No, even though A&E promotes them as a “husband and wife team of underdogs,” Brandi Passante and Jarrod Schultz have not gotten married. They have been together for 12 years, however, and have 2 children together; one boy, and one girl.
The reality TV stars from Storage Wars live in Lake Forrest, California, and their store, Now And Then Second Hand Store is located at:
- 810 North Tustin Street Orange, California Phone: (714) 771-2059
If you decide to pay them a visit, note: There's no "Now and Then" sign identifying it, just a generic thrift store sign.
Passante recently filed a lawsuit against Hunter Moore accusing him of publishing doctored photos and video he claims are of her in authentic adult-themed situations. Fans say that once downloaded the video gave their computer a virus.
She has since made a public statement letting fans know that there will never be any real photos or videos of her in the buff and that the experience has caused her to suffer physically and psychologically. Passante also worries that the fake video has damaged her professional reputation.
Dave Hester is also in the news after being fired from Storage Wars. He has a lawsuit against producers for wrongful firing saying he was let go after complaining about shady and illegal storage auction activities. Legal paperwork is also said to have revealed that Passante underwent plastic surgery paid for by producers in order to make her more attractive to male viewers and raise show ratings.
