Doesn't want to be on TV anyway

Si Robertson revealed the real reason his wife does not appear on Duck Dynasty is because of her health. However, she would rather not appear on TV anyway.

While the famous reality show is a big part of Robertson's life, there are still a few members of the family who do not want to appear on television. One of those is his wife, Christine Robertson, who is just not up to taking part in filming the hit reality series.

For the first time, Robertson revealed the actual reason Christine is not on the show, and that is because she has health issues that prevent her from the long hours of shooting Duck Dynasty requires.

"Sometimes we film 12 hours a day," Robertson said. "And she's just not healthy enough to go through the rigors of that."

Before now, when Robertson was asked why his wife was not seen by his side on the show, he "always told people, 'She's got better sense than the rest of us.'" But, while he finally came clean as to why Christine is absent form the popular series, he admitted that she is not bothered by it at all.

"It ain't no big deal. She wants no part of it anyway," Robertson went on. "She's been married to me for 43 years. The last thing she needs is to watch us on a TV show."

The tea-drinking duck call maker said he's not always happy to be the center of attention, either. "Celebrity life is not all it's cracked up to be," he said.

"If I had a choice to go somewhere or stay home, I'd stay home," Robertson said. "Im a homebody. Christine's the same."

Apparently, the close-knit couple is OK with hanging out at home since they got all their partying out of the way when they were young.

"Both of us was party animals, I guess you'd call us," Robertson said, adding that their outgoing personalities are what attracted them to each other. "We enjoyed going out and dancing, we had a good time when we were dating."
