Teaching your teenager to drive can be very nerve-racking, especially when all your husband wants to do is make inappropriate jokes in the backseat. Don’t believe us? Just ask The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Kathy Wakile.

In the sneak peek for Season 5, Episode 2 below, Kath takes her son Joseph out for an informative spin in the family car, but she has a hard time keeping the teen’s attention thanks to Rich’s constant stream of sometimes off-color jokes.

Kathy tries to offer her son helpful advice like, “If you have anybody that’s driving with you and is a nuisance in the backseat, tell them to get out,” while Rich playfully adds “even if she’s topless.” Considering that Kathy had to ask her hubby to cut out the jokes and fooling around several times with little to no avail, we think we’re starting to see part of why this beloved RHoNJ couple goes through a rough patch later this season.

To check out Kathy and Rich’s tense (but funny!) driving lesson with Joseph, watch the sneak peek below.
