The point is the Duck Dynasty was filthy rich long before A&E came calling, and they'll be filthy rich long after...

Yes Don before the shown they had money , they also were clean shaven and suit wearers typical yuppies .
they get the show and suddenly become bearded rednecks all sitting at one table blah blah blah. Its marketing pure and simple.
They are about as real as the wrestling their fans believe to be real.
The show is as unstaged and a jerry springer episode

Im not in the habit of watching reality TV that has so little to do with reality.
I also dont care for canned hunts or trophy hunting.
Frankly taking religious advice from Phil is a bit like taking edicate advice from paris hilton or driving lessons from lindsy lohan , Or to be even more accurate taking spelling lessons from me.
Personally I really dont give a flying rats ass what Phil says, nor does he care what I say. Its really just another great none issue to keep people distracted.
I do give Phil Credit at least he actually says something and stands with his statements which is more than can be said for some long winded posters here

The one and only time I watched the show was when they had all family event went to picnic on a creek....that was enough for me.

I don't think you can make this family up.....they seem to be genuine and like most Americans are just real people.

Of course not. Thats pretty much the case with 99% of millionaires/billionaires.

ALL REALITY SHOWS ARE STAGED. These people do not write their own scripts, writers do. Occasionally there are some impromptu comments or "scenes" but very few. The film crew with them last year at some of the meet in greets in the area said as much in front of the 4 people I know that were at said meet and greets.

I used to watch occasionally when there was nothing else on, but then it was like Groundhog Day every episode I caught and that ended it. I can see rednecks at walmart on the weekends buying the Duck Dynasty panties etc, no need to waste brain cells watching it on tv.

Again you speak with such authority, claiming you know for a fact the Robertsons were suit wearing yuppies before their A&E publicity... and as usual you appear to offer absolutely nothing to back up any of your statements.

And no doubt anyone who asks you to provide any kind of corroboration for your statements or offers a dissenting opinion to yours will be the target of vituperation.

So I'll try to play it safe.
