What happened to Nanny Faye? The truth about her rib injury.

Nanny Faye suffered a debilitating rib injury but at this moment, she is still alive and well. According to her granddaughter, Savannah Chrisley, Nanny Faye did indeed get physically hurt. On Instagram, Savannah wrote, “[Faye] like leaned over her sofa, and somehow broke two of her ribs. I have no earthly idea, y’all."

She also mentioned how Nanny Faye likes to “act like she’s very young and wants to be independent." At the end of the day, no one wants to get older if it means you can’t keep enjoying the same fun things you once could.

Nanny Faye has gotten injured before so this isn’t the first time something like this has happened, unfortunately.

During one episode of Chrisley Knows Best she actually ended up placing blame on her son, Todd Chrisley, for a foot injury that resulted in her wearing a medical boot and walking around with a cane temporarily.

She explained to Todd, “When you kept calling me, I had to get up and answer before you sent the police after me. So then I scooted from the table and I twisted my darn foot.” Getting up to answer a ringing phone call caused her foot injury but it’s incredibly funny that she scapegoated Todd for the whole thing.

Nanny Faye is living her best life.

Aside from the occasional injury and rumor mill swirling about whether or not Nanny Faye is dead or alive, she’s consistently still living her best life. Since she’s typically seen wearing a wig, not too many people might know that she actually has really nice, luxurious hair.

She also keeps her fans updated with what’s going on through the help of her official Instagram page @NannyFayeChrisley.
