'Chrisley Knows Best': Todd and Julie fight as he asks her to hire 'hot nanny' after faulty house-husband stint
Julie was quite unsettled with how quickly her kids had taken to their days, without her, and when she asked them about Mrs Michelle, she heard words of praise for the new nanny
The new episode of 'Chrisley Knows Best' featured a new member, Mrs Michelle, who served as a bone of contention between the Chrisley patriarch and matriarch, Todd and Julie Chrisley. The latter was ready to push out her cookbook but before she did that, she wanted to make sure to perfect her recipes.
A friend had decided to offer her a test kitchen to do so and Julie decided to take up the opportunity but that meant slipping out of the role of a hands-on mom that she's always been. Julie spoke with Todd before she took up the offer. The ever-supportive husband that Todd is, he asked Julie to do whatever she deemed fit for her career and he'd stand behind her. He also said that he'd take care of the kids like he's always done and went ahead to wax poetic about his skills as a parent. Julie had to trust him if she was going to make a move in a forward direction on the professional front but after returning from a long day of work, she found her kitchen in shambles and the kids, unfed. That's when they decided to hire help.
Todd agreed that he wasn't acing the role of a house-husband and they began weighing their options for the future. He told Julie that he was alright with hiring help for the kids as long as it wasn't Mrs Doubtfire but instead a hot nanny. The Chrisley's hired Mrs Michelle and things began to run smoothly around the house once again. However, Julie was quite unsettled with how quickly her kids had taken to their days, without her. Her kids showed up at her kitchen and when she asked them about Mrs Michelle, she was expecting to hear complaints but instead, she heard words of praise for the new nanny.
Back at the house later, she found Todd and her kids: Grayson, Chase and Chloe, and her mother-in-law, Nanna Faye, huddled up in the living room with Mrs Michelle, playing charades. Her family once again praised the nanny and the final blow was when Chloe refused to be put to bed by Julie and wanted Mrs Michelle to do it instead.
A few days later, Julie went off on Todd after she found her kitchen rearranged by the nanny. Shortly after the flare-up she went ahead to apologize for overthinking about the situation and owned up that she felt insecure and not-needed enough while she was away. Todd retorted saying, "The kids are always going to need you because you raised them to be needy. That's the cross you have to bear." The couple still decided to keep Mrs Michelle because Julie agreed that she needed help sometimes but she'd be making some changes to her work hours so that she's not away that much.
'Chrisley Knows Best' airs Thursdays at 10 pm ET on USA Network.
