'Storage Hunters' Stars Sue After Alleged Infamatory Remarks Were Made About Them THR
TruTV and the production company T Group Productions were sued by two cast members of "Storage Hunters," with the stars alleging they were improperly cut from a second season, according to The Hollywood Reporter's Hollywood, Esq. The couple claim other causes as well.
Scott Tassone and Chrissy Tassone allege they were cut because of some negative things said about them by employees of T Group Productions, the story says.
The suit claims that "defamatory and harassing actions were made in an attempt to cause irreparable damage to plaintiffs businesses, name and reputation," such as alleging that the Tassones were liars, con artists and thieves engaging in scams and running illegal businesses, among other damaging statements, the story says.
The lawsuit claims there was an effort to interfere with their employment, although the pair were "exemplary employees … well-liked by the production staff and the viewing audience," the suit claims.
A representative for Turner Broadcasting, which is the parent of TruTV, had no immediate comment, the story says.
