Todd Chrisley is so popular at his prison that he's 'like the president' of the place, his daughter says
- Todd Chrisley is "like the president" of the federal prison he is currently in, his daughter said.
- Savannah Chrisley added that her parents have made friends in prison.
Todd Chrisley is apparently "like the president" of the prison he's in, his daughter, Savannah Chrisley, told Nick Viall on Thursday's new episode of The Viall Files podcast.
When asked whether her parents have made friends in federal prison, Savannah Chrisley replied, "Oh, hell yeah."
"Dad is like, he likes to joke because even at visitation, I meet so many different people. It's hilarious. I come through visitation and they come through and they're like, clapping his hands. He's like, the president of this place," Savannah Chrisley said.
Todd, 54, and Julie, 50, were convicted of bank fraud and tax evasion last year and began their prison sentences in January. Todd is incarcerated at the Federal Prison Camp in Pensacola, Florida, and Julie is incarcerated at the Federal Medical Center in Lexington, Kentucky.
Savannah Chrisley said she has "100%" heard crazy stories from her parents since they're in federal prison.
"People don't really realize because people think where they're at is like 'Camp Cupcake,' you know? Just, 'let's go bunk around and fucking enjoy great food,' " she said, adding that their respective prisons are "considered like a camp, like the lowest possible you can be in, so it's like adult babysitting."
Most of the people in these prisons, she said, are non-violent offenders like lawyers and doctors — including the "Varsity Blues Guy," she said —but also "major drug lords" that have made their way down from higher security facilities.
But Savannah Chrisley has previously slammed the Chrisleys' prison conditions as a "nightmare," with "black mold, asbestos" and snakes "slithering on the floor" in Julie Chrisley's case.
Savannah Chrisley said gets to talk to each of her parents, who are in different prisons, "at least twice a day" and that she had already spoken to each of them on the day of the Viall Files recording.
She said they talk about "the same shit every day" and that they have to call her collect, so she can't call them back if she ever misses the call.
They typically talk about "whatever we have going on, whatever my plans are for the day, the BS that's going on there, the kids, checking on them," Savannah Chrisley added.
When asked whether her parents "vent" to her, she said that they "definitely put on a good face."
She continued: "But also in the midst of all of this, I've taken it as an opportunity to like, make a difference, be outspoken because I have a platform that can speak for people that may not be able to speak for themselves so there's a little bit of venting but for the most part it's like 'We're gonna put on a good face and we're gonna save the venting for like in person."
The Chrisleys may not be in prison for as long as they thought. This week, it was reported the convicted couple got their sentences reduced already for good behavior, and the family's lawyer told Insider he thinks they'll be out even sooner than that.
