Julie Chrisley frustrated with Todd’s lies ahead of sentencing

Julie Chrisley has been frustrated by her husband Todd Chrisley’s lies about renovation plans before they were sentenced to prison for fraud and tax evasion.

During Monday’s season 10 premiere of ‘Chrisley Knows Best,’ the 50-year-old family matriarch said that “being married to Todd means you’ll never call a place home for very long. “.

The family had just moved into their third home in just over a year, which Julie ‘only’ agreed to ‘because it was turnkey’.

However, upon arrival she found that her husband, 53, had completely renovated the property.

“Julie, look, it’s like you’re going to have your eyes done. Then you realize you have to have your neck redone and then you have to have an upper lift and a lower lift,” Todd explained when she demanded to know why he suddenly changed plans without telling her.

Julie, however, disagreed.

“Why did you lie to me?” she asked him, to which her husband replied, “OK, let’s find a question a little easier.”

Elsewhere in the episode, the couple’s oldest children – Savannah, 25, and Chase, 26 – discussed the incident with their mother, who said they hadn’t seen her “that upset since a long time”.

Julie, however, told them she was “over it”.

“I feel like we’re at a stage in our lives where we have to figure out where we’re going to settle down. I want Grayson settled down for the last few years he’s at home before he goes to college. Chloe is 9. She likes stability, not making a house and selling it and moving to another one and selling it,” she added, referring to their 16-year-old son, Grayson, and their adopted daughter, Chloe.

She concluded by pointing out that, in the end, what upset her the most was that her husband lied to her.

Although it was filmed in the fall of 2022, the premiere did not acknowledge the couple’s legal issues. The duo were charged with fraud and tax evasion in August 2019 and were later found guilty of the crimes in June 2022.

Julie is currently serving a seven-year prison sentence at Federal Medical Center in Lexington, Kentucky, while Todd is scheduled to serve 12 years at Federal Prison Camp in Pensacola, Florida.

Although both are currently behind bars, they have maintained their innocence and are appealing their convictions.

Savannah recently offered insight into her parents’ lives in their respective prison environments.

“My mom, honestly, she’s doing great, and I know it sounds crazy for me to say that like it’s crazy for me to say, ‘Okay, they’re doing great,’ but they are,” the couple’s eldest daughter said. his “Unlocked” podcast last week.

The reality TV star told her listeners that her mum had “made some friends” and was “looking after herself”.

“She goes to church, she works, she plays spades – and when I tell you she plays, she throws a dog at everyone.”

Meanwhile, Todd has been “absolutely amazing” in encouraging his fellow inmates to “know Jesus”, Savannah said.

“He works in the chapel, which is absolutely amazing, and I could never be more proud of my father and the man he is,” she said.

“I can hear all the stories of these people and how it affects their lives and encourages change…It’s not the ideal situation, but we find strength in knowing it’s not the end.”

“Chrisley Knows Best” airs Mondays at 11 p.m. ET on USA Networks.
