Beth Chapman's cancer has returned.

And the Doug The Bounty Hunter star told the latest issue of InTouch Weekly that she will fight 'every step of the way' to get better even though her cancer has been called 'incurable' as it has spread to her lungs.

'I have to keep faith, I am the leader of the family,'  her husband Duane Chapman, 65, told the publication. 'She thinks she is, but I am. I have to keep it where I don't have any doubts and keep everything positive. I love my honey so much, I don't know what I'm gonna do.'

He also detailed what happened.   'Half of her lung was full of water,' he added. Five ounces of fluid was drained from her lung after she was rushed to a hospital in LA last week.

Last week he said she was 'not doing good' after her throat cancer returned.

The 65-year-old TV star made the comments when leaving Mr Chow in Beverly Hills on Wednesday evening where Quentin Tarantino held the after party for his wedding to Israeli singer Daniella Pick, 35. 

Dog looked downcast and he also asked fans to 'pray' for his spouse.

We're all so devastated, we love our mommy so much. We got such an amazing outpour from our fans and we really appreciate it. Poor daddy.'

Dog stepped in, 'Listen we love you guys too bro, aloha, say a prayer.'

He then hugged two friends goodbye. It seemed as if he was not attending Quentin's after party but had rather dined with two pals and his daughter at Mr Chow.
