Family reality TV series seem to be the current trend in reality TV. From keeping up with the Kardashians to Mark Wahlberg’s Wahlburgers, reality TV is filled with shows that focus on the day-to-day life and affluent lifestyle of rich families. Chrisley Knows Best is just one of the series, that has somehow managed to make an impression amongst fans. Airing on the USA Network, the series follows the adventures and misadventures of the Chrisley household. The series began airing on the 11th of March 2014 and recently wrapped up its 8th season. In this article, we will take a sneak peek at the Chrisley Family Tree.
The paternal figure in the Chrisley household, Michael Todd Chrisley or Todd Chrisley for short, is a real-estate tycoon. He rose to fame following his massive investment and profit in real estate. When Todd is not busy closing down deals, he is busy with his family, who do not think the best about him. A germaphobe, Todd is often described as controlling, easily irritated, and often unreasonable. While Todd is currently married to Julie Chrisley, he was previously married to his high school girlfriend Teresa Terry. The pair had two children, Kyle Chrisley and Lindise Chrisley.
The second wife of Todd Chrisley and the maternal figure in the Chrisley household, Julie Chrisley is known for her marriage to Todd. A huge fan of food, Julie is quite good at the kitchen and loves to cook. Like Todd, Julie was previously married to her high school boyfriend. Following her marriage to Todd, Julie has given birth to three children, Chase, Savannah, and Grayson.
The first of Todd’s children, Kyle was born to Todd and his ex-wife, Teresa. As a young kid, Kyle went down the wrong path and struggled with drugs throughout his life. Back in 2019, Kyle attempted suicide but was saved by his family. Following the suicide attempt, Kyle has reconciled with his father and the pair are coming to terms with their relationship. Kyle was previously married to Angela Victoria Johnson and the pair had a daughter, Chloe Chrisley. But as both Angela and Kyle struggled with drugs, Chloe is being raised by her grandparents. Kyle now lives with his girlfriend Alexus Whilby.
The second of Todd’s children with Teresa, Lindise Chrisley doesn’t share the best of relationships with her parents. Lindsie married Will Campbell in 2012, without getting blessings from her father. While Todd eventually came around, Lindise and Will could not keep their marriage afloat and divorced in 2016. The pair have a son Jackson, who currently lives with Lindsie.
The youngest of Todd’s children, Chase, Savannah, and Grayson are still trying to find their way around the world. While Chase is often seen being involved in get-rich-quick schemes, his sister Savannah has just graduated college. Chase is in a relationship with Kayla Puzas but the pair are yet to tie the knot. On the other hand, his sister is engaged to Nic Kerdiles. Even though the pair were due to get married in 2019, they decided to scale things back a bit. The youngest of the lot is Grayson Chrisley who gets away with just about anything due to his sweet demeanor.
Todd Chrisley’s mother and grandmother to his children, Faye Chrisley is the happy-go-lucky character of the family. She loves to drink and is irritated by Todd’s interference with her plans, which he does mostly to keep Faye out of trouble.
