Dog The Bounty Hunter is a married man again…and tied the knot with his new wife, Francie Frane, while dealing with a bit of family drama.
Duane ‘The Dog’ Chapman walked down the aisle on Thursday in Colorado Springs at an estate called The Pinery At The Hill. Photographers flooded the area and snapped the reality star stealing a kiss from his new wife while enjoying the reception. Of course, at one point, Dog was spotted outside smoking a cigarette and drinking a glass of wine while the other partied in the venue.
As we reported, the couple has been preparing for the big day including Dog joking about how he didn’t expect the venue to be as expensive as it was when they booked it. The reality star seemed relaxed on his big day, and even posed with a fan outside of the venue before the party started.
Unfortunately, Dog’s daughter was nowhere to be found — and it appears the reality star is still dealing with the family drama.
Chapman broke his silence on the situation, sitting down with Entertainment Tonight, trying to explain what drove such a big wedge between him and his daughter. It all started after Dog was dropped by a production company for his new television show after they claimed he used racist and homophobic words — including the n-word.
In the interview, Dog claims he was given a “pass” to use the n-word by a group of “brothers” he did prison time with back in the 1970s. The reality star attempted to explain the situation, claiming leaked phone messages included him saying the word. I have never been a racist,” he said. Adding, “I’m 33.5 percent Apache. But because of over 15 years ago, I have an Achilles’ heel because I used the wrong word.”
Duane attempted to use Eminem as an example in the argument, claiming he was similar to him by getting a pass.
“I thought I had a pass in the black tribe to use it, kind of like Eminem,” he explained. As we reported, the ET host pressed Chapman about who exactly gave him the authority to use the racial slur, and Dog simply said the “brothers.”
“I had just gotten out of prison in 1979 after spending time, 18 months in Texas, and it was probably three-fourths from the black tribe, so that was a word that we used back and forth, as maybe a compliment,” Dog said. Adding, “My pass expired for using it, but no one told me that.”
In the end, Dog explained that he didn’t believe just saying a racist word, actually made you a racist. During the interview, Dog tried to point out that he has many black friends and would “lay down his life” for a fellow man. The problem is, as pointed out by the host, proximity to someone or others doesn’t mean you are not a racist.
