Jenny McCarthy’s Son Called the Cops on Her for Texting While Driving

Jenny McCarthy, who has never been a contender for World’s Best Parent, recently took to her new Sirius XM talk show and told a humorous lil’ anecdote about how her son called the cops on her for texting while driving with him in the vehicle.

She shared the following tale about her 12-year-old son, who she termed a “rule follower”: “We’re driving in the car and of course I text and drive,” she said on the radio program. “He called the police on me and said, ‘My mom is texting and driving right now.’ True story.” She responded, quoth Jenny, by throwing his phone out the window.

Parenting pro-tip: some rules are meant to be followed, such as the rule that says don’t use your hands and eyes to engage in written communication while driving a moving vehicle — especially not with your child in said moving vehicle. Also, like, if there are several PSA campaigns warning you not to engage in a behavior because you could die, maybe don’t do it with your kid around? I DON’T KNOW. Just spit-balling here.
