Carole Baskin has emotional breakdown on ‘DWTS’: ‘It's really out of character for me’

‘Tiger King’ celebrity and ‘Dancing With the Stars’ contestant Carole Baskin has been the subject of much speculation in the disappearance of her former husband Don Lewis. In fact during her first appearance on the dancing competition Lewis’s family ran a commercial offering $100,000 for information connecting Baskin to the unsolved disappearance. And on Tuesday’s ‘DWTS’ she broke down over how difficult it has been being portrayed as a villain.

“All of the negative media attention that came out of Tiger King was extremely difficult because of the fact that my family was struggling so much with it,” said Baskin. “I've seen what the media can do to you and I hate that. I try even harder to be strong in their presence -- I keep it inside, and wait until everybody is gone before I can break down.”
