Sigmund Freud would have a field day.
A hilarious sneak peek at the season three premiere of Growing Up Chrisley on Aug. 12 shows just how much Chase Chrisley is a "mama's boy" thanks to a shocking revelation by his friend Elliott. The exclusive clip shows Chase and Elliott prepping to host their pals, but Chase's girlfriend Emmy Medders isn't planning on attending.
"Speaking of Emmy, where is Emmy?" Elliott asks Chase. "I'm surprised she's not here."
Chase responds, "She's hanging out with my mom."
Elliott says with a smile, "Oh, she's with your mom? Interesting."
Defensively, Chase says, "Why is that interesting? They hang out all the time. I mean, they like the same stuff."
Finally, Elliott reveals why it's just so "interesting" that Chase's mom Julie Chrisley has taken such a liking to his girlfriend Emmy: they're basically twins!
"Chase, you're my brother, but those two females look alike, they walk alike, they talk alike, they breathe alike," Elliott points out. "I mean honestly, if I was in your position, I'd be like, 'This is weird, I'm dating my mom.'"
But the Chrisley Knows Best star won't hear it. "Elliott, you're disgusting," Chase snaps. Turns out, Elliott and his "whole team" have a group text solely to discuss Julie and Emmy's similarities. They even did a face morph video to prove Emmy is a mini Julie.
"That doesn't look anything like my mom," Chase states as Elliott shows him the photos. "That looks like you just Photoshopped my mom's face on...a video, are you kidding me?"
Elliott adds, "Chase, that damn near looks just like Julie and Emmy at the same time...You're a mother's boy. I think you date Emmy because she looks like your mom so you feel like you're always with your mother."
Even Chase's sister Savannah Chrisley agrees. "Oh my gosh, they totally do!" she jokes in a confessional. "Is that weird for you?"
