Lindsie Chrisley Worried About’ Chrisley Knows Best’ Show Affecting Her Parents’ In Prison
In a new episode of her “Southern Tea” podcast, Lindsie talked about prison reforms with Justin Paperny, a prison consultant. She also relayed her previous worries about their reality show affecting her parents in prison.
The 33-year-old began airing her fears saying, “There was a concern for me ahead of my parent’s report date. You know, you want to be strong and tell them everything will be fine. Even though you’re questioning if everything is going to be fine.”
She continued, “One of my biggest concerns was the access to televisions.” Before asking Paperny if he thought people who had seen their family show, “Chrisley Knows Best,” were serving time in these camps.”
She immediately replied, “And simply, I know the answer now. It’s yes.” With Paperny chiming in, “It’s a popular show.” However, despite her fear, Lindsie shared a favorable report on how her parents were treated.
“You know my parents were welcomed with opened arms, and I feel so blessed with that,” the actress explained. “Because I have heard of other people reporting and that not being the case. So I do feel like we’re blessed in that regard.”
The podcaster added that her dad was beginning to adjust to it and make new friends too. “His spirits are great,” she explained. “He is just embracing the process there and making the best of the process there with the people that are also there serving time with him. He’s made great friends. He talks about his friends there.”
She further updated the businessman’s well-being when she visited him, highlighting his appearance. She said, “I couldn’t stop telling him how great he looked. I said, ‘Even your hair looks better, a little bit longer and grayer.’ His nails aren’t completely bitten off.”
The mom of one has previously talked about visiting her parents and how it affected her son Jack, whom she shares with Will Campbell. As The Blast reported, the reality star admitted visiting her parents via a Q&A segment on her Instagram.
A curious fan had asked if she had seen her parents after their incarceration and whether she planned for her son to visit his grandparents too. She replied, “I have been able to visit. Everything is new for everyone, and adjustments take time.” “Jackson is in communication, and as far as visits are concerned until I’ve talked with Will, I don’t feel comfortable answering that yet.”
Another follower asked the Tv star, “How are you emotionally with your parents? Does Jackson ask lots of questions?” To which she replied, “Most kids ask a lot of questions. Some things are easier to explain than others. I’ve trusted myself and my ability to parent him – I might have navigated differently than someone else would have, but we all know our kids best.”
The ‘Southern Tea’ Podcaster Recalls Days Before Her Parent’s Bond Hearing
Shortly after the businessman and his wife reported to their prison camps, their first daughter reminisced on the days of their trial. Lindsie uploaded a reel on Instagram showing her all smiles while she had high hopes about her parent’s trial.
In the reel’s caption, the Tv personality admitted to having been hopeful for a positive outcome for her parents. She wrote, “Couldn’t have said it better myself. These photos were taken several days before my parents’ bond hearing, high hopes & living on a prayer. Not the outcome we wanted to hear, but God had other plans.”
Lindsie used her family’s reality to emphasize the challenges of life. She penned, “Funny how life can change in a blink of an eye. Everything can look picture-perfect on social media, but behind all the smiles are different circumstances we all face. Proof that you never know what someone is struggling through.”
The podcast host included the lessons she had learned from her family’s plight. She says, “A messy life isn’t something the perfect plan will fix or your next purchase will solve. It’s just life. It’s shabby for all of us.
“Yes, you could probably be a little more organized, but still, your life will be messy. Maybe all you need to do is stop telling yourself it should be flawless. Maybe all you need to do is stop hoping for something no one has.”
