'Real Housewives' Kid Gets 240 Days in Real Jail

9/17/2008 2:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joah WaringJosh Waring, the son of Lauri Waring from "The Real Housewives of Orange County," was sentenced Monday to 240 days in the pokey for possession of heroin and ecstasy and an intent to sell.

But here's the rub: Josh was actually turned in by his own mother! Apparently Lauri showed up to her condo where Josh was living, and found drugs on the premises. She contacted the cops, even telling them where her son's hangout spots were and he was busted the next day.

Guess that's OC tough love!

I wonder why this kid is screwed up, His mother is a gold digger who acts like a whore on national tv and would rather go to parties at the playboy mansion than discipline him.

As a life long Orange Countian, I'd like to take this opportunity to tell the rest of the world that this show in no way depicts the majority of us. Most of us are such the polar opposites of these people. Please do not believe everything you see!

Lauri, you poor brave soul. Good for you, a son in jail is better than a dead son. You made the right choice. The boy needs to learn before it is too late.

she did the right thing and has been trying very hard to help him get clean and sober since the show has started but the kid is out of control and maybe this is the harsh reality he needs.

I have been in the same situation as Lauri, and it is terrifying to know your child is facing death if something drastic is not done. I applaud her for taking the measure she felt she had to for the safety of her child. Better in jail where you know he is safe than planning his funeral. Do not judge her unless you have been in this horrifying situation.

Finally, a parent who is not afraid to be a parent instead of their kid's "friend." It could not have been easy but doing the right thing sometimes is not. More power to Lauri. Hope her son gets the help he needs.

She is trying to save his life! Lauri, no matter how tired you get, DO NOT GIVE UP! Fight for his survival. I fought the battle for 3 years. My son is in College full time,and working a part time job now!!.... Who my son was and what he was doing was never who he was. Tell Josh, this is NOT WHO HE IS> Do Not give up the fight.

Love to watch the snobby kids fall hard. He probably thought he was down and all. Can't wait to see how he handles the real men in general pop.

He'll be crying Mom Mom in no time.

No sympathy here

let's hope his "mother" (and I use the term loosely) and step father don't turn up on Season 4 of RHOOC crying crocodile tears about poor Josh and parading the kid around like a prop. These people are beyond the pale. Of course her face doesn't move anymore so she probably won't be able to "act' anyway.

I have watched this woman try and act like a mother but like her acting on the show it is terrible---her children have got to see how she only cares about money--believe me she would not have married her current husband if he did not have money. Hopefully Josh will get the help he needs while in jail and come out a better person because he is not getting it at home

She doesn't seem like a good role model, but this time she made the right choice.

good for her. Most parents wouldn't do this, then you get the Lindsay Lohans of the world - Dina knew and did nothing. besides this Laurie woman may have ended up in jail too if she hadn't said anything. it was HER condo and he was just living there.
