Attention all you cool cats and kittens, Carole Baskin will be joining the new cast of ‘Dancing With the Stars.”
Baskin, along with her signature catchphrase, gained fame on Netflix’s true crime documentary series “Tiger King.” The series was a pop culture phenomenon and centered on Baskin’s long-standing feud with rival zookeeper ‘Joe Exotic.’
The eccentric ‘Exotic,’ whose real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage, is currently serving a 22-year prison sentence for a variety of charges including plotting to have Baskin murdered.
