Lindsie Chrisley calls out Abby Lee Miller following the “Dance Moms” alum’s opinions about her father’s prison sentence.
The blonde beauty is notably known as Todd Chrisley’s oldest daughter with his ex-wife Teresa Terry. The father and daughter previously made headlines for their strained relationship, where they accused each other of lies and harassment.
However, the pair have since settled their differences, with the South Carolina native standing in solidarity with her siblings amid the patriarch’s imprisonment. This is why the TV personality quickly shut down Miller’s unsolicited thoughts about her father.
Lindsie Chrisley Labels Abby Lee Miller A Clout Chaser For Addressing Todd Chrisley’s Incarceration
On the latest episode of the entertainer’s “Southern Tea“ podcast, the mother-of-one showed no remorse as she attacked Miller for discussing her father’s imprisonment. The former Dance Masters of America member publicly addressed Todd’s situation in an interview.
During her sit-down with the news outlet, Miller described the “Chrisley Know Best” star as “very bougie,” claiming the real estate mogul would face challenges adjusting to prison life. In her words: “He is not going to be able to handle, like, the soap and the towels.”
Additionally, the founder of the Abby Lee Dance Company revealed that she had advised Todd to “be careful” during the duo’s alleged exchanges about prison life before the 54-year-old’s incarceration. After learning about Miller’s interview, Lindsie confessed that she debated addressing the situation on her podcast.
However, the blonde beauty chose to discuss the matter as she believed the older entertainer had crossed a line. The media personality began by shaming the 57-year-old over her criminal history before reacting to Miller’s opinions about her father.
“I don’t mean this in a petty way, and it’s probably going to come across a little petty, but what she did, in my opinion, was very inappropriate,” Lindsie said on her podcast, noting that the disgraced dance coach should not have publicly discussed private messages.
“She aired what she claimed was private communications with my dad … it’s a betrayal. … She should know better. I don’t believe she would have been brave enough to do this if my dad hadn’t been incarcerated,” the doting daughter added.
The reality TV star advised the older entertainer to use her platform more productively instead of utilizing another family’s misfortune for clout. Urging Miller to “have some dignity,” Lindsie said:
“She knows, as well as her team, that everything on my family is currently being reported. Frankly, if someone in my family farted, it would be reported … she wanted to gain press for her project.”
The South Carolina native continued: “I can assure you there’s no concern over towels or soap. I want to encourage her to give back to her community … thirsty for headlines.”
Ending with more saltiness, the “Living Like Lindsie” blogger added: “For what it’s worth, I didn’t like her on Dance Moms anyway. That’s me just being petty spaghetti.”
The Podcaster Feared The Family’s Reality TV Show Would Affect Her Parents’ Imprisonment
The Blast reported that Lindsie opened up about fearing for Todd’s and her stepmother Julie’s safety in prison. The couple received a sentence of nineteen years for tax evasion and fraud charges.
During an episode of her “Southern Tea” podcast, the 33-year-old sat down with Justin Paperny, a prison consultant, to discuss prison reform. The South Carolina native explained that one of her “biggest concerns” about her parents’ imprisonment was the inmates’ access to TV.
The mother-of-one asked Paperny if he thought people who had watched “Chrisley Know Best” could be serving time in the same centers as her folks. Lindsie noted that she was worried the clan’s heads would be treated poorly because of their status.
Although fans of the show happened to be at the prison sites, the entertainer raved about her folks’ warm welcome. “You know my parents were welcomed with open arms, and I feel so blessed with that,” the 33-year-old confessed.
“Because I have heard of other people reporting and that not being the case. So I feel like we’re blessed in that regard,” the podcaster continued. Lindsie also revealed that Todd had begun adjusting to the system, noting that the businessman had made new friends.
“His spirits are great,” the South Carolina native explained. “He is just embracing the process there and making the best of the process there with the people also there serving time with him.”
