Duck Dynasty‘s Uncle Si Robertson is undoubtedly one of the most iconic and charismatic stars to ever emerge from the world of reality television. Fans of the show are all-too-familiar with his constant companion, a plastic blue cup of tea, but most are completely unfamiliar with his real-life constant companion: his wife of nearly 44 years, Christine Robertson.
Christine’s absence was a bit of a mystery for the first few seasons of the show, but Uncle Si later explained that Christine’s health was the main reason. “I always told people, ‘She’s got better sense than the rest of us.’ But that ain’t the real reason,” Si revealed in July. “Sometimes we film 12 hours a day, and she’s just not healthy enough to go through the rigors of that.”
Si later added, “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.”
Although she may not want to watch them on a TV show, Christine did apparently want towatch the Robertson family in a musical as she made a rare public appearance, along with husband Si and the rest of the Robertsons, for the grand opening of Duck Commander the Musical last night at the Las Vegas Rio Hotel and Casino! You can see Uncle Si and Aunt Christine in the photos above rockin’ the
red camo carpet, and here’s another picture:
