Savannah says she is ‘broken’

Giving her listeners an update on her life, Savannah took to her Unlocked podcast on January 31 and said she had been through “the toughest week.”

Savannah recorded the episode on January 24, a week to the day after her parents reported to prison to serve their sentences. The 25-year-old said she’s helping “two kids process what’s happening in our life.”

She added she had shed a lot of tears, felt “a lot of anger” and been “completely broken” to her core. However, Savannah also said she has “had to figure out how to rebuild.”

Todd and Julie set to appeal

She said: “We are filing the appeal and that will happen in mid-February.”

The Sassy By Savannah owner added she is “putting her faith” in the family’s attorneys and God.

During the January 31 podcast episode, former Chrisley Knows Best and Growing Up Chrisley star Savannah said she was “helping to guide” her younger siblings, Grayson and Chloe, through their current life situation while their parents are in prison.

Savannah said: “I’m having to guide them through this process as I’m trying to guide myself through this process, which is very, very difficult.”

She added she’s “trying to be strong” for her siblings, continuing that 16-year-old Grayson “had a breakdown” and was trying to “process” what’s going on.

Savannah also said Chloe, who is ten years old, was “trying to process them being gone and missing her mom.”

She said: “Chloe had so much anger towards the situation and she just said ‘Why? Why? They’re not bad people, they don’t belong there. Why?'”

Savannah recalled telling Chloe she’s doing all she can to get her parents “back home.”
