In a surprising revelation on her "Southern Tea" podcast episode on October 4th, Lindsie Chrisley, the former star of "Chrisley Knows Best" and sister to Savannah Chrisley, confessed that she had not reached out to Savannah following the tragic death of her ex-fiancé, Nic Kerdiles. This disclosure has stirred up discussions and curiosity about the dynamics within the Chrisley family and Lindsie's reasons for her actions.

Lindsie began by addressing the elephant in the room, stating, "In short, I have not reached out to Savannah." She then proceeded to shed light on her rationale behind this decision, citing her concern for her sister's emotional state during such a trying time. "I know that she is understandably very upset and grieving, and I in no way wanted to make the situation any worse than what it already was," Lindsie explained.

This revelation comes on the heels of a recent appearance by Lindsie on Kailyn Lowry's "Coffee Convos" podcast, where she defended her choice not to post a public statement about Nic's passing. Lindsie explained her perspective, emphasizing the importance of sincerity over social media posts. "It would almost come across — based off of the events that have taken place with myself and my sister — for me to post something because it would feel insincere," she stated. Lindsie firmly believes that one's life should be lived authentically, focusing on real-life actions rather than merely projecting an image on social media.

She also referenced Savannah's previous appearance on "The Viall Files," where Savannah had openly mentioned that she and Lindsie weren't in regular contact. Lindsie respected her sister's wishes, expressed during that podcast, regarding their lack of involvement in each other's personal lives. "I chose to respect her wishes that she had expressed on that guest spot on Nick Viall's podcast regarding us not having any type of involvement in each other's personal lives, and just decided that it was best not only for her but for me not to reach out," Lindsie elaborated.

Despite not directly contacting Savannah, Lindsie made it clear that she had indirectly checked on her sister's well-being through communication with other family members. Her heart goes out to Savannah during this challenging period, extending her condolences and support to her sister as anyone would in such a situation.

Reflecting on the past, Lindsie acknowledged the estrangement between herself and her family during the early stages of Savannah's relationship with Nic. "I was estranged from my family when [Savannah's] relationship started with Nic," she admitted. By the time Lindsie re-entered the family picture, Nic and Savannah had called off their engagement, temporarily returned to being boyfriend and girlfriend, and subsequently experienced a breakup. This sequence of events meant that Lindsie had limited insight into their relationship. She could only speak from her personal experiences, which had involved minimal interaction with Nic.

Nonetheless, Lindsie recognized the love and care that Savannah and Nic had for each other, despite the ups and downs of their relationship. On September 23rd, Nic's life was tragically cut short in a motorcycle accident in Nashville. He was pronounced dead at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Savannah, in the wake of this devastating news, penned a heartfelt tribute to her former fiancé, expressing her profound grief and love for him.

"Heaven gained the most beautiful angel today," Savannah wrote. "I miss you, and I love you … I'll forever save our last message of 'I love you.'"

In these trying times, Lindsie's decision not to reach out to her sister Savannah may appear puzzling to some. Still, it reflects her desire to respect her sister's boundaries and prioritize sincerity over social media gestures. The complex dynamics within the Chrisley family continue to evolve, and this revelation adds another layer to the intricate relationships among its members.
