During her show, Grace tried to insinuate that Todd and his family receive welfare benefits. When a reporter on the phone tried to speak up to explain to her that she was incorrect, and that a story had been released about his granddaughters Mom doing so, they were shot down and overpowered by Grace. Grace also took to Twitter to issue a tweet, saying, “Multi-millionaire reality star of #ChrisleyKnowsBest lives a life of luxury- but could his family be receiving welfare?”and said on the episode that, “We learn.. his family on welfare,” which is a blatant lie.
Again, to reiterate what we said above, Todd’s Granddaughter’s Mother, Angela Johnson, was actually the one who had been arrested for medicare fraud, and through research we were able to confirm this had absolutely nothing to do with Todd or his family.
When asked about this part, Todd exclusively told us, “We love Chloe’s mother Angela. We stand by her. And we hope that whatever situation she is involved in will be dealt with quickly, so that she can get on with her life.”
After Grace’s inflammatory insinuation, where she said, “Known as patriarch of perfection. He’s made a living off his ostentatious lifestyle in the lap of luxury. As millions watching week after week. But tonight is his family actually receiving welfare?” Todd’s son, Chase, took to social media immediately to refute the claims, tweeting, “nobody in our family is, you must be really desperate for ratings..”
In addition, Todd also tweeted that “you have to pray for this woman, she’s a bitter soul.” He also took time to point out Grace’s lack of credibility, posting a Wikipedia screenshot showing that she had been accused in 2006 of embellishing the story of her fiance’s 1979 murder in her book Objection!. This article was in The New York Observer and written by Rebecca Dana. In the article, Dana specifically said sources “contradict Ms. Grace when it comes to other salient facts of the crime and trial.” In another article of the same vein in March of 2007 in Rolling Stone, Keith Olbermann stated, ““Anybody who would embellish the story of their own fiancé’s murder should spend that hour a day not on television but in a psychiatrist’s chair.”
To this, Todd commented that, “Shocking that @NancyGraceHLN was accused of embellishing a story, Worry less about my money & more about my ratings.”
Grace also was involved in the past in a suicide scandal, where a guest named Melinda Duckett committed suicide after an interview with Grace. Duckett’s Grandfather had gone on record at the time with The Orlando Sentinel to say, “Nancy Grace and the others, they just bashed her to the end. She was not one anyone ever would have thought of to do something like this,” insinuating that Grace- and other media- scrutinizing Duckett had led her to kill herself. Grace ended up in litigation over this and ended up having to create a $200,000 trust fund to find Duckett’s son, who had been missing.
Through extensive research, we have learned exclusively that the Chrisley family is planning on taking legal action against Grace for her slanderous and flat out lies via her claim that they are on welfare benefits. The family, we have learned, has retained Marty Singer, who is one of the most powerful Hollywood and Entertainment lawyers in the business.
When asked about Grace’s off-collar claims, Todd told us that, “I grew up in a middle class family with a Mother who worked 12-14 hour days to support her family. We never received a dime from any form of Government subsidy.”
“I also have five children,” Todd continued, “and never in my 48 years have I ever received a dime for them from the government either.”
Grace’s show hasn’t been doing well, with a recent episode on May 2nd where she flat out lied about the Chrisley family only garnering 54,000 views in the P18-49 demographic and 60,000 in the P25-P54 demographic. It was beat by multiple episodes of Forensic Files, just to give you a basis for comparison. Meanwhile, the ratings of Chrisley Knows Best continue to be in the millions.
Could this have been a ploy for ratings by Grace, then?
To that front, Todd added that, “For Nancy Grace to insinuate something like that and use Chrisley Knows Best and the Chrisley name/notoriety to try to lift her show from it’s lackluster ratings will not be tolerated.”
From this point forward, Todd noted that, “We will let our attorney handle it from here.”
This definitely sounds like it is shaping up to be an interesting case, and we know that the Chrisley’s will come out victorious.
