Nanny Faye Chrisley has been looking to a higher power amid her son, Todd Chrisley’s prison sentence. He and his wife, Julie Chrisley have been incarcerated since January. It has not been easy on their children and very rough on Faye, who had battled and beat bladder cancer. So, how is the true matriarch making it through these rough times? Read on for more details.
Nanny Faye Looking To ‘God’ Amid Todd’s Prison Sentence
It has been a rough three months since Todd and Julie Chrisley went to prison for tax fraud. He will serve twelve years while she is serving seven. That being said, they left behind their three children together, Savannah, Grayson, and Chase. Plus, Todd’s children from his first marriage, Kyle and Lindsie as well, and Kyle’s daughter, Chloe who they’ve raised. Finally, Todd’s mother, Nanny Faye has always been an integral part of the family. She is a fan favorite on Chrisley Knows Best and is known for her gambling and her antics.
Faye has no problem speaking her mind but had battled bladder cancer which broke everyone’s hearts. She credited her daughter-in-law Julie for helping her come out on the other side. Now, with Julie and Todd away, how is Faye holding up? According to People, Nanny Faye opened up on her granddaughter, Lindsie Chrisley’s podcast, The Southern Tea. “My heart is broke. I don’t know that I have been this broken in many days, but I have to ask God to give me strength and courage to get through it because not everybody is treated [with] justice, not everything is fair,” Faye revealed.
The 79-year-old added: “But you know what we have to get up, I tell you children, we have to get up and be like the tree planted by the water. We shall not be moved. Let people see that we’re really the people that we are. Get up, do the right thing. Be kind and let God take over.” Nanny Faye maintained that she will keep on a strong face because she is the mother and grandmother. More so, she knows that she is a good person and that is what matters the most.
Lindsie Doesn’t Know Best
Though she had a candid conversation with Nanny Faye, Lindsie Chrisley admitted she has yet to see Julie. Fortunately, her sister Savannah and grandmother have and said she is doing well. However, Lindsie has submitted her paperwork and is just waiting on approval. Apparently, it is much harder to get through to where Julie is than to where Todd is spending his days. At least they all have each other to lean on.
