"I couldn't stop crying," he says. "I wasn't going to commit suicide with a gun or something. I was going to take a lot of pills because she left, Beth left all her big pills there. So I thought I just need one drink of water." 

He eventually called the “brutally honest” Moon and she helped to talk him out of the horrible act.

"I don't go in and out. It's one way," Duane's girlfriend chimed in. "This is the way we're going to do it. He needs to get going. We need to get back on the show and get him busy again." 

When asked about their intimacy, Moon explained their bond “has to be intimate because there's a lot of powerful things going on with Dog."

Duane’s wife Beth passed away on June 26, 2019 after losing her battle to cancer. Following her death, he revealed he was ready to date, but if Moon is a potential mate, he might not have his daughter’s approval. readers know Lyssa Chapman posted a series of tweets that seem to subliminally target Moon.

“If someone who met your family by dating your brother, tried to date your father after your step- mom died what would you do ? If you went to your mothers closet and saw she moved all her clothes and replaced them with her own, what would you do ? #ItsNotWhenOrWhyItsWho,” she, 32, wrote. “Any person who moves in on a man weeks after losing his wife, who you were supposed to be a ‘friend’ to, Is the lowest scum on the planet-Which for you wasn’t that far of a step down from where you were before. God will get you MARY!!!”

“Happiness is granted to all, and all I wish is happiness for my family,” Lyssa continued. “When a person who has ill intentions, that my mother specifically warned me about before her passing tries to enter, the war is on. The devil ALWAYS goes for the weakest link. Not today satan.”

Additionally, insiders close to the family told that Duane’s loved ones are skeptical of Moon’s intentions and claim she was “always scheming to get with Dog and the moment Beth died, she started to worm her way in on him.”
