New episodes of Chrisley Knows Best , now in its fourth season, begins Tuesday, August 23 with back-to-back episodes (USA Network). The season received an extension to bring this season up to a total of 26 episodes, and the show has also been renewed for season five, which airs in 2017.
Happy Mother’s Day to everyone, and since I’ve been blessed with a strict and extremely loving mother, I wanted to share some insight from Julie Chrisley, the matriarch behind the USA’s Chrisley Knows Best.
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.
The second season of USA’s reality series Chrisley Knows Best premieres Tuesday, October 14 (10 pm et/pt), and fans of the show obviously know patriarch Todd Chrisley is a disciplinarian when it comes to raising his children. Amidst Todd’s colorful witticisms (“crazy runs deep!” is his signature comment) lies his dedication to raising a moral, respectful, and responsible family with his wife Julie.
During the interviews for Chrisley Knows Best, Todd Chrisley says his stern but loving approach to parenting stems from experience.
“I do think the family dynamic has changed. Fortunately for me, I only know how to parent one way and that was the way I was parented – so that was 46 years ago. That’s how we parent and we want to make sure that our children are having the same values instilled in them that were instilled in us.”
I also asked Todd Chrisley about the joys of parenting, and he gave a pretty straightforward and touching answer (his kids Chase, Savannah, and wife Julie are also in the video). Check out the clip below for Todd’s answer:
