American Pickers star Danielle Colby has broken her silence surrounding the feud on the popular series on History (DStv 186).

The series follows collectable "pickers" Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz as they travel around America and snoop inside warehouses, barns, garages and all kinds of rundown buildings to pick out items and then haggle over prices with the owners. Danielle runs the office at Mike Wolfe's Antique Archaeology.

In an interview with The Sun, Frank said he hasn't spoken to Mike in two years. Mike then shared on Instagram that Frank would not be returning to the show.

Entertainment Weekly reports that Danielle confirmed to the publication that she is filming more episodes of the show in Ohio with Mike.

On Monday, Danielle posted a picture on Instagram of her and Mike on the road. Alongside it, she wrote a lengthy caption in which she praised Mike for how he has "handled the past 12 years" and expressed sadness about Frank leaving the show and his struggles.

"Out on the road again with my best friend and my big brother whose I support fully and stand behind. 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.

"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 thoughts, not gospel. 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."

She added that Frank caused so much pain for himself and that it was hard to watch and that she hopes he receives all the help he needs to be well.

Danielle said that the only reason she is speaking out is that everybody is speculating on her words, which are being taken out of context in tabloids.

"So if you wanna know how I feel. Here's exactly how I feel. I hope everybody gets well. I hope everybody continues to love each other even through the hard shit," she ended the post.
