'Storage Wars' drops 3 cast mates: Cheaper contract talent sought?, Episodes of "Storage Wars" have cut three popular A&E reality TV show personalities. In the wake of Dave Hester's lawsuit, another storage war over contract renewals is brewing. Reportedly, "Storage Wars" cast members; Darrell Sheets is frozen from future full episodes. Rumor is Dan and Laura Dotson won't see many auction lockers in the future.

On May 1, RadarOnline wrote that after Hester was nixed and filed a lawsuit that accused the show and network of rigging elements during taping of episodes, all hell broke loose.

A super-secret insider said this about the dropping of three main cast members of "Storage Wars":

"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.

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

Sheets, aka "The Gambler," is said to be collateral damage from the show's mission to cut cost and find cheaper talent.

As far as the Dotsons are concerned, reportedly, they were cut from future episodes in the same manner and without much future notice.

"They make good money and they need the money. Suddenly the show just told them, 'We don’t need you for this episode,'" another source said of the "Storage Wars" shakeup.

While Sheets was cut from future episodes, sources confirmed he is not following in the footsteps of Hester as some believe. Insiders say he truly wants to stay on the show, it's frustrating to work under in an environment of uncertainty.

With mere months away before another "Storage Wars" season, contract renewals are on the table, but rumor is the show is trying to cast cheaper talent. Apparently, the show is so big, a change in players will not likely jeopardize ratings.

So, "Storage Wars" cut three more cast members. Will you still watch the show? What will it do for ratings?
