The “Dance Moms” star revealed that she had reached out to Todd multiple times on social media prior to his prison sentencing; however, he rarely ever replied.

But, when he finally did respond to her messages, Miller admits she found something “odd” about him.

"I used to DM him all the time, and he never responded. Never responded," she told The U.S. Sun. “Then, all of a sudden, I get this big, long email saying, 'I didn't know people could send me messages. I never looked at these DMs. I didn't even know what this is about. I'm so sorry I never got back to you.'”

She revealed that he wass “always going on about financial institutions and people that were coming after him, his local government - always talking about that, which I found odd."

Todd and Julie were indicted by a Georgia grand jury in 2019. When all of this started to boil up and eventually spill over, Miller thought to herself, “something is up because if the government's investigating you, you don't know it.”

“When I was indicted by the U.S. government, it came as a complete whoosh, smack in the face,” Miller admitted. “I had no clue that I had done anything wrong. And I say that I still don't."

The reality TV star explained that her serving time was all because she was maybe going to “walk away from a vacation home in Florida after the 2008 crash,” when her mortgage rates kept increasing.

Miller believes prison life will be a cake walk for Julie, but not so much for Todd.

"Todd is not going to be able to handle, you know, the soap and the cheap generic shampoo and conditioner and the food because he's a little posh. [But] Julie, she'll be just fine,” she told the outlet.

Their daughter, Savannah Chrisley, gave fans an update one week after they reported to their respective institutions.
