Riley Burruss 18th Birthday Rhoa

Riley Burruss is currently in her freshman year at New York University and like most moms, Kandi Burruss knows the best way to stay in touch with her daughter while she’s way at college is through social media.

"I’ve been missing my baby girl @rileyburruss since she’s been in school at NYU! I get excited just seeing her on the gram," The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member wrote this week, also sharing a video of Riley in her down time between classes.

In a recent interview with Bravo Insider, Riley opened up about life away from her mom and her family. "I’m still learning, it’s a lot of pressure as well, but I’m getting a lot of help. I just talk to my mom when I’m stressed. But I’m still learning how to proceed," she said, adding "I think I’ve definitely learned that I depend on, like, my household more than I realize. Even times where I may not be feeling well, and I’m like, ‘Well, I wish I was home so all of them could take care of me.’ I guess that’s just what happens when you move out on your own. But it’s just like, I wish I was home so my mom could help me with this. But of course, she can help me with things from afar. But it’s just easier when you’re right there."

Riley has been keeping her mom and fans in the know of what she’s been up to in NYC on the ‘gram indeed. From visits to museums to strolls around the city to trying out the city’s best cuisines when she’s not busy with her studies.

Still, it’s clear that "a mother’s love" is always on her mind.
