Everyone's favorite uncle, Si, has a best-selling book out, Si-cology 1, and it's just like Si, charming, funny and just a bit cheeky. The Tupperware toting Duck Dynasty star spoke to FOX411 about the book and some surprising hardships that he's battled.
FOX411: What's with the cups?
Uncle Si: I'm always just carrying a Tupperware cup, ever since my mom went to a Tupperware party and got 'em. I've left them strewn all over the U.S. and Europe. I drink iced tea out of them.
FOX411: Will you have an iced-tea line?
Si: Well, that's in the works I think.
FOX411: Anything you guys have said no to?
Si: (Laughs) They're coming up with new ideas all the time. That's Willie's and Corey's department. I don't get involved in the business end of it.
FOX411: You write very honestly about your wife's difficulty in conceiving.
Si: She went to all the specialists and they all said, You'll never have kids. I said, Don't worry about it. She said, Yeah but I know you love 'em so I'm not going to marry you. I said, Hey, don't worry about that. The doctors don't have the final word. I believe in a higher power, and I've got what you call two miracle babies, my daughter and my son and they gave me four grandsons a piece.
FOX411: You were also very honest about your son's mental health issues.
Si: Yeah he had some serious problems. The doctors finally figured out the medicine he needed and then everything was fine. Sometimes it's necessary to medicate.

What’s his sister’s name?
Love ole Si!
soso sue me
Why would I want to do that?
I love Si!
I was at a Walgreen’s a bit ago and saw the Halloween crap on display.
Be prepared for a slew of DD characters wanting candy on the 31st.
When I first saw the promos for DD, I thought it was a dumb program and I had no interest. Now I see it is one of the top three programs on cable. I guess I should watch a few to see what it is about. Is it true that it is real life?
That would explain the lack of polish in the acting.
News flash! They ain’t acting.........
Alex, it’s “Scripted” to a point but the Robertsons are just awesome. Good clean fun and every show closed in prayer. God Bless ‘em!
Thanks...I will check it out. I probably watch History channel more then any other. I am watching Pawn Stars as I type this.
As did Last Man Standing when they guested on it this week. Straight out Jesus talk - I was on my feet cheering.
Oh, I forgot to ask....Are girls/women in America really destroying their bodies with ugly tattoos ?
On History channel, almost all girls have them slathered all over their bodies....really disgusting.
Lots are, it’s the “trendy” “ I’m an individual” thing to do. I have a couple but are well covered, and frankly regret them. Many more do not though.
“Lots are, its the trendy”
Just think how they will look when they are 50+ years old.
It is not as if one could just wash them off.
I can understand a small discrete tattoo that is not obvious, but take a look at that gal on “The Pickers”.
She is just one of many on the History channel.
I know what you mean.
It’s a reality show, and supposedly the #1
Lower class white women in America today are fat as pigs and covered in ink and usually have a few bastard kids in tow....most often from absent black sperm donors
Most black women are fat and have ink
Most under 30 white girls have some ink even rich girls and hipsters in particular
Its not pretty and its worse outside conservative areas like the South and other flyover areas
God help us.....American women have never been so trashy and American men never before either so feral or feminized....black and white...respectively
I watch the show for the women....I’m married to one approximately like Willies wife
And had a grandma like Miss Kate
I grew up 70 miles east of there and hunted the area as a boy
They are a mite odd
But they love God and our culture and have fine women
I respect that....a lot
You haven’t seen anything until you’ve lived in the NW.
I love this show!
Sorry to be the one to break it to you
But it is quite bad
“Its not pretty and its worse outside conservative areas like the South “
I just do not understand why the History channel would feature tattooed girls so much...Anyway, also thanks for your
other reply’s about the deteriorating culture in America.
I doubt that I will return within my lifetime.
