Colby Supports Wolfe During ‘American Pickers’ Feud With Fritz
Following the recent news that Frank Fritz will not be returning to American Pickers, both Wolfe and Colby released statements about the situation.
During a recent interview with the Sun, Fritz revealed that he originally left the show due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He hurt his back, which resulted in having surgery, and then he went to rehab for his alcohol addiction. Fritz stated he hasn’t spoken to American Picker co-star, Wolfe in two years. Wolfe also didn’t try to reach out after Fritz had his surgery.
After Fritz’s interview made headlines, Wolfe shared on Instagram that he wished his former co-star the best in his next adventure. “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.”
Colby also shares on her Instagram account how she appreciates Wolfe for all he has done on American Pickers.
“Thank you for the last decade of advocacy towards myself and others on set. @mikewolfeamericanpicker I’m proud of how you have handled the last 12 years and look forward to many more years of rolling around this big blue marble together.”
She also addressed Fritz leaving American Pickers by writing, “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.”
Danielle goes on to add that she hopes that Frank receives all the help he needs to become well after years of being unwell. “It is not my place to speak ill of someone who needs help so I will keep my comments uplifting.”
