“The View” host Sunny Hostin said because she “prosecuted murder cases” she couldn’t “watch” “Tiger King” star Carole Baskin on the premier of “Dancing With The Stars.”
The comments came Tuesday during a panel discussion on the ABC talk show when Whoopi Goldberg talked about the hit documentary which “casts suspicion on whether Baskin had anything to do with her husband’s disappearance” in 1997. He was declared dead in 2002. (RELATED: REPORT: Carole Baskin Could Appear On This Season Of ‘Dancing With The Stars’)
“I have no idea what ‘Tiger King’ is,” Joy Behar answered. “What they told me this morning is that she’s under suspicion and the husband is missing. So what would have been a big coup for ABC was to have the husband on ‘Dancing with The Stars.’ Now, that would have been good television. Bring him back!” (RELATED: Carole Baskin Now Owns Joe Exotic’s Zoo After Winning Lawsuit)
Goldberg replied, “No, no, he’s no longer on the planet.”
“He’s dead,” Meghan McCain added. “He’s dead. He got fed to a tiger.”
“Oh, I thought he was just missing,” Behar replied. “Oh, so he’s dead.”
“She fed him to a tiger,” McCain repeated.
