The cast-members from A&E's Storage Wars allegedly manufactured a fraudulent product on purpose because — why else!– it put more cash in their pockets!
Basically, if you haven't heard, the rumor is that producers have been beefing up the show by hiding valuables inside storage units for the cast to deliberately find. You know, because the show would be boring if all they ever found was tennis balls and shrunken heads! (Remember that episode?! LOL!)
One source revealed:
"In one meeting with executives Brandi Passante and Jarrod Schulz stood up and said they wanted the show to keep salting their lockers."
This isn't the kind of salting one does to popcorn at the movies!
These two supposedly planted valuables in storage lockers to boost ratings! Sneaky, sneaky!!!
The source continued:
"But Brandi and Jarrod were all for it. They said they were even in favor of more salting! Brandi and Jarrod have benefited greatly from the salting… And when talk turned toward possibly stopping it Brandi and Jarrod made it very, very clear they were strongly in favor of it."
As we told you earlier in the week, David Hester is suing the show and the network after being fired!!
The former cast-member swears he was only fired because he was making too many waves about the staged lockers and culture of deception!
David hopes to be awarded millions of dollars in damages.
