After a very bitter falling out, which included a lawsuit and a war of harsh words in the press, A&E is bringing back storage auction bidding super-villain Dave “The Mogul” Hester when Storage Wars returns on August 12th! Keep reading for the full scoop as well as co-star Darrell Sheets’ less-than-positive reaction to the news.
In recent seasons, Storage Wars has quietly shuffled in and out some bidders, presumably to find a fitting replacement for Dave Hester. But, new reports claim even more shuffling has gone on behind the scenes — and an actual fan favorite prepares to move on.
Dave Hester filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against A&E Television Networks and Original Producers, the producers of Storage Wars, today after months of turmoil over his contract and the alleged “salting” of storage units won my cast members. The suit alleges that after Hester asked for indemnity from the alleged fraudulent manipulation of the storage units to producers, they fired him — which he claims is a breach of contract. In addition to the “salting” of lockers with unique and interesting items, Hester claims producers rig the bidding for dramatic effect, repay an antiques business for items used to salt lockers by featuring them on the show for appraisals, and even paid for a female cast member’s plastic surgery to add sex appeal! Keep reading for all the allegations in the suit. Should you stop reading f you don’t want the show spoiled forever? YUUP!
Storage Wars star Dave Hester is always bickering back and forth with his cast mates on the show, but now it’s the producers who he is at war with, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to end well for Dave. For the second season in a row, he has been left wondering if he will be asked back while the rest of the cast begins filming.
