She said:

"I think he loves the freedom. He hates paying his own rent and he's chronically poor. I don't think he ever really experienced extreme poverty like now."

She also shared that Michael used to ignore Halloween money sent to him, but now he calls just to ask if the envelope has come.

The "Live with Kelly and Ryan" host also shared her encounter with her husband, Mark Consuelos, after they brought their son to the dorm for his freshman year. She recalled:

"We drop him off at his dorm. We have lunch together. We look at each other. We say, 'We did it. We have a child in college. We did it! Oh my gosh! We come home. It's about ten minutes away. We walk through the front door and he is standing in the hallway."
