American Pickers’ Danielle Colby slams ‘unwell’ Frank Fritz for ‘causing pain’ & begs star to ‘get help’ after firing

AMERICAN Pickers star Danielle Colby slammed Frank Fitz for "causing pain" and begged the "unwell" star to "get help" after he was fired from the show.

Frank's termination was confirmed by costar Mike Wolfe - the two were involved in a nasty feud.

Danielle, 45, took to Instagram to share a photo alongside Mike, as the pair smiled for the camera.

However, Danielle had quite the lengthy caption to go along with the happy snap.

After praising Mike, 57, for how he "handled the last 12 years," Danielle then wrote: "I’m truly saddened for the loss of Frank on the show. I’m incredibly sad for his struggles.

"I have personally watched everything over the last decade. I have many thoughts but won’t speak them as they are only my my thoughts, not gospel."


She continued: "I wish things could have been different but we must be accountable for our actions when we cause instability or pain and suffering to others.

"Frank caused so much pain for himself that it has been hard to watch. I truly hope Frank receives all the help he needs to become well after years of being unwell.


Frank, 55, previously stepped away from the show to recover from back surgery with his last episode airing in March 2020.

The Sun previously reported the reality star lost 65 pounds after living a healthier lifestyle and remaining sober from alcohol.

Last month, Mike shared with fans that Frank would not be returning to American Pickers, explaining: "... I will miss Frank, just like all of you, and I pray for the very best and all good things for him on the next part of his journey.”

Frank joined the cast of the popular History Channel program in 2010, but his absence for the last year and a half has seemingly gone unnoticed.


Despite their decade-long co-hosting relationship, Frank previously told The Sun that he hasn't spoken to Mike in two years.

Frank said: "[Mike] knew my back was messed up, but he didn’t call me up and ask how I was doing. That’s just how it is.”

While the exact cause of the tension wasn't made clear, Frank did say: "The show is tilted towards him 1,000 percent. I can’t even bend that far down to show you how much.

"That’s fine. It’s like you’ve got Aerosmith and there’s Steven Tyler and he’s the front man. I found my spot, I’m second and he’s number one on the show. That’s no problem with me, maybe he does have a problem.”

He added: "I’m not arrogant and I’m more of a regular ol’ guy. The guy that connects with me is the guy who buys a 30 pack of Busch Light and a pizza on the weekend. That’s my guy. My guy buys a $150 sign, not an $8,000 sign..."
