Savannah Chrisley had a ‘total breakdown’ amid her parents’ jail time
Savannah Crisley admitted that she recently had a “complete nervous breakdown” as her parents Todd and Julie Crisley went to jail.
On Tuesday episode of her Unlocked With Savannah Chrisley podcast., The 25-year-old said she had a hard time raising her brother Grayson, 16, and niece Chloe, 10.
“I had a complete breakdown last night,” she said. “I was trying to find the right clothes for Chloe to go visit my parents and find her hair. I just sat on the floor and started crying.”
“I am not my mother. How will I do it? I don’t feel worthy or capable of doing the job she’s done all her life,” the Chrisley Knows Best star added.
After getting emotional with her family’s new normal, Savannah said the words of encouragement from Chloe comforted her a bit.
“I was sitting there and the next day Chloe said, ‘You’re doing a good job. You cooked me ramen noodles last night,” she shared, adding that she plans to cook meals in the future.
Savannah said a recent conversation with her father Todd made her come to terms with the situation.
“I had a conversation with my father, and he said:“ This will be the most difficult, but the most rewarding thing you will ever do. I’m starting to get it,” she said on the podcast.
“It’s so crazy because I left the seat, sitting in the same chair, thinking about how angry I was with God: “Why did you let all this happen? One by one. Where are you?’ Now I am in a place of such peace,” she added.
Savannah said she hopes Chloe and Grayson find “peace and calmness” as well, adding that they need to find “healthier ways to deal with and deal with things.”
“I am not their mother. I am not their dad. I am their sister,” she explained. “I want to stay in this role of a sister. But it’s hard when you’re in the role of parent and discipline.”
In November, Chrisley was sentenced to 19 years in prison for fraud and tax evasion.
Todd, 53, served his 12-year sentence at Pensacola Federal Penitentiary last month, and Julie, 50, will spend the next seven years in two-and-a-half hours at Federal Correctional Facility and Federal Penitentiary Camp Marianne.
She will also serve 16 months of probation after her release from prison.
