Chase Chrisley has officially broken his silence.

No cryptic social media posts, no questionable comments, just straight-up acknowledgment about his family’s situation.

Chase appeared on his sister, Savannah Chrisley’s, recent “Unlocked” podcast episode and opened up about Todd and Julie Chrisley’s upcoming imprisonment.

The podcast started out with some fun banter between the siblings, who are one year apart.

The conversation then took a turn.

Savannah called out Chase for being in a “weird place” with her, to which he denied.

“You’ve been in a very weird place. You’re not friendly,” she told her brother.

“I haven’t had an issue with you, don’t have an issue with you. I’m just not gonna let someone be mean,” he rebutted.

Chase Chrisley Has “DEPTH”

“We’ve both been in weird places with everything we got going on in our lives,” Savannah added and Chase agreed.

Chase admitted he didn’t feel the need to address it until now.

“I don’t owe the public an explanation,” he told his sister. “I don’t need to explain how I feel to anybody, other than the people that I care about and I love. Obviously, what we have been going through is hell, it is a terrible, terrible situation, but I have to try and find the good, even in the darkest time.”

Savannah and Lindsie Chrisley have both been outspoken about their parents’ prison fate, but Chase felt the need to stay private the sake of his parents and fiancée, Emmy Medders.

The 26-year-old continued, “I feel like throughout everything that we have been going through, it has made me appreciate things I did not appreciate as much in the past. It’s made me do a lot of reflecting and figure out who I am as a man and who I wanna be in 10 years, and then 10 years from there and 10 years from there.”

“I think … I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m not going to worry about what everybody else [in] the world is thinking and saying about me,” the reality TV personality said. “I have to make sure that I’m good, so that I can be good for Emmy. I have to make sure my family is good emotionally and that I am in a [good] place emotionally so I can be there for my loved ones. That’s why I haven’t really said anything on Instagram. I feel like I’ve been doing the work behind the scenes, and I feel like that will pay off and let the work speak for itself.”

Chase hinted that he feels something has been “unexpectedly taken” from him. He shared a short story titled, “Make the Chili,” to his Instagram Story on Monday, November 28th.

The story details a man encouraging his friend to make his wife chili, because you never know if you’ll have the opportunity again.

It reads, “A good friend of mine unexpectedly lost his wife. A couple months later we were golfing together, chatting about nothing. He asked what my dinner plans were and I told him wifey wanted my homemade chili and cornbread, but I didn’t feel like stopping at the store. We golfed a few more minutes when he quietly said, ‘Make the chili.’ It took me a few minutes to realize we were no longer talking about dinner. It was about going out of your way to do something for someone you love because at any moment, they could unexpectedly be taken from you.”

The short story concluded, “Next time someone you love wants you to go for a walk or watch a football game or play a board game or just put your phone down and give them your undivided attention, just do it. ‘Make the chili.’”

This is the first time Chase has seemingly “spoken out” about his feelings following Todd and Julie’s sentencing.
