After weeks of silence, Paul Richardson and his wife, Kayla Sheets, reveal why they left the show. Taking to her Twitter account, Kayla wrote a lengthy post and blamed "Dustin Hurt" for their reason to depart from the show.
"Sorry everyone, I fought hard to be on Season 4 but ultimately Dustin said he wouldn't do the show if I came back. I think the little man was intimidated that I could do everything that he did, despite being a woman. I have no regrets for standing up against him. He is a coward."
Dustin Hurt is the show's lead cast and his father, Fred Hurt. The father-son duo has come a long way when it comes to the success of "Gold Rush: White Water." The Gold Rush spin-off is on its fourth season, which implies the fans love it.
