DWTS' Carole Baskin comes out as bisexual and reveals she 'might have been born in the wrong body'10/20/2020
TIGER King star Carole Baskin has revealed she is bisexual.
Carole told Pink News that she has "always considered" herself to be bisexual, "even though I have never had a wife."
"I could easily have a wife as much as a husband, as much as I feel about us, I just don't see us as different genders or colors," she shared.
The Dancing WIth The Stars hopeful added that she felt she was “probably born into the wrong body” because she was such a “tomboy" growing up.
"I always thought that there was something off there, that I couldn’t quite put my finger on," she revealed, sharing that she discovered her sexuality in thr 1980s when she was working closely with the LGBT+ community.
But when asked about if her sworn enemy Joe Exotic is an ally to the LGBTQ community, she said: "It's not a matter of what you're sexual preferences are – he's just a deviant in the way he treats all life, animal life.
"It's all about him, not a community he associates himself with – he's an embarassment to the human community."
Joe is a self-described "gay, gun-toting cowboy with a mullet," who went through a string of husbands in his lifetime, though not all of them were legitimate, thanks to gay marriage not being legal until recent years.
Carole found infamy when she appeared on Netflix series Tiger King, a seven-episode series focusing on wildcat enthusiast Joe Exotic and his hatred for Carole.
The series explores the feud between the two, which had been going on for years and landed Joe in prison.
The series also bought back to light the disappearance of her first husband, Don Lewis, who vanished more than two decades ago at the age of 59.
The last person to see Lewis alive was Carole, who has denied having any role in his disappearance.
A body has not been found, and Lewis was pronounced legally dead in Florida in 2002.
While the series had fueled speculation about a possible murder, no one has been charged with the crime – and the case remains open.
But Carole is now reportedly being sued by Don's daughters Lynda, Donna and Gale, and his former assistant, Anne McQueen for defamation after jokes were made about his disappearance on ABC show Dancing With The Stars.
On the first episode of the new season, Carole performed a paso doble to Eye of the Tiger with pro dancer Pasha Pashkov.
In the defamation law suit, seen by TMZ, his family is upset that a DWTS judge said Carole "didn't quite kill the paso double, it was kind of sedated."
Joe is serving 22 years in prison after being found guilty of trying to hire two different people to muder Carole – and for killing tigers at his animal park.
It was revealed that he planned to ask President Trump for a pardon.
He is said to be "thrilled" by the public's reaction to his Netflix series and wants to become a "criminal justice reformer."
