Popular History Channel show American Pickers has dominated the network for the past decade (wow!), but are its stars Mike Wolfe and Danielle Colby more than just good friends? With Danielle's most recent divorce, fans are wondering if friendship may have turned to marriage.
Mike and Danielle have a long history that predates 'American Pickers.'
Danielle has been a staple of the show since its inception, and she has known Mike since before American Pickers was sold to the network. He helped her out on personal projects during his early YouTube days and later asked if she would hold the fort at his antique shop shortly after the show was picked up.
In October of 2020, the pair celebrated their friend-iversary and shared a pic on Instagram with the sweet caption, "Time flies! Do you know [Mike] and [Danielle] have been pickin' partners in crime for 25 years!"
This long-tenured friendship doesn't seem to be coming to an end anytime soon, but has it blossomed into more? It looks like that is not the case.
Mike and Danielle have been in a series of serious relationships with other people.
Before the show even aired, Danielle was married to Englishman Robert Strong. Danielle and Robert share two children. In fact, Danielle's children were the inspiration for several of her tattoos. Danielle has acknowledged that the success of the show negatively affected her first marriage, but it certainly didn't deter her from pursuing love again!
Danielle was then married to French artist Alexandre De Meyer. They were married in 2015 and reportedly split in 2018. Danielle has not been vocal about the reasons for their divorce, but rest assured, she's doing fine! In fact, Danielle now appears to be engaged to photographer and artist Jeremy Scheuch!
Mike, on the other hand, has been married only once, to a woman named Jodi Faeth. Jodi and Mike met in 1994 and started dating shortly thereafter. They eventually tied the knot back in 2012 and share a daughter named Charlie. In July of 2021, TMZ reported that Jodi had filed for divorce from Mike. He has since been linked to fellow motorcycle enthusiast Leticia Cline.
While Mike and Danielle might not be romantically involved, their powerful friendship has definitely withstood the test of time. You can catch up on episodes of American Pickers on Hulu.
