Savannah Chrisley‘s Instagram update was less than 30 minutes old before bringing in the eyebrow-raising today. The 22-year-old reality star – herself fresh from Botox and plastic surgery allegations – updated her account on Tuesday morning with a power workout session. Savannah, whose “Chrisley Knows Best” family show is gearing up for a new series, dropped two sweat-drenched boxing videos seeing her both push herself with a trainer and, via a very lengthy caption, address her body-image issues and former 110-pound weight at 5’8”.
Scroll for the videos, plus the response.
Savannah’s videos showed her dripping sweat and looking straight-up ripped as she boxed her way through her morning sweat session. The Georgia-born star wore skintight black leggings and a light Nike sports bra – space between the two showed off Savannah’s insane abs, with the star’s glistening body appearing to glide through the box-a-thon with ease.
A caption admitting to prior weight and exercise obsession went down the self-love route. Savannah admitted she was once focused “on the number that the scale shows,” adding that “I have always struggled” as she addressed her looks. More after the video.
Also stating that fans should “focus” on fueling their bodies with “healthy nutrients” – the blonde fronts popular weight-loss brand South Beach Diet – Savannah added that “love, laughter, and…some ice-cream” were all important. The response proved mixed from the start as comments supporting Savannah’s raw reveal came amid those slamming the star for a seeming social distancing fail.
“He can get sick from you because you are not wearing a mask,” one user wrote. “Where is ur MASK?” another added. COVID-19 hits home for Savannah. April saw 52-year-old dad Todd “the sickest I’ve ever been” as he was hospitalized with the novel coronavirus. Scroll for Todd’s COVID reveal.
A fan replying to one of the mask comments wrote: “Exactly what I was thinking…Social distancing or a mask are the rules to keep everyone healthy.”
Late April saw real estate mogul dad Todd in the hospital with a 100-103-degree fever. Speaking on the family’s “Chrisley Confessions” podcast, Todd stated he was “the sickest” he’s ever been. Savannah was later slammed for a social distancing fail as she hung out on a beach with 2018-engaged beau Nic Kerdiles, plus two other couples. The response today was, however, also positive, bringing out those who have struggled with their own body image. More below.
One fan thanked Savannah on behalf of their teenage daughter, writing: “Yes y’all do!! My 16 year old daughter struggles with her body image as well!! Keep up the positive messages!! Thank you!!”
Meanwhile, another added: “This has been a struggle for me from 5yrs of age. @savannahchrisley.” The star who just this week was begged to stop with the alleged Botox and told she was “beautiful before” seemed to have her 2.1 million followers in awe of both her body and her inner strength. But when it came to those masks in a pandemic now seeing nearly 3 million U.S. citizens testing COVID-19-positive, it was the thumbs-down.
