'Storage Wars' At War With Its Star Dave Hester After Claims That Show Is Fake | Radar Online




[pic - click to view]





The A&E hit show Storage Wars is at war with its star Dave Hester as claims that the show is fake have alarmed network execs, RadarOnline.com is reporting exclusively.

The showdown between the network and its reality star may result in Hester departing Storage Wars very soon, a source tells Radar. Taping for the new season of the show has started even though the cast's financial deals are not finalized.


"Dave was sent an option for the new season and then it was rescinded," the source claims. "It’s turned into a big mess and some people on the show are convinced it is all going to end up in court."

Hester is famous for his signature "Yuuuup" bid and is the breakout star of the show. But now he’s both alarmed and upset about the show’s actions.


"He was not involved in the first few days of filming even though the rest of cast was," said a source. "He thinks he may be fired."

One big issue: accusations that the show’s bidding is rigged and that items are put in some lockers to be "discovered" and add to the drama of the episode.

Part of the show’s formula is cast members taking interesting items to be appraised.

"People close to the show talk about allegations the show is fake a lot and word has gotten back to the execs," the source said.

One source claims Hester is worried he will be a target because of the complaints. And with his contract not done for the new season, he’s worried the network is singling him out.

Storage Wars has been a ratings winner for years, as the show features four professional buyers bidding on abandoned storage lockers. "But the network is more focused on some of its other hits right now," a source told Radar.


"The cast is getting squeezed financially on some issues that are related to the show and the show has not resolved, even with taping beginning."

When asked about Hester’s status and the charges of the show being faked, A&E told Radar: "We have no comment."

Good they can take this bullsh*t off the air now and these nobodies can go back to bidding on abandoned storage units in peace. It will also allow the wannabes to stay out of the pros way everywhere else in the country

This x100,000,000,000,000,000

Literally 98% of shows on tv are 100% scripted.

Every TruTv show basically.

Also ironically enough, every reality show is fake.

I always die laughing when like Dave Hester and the other people f!ght because the acting is so terrible you can tell its fake. Like when I think Darrell is his name? When Darrell's son was going to f!ght Dave Hester... the dialogue was embarrassing.

Not saying that this show is real

BUT

Writing credits on reality shows don't mean the same as they do on dramas and sitcoms..

For example, the first season of the Real World, is as genuine as it gets when it comes to "reality TV" and there were people receiving writing credits on there (20 years ago).

Thats because in reality TV a writing credit doesn't mean that you wrote a script for actors to read off

Rather it means that you were part of the editing process that they use to copy and paste footage together in order to create a cohesive storyline (as opposed to just showing random clips)

So it's not necessarily somebody writing scripts for actors, but creating an engaging storyline for the audience, through editing

At least that's what it was 20 years ago (and even before then on programs like "American Family"), but who knows now

Storage Wars star Dave Hester today sued A&E and the producers of the reality show, calling it a staged “fraud on the public”. Represented by attorney Marty Singer in his suit (read it here), Hester is seeking more than $3.75 million in damages and fees from the network and Original Productions for their actions and for firing him from the show. “When Plaintiff David Hester (“Hester”) complained to producers that A&E’s fraudulent conduct of salting and staging the storage lockers was possibly illegal, he was fired from the Series. As further evidence of Defendants’ outrageous conduct, they purported to rescind their written exercise of an option retaining Hester’s services this coming season,” says the 14-page complaint, which is suing for wrongful termination, breach of contract, breach of good faith and fair dealing, unfair business practices and declaratory relief.

Reality shows are often accused of sleight-of-hand manipulation of events, contestants and other participants, but Hester’s suit tarnishes Storage Wars almost from top to bottom. “Nearly every aspect of the Series is faked, even down to the plastic surgery that one of the female cast members underwent in order to create more “s3x appeal” for the show, the cost of which was paid for by Original,” the suit claims. “Original regularly ‘salts’ the storage lockers that are the subject of the auctions portrayed on the Series with valuable or unusual items to add dramatic effect, even going so far as to stage entire storage units. Original also manipulates the outcome of certain auctions by paying for storage units on behalf of the weaker cast members who lack the both the skill and financial wherewithal to place winning bids,” it adds. Hester is seeking a jury trial.

Now in its third season, the highly rated Storage Wars pits buyers against one another for contents of abandoned storage lockers. Known as “the Mogul,” Hester has been one of the seven main participants on the show since it debuted in 2010. The second half of Storage Wars’ latest season began last week.

the fcc or whoever is in charge of tv programming needs to pass a law that bans all these "reality tv" shows...the only shows that should stay on is stuff like cops and them detective shows...have the tv networks got so cheap that their only choice is to have 6 hour marathons of pawn stars or some other phonty show...no wonder why nobody watches these "reality" shows

I always see your a.ss talking about "regimes" and talking about gov over reach, but here you are asking the FCC to ban these tv shows? And apparently people watch them, they keep making new ones and getting new seasons.
