Todd and Julie are serving 12 and 7 years, respectively, in separate federal prisons, while their children are considering a dishy tell-all in a desperate attempt to raise some cash.
"TV bosses and book publishers are making offers," an insider said. The offers aren't lowballing either, with the source claiming, "We're talking millions of dollars."
While Savannah and Chase — along with Todd's oldest from his first marriage: Kyle and Lindsie — are trying to stay loyal to their incarcerated elders, they're not used to fending for themselves.
"The truth is, these kids were spoiled for so long and they're used to nice things and being taken care of," added the insider. "They're used to mooching off their parents and a new reality is setting in. That makes these tell-all offers hard to resist."
The source explained, "They'll have to make their own way without daddy's help, and that's a harsh reality. They're in a panic about how it will all shake out."
As RadarOnline.com reported, Todd and Julie were convicted of defrauding banks out of $30 million and committing tax fraud in June. They each reported to prison on January 17.
Julie is at the Federal Medical Center Lexington in Kentucky, while Todd checked into the Federal Prison Camp Pensacola in Florida.
Despite being a 10-hour drive away from each other, Todd and Julie can still communicate behind bars.
RadarOnline.com told you first — the married couple can write letters, send emails, and possibly mail each other packages behind bars... with their wardens' approvals.

They also have plenty of time to chat with their children on the phone — as long as they stay on the staff's good side. RadarOnline.com obtained the FMC Lexington's inmate handbook, outlining Julie's telephone privileges.
As this outlet exclusively reported, the Chrisley patriarch will be limited to 300 minutes of calling time per month. All phone communication will be restricted to 15 minutes and will automatically hang up at the end of the duration.
We did the math, and that's twenty 15-minute calls as long as she's in good standing.
While Todd and Julie are getting acclimated to their new reality behind bars, their children are attempting to move forward without their parents.
The couple's youngest kids — Grayson, 16, and their adopted granddaughter, Chloe, 10 — are allegedly in Savannah's care.
Savannah revealed Grayson is taking Todd and Julie's sentences the hardest, revealing he had a "breakdown" last week.
“Last night, Gray had a breakdown, and he’s trying to process my parents and the situation that they’re in and how that’s not the image that he wants to have of them,” Savannah said on her podcast, recorded on January 24.
