The women of Duck Dynasty spoke out about the influence of fame and more in a recent interview with Good Morning America.

Kay, Korie, Missy, Jessica, and Lisa Robertson interviewed for GMA after the Duck Dynasty season finale to promote their new book and discuss how the show has affected their lives. The five women, who are married to Phil, Willie, Jase, Jep, and Alan Robertson, respectively, have written The Women of Duck Commander: Surprising Insights from the Women Behind the Beards About What Makes This Family Work with contributor Beth Clark.

"It is so easy for me to be honest now," Kay says of the book. "God loves me, my fans love me, my family loves me so I tell it all."

The Duck Dynasty matriarch also spoke out about her husband Phil's inflammatory comments about homosexuals.

"You know as far as Phil with the gay thing, love everybody that is gay," Kay says. "But yes because he quoted the scripture that said that, he would do it again because that's just who he is."

"He's honest," she continues. "He loves people. He really does."

The women agree that the fame that has come with the show has been both a blessing and a curse. It has also had some unexpected effects, including turning their men into sex symbols.

"Last year a lady asked to take a picture with Jep," Jessica relates. "During the picture he said she...grabbed his rear end!"

"The women are after the men!" Missy agrees.

The fifth season of Duck Dynasty came to a close on March 26. The series has been renewed for a sixth season, and The Women of Duck Commander book hits shelves on April 1.
