As per the name of his funny reality show, Todd Kressley knows best.
But there is one thing his estranged daughter, Lindsey, would like the former USA Network personality to know at this very moment:
He may never see or talk to his child again.
“There will never be a reconciliation,” Lindsay told Entertainment Tonight on Thursday, September 2, when asked about the state of things between her and her infamous father.
“I think the most anyone can ask at this point is for everyone to go on with their lives as they see fit and to leave the other side alone.
“But at this point there will be no chance for reconciliation.
“Unfortunately, I will continue to respond to any allegations that are made.”
Lindsey co-hosted a podcast with 2 teen mom star Kaelyn Lowry.
She also used to star alongside her parents and brother in Chrisley Knows Best, but has been at odds with her dad for the past few years.
In 2017, Todd accused his daughter of leaking financial information to a private investigator and thus helping to build a tax evasion case against him.
It was Todd and his wife nationwide in 2019 With these charges, they face similar federal charges.
Amid the scandal of Todd and his legal wife Julie, Lindsay once claimed that her father and brother Chase, Blackmailed her with an alleged sex tape.
This accusation was supported by former Bachelorette fiancé Robbie Hayes, who was engaged in a brief affair with Lindsey.
In September 2019, Hayes admitted that a “sex tape” showing him with Lindsay was “held over my head” because the latter was married at the time of its recording.
“We were blackmailed two years ago,” Hayes added. “I knew he was there.”
“It’s an unfortunate situation,” Hayes continued. “I hope Lindsey can put that down because she’s always had a great reputation.” “It’s his girlfriend.
“She’s a great mom. It’s heartbreaking,”
The allegation is that Todd threatened to release footage of his daughter committing adultery…unless she agreed to help her parents fight the aforementioned tax evasion charges,
When the topic was brought up years ago, Todd denied such allegations, he recently reported back in his podcast:
“No one tried to blackmail anyone.”
Todd and Chase consistently smash Lindsay at every opportunity, leading the 29-year-old to tell ET that she sought professional help to learn how to deal with all this betrayal.
“Throughout therapy for the past year, my therapist just advised me not to tune in, not to follow on social media, things that have been posted because it excites me,” the South Carolina native explained.
“So, I try to distance myself from that as much as possible.”
Lindsey claims she has offered to sit down with her brother and/or father on numerous occasions…but her offers have always been the subject of a rebuke.
Neither she nor her eight-year-old son has been in contact with Todd’s wife Julie Chrisley or sister Savannah Chrisley.
“I feel like it’s healthy for me to be where I am,” she told ET.
“I need to protect my peace and I don’t want to do drugs in dramas all the time.
“And unfortunately, I’ve always been the one that surrounds the drama because I’m not a part of them, you know? And so I’m on the outside looking at me.
“So I’m always the target.”
In July, when she learned that Lindsay was getting a divorce, Todd spoke about his broken relationship in his podcast.
“I didn’t know Lindsay and Will had broken up. I didn’t know they lived in the same house and lived separate lives. I didn’t know anything about it,” he said.
“All the things the press are asking me about now… I didn’t know any of this. Lindsey and I have been away for several years now. We don’t talk.
“We have no contact, and she has no contact with any other member of this family.”
