"Real" Kid Real Busted

6/3/2008 5:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Josh Waring, the wayward and oft-troubled son of "The Real Housewives of Orange County" star Lauri Waring, was busted late Sunday night for possession of heroin and ecstasy and intent to sell.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Waring was hanging out in front of a Comfort Inn in Laguna Beach when he was approached by police cruiser and took off running.

When cops caught up with him, they say he was high as a kite. Cops executed a search warrant at the hotel, and allegedly found a large amount of drugs in his room.

He's currently cooling his heels in the Orange County jail, charged with two felony counts of possession and intent to sell both heroin and ecstasy, a misdemeanor count of unauthorized possession of a hypodermic needle and being under the influence of heroin -- also a misdemeanor.

Can someone please forward the picture of Lauri having a rip-roaring time in New York Last Night to Josh c/o the Orange County Jail? He needs a picture of his mom smiling and happy for his cell wall!

Here is a statement made by Lauri Waring taken off her Bravo Blog at the end of Season 3.

"I just think as far as, the thing that I would actually like to address is that some people have attacked me saying I exploited Josh for my fame, which I think is hilarious because when I agreed to do this series three years ago, I sat down with the kids and laid it all out on the line and said, “Do you want to be a part of this?” And the kids were all over it. They really wanted to do it."

Ok, Lauri, was Josh aware of the fact you were going to tell the viewers about his sordid past? Yeah, right. He is a smart and articulate young man and had he known what awaited him I am sure, like you said, he was, "all over THAT and he really wanted to do it." Not only that but you also stated in the reunion show closing S-1 that you wished you had not esposed Josh's story like you did. So, tell me, why at the closing of S-3 did you go completely overboard with the shocking "INTERVENTION" scenes!

Sorry, honey, you dig yourself in deeper and deeper each season every time you open that over inflated mouth. I feel so sorry for your kids. Tell me, why aren't you home now instead of in New York flaunting and selling yourself and the show, the same show that ruined your son's life? You and George are just as addicted to your selves and the flash of a camera lens as your son is to drugs....Both you and George, my dear, need an Intervention of your own if there is any hope for your kid's. It would do a world of good for your "Blended Family" if George would pony up and check both of you into the Betty Ford Center. I would personally send flowers.

Real OC Wife.    

Last night I flew back from New York to Orange County and had the misfortune to be sitting behind none other than Lauri Waring and her husband. Firstly let me tell you that this woman has a totally plasctic face! it does not move when she talks!Her conversation with her Mullet headed Sugar Daddy consisted of the following.
1.How much press and exposure she got from the trip to NY to do some show with the other wives and the Wives of NY.She felt that she didnt get enough, find that hard to believe.
2.Complaining about how much Tamra copies her style and how trashy she appears ( figure that one out).She was also pissed at Vicky for being so dominating and hogging the mike.
3How she needs to appear to the press and on the show when talking about her sons arrest and drug use. She actually said the following. " I have had it with him he is so selfish. How could he do this to me". By the way she intends to show that she has struggled as a single mother to raise her kids and tried everything to help Josh, she is the victim in all of this and Josh must hit the bottom before he will get better. Duh! Me thinks he hit bottom when she put her kids on this dumb show.
4. She is very mad a Ashley over something, not sure what it was but she intended to be sitting down with her soon to "set some boundries".
5. She also talked about being in court next week and how she felt she could use her sons drug problem to help her in her case, not sure what that is but I assume its with her ex husband.
All in all it ruined my flight but never the less confirmed to me what a repugnent self absorbed hag this woman is and also what a wimp her Soul Mate is.

Hey Pizza Girl, aka 007Agent, Melinduh, Delilah, Harold the Great, and Gawd only knows who else...Too bad you don't spend as much time with YOUR own kids, especially your young impressionable boys, instead of living vicariously through these no-body hags and their mullet head Soul Mates, as someone else described here. Ya know, Missy, there are med's available to you, too, for your out-of-control obssessions over reality show members and control issues. Why not give it a try and raise your boys by spending the same amount of time on them as you do the Internet and stalking habits and prevent having to see your boys faces in mug shots like Josh. You know very well what happens to kids who are left to their own devices. You say your husband raises your boys? Nice excuse. Since when did kids not need their mother just as much? What a tool!

Good post weezle. However, Josh's Mother and Father are too self-absorbed and bitter to put their differences, lives and craving for fame aside to help Josh. He's SUCH an inconvenience, isn't he? But, hey, he's an adult, right! Ya, 19 years old and he should know better! Those two will have Josh's OD'd life and his blood on their hands.

Here is a link to an article from last nights A-list Red Carpet event in New York. It speaks volumes in terms of Lauri's priorities. This is the statement that is included in the article.

"The California girls also had a big laugh over our recent report that Ramona Singer threw a gift-lounge tantrum after she was refused four free pairs of Luxottica sunglasses. "Honey, we don't have to beg. We have the money to buy!" laughed Lauri Waring."

Pretty damned sad and pathetic if you ask me!

I want Josh to go on Dr. Drew's show Celebrity Rehab so he can break-down and tell us the REAL story about his family without his Mom hovering over him and bribing him so he would say nice things about her. There are some ugly, UGLY secrets in this family. That fake, evil woman and his arrogant, bastard of a father need to be exposed for enabling Josh and being one of the MAIN reasons he is where he is now. Scary thing was, Josh was SO screwed up before Lauri married that other bastard, she brought him from the fire to the frying pan with THAT guy. All of HIS kids are on the same road as Josh. The parents should be locked up for what they have done to these kids. It's pathetic and tragic. Child protective services needs to step in NOW!
