According to new reports, Willie and Korie Robertson are planning to leave Duck Dynasty show.
A source told the National Enquirer that Willie and Korie Robertson are headed in different directions.
“It looks like big trouble is brewing in their marriage,” the source said.
Willie and Korie Robertson have been married for 22 years. Although there is no indication that divorce is imminent, a split would put their $30 million fortune at risk.

Korie Robertson, 40, reportedly wants to move to Los Angeles where she can turn her four kids into stars, while her husband wants to stay in backwoods Louisiana and may want to kick off a career in politics, the source said.
Korie is also said to believe that their 16-year-old daughter Sadie will find it easier to expand her budding modeling career in Los Angeles.
Although Willie denied this summer that he planned to go into politics, “Willie got a taste of the big political arena when he attended the president’s recent State of the Union Address as a guest of Louisiana Rep. Vance McAllister,” said the source.
Willie and Korie Robertson, who have their own fortunes and also own a slice of the family’s lucrative duck call business empire, would suddenly find an estimated $30 million in play if they land in divorce court, according to an insider.

In this week’s episode of Duck Dynasty, Phil Robertson struggled to turn on his television to watch a Jason Bourne movie.
Miss Kay and Phil Robertson finally gave up and called son Willie help them figure out how to work their TV set.
“Pioneer men and technology go together about as well as mayonnaise and apple sauce,” said Miss Kay Robertson as she called up Willie who was somewhat reluctant to help.
“Let’s make something clear,” said Willie Robertson.
Miss Kay Robertson asked Willie for a lesson in texting
“I love my parents and I’m happy to help them with the occasional simple task, but it’s never just one simple task and it never takes just one minute.”
As soon as Willie Robertson finished helping his father learn how to turn on his Jason Bourne films, Miss Kay asked him for a lesson in texting.
“The grandkids want me to talk to them on the phone with text and I don’t know how to do it,” Miss Kay Robertson said.
“I want to learn how to make that little heart and a smiley face.”
“Oh good grief,” said Willie Robertson who immediately regretted teaching his mom about emojis.
In this week’s episode of Duck Dynasty, Si Robertson’s coworkers at the Duck Commander warehouse learned some new and disgusting habits from the Vietnam War veteran.
Uncle Si’s nephew, Jase Robertson, commented on throwing away the hardened drop of mustard that sits over the dispenser. Like most people, he finds that part to be gross.
Not Uncle Si though who says his life motto is “waste not, want to”.
“It tastes good and it’s chewy,” Si Robertson explained while disgusting all of his coworkers who were avoiding doing work.
But Willie Robertson found a way to motivate his crew: ice cream.
“As CEO, I’ve learned that motivating people is hard,” he said.

So in order to get the Duck Commander crew working again, Willie Robertson bought a soft serve ice cream place.
Unfortunately for Willie, his tactics didn’t work because they were “manipulative” according to Jase.
Instead, Jase Robertson updated a four wheeler that he bought without permissions on his corporate card.
While Willie disciplined his brother on abusing his position at Duck Commander, he couldn’t deny Jase’s idea worked.
“When I was growing up, my parents taught me the value of hard work and when you’re running a business it’s easy to get caught up in trying to make sure everyone is working hard all the time,” said Willie Robertson.
“What I’ve learned is that life can’t be all about work,” he continued.
“Sometimes the best way to get people to work hard, is to let them have a little fun first.”
“Because even though hard work is important, everybody deserves a little fun. even if your definition of fun is sending your grown son little smiley faces and hearts even stinking minute,” Willie Robertson concluded.
On the last episode of Duck Dynasty, Willie and Jase Robertson argue over an old GI Joe toy.
This leads them into a debate over who would make a better soldier.

Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! how he got invited to this year’s State of the Union in Washington D.C. and what President Barack Obama thought of his outfit.
Willie Robertson and Barack Obama ran into each other when the A&E star attended the State of the Union and caught up after first meeting at last year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
The Duck Dynasty star said he was getting ready to get on an elevator when he was told he couldn’t just yet because the president was coming.
“The president’s walking down the hall. And he sees me and he goes, <<Willie, what’s up?>>” Willie Robertson recalled.
“I’m like, <<Hey, what’s up?>> So we’re talking, and we’re having this conversation.”
Barack Obama even teased Willie Robertson about his outfit, since the Duck Dynasty star was not as formally-attired for the State of the Union as he was for the Correspondents’ Dinner.

