NAPLES, FLORIDA: Francie Frane's fans rushed to her support after she was called out for trying to look like her husband Duane 'Dog' Chapman's late wife Beth in a social media post. In the mirror selfie shared on her Instagram, Frane gave a glimpse of her workout session with the bounty hunter on Tuesday, April 11. The couple's selfie soon sparked fan criticism after a user pointed out that the 52-year-old rancher is trying to resemble Chapman's late wife.
