Criminals and low-rent low-lifes beware: The A&E Network plans to unleash the Dog once more on the streets of Honolulu.The network plans to resume filming episodes of “Dog the Bounty Hunter,” featuring Duane “Dog” Chapman, sometime in the next 10 days, Chapman’s family confirmed yesterday. A full 30 episodes are planned, but no air date has been set.
“The rumors are true,” said son Duane Lee Chapman. “He is very excited. Thank goodness for A&E. Thank goodness for a second chance. And thank goodness for the fans who have written to A&E over the last few months.”The network suspended the show Nov. 2 after learning that Chapman had used the N-word when referring to his son Tucker’s black girlfriend. Chapman apologized afterward, but his future as a reality show hero was uncertain.
A&E, however, said that since Chapman’s show is often about second chances, it would honor his apologies and resume filming.“He made a tragic mistake and I think he has really, really repented,” said his wife, Beth Chapman. “He feels really bad about it. I don’t think he will personally stop making amends until he feels OK
