Kelly Ripa is a bit of a shopaholic, so she worries that her daughter Lola will follow in her fashionable footsteps — and drain her bank account!
“I’m dreading it in a huge way,” Kelly Ripa tells In Touch about the day her daughter discovers the joys of retail therapy. “I’m going to be so poor!” HollyMoms, are your girls mini shopaholics? Kelly’s 9-year-old daughter is so particular about what she wears to school each day that Mom’s taken to padlocking Lola’s closet after she chooses her outfit (otherwise she’d be late for school every day)!
Considering Kelly, 40, is worth an estimated $25 million, thanks to her gig as co-host on Live! With Regis and Kelly, we have a feeling Lola’s shopping sprees aren’t going to cause her mom and dad, Mark Consuelos, to file for bankruptcy anytime soon!
But if money does get tight for Kelly and her 39-year-old husband, (they also have two sons Michael, 13 and Joaquin, 7) she could always earn some extra cash showing off her fancy footwork on Dancing With The Stars. “We have been [approached] and to me it’s so much fun and it’s such a great gig,” she says. “But I have three kids, we have homework; I really need to be present in my family.”
I can respect that Kelly. But, if you and Lola ever want a third shopping buddy, give me a call!
