During Fox News' New Year's Eve special, Willie Robertson told anchorsBill Hemmer and Elisabeth Hasselbeck, "A&E and us are fine [and] we're looking forward to getting back to making some funny shows. It's a new year, so we're ready to break in a new year and start all over again"
Last month, Phil Robertson made headlines when he told GQ magazinethat he views homosexuality as a sin. One of the more explicit comments included Robertson saying, "It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man's anus." A&E quickly suspended Robertson, but then lifted it less than two weeks later.
"We got a new season coming up in a couple weeks, and we're really excited about that," Willie added during the Fox News interview. "We got a couple of episodes filmed ... and we're ready to move on. I think we all learned a lot, and we're just ready to move on, and the family's happy and ready to go." Added his wife Korie, "At the end of day, we sit down and thank God for our blessings, and we're gonna continue to do that and hopefully we can spread that message. And I think, as a country, if we can come back to that a little bit, we'll have a great 2014."
