Duane Chapman was over the moon with his friend, Moon Angell. He even asked her to marry him on The Dr. Oz Show. Since she turned him down, he moved onto another lady. Duane is desperate to fill the void in his life after his wife, Beth Chapman, passed away.

His new girlfriend is named Francie Frane. The reality star known as Dog the Bounty Hunter is ready to marry her and have her move into the family home. He credits God for bringing them together. Although the couple just went public with their relationship on Wednesday, April 15, the couple has dated for a few months now.

New girlfriend says she can’t “replace” Beth Chapman

According to In Touch Weekly, Francie Frane took to Instagram to reveal how she couldn’t “replace” Duane Chapman’s late spouse. But the couple is very happy to have found one another.

“Thank you all so much for the encouraging comments,” Francie wrote. “Dog [and] I appreciate it so much. We know God brought us together and have no doubts about that AT ALL!”

Francie understands Duane’s pain. Her husband, Bob, passed away months prior to Beth Chapman’s passing. Bob died in June 2019 after a long battle with cancer. Like Duane, Francie feels that a higher power has brought them closer together.


“God has brought two people who walked a treacherous road together and shown us LOVE is possible again,” the 51-year-old wrote. “And as a wonderful, loving and kind as you all think Dog is HE IS [AND] MORE!! I LOVE YOU DUANE LEE.”

Francie shared a cozy photo with the 67-year-old reality star. She exclaimed that she’s looking forward to their journey together. She’s been making him happier than ever lately. Duane is so happy that he’s ready to take the next step in their relationship.

The Sun previously reported that the television personality professed his love for his new girlfriend on social media. But that doesn’t mean Beth is missing from his life. He posted a throwback video of himself with Beth and captioned it: “Sadly Missed.” In the clip, he’s seen kissing his late wife’s cheek. She also passed away after a long battle with cancer.


Beth and Duane wed in 2006, and have two children together, Bonnie, 22, and Garry, 19. Duane wants to marry his new girlfriend. In an interview with The Sun, he called Francie a “miracle” who entered in his life. While Duane also believes that there will “never be another Mrs Dog,” he wants Francie to be “the last Mrs Chapman.”

“It’s a God relationship because it’s like a miracle,” Duane said. “It’s a miracle how we met and it’s a miracle how great we’re getting along.”

Francie and Duane have been dating for a few months after the passing of her late husband. The couple has become close as they help each other through the grieving process. While Duane agrees with Francie that another woman will never replace Beth, he still believes in love.
