Chrisley Knows Best patriarch Todd slams wife Julie's dad as 'the most stubborn, self-centered human' he's ever known
CHRISLEY Knows Best patriarch Todd Chrisley slammed his father-in-law as "the most self-centered human being" while Julie's dad clapped back, telling the reality star to "grow a pair" during a heated argument.
Todd and his father-in-law Harvey clashed in the beginning of Thursday's episode of the USA Network show when they started to make plans for Julie's birthday.
Tensions arose between Todd and Harvey when they both revealed their different plans for Julie's birthday celebration.
Todd, 51, wanted the family to go out for a nice dinner at a fancy restaurant, while Harvey was hoping to have a more "traditional" celebration with a barbecue at home.
When Harvey shared his plans, Todd replied: "That's not what she would want and she won't want to cook on her birthday."
Harvey responded: "She wouldn't have to cook. I'd take care of it."
Todd said: "I appreciate and respect that, but I would never have my guests come into town and have to slave over a stove to put a meal together."
Todd, his 24-year-old son Chase and Harvey later went to the restaurant for a tasting.
At the restaurant, Harvey explained that "barbecue was something we did for Julie's birthday was she was younger."
He added: "She loved it."
Todd said: "I love barbecue, but I want your daughter to have the best that I can get her."
While Todd was impressed with the restaurant's fancy food options and display, Harvey remained adamant that his daughter would prefer a home cooked meal.
Harvey said the restaurant's food had "a wonderful presentation," but was "over the top."
Todd argued: "I know what your daughter likes now because, after all, I have been married to her longer than she was at home with you."
In a separate interview with Chase, Todd said: "My relationship with Harvey is somewhat complex.
"He has been absolutely an amazing father-in-law. He's never meddled in my marriage, but he is the most stubborn, self-centered human being that I've ever known in my life."
Chase responded: "That is you for me."
They later placed a bet to feed Julie, 47, the different foods and see which option she chose.
Todd said: "Every man loves the opportunity to kick his father-in-law's ass."
Harvey responded: "Every father-in-law loves the opportunity to bring his son-in-law down a notch."
Later in the episode, Todd and Harvey fed Julie their food ideas for her birthday to see which one she liked better.
When Julie learned about the bet, she said: "I don't know why in the world y'all would want to put me in this position. This is my birthday. It's not supposed to be stressful."
The two bickered before Harvey told his son-in-law to "grow a pair."
Following a conversation with his mother, Todd decided to let his father-in-law plan the celebration.
The episode concluded with the family celebrating Julie's birthday at home with a barbecue meal prepared by Harvey, Chase and Todd.
Todd and Harvey's feud is not the only drama happening within the Chrisley family.
Savannah, 22, recently called off her engagement to Nic Kerdiles.
Todd's daughter explained during the season premiere of Chrisley Knows Best that "things just moved way too fast."
She explained: "We started dating, it was long distance. So, obviously, when we saw each other it was gonna be nothing but the good stuff. It was easy."
Savannah continued: "We just suck at communicating with one another."
