During a press conference on Tuesday, Dr. Oz discussed future episodes and upcoming segments to be aired on season five of “The Dr. Oz Show”. While answering a question involving sex and back pain, Dr. Oz revealed the past addiction that plagued the Duck Commander from A&E’s “Duck Dynasty”.
The three-time Emmy Award-winning critically acclaimed and nationally syndicated “The Dr. Oz Show” will begin its fifth season Monday, September 9. Dr. Oz disclosed future episodes that include celebrity interviews with guests such as Steven Tyler, Cheryl Burke and the cast of “Duck Dynasty”.
While interviewing the Robertson family, America’s self-proclaimed healthiest clan, and talking about "quack medicine", the Duck Commander surprised Dr. Oz with his candid admission.
As Dr. Oz answered a sex and back pain query, he divulged the “Duck Dynasty” secret.
Dr. Oz: We’re having the Duck Dynasty guys on. And the Duck Commander surprised me with something, which you’ll see on the show, that I never would’ve expected from him. In that show, which we called kiddingly, ‘Quack Medicine’, because the Duck Commander has built his career on that, we talk about some of the things they do to stay healthy, which again, very soulfully allows an audience to respect the fact that their family take care of each other and care about each other. They can take us in a direction, and we can have a good time going there, while we talk about the fact that they’re actually remarkably healthy.
And at the same time, completely unprepared and unexpectedly to me, the Duck Commander opened up about his history when he was younger about addiction. And that cycle, that wave of emotion up and down through the show, was you’re having a great time, but also having soulful moments, is what we want to build the show on this year.
The premiere episode of “The Dr. Oz Show” is scheduled for Monday, September 9. The date for the segment that includes the Robertson family has yet to be released. New episodes of “Duck Dynasty” air on A&E Wednesday evenings.
