Todd Chrisley is baring it all before heading behind bars!
The entrepreneur got into some financial trouble with the law two years ago when he was charged with bank fraud, intent to defraud the United States and banks, and tax fraud.
Unfortunately, he was not the only one that got caught; his wife Julie was also charged with obstruction of justice and conspiracy to defraud by creating a fake credit report.
Sentenced to prison in Florida on the 17th of January, the patriarch of the famous family disclosed that he was ready to tell it all in an interview before serving time.
Todd Chrisley Ready For Candid Revelations Before Heading To Prison
Since they were convicted, the close-knit household’s emotions have been high. Making one last appearance on the family’s podcast, “Chrisley Confessions,” the 53-year-old was joined by his son Chase.
The father-son duo talked about several things ranging from: how they spent the holidays, the amount of stalking they were all going through following the court case, how emotional his father got after receiving a text from his son, as well as details on his ex-business partner.
While talking about the sentence, he emphasized that he was innocent and would continue to stand by his truth. The media personality let his listeners know that they had been dealing with the ramifications of Mark Bradick, who had embezzled them and stolen everything they had since 2010.
He noted how hard the situation was on him to the point that he fell on his knees in tears after a text from Chase encouraged him to “live in faith, not fear.” The podcaster told a story about his experience with a paparazzi who sold pictures of him eating lunch with a friend after the news of the sentence came out.
He spoke on the lack of integrity of the media and federal agents who would share personal financial statements with third parties. They also got into the allegations of him being gay and involved in a sexual relationship with his ex-partner, who they called a “documented thief and liar.” They got into everything like Todd promised they would, and it was piping hot!
Fans will recall that Todd had announced his appearance on the show, which he seemed eager to do. The reality TV star said he was looking forward to answering his son’s hard questions and that nothing was off limits.
He noted that he trusted his 26-year-old as capable enough to handle the task of an interviewer, adding, “You can ask me anything. I am your daddy.” The star also said that the interview would be set up as a Q&A where fans’ questions would be included and that nothing was uncomfortable because they knew the truth.
Seeing as he has less than two weeks to be imprisoned, The Blast shared some details concerning the type of treatment the TV personality would be getting. The first is that it would come in the form of the military style and would trade his posh things for steel-toed boots, green shirts and trousers, and an articulate look at all times.
According to Page Six, the former “Chrisley Knows Best” star’s schedule would begin from 4:45 am to light out at 10:30 pm. He would have breakfast around 5 and 6 am, inspections of his surroundings, and work, which would be assigned according to the needs of the prison and his educational and physical condition. Only five adult visitors at a time can visit him, including minimal physical contact.
Todd Chrisley Prepares For Prison Life With Large Meal
Taking on the life of a prisoner is no joke, especially from a life of luxury like the media personality. The Blast reported that the threat of the limited meal options behind bars prompted him to skip off his health wagon to indulge a bit.
The Nutrisystem partner headed out with his daughter’s ex-fiancé, Nic Kerdiles, enjoying some good old Tennessee bar-b-que at Green Hills Grille in Nashville. They accompanied the proteins with a spinach artichoke appetizer dish and had rib rolls for their main dish.
Eyewitnesses noted that the pair learned in really close in what looked like an intense conversation.
