‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’ Beth Chapman Plans Her Funeral After ‘Incurable’ Prognosis

Dog the Bounty Hunter doesn’t want his wife Beth Chapman to talk about it, but she’s a realist. Beth’s cancer has spread and it’s “incurable,” according to the latest interview from Dog, whose real name is Duane Chapman.

While the prognosis is grim, Duane Chapman is not giving up. In his prayers, he promises anything for God to heal his “honey.” Once Dog and Beth were given the horrific news, she started pointing out to Dog what she wanted for her funeral.

Dog the Bounty Hunter – Beth Chapman Cancer ‘Incurable’

While this made the famous bounty hunter totally uncomfortable, his wife told him he has to face facts. Dog shared just how brave Beth Chapman is while making arrangements for things to come. In his latest interview Dog the Bounty Hunter said:

“She’s like, ‘Here’s the casket I want, and here are the flowers.’ I said, ‘Beth, don’t say that.’ And she said, ‘What? You don’t want me planning my funeral? Well, I’m going to,’” the reality star said. “And she’ll say, ‘You have to face the facts.’ But I don’t want to.”

Duane Chapman Shares How Beth is a Realist

Not only is Beth Chapman being realistic about her funeral, but she is also worried about Duane Chapman when she’s no longer on this earth. Dog the Bounty Hunter and Beth are a very tight couple. During his interview with Us Magazine, Dog told a story about about her that happened recently one night. He said:

“She woke me 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, ‘Don’t you dare say that,’ and she said, ‘Well, it’s true!’ and I said, ‘Beth, we don’t even have a farm,’” he recalls. “[I’m] telling you that story because it shows that she’s still got her wit. It’s not in her brain. I don’t even like to hear jokes like that from her, though.”

Beth and Dog Share Prognosis with Fans

Beth Chapman, 51, was first diagnosed with throat cancer back in September of 2017. After undergoing treatment the couple announced Beth was cancer-free in November that same year. These two Dog the Bounty Hunter stars were very open with their fans regarding her journey.

A few weeks ago on November 27, Beth had emergency surgery to remove a mass from her throat. It was during that surgery that they discovered her cancer had not only returned but spread as well. Beth’s cancer is “incurable” as it’s spread to her throat and lungs.

Positive Thinking for Dog the Bounty Hunter

Dog the Bounty Hunter is practicing a lot of positive thinking these days as well as turning to his faith. He said he won’t listen to the bad news, he doesn’t want to hear it. Dog wants to focus on being positive while they travel this journey.
