Franco previously told The Sun of their falling out: "No he hablado con Mike en dos años. Sabía que mi espalda estaba hecha un desastre, pero no me llamó y me preguntó cómo estaba. Así es como es."

While Frank refused to reveal the exact cause of the falling out, he claimed there was tension over their shared American Pickers stardom.

Él explicó: “El espectáculo se inclina hacia él. 1,000 por ciento. Ni siquiera puedo inclinarme tanto para mostrarte cuánto.

“Esta bien. A menos que estuviera cortando a alguien más y los dos nos estuviéramos riendo”.. Encontré mi lugar, Yo soy el segundo y él es el número uno en el programa. Eso no es un problema para mi, A menos que estuviera cortando a alguien más y los dos nos estuviéramos riendo”.

But Frank insisted he is “bigger” when it comes to viewers.

The fan-favorite said: “I’m not arrogant and I’m more of a regular ol’ guy. El tipo que se conecta conmigo es el tipo que compra un 30 paquete de Busch Light y una pizza el fin de semana. ese es mi chico. mi chico compra un $150 firmar, no un $8,000 firmar.

“I’m more of the common man guy, I haven’t found a $100,000 vase or any Michelangelo stuff. I’ve never really had a big, big score like that.

“But all the small scores are the bread and butter, and that’s my deal.”

Frank then said it would be “hard” to “put the show on after not talking to somebody for two years.”

Incluso admitió: “I think Mike wants to get his brother Robbie in there to replace me. I don’t know why he’s behaving like that towards me.

“You couldn’t just stick two people in a van and get the chemistry you get from me and Mike. We’ve known each other for about 40 años. We can finish each other’s sentences.

“When everybody is getting along and there’s no drama, me and him are very good together.”

The collector added: “I’m just trying to get through life like everybody else and be as happy as I possibly can. Life is what you put into it. If you don’t put much into it you don’t get a lot out of it.”

A rep for Mike did not immediately respond to The Sun’s request for comment at the time of the interview.


Mike was the one to reveal Frank had been fired from the show en julio 2021.

Escribió en Instagram: “I have known Frank for as long as I can remember, ha sido como un hermano para mi. El viaje que Frank, Dani y yo empezamos de nuevo 2009, como toda la vida, ha llegado con sus altibajos, bendiciones y desafíos, pero también ha sido de lo más gratificante.

"El apoyo que todos nos han brindado ha sido un recordatorio constante de cuál ha sido siempre el mensaje del programa.; a través de estos lugares, gente, y cosas que todos tenemos en común. Estamos aquí no solo para cuidar el pasado, sino también unos a otros ".

Mike concluyó: "Extrañaré a Frank, como todos ustedes, y oro por lo mejor y todas las cosas buenas para él en la próxima parte de su viaje ”.
