Todd Chrisley Approves of Emmy:
As most Chrisley Knows Best fans know, Todd’s approval is not easy to come by — and he’ll admit it. After Chase posted a sweet snap with Emmy, the reality TV patriarch commented, “Be still my heart,” to which one fan replied, “Oh, snap!!! We got a Todd ‘like’!!!”
“And I don’t give those ‘likes’ easily, my friend,” he replied. Prior to Emmy, Chase dated, Brooke Noury, and let’s just say, Todd was not shy about sharing his true feelings.
“Listen, I’m not gonna say anything bad about anyone. If I don’t like ya, I don’t like ya. But my child, Chase, is broken-hearted over the fact that he’s single from someone that none of us like,” the Georgia native explained during a May 2018 confessional on Chrisley Knows Best. “I’m not going to lie to you, that gives me great comfort.”
Chase Chrisley and Emmy Medders Briefly Split
The former reality star and his lady hit a bump on the road in their romance when Chase confirmed to Life & Style in August 2021 they had split.
“We just thought it would be healthier and better for both of us,” he explained at the time. “I think that it just came down to we kind of looked at like what we wanted in life, and right now, it’s not matching up.”
However, their break didn’t last too long, as they were spotted spending time together by the spring of 2022. That May, Chase confirmed they were officially back on after they took a trip to Florida together.
