(Newser) – It hasn’t been the best of summers for Jenny McCarthy: First the vocal anti-vaxxer was unceremoniously dumped from The View, then she was accused of slamming cousin Melissa McCarthy’s weight—a rumor that the blonder McCarthy denied to People. Now Jenny says her own 12-year-old son called the cops on her for a decidedly 21st-century crime: texting and driving. ABC News reports that McCarthy made the reveal about her "rule follower" son, Evan, on her Sirius radio show Dirty, Sexy, Funny.

"He called the police on me and said, 'My mom is texting and driving right now.' True story!" She confesses that she chucked his phone out the car window, and says Evan called 911 one other time on her when she went outside for a smoke and he couldn’t find her. "My mom abandoned me," McCarthy says he told the dispatcher. Hope Evan’s OK with his mom marrying Donnie Wahlberg. (For more on texting and driving, click here.)
