Todd Chrisley, the Atlanta multimillionaire whose family reality show premiered this week, is fending off rumors about his sexuality, saying, "There is no coming out."
The 45-year-old star of USA's "Chrisley Knows Best" might love fashion and Elton John, but he's not gay.
"There's no coming out," Chrisley told People magazine this week.
"What you see is what you get. I am what I am. Other people's opinions of me are just not my business . . . I'm 45. I really don't care what your opinion of me is. The fact that you are thinking about what I'm doing in my bedroom at 45 is exciting to me."

Those "other people" voiced their opinions on Twitter this week ahead of the Tuesday night premiere of Chrisley's reality show.
Billed by the USA network as a "broad family comedy that is a modern version of 'Father Knows Best' with the volume turned way up," the show chronicles the lives of Chrisley, his wife of 18 years Julie, and their five children — Lindsie, 24; Kyle, 22; Chase, 17; Savannah, 16; and 7-year-old Grayson.
Chrisley is portrayed as a no-nonsense parent who believes in monitoring his kids' Internet use with spy software, tracking their every move with GPS devices on their vehicles, and having a say in every piece of clothing they wear. The Chrisleys even shipped their oldest son off to do Red Cross volunteer work in Samoa for nine months after they caught him having an affair with a married woman, according to E! Online
Chrisley hinted at the controversy over his sexuality on Twitter this week.
"Chrisley Knows Best" airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. EST on USA with encore reruns every Sunday at 10:30 p.m. EST on E!.
