In an episode of daughter サバンナクリスリー'NS Unlocked ポッドキャスト, recorded before Julie and husband トッド・クリスリー そうだった sentenced for committing financial crimes, 49歳 クリスリー・ノウズ・ベスト star shared how the fraud case has impacted her friendships.
サバンナ, 25, kicked off the chat by recalling how Julie had a more challenging time than Todd, 53, not hearing from loved ones. “Dad’s never been huge on friends because he’s always said that he’s got what he needs in all of us. His circle is very small,” Savannah explained.
しかし, she said to her mom, “I’ve watched you struggle with certain people that haven’t reached out to you — people that you’ve known for years, either since you were a child or 20 年, whatever it may be. To not reach out is pretty s—-y.”
Julie then suggested that “maybe people don’t know what to say.”
“Maybe they feel awkward. I don’t know what. 理由がわかりません. I can’t imagine,” 彼女は続けた. “I am just the type of person where if I am your friend, I am your friend. I am your friend whether we have $2 combined together or we’ve got millions, whether things are going great or whether our worlds are falling apart, whether our kids are great or whether they’ve lost their way. That’s just who I am.”
Added Julie, “I think some people, they feel maybe that by reaching out to me, they can tarnish themselves or make themselves look bad. Well listen, that’s on you because I know what I’ve done. さらに重要なことには, I know what I haven’t done.”
Reflecting on her own experience, Savannah said she’s “ありがたい” to those who have remained in her corner amid the chaos.
“I’ve always kept my friend group small. I’ve honestly had more people reach out that have shocked me than people that haven’t,” 彼女は言いました. “そのために, I’m grateful.”
Elsewhere in the podcast, Savannah opened up about the anger she has for the justice system and her family’s situation.
“Why do we continue to fail people? … It tears families apart,” 彼女は言いました. “Look at everything that we’re going through. How is that just? It’s not when you’ve got rapists and murderers and traffickers and all these people out here but yet, 何? They just get a slap on the wrist.”
“It all goes down to us being in the public eye and someone wanting to prove a point. And it’s honestly sad,” 彼女は続けた. “この時点で, のような気がする, 私のため, I’ve kinda become numb to it but that numbness has turned to anger, to where now, it’s just like I’m not giving up. There’s no other option.”
Savannah added that she had to turn her “hurt into anger in order to save me from falling into it.”
“It just fuels me and gives me the strength to keep moving instead of just sitting and sulking in it. Because if I sit and sulk in it, then it’s going to lead me down a road that I don’t need to be at,” 彼女は結論を下した. “そう, したがって, I’m going to use it as anger and motivation but that’s not the best either.”

In response to their sentencing, Alex Little of Burr & Forman LLP — the couple’s attorney — said the Chrisley family is remaining “楽観的” despite the sentencing.
He called the sentencing date “a difficult day for the Chrisley family,” 追加する, “But Todd and Julie are people of faith, and that faith gives them strength as they appeal their convictions. Their trial was marred by serious and repeated errors, including the government lying to jurors about what taxes the couple paid. Based on these issues, we are optimistic about the road ahead.”
