Ever find yourself watching Duck Dynasty and thinking, “What this show really needs is more women”? Well, there’s one Robertson female you can expect to never heed the call of reality TV: Uncle Si’s wife, Christine.


Si revealed the reason why his wife’s unlikely to ever appear on the family’s A&E show in the new Duck Dynasty collector’s issue of Us Weekly (yep, that’s a real thing). The 66-year-old, who’s been married to Christine for more than four decades, tells the magazine the reason he typically gives curious folks “She’s got better sense than the rest of us” isn’t the whole story.

“Sometimes we film 12 hours a day, and she’s just not healthy enough to go through the rigors of that,” he explains. “But, ah, it ain’t no big deal. She wants no part of it anyway. She’s been married to me for 43 years. The last thing she needs is to watch us on a TV show.”

Not that Uncle’s all too thrilled about his newfound fame all the time either. Telling Us, “Celebrity life is not all it’s cracked up to be! If I had a choice to go somewhere or stay home, I’d stay home. I’m a homebody. Christine’s the same.”

Perfect! You two can stay in and catch up on your Duck Dynasty!
