Who is Todd Chrisley’s ex-wife Teresa Terry?
Born on an unknown date in 1971, in South Carolina, USA, Teresa Terry is a Caucasian female of unknown profession, definitely best known as the ex-wife of the businessman, producer, actor and “Chrisley Knows Best” reality TV star Michael Todd Chrisley. Although she was a part of his life, she never featured on the show, and the public only recently found out about her. It is unknown what personal successes she has had thus far.
Todd met Teresa while they were high school students back in Westminster in South Carolina. He was 19 years old at the time, and she was 17. Todd used to bring his friends over to his place on weekends and after school, and as Teresa began attending these gatherings more frequently, the two grew closer and eventually began dating. In an interview, Teresa revealed that Todd’s mother Faye used to cook for them every time she was around, and that they spent a lot of time going to the movies as well. Additionally, she stated ‘I can see why people would think he is gay’, since Todd was allegedly greatly interested in soap operas and becoming a model, as well as interior decorating.
The RelationshipAfter two years of dating went by, Teresa realized she was pregnant, and Todd decided that the right thing to do was marry her. At an unspecified point in time, Teresa gave birth to Todd’s first child, a daughter named Lindsie Michael Todd Chrisley. Only fifteen months after Lindsie was born, Teresa gave birth to Todd’s second child, this time a son named Kyle Chrisley. It looks like the first pregnancy was the main reason for their marriage, as Teresa herself said ‘Most likely we wouldn’t have married if I hadn’t been pregnant, but we did and it was a big deal. There were six attendants, on both sides and even though the town where we lived wasn’t big, the church was full.’ During her first pregnancy, Teresa was bed ridden after the fourth month started, and she said Todd was very worried and tended to her all the while. However, she also says that he drastically changed after the birth of their second child.
The AbuseTeresa says that Todd became a control freak after their son was born, and that he was irritated that he couldn’t control absolutely everything. As she states, ‘He had a mind-set that everything had to be in place at all times. He applied that to people as well. I like to put on a ball cap, put my hair in a ponytail and go out, but with him your hair always had to be fixed and you had to be dressed to the tens. I grew tired of being constantly corrected and I would run my mouth.’ There are certain court documents to testify to the violence that allegedly occurred, in which Todd stands accused of conducting a ‘campaign of mental and physical abuse’, ‘battering’ Teresa multiple times, on one occasion with ‘his closed fist’ after she was stripped naked. There are also allegations that he once wielded a knife and threatened to kill Teresa, while once she also saw him beating his own mother. All these incidents made Teresa file for divorce in 1994. Finally, when interviewed for Daily Mail, Teresa added ‘I don’t know what happened to Todd really, I’ve known him a very long time and I know that he’s not all bad. There’s good in him. He can be very witty and fun company, but if he doesn’t get what he wants you’d better believe there will be consequences.’
Teresa stated that Todd never really appreciated having ‘regular clothing’, but that he was always interested in the latest fashion. As she says, ‘He carried himself different. He always wanted to wear the latest fashions, most of the people we went to school with were happy to wear T-shirts and jeans. He wanted to get his clothes at Neiman Marcus. His parents were just regular middle-class people. I don’t know where it came from but I guess he just always wanted something different. I don’t think that’s necessarily a bad thing.’
Life After Todd
Teresa now spends her time with her second husband and their two children, aged 15 and 12 and four grandchildren in rural Oklahoma. In the interview, she didn’t express any contempt for Todd, even after the failed marriage. Evidently, she found her peace with another partner, as has Chrisley.
