Dog The Bounty just received a huge approval for the relationship with his new girlfriend, BOTH his daughters Lyssa and Bonnie, say they are happy for him!!
This is a gigantic move forward for Duane Chapman, who caught a ton of heat for his last relationship with the family’s longtime assistant Moon Angel.
Dog’s daughter, Baby Lyssa, shared a photo of Duane and girlfriend Francie Frane on her Instagram with the caption, “How cute are these two ?! ❤️”
As we reported Dog has been dating Francie for several weeks, and the couple finally are going public.
As for Francie, she lives in Colorado near Dog’s home and hooked up with Duane after he called her husband for some landscaping work on the family property. Unfortunately, her husband passed away, and the two leaned on each other for support after both losing their spouses.
Dog’s new GF, Francie, went public with the couple’s new relationship on Instagram — after she posted a couple of the two of them together with the caption, “So excited for this new chapter! ❤️
Not only does Baby Lyssa approve, but so does Dog’s other daughter, Bonnie Jo Chapman, who made a statement about how no one should be judging her father for his new relationship.
“Everyone who’s judging my father should sure pray that they never have to lose their loved one and get judged for trying to fill the void. Your opinion is invalid. My mother would’ve wanted him to be happy. Now please shut up and let my dad live in peace,” Bonnie posted.
As you know, this is a HUGE change of heart for Baby Lyssa who was not happy with Dog’s prior relationship with Moon Angel.
As we reported, Lyssa went OFF on Twitter saying “If someone who met your family by dating your brother, tried to date your father after your stepmom died what would you do? If you went to your mothers closet and saw she moved all her clothes and replaced them with her own, what would you do? #ItsNotWhenOrWhyItsWho,” she wrote in now-deleted tweets.
She continued, “You’re a 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.”
As you know, Dog asked Moon to be his wife on the Dr. Oz show, but later said he was only doing it to get everyone off of his back.
But, it’s a whole different story with Francie. In a new interview with The Sun, Lyssa said, “Francie has been very respectful to all the kids – and to Beth’s memory – and my dad is the same way with Bob and their children.”
“They go to church three times a week and dad is trying to give up smoking — she is a good woman for my dad. He’s the happiest I’ve seen him in a long time – he’s so in love and wants to spend the rest of his life with Francie,” Lisa told The Sun.
We broke the story, Dog and Lyssa reunited in Hawaii after being estranged for some time. The two spent time together in a rehab facility where Dog had a speaking engagement.
This sounds like a new family reality show could be in the making!
