The Lives of the Robertson Women Are Finally Shared!
For the past five seasons, the Robertson women have been a beautiful addition to the hit A&E program Duck Dynasty. Until now, much of what we know about the five of them comes from what we see on television, what has been mentioned in previous books, what they Tweet, and the occasional interview.
This spring, a brand new book has the five Duck Commander wives-Miss Kay, Korie, Missy, Jessica and Lisa-sharing their own behind the scenes stories in a book all of their own entitled The Women of Duck Commander: Surprising Insights from the Women Behind the Beards About What Makes This Family Work.
Who are these five women and why do fans want to learn more about them?
Miss Kay-The Family Matriarch
Kay Robertson married Phil when she wassixteen years old and Phil was eighteen. The first ten years of their marriage were rough-Phil drank, ran off with other women, and had a vile temper. In fact, he threw Kay and their three sons (Jep was not born yet) out of their home. It was only when he found G-d and repented for his sins did she take him back. This is the Phil that we see today and have read about in several books.
But until now, Miss Kay has only told bits and pieces of the story. The one book she has published, her cookbook, was a bestseller, but told lighthearted stories of her family. In this new book, she will share more intimate details of her early marriage years to Phil and what it was really took for her to forgive him and have the happy union we see on television.
One interesting fact that she reveals is that she was pregnant with Alan, their oldest son,when they got married. Until now, that fact was hidden under the rug.

Pastor Alan's Wife
Lisa has been married for over 29 years to the first born son of Phil and Kay, Alan. Alan had to grow up quickly when his father threw him and his mom and brothers out of the house. While Kay was working, he had to babysit his younger brothers so food could be put on the table. Eventually, he would have troubles of his own with drugs, but he changed his ways and became a pastor at the White Ferry Church.
Lisa and Alan have been married for over 29 years and have two daughters and two granddaughters and a new grandson born in March.
One of the truths revealed in Lisa’s story is how she had a 14 month affair sometime during the 1990’s while married to her pastor husband. The two reconciled after a brief separation, and Lisa now devotes herself daily to showing Alan that she is a new person. Renewing their wedding vows and wearing brand new rings was one step they took to bring a new closeness to their post-affair lives.
She also reveals that she was sexually abused from the age of seven until she was a teenager by a member of her extended family. This shaped how she viewed men and how they viewed her in her mind.
Korie met Willie Credit: www.amazon.comat a Christian summer camp when they were in the third grade. Although she came from a much more monetarily comfortable family, Korie’s family and the Robertsons did share one important thing-their Christian faith. Against her parents judgement, she and Willie married right after high school graduation and together have raised five children. Life was not always easy raising five children and creating a million dollar business, but they have grown up together and have weathered life's many storms.
She and daughter, Rebecca, are opening a new business in their hometown of Monore, Louisiana. Called “Duck & Dressing”, it features hip edgy kinds of apparel and home décor. These are certainly not the kind of clothes Miss Kay wears!

Missy is married to Jase Robertson and together they have three children-Cole, Reed and Mia. Mia was born with a cleft palate, and in the book, Missy shares how both she and Jase have had to deal with her multiple surgeries, the most recent being this past January.
Jase and she have shared that they were virgins on their wedding night when they married at ages 19 and 20 twenty-three years ago. She openly admits that she prefers her man to be beardless, and would love to see him cleans haven again.
Fans were surprised on one Duck Dynasty episode when Missy started to sing Silent Night...and she could really sing! When the Robertson's put out their Duck the Halls Christmas album, it was Missy's sweet, beautiful voice that outshone the others.
Fame has not changed who they are and she is presently launching her own line of women’s clothing from Southern Fashion House. The line caters to the busy woman who wants both style and comfort at an affordable price.

They Share Their Values and How They Raise Their Children
While it wasn’t love at first sight for Jessica and Jeptha (Jep), once they started dating, it took only four months for them to tie the knot and make it official. Twelve years later, they have four young children and are still madly in love. You can tell in the Duck Dynasty show that Jep takes more care of his beard, as his brothers and co-workers tease him about how he uses products in his beard (his beard is the nicest one of all and well-kept).
She is seen more in season five of Duck Dynasty than she has been seen in the past and viewers have gotten to know her a v
Not to be outdone by her fashionista sisters-in-law, Jessica and Jep will be starting their own fashion line in 2014. In late 2013, they teamed up with fashion label Corello as a fundraiser for Saint Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
