On Sept. 3, Si Robertson, America’s most famous uncle, appeared on “Good Morning America” to take viewers on a behind-the-scenes tour of the “Duck Dynasty” empire in Louisiana. During his interview on Tuesday morning, Uncle Si chatted about his new book and his beloved wife of 43 years, who is never seen on camera.
Si invited “GMA” down to Monroe for an exclusive tour of the Duck Commander headquarters. The conference room featured a big table, a bigger TV and a row of worn-out recliners. Jace Robertson was interviewed and joked about his famous uncle, “The main two things Si does is he naps and goes to the bathroom.”
Si explained that being a celebrity is not all that it’s cracked up to be. “I’m really a shy person,” he stated on “GMA.” Concerning the huge success of “Duck Dynasty,” Robertson joked, “Has God got a sense of humor or what? We’re now TV stars!” The show is a ratings slam-dunk for A&E. According to the “Huffington Post,” it beat out the season premieres and finales of “Mad Men,” “Downton Abbey,” “Happy Endings,” “Breaking Bad,” “Sharknado,” “Glee,” “The Good Wife,” “Homeland,” and “The Office."
Uncle Si’s new book titled “Si-cology 101: Tales and Wisdom from Duck Dynasty’s Favorite Uncle” hit store shelves on Sept. 3. Between the covers, Si talks a lot about his beloved wife and said on Tuesday, “If you read this, you’ll find out that one woman has already got my heart.” He added that he asked his wife Christina to marry him at least 75 times until she finally accepted his proposal.
Si’s new book includes a collection of tall tales, crazy exploits and quirky one-liners. He also weaves in an up-close look into his personal life. Readers will learn about his childhood life as the youngest son in the Robertson family, his college days, and his time in “Nam.” He also openly talks about his wife Christina and two children, Scott and Trasa – who are never seen and rarely mentioned on the show. Faith is also a huge part of Si’s new book. He recently told the “Washington Post,” “Christianity is why the ‘Duck Dynasty’ family is still together.”
A&E is currently airing the fourth season of “Duck Dynasty.” The season premiere drew in 11.8 million viewers, the most-watched non-fiction cable telecast in history. Plus, the 30-minute show is one of the most-watched reality shows in TV history. New episodes air at 10 p.m. EST (9 PST) on Wednesday nights on A&E.
