Si Robertson would rather be a homebody than on TV

The TV reality show, “Duck Dynasty,” has been on the air for six seasons. Almost all of their family members have made an appearance at one time or another, while other family members are regulars. However, one family member has never made an appearance on the popular TV show. That person is Christine, wife of Si Robertson.

In an interview with Us Weekly, Si finally reveals why Christine remains behind the cameras. "I always told people, 'She's got better sense than the rest of us.' 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, ah, it ain't no big deal. 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."

According to Us Weekly, when Si and Christine were dating, they loved to go out on the town, dancing. He admits that they were both party animals and that's probably what drew them together in the first place.

The Robertson’s have strong religious values that they share on the show of “Duck Dynasty” and everyplace they go. Faith is what got he and Christine through a tough time when they were first married. According to the doctors, Christine was unable to have kids, but she didn't let their words get her down. She knew that God had the final word on whether she would conceive or not, so she told Si not to worry about it. She believed in a higher power. And she was right. God blessed her with a son and a daughter. Then God blessed her some more when her children married and they gave them four grandsons a piece.

When Si signs T-shirts for the fans, he said that he puts his name along with John 3:16-17. He remarks that most people know John 16, which reads, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” However, few people know what verse 17 says, “For God did not send His Son to condemn the world but that through Him the world might be saved."

Si told Fox411 that verse is what got him through his 65 years of life. Even though Si likes being on the show, "Duck Dynasty," he would prefer to stay at home. "I'm a homebody. Christine's the same."

The Robertsons aren’t shy about their faith. Si's brother, Phil Robertson, came under fire when he spoke out about homosexuals. He said in an interview with GQ, "It seems like, to me, a vagina -- as a man -- would be more desirable than a man's anus. That's just me. I'm just thinking: There's more there! She's got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I'm saying? But hey, sin: It's not logical, my man. It's just not logical. Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men."

His comments or religious views got him removed from future episodes of “Duck Dynasty,” but only for a short time. Angry fans petitioned the station to have Phil reinstated on the show. A&E did as the fans demanded.
