Published Sep 14, 2020While some may view her as a villain of sorts, Tiger King's Carole Baskin has picked up the mantle of her show's infamy and joined the cast of Dancing with the Stars. If you watch the commercial breaks, however, you might see more of the Tiger King controversy unfold as the family of her missing husband has purchased some ad space on the show.
As anyone who watched Tiger King will remember, Baskin's millionaire husband went missing under mysterious circumstances in 1997. Some, including titular Tiger King Joe Exotic, claim Baskin was involved — a suggestion she has vehemently denied.
Still, Baskin's missing husband Don Lewis will come up in conversation again with a new commercial from his family. Don's family have teamed up with attorney Don Lewis to air a commercial during Baskin's big Tiger King debut.
According to TMZ, the spot will run during tonight's premiere. It features Don's daughters Gale, Lynda and Donna, plus his former assistant Anne McQueen and the family attorney.
TMZ also suggested that Don's family feel that hiring Baskin was an insensitive move on ABC's part in that they believe she had some involvement in Don's disappearance. Again, she has always maintained her innocence.
