Danielle took to Instagram on Friday to share a photo of herself underwater.

The American Pickers star swam away from the camera as she showed off her booty in a bikini.

She shared a Frida Khalo quote in the caption, which read: “I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do.

“I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too.

“Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.”

Danielle concluded the caption by sharing that the “flashback Friday” photo was taken while she was “swimming with the Blue Tang.”


She shared the post after her longtime co-star Frank, 55, was fired from American Pickers.

After last appearing during a March 2020 episode, Frank took time off to recover from back surgery, that left him with 185 stitches and two rods in his spine.

During his time off the show, Frank lost 65 pounds due to his healthier lifestyle and his decision to cut out alcohol.

He previously told The Sun that he entered rehab for alcohol addiction in Iowa for 77 days and is 11 months sober.

Before his firing was confirmed, Frank expressed his desire to return to the History show.

He told The Sun: “I would like to come back to the show. I was doing it for 11 years.

“I’m 100 percent recovered now and I’m ready to roll and go back on the show.”


However, his co-star Mike Wolfe revealed Frank was fired from the show in July on Instagram.

Mike, 57, previously told The Sun: “We all do care about Frank and we want him back on the show. I would love to talk with him again, we would absolutely love to, but he just can’t get it right.

“Frank is just going through a lot personally with addictions. It’s unfortunate that he’s made decisions that have him the way he is.”


Earlier this month, Danielle revealed she has resumed filming for the upcoming season of American Pickers with Mike.

She captioned a selfie of the co-stars: “Out on the road again with my best friend and my big brother whose I support fully and stand behind. Thank you for the last decade of advocacy towards myself and others on set.

@mikewolfeamericanpicker I’m proud of how you have handled the last 12 years and look forward to many more years of rolling around this big blue marble together.”

Her caption also noted of Frank’s firing, as she wrote: “I’m truly saddened for the loss of Frank on the show. I’m incredibly sad for his struggles. I have personally watched everything over the last decade. I have many thoughts but won’t speak them as they are only my my thoughts, not gospel.

“I wish things could have been different but we must be accountable for our actions when we cause instability or pain and suffering to others. Frank caused so much pain for himself that it has been hard to watch. I truly hope Frank receives all the help he needs to become well after years of being unwell.

“It is not my place to speak Ill of someone who needs help so I will keep my comments uplifting. I’m sending love to everyone… I hope everybody gets well. I hope everybody continues to love each other even through the hard s**t.”
