About Todd Chrisley
Todd Chrisley is an American TV personality from Atlanta, USA. Chrisley is best known for his self-made millionaire legacy from real estate and owned a company called ‘Chrisley Asset Management.’ Though, since the economic collapse in 2008, like many companies in the property market, many business owners had suffered desperate losses.
Consequently, Chrisley suffered bankruptcy as a result of the collapse in 2008 and soon owed millions of dollars. He is now estimated to be worth a total of $5 which is quite the contrast compared to the height of his career when he was claimed to be worth over $50 million.
Tax evasion and bank fraud…
Since this event occurred, Chrisley remained positive and introduced his new idea to launch a TV entertainment show, which helped him recover from his financial loss. During the economic crash scandal, there were investigations made into private investors in the property market.
Unfortunately for Chrisley and other property investors, he was targeted for tax evasion and bank fraud charges. Investigations are still pending and have not yet been settled for several years since the incident. Though the complete legal story that almost damaged Chrisley’s career remains untold, nevertheless, this real-estate owner still bounced back and aired his show regardless of any setbacks.
What Is The TV Show ‘Chrisley’s Know’s Best?’
Now known as a reality TV star, Chrisley hosted the nine-part entertainment series ‘‘Chrisley Knows Best’. This show first aired in 2014 and had gained popularity nationwide. The show follows Todd Chrisley and his family at home and shares a real-life insight into his family’s daily life and routine in America.
Todd is considered a humorous and opinionated iconic husband, a patriarch of the Chrisley household, and a playful father to his five children. Chrisley Knows Best is a show that unveils Todd’s unique parenting techniques that often amuse viewers, and showcases his involvement with family dramas.
A loyal fan base is formed…
The show’s initial reception was a popular hit, and it didn’t take long until Todd Chrisley developed a loyal fan base. The reality entertainment show soon became popular and received a positive audience after its launch.
Fans were more excited to watch more of the reality TV star. The recent ninth series aired in August 2021 until December 2021 reached 800,000 viewers nationwide. Chrisley’s viewers continue to reach an impressive average of one million viewers per season.
What Was Chrisley’s Company Idea?
Fans of ‘Chrisley Know’s Best’ will know about Chrisley’s business idea to launch a merchandise department store for the television show. The big news was announced during the first season of the reality television series.
Creating this business idea was an innovative concept that Chrisley, his family, and his fans hoped would happen. Chrisley certainly had the fan base and popularity to make it work. Though, it remains a mystery why the store never opened.
Future investment for his children…
During the air of his series, Chrisley expressed his arrangements to lease a building for his department store. He shared his thoughts about designing and building a strong brand label for his business and television series.
Chrisley also voiced how he intended the department store to be a future investment for the opportunity for his children too. So, it’s safe to say that Chrisley, his family, as well as the millions of viewers were almost certain it would be a success. So, why the sudden change? Why did the department store never open?
What Happened To Chrisley And The Company?
Unfortunately, despite his growth into celebrity stardom as a new reality TV star, his reputation as a real-estate investor created newfound hurdles and tainted his smooth transition as a reality television star.
Moreover, pending the tax fraud investigations and claiming bankruptcy in 2021, Chrisley and his wife were affected by other financial difficulties. Despite the hurdles faced, Todd still stuck with the plan to open a new department store, and this proposition was still on the cards. So, fans were left wondering what happened?
The truth comes out…
Speculations continue to arise about Chrisley and his company. We are left questioning what happened? Why didn’t he open the store? The truth is that we don’t know exactly why. We can only take a guess and point the finger in the financial direction. Todd hasn’t openly expressed the reasons why the ideal fell through. So we’re unable to get a real glimpse into this issue.
Perhaps the timing of the legal investigations stumped his business idea to go ahead. Maybe he couldn’t afford to invest anymore as he faced more costly charges. Or perhaps Chrisley just had a change of plan and lost confidence in the plan.
The Future Of Chrisley And The Company
It’s believed Chrisley and his family still face legal charges and accusations related to tax and bank fraud. According to the media, in 2021, Todd Chrisley was accused of several bank fraud charges, and they are currently still pending.
Rumour has it that during legal proceedings, Chrisley’s attorneys tried to hide evidence that suggested they were guilty of committing these charges. Though the issue remains a gossip hot topic, it’s still a sensitive yet unclear topic for fans.
Guilty or not guilty…
Though it remains uncertain whether Todd Chrisley was guilty of these legal charges, the issue still seems unresolved. Because of their time in the media spotlight, and not for good reason and this may be the reason why they delayed opening up the department store. Perhaps their business idea came at the wrong time, and on top of that, the Chrisley couple may have to confront even more financial difficulties.
It’s proving to be a long process. Also, who would dream of opening up a business when there is so much controversy circulating. Guilty or not guilty, maybe it’s not meant to be. Another time in the future, perhaps Chrisley’s business idea will make a comeback.
What’s the Future of ‘Chrisley Knows Best?’
Maybe the end is nigh for Chrisley’s department store idea. Though, there’s still the possibility ‘Chrisley Knows Best’ will continue to air on American Television.
It’s safe to say that fans would be sad to see the Chrisley family leave their screens after a nine-part dramatic and emotional series. So, fans are itching with restlessness to see Chrisley and his family return with a vengeance.
