Former ‘Chrisley Knows Best’ Star Todd Chrisley Is Reportedly “Very Upset” About Spending Upcoming Holiday Season Behind Bars

“…no desire to spend the holiday season in the slammer.”

Todd Chrisley is preparing to spend his first holiday season behind bars and he isn’t very happy about it. 

Todd’s attorney, Jay Surgent, told TMZ Todd is “very upset about his situation,” which will see the former Chrisley Knows Best star breaking bread with his fellow inmates instead of his family.

As fans know, both Todd and his wife Julie Chrisley will be absent from the Thanksgiving dinner table this year after the couple were sentenced to prison– 12 and seven years, respectively– for tax evasion and fraud crimes. (The couple recently had their sentences reduced– 2 years off for Todd and one year off Julie.)

“Well, I guess y’all can figure out what we’re NOT thankful for this year.”

 While Todd won’t be able to feast on a homemade Chrisley dinner Thursday, he will reportedly be treated to a special Thanksgiving spread, courtesy of FPC Pensacola in Florida, where he is serving his prison sentence. 

Raise your hand if you already know that pokey turkey is gonna be dry as hell…

Todd and Julie can also look forward to getting a visit from their daughter Savannah Chrisley at some point this holiday season, though with Todd being in Florida and Julie serving her time in Kentucky, Savannah will presumably have to coordinate a visiting plan going into Thanksgiving and Christmas. 

The 26-year-old revealed Monday on social media that she and her family-– including younger siblings Greyson and Chloe, whom she became the legal guardian of after Todd and Julie were sentenced to prison in November-– will be celebrating “a little different this year.”  

“ … I wasn’t going to fake it,” she said. 

Though Todd and Julie won’t be home for Thanksgiving (or Christmas), Todd’s attorney claims they are still exploring legal strategies that would get the couple home sooner than originally planned. Todd currently has a court date in March where his legal team will attempt to reverse his conviction. 

Savannah spoke about the recent update on her parents’ appeals this week on her podcast, claiming she was “sobbing” upon hearing the good news. 

“ … I got a call this morning and the appeals court has granted our oral arguments,” she said, according to Us Weekly. “I was literally sobbing. It is one step closer to getting mom and dad home. The kids are freaking out. I’m freaking out … it’s just amazing.

“Only about 6 percent of cases that are submitted for oral arguments get accepted,” she continued. “So this is huge news. We get to go and argue why mom and dad should be home. God is good. Thanksgiving win!”

  1. These fuckers have made some very valid complaints about the inhumane conditions in many prisons in their endless press releases. No one should have to live in an environment covered in mold, for example.

    But they never even pretend to care that this is unacceptable for *all* incarcerated individuals, just that it’s horrible for *them*.

    If they do as much (little) as put out a statement suggesting that this is an issue of which they were unaware before they themselves experienced it, but, now that they are, they look forward to advocating for reform both during their own time and after their release, I *might* have some respect for them/their busy PR reps.

    Instead, all I hear is, “We are more specialer than all these dirty rotten scoundrels and should be treated better than these *criminals*. Waaah waaah waaah.”

    They have learned absolutely nothing and continue to display the same sense of arrogance and entitlement that led them to choose to commit crimes in the first place. If they don’t gain some perspective soon, the only lesson they’re going to learn from being incarcerated is, “Gotta do better not to get caught next time.”

    (I couldn’t care less what they are or aren’t getting for Thanksgiving. Are *all* of the people with whom they’re incarcerated–particularly those who lack the financial and familial resources to supplement their provisions with costly commissary– getting adequate daily nutrition? Beyond that, the only thing that bears comment here is recognizing the immense privilege they have, even while incarcerated, to have family that can afford to visit them when they’re housed far away from their family and each other. Yet, they’re still using the significant platform they have to whinge about how awful it is for *them* rather than highlighting how much worse it is for nearly every other incarcerated person and the people who care about them).

    Until these fuckwits show they have a sense of anything or anyone beyond themselves, I’ma need them to stfu and stop showing themselves in public, because, right now, they seem to be trying to fight the Duggars for the role of ‘Most unaware and hypocritical privileged people who really don’t get it.”

    They really need to pull themselves out of the public sphere for at least the next year and not say another thing until they can show they understand this ain’t all about them. If they develop some empathy and start sharing how they want to use their privilege to effect systemic change, I might care about what they have to say. Until that day comes, I’d rather amplify the voice of almost anyone else who is incarcerated and has something to say about improving the system and not just their own place in it.

    1. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone on this site is now dumber for having read it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

  2. Boo freaking hoo! Get used to it Toddy, there will be a lot more holidays behind bars for your grifting ass. If you can’t be with the ones you love, honey, love the ones you’re with.
