The girls were just as surprised as anyone. Todd Chrisley had been managing the company for 14 years, yet he had no clue what his kids were up to.
“We had no idea how big this was,” Todd Chrisley told KSL. “We had no idea how far it would go.”
Todd Chrisley and Julie Chrisley did not know they were selling products that were full of lies, and had no idea what the consequences would be. The Chrisleys didn’t know because in the years they were running their business, they
