It appears there are more important things than getting interviewed by the iconic Barbara Walters following the claims that Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson decided to go hunting instead of attending an interview with the iconic newswoman.
“Tell him I have never been superseded by a duck before,” Walters quipped during the special, according to a transcript of the interview obtained by FOX411. The special will air Wednesday on ABC.
“He would rather shoot ducks than talk to us, yes?” Walters mused.
Miss Kay attempted to explain her husband’s decision to the famed interviewer.
“Oh yes. Between, uh, November and January, I told him I didn’t ever plan to die then, because, he may not be at my funeral,” she said with a laugh.
The Robertson family told Walters it isn’t the first time Phil has opted out of a big event in favor of hunting. Jessica, Jep’s wife, also spoke to Walters alongside her mother-in-law.
“Well, he missed the birth of Jase, Missy’s husband, because he was in the duck line and he wouldn’t leave…” she recalled. “And so yes, he missed the birth of his son.”
Kay jumped to her husband’s defense, explaining that he was “very young and immature” at that time.
But they won't be the only ones Barbara will be interviewing on the TV special as the legendary newswoman will sit down with the “girl on fire” Jennifer Lawrence. Meanwhile, the queen of twerking, Miley Cyrus, and power couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West also made the list.
