Todd Chrisley talks gay rumors and if he believes gays are born that way


Todd Chrisley isn’t fazed by all the speculation regarding his sexuality.

The flamboyant and fashion forward star of Chrisley Knows Best has long been hounded by rumors that he’s a closeted gay man. In a recent interview with The Domenick Nati  show, the 47-year-old father-of-five put a positive spin on the topic:

“I’m flattered that people think I can get laid on both ends. So, that certainly doesn’t bother me… And my wife certainly is flattered that as many men want her husband as there are women. With that being said, I’m never going to have a drought. You on the other hand might. But Todd will never have a drought.”

Chrisley, who has been married to wife Julie Chrisley for almost 21 years, added, “In order for it to disappoint me, it would mean that I don’t agree with someone being gay. I don’t believe that’s a choice that you make. I believe that you are the way that God has made you.”

The family patriarch got involved in a confusing back and forth when the host pressed him on the reconciliation of his Christian faith with the belief that being gay is not a choice:

Nati: What is your religion?

Chrisley: I’m Christian.

Nati: But you do believe that God creates people gay. Is that what you said?

Chrisley: No that’s not what I said. I believe that God creates us all equal and if you believe and service the same Lord that I do, and you follow the scripture, then you will know that the Lord says, “I created you in my likeness.” So if he created you in his likeness then he didn’t make a mistake… The God I serve does not discriminate on the children that he made.

Nati: But you think they’re born that way? It’s not a choice?

Chrisley: I did. I believe you’re here on this Earth as God intended. In the Bible he tells you that he knew you before you were conceived. So if he knew you before you were conceived then that means he knew what you were going to become.

Nati: A lot of conservative Christians they don’t agree with that right?

Chrisley: I think that we as Christians have given ourself the bad reputation. No sin is greater than the next so I’m not passing judgment on anyone.

    I definitely think he’s gay. Nothing about him screams “Im attracted to women”. The fact that he has a wife doesn’t mean squat.

    I like Todd. I think he’s entertaining. I don’t get why people seem to be so concerned as to whether or not he’s gay. Is he flamboyant? Absolutely. But guess what? It doesn’t matter. So long as he and his wife are ok, it shouldn’t matter to anyone else.

    Todd and Julie are excellent parents. Todd is hilarious and I love him.

    I once tweeted that I wanna be Todd Chrisley when I grow up and he favorited it. Made my day.

    I don’t watch the show. All I know about him is he is gay. That’s beyond obvious.

  • What?????

    The more interesting story is his sons teeth! It’s like he bought dentures at the dollar store!

    I believe he’s either bi or gay. But, I don’t care. Maybe his wife is ok with it & that their love is deeper than sexual. I think some people get upset because if he is gay or bi they want him to say so & not be hidden. They feel being hidden is denying what you are or that you feel shame. On the other hand, I feel it’s a personal choice if you want to talk about it or not. Maybe his sexual preference is not a huge factor in his life.

    Who gives a flying felafel what his sexuality is!!! He is so hilarious that I cry laughing ? By the way love should always be celebrated regardless of gender, colour , sexuality or religion !!

    The problem with Todd’s answer about us being created in God’s image is that he forgot to mention that since Adam we are in a fallen state. Since we are in a fallen state, we are not perfect.
