Despite her cancer battle, Beth Chapman is still fighting crime alongside her husband, Duane “Dog The Bounty Hunter” Chapman.
In a new, heartfelt interview, he is opening up about his wife’s battle against cancer.
He says that he wants to support her however he can — and that he’s not yet ready to let her go.
HollywoodLife sat down with Dog the Bounty Hunter for a very serious conversation about Beth Chapman’s cancer.
“The other day she said to me, ‘I’m not sure, but I could be dying,’” Chapman recalls, working to hold back tears.
He says that she takes comfort in continuing to do what she and her husband love: their work.
He says: “She said, ‘I want you to look where I’m at. I’m on the road, chasing bad guys with my family, Duane.'”
“You know,” Chapman confesses. “When we’re out there chasing bad guys we don’t think about it.”
“It’s not even real,” he characterizes.
But that doesn’t mean that Beth’s Stage IV throat cancer isn’t at the forefront of their thoughts.
“We just took off a couple days ago,” he notes. “To do a three-week shoot and the first thing I thought about was, ‘Oh my God, my honey’s got cancer!’”
“So I’ve got to keep her busy,” Chapman explains. “I’m sure that’s scriptural somewhere.”
As we have noted in the past, the Chapmans are taking a great deal of comfort in their Christian faith during this family ordeal.
“I’ve got to keep her busy,” Chapman says. “And off her mind and all the positive things and I’m not going to let her die.”
“I’m Chiricahua [a Native American tribe] and I believe in G-O-D,” he affirms.
Anyone who has watched Dog the Bounty Hunter is very well aware of how seriously he takes his religious beliefs.
“That,” he notes. “Is my name spelled backwards.”
“And,” Chapman confesses. “I’ve never had such a challenge in my life.”
“I am there for her,” he declares. “And I’m not going to let her die.”
He also says that Beth is no longer participating in “conventional treatment” for her Stage IV throat cancer.
“They don’t work,” Chapman accuses. “They don’t work! There’s nothing, they’ve got nothing.”
He then delves into something of a conspiracy theory regarding the hospital industry and the medical world at large.
“They’ve got a bill to send you,” he says. “It’s a multitrillion dollar industry, cancer, and they lie to you.”
“Watch,” Chapman predicts. “Some day they’re going to get sentenced. It’s criminal what they do.”
In the mean time, he praises his brave wife of 13 years for “feeling fine.”
“Listen,” Chapman notes as an example. “We filmed 16 hours straight the other day and caught the guy.”
“And I go, ‘Baby, baby, you feel okay?’” he narrates. “And Beth goes, ‘Yeah, and we better catch this guy!”
“I asked if she wanted to take a break and she responded, ‘Is the guy in custody yet?’”
“And I’m like, ‘Oh my God, she’s nuts!’” he characterizes.
“She’s always been a hard worker,” Chapman expresses.
In contrast, he says that he is not by nature especially proactive, admitting: “I’m a kicked back, easy guy.”
He describes how Beth encourages him: “She is like, ‘Get up, get ready, we got to go, this and that.’”
To her credit, he says that Beth’s serious illness has not changed her demeanor.
“Same exact woman right now,” Chapman praises. “Same exact everything.”
“I’ve always loved her,” Chapman notes.
“But,” Chapman admits. “I told her the other day, ‘Honey, I fell in love with you again. I love you more right now than I ever have,’”
“If you don’t really love the person, if you’re not really in love with them,” he says.
Well, he’s not wrong.
“And,” he continues. “You’re afraid to say that, you go, ‘Love you too.’”
“And as a human, you love them,” Chapman affirms.
“But when you say, ‘I’m in love with you,'” he offers for contrast. “See the difference?”
“We’ve been together almost 30 years,” Chapman reflects. “I don’t know anybody but her, really.”
The couple married in 2006, but had been together off an on since the 1980s.
Our hearts go out to the entire Chapman family at this time. Cancer sucks.
