Duck Dynasty is a reality television series on the A&E network that follows the lives of the Robertson family, who owns a business that deals in all things relating to duck hunting, called Duck Commander. The Louisiana family members are famous for their conservative Christian views and very long beards. The show follows Phil and Kay Robertson, the heads of the family, as well as Phil’s brother, Si, and Phil’s four sons, Alan, Jase, Willie, and Jep. The whole thing started through Phil’s YouTube series that showed, in a very graphic way, how he hunts and kills ducks. These expeditions of his quickly gained him a following of fans who loved his straight-shooting (pun intended) attitude, and with Duck Dynasty the TV show, they wishes for more Robertson charm were answered.
The motto of the show is, “Money, family, ducks,” which is very appropriate considering the family makes a lot of money from their duck hunting products business, as well as their hugely successful show. That said, family is what it’s truly all about for them, while ducks comprise the basis for all they’re worth; without ducks they wouldn’t be where they are today. The show is very controversial as Phil always has something to say about religion and social freedom. The super conservative Christian wasn’t always such a steadfast believer, though, as his deep Christian faith came to him after a very rough time in his 20s, when even his beloved Kay wasn’t sure she as going to stay with him. Luckily for all of us, Phil got his act together in time to keep Kay by his side (ever since the two were teenagers!) and lead their sons and business.
The show provides millions of Americans with comic relief as well as a window into the lives of a hunting family with a wild dynamic, including some not-so-appropriate words from the male heads of the Robertson family. There are also, however, deep secrets that seldom know about them, and we made sure to uncover those facts for your viewing pleasure.
Until now, following Duck Dynasty has certainly been one heck of a ride, and it got us obsessed with the entire Robertson clan. So what HAVE they been keeping from their fans? It almost seems like this family doesn’t believe in secrets, but as it turns out, they have their fair share of confidential details that they may not want the world to know…

Before the world knew of Phil Robertson, he led a life that was filled with debauchery and inebriation. Things got so bad once that he threw his children and his wife out of their communal trailer. This was the turning point for his wife, Kay, who relied on her Christian faith and prayed for Phil to understand the dangers of his ways. Phil would later turn to religion as well, allegedly claiming that it saved their marriage and relationship.
