American Pickers stars “come out of the closet”

#SupportPickers

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.”

    I am so hooked on the show and enjoy the banter and personalities of everyone on the show!!!! Can’t wait for the new season to start and could care less if they are or are not gay. Just wish they were nicer to Danielle.

    I knew these guy were gay all along. They probably do each other in back o the truck. I would never watch this show with these two fruitcake. Without them the show would be great, they just ruin it.

    P.S. to Smart Woman below: I hope you don’t have any kids, because THE BIBLE says in Deuteronomy if they sass you, you have to take them downtown and have them stoned to death.
    Long live Mike and Frank and LGBTQ
