American Pickers stars “come out of the closet”


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.”

    Personally, I love the show but think the name should be changed to “American Peckers” or “American PeckerHeads”.

  • Gayticus Maximus

    They both are cute but I like that chubby boy. Would love to pull down his underpants and plunder his ass for a few “gold nuggets.”

    Great show, guys. And thanks for having the guts to come out of the closet and endure the stupid comments from bigots like those above.

      I totally agree!! I love the show and if they are gay so what!! You don’tsee the straight stars standing their saying, oooh, I’m straight! That’s because it has absolutely no bearing on the show! Keep up the good work guys and I share your passion for collecting and ignore the narrow minded gits comments because we can’t hold their stupidity against them.
