We did a post a while back revealing that Storage Wars star Barry Weiss is the “Jewish Godfather” of custom fabricator and fellow reality star Jesse James. At the time all we had were a couple mentions in interviews, but now, thanks to information provided by one of our commenters, we’ve discovered video evidence of the connection! Check out this video clip of a long-haired Barry attending his godson Jesse James’ wedding to Janine Lindemulder in 2002!

Though she has become a huge star alongside partner Jarrod Schulz on A&E’s popular reality series Storage Wars, Brandi Passante prefers to keep to herself when the A&E cameras stop rolling. Recently she gave an interview to MyLifetime.com and also did a lengthy Q&A with fans during the most recent season premiere in which she answered every kind of question under the sun, including: Is she married to Jarrod? Was she a stripper? Are her boobs real? Does she miss Dave Hester? How funny is Barry really? And what’s her favorite toothpaste?

The main man over at Reality Blurred, Andy Dehnart, posted the following video of Storage Wars executive producer Thom Beers discussing how lines are sometimes written for the cast and how the storage units are sometimes altered for show. Now before you start saying, “I knew Dave Hester was right about all of this!” Please be aware that what Beers owns up to is a far cry from the many allegations the former cast member has brought about in litigation.
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!
As we reported in a previous post, Storage Wars star Jarrod Schulz has had a number of run-ins with the law, including drug possession and transporting arrests in the late 1990s. Those arrests resulted in a couple stints behind bars, the latter of which was a 16-month stay in California state prison. At the time of the previous post, we were unable to track down any of Jarrod Schulz’s mug shot photos, but a couple of them have now made their way online featuring Jarrod rocking a bit more hair on his head and a little less on his chin.