“The last time I met him, at the Correspondents’ Dinner, I had a tux on,” Willie Robertson explains.
“He’s like, <<Where’s the tux?>> I’m like, <<This is my State of the Union attire>>.”
Willie Robertson also revealed how he even got invited to go to the State of the Union in the first place, something that left a number of political pundits scratching their heads.
“So, my buddy, Vance McAllister wins this special election,” Willie Robertson begins, laughing as he starts his story.
“He’s only in for a year and then he has to run again, so he calls me up and he says, <<Willie, State of the Union man. I may only be here for a year, you want to roll?>> I said <<Let’s go, man, let’s do it>>. We’re literally high-fiving in the back of it like, <<Can you believe it? We’re here>>.”
Willie Robertson and his wife Korie, who joined him on the ABC late-night show, also said that the politicians mostly asked them about Uncle Si and whether he’s really like he is on the show.

Last night’s episode of Duck Dynasty showed how Willie and Jase Robertson settled their beef in the only way a redneck knows how.
“As an older brother, Jase has always acted like he’s better at everything,” complained Willie Robertson.
“One time he even told me he was better at flipping channels. But this time Jase has bitten off more than he can chew.”
“The whole town? You don’t make the best burger in the family!” Jase Robertson told his younger brother Willie.
“I make better burgers than you.”
At first, the two asked Uncle Si Robertson to settle the feud but Si was no help. When asked if he preferred Willie’s burgers to Jase’s, Si Robertson answered he preferred Phil’s first and then Miss Kay’s.
“I have to eat one from both of you,” said Si Robertson.
“In a burger-eating competition, there’s no question Willie is your man but this is a burger-making competition,” said a confident Jase Robertson.
“Willie is going down. I’m like the redneck Emeril Lagasse.”
While the two competitors made their way to the grocery store to pick up ingredients, youngest brother Jep Robertson got roped into helping his father get rid of his unwanted junk.
“Around here, stuff tends to pile up,” said Phil Robertson.
Willie and Jase Robertson settle beef in redneck style
“A whole lot of what most people would characterize as junk.”
When Jep Robertson showed up looking for old newspapers for his wife Jessica to use in an arts and crafts project, his father Phil capitalized on the situation.
“When my son comes rolling in, I have to seize upon the opportunity,” explained Phil Robertson.
“Next thing you know, the pile’s not there anymore.”
But Jep Robertson wasn’t falling for his father’s old tricks that easily.
Phil Robertson tried to unload old phonebooks and other paper goods on his son, but Jep stayed true to his mission and only accepted the paper.
“I’ve seen my dad try to set this kind of trap before,” Jep Robertson said.
“I came up for a few stacks of newspaper and that’s what I’m going to leave with.”
But it wasn’t long before Phil Robertson had Jep lugging a pick up truck full of junk to the recycling center.
It wasn’t until Jep Robertson had almost finished unloading the old newspapers, did Phil reveal they were covered in rat pee.
“Subdivision people, [rat pee] runs through them like sauce in a cat,” Phil Robertson said as he warned Jep to wash his hands well after touching the paper.
“Most dads would just ask for their sons help,” Jep Robertson said.
“My dad is different. But most fathers don’t have thousands of newspapers soaked with rat pee. Rat pee in my beard, thanks dad.”
Back at the Duck Commander warehouse, no duck calls were being made per usual and the boys began their cook off.
The competition got serious when Willie Robertson asked to borrow Jase’s pan.
“[Willie] wants to share [a pan] in a burger cook off?” a bewildered Jase Robertson asked.
“As competitive as Willie is, the man doesn’t understand competition.”
“Would Batman give the Penguin his bat mobile? Would I give a duck a bulletproof vest? Of course not!”
In the end, the two brothers only proved that the burger making business is better left to Phil and Miss Kay. Even Duck Commander employee and food enthusiast John Godwin couldn’t stomach their patties.
Wednesday’s episode of Duck Dynasty showed Willie Robertson and the Duck Commander crew preparing for an all-nighter to fill a shipment order at the warehouse.
“Why aren’t y’all working?” Willie Robertson asked when he saw that the duck call crafters were goofing off, again, during work hours.
“The point is we’ve got to get the work done then we can play.”
As usual, the guys completely ignored their boss and went on to deal with more important things such as is Uncle Si just like MacGyver.
“Everybody knows [MacGyver] was the ultimate redneck,” said Si Robertson.
Jase Robertson got his payback when Willie fell asleep and they drew think eyebrows with permanent marker on the CEO’s face
“Kind of like me.”
“It’s borderline embarrassing the real reason Willie is volunteering his help is because he feels like the odd one out,” Jase Robertson said in frustration at his younger brother’s need to fit in with the group.
“Having [Willie Robertson] around here, it’s like having your mom at the prom. It’s cramping my style.”
Jase Robertson got his payback when Willie fell asleep and they drew think eyebrows with permanent marker on the CEO’s face.
“Willie missed out on a fey key developments while he was asleep,” joked Jase Robertson.
“When you fall asleep bad things happen.”
“People always say be careful what you wish for, you might just get it,” Willie Robertson said.
“Lucky for us, Robertsons have extremely thick skin.”
“So it doesn’t matter if you end being the butt of the jokes you want to be a part of,” he continued.
“Or your scary story plan backfires into some whip cream into your face. You’ve got to find the humor underneath.”
“As long as everyone including you gets a good laugh out of it, the wish wasn’t completely wasted.”
Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson will join Louisiana Rep. Vance McAllister during the State of the Union address on Tuesday.
Willie Robertson had endorsed Vance McAllister during his Congressional bid.
The CEO of Duck Commander appeared in a TV ad advising voters to “send somebody from the 5th District who speaks for us to help turn Washington around”.
Vance McAllister, a wealthy Louisiana businessman, was elected in November.

