todd chrisley chrisley knows best season 8 trailer

Real estate hot shot Todd Chrisley is known for putting a lot of his life on camera as the head of the USA reality series Chrisley Knows Best, which is set to premiere Season 8 at some point in 2020. However, Chrisley and his family played things very close to the vest recently concerning his positive diagnosis for COVID-19. After spending some time in the hospital, Chrisley is apparently now on the mend, and he revealed how bad things got.

Todd Chrisley immediately jumped into the nitty gritty during the latest episode of his and Julie Chrisley's podcast Chrisley Confessions. Literally as soon as the episode started, he started dropping details. In his words:

Folks, come on. Can we talk about this bitch called corona? I have been battling corona for three weeks. I was in the hospital for four and a half days. Fever between 100 to 103, and it has been the sickest that I have ever been in the 52 years that I have been on this earth. . . . I cannot ever tell you a time in my life where I was as sick as I have been with the coronavirus.

At that point, Todd Chrisley shared his concerns for all the elderly people who aren't in a better position health-wise to fight the debilitating COVID-19 symptoms. All while Julie continued to hammer home how serious the pandemic is.

Even though Todd Chrisley was able to record a podcast with his wife, that doesn't mean he's rid himself of all the COVID-19 symptoms. Sometimes recovering can be only slightly less miserable than the peak of an illness. Here's how Chrisley says he is on a grand scale.

As of as of right now, folks, I still am not clicking on all cylinders. I am probably about 70 to 75% of what I normally am, but that last 20-25% is kicking my ass. So that's what I've been battling. And, you know, Julie and Savannah, as well, because even though they were not there, they were calling non-stop, I've been told. I was in and out of it.

Obviously Todd Chrisley's family had to keep a fair distance after he was diagnosed with coronavirus, as not to spread anything themselves.

Fitting (and expected) that he would bring up daughter Savannah Chrisley, who took to social media to give more backstory to his coronavirus diagnosis. Here's part of the message she wanted to spread.

When dad started getting sick I immediately started worrying...he and I are the worriers of the bunch. After a couple days mom and I talked him into going to urgent care...he went in and he was showing all symptoms of COVID-19 so they tested him. Here in TN Vanderbilt was extremely prepared for testing and has testing at 15 or so of their walk in clinics. So before people say...'OH HE ONLY GOT TESTED BECAUSE HES A CELEBRITY...' u are WRONG! He went into an urgent care just like the rest of u would. After getting tested he went back home and stayed quarantined in his bedroom for 7 days and then his test came back..POSITIVE..when mom and I read that our hearts dropped.

It's excellent that Todd Chrisley and others are recovering well from his diagnosis, considering not everyone is able to say the same. In recent days, entertainers such as Grammy-winner John Prine, Gomer Pyle star Forrest Compton, Fountains of Wayne musician Adam Schlesinger and more. Here's hoping the Chrisley family can all look forward to healthy months ahead as the wait for Season 8 of Chrisley Knows Best continues.

COVID-19: Dad was diagnosed with the coronavirus about 2.5 weeks ago..and I have never been so scared in my life. When everything started with COVID-19 I was like a lot of u...my mindset was “Wash your hands, don’t touch people, and you’ll be ok...” BUT BOY HAS THAT IRRESPONSIBLE MINDSET CHANGED! When dad started getting sick I immediately started worrying...he and I are the worriers of the bunch. After a couple days mom and I talked him into going to urgent care...he went in and he was showing all symptoms of COVID-19 so they tested him. Here in TN Vanderbilt was extremely prepared for testing and has testing at 15 or so of their walk in clinics. So before people say...”OH HE ONLY GOT TESTED BECAUSE HES A CELEBRITY...” u are WRONG! He went into an urgent care just like the rest of u would. After getting tested he went back home and stayed quarantined in his bedroom for 7 days and then his test came back..POSITIVE..when mom and I read that our hearts dropped. Dads symptoms were worsening as days went on..finally at 3am on a Sunday he woke mom up saying he has to go to the ER..he couldn’t fight it any longer. When she got there they made her drop him off and leave because of all the strict guidelines. He stayed at Vanderbilt for 3 days and those were the hardest 3 days I think I’ve ever endured. I talk to my daddy 10x a day! He’s my bestfriend...I also never go to bed a single night without a “Goodnight and I love you” text..and now my dad was sitting in a hospital room by himself and I had no idea how he was. At one point I fell on my hands and knees and begged God to not take him..to not take my bestfriend..I would give everything I had if it meant keeping my daddy. I was so desperate that I dropped photos of our family off at the hospital and said “If he sees these I know he’ll keep fighting!” So I guess the point of me telling u all this is so that u take it seriously...STAY HOME! SOCIAL DISTANCE! And most importantly..LOVE HARDER THAN EVER! Life is so short. I also owe a HUGE THANK U to my friends @charlesgalanismd @drjacobunger for walking me through all the steps we needed to follow and continuously checking in on us. As well as the drs and nurses @ Vandy?
