Why Kelly Ripa Doesn't Care That Her Teen Daughter Doesn't Like Her

"I'm like, 'I'm not your friend. I'm your mom,'" she said.

The "Live with Kelly and Michael" co-host said that these days, Lola, 13, isn't her biggest fan.

Ripa, 44, explained that not only is she a source of embarrassment for her teen, but recently, she and her husband, Mark Consuelos, were forced to punish their daughter. Ripa said she revoked their daughter's phone and Internet privileges because she was using her phone when she was supposed to be studying Spanish.

"She broke the rules," Ripa said, before getting a little less serious. "I'm like, 'You're half-Mexican. Your grandmother is a Spanish teacher. You're not allowed to fail Spanish. It's the one thing you're not allowed to fail!'"

"We're very fair parents and we will give you certain freedoms, but... you can't have privacy and be on Instagram," she said. "That's not how it works."
