EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEWJulie Chrisley Opens Up About Her Breast Cancer Battle & Season Two of ‘Chrisley Knows Best’
It’s a typical Sunday morning, but the endlessly endearing Julie Chrisley isn’t entertaining the latest antics drummed up by her children in her Atlanta home or listening to her husband, Todd Chrisley, talk about his latest business ventures.
Instead, the Chrisley Knows Best matriarch is lending her support to something even bigger — finding a cure for breast cancer.
“Truly, these are my heroes,” she said of her fellow pink-clad breast cancer survivors gathered in NYC’s Central Park to participate in the Susan G. Komen ‘Race for the Cure’ on Sept. 7.
Julie’s breast cancer battle began in March 2012 when she was urged by her husband (affectionately known as the ‘Patriarch of Perfection’) to have a routine mammogram, despite her insistence the screening was not necessary until she was over 40-years-old.
“I had a lump. I had a double mastectomy that same March and I am two years cancer free now. So I guess Chrisley really does know best,” the now 41-year-old quipped.
The Chrisley household is gearing up for the upcoming premiere of season two of their reality show, and the duo’s 17-year-old daughter, Savannah, ensures fans are in for a treat.
“I feel like the first season we tried to filter ourselves at the beginning, but this time, we’re used to [the cameras],” she said. “This season is my favorite.”
