On October 31st, A&E yankedthe top-ranked reality series (and all repeats) from its lineup after the National Enquirer’s website published atelephone conversation between Chapman and his son, Tucker. On the tape, which Tucker had turned over to the Enquirer for a rumored $15,000, Chapman usedracialslurs when discussing Tucker’s new African-American girlfriend.
Immediately after the incident, Chapman began apologizing, telling his fans that he was wrong and ashamed and would do whatever it took to repair the damage he’d done.
“I am deeply disappointed in myself for speaking out of anger to my son and using such a hateful term in a private phone conversation,” he said. “I was disappointed in his choice of a friend, not due to her race, but her character. However, I should have never used that term.”
No word yet on when Dog will be back on schedule, but filming has reportedly begun and A&E officials have confirmed that the show will be returning. Stay tuned to Reality TV Magazine for scheduling information as it comes available.
