A&E's Storage Wars has dropped three cast members in the wake of a lawsuit filed by former cast member Dave Hester that alleges aspects of the show are fake, Radar Online reports.
Ashley Rickards, Brett Davern
How did any of us survive high school? Forget grades. We're talking insecurities, anxieties and social terrors, which have rarely found such vivid comic voice as in MTV's wonderful comedy Awkward, which begins a third season of emotionally harrowing hilarity with back-to-back episodes (Tuesday, 10/9c).
It's junior year (or "the beginning of the end") for the show's self-consciously angsty narrator/blogger Jenna (the terrific Ashley Rickards), who you'd think might be in a happier place having spent the summer cocooned with full-time no-longer-secret boyfriend Matty (Beau Mirchoff). No such luck. With other friends having spent their off time in Europe, hooking up and changing their looks without keeping her in the loop, Jenna worries she's being sidelined, left behind, forgotten. It doesn't help that her sadistic tyrant of a new creative-writing teacher, the heartless Mr. Hart (Anthony Michael Hall), burrows into her fragile psyche with the very first assignment: "Write about your greatest fear." Where to begin?
For reality-TV fans, the revelation that not every aspect of a show is legit is like learning there's no Santa Claus. They move on and enjoy the presents.
But the curtain on "reality" is getting pulled back more and more. Last spring, HGTV acknowledged that the home viewings on House Hunters are done for the cameras after buyers have already chosen their properties.

Storage Wars star Mark Balelo was found dead Monday of an apparent suicide, TMZ reports. He was 40.
A&E has fired back at Storage Wars star Dave Hester for claiming that the show is rigged, and has shifted focus to question the motivation behind Hester's allegations.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, A&E filed its response to Hester's lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court last week, in which the network accuses Hester of fabricating a "tabloid-worthy drama" as a distraction.

When fired Storage Wars star Dave Hester ("Yuuup!") filed suit in December against A&E and Original Productions, accusing them of rigging the show by planting valuable items in some storage units, he reignited an old debate questioning how "real" reality TV actually is. Other series, like TLC's Breaking Amish, have weathered criticism that participants' backgrounds were embellished. And it's now widely accepted that docusoaps like MTV's The Hills were heavily scripted.

A&E's hit show Storage Wars is rigged — at least according to a lawsuit filed by Dave Hester.
In the lawsuit obtained by TMZ, the former host claims that he was fired from the series after complaining to producers about the alleged rigged practices, which he says include producers planting valuable items in the units.
Stana Katic, Nathan Fillion
We know Richard Castle will do anything for his partner/muse/lover Detective Beckett. But on Monday's episode of Castle (10/9c, ABC), that might (literally) cost him a lot.
Exclusive: Castle recruits Star Trek alum for Comic-Con episode
The Storage Wars-inspired episode, titled "Secret's Safe with Me," finds Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic) looking into the auction of a storage unit that may be connected to a woman's murder. There's just one problem: Beckett doesn't have enough time to get a warrant, so the only way to protect what may be key evidence is for Castle to join in on the bidding...
