Beth Chapman, wife of Duane “Dog” Chapman died in August of 2019. There’s been a ton of family strife since her death, as Duane has refused to discuss dating–has lied about dating–and his two daughter’s are not too keen on idea of their father taking another wife so soon.
But it seems he’s gonna do what he wants, regardless.
On an upcoming episode of Dr. Oz, “Dog” Chapman is seen turning to girlfriend, Moon Angell, and asking her to marry him.
“Moon Angell, will you marry me?”
It’s probably best to note that Moon Angell was his wife Beth’s assistant on the show. So like, I get why his kids are weary. It brings up the question of how long were Angell and Chapman seeing one another while Beth was dying?
One daughter, “Baby” Lyssa Chapman, took to Twitter in a few tweets, expressing her rage at this news.
I will not tweet. I willl not tweet I will not tweet. I will not tweet.

Dog’s relationship with Angell has been fraught from the start. Cecily, his other daughter, took to Twitter earlier in January:
I’ve been very quiet concerning the circumstances but tbh what kinda ‘friend’ moves into a dead friend’s house with their husband. #narcissist.
Lyssa has been more direct than Cecily. Lyssa’s written about the fact Angell moved all of her step-mother’s clothes from her closet and replaced them with hers, and has called Angell a “disgusting” woman.
However, I’m not sure his children are asking the right questions when it comes to Dog’s happiness. They’re so focused that he made a ‘promise’ to his wife, Beth, never to marry again that they may not have thought about the fact that promise was made under the duress of her being sick and dying.
You’d say anything to someone you loved who was sick and dying, right?
People who are treated terribly by peers, coworkers and family. Lift each other up. You never know what people are dealing with. Don’t be the reason to tear them down. #BellLetsTalk

I will say, Dog denied dating Angell, even telling Radar Online earlier in January that:
She has been so good to me. I’ll get really emotional and find myself getting into a dark hole and she will tell me to suck it up. It’s been good having her by my side.
So perhaps the children are right to be worried–if Dog has been depending on Angell a lot, he might think he cares for her but he’s really grieving in some way. Who knows? Only Dog and Angell really know what’s up, and nobody can really stop them or change their minds.
As long as they’re adults, and are found to be sane and able to consent, nothing can be done. So maybe… the children should be more supportive?
