CHRISLEY Knows Best patriarch Todd Chrisley said that his mom Faye “manipulates” him into doing things he “doesn’t want to” do.
Todd added that “even my kind hear has a limit” during Thursday’s episode of the USA Network show.
The episode began with Faye asking Todd to perform with her singing group, The Sexy Pitches.
While the 51-year-old said no, Faye wouldn’t accept his answer.
He added: “You cannot go out there volunteering me for things.”
Faye said that he couldn’t let her down, though he responded: “I’m letting you down.”
In a private interview, Todd said: “I love my mother, but she’s constantly signing me up for things that I don’t want to do.”
While Todd offered to make a donation, Faye responded: “We’ll take your donation, but you’re still gonna sing.”
Todd’s 24-year-old son Chase and Faye teamed up to trick Todd into thinking Chase would take his place in the group, with the hope that Todd would notice Chase’s awful singing and take over for him.
Chase said: “My dad’s a perfectionist, so any time I do anything and it’s not up to his standards, he usually takes it over and does it himself.”
Faye added: “And when he hears how bad you are, then he’ll step in and help me out.”
After singing “butchering” Todd’s 2016 song Infinite Love, the patriarch came out and yelled: “That used to be the most beautiful song.”
Todd then addressed Chase and said: “I think that you’re cute, but you can’t sing.”
Faye asked Todd for help, though he said: “Mama, I just want you to know that I’m onto you. I know what y’all are trying to do. You’re trying to flatter me and blow smoke up my ass and get me to feel good about saying, ‘Oh, I’m gonna help you.'”
In a private interview, a frustrated Todd said: “I don’t want my mom to ever be sad, but she has to learn that she can’t manipulate me into doing everything that she wants me to do, so I’m gonna make her sweat.”
After Faye, 76, lost the chance to perform a solo, Todd confronted his mom about volunteering him for everything.
He said: “You do this to me all the time. You’re always volunteering me without asking.”
Todd continued: “You have to learn that you cannot just take for granted that because you want someone to do something that they’re gonna do that.”
The patriarch- who is also the father to Lindsie, Savannah, Kyle and Grayson- later spoke about the difficulty of “setting boundaries with your parents,” adding: “Especially when you have one that will manipulate you like mine does. But I’m glad I was able to prove my point.”
He told his mom: “Mom, you know that I love you more than anything in this world, don’t you?
“I don’t like to be manipulated, but I also don’t want to have you miss your moment in the spotlight.”
The episode concluded with Todd joining Faye and her singing group for a performance of When the Saints Go Marching In at a talent show.
Savannah- who recently called off her wedding to Nic Kerdiles- was mostly absent from the episode.
