DOES “STORAGE WARS” HAVE A FUTURE WITHOUT BARRY WEISS?

Four years ago when Storage Wars debuted on A&E, Barry Weiss happened to be a buddy of one of the producers and agreed to appear on the show as a favor. Like everyone else, he was flabbergasted when the series took off like gangbusters and he got a kick out of becoming famous overnight. Between seasons, Barry visited other cities and made a ton of money making appearances and promoting the show. He and his startling collection of vehicles and his spiffy vintage clothing delighted viewers. Last season Dave Hester left after blabbing about the inner workings of the show. (We saw him selling stuff at the Rose Bowl Flea Market a few months ago.) According to RadarOnline, now Barry wants out so he can travel more. (He doesn’t really need the money) Can the series survive without Barry’s comic relief? We doubt it.

STORAGE WARS’ DAVE HESTER: THAT’S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU BITE THE HAND THAT FEEDS YOU

After three successful seasons, Dave Hester indiscreetly made some accusations that the show he appeared on – Storage Wars – is “fixed,” and the next thing he knew he was fired. Nobody had heard of Hester before he appeared on the hit show as the egotistical bidder on storage lockers who made “Yuuup” a household word. Fame brought business opportunities for Hester and he made even more money doing personal appearances. Maybe he’s as obnoxious in real life as he was on the show, because he lacked gratitude and criticized his own series. This was quickly followed by a lawsuit for wrongful termination. So far he’s had no luck with his lawsuit but he WAS seen on Sunday at the Rose Bowl Flea Market. He’s still trying to cash in on his fleeting TV fame – he unloaded sale items (including “Yuuup” t- shirts) from a huge truck with “Yuuup” written on it in the parking lot and posed for photos with fans. Lesson to be learned: Don’t take your good luck for granted.

    BLIND_ITEM_NEW_#CUT

    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
