HOLLYWOOD-Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, stars of the History Channel’s American Pickers television show, have raised eyebrows in the past with their a-little-too-close relationship and outright disdain for stunning co-star Danielle Colby Cushman. On Monday, the pair “came out of the closet,” in the hopes that fans would understand their choice of sexuality.

Mostly, the Pickers have not been disappointed. Fans have started a campaign on Twitter under the hashtag #SupportPickers, and many members of the LBGQT activist movement have issued statements of support.

Of course they're gay.

Cushman, who is often taunted and belittled by the Pickers despite her staggering beauty and quick wit, said “I knew it all along, but never said anything because of their miserably fragile egos. I guess they’re stronger than I thought!”

Fritz, the submissive “bear” and megapowerbottom of the couple, has mostly “retreated into his oil can collection,” as rumors of a negative and unsupportive family have spread widely across the Internet. Wolfe, however, seems upbeat and optimistic, just like he always does on TV. Wolfe said, “We’re going to keep on picking, but if you hear a little more lisp when we’re trying to haggle with gays, you’ll know that we aren’t actually just pandering for better prices.”

    No they’re not gay. Mike Wolfe is married with a kid. Danielle is bisexual but was married to a guy up to about 2012 because her husband couldn’t deal with her being famous. Frank on the other hand, I doubt he’s gay.

    On the other hand I do enjoy watching the show along with that of Pawn Star but at the same time it makes picking impossible. I go to Yard Sales, the last yard sale for me the 400 mile yard sale, a lot of stuff was over priced. A beat up lunch box created back in 2001 with Superman on it some guy tried to sell it for $20. I swear the guy was on drugs to be selling it for that.
