TMZ.com reported on Wednesday that the cast members of the History Channel’s mega hit ‘Pawn Stars’ are furious over the show’s spinoff ‘Cajun Pawn Stars’.
The spinoff, which was reviewed by Gambling911.com’s own Thomas Somach, garnered substantial ratings for the cable network.
Sources close to Left Field Pictures -- the production company behind "Pawn Stars" -- tell us the Vegas crew feels "blindsided" ... because they only learned about the show a few weeks ago ... when the network made the official announcement.
We're told Chumlee, Rick, Corey and the Old Man insist they were promised by the network that no "Pawn Stars" spin-off shows would be made of any kind ... and now feel like they were betrayed.
Sources say the guys are "really hurt" by the whole thing and feel like the new show is a "total knock-off".
The anger is being lodged against the History Channel, not the cast, apparently.
