Storage Wars Drops Three More Cast Members in Wake of Lawsuit

In the aftermath of Dave Hester's Storage Wars lawsuit, two more familiar faces have now been cut back on the hit show, according to a new report.

Darrell Sheets on Storage Wars

David Hester has already been frozen out by A&E execs after he filed suit, complete with charges that the show is faked in many ways to add drama.

Now Darrell Sheets has been cut out of approximately six episodes, and auctioneers Dan and Laura Dotson were also cut loose, Radar is reporting.

“They lived up to Darrell’s contract, but then shot six more episodes that weren’t covered by his contract and kept him out of those,” a source said.

“He was not happy to say the least.”

Sheets, known as “The Gambler” on the show, is a popular character, but the source explains the primary motive for cutting him back was money.

“It seems as if they are going after some of the higher paid cast members,” the source said. “Meanwhile they are expanding the franchise.“

The Dotsons are not happy either.

“They make good money and they need the money,” a source said. “Suddenly the show just told them, ‘We don’t need you for this episode.’ Then it happened again."

“So they’ve been battling to stay on the air," a second Dotson source adds. "And say they are worried about their futures. The show is a gold mine.”

Hester, a central character on the show, still has his lawsuit pending. He charges that execs paid the cast to “rent” intriguing items and “seed” them in lockers.

Other items were placed in lockers by production company members, to be discovered on camera, according to Hester, who says they are ALL in on it.

Sheets and the Dotsons have not directly addressed those allegations, and are believed to want to remain on the show if they can swing it. Stay tuned.

I watch the episodes over and over. In time I slowly began disliking certain characters. Interestingly, all the cut cast are the ones I have over time developed a dislike. Funny HUH. I think the producers are on spot.

I like the show. I realize that there's going to be some drama because if you don't it is going to get boring. I I love antiques and I look at the show to see what pricing is placed on some items and what to look for. Darrell bring a lot to that show when he's an asset I would really hate for them to drop them. Sometimes when you trying to save money into Judy 7 foot and lose it all. The company should think of that before they released Darryl and auctioneers there okay to thank you

I really like storage wars. There has to be some added drama in order to generate interest so people will continue to watch. I collect antiques so I look at it in order to check What to look for and pricing. As for Darrell and the auctioneers, I think they're great they bring a lot to the show. I'll be executives don't lose out trying to save money by getting rid of people.

I do not miss the Dotsons. Laura cannot keep talking and laughing and otherwise making noises, she is also a camera hog; I hope they do not return.
