The Southern Women's Show, an annual weekend extravaganza for women of all ages, is pleased to announce an exciting lineup of celebrity guests for Feb. 21-23, including reality television star Jessica Robertson from A&E's "Duck Dynasty."
The Robertson family is at the center of "Duck Dynasty," highlighting the lives of the family who became wealthy from their family operated business, Duck Commander. The West Monroe, La., business has become a sporting empire making top-of-the-line duck calls and decoys out of salvaged swamp wood.
However, the family's reality television series has become famous for more than just duck calls. The Robertson men - Phil, Si, Jase, Willie and Jep - are characterized by their overgrown beards, strong traditional values and religious views, and an even quirkier sense of humor on life, love and marriage. Since the show premiered in March 2012, "Duck Dynasty" has broken several ratings records on both A&E and cable television, most recently during the fourth season premiere in August 2013 drawing 11.8 million viewers and becoming the most-watched nonfiction cable series in history.
Jessica Robertson is the wife of the youngest Robertson son, Jep, a busy mother to their four kids (Lily, 10; Merritt, 8; Priscilla, 6; and River, 4) and involved in expanding the family business. Robertson will share her personal story about life in Louisiana and the importance of family. Guests can meet Robertson and participate in a special Q&A session during her segment.
"We're so excited to welcome Jessica Robertson to the Southern Women's Show in Savannah," said Katie Cronin, show manager for the Southern Women's Show. "In spite of her widespread fame from 'Duck Dynasty,' Jessica truly embodies the everyday woman. She juggles motherhood, a career, a large-dynamic family, friends and much more. Our guests will appreciate her ideas and candor on keeping it all together!"
Presented by the Georgia Beef Board, guests will also enjoy celebrity guest appearances from Food Network star Emily Ellyn at the Cooking Stage, where she will feature delicious beef recipes at 12:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. Feb. 21 and at 11:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Feb. 22.
Guests can learn how to live their best life now with author and empowerment speaker Sharon Frame at the Spotlight Stage at 2:30 p.m. the entire weekend. Her interactive "back to the future" exercise will have guests brimming with delight as she explains how to re-set your thoughts, re-frame your self-image and step into your dream life now. A former CNN anchor, Frame is an award-winning speaker, host of her own eTV show, a director for Women's Informational Network's Global Women's Summit and an author of four books, including "LeadHERship" and "Wired to Win!"
