July 10, 2019 (Castle Rock, CO) – ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT’s Kevin Frazier sat down with Duane “Dog” Chapman at his Colorado home for an intimate first interview about life after the death of his beloved wife Beth who died on June 26 at the age of 51 after a battle with cancer.
"[With any] new experience that you have, you don't know how you're doing because you've never experienced it," Duane said with a long pause. "I have a lot of people who depend on me. All my supervisors said, 'Dog, it's time to man up.' So I'm trying to man up."
While it's been an emotional time for him and his family, Duane explained how Beth had tried to prepare him for the moment when she would no longer be by his side.
"For two to three years, she knew this might happen. So she would say, 'Who is going to sit next to you?' And I said, 'No one,'" he tearfully recalled. "'Big Daddy, you better not let another girl take my place.' I said, 'I won't.'"
In her final moments, however, Duane told his wife that he was "not going to let her die." "The last few moments she said, 'Come in here right now, in the bathroom,'" he recalled. "I went in and she said, 'Look at me.' And I said, 'Yeah, you're freaking beautiful baby.' [And she said,] 'Look at me, Duane Chapman.' And I did, I always saw Beth and she said, 'Please, let me go.'"
