Though both Todd and Julie Chrisley are continuing to film the USA Network show ‘Chrisley Knows Best’, all is not well between the couple.

A production source for the USA Network has disclosed to

“Things are very different between the two of them when the cameras are not rolling. It’s like night and day.”

The source also added that the bedtime scenes of the couple are ‘scripted’, due to the obvious lack of real affection between them.

He also said:

“They are actually shot back-to-back with several outfit changes. No one goes to bed in full hair and make-up.”

Their strained relations have reached a level that the couple cannot see eye-to-eye with each other. It has also been known that in spite of all the marital discord, Julie is not keen on ending this second marriage.

The insider also explained that both Todd and Julie need each other to give that perfect family image and would not split at least for now.

The family life and reality show of the couple

Amidst all these troubles, the couple with their family is doing the reality show ‘Chrisley Knows Best’. Though they seem to portray a very lavish lifestyle and a loving family, the actual things are contrary to that picture, it is said. There are a number of marital problems ongoing and which they need to address.

There was also a rumor around 4 months back that Todd Chrisley is gay. Their daughter Savannah is now dating basketball star, Luke Kennard.

Todd Chrisley seems to be quite happy about this new relationship in his daughter’s life. In an exclusive interview given to E! News, the father has revealed the secret of how Savannah met her new boyfriend Luke.

His son Kyle from his first marriage did not seem to share a very good relationship with his father and had also admitted to the court that his father had dodged paying the taxes. His elder daughter Lindsie has one child Jackson, but she has separated from her husband.

Hope the family can get together the loose strings in their life and weave it in the right direction!
