Todd Chrisley is dealing with a lot right now, but he's got hope.

The proud dad and Chrisley Knows Best star stopped by E! News to chat with Jason Kennedy and Catt Sadler about some of the recent family struggles that he's facing, starting with the strained relationship he has with his son Kyle, who has bipolar disorder and recently blasted his father in an interview with the Daily Mail.

In the piece, Kyle described his dad as toxic and a snake who has "ruined me and he's ruined the other three kids he's had who are spoiled."

And although those words hurt, Todd says he loves his son the same. "My relationship hasn't changed because of the things Kyle's doing. I love him the same since the day I brought him home from the hospital and held him the first time," Chrisley tells E! News.

"I just have to love Kyle a little differently right now, because Kyle has to get back on his medicine. He has to get stable and understand—he knows the difference between right and wrong. They've all been brought up to know the difference," he continues.

"And when one of my children ventures out of that lane, it's my job as a parent to pull them back in. So my relationship hasn't changed with my son, I still love him the same as before he decided to call me a snake. "

Unfortunately, this isn't the only issue Chrisley is trying to overcome—his brother Randy was diagnosed with stage four cancer.

"I flew back to be with my brother and I had him moved to a hospital in Atlanta and he's doing as well as he can. He's on his sixth round of radiation and first round of chemo so he's kinda knocked out right now with the chemo," Todd tells us.

"But you know, we're prayerful, we lift it up to the Lord and we trust that whatever's gonna happen is gonna happen and He'll give us the strength to walk through it."
