‘Chrisley Knows Best’ Stars Appreciate Success But Focus Is Family


Now in its fourth season, Chrisley Knows Best spotlights the real life adventures (and misadventures) of the Chrisleys, a loving Atlanta based family that are not afraid to speak candidly with each other. I had the pleasure of interviewing members of the Chrisley family during a recent NBC/Universal press day, and Julie and Savannah Chrisley offered a few insights on the show’s success.

For Savannah Chrisley, part of her journey on the program is to continue to explore new avenues and also connect with fans of the show:

“I love communicating with people. I love just kind of putting myself out there and seeing the responses I get from people. I went from long hair to chopping my hair off. Next I may have a pixie cut, who knows? For me, it’s just been fun – it gives me a lot of energy. It brings us all closer together.” Savannah Chrisley

Julie Chrisley has a longview perspective of Chrisley Knows Best, as she talks about why, when all is said and done, the most important aspect is to keep the family together.

“As the mom, my goal has always been for my children to know that this is a huge opportunity (and to) use it for that. Use it to be positive, to make a positive on yourself and someone else. But to also understand it’s short-lived. There’ll be another family to come along and at the end of the day, we are a family after all this is gone. It’s important to maintain our relationships (and) not let those relationships become convoluted just because (Savannah) almost has a million Instagram followers or because she has people telling her how beautiful she is on social media. But to know what’s real and what’s important. At the end of the day (when) the cameras are gone and your million followers are no longer there – it’s still us. It’s about us – it’s about our family.”Julie Chrisley
