There is no doubt that Joe Exotic is the breakout star from the Netflix series Tiger King. Then again, that’s not saying a lot among a cast with so many questionable characters.
Comparatively, there doesn’t seem to be a ton of Carole Baskin super fans out there. This is primarily because of the cloud of suspicion around the disppearance of her late husband Don Lewis. Many people believe that Carole fed him to the tigers or she put his body in a meat grinder. I mean, she did explain in the documentary how this would be plausible if the a human was dipped in sardine oil. Recently, her co-star Jeff Lowe said that Carole reported that meat grinder was stolen right after Don’s disappearance. While no one has been convincted of a crime, a lot of people are talking about Carole and her possible involvement in this.
Hey all you cool cats and kittens! We are back with another Tiger King story. Despite Joe Exotic being the intended
train wreck star of the show, one thing people can’t stop talking about is whether or not Carole Baskin killed her husband, Don Lewis. Is there anyone out there who has watched that doesn’t think Carole killed her husband? Anyone? Show yourselves now!
Well, I know the people who DO think Carole killed him and I am one of them. The others are Joe and his whole team of merry maniacs (obviously). Also Jeff Lowe and his crew. Don’s old attorney/friend, Joe Fritz, even suspects foul play and wants the cops to come over for a beer to discuss it. Then there’s Don’s family and former assistant, Anne McQueen. Hell, even O.J. Simpson got on the Carole Killed Him Train.
If you haven’t watched Tiger King on Netflix, please run and don’t walk to check it out. It’s got everything – rednecks, intrigue, murder, weirdos, and tigers. Also, the stories coming out of this docuseries will positively sustain you during this quarantine. Trust me.
One of the biggest stories to come out of Tiger King isn’t just Carole Baskin allegedly killing her husband, Don Lewis. Nay, it’s how Joe Exotic ended up in jail on charges of animal abuse and the murder-for-hire plot of his nemesis, Carole. Joe is currently serving 22 years on 17 counts. He’s busy appealing and even has Cardi B believing that he was set up. Me, I’m not so sure. Ok, I am sure – he belongs in a cage, like the animal he is!
Tiger King is just the gift that keeps on giving, especially during these quarantined times. Watching the seven-episode Netflix series gave us all a lot to think about and plenty to say. And, the content just kept on coming. Pretty much everyone who took part in the docuseries has done interviews and made statements about the dramatic storylines (i.e. the multiple murder allegations). Even, SPOILER ALERT: Joe Exotic has communicated his opinions even though he’s locked up in prison.
With Joe Exotic put away, that’s the end of Tiger King, right? Nope, not at all. Aside from the news stories that roll out every day, there’s also a scripted version of Tiger King in the works. But, wait. There is more though. There is actually one more episode of Tiger King headed your way. Very soon too.
Tiger King is the gift that keeps on giving. Usually when a show is over, we have covered all the bases and there is only so much we can say. But not Tiger King. Every day, more and more comes out. A lot of that is due to Carole Baskin and all the wild accusations that she killed her former husband, Don Lewis. The docuseries certainly covered it but since it’s been over, seems like we are just getting started.
Carole maintains her innocence and vehemently denies she had anything to do with Don’s death. So does her current husband, Howard Baskin. But they seem to be the only ones that are claiming her innocence. At this point, it’s hard to ignore all the stories coming out against her.
If you didn’t watch Tiger King, I want to know what you’ve been watching in quarantine. Even OJ Simpson is sharing his two cents on Tiger King.
Specifically, he has shared his thoughts about whether or not Carole Baskin killed her second husband Don Lewis. The irony in OJ giving his analysis on this topic is not lost on me. Not at all.
We can’t cover every news story ourselves. Fortunately, there are a lot of great sources for reality TV news and gossip. Check out these links from some of our favorite sites in the April 5 edition of Sunday Morning Tea.
Another day, another pop culture tie-in to the Netflix show Tiger King. Recently, a photo resurfaced on Doc Antle’s Instagram account featuring Southern Charm cast member Naomie Olindo and her man Metul Shah.
The photo is from June 2019, long before Tiger King came into my life. Nevertheless, the couple still got a lot of flack for visiting the safari in Myrtle Beach.
