Todd Chrisley was once a humble beloved reality TV dad. More recently he has been the face of multiple controversies. Things got so bad for Todd that he was even found guilty of tax evasion in June.

The ‘Chrisley Knows Best’ star said the trappings of fame and wealth contributed to his behavior. As he became more rich and popular, he focused more on building his bank account than being a good person. Todd Chrisley says he became a slave to money.

The revelation came on the latest episode of Todd’s ‘Chrisley Confessions‘ podcast. He said he let fame get to his head. That led to some very questionable decision-making.

“I got lost when I couldn’t tell the difference in my self-worth and my net worth. And the bigger my net worth became, the less I focused on my self-worth because everything was being built around that net worth. Around stuff…

You become a slave to the things that you thought were going to bring you peace. So I got lost in that and for my whole life because I think I was too ignorant and when I use the word ignorant, [I mean] I [didn’t] know that I understood how to differentiate self-worth and net worth.”

The future of Todd Chrisley’s reality show is up in the air after his tax conviction. In the meantime, he is using his podcast to clear the air about his past mistakes. Time will tell if he ever reaches the heights he once realized, but it doesn’t sound like he is too interested anymore.
