Beth Chapman of reality show Dog the Bounty Hunter has led a truly fascinating life. In fact, what her fans see on her reality TV shows isn’t even the half of it. For one thing, the star and her husband, “Dog,” have had many ups and downs, some of them decidedly controversial. But the TV personality has always come out fighting whatever difficulties she’s found herself engulfed in. However, in September 2017 the world was made aware of a cruel twist in Beth’s life story.
Beth Chapman’s life has seemingly been marked by tragedy. The day before she married Dog, her soon-to-be daughter-in-law Barbara was killed in a car accident. Nonetheless, Dog decided to go ahead with the wedding despite the loss of his child, and the reality TV cameras were on hand to document it.
But right from Dog the Bounty Hunter’s debut in 2004, it was a somewhat divisive program. The show began as a spin-off of Take This Job, which documented people with strange or difficult jobs. But as its success grew, the program became more and more controversial. And Dog’s own checkered past was one issue that was often brought up when the show was discussed.
