Why Were Kailyn Lowry and Lindsie Chrisley Forced to Pause Their Podcast?
Coffee Convos with Kailyn Lowry and Lindsie Chrisley is on an indefinite hiatus. Lowry and Chrisley made the announcement on social media. The podcasting duo has not stated why they are on a break, or when they’ll be returning to the podcasting mics. The friends launched their podcast on Dec. 15, 2018. Since their first episode, they’ve discussed everything from parenting to Teen Mom 2 to family drama. Ever since the announcement, fans have been theorizing about why the podcast is on hold.
Lindsie and Kailyn have put a pause on their podcast
For podcasting fans, Dec. 16 was a sad day. It was the day that Chrisley and Lowry announced they’d be unable to continue with their podcast for the time being. The pair did not share the exact reason behind their decision to go on hiatus, but a statement by Lowry admitted that the decision to pause the podcast was not their own, and they were forced to take a break for reasons beyond their control, according to In Touch.
Neither Lowry nor Chrisley have commented further on the decision, but fans have a few theories of their own. Some fans believe the decision is linked to Lowry’s recent breakdown over crazed fans. Lowry, who is no stranger to celebrity, recently took to Twitter to remind fans that she, like everyone else, deserves privacy. She stated, “I’m moving AGAIN and changing my number because y’all crazy f*cks can’t respect privacy & boundaries and don’t try to tell me it comes with the territory because it certainly f*cking doesn’t.”
Many believe that Lowry wouldn’t shut down an income stream just because of crazed fans, though. A more likely reason for the shutdown is Chrisley’s family. While the Chrisley clan has appeared on reality TV just like Lowry, their dysfunction is on an entirely different level. In the last twelve months, tax evasion charges have been handed down, and evidence of toxic behavior has been made public.
Is the Chrisley family’s legal drama to blame?
Some fans were quick to assume Todd Chrisley’s legal drama somehow played a role in the decision to put the podcast on pause. Chrisley’s father, Todd, was indicted for tax evasion in August 2019. While Todd and his wife, Julie, reached a settlement with the state of Georgia, the entire mess placed a further wedge between the family and their estranged daughter.
The Chrisley family’s tax evasion indictment seems like small potatoes compared to the family drama that unfolded because of it. The younger Chrisley went to local police in August 2019 and filed a report stating that her father and brother were attempting to blackmail her with an alleged sex tape. The tape reportedly featured Chrisley with Robby Hayes, a Bachelorette contestant. Chrisley also claimed her family was harassing her.
Chrisley still isn’t speaking to her family
While Todd and Julie may have put their legal troubles to rest, their familial strife continues. Shortly after the announcement that the podcast would be going on hiatus, Chrisley announced she would be spending the holidays away. She has no plans to reconnect with the Chrisley clan at this time.
According to TV Show Ace, Chrisley and her husband, Will Campbell, will be spending the holidays in South Carolina alone. Chrisley hasn’t spoken to her family since 2017, and the most recent drama doesn’t seem to be doing much for a potential reconciliation. Chrisley has remained relatively tight-lipped about the estrangement.
