Carole Baskin has not been so surprised since Exotic Joe ran for president – she can’t figure out how Kate McKinnon It copied it so perfectly for the next Peacock series.
Carole tells TMZ… that she was amazed to see the star transformation of “SNL” for “Joe Exotic”… the drama series based on the Wondery podcast with the same title. As you know by now, Joe and Carole have major beef, to put it mildly.
He accuses her of having fed her second husband, Don Lewis, to a tiger.
Either way, she’s stunned because the producers nailed the wardrobe – Carole says she has almost the exact same outfit Kate wears in a new photo from the set. Even Kate’s necklace is perfect, which surprises Carole as she has never worn this jewel in the Netflix docuseries.
Her only explanation for Kate’s doppelganger act is so Baskin. Carole says Kate has to channel her inner cat lady to rock those flats, jeans, sunglasses, purse, and messy hair. Hell they even use the same 2012 Toyota pickup truck CB readers.
Besides, says Carole Kyle MacLachlan also did a good job describing her current husband, Howard – but it is not the same. She says Howard never wears short-sleeved shirts or wedding rings, but she always approves.
Carole says she’s heard the show will explore her relationship with Howard – but she doesn’t know how her battles with Joe will play out on the show.
Remember, she’s never spoken to him in real life, so she hopes everything the writers come up with is fact-based.
Carole’s only request though … she hopes Kate does not use real big cats in the series.
