Duck Dynasty wouldn’t be much without Uncle Si. And Uncle Si always has his trusty partner with him — his blue plastic cup full of ice tea.
But what a lot of people don’t realize is that he has a life partner — his wife, Christine. And you better believe she’s way more important than Si’s unsweetened ice tea. They’ve been married for nearly 46 years, but she isn’t on the show and rarely makes public appearances.
For the first few seasons of Duck Dynasty, people wondered if Si was a loner or a widower. But later, Si cleared things up by explaining why his wife hasn’t appeared on the show.
“I always told people, ‘She’s got better sense than the rest of us,’ Si said. But that ain’t the real reason. Sometimes we film 12 hours a day, and she’s just not healthy enough to go through the rigors of that.”
But, Si says, Christine is perfectly fine with that. She’s not one for the spotlight…
Christine gets enough of Si at home.
“Ah, it ain’t no big deal,” Si said. “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.”
She may not want to watch the Robertsons on TV, but she did want to watch them onstage. Well, to be clear, she watched actors portraying the Robertsons on stage. She made a very public appearance at the opening of the Duck Commander musical, which premiered a couple of years ago.
