The Chrisley knows best stars, sentenced of tax evasion and bank fraud in June, serve a combined 19 years Behind bars: 12 years for Todd at Pensacola Federal Correctional Institution in Florida, and seven for Julie at Federal Medical Center Lexington in Lexington, Ky.
“Last week was an extremely difficult week for my family as a whole and for each of us individually,” Savannah said at the top of the show. “We kind of had to say goodbye to my parents for a while, you know, for a little while, for the foreseeable future, and it was really, really, really hard, and I didn’t film any podcast since then. The podcast that’s going to air today, which you’re watching, was filmed before my life fell apart.”
She explained that the episode, which was taped on January 12, Julie’s birthday, did not reflect the turmoil currently going on in her personal life.
“It may seem carefree and, meanwhile, I think it’s because there was a lot of hope,” she said. “And I wasn’t faced with the reality of the situation. So I just wanted to throw that in there, to fix it, because I know a lot of people are going to be like, ‘Whoa, what the hell is that? ‘is? and it was a bit like the collapse of pre-life. And, now, the podcasts that I do in the future will be published.
Savannah said the very next episode will be a review of the other family members.
“Next week I will have a very intense one-on-one podcast with myself to take stock of my life, where things are, how are the kids, nanny, all of the above, so… and give an update on my parents,” she said. “Because you guys don’t have one yet, and I’m really, really looking forward to giving this update because I’ve seen God working in the craziest of circumstances.”
She also expressed her gratitude to those who stand by the reality TV family.
“Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for supporting me, my family and Unlocked,” said Savannah, who took custody of her 16-year-old brother, Grayson, and her 10-year-old niece, Chloe, who was raised by Todd and Julie.
Meanwhile, the couple have maintained their innocence and their lawyer has announced his intention to appeal.
