Before March 2014, the year Chrisley Knows Best premiered, Julie Chrisley was just a regular American living with her wealthy real estate mogul husband Todd. The reality show became her first ever taste of fame.

A new celeb on the block, not much was initially known about her, however after the reality show began to garner much popularity, Americans became increasingly interested in the Chrisleys, Julie inclusive.

Top media outlets have dug up some lesser known facts about Julie who was born as Julie Hughes on the 9th of January, 1973, in South Carolina to a Baptist Minister father, Rev. Harvey Hughes Jr and mother Pa, Hix Hughes.

Cancer Scare

Julie was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012. She revealed to Hello Magazine “I was diagnosed on March 5; I had my double mastectomy on March 22.”

She also revealed that despite not having a family history she began researching on the disease immediately after the diagnosis.

“I didn’t waste any time… The minute I was diagnosed, I started researching… I had to do what was best for me and my family. I didn’t want to place the burden on my children more than I had to. I had teenagers and a 6-year-old.” Julie said.

Upon the suggestion of Todd, Julie decided to get a mammogram and fortunately, she fought off the cancer. She told Hello; “I am really glad I went when I did…If I had waited another year, [the odds] may not have been what they were.”

Julie has now been living cancer free since then.
