“I have no idea what Tiger King is,” Behar admitted on camera. “What they told me this morning is that she’s under suspicion and the husband is missing, so what would have been a really big coup for ABC was to have the husband on Dancing With the Stars. Now that would have been good television. Bring him back!”

In the Tiger King doco series, Baskin’s arch-nemesis Joe Exotic — he is currently in jail for plotting to kill Baskin — accused her of killing Lewis and feeding his remains to tigers. Baskin, who owned an animal sanctuary with Lewis at the time, has repeatedly denied any involvement in his disappearance.

“He’s no longer on the planet, Joy. He’s no longer with us,” Behar’s co-host Whoopi Goldberg informed her after the on-air gaffe.

 

Don Lewis was the second husband of Baskin. He went missing under unfortunate circumstances in 1997. But he died in 2002, was officially declared dead. Tiger King suspected Baskin’s involvement in his death, but she has denied it multiple times. It’s still a mystery.

Lewis Family aired a commercial on DWTS, which showed his daughters Gale, Lynda, and Donna asking viewers for information on the case with a $100,000 reward on the table. There is also a documentary on Netflix called Baskin, which deals with the issue.
