If you are a fan of Chrisley Knows Best, you surely know who Julie Chrisley is. Married to Todd Chrisley, a man who made all his money from dealing in real estate, she is standing by his side, even as he faces financial troubles.
While Todd Chrisley’s estimated net worth is a negative $5.0 million, his wife’s net worth is on an upswing. According to sources, Julie Chrisley’s estimated net worth in 2018 is $3.0 million and growing. She earned most of her money from the reality TV show, in which she stars alongside her family.
How Much Does Julie Chrisley Make?
Julie Chrisley’s salary is estimated to be $260,000 per year. Though she worked in several low paying jobs when she was younger, her fortunes rose after she married Todd Chrisley, who was as ambitious as they come. After their marriage, he set up several lucrative job opportunities for her, which she happily accepted.
Julie supported him throughout their relationship, and Todd was able to amass a decent fortune before landing in trouble.
A Childhood without Luxuries
Born on January 9, 1973, in South Carolina to a Baptist minister named Harvey Hughes, and a bank teller named Pam, Julie Chrisley’s age is 45. Her childhood was simple, without many luxuries. Her family lived in a trailer for a long time.
Younger Brother Committed Suicide
Julie’s life was shattered when her younger brother, Trey Hughes took his own life. Her way of dealing with it was to work hard, and keep busy.
A Controversial Past
There is some controversy regarding Julie’s relationship status when she first started dating Todd.
It was reported that Julie married Kenneth Wayne Childress on March 15, 1991, and that they fall in love in high school. The claim added that Julie dated Todd while still married to Childress, which eventually led to their divorce, and the current couple’s subsequent marriage.
Moving to Nashville
For a long time, Julie Chrisley lived with her family in the $2.4 million, 30,000 sq.ft. mansion in Georgia where the initial seasons of Chrisley Knows Best were shot. However, she and her family now live in Nashville, Tennessee, where season 6 of the show is being shot.
Things have been tight for the Chrisley family since 2012, when Todd declared bankruptcy. In 2013, he filed for corporate bankruptcy for his company Chrisley Asset Management.
It was a bit of a comedown for Todd, who at one point in the show boasted that he was spending over $300,000 a year on clothes alone.
However, thanks to Julie Chrisley’s steady income, and an estimated net worth of over $3.0 million, they managed to maintain their lifestyle. And now that some of their children are financially independent, Todd and Julie have fewer creases on their foreheads.
