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.”

    Who cares if they are fags? That’s their Business.
    Makes no never mind to me.

    But just for the sake of accuracy, you drooling damn fool IT IS NOT A CHOICE~!!!!!

    Did you wake up one morning after weeks of struggle with the epiphany that you were really into chicks after all?
    No you didn’t. It wasn’t a choice it was just how you were when you got squirted out of your mommy’s kooze.
    It’s like that with the fags. They don’t choose, it’s how god made them.

    But callin’ that fat ugly cow Cushman stunning – - – - – - Well that’s a bridge too far.

    Even if you were to say, arguendo, that you liked plus size chicks – even if – she’s still homely.

    Maybe you are gay?

  • Maureen V

    Would never have guessed, but in the scheme of things, does it really matter if they are gay?? They are knowledgeable about the itEms, enjoyable to watch and they seem to truly enjoy their jobs – and they work with their partner – how could it be sny better!!! To all you bigots and haters out there, Satan is saving a special place in hell for you and your kind! My hat’s off to you guys and my heart and prayers go out to you!

    I guess you are probably a Pawn Stars fan, what with the “drama” with Old Man, Corey, Rick and Chumley? Or how Rick conveniently has an “expert” on call to give their opinions on the majority of the items that come into this shop, these experts just happen to mention where they work, (ie the gun guy, Tortuga(?), the guy from the Clarke County museum, handwriting expert guy, video game guy, etc). American Restoration is another show, that ironically happens to be “attached” to Pawn Stars.

    Point being, American Pickers is enjoyable and Frank, gay or straight is a hot bear.

  • K

    There could be some truth to this. Danielle seems to be fun to be around and is an attractive woman as well. Frank, comes across as a surly, but cuddly bear. No mater, I enjoy the show and find it entertaining. At least it is not as smug as Pawn Stars.

  • Seriously?

    Although 100% straight…My 2 best friends are gay men and I think that it’s hilarious that you all think that Mike and Frank are gay.. Not likely..
    The funniest thing about all of this is that Danielle is the one that is gay….
    The show obviously is somewhat staged and I still find it entertaining, but as mentioned earlier by others I too miss the earlier programming that was educational. I have expressed my feelings to Discovery Channel on their website and would like to encourage others with similar feelings to do the same.

    No, dispite rumors on questionable websites Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz are not homosexual. A New York Times Article titled At Home With Mike Wolfe; The Jack Kerouac of Junk stated “rumors circulate on the Internet that Mr. Wolfe and Mr. Fritz are gay. In fact, both men are straight; for the last 17 years, Mr. Wolfe has dated Ms. Faeth, an accountant with a laid-back manner that complements what Ms. Colby described as her boss’s “firecracker” personality.”

  • Jaydan

    Religion is one of the most egregious forms of “thought” worldwide!

    Viva! Dr. Richard Dawkins!!!!!!

  • Jaydan

    The two guy’s on American Pickers are just fake “reality” show material. I am a huge opponent of stupid, mindless TV shows. American Pickers is a mindless, faked, “reality” show.

    The History Channel once catered to the more academic minded. We’re the critical thinkers who value great documentaries and vignettes of illustrious moments in history. We value great science shows completely devoid of pseudo-scientific rot. Take that all of you mentally imbalanced paranormal believers!

    So what does The History Channel offer to the more academically inclined viewer? Well, nothing! Dear, or dear! Have Americans fallen into an abyss of perpetual dumbness or what!

    Getting back to American Pickers, I see only a miniscule inclusion of history offered in this show. Finding old rubbish packed to the rafters, in some old hillbilly’s barn, of which a brief explanation of the junk, by one of those “picker” guys, could count for an iota of history of the crap they’ve “picked.”

    I know how these “reality” shows are formated. Only soggy minded individuals think they’re the real deal. Do these “picker” guys really deal in old junk? Yes. Do they for real wheel and deal on the air? No. Is the production completely stages? For sure!

    As long as TV viewers continue supporting dumb TV shows, then producers are just going to keep throwing them at us.

    I hate to admit it, but if there were truly mindful presentations offered on The History Channel, Bravo, TLC, Travel Channel, HGTV, A&E, Bio, etc. then the networks would probably go belly up. Because too many people want to watch CRAP on their TV’s.

    I could only dream if the Science Channel brought back Cosmos. Or even show reruns with Dr. Carl Sagen. We need more Carl Sagen’s to influence rational thought and intelligence in America! I’d love to see Dr. Richard Dawkins have hos own show. Dr. Dawkins is quite possibly one of the most intelligent men alive in the world! Dr. Steven Hawking, we’d love to hear more from you too!

      For Jaydan-do your complaining to the history channel and leave Mike and Frank out of it-you obviously watch the show or you wouldn’t have so much to complain about-anyone with common sense knows how unreal reality shows are-some people liked to be entertained and while I agree that some are mindless dribble-Jaydan-that’s what the remote is for-as for myself I know the show is scripted but some of the things they pick I have an interest in so I like to hear the backstory on the item and then when I research it normally it is right on point so I have learned something. Perhaps you could learn to treat others as you would like to be treated -from the greatest History Book ever.

