There are many Duck Dynasty secrets to be told. The Robertson family’s brand is built on an image of perfection and values. However, this family has a whole closet of skeletons, but they aren’t afraid to share them.
Duck Dynasty Secret
Fans are always eager to hear the newest Duck Dynasty secret. For many years now, the Robertson family has prided themselves on their honesty and openness about their dark pasts.
Sadie and Jessica Robertson are no exception. Both Duck Dynasty cast members have admitted to struggling with eating disorders. While the family often focuses on food and family meals, these two haven’t always had the healthiest relationship with food.
When Jessica and Jep Robertson decided to write their book, The Good, the Bad, and the Grace of God: What Honesty and Pain Taught Us About Faith, Family, and Forgiveness, they put it all out there. In particular, Jessica Robertson admitted to struggling with an eating disorder. She said, “I wouldn’t eat anything with fat in it. I would go as far as getting powdered skim milk because it had fat in it.” She added, “I think a lot of girls struggle with that.” One of those girls was actually her own niece.
Sadie Robertson’s Eating Disorder
In the past year, Sadie Robertson has opened up about her personal struggles. She told cameras that appearing on Dancing With The Stars triggered the illness. “I remember at that time on Instagram everybody’s like ‘goals, and thigh gap’, and all these different things.” She said, “When you’re not on DWTS and you’re not dancing 8 hours a day, you don’t look like that anymore… And you can’t really gain control of that, and so then you try everything you can to get back to that.”
Sadie acted similarly to her aunt, noting, “I didn’t even realize this small problem that I thought I had under control was creating a ripple effect, creating more and more problems, ones I certainly couldn’t control.”
Thankfully, both women have now shared their emotional Duck Dynasty secret and have relied on God for healing. They are both healthy and happy now, putting their self-worth in God’s hands and not the mirror’s.
