American Chopper not the only show going off the air

Looks like Storage Wars is about to have some serious legal issues.

http://www.thehollywoodgossip.com/20...ake-fired-him/

A blockbuster lawsuit against Storage Wars has been filed by David Hester, one of its best-known figures, alleging that the A&E hit is fake and fired him out of spite.

The show reportedly picked up Hester’s contract option, then rescinded it for Season 4 after he raised a series of complaints to the network and producers.

Now, in his Storage Wars lawsuit, Hester accuses the show of illegal activity and an ongoing pattern of outrageous behavior in deceiving the public.

The suit contains many bombshell claims, including that that the network and producers regularly “salt” lockers with valuables to add drama to the show.

They also rig the bidding and even paid for a female cast member’s plastic surgery to add sex appeal, according to Hester, who seeks millions in damages.

Seriously? In a word ... yuuuuuuuuuup!

He says cast members confronted execs at an in-person meeting this year about the show being rigged, then found himself fired and indemnified days later.

How is Storage Wars supposedly fake? Specifically, he alleges:
• Producers staged entire units and enlists cooperation of owners of storage facilities
• The show pays for lockers for “weaker” cast members as part of the manipulation
• The show plants items in lockers after having them appraised weeks in advance
• The show obtains items to be placed in the units from a business regularly on air

In addition, Hester alleges that interviews are scripted and that scenes of bidding are faked to the extent that there NO auctions shown are open to the public.

Perhaps the suit’s biggest claim, however, is that the cast members, along with Hester, raised concerns about the bullet points above and were dismissed


In related news.....

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/new...il-hugo-400827
Brandi Passante, a star of A&E's Storage Wars, has launched a legal attack against Hunter Moore, a controversial porn peddler who has been featured on Anderson Cooper's talk show, Fox News and throughout the media.

Moore is best known for IsAnyoneUp.com, a website that Gawker once said was capitalizing on a new genre of erotica called "stalker porn," featuring nude cell phone pics often submitted by a subject's ex-boyfriend, alongside screenshots of the subject's Facebook profile. Last year, the website prompted Facebook to send Moore a cease-and-desist letter, and in April, his website was shut down.

But Passante says Moore hasn't quit being a pest and is heading to court for revenge.

Anyone with half a brain know that show is faked. Storage owners pillage all the units not paid for before the auctions for the good stuff to help pay for the lost fees.

I couldn't get into the Texas one. Don't know why.
I found the CA people more interesting.

I guess the next thing you're going to tell us is that wrestling is fake, too ?

Honestly, IMHO, all these so called reality shows are staged.

Why do they call it "common sense" when, in fact, it has become so uncommon?

That's my opinion, it outta be your's.

Funny you mentioned that. While on vacation in Orlando (Universal Studios) a couple of days ago, we were at a taping of Impact Wrestling. Ha! So over the top (fake) that it was fun to watch!

It would make things more interesting if he did, esp if he walked into the bank like that.
