AMERICAN Pickers’ Danielle Colby said that it was “okay to be apart” from others if they “don’t fit” after Frank Fritz was fired from the show.
Danielle, 45, has reportedly picked a side between Frank, 55, and Mike Wolf, 57, as their ongoing feud heats up.
In her lengthy Instagram post, the American Pickers star wrote: “Sometimes your personality just won’t fit into their world or narrative in a positive way no matter how hard you try or how much you want to belong or be with them or ‘be a part’, of their circle, sometimes you just have to be ok with being apart from them.
The reality star continued: “It’s ok. Just be the best you can be today. You won’t always fit in, it’s usually a protection for everyone.
“You can still work for the greater good of everyone, including those who hold you on the outside.”
The TV star told her followers to “walk in peace and lead with love and remember that sometimes the most difficult folks for us to love are the ones who need love the most.”
The inspirational quote stated: ‘We all want to be extraordinary and we all just want to fit in.
“Unfortunately, extraordinary people rarely fit in.'”
Danielle, who met Dolly Parton on the show, concluded: “It’s ok. Not everyone needs to like you. Just be sure that in those sacred moments alone, that YOU like yourself.”
Currently based in Puerto Rico, Danielle helped with the rebuilding of the island while she dedicated her time to orphanages and animal shelters, according to the History Channel.
Though Danielle has been listed as a cast member on the show’s website, she hasn’t appeared on the series as viewers speculated she had left the show.
Frank also hasn’t appeared on American Pickers in recent seasons due to the grueling back surgery, which left him with about 185 stitches and two rods in his spine.
‘HIGHS & LOWS’
Recently, Mike confirmed Frank’s exit from the show on social media.
He captioned a photo of the cast: “I have known Frank for as long as I can remember, he’s been like a brother to me.
“The journey that Frank, Dani, and I started back in 2009, like all of life, has come with its highs and lows, blessings and challenges, but it has also been the most rewarding.”
Mike concluded: “I will miss Frank, just like all of you, and I pray for the very best and all good things for him on the next part of his journey.”
Frank told the Sun about his side of the feud with Mike.
He said: “I haven’t talked to Mike in two years. He knew my back was messed up, but he didn’t call me up and ask how I was doing. That’s just how it is.
Frank added: “That’s fine. It’s like you’ve got Aerosmith and there’s Steven Tyler and he’s the frontman. I found my spot, I’m second and he’s number one on the show.
“That’s no problem with me, maybe he does have a problem.”
He would like to return to the History show and “get back to my job” that he appeared in since 2010.
Fans have picked sides between Frank and Mike due to their ongoing feud, as viewers have also threatened to stop watching American Pickers.