He had also scored an endorsement from Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson, whose anti-gay remarks earned him a short-lived suspension from the A&E show.
“I am proud to have my close friend, constituent and small business owner, Willie Robertson, attend tonight’s State of the Union Address as my special guest,” Vance McAllister said in a statement about his choice of guest for his first State of the Union.
“Willie is thankful for this opportunity and honored to attend. I look forward to the two of us representing the Fifth District in DC this evening and bringing some diversity to our nation’s capitol.”

On Duck Dynasty Season 5 premiere night, the bearded Robertson clan was debating the artistic superiority of the Air Bud versus Jason Bourne film franchise.
There was also contention surrounding the merits of group texting and emojis.
Jase, Jep, Phil, Willie and John Luke Robertson went on a hunting excursion. But they aren’t talking ducks. Rather they were in deep debate about all things texting related.
Jase Robertson said: “Group texts are the worst. They’re like a terrible technological snowball coming down a mountain and you can’t stop it… What was the original conversation? No one knows. No one cares. Stop having a conversation on my phone.”
This naturally led to discussion of emojis, of which John Luke Robertson is also a fan.

“Like smiley faces and people – animals sometimes,” he said.
John Luke Robertson continued to discuss emojis with his father Willie after duck hunting is over, saying: “There are all kinds of emojis.”
Willie Robertson asked: “What’s that? A bearded guy?”
John Luke answered: “That’s a monkey.”
Duck Dynasty’s newcomer Rebecca Robertson told John Luke that guys don’t really emoji.

Duck Dynasty Season 5 premiered last night on A&E with two episodes.
Viewers were introduced to Rebecca Robertson, a Taiwanese foreign exchange student that Willie and his wife Korie adopted 10 years ago.
Rebecca Robertson, 24, studied fashion in LA, but then came back to Louisiana for what Willie thought was a visit. But when Rebecca brings a million suitcases and a French bull dog, it’s clear that this isn’t a two-day trip. Rebecca, however, is welcomed home with open arms and a planned out surprise party — the Robertson men bought a banner that says “Congratulations” instead of “Welcome Home” because it was on sale.

The other new character is a family member of Korie Robertson. John David is Willie’s new assistant who Jase Robertson said only got hired because: “He just wanted someone heavier and hairier so that he would look better by comparison.”
At first there’s tension in the workplace — John David wears flip flops, brings lukewarm donuts, and doesn’t know how to blow a duck call — but he makes up for it after he buys the team a new basketball.
John David won a place in Willie’s heart because he can recite Nacho Libre ad nauseam.
Uncle Si Robertson is sick, so he has planted his “microbe” infested body on Phil’s couch to be taken care of by Miss Kay.
Si Robertson has also brought every single movie in the Air Bud franchise.
“Look, I’m a connoisseur when it comes to animal sports movies – Air Bud is an epic classic,” Si Robertson says.
“It blows Rudy out of the water … it makes Field of Dreams look like Rookie of the Year.”
Phil Robertson can’t agree because it’s too unrealistic. A dog just can’t dunk a basketball! He prefers the Bourne series.
There was also a lot of talk of microbes throughout the two episodes. Phil Robertson thinks Uncle Si is a hypochondriac who has claimed to have everything from bird flu to sausage fingers.
In the second part of the show, Phil Robertson has his own bizarre microbe philosophies.
Jep Robertson says his father used to expose them to microbes all the time to build up immunities. Phil Robertson suggests Jep do the same for his kids by having them go outside and throw dung at each other.
Meanwhile, Uncle Si organized an age-inappropriate treasure hunt for Jep’s kids that was as confusing to its participants as it was to the audience. It culminated in digging up candy buried in what appeared to be a grave site.

