‘Duck Dynasty’ wrapped it’s fifth season on Wednesday, March 26, but on Monday, March 31, the Robertson wives sat down for a brand new tell-all interview.
The Robertson family has endured its fair share of ups and downs over the past year, and now, they’re setting the record straight. How? By coming clean about their family secrets on national TV. Korie Robertson and the Duck Dynasty wives came together to speak up, and you’ve got to hear what they had to say. Keep reading to see what secrets they spilled about their famous family.
‘Duck Dynasty’ Women Tell All
Last week, Korie sat down with her husband, Willie Robertson, on CNN New Day, but this week, she’s joining forces with her fellow Duck Dynasty wives — Kay, Missy, Jessica and Lisa Robertson — in a series of revealing, new interviews. Fresh of the heels of the Season 5 finale, the Robertson women took flight to New York City to promote their new book, The Women of Duck Commander, which is full of “surprising insights from the women behind the beards about what makes this family work.”
Korie and the self-proclaimed “women behind the beards” explained to Good Morning America on March 31 that their husbands have become unlikely sex symbols, resulting from the fame of their family series, which (despite dropping ratings this past season) is the highest-rated reality show on cable TV.
“Last year a lady asked to take a picture with Jep, and during the picture he said she, like, grabbed his rear end,” said Jessica Robertson, the wife of Jep Robertson. Missy Robertson chimed in: “The women are after the men.”
But the women are sticking together through all of the Hollywood hustle bustle. “We’re no Real Housewives who argue all the time,” Korie told Us Weekly in their March 31 cover story. “We all work and vacation together; we’re all each other’s village.”
And that village has created quite an empire! Thanks to the Robertson’s books and other Duck merchandise, the family is worth a reported $400 million, according to Access Hollywood.
Kay Robertson’s Big Revelation — And The Truth On Her Husband, Phil Robertson
Buzzing about their husbands and their suddenly sexy beards was lighthearted, but the GMA interview did take a turn to serious discussion when Kay Robertson, wife of Phil Robertson was asked about her husband’s infamous comments to GQ last year, which put the family under fire. “You know as far as Phil with the gay thing, love everybody that is gay. But yes because he quoted the scripture that said that he would do it again because that’s just who he is,” said Kay. “He’s honest. He loves people. He really does.”
Kay also admitted that her and her husband would embrace a gay grandchild in their family, and then dropped a major bombshell: she was pregnant with son, Alan Robertson, before she and Phil were married.
“It is so easy for me to be honest now,” Kay said. “God loves me, my fans love me, my family loves me so I tell it all.”
Kay’s revelation was shocking, but another “duck diva” addressed family rumors, as well. Lisa Robertson spoke about being molested as a child, which led her to cheat on her husband, Alan, which caused their temporary separation.
