Julie Chrisley has experienced many changes in her personal life in recent years as she and her family have been caught up in a legal drama.
In an episode of daughter Savannah Chrisley's Unlocked Podcast, taped before Julie and husband Todd Chrisley were convicted of financial crimes, the 49-year-old Chrisley Knows Best star shared how the cheating case has impacted their friendships.
Savannah, 25, started the chat by recalling how Julie had a more challenging time than Todd, 53, of not hearing from loved ones. "Dad has never been a great friend of friends because he always said he has what he needs in all of us. His circle is very small,” Savannah explained.
But she told her mother: "I've seen you struggle with certain people who haven't reached out to you - people you've known for years, either since you were a kid or 20 years, whatever it is . Not reporting sucks.”

Julie then suggested that "maybe people don't know what to say."
"Maybe they're uncomfortable. I do not know what. I do not know why. I can't imagine it," she continued. "I'm just the kind of person where if I'm your friend, I'm your friend. I'm your friend whether we have 2 dollars together or have millions, whether things are going well or whether our worlds are falling apart. whether our children are great or whether they are lost. That's just me."
Julie added: "I think some people might feel like they're making themselves smudged or looking bad by reaching out to me. Well, listen, that's up to you, because I know what I've done. More importantly, I know what I didn't do."

Reflecting on her own experiences, Savannah said she was "grateful" for those who stayed in her corner amid the chaos.
"I've always kept my circle of friends small. To be honest, more people came forward that shocked me than people that didn't," she said. "I'm grateful for that."

Elsewhere in the podcast, Savannah spoke about her anger at the justice system and her family's situation.
“Why do we keep letting people down? ... It tears families apart," she said. "Look at what we're going through. how is that fair It's not when you have rapists and murderers and traffickers and all these people out here, but what? You just get a slap on the hand.”
“It all depends on us being in the public eye and somebody wanting to prove something. And it's honestly sad," she continued. "At this point I feel like I've kind of gone numb, but that numbness has turned to anger where now it's like I'm not giving up. There is no other option.”

Savannah added that she had to "turn her pain into anger to keep me from falling in."
"It just pushes me and gives me the strength to keep moving instead of just sitting in it and sulking. Because if I sit in it and sulk, then it's going to lead me down a path I don't need to be on," she concluded. "So I'm going to use it as anger and motivation, but that's not the best thing either."

In response to her conviction, Alex Little of Burr & Forman LLP - the couple's lawyer - said the Chrisley family remain "optimistic" despite the conviction.
Calling the sentencing date "a difficult day for the Chrisley family," he added, "But Todd and Julie are people of faith, and that belief gives them strength when they appeal their beliefs." Their trial was marred by serious and repeated errors, including the government lying to the jury about what taxes the couple paid. These issues make us optimistic about the future."
