“My heart really and truly breaks because I know the heartache that she felt when her mother passed,” he explains. “Some people cope with things differently, and I hope and pray that the Lord will grant her peace regardless of the outcome.”

“All of our friends knew Whitney from the country club and my heart goes out to that family. God bless them.”

Chrisley is especially thinking about Houston's mother Cissy, 81, who published a memoir about her life with her talented late daughter in 2013.

“Cissy is a wonderful, wonderful woman,” he says. “I hope that the Lord will grant her the peace that she needs at this time.”
