A Scandalous Relationship

Fans have been speculating wildly over the state of Duane "Dog" Chapman's relationship with longtime family friend, Moon Angell. Since his wife Beth's death, Angell has been a companion with him through his grief. He told Radar Online:

"Moon has been a trustworthy and loyal friend to me for over 20 years. She has been with my family through many ups and downs. All my children are grown and gone on their own, there’s no one left to help me!

Moon is experienced. It’s just that. Who knows what my future holds, but right now I need her. There will never be another Mrs. Dog but that doesn’t mean I have to be so sad."

There has been a lot of discussion as to whether or not this relationship is romantic or not, but it is clearly taking its toll on his family.

His Daughters Are Not Fans

His daughters are decidedly NOT on board, with Lyssa Chapman tweeting her disapproval constantly. She wrote:

"You’re disgusting woman. Any person who moves in on a man weeks after losing his wife, who you were supposed to be a “friend “ to, Is the lowest scum on the planet-Which for you wasn’t that far of a step down from where you were before. God will get you MARY !!!

"Let’s not forget my BROTHER PICKED YOU UP IN A BAR ! 🥂"

Dog has not denied that his relationship with Angell is romantic until they stopped by The Dr. Oz Show to set the record straight.

Clearing Up The Rumors

Although the promotional clip had been edited to look like Chapman was proposing in earnest to Angell, it turned out to be nothing of the sort, and was actually a tactic to prove that they were nothing more than friends.

"I think this will put a stop to a lot of this," he said. "Moon Angell will you marry me?"

Looking at him in shock, Angell replied, "What? No. We’re friends, Duane. I love you as a friend."

I know, but I want everyone else to know," he said.

Angell continued, explaining that while they are close, it is not a romantic relationship.

"I think he’s an amazing human being, but I’ve known him before he was famous. To me, he will always be my best friend. I don’t see myself thinking past that... Beth was my best friend, Duane is my best friend. I’m not crossing that line."

Helping Him Heal

Dog admitted to Dr. Oz that he has contemplated suicide since Beth's death.

"Well, I couldn’t stop crying. I’m Apache, I wasn’t going to commit suicide with a gun or something. I was going to take a lot of pills because she left — Beth left all her big pills there. So I thought, I just need one drink a water."

He explained on the show that Angell was the one who helped him through the emotional low points, and she said:

"I say ‘brutally honest. I don’t go in and out. It’s one way. And this is the way we’re going to do it. He needs to get going. We need to get back on the show and get him busy again."

So, there you have it: He's sticking to his plan to never marry again. So far.
