After graduating from high school, Beth worked several different jobs. She has worked as a nightclub singer, an ice skater, a waitress, a clerk, and also a gymnast.
She Was the Youngest Licensed Bail Bondsman
At the age of 29, Beth became a licensed bail bondsman. In fact, she was the youngest in Colorado to get the title! However, her record has been broken by her step-daughter, Lyssa Chapman, as she became a licensed bounty hunter at 19.

Beth Chapman Is Married to Duane Chapman
When Beth was 17 years old and in high school, she became a teen mom after the birth of her baby boy, whom she named Dominic Smith. He was born in 1985.
Beth was previously married to Keith A. Barmore. They got married on August 26, 1991, and have one daughter together, Cecily Barmore Chapman, who was born in 1993.
Nobody knows when the couple got divorced.
But she is most known for being Dog the Bounty Hunter’s wife. Beth Chapman is currently married to Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman.
She met Duane in the late ‘80s under funny circumstances – she was caught shoplifting lemons and he was her bail bondsman!
Her bondsman-turned-boyfriend ended up being her partner in life and work, and eventually the two married and had children. She is Duane’s fifth wife.
In 1999, they welcomed a daughter named Bonnie Jo (Joanne) Chapman and in 2000, the pair had a son, who they named Garry. Beth Chapman married Duane Chapman on May 20, 2006. The couple is still going strong, 12 years and counting.
And now, the two are actually grandparents! In fact, Beth and Duane received physical custody of his grandson Travis Chapman in 2011.
According to reports from back then, Duane alleged that his grandson was being abused by his biological father. The Chapman’s were awarded temporary custody of the then nine-year-old boy.
Beth’s daughter Bonnie Chapman was born on December 17, 1999, which makes her age 19. She was born in Denver, Colorado and completed her education from Sacred Hearts Academy.
As for her son? Garry Chapman was born on February 1, 2001, which makes him 17 years old. He was born in Hawaii.
Beth is the stepmother to Nicholas Chapman, Duane Lee Chapman Jr., Leland Chapman, James Chapman, Wesley Chapman, Lyssa Chapman, Christopher Hecht, Tucker Chapman, and Barbara-Katie “B.K.” Chapman.
Beth Chapman’s Weight Loss
Beth Chapman’s weight loss success story is quite amazing. She has lost a whopping 50 pounds and has reduced her breasts to 42 inches, her waist to 24 inches, her hips to 32 inches, and is confident about her transformed personality.
While rumor has it that her weight loss is a result of tummy-tuck surgery, she slammed that rumor and credited it to a change in her lifestyle.
She exchanged watching TV with playing sports, she changed her diet from cheeseburgers to healthy cereals, cabbage, and lettuce, and in an effort to get rid of toxins, she went on a high-water diet. Well, it certainly seemed to work!
She Was Diagnosed with Cancer
In September 2017, Chapman was diagnosed with throat cancer. In a letter, she said, “After months of a nagging cough, a routine checkup resulted in a diagnosis of stage II throat cancer.
I have what is referred to as a T2 Tumor in my throat that is blocking my breathing. My doctors are suggesting immediate treatment and surgery before the disease progresses.”
Chapman reportedly underwent a grueling 13-hour surgery, where a “plum-sized tumor from her neck” was removed. The doctors at Cedars-Sinai Hospital were successful in the operation, which put a positive spin on the Chapmans’ outlook.
However, the seven-inch scar left an impact on Beth, though Dog was very supportive every step of the way.
But she seems to be doing much better! Recently, Beth showed off her scars from her cancer removal surgery on social media. Now that she is cancer free, she is enjoying her good health. However, she has revealed that she is taking her time to come to terms with the surgery scars.
Regardless, she has come out a greater fighter than she ever has in
