"Storage Wars" Dave Hester sues show...calls it a fraud

heheh....Nice try Dave....as if we didnt know already......



http://www.deadline.com/2012/12/a-ca...y-cast-member/



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 $750,000 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 “sex 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.

Funny how the show portraits them as abandoned units but the reality in many cases is some poor sap got behind on his payments/late penalties and couldn't afford to get it back.
You know there had to be some crying going on by some while watching there personal belongings being pilfered over by strangers.

He's going to have a hard time proving damages, even if he is right. I have a friend who claims he has supplied them with a variety of film props/memorabilia in the past so the allegation that they "salt" the lockers would seem to be true. But it shouldn't be that surprising -- it would be prohibitively expensive to just "guess" each week if there would be anything worthwhile in the lockers and/or try to find "experts" who could provide any kind of real guidance AND would sign likeness release forms. On the budgets these shows run you just can't take that risk, which is why most reality shows are filled with contrived situations -- there may be film crews following their subjects around all day but they simply can't afford the possibility that they capture nothing of interest.

They are all staged to one extent or the other -- again, for the reasons above.

Barry is an old Hollywood guy who made his money in produce, if I'm not mistaken (which I very well could be)...he's also a close friend of one of the producers which is why he's on the show...

Honestly, i doubt someone lost money by starting a thrift store from the show if that was their idea..

Hell Brandy and her husband started out that way.. The only thing fake is the rate they find unbelievable items..
