LOS ANGELES (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – What happened to Baby Lyssa Chapman on Dog the Bounty Hunter, will Lyssa Chapman be joining the Dog the Bounty Hunter new show? Baby Lyssa Chapman vowed her support for the new show moments ago, LALATE can report.
Lyssa Chapman is not joining Dog and Beth, the new show debuting tonight on CMT. But she is certainly supporting it. She told followers moments ago “Congrats to my family on their continued success. Make sure you all tune in tonight to @cmt”. She shared the message with fellow family members, via Twitter accounts for Leland, Beth and Dog.
It remains unclear why Lyssa chose not to join the new show. But she is working on new projects. She released to news this week her book tour dates. Chapman, as previously reported on LALATE, is debuting a major new book in the coming days. Among her stops are St Louis on June 3 and Atlanta on June 6. She revealed eleven stops including the June 7 CMA Fest in Nashville Tennessee. This week she told news that she is filming a new project. “Last night with my business partner filming for Dis N Dat !”
But her biggest new project is her upcoming autobiography. Walking on Eggshells: Discovering Strength and Courage Amid Chaos heads to Amazon’s Kindle from publishing powerhouse Simon and Schuster Digital Sales Inc this May 2013.
Reality shows generally need some background explanation in their lead-in first episode. Many viewers felt that Dog and Beth didn’t provide that about Lyssa, Duane Lee and Tim this month. As evident on social media, fans were left guessing what happened to Baby Lyssa while watching Dog and Beth on CMT.
Viewers have been writing the same to Leland this weekend. “Leland so where is baby lyssa, and ur brothers…we are going to miss em. hope to see em on the show”. Viewers were displeased to learn that Lyssa was not joining the show. “I watched 2 hour special–not the same without Duane Lee & Baby Lyssa.”
Fans are excited for the new show. But they don’t like the absence of narrative background on the former cast members’ departure. “I can’t wait for your new show! What happened to Duane Lee and Baby Lyssa and Youngblood?”
Others wanted to know if Baby Lyssa, Tim, and Duane Lee still talk with Dog and Leland. “Do you talk to Duane Lee and Baby Lyssa still at least, since they’re not on the new show?” Another asked “What are baby Lyssa and Duane lee up to these days and do you miss working with them?” For now, fans are excited about tonight’s premiere. But there are saddened that the entire family is not back on screen. “I just miss seeing Duane Lee and Baby Lyssa but your as great as ever!”
