Family of Don Lewis, Carole Baskin's Missing Husband, Airing Commercial During Her 'DWTS' Debut

Some huge news just came in about tonight’s Dancing with the Stars premiere and one of the celebrities competing for the Mirror Ball trophy, Carole Baskin.

If you don’t know, Carole rose to fame just a few months ago as one of the key figures in Netflix’s Tiger King. One big story line that came out of the show was the mysterious disappearance of her millionaire first husband, Don Lewis. Many assumed Carole had something to do with his disappearance, though nothing has been proven.

Well, Don‘s family purchased airtime during the first commercial break of Dancing with the Stars to “implore the public to send tips regarding his mysterious disappearance,” TMZ reports.

The commercial will feature Don‘s three daughters Gale, Lynda and Donna, his former assistant, Anne McQueen, and the family attorney who bought the airtime on ABC. According to TMZ, all of them “allege Carole has something to do with Don‘s disappearance.”

The family feel placing Carole on television in this manner “undermines the ongoing investigation into his whereabouts and is a ‘grossly insensitive’ decision by the show’s producers.”
