There are a variety of reasons people continue to watch Pawn Stars on History for more than a decade to this time. Naturally, those who love history are fascinated by the plethora of unique, valuable objects which occasionally enter the shop, including the humidor belonging to John F. Kennedy, however, just like every other reality show, people would like to see drama between the actors and that’s not out of reach in The World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop.
The principal staff members of the store are Rick Harrison, his son Corey and Corey’s best friend Chumlee. Richard “Old Man” Harrison was also a major character on the show, but unfortunately passed away in June the year 2018. They got into many arousals between themselves and it was enjoyable to watch them smack each other’s biceps as it was to watch them negotiate over a rare antique.
Naturally, it requires several people to manage a pawn shop and over time several crew members have appeared into as well as out of the show. Although they haven’t been present on Pawn Stars for years, one of the most adored team members is Olivia Black, who joined the shop in 2012, but was then dismissed from the show after appearing in just 13 episodes. If you’ve been wondering what was going on with Black when Corey and Chumlee were so enthralled towards her then here’s the answer.
Olivia Black was fired from camera appearances after revealing images of her were brought to the attention of the media.
Like every other show there are rules that the cast is required to adhere to. One of these rules is the fact that Rick Harrison and his team occasionally have to purchase things they would not normally purchase in order for the show to be more entertaining. From what it appears there’s also a policy regarding the inability to post sexually explicit photos of yourself posted on the internet. Olivia Black learned this the difficult way after being immediately removed from the show after photos from her experience with SuicideGirls appeared on the internet.
The company that produced the series, Leftfield Pictures, fired her right after she joined to the team due to her past. This resulted in Black seeking to file an action in the name of Leftfield Pictures (via Fox News). To be clear, the lawsuit was specifically directed at Leftfield Pictures, the company behind the show and and not that of the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop. She was able to continue working in the shop: She was unable to appear on camera, however it didn’t take long before she quit her job and also (via Screen Rant).
Since leaving this show Black returns to the same thing that led to her being fired at the beginning -adult-oriented content. Apart from posing on SuicideGirls on a regular basis, she’s been a go-go dancer and cam girl. Given that she has an approximate net worth of $350,000, we’d guess she’s not much to look shabby following her loss her Pawn Stars gig.
