Like a lot of people, I was blindsided by the death of the always vivacious Beth Chapman. Wife and costar of Dog the Bounty Hunter. Real name Duane Chapman.
In the finale episode of his show “Dogs Most Wanted” he gets candid about the pain he went through following the return of her cancer in June 2019.
“I’ve only been alone as I showered and I had to run out without a towel because I can’t be alone right now. That’s when I start thinking about things. And I lay down to take a nap, and I reached over to touch something, and it was the freaking dog. I don’t realize yet psychologically that she’s gone and I’ll never, ever see her. I don’t realize that,” Chapman says.
“I just hope that I don’t live very much longer without her, because now she made the first step, she’s through the gate,” he explained.
“She paved a way for me. I want to take a g** d*** pain pill so bad. I feel like if I did something to myself right now and passed away suicidal and I got to heaven and was like, ‘Hi honey,’ and would she go, ‘You d*** a** why would you do that?’
