Kelly Ripa, host of Live with Kelly & Ryan, was on Jimmy Kimmel Live where she said her son now lives on his own in Brooklyn. She tells Jimmy “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.”
Considering that Kelly and her husband are millionaires, people didn’t have a good reaction.
