Carole Baskin Claims That Her Ex-Husband Don Lewis Is Alive And Well In Costa Rica, But Local Authorities Say Otherwise
The name Carole Baskin immediately conjures up images of toilet paper shortages and despair since she and her equally insane Tiger King nemesis Joe Exotic will always be recognized as the real stars of the pandemic. And even years later, the story surrounding the disappearance of Carole’s first husband, Don Lewis, remains a mystery. Most people say she turned him into meow mix for her killer cats and kittens, but Carole has maintained her innocence. Late last year, Carole claimed that Don is alive and well in South America, but local authorities have dumped that claim in a kitty litter box.
Well, it’s time to test what little relevance anything Tiger King-related still has, as the Peacock miniseries, Joe vs Carole, will soon be upon us. The Netflix documentary, Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem, and Madness, came out in 2020 when people were locked in their houses because of a pandemic, and had nothing else to do or be interested in, and it took on a life of its own. The story of the big cat breeder, Joe “Exotic” Schreibvogel, and his feud with the big cat rescuer, Carole Baskin, was everywhere. Joe became a momentary celebrity because of how bizarre and tacky he was in the Netflix doc, and Carole as well became an internet character and even got on Dancing With The Stars after it was suggested she killed her first husband and fed him to her big cats. And now, here we are, two years later and a full show about how Joe and Carole fought is coming out starring John Cameron Mitchell as Joe and Kate McKinnon as Carole. We already got a teaser trailer last month and now the full trailer is out.
Carole Baskin, breakout star of the 2020 Netflix docuseries Tiger King. Big cat enthusiast. Living meme. Floaty statement blouse aficionado. Suspect in the disappearance of her husband. And now, the plaintiff in a lawsuit filed against the world’s largest streaming series. Carole has sued Netflix, the company responsible for launching her into the heights of pop culture notoriety known only by those relevant enough to dance amongst the stars. And it’s because Carole doesn’t want a single frame of her face to appear in Tiger King 2, which is scheduled to drop on Netflix sometime this month.
Before Donald Trump and Melania Trump left the White House today (with him heading to Mar-A-Largo and her probably heading straight to her divorce lawyers), he laid down his last official duty as POTUS, which was to put a Whoopee cushion on President Joe Biden’s Oval Office chair. And before that, he did his second to last official doody as POTUS by leaving a doody in President Joe Biden’s Oval Office bathroom. And before that, he did his third to last official duty by throwing out 73 pardons and 70 commutations including to those whose tongues went further up his ass. And as Ben told us yesterday, Lil Wayne’s tongue did just that and Trump made it official by pardoning him. Trump’s only last fwend Steve Bannon also got a pardon, and rapper Kodak Black got a commutation. But Joe Exotic, aka Tiger King, is going to have to keep using a Sharpie to draw tiger and cheetah print on his prison jumpsuits to keep it glamorous in the chokey because bitch didn’t get shit!
Earlier this year, Tiger King‘s Joe Exotic was convicted for trying to have his rival Carole Baskin assassinated and for several wildlife violations. He was sentenced to 22 years in prison and now thinks that he’s about to be pardoned. But he also thought he could sue the government for millions of dollars while in jail, so… His lawyer, Eric Love, spoke with ABC News and apparently, Donald Trump could pardon Joe on his way out of office. Well, since the American government has been one long reality show, Trump freeing Joe Exotic would make for a fitting series finale.
Carole Baskin, the 59-year-old big-cat rescuer who was famous for fifteen minutes because coronavirus quarantine was keeping sane people indoors and so they all watched Tiger King for some reason, is getting sued. Carole, who is currently doing the least on Dancing with the Accused Murderers Stars, has long been accused of murdering her husband (who disappeared one day), Don Lewis, and feeding him to her big cats after running his dead body through a meat grinder. His family is now suing her for allegedly being part of jokes about Don’s disappearance on DWTS.
