On November 27, “Dog the Bounty Hunter” star Beth Chapman underwent an emergency surgery to remove a life-threatening blockage. Doctors discovered that her cancer had returned.


Her husband and co-star Duane “Dog” Chapman revealed that the doctors had found a lump in her throat was double the size of the mass she had previously. He shared that he cried all the time because of her latest diagnosis.

Beth Chapman, 51, was informed that her cancer had returned and was now spreading to her lungs. Doctors have called it “incurable.”

Her husband, Duane “Dog” Chapman, 65, has remained by her side throughout. He shared:

“They say the cancer follows the path of least resistance, so it goes downward.”


For more on this story go to our Twitter account @amomama_usa. Speaking about the cancer spreading, Duane said, “Half of her lung was full of water.”

"I love my honey so much, I don’t know what I’m gonna do… I’m like…I think I’m in a bad dream and I need to wake up."

Last week, doctors at a hospital in Los Angeles had to drain five ounces of fluid from her lung after she was rushed there. As daunting as it all seems, her husband revealed that he had no choice but to stay strong for her.


He shared:

“I have to keep faith. I am the leader of the family. She thinks she is, but I am. I have to keep it where I don’t have any doubts and keep everything positive. I love my honey so much, I don’t know what I’m gonna do… I’m like…I think I’m in a bad dream and I need to wake up. People keep saying to me, ‘Dog, are you OK?’ But I’m not the one who’s sick.”

The reality star confessed that he prayed a lot for his wife’s recovery “and I cry all the time.” Beth has been told to undergo four to eight chemotherapy sessions in Los Angeles, however, the couple is exploring other options as well.


Even though things aren’t looking so good for Beth, her husband revealed that she was still a fighter. He said:

“She’s trying to still advise me on my work and I’m like, ‘Honey, I was Dog The Bounty Hunter before I met you, stay out of it.’ And she woke up the other night and told me, ‘You’re so damn stupid, if I die you’re going to lose the farm,’ and I said, ‘Beth, we don’t even have a farm.’”


Duane also shared that he wasn’t going anywhere and would be right by her side. He recalled a recent incident at the hospital after her latest surgery.


The reality star revealed:

“First thing she when woke up from the [latest] surgery, she said, ‘Where’s the dog?’ and the nurse was confused. She said, ‘Did she bring her dog with her?” and I said, ‘yes, ma’am.’ I’m here every moment I can be for her.”

The couple who currently reside in Colorado rose to fame on the A&E series “Dog the Bounty Hunter” which aired for eight seasons from August 2004 to May 2012. They’ve had several spin-offs since.


In 2006, the two married after being on-and-off for 16 years. They share two children namely, Bonnie and Garry, while Duane has several other children from previous relationships.

On top of dealing with Beth’s latest diagnosis, the Chapmans were harassed on November 30 at the Denver Airport after her surgery. A father and his teenage son accused Duane of assaulting the boy.

The father and son opened a case against the reality star but video footage has revealed that their claim is false.
