Todd's Prison Lifestyle Is A Far Cry From His "Chrisley Knows Best" Days

Page Six reports his day-to-day schedule will involve waking up around 4:45 AM and eating breakfast between 5 and 6 AM.

Before heading off to his work assignment, Chrisley must make his bed military style and clean his room in preparation for daily inspections.

He will then proceed to his work assignment for the day depending on needs for the prison and inmate factors such as education level and physical condition.

Per the documents obtained by PS, some of these jobs include cooks, bakers, dishwashers, electricians, roofers, plumbers, clerks, librarians, teacher aides, tailors and sanitation workers.

He will work until 5 PM and is required to be in bed by 10:30 PM.


Lucky for Chrisley, he will be allowed coffee and visiting hours on the weekends. He is only allowed five adult visitors at one time, and his adopted daughter Chloe will have to be accompanied by an approved adult.

Chrisley will be allowed minimal contact with his visitors.

He’s permitted to share a short embrace, kiss and hold hands, but no other physical contact is allowed.

Chrisley has also promised a “tell-all” interview with his son, Chase Chrisley, on their “Chrisley Confessions” podcast.

“You’re actually going to be doing an interview of me next week, where you’re going to be asking me all of the hard questions, because folks, I have been asked by every media outlet out here to give an interview,” Chrisley explained.

Later in the episode, the reality TV star explained his decision to let his son conduct the interview.

“I thought, ‘You know what, I’m not giving someone else the opportunity to interview me when I have a son that is as capable as any talk show host out there to sit down and talk to me about who Todd Chrisley really is,’” he admitted. “The media has gone to such a left-ist mentality that they want to control the narrative. They want to make the narrative fit their box.”

He warned everyone to “be careful of the pain that you pray and wish for on other people,” because “what you put out there comes back to you.”
