Storage Wars to Cut Three Cast Members?

“At least three familiar faces have now been cut back” from the hit A&E show “Storage Wars,” claims RadarOnline.
According to the webloid, “Darrell Sheets was frozen out of approximately six extra episodes of Storage Wars. And auctioneers Dan and Laura Dotson were also cut back in the season that just finished shooting.”
A so-called “source” is then quoted as saying, “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,” adds the blog’s “source.”
RadarOnline also notes, “The Dotsons are not happy about their reduced role either,” because they “need the money,” and it appears they and Sheets “could be replaced with cheaper talent.”
A rep for the network tells Gossip Cop that the RadarOnline story is “not true.”
We’re told not every member of the cast appears in every episode, and nothing more dramatic is going on.
