Newly Famous 'Duck Dynasty' Ladies Ready for a Splurge
When you suddenly find yourself the star of the most-watched reality television show on cable, what next? It's time for a big splurge, of course, which is exactly what the ladies of "Duck Dynasty" have in mind.
Of course, in true Robertson fashion, Jep's wife Jessica and Jase's wife Missy are keeping their big purchases practical.
"I'm fixin' to buy a vehicle because mine has broken down on me all year long," Jessica told Yahoo! TV at the A+E Networks upfront presentation on Wednesday. "So I'm going to just bite the bullet and get a vehicle."
Her said vehicle of choice? "A Ford F-150 XLT," she confessed. "I like the burgundy color." The sticker price for the 2013 model currently starts at $29,345 MSRP.

Missy, on the other hand, is going a little bigger. Like, a whole kitchen bigger.
"We're in the middle of remodeling and I'm getting the kitchen of my dreams," she said. "I'm getting a six-burner with a griddle range."
Unfortunately, having the perfect kitchen doesn't make her the perfect chef.
"I've gotta learn to cook like Ms. Kay," she admitted. "Even though I've been in the family for 22 years, I don't think I'll ever learn to cook like her. But I'm going to give it an honest try."
When asked about the experience of going from the bayous of Louisiana to a red carpet event in New York City, they both described the feeling as "surreal." But their newfound notoriety isn't yet getting them all the perks of fame. They haven't received any calls from posh clothing designers begging to dress them, for instance.
"We're waiting on that, by the way," Jessica said with a wink.
