    Storage Wars Sued By Its Star; Show Is Faked And Execs Were Confronted By Cast, Court Papers Charge
    By David Perel

    “Yuuupp,” Dave Hester has filed a blockbuster lawsuit against Storage Wars, RadarOnline.com is reporting exclusively.

    Hester, one of the show’s best-known personalities who is infamous for his brash “Yuuup” while bidding on storage lockers, charges that the A&E hit show is fake and fired him in retaliation days after he complained about it to network and production company executives.

    Radar broke the story that the reality TV show picked up Hester’s contract option and then rescinded it for season four. Now, in the lawsuit filed by Los Angeles top attorney Marty Singer, the show is accused of illegal activity and an ongoing pattern of outrageous behavior in deceiving the public.

    The suit contains numerous bombshell claims, including that that the network and producers regularly “salt” lockers with valuable items to add drama to the show, rig the bidding and even paid for a female cast member’s plastic surgery to add sex appeal!

    Wow, I'm a fan of this show too. So, Storage Wars Texas is probably fake as well.

    I thought parts of the show were fake but I wasn't sure. I had heard that Barry is a friend of the producer and he brought him on the show.

    I always thought there was something about that show that seemed a little staged.

    I assumed they got to see what was in the lockers before the actual auction not that it was faked.

    Being in the auction business myself, I've yet to strike it big like they do. I'm comfortable but not rich like some of these guys.

    Oh wait, it's fake. Duh. :D

    Interesting reading the legal document.


    On the surface it sounds like Hester has a good case. This could be a very big deal for A&E.

    I thought it was interesting that Hester was suppose to receive $25,000 per episode.

    Any ruling from this could impact other so called "reality shows" that claim everything is real and not scripted.

    We all know its a bunch of BS, or we all should know.

    Yes, even all you HuniBooBoo fans out there and yes even to Paints favorite show "Moonshiners". YEEEeEEEhAWWw, I am fake!

    Very true.

    And in the short-term it's not going to help "Storage Wars".

    Doesn't everyone know that all reality tv shows today are salted up? Hell, most are outright written well before the cameras come out.
