Miss Kay and Phil Robertson are two of the most beloved members of the Robertson family, with the two notably sparking laughs and comical moments throughout 11 seasons of “Duck Dynasty.”
The Robertsons quickly became a household name when their A&E show turned mega-popular after its 2012 launch, with the family’s authentic faith instantaneously attracting a devoted fanbase.
But while the show was lighthearted and fun and shed light on the importance of faith and family, the Robertsons’ early years were anything but picturesque.
Miss Kay and Phil have both openly revealed the struggles they faced early on in their marriage, with Phil’s alcohol use and infidelity inflicting intense pain on the family.
And in the finale of PureFlix.com’s “Restored With Missy Robertson,” Miss Kay dove deep into these difficulties, sharing raw and emotional details surrounding Phil’s conversion to Christianity — a move that changed absolutely everything for him and the family.
Watch the powerful story:
“My husband Phil … his first time he said he came to the Lord, I think he really didn’t,” she said. “He was very young and he just didn’t understand it.”
She said things really started to go off-the-rails in Phil’s life when he went to college. Then, when she got pregnant, he wouldn’t go to church with her — and things started getting more complicated.
“That was the beginning of the downfall of Phil,” Miss Kay explained. “When the devil moved in and he started changing.”
She said she never saw the problems coming, but that, once the situation turned downhill, it just kept worsening. Eventually, Miss Kay realized that infidelity had also come into play.
“I had to know that he was unfaithful, because I wasn’t that stupid,” she said, noting that she had justification for leaving the marriage, but that she wanted to stay and fight. “I had an out. I didn’t want an out.”
