    And you knew Hester would be the one doing this. I think the part of him being a colossal horse's rear end may be the only thing in this show not faked...

    He was fine with the money and notoriety, but he was asking for more money...

    No one comes out of this looking very honest...

    That is so true. If anyone would do this to the show, you knew it would be Hester.

    Guy is a flippin tool. Everything you read about him is bigtime neg.

    Oh no question.

    There were murmurs before last season about him not being happy with the amount he was getting per episode.

    BUT, I gotta believe what he's claiming in his legal doc is true.

    Actually, I think they are about as 'real' as a lot of other daily things.....

    Reality tv is about at "real" as all the realists around here.

    I'm pretty sure that show advertisements that they are reenactments.

    I actually like storage wars. Good late night TV when nothing is on and you can't sleep.

    I saw a show called Lizard Lick Towing once. Cheesiest show ever. Definitely going after the WWE demographic.

    Which is fine.

    They just need to say something to that affect at the beginning of the show, like they do for the Tru-TV shows.

    "Storage Wars" could end up getting a big 'wrist-slap' over this.

    The thing about the Dave Hester character is that the show needed a "bad guy" and he fit the bill nicely. He was easy to hate.

    Now it seems Mark Balelo is going to be the "bad guy" of the show. He just strikes me as "wierd".

    Probably the beginning of the end of the run of the show.

    There's no way South Beach Tow is fake. :cool:

    I do like the Repo Games that comes on Spike TV. They have to answer 3 out of 5 questions right to keep their car. Get 'em wrong, the car is gone.

    I laughed so hard when the black lady "ripped" a door off a car. There was no wiring or hinges connecting the door to the car. :laugh1:
