‘Tiger King’s’ Carole Baskin claims her ‘dead’ husband has been found alive and the internet has thoughts

I get it.

Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News

Rust producer and actor Alec Baldwin and armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed will each be charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter for the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins after Baldwin shot Hutchins and director Joel Souza with what was supposed to be a “cold gun.”

Hutchins’ family released a statement:

“It is a comfort to the family that, in New Mexico, no one is above the law,” their statement reads in part. “We support the charges, will fully cooperate with this prosecution, and fervently hope the justice system works to protect the public and hold accountable those who break the law.”

HOLD ON ONE GODDAMN SECOND: Carole Baskin’s husband might be alive? Apparently, in a 2021 interview, Baskin claims that the producers of Tiger King 2 got their hands on a letter from Homeland Security to Florida’s Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office claiming that her former husband Don Lewis was alive and well in Costa Rica. However, the Sheriff’s Office is saying, “Nuh-uh.”

So, who can say?

Reportedly, the HFPA wasn’t happy with Jerrod Carmichael’s Golden Globe performance:

Carmichael, who claimed he was only asked to host because he’s Black, then revealed his salary for the gig ($500,000, though some sources say it was as high as $750,000) and confirmed that he declined three requests to meet with HFPA president Helen Hoehne ahead of the show. Being name-checked so prominently at the top of the telecast — with Carmichael going so far as to call the meeting offer “a trap” — left Hoehne shocked and upset, per multiple sources. Multiple sources say Hoehne was seen being consoled by friends in the ballroom bar.


Boy Meets World actor Ben Savage has announced he’s running for Congress for Adam Schiff’s seat. I would be dismissive, but if Schiff runs for Senator Dianne Feinstein’s seat as some are speculating … maybe he has a shot?


Y’all were really excited about that Night Court reboot, huh? This week’s premiere was the highest-rated comedy debut on any of the big four networks in five years — numbers not since the reboot of The Conners or the reboot of Will & Grace. Are you seeing a pattern here? How long until they reboot Cheers, Family Ties, or The Cosby Show?

Or … you know … not.

MILF Manor premiered a few days ago and the big twist is exactly what everyone suspected it would be:

An argument that Apple TV+ is the best deal in the business.

In alarming news, actor Julian Sands has been missing for 6 days after going on a hike  on Mt. Baldy in the San Gabriel Mountains. Here’s hoping that he is found safely.

One thought on “‘Tiger King’s’ Carole Baskin claims her ‘dead’ husband has been found alive and the internet has thoughts

  1. Loved the original Night Court, so watched the reboot expectantly. It was HORRIBLE! Will watch another episode to see if it gets any better, but will most likely drop the show.
