"This goes regardless of political affiliation: Women have to deal with so much b‑‑‑---- in every facet of life. But when it comes to politics, take that and put it to the 100th power," the co-host of Live With Kelly and Mark shared.

"Women in politics have to be tough, but not too tough. They have to look good, but not too good. They can’t be emotional, but they can’t be cold. Or they’re too strong or not strong enough.

"The same thing happened eight years later on her 16th birthday," Ripa shared. "Same exact thing."

However, in this incident, the then-teenager screamed at her parents, "'Oh my god, life is over. I used to see in color and now everything is gray. How could you do this to me? What is wrong with you people?'"

"The moral of the story is that she never learned to knock," Ripa quipped.
