Kelly Ripa canceled daughter Lola's debit card for this relatable reason

Kelly Ripa and husband Mark Consuelos are ensuring their daughter, Lola, receives the full college experience. For the NYU freshman, that means everything from dorm room living, house parties, shared bathrooms and even meal plans. 

But there were some parts of university life that the 18-year-old has struggled to get on board with: the food. 

In a recent episode of "Live with Kelly and Ryan," Ripa revealed that Lola was actually the one to teach her about the meal delivery app Postmates after noticing her daughter rack up charges on her debit. 

“I didn’t know our daughter had Postmates,” she explained. “She’s at college and we signed her up for a meal plan, cause we’re not monsters.”

“But you know, she doesn’t like the meals at school so she was ordering Postmates,” Ripa continued. “Here’s what would happen. She would order the $7 salad but it would cost $25 dollars to have it delivered three blocks in New York City.”

Lola's eating spree didn't last long, according to her mother. 

“Oh, we shut down that debit card account she had,” Ripa revealed.

Both Lola and her older brother, Michael, attend NYU, a decision that was difficult for Ripa because it was so close to home. 

“Your friends go, ‘At least she’s nearby’ and I go, ‘Yeah, but that’s not good’ because if she feels homesick, I have to say to her, ‘No, you can’t come home, you’re gonna have to work it out … whatever you’re going through, figure it out," the television personality said on an episode of "Live with Kelly and Ryan."

“I treat it all the same,” she told co-host Ryan Seacrest. “I did the same thing with my son. It’s like, ‘You’re gonna have to figure out how to be an adult, this is when you figure it out.'”

Ripa continued:

“Because the thing is you got into more than one school and when we sat down and discussed which school you should go to, this was my main concern,” Ripa explained. “My main concern was I don’t know if you should be this close to home because I don’t want you using home like it’s your home. I want you to use it as an experience!”
