Kathy Wakile's Son Joseph Survives Car Crash 'Without a Scratch'
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Kathy Wakile's teenage son is okay after crashing his Jeep into a tree to avoid a deer over Christmas.

"He climbed out and got out, thankfully, without a scratch," Wakile, 50, told Bravo's Daily Dish in an interview Thursday. "And the deer was safe and Joseph was safe. And we met every rescue worker in the neighborhood and they were so wonderful. And they welcomed us to the neighborhood with a quick response and made sure everything is okay and, thankfully, he's okay. What a way to end an old year." 

Wakile – who is cousins with RHONJ costar Teresa Giudice – also posted Instagram photos of the accident.  

Wakile added that the scare "put everything into perspective" as a reminder to "just slow it down and take a breather and be thankful for all your blessings and your health and the safety of your family."
