Savannah Chrisley recounted the “weird” experience of visiting her dad Todd Chrisley in prison for the first time, saying she was taken aback by his unmaintained hair.
On Tuesday’s episode of her “Unlocked With Savannah Chrisley” podcast, the 25-year-old said she didn’t expect to see that her pops switched out his signature blond locks for gray.
“I will say it’s really weird seeing him with gray hair,” she admitted. “Like, really weird. He’s definitely used some color over the years, and now seeing him with gray hair. I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh!’”
Savannah, who is being left to raise her brother Grayson, 16, and niece Chloe, 10, while her parents Todd and Julie Chrisley serve their respective sentences, said she has “so much hope” for the future after visiting her parents behind bars.
“I never felt the presence of Jesus more than I have in that visiting room,” she said. “Even visiting my dad, like, I know I have so much hope and so much restored strength that I’m like, ‘This isn’t the end.’”
“And I know that they’re going through what they’re going through for us to make a difference, for us to make a change,” she continued. “Because whether this appeal works or not, they’re still coming out with a story.”
Savannah also explained her mom’s newfound living conditions, claiming that the prison has better conditions for service dogs than it does for inmates.
“My mom’s in a facility that has no air, but yet, there are service dogs for the prison that are in a heated and cooled building because it’s inhumane for them not to have air,” she said.
“I read an executive order that [President Joe] Biden signed that said all federal inmates must be housed in environmentally friendly facilities. And I’m like, ‘OK, well, this is completely opposite of that.”
The Chrisleys were sentenced to a combined 19 years in prison for fraud and tax evasion in November.
Todd, 53, last month began his 12-year sentence at Federal Prison Camp Pensacola, while Julie, 50, is spending the next seven years two-and-a-half hours away at Federal Correctional Institution and Federal Prison Camp Marianna.
She will also serve 16 months on probation once she is released from prison.