A new family member has joined Duck Dynasty reality for this fifth season: Korie and Willie Robertson’s adopted daughter, Rebecca.
Rebecca Robertson, 24, has remained off-screen up until now, but she’s decided to step in front of cameras this year.
Becca came to the family as an exchange student from Taiwan, and eventually, Willie and Korie Robertson took her in full-time as a foster child.

The interview with Duck Dynasty’s Willie and Korie Robertson on Fox News Channel appears to have given a welcome jolt to the network’s New Year’s Eve coverage.
All-American New Year’s Eve on Tuesday put Fox News ahead of CNN’s rival New Year’s Eve Live in total viewers, in the period from 11 p.m. to 12:00 a.m.
This included Bill Hemmer and Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s interview with Willie and Korie Robertson, which helped FNC gain considerable boosts over the previous year.
The special aired from 9 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. and averaged 1.7 million total viewers, compared to the 1.4 million that the CNN offering, co-hosted by Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin, averaged.
In the key news demo, however, CNN’s New Year’s Eve offering still came out on top, averaging 584,000 viewers to the 329,000 that Fox’s offering averaged.

The 11 p.m. to midnight period that included Willie and Korie Robertson’s interview, meanwhile, averaged 1.97 million total viewers, compared to CNN’s 1.73 million.
Again, CNN won the demo in that time period, averaging 742,000 viewers 25-54 compared to 401,000 for Fox.
In the demo, All-American New Year’s Eve averaged 413,000 total viewers during that time period, a 19% boost over the previous year.
Even so, CNN bested Fox in that time period, averaging 2.095 million total viewers and 906,000 in the demo – though those numbers were down 11% and 4%, respectively, from the previous year.

Duck Dynasty family has launched their own line of guns in collaboration with gunmaker Mossberg.
Mossberg has teamed with Duck Commander, the company owned by Duck Dynasty family, to release nine different shotguns, as well as two semiautomatic rifles and a semiautomatic pistol.
The gunmaker has begun shipping some of the shotguns to distributors, according to spokeswoman Linda Powell. She declined to name specific retailers that will carry them.
Phil Robertson founded Duck Commander 40 years ago.
The Duck Dynasty patriarch was recently suspended – and then reinstated – by A&E network after making controversial remarks about gay people and African-Americans during GQ magazine interview.
Phil Robertson and his sons are featured prominently in four video ads for the new guns on Mossberg website. He narrates one of the spots saying: “Do you know what makes me happy ladies and gentlemen? To blow a mallard drake’s head smooth off.”
Duck Dynasty family has launched their own line of guns in collaboration with gunmaker Mossberg
The Robertson family business in Louisiana sells duck calls as well as hunting DVDs and clothing through Wal-Mart and other retailers. Duck Dynasty brand has already been affixed to everything from action figures and door mats to wine, (produced by the Trinchero Family Estates) as well as books about cooking and religion.
Mossberg says the Duck Commander guns will come in a “waterfowl pattern” camouflage design, though not all of them are intended for duck hunting. They also bear the Duck Commander logo, of a duck in flight.
The pistol and one of the rifles have military-style designs with large capacity magazines holding at least 25 rounds. The rifle has some of the features of an assault rifle, but with a relatively low .22 caliber.
Mossberg’s website says its .22-caliber pistol is “perfect for small game, plinking, target shooting – or clearing cottonmouths out of your duck blind.”
The firearms will all come with an American flag bandana like the one worn by Willie Robertson.

Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson chose not to quack back during his appearance Tuesday night on Fox News’s All-American New Year special.
In one of his first chances to comment on the controversy surrounding his father and co-star Phil Robertson, Willie Robertson had only kind words for the A&E network and New Year’s wishes for the nation.
“We’re just glad to be back to work, and A&E and us are fine,” Willie Robertson said in a live appearance with his wife Korie Robertson from Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
Hosts Bill Hemmer and Elizabeth Hasselbeck gave Willie Robertson several chances to address the firestorm surrounding the suspension of his father over anti-gay comments, but without quite ducking the question, the rsality star chose not to take the bait either.

