sex appeal’ for the show …” The lawsuit says the surgery was paid for by the show’s production company, Original Productions. Hester also contends in the suit that Original Productions manipulates the outcome of auctions by placing bids on behalf of “the weaker castmembers who lack … both the skill and financial wherewithal to place winning bids.”
Of course Storage Wars is fake. Duh. Anybody with a brain knew that. There is just no way Darrell Sheets can always know what everything is that he finds in a storage locker the instant he sees it. Dude is the biggest idiot on the planet yet somehow he knows what everything is. Oh that’s a 18th century record player. Oh that’s the type of steel that is used to make titanium rods for peoples legs. Oh that’s the inside of a movie projector from the 60’s. Shut up Darrell. There is no way you can know all that shit unless somebody told you beforehand and there is no way you have a friend who specializes in that shit either. Fake as can be. Don’t get me wrong I still watch it from time to time, but I just suspend belief. Now Antiques Roadshow that’s a different story. That’s my joint. And if that ends up being fake I’ll probably just kill myself Royal nurse style.
