'Storage Wars' drops 3 cast members from extra episodes - report

darrell-sheets-storage-wars.jpgPopular A&E reality show "Storage Wars" is back in the spotlight this week, as Radar Online has published a report that three cast members of the storage bin-bidding program have been left out of extra episodes.

Reportedly, bidder Darrell Sheets (pictured) and auctioneers Dan and Laura Dotson were kept out of some extra episodes that were shot for the current season.

A source tells Radar, "They lived up to Darrell's contract, but then shot more episodes that weren't covered by his contract and kept him out of those. He was not happy to say the least."

The source claims the reason for cutting them back was the money. It might not have anything to do with former cast member Dave Hester's lawsuit, but he did file suit against the show late last year alleging that the show plants items inside the storage bins that are bid upon by the people featured on the show.

Meanwhile, the contracts for Sheets and the Dotsons have not been finalized, according to one source. 


"The show has a few months before the deadline to offer contracts for its next season. Sheets and Dan and Laura don't know what's going to happen to them. They could be replaced with cheaper talent," says the alleged insider.