“We’re looking forward to getting back to making some funny shows. It’s a New Year so we’re ready to break in a New Year and start it all over again,” Willie Robertson said.
“We’re ready to move on, you know. I think we all learned a lot and we’re just ready to move on, and the family’s happy, and we’re ready to go. I’ve got to make sure my guys are back there building duck calls.”
Asked her thoughts on the suspension by Hasselbeck, Korie Robertson took the same conciliatory tone.
“Hey, I’m just glad the family’s all together, the best thing about the show is we get to do it as a family,” she said.
“We’re all happy, happy, happy.”
A&E reinstated Phil Robertson on Friday, nine days after suspending him over the anti-gay comments made to GQ magazine.

Duck Dynasty stars returned to TV for a Christmas special and proved themselves to be a triple threat when they showed off their acting skills at their church’s nativity play.
“Considering the talent involved, it’s borderline miraculous [we pulled off the play],” Jase Robertson said.
Even the Robertson’s youngest brother Jep, who has terrible stage fright, managed to remember his one line.
However, Uncle Si Robertson, who played one of the wise men, insisted on calling frankincense “franken scents.”
“Everybody knows that <<franken>> is a prefix,” Si Robertson explained.
“Like <<franken stein>> and <<frank and beans>>.”
While the nativity play, which featured the entire family, went on fairly smoothly, the episode focused on what the Robertson family does best: hunting.
“Well every Christmas, it seems like my house is invaded by yuppies,” said Phil Robertson as he prepared to go hunting for the family’s Christmas dinner.

“All they do all day long is decorate and talk.”
Before Phil Robertson could head out to hunt, Miss Kay and Jessica insisted he take them hog hunting.
“In the spirit of Christmas and in the spirit of the American West, we say y’all get your camo on,” he told them before quickly regretting his decision to let the women join him.
“If the yapping keeps up there won’t be a hog coming within a mile of us,” Phil Robertson complained. Failing to get Jessica and Miss Kay to stay quiet, Phil devised a plan to trick them into acting foolish.
He told them to scream for the pigs to come while walking in a circle and bending close to the ground. After several minutes of this Phil couldn’t hold back his laughter and the jig was up.
But there was no harm done as Phil soon after shot a pig for their Christmas dinner. He enlisted the help of Jessica who was not too happy to help her father-in-law drag the pig back to the truck.
“I’m a better pioneer woman [than Jessica],” Miss Kay said.
“I’ve been helping cleaning and carrying hogs since I could carry and clean hogs.”
Meanwhile, Willie Robertson was searching for the perfect present to get his wife Korie after she admitted he was not the best gift giver. In previous years she received a Snuggie and a bedazzled clutch.
Determined to make this year different, Willie Robertson took the advice of younger brother Jep and had a family portrait framed.
Satisfied his gift would make an impression on his wife, Willie Robertson was disappointed when brother Jase turned up with the same gift for his wife Missy.
Despite the minor setback, both wives loved their gifts and Willie was happy to save the “camo pajamas” he bought Korie for her birthday.
Alan Robertson also made an appearance on last night’s episode sporting some new scruff. The former minister led the family and the church in a prayer after the nativity play.
Willie Robertson’s Armadillo Eggs Recipe
Servings: Over 8
Cook Time: 1-30 min
- 6 to 8 large jalapeño peppers, cut in half lengthwise, seeds and ribs removed
- 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
- 2 pounds breakfast sausage, formed into 12 to 16 patties

Willie Robertson’s Armadillo Eggs
If you’re using a grill, heat it to medium. If not, heat the oven to 400ºF. Fill each jalapeño half with cream cheese. Mold sausage around each jalapeño half, making sure to cover the entire jalapeño. Wrap each “armadillo egg” with a slice of bacon.
Cook the eggs on an open grill until the sausage is cooked through and the bacon is crispy. If you don’t have an outdoor grill, bake in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes, then broil until the bacon is crispy.
Remove the eggs from the grill or oven and cover with melted butter.

- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 4 slices bacon, cut in thirds crosswise
Heat the oven to 400ºF. Slice the bread about 1 inch thick without cutting all the way through. Place the bread on the cookie sheet. Pour butter between the slices, then stuff cheese between the slices. Sprinkle with garlic salt. Top the bread with the bacon slices without overlapping them.
Bake until the cheese has melted, about 5 minutes. Turn the oven to broil and cook the bacon to your taste.
