I think we can pretty much credit MTV with the birth of reality television thanks to the explosion of The Real World, but it didn't stop there. Think about all of the families we watch on a weekly basis, from the Robertsons to the Kardashians to everyone in between. Where did the madness begin? Some may say with a ride on the crazy train courtesy of The Osbournes. Don't act like you didn't watch!
We saw Jack and Kelly Osbourne grow up on camera (although eldest daughter Amy didn't participate) with the always hilarious chirping busybody of a "mum" Sharon and bumbling, mumbling former death metal star Ozzy. And, of course, don't forget their tiny pooches! Now Kelly is a fashion consultant for E! and Jack is family man–how precious is his wife? (pictured with him and his parents above)–currently competing on Dancing with the Stars…but do they ever think about going back to the days of reality television's first family?
What is this world coming to? Seriously! I am quickly losing faith in humankind. First, Kim Kardashiangets engaged for a third time, and I have yet to rent space on my ring finger to any cubic zirconia, much less a fifteen carat diamond. Then, my love Pauly D goes and fathers a child behind my back (come to think of it, maybe my attraction to Pauly D has something to do with the caliber of guys I find who aren't proposing—and that's likely a good thing!), and now someone has just gone too far. TOO FAR!
You want to smash the pumpkin on my front porch? Go for it, you punk vandal. Your sticky fingers want to take more than your fair share of the candy I leave out on Halloween? Eat away, chubs! But do not, I repeat, DO NOT, defile all that is good and decent in the world…namely Duck Dynasty'sUncle Si Robertson!
In the immortal words of Stephanie Tanner, "How rude!" Is this what the world is coming to? Families decorate for fall only to have their hard work stolen during the dark of night? For shame. This news makes me anything but happy, happy, happy!
Duck Dynastyfans and decent people in general from Ball Ground, Georgia are appalled after the town's favorite scarecrow went missing last Wednesday. The scarecrow, sporting camouflage, was a dead ringer for Uncle Si.
Friday news flash, y'all–I love the Robertson family from Duck Dynasty. Just when I think Korie and Willie Robertson couldn't be kinder or more down-to-earth, they go and and share their story about how expanding their family through adoption changed their lives.
Apparently, when the Robertson clan isn't writing bestsellers or opening stores (or starring in their hit show, for that matter!), they are out doing good and spreading awareness about what is important to them–faith and family. Take note, Kardashians!
Well, I think we all know my first stop if I ever make it to Monroe, Louisiana! Well, wait. My FIRST stop would be a stalkeresque drive-by of Phil and Miss Kay's house. This will be my second stop…or my third. Second will probably be the Duck Commander warehouse. But, this place will certainly be on my list. Where you ask? Why, Duck and Dressing, of course! Is there anything these Duck Dynasty folks can't do?
Willie Robertson's wife Korierecently shared the news on Twitter that she and daughter Rebecca will be opening Monroe's newest and most quackably chic boutique!
They're not going anywhere, and I, for one, couldn't be more elated happy, happy, happy! The phenomenon that is Duck Dynasty keeps spreading faith, humor, family values, and positivity, and it isn't going anywhere any time soon.
I know you'll agree with me that it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. Silas Robertson is married, y'all! Of course, we all already knew this, although Uncle Si's wife has stayed out of the spotlight while her husband and family skyrocketed to fame withDuck Dynasty.
When news of Si's happy forty-three union became common knowledge, hearts were breaking all over the country, although his love for his wife made all those broken-hearted ladies adore him even more. Am I right? Oh, I know I am!
