The Robertson women of the hit "Duck Dynasty" reality show have revealed how their stardom has changed their lives, saying in a recent interview that their burly, big-bearded husbands are now considered to be unexpected sex symbols.
The women, including Korie, Missy, Miss Kay, Lisa, and Jessica, sat down with ABC's "Good Morning America" to reveal how their lives have changed since their A&E reality show first aired in 2012. The women's new book, titled The Women of Duck Commander: Surprising Insights from the Women Behind the Beards About What Makes This Family Work, releases April 1.
"Last year a lady asked to take a picture with Jep, and during the picture he said she, like, grabbed his rear end," Jessica Robertson, wife to Jep Robertson, told "Good Morning America" correspondent Bianna Golodryga. Missy, wife to Jase Robertson, jokingly added, "The women are after the men."
The Robertson family has gained wide attention and success following the premiere of its reality show that follows the family and their Duck Commander duck call business in Louisiana. In addition to releasing multiple books, several Robertson family members have also released other Duck Dynasty merchandise, including hunting gear, cookbooks, and clothing. Jessica Robertson is currently collaborating with her husband to produce a new clothing line, while Korie Robertson recently worked with her mom to release faith-based learning curriculums for churches nationwide.
Although the Robertsons are now an American household name, the evangelical family has maintained its humility in the face of success. Korie Robertson told Us Weekly in a recent interview that the Robertson women get along very well when the cameras aren't rolling. "We're no Real Housewives who argue all the time," Korie said. "We all work and vacation together; we're all each other's village."
Jase Robertson also told People in a recent interview that he sees the family reality show as a "healthy distraction" for those who may be struggling with low points in their lives, adding, "that's what we want to be."
