Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman is coming clean about his bizarre onscreen proposal.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the reality star, 67, admitted he and Moon Angell are just friends, and he popped the question to her on The Dr. Oz Show because he’s very lonely and she reminds him of late wife Beth Chapman.
“I am very lonesome,” Duane said, adding that he became interested in Moon — Beth’s longtime assistant and close friend — because “she knew Beth.”
“And she talked about Beth constantly, ‘Remember what Beth used to tell us,’ and of course I would light right up when she’d say that. I was infatuated with a dream,” Duane explained.

The star swore on his “mama and on Beth” that his TV proposal was not scripted, and he knew that Moon’s answer would stop all the rumors about his love life.
Despite being mostly confident that she would deny him, Duane said that prior to asking Moon, 53, to marry him, he had a fear that she would say, “Yes.”
“When I said it, I think I was about ready to cry, but I knew that she would say no, and once she said no, that did it,” he explained. “And 98 percent of the rumors went away, the lies went away.”
Now, things are back to normal between the two. “She still works for me, and takes care of the finances,” Duane said, “I kind of embarrassed her a little bit and I shouldn’t have.”

Further explaining their relationship, Duane insisted they are not romantic — although if Moon wanted to be, he would gladly pursue her.
“Yes, I am going to be honest with you, brother. Yeah, I think I would have because it was more accessible,” he said when asked if he would have dated her.
