CHRISLEY Knows Best star Todd Chrisley made his wife Julie feel “insecure” after he encouraged her to get a facelift during Thursday’s episode of the USA Network show.
Todd, 51, made the suggestion after Julie, 47, vented to him about feeling old.

During the episode, Todd surprised Julie by taking her to a plastic surgeon for a facelift consultation.
Following the appointment, Julie accused her husband of telling the doctor that she needed “to rebuild my whole self.”
Todd replied: “I clearly just want to give you the very best of whatever it is you’re looking for. I started taking care of myself at 40. I mean, don’t you want some of this?”
Julie later opened up to a friend about her frustrations toward her husband and said: “I was venting to Todd about feeling older and before I knew it I was over at the plastic surgeon’s office and they’re making me over from head to toe.”
She continued: “Everyone knows that men are visual creatures. Todd is on visual overload. The house has to look a certain way, the kids a certain way.
“Not that he doesn’t love me- I know that he does- but the fact that he’s brutally honest makes it even worse.”
In an attempt to please Todd’s wishes, Julie returned home with new clothes, makeup and freshly painted nails.
When Todd and their 24-year-old son Chase asked when dinner would be ready, she told them that they had to fend for themselves.
Todd later asked their 22-year-old daughter Savannah why Julie was so focused on her looks.
Todd noted that she had “been acting so different” since the appointment and explained: “She said she felt like the oldest mother in carpool, so I said, ‘Then go get a facelift.’”
Savannah angrily responded: “That’s your problem. Why would you tell her that?”
He said he was “merely giving her an option” and Savannah replied: “All she was looking for was a compliment, but now she probably thinks that you think she looks old.”
Todd said: “I think your mother looks amazing and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with the way that she looks.”
Their daughter said that Todd had to “make the old Julie feel young again.”

The episode ended with Todd apologizing to Julie for “being insensitive” and “trying to give you what I thought that you wanted.”
Julie admitted that the consultation made her “more insecure,” though Todd explained: “I didn’t mean to make you feel insecure. When I got close to 50, a little nip/tuck made me feel better so I thought it would do the same for you.”
Julie responded: “Let me approach 50 my own way, preferably without a scalpel.”
