In Jesus Name - Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson talks about the ending to his prayers

President Obama greeted friends, acquaintances, famous people and even a few duck hunters on Saturday night during the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner. While some fans love watching the remarks of President Obama live there was another reason to tune in. When it comes to pop culture, the folks who eat with the commander-in-chief on this special night are usually the people currently trending in Hollywood. However, there were a few famous faces from Louisiana that made a splash, too.

Willie Robertson and his spouse Korie were guests at the banquet and made quite a splash. From the grand entrance at the beginning to the stunning pictures of the two on the red carpet, people were whispering with delight after seeing the couple from "Duck Dynasty" arriving for the formal dinner. Fans were so surprised to see the couple at the function that when the cameras caught a glimpse of the two stars, several social media sites shared the excitement of the spotting.

Willie Robertson is the CEO of Duck Commander and can be seen regularly on the show "Duck Dynasty" on A&E. Working to control a family business, the top executive always has his hands full when dealing with family matters on the reality show. A&E acknowledged their star was at the dinner with an official announcement on Monday.

“Check out Willie Robertson and Korie at the White House Correspondents' Dinner,” wrote A&E on their official Facebook page. “Looking lovely as always!” Showcasing the couple on the red carpet, there wasn’t any doubt that Willie Robertson was one of a few people sporting a beard at the event. He probably was the only star at the event who wore a bandana around his head, just like he does in the television show.

The cast of "Duck Dynasty" is finding fame from their show. Sharing the day to day lives of a family environment, the reality series showcases a family coming together to run a business while still looking to live the only way they know how.

The reality show is one of two that is popular from Louisiana. While "Duck Dynasty" is taped in West Monroe, up the road a couple of hundred miles the family of Alana Thompson is filming for the TLC reality show, "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo." Sharing the life of a family who loves beauty pageants and all things country, the two shows both have a Southern feel that fans love.
