Savannah and Lindsie Chrisley slam Dad Todd’s part in family estrangement

When Chrisley Knows Best premiered in 2014, the show featured famed real estate developer Todd Chrisley and his wife Julie along with their five children Kyle, Lindsie, Savannah, Chase and Grayson. However, the seemingly happy reality TV family had a falling out in 2017, which led to Lindsie leaving the popular show. According to Radar Online, Lindsie (Todd’s eldest daughter from a previous relationship) was unhappy with the inclusion of her failed marriage to Will Campbell on the family show. “Todd used Lindsie’s grief for a story and didn’t care how she felt about it,” a source claimed. “He did what he wanted and it ended up ruining his relationship with his daughter.”

And although Lindsie hasn’t returned to the series without a script, she has reconciled with her father. In a July 2022 episode of her podcast, The Southern Tea, Lindsie revealed that she had repaired her relationship with Todd after deciding to end their marriage. Now Lindsie is opening up about her estrangement from her family and criticizing her father for his role in the messy argument.

Savannah and Lindsie Chrisley blame their father

On October 13, Lindsie Chrisley and her sister Savannah sat down with Todd Chrisley and Julie Chrisley to discuss their family crisis. During the conversation, Todd emphasized that he was grateful for the family’s estrangement and admitted that he was once an overbearing father. “I didn’t know how to function without talking to all of you 100 times a day every day of my life and knowing every move you guys are making,” he shared on his Chrisley Confessions podcast.

Now, Savannah and Lindsie have a separate conversation about the family’s estrangement and blame their father. “I feel like when I left to go to college, I really felt like I was the favorite kid. And then a shift changed,” Lindsie said during an appearance on Unlocked with Savannah Chrisley. Lindsie went on to explain that returning from college made her feel ostracized by her family. “None of that matters to me now at 33 because I know who I am,” she added. “So that doesn’t mean if he, and by ‘he’ I mean Todd Chrisley … is making out with you.”

Savannah didn’t dispute her sister’s claims, but she did provide some context for Todd’s past actions. “It was a different time growing up dad, emotions weren’t important,” Savannah said, noting that Todd has recently been working to fix his parenting style.
