People: Chase & Savannah Chrisley Get Candid about Growing up under the Spotlight

Being reality stars wasn’t something Chase, 24, and Savannah, 22, chose for themselves. The limelight has come with its own pressures and the pair recently opened up about them.
Chase confessed, "It definitely changed our lives entirely,” adding: "It forced us to grow up fast.” He admitted to making mistakes throughout his journey but admitted that he’s learned how to move on and grow from them.

BEING IN THE PUBLIC EYE
However, making mistakes, even if they’re small, is a bit different for him because everything is done “in the public eye.” For Savannah, being a child star hasn’t been easy too.
Most people imagine it to be a fairytale life but the reality star confessed it came with “a lot of pressure to be perfect.” She acknowledged how overwhelming it was to have mothers allow their daughters to follow her on social media because they look up to her.
Savannah admitted: "I’ve put a lot of pressure on myself in order to live this perfect life and not disappoint people." She explained how she’d matured enough to realize that she had to live for herself and not others.
BELIEVING IN THERAPY
The reality star is working on herself and believes in therapy when things get tough. She shared how being on television had pros and cons but that she appreciated being given a platform where she could help others.
BEING A REALITY STAR AS A TEEN
Savannah and her brother have been television personalities since the inception of “Chrisley Knows Best” on March 11, 2014. She was only 15 at the time and had to deal with the “difficult” task of being a teenager and being in the spotlight.
CALLING OF HER WEDDING
Besides Savannah and Chase, the show features their parents Todd and Julie, their grandmother Nanny Faye, younger brother Grayson, and their niece Chloe. Recently, Savannah called off her wedding and engagement to fiancé, Nic Kerdiles.
WORKING ON THINGS
The couple is still together and wishes to get married one day, but for now, they are working on themselves and their relationship. The pair felt they’d rushed into things after started to date in November 2017 and getting engaged on December 24, 2018.
