Why isn't si's wife on duck dynasty?

Uncle Si's wife, Christine has stayed out of the spotlight while her husband and family skyrocketed to fame with Duck Dynasty.

When asked why his wife is not on the show, Si stated in an interview with Parade, "She doesn’t want any part of it. It’s very simple–she’s got better sense than all the rest of us!"

Christine Robertson, Si's wife has yet to tell the media why she hasn't appeared on Duck Dynasty. Critics of the show speculate that she isn't ready to come out from behind the scenes and let the public get to know her. There are also reports that Si is unhappy about the invasion of privacy since the show's success.

There was some confusion about Si's and Christine's exact relationship until Jessica, Jep Robertson's wife posted a photo on her Twitter page with the caption "Me, #Si & his sweet WIFE Christine @Mrs.Kay’s 65 bday party! So blessed to have such a large & close family." You can see the photo here.

It was revealed in Willie Robertson's book "The Duck Commander Family: How Faith, Family, and Ducks Built a Dynasty" that Si and Christine have two children, a son named Scott Robertson and a daughter named Trasa Robertson Cobern who also aren't featured on the show. Uncle Si and Miss Christine have been married for 43 years.

It wasn't until the premiere of season 5 that Christine's name was mentioned in the show. Miss Kay Robertson asked Uncle Si where Christine was and he told that she was out of town with friends.

In Duck Dynasty news, season 6 is set to premiere in June 2014. Follow Duck Dynasty on A&E for the exact date. The new season promo's song is causing a stir among fans. It's called "Working'" by Big Smo.
