Loose Women host Andrea McLean was left filing for time during today's edition of the daytime ITV series after being unable to contact Carole Baskin.
Bosses of the ITV show had set up an interview with the star of Netflix 's Tiger King in a UK exclusive earlier this week.
However, awkwardly Carole, 59, was a no show.
In a pre-recorded clip the Loose Women panel could be seen waiting for the call from Carole which never came.
Looking annoying, Denise Welch said: "I've come all the way down from Cheshire for this!"
Trying to smooth over the fail, Andrea said: "We were here waiting for 45 mins ….she is in America and the team were trying to get through to her.
"There was an advert played on Dancing With The Stars which involved the family of her former husband which may have spooked her.
Carole has categorically denied any involvement in the disappearance of her ex-husband.
"We can totally understand as she had to go on live TV but we want to say to you Carole the door is always open…"
Making light of the situation she added: "But only when Denise is on."
Back in the live studio, Andrea continued: "It caused a whole transatlantic search.
"Carole emailed saying 'I am so sorry I screwed up my ever changing schedule and my phone is ringing off the hook after being supportive or wanting interviews."
Andrea went on to reveal that Carole said they could call her anytime around the clock for a chat.
Keen to get a chat, they decided to call the TV star live in the studio.
However, things didn't turn out as hoped.
After cutting to the gallery to producer Doug, they released that Carole wasn't going to pick up the phone.
Putting out the olive branch once more, Andrea added: "Carole the door is always open for you to have a chat with us.
"She has promised to give us her UK exclusive interview."