      • Carolyn Donovan

        Jaydan-my sincerest apologies-my comments refer to the person who wrote a reply to your reply-my point to him is if you don’t like something use the remote-i agree that there are too many mindless bs Reality (not) shows on tv these days -so that’s what the remote is for-on the other hand the world would be a better place if there were more shows by people such as the great Dr. Sagan-miss him tremendously-I think we are all sick of crappy reality shows-but the remarks need to go to the History Channel network-not at each other – what’s this world coming to when we are directing our negativity at each other instead of where it belongs -the producers of the shows we don’t like and the History Channel and other channels that offer the crap-if we quit watching it-they will get the message eventually and take it off the air-but as long as we take our negative feelings out on each other it proves to the channel that we’re watching the crap-so that’s what we will get more of.

  • ray-)

      • Carolyn Donovan

        For Tippy Tom-nice comment asshole-how about treating others as you would like to be treated-or better yet get a life…people like you shouldn’t be allowed to own a tv – there should be a law outlawing that kind of negativity-but then again maybe you are a bit jealous…lol

    Of course they are gay. Now it makes sense when in one episode of their show ;a customer had a son who was ill or had died , Idont remember , but they showed the picture of his son , and it was a gay boy actor , from the Gay porn site I inmediately recognized that boy from a scene and I was shocked they lied about him. They’re definetely related to Gay world . Look up for the boy is ‘Bruce Corey’ and see yourself

    I just keep telling myself, “these people (most of the people posting on here) are children, they must be.” or this is a joke and everyone is in on it except me. I’m confused about what i’m reading and surprised about all the hatred. I just don’t even know what to say about it. I feel a bit more stupid now. Thank you all for that.

  • Jenn

    I’m a nurse, I see death everyday. For everyone who thinks they are worthy enough to wish death on someone who chooses life differently than you….it’s not us that will judge but your maker, so stop judging. Everyone has their own choices and preferences, as do those who dont agree with their sexual decision, its not about you. Focus on your own life, than others you have no power over.

  • Now Subway has the little far fuck with no carm what so ever as a spokewomen. I bet he wishes it was a foot long cock instead of bread and cold cut. It will be hard to to enjoy a sub ever again. And to make it worse he’s speaking as if getting fingered by his butt Buddy at the same time. WHAT A FAG!!!!

  • They are not gay!! Mike is married to a woman and has a little girl. Frank has a long time girlfriend. Google each of their names

    Here is what I read first about Mike.

    People need to google and read several sites before making judgemental decisions. We all know the media prints stories for selling papers and sensational stories on their websites to get more hits.

  • Bj

    Tom, check your spelling.Danielle is her name. She is not in denial of anything. Aboshun!!!

  • tom

    you are right kurtis this gay shit is out of control gay marriage is wrong kids think it cool to be gay its not its sick but it might be to late everyone is out of the closet and aborshun is murder I hope mike and frank are not gay I think denial is one of the most beautifull girl in the world

  • Kurtis Dorner

    I can’t stand faggots. You guys are sick in the head. You all should beg Jesus to forgive you for your sins and save you from damnation. Praise Jesus to make you straight again and mentally healthy. If god wanted there to be gays he would have created one sex and told them to fuck each other but he didn’t. He created two different sexs for a reason. Sticking your pipe in another mans crapper is wrong. It’s supposed to be a one way street to rid the body of its wastes not help another man get his jolleys off. Samething goes for you dildo wearing snatch eaters. Repent to sweet Jesus to forgive for your sins. I will personally talk you through any sexual reorientation and crisis management issues you are having and make you a good Christian again. Call me free at 440-734-6107, ask for Kurtis Dorner.

  • Shana

    I am Shana, wants to say a big thank you thank you thank you to Dr Ejemen spell for everything . To everyone who doesn’t believe in spell, I was one of those ones at first. I wasn’t quite sure if I wanted to do this since I’ve tried others so-called spells casters and they did not work and was a waste of my time and money. However, when I read through the testimonies of other people at this website and after I talked to Dr Ejemen who answered all my questions and was very nice and sincere about everything, I decided to give it a try. I figured it would be my last try to get my guy back. So my story is that I was at my office when the guy I am in love with told me that he wasn’t in love with me and never will be and that he didn’t want to speak or see me again, especially since he was talking to this other girl. When I talked to Dr Ejemen about it, he let me know which spells would be most appropriate for me and I chose the ones that was to get him back to me and stay with me and want to marry me.As soon as he started on the spells, my guy came back into my life! It was a miracle to me and I’m so thankful for that. Things have been going well, and pretty much according to what Dr Ejemen said would happen. He’s always there when you need him,you can contact him via email [email protected]
