Faye Chrisley, a seventy-three-year-old elderly woman who portrays Nanny on the American reality television show ‘Chrisley Knows Best,’ is an incredibly engaging character who, despite her advanced age, makes the most of her existence through her role. As a reality celebrity, Faye’s private life is public.
In celebration of the return of the show ‘Chrisley Knows Best’ this summer, let us take a look back at the legendary Nanny, Granny Faye’s journey thus far.
Who Is the Husband of Faye Chrisley?
Faye Chrisley’s spouse, Gene Chrisley, was nine years her senior, according to accounts. He served in the Korean Army throughout his adolescent years, as revealed by his son’s Instagram post. He captioned the photograph as follows:
“Found this today of my dad during his stint in the army, he was 16, I am proud of his sacrifices and will never take them lightly”
Gene Chrisley was 77 years old when he died (July 11, 2012). He expired at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta. His death had a profound effect on the Chrisley family. A glance through his grandchildren’s posts demonstrates how close they were to him.
For example, Chase Chrisley—Faye and Gene’s grandson—posted a flashback photo of the two on Instagram with the remark, ‘Miss you bubba.’
Faye Chrisley And Her Family: A Glimpse
Faye and her late husband reared two kids in Westminster, South Carolina: Todd Chrisley and Randy Chrisley.
Todd Chrisley was born in Georgia on 6 April 1969 and grew up in Westminster. He is a businessman and reality television celebrity best known for his role in Chrisley Knows Best, which premiered on March 11, 2014.
Todd has been married twice. He married Teresa Terry, his then-wife when he was just 21 years old and Teresa was 19 years old. Teresa was also pregnant with their oldest daughter, Lindsie Chrisley, at the time of their wedding.
They welcomed their son, Kyle Chrisley, shortly after beginning their marriage. However, their romance lasted only seven years, when Teresa divorced Todd in 1996 due to domestic abuse.
Todd was charged with domestic abuse against Teresa, according to MailOnline.
Although the relationship ended bitterly, Todd’s first marriage experience did not deter him from marrying again.
Todd became involved in a married relationship with Julie Chrisley in 1996, following his divorce from Teresa.
“In court documents seen by MailOnline, Chrisley is accused of waging a ‘campaign of mental and physical abuse,’ of ‘battering’ his ex-wife multiple times, once with ‘his closed fist’ after stripping her naked. In a string of allegations, all hotly contested by Chrisley, it is claimed that he wielded a knife and threatened to kill her and that, on one occasion, she witnessed him beating his own mother.”
Todd Chrisley has a negative net worth of around $5 million, indicating that he is in debt.
In April 2014, Todd had mortgages totaling more than $12 million, owed the IRS more than $500,000, and even had a $4.4 million loan from his former beauty queen wife, Julie.
His financial difficulties pushed him to such a low point that he was forced to evict his mother from her home. Although Todd claimed to be a millionaire on the show, he became crippled and unable to maintain his mother’s home.
Randy Chrisley is the younger son of Faye Chrisley, a low-profile celebrity in her own right. While the Chrisley family stays mum regarding Todd’s sibling, Randy, he allegedly has a son.
Randy was diagnosed with stage four cancer in 2014, according to Todd-
“Todd Chrisley and his family are saddened to announce that his younger brother, Randy, has been diagnosed with stage four cancer.”
Additionally, Faye has five grandkids, Savannah, Lindsie, Kyle, Chase, and Grayson, who appear with their parents in the American reality show.
The Ugly Truth Behind Every Smile
Behind the joyful smiles shared with the world by the loving granny, her childhood had been rather difficult. Even though the family appears to waste money and live a rich lifestyle now, Nanny Faye from The Chrisley Knows Best did not always live a lavish existence.
In one of the show’s episodes, Nanny Faye becomes enraged with three grandchildren for using their phones. While Grayson interrogates her about similar behavior, she admits how she did not have all of these parks growing up. She asserts-
“I think about how hard I had to work, milking cows every morning at 4:30 in the morning, and then going to feed the hogs and the chickens…Y’all couldn’t survive one week on what I had to do.”
As can be seen, she did not always have these advantages, and she is grateful for and appreciates everything she has now. It’s encouraging to see the 77-year-old living her best life and remaining happy.
Chrisley is the Best Returning This Summer 2021
Is the ‘Trouble Maker’ Making a Return This Summer? Granny Faye is a sweet grandmother. However, her social media presence enables us to see the best of her. Frequently, this results in difficulties for the 77-year-old.
She is unafraid to share photographs that we can only imagine teenagers sharing. However, she does so in a nice manner. Chase Chrisley, her grandson, recently shared a photo of his grandmother holding a cigar.
Though she looks gorgeous in her pink bonnet and pearl earrings, it’s unusual to see a 77-year-old woman having this much fun. As attractive as her aura is, she also appears to be humorous and wild. While sharing a photograph with her grandchildren, she included the following quote-
“Love these children. But I like them more when they go gambling with me”
We will soon see more mayhem captured on tape as Chrisley Knows Best returns this summer.
The program’s official website has updated information indicating that the show will return this summer, and fans are ecstatic.
