Todd Chrisley is ready for his close-up.
While awaiting to report to prison along with wife Julie on January 17 to begin serving a sentence for bank fraud and tax evasion, the Chrisley Knows Best star just revealed that he will be giving one, and only one, sit-down interview. The honor will reportedly be going to his son, Chase Chrisley.
On the latest episode of his podcast, Chrisley Confessions, Todd spoke with Chase regarding the interview and claims he will answer “all the hard questions.”
“I am looking forward to that interview, not because it’s going to be a softball interview,” he told Chase. “You have said, ‘Am I allowed to ask all of the hard questions?’ And I said, ‘You can ask me anything. I am your daddy.'”
Todd claims he’s ready and willing to be transparent and that “nothing will be off limits” as Chase is more than “capable” of conducting the interview.
“You are going to be doing this interview with me next week,” Told stated. “Nothing is off-limits. It’s a no holds bar interview.”
Todd elaborated, saying that he finds no discomfort in revealing his truth.
“It’s not uncomfortable for us because we know the truth,” he said. “Other people that want to interview [me] might say, ‘I know this is probably an uncomfortable question’ — no, we’re good with the truth. The truth is not uncomfortable for us.”
Later in the podcast, Todd also carved out some time to speak on the seemingly neverending rumors that he is gay and had a year-long extramarital affair with the family’s former business associate, Mark Braddock.
Mark gave the State evidence on Todd and Julie and helped the prosecution secure a guilty verdict regarding the Chrisleys’ crimes. He also claims he gave money to Todd to pay off an anonymous blackmailer who threatened to expose their affair.
However, what Todd finds most upsetting about the accusations is that of all the partners he could be sexually associated with, people chose Mark, calling him a “toad” and “someone who looked like a thumb.”
“What insulted me the most is that, out of all these 54 years, for me to finally be accused of being with a man, it would be someone who looked like Mark Braddock,” Todd said.
The Chrisley Knows Best patriarch further explained to Chase, “Let me you tell something. I could understand if you’d have had sex with me, it would [make] you crazy. I get that. There have been many who have been d–k-notized by your daddy.”
Todd continued by claiming, “That is the one thing that is the most insulting. To say that I couldn’t pull something better than that … there’s better to be had by Todd Chrisley than that.”
Todd’s exclusive interview with Chase is reportedly set to take place sometime in the next week or so, right before Todd and Julie report to their Florida state prisons, where Todd will serve 12 years and Julie will serve seven years, respectfully.
