'Real Housewives' Kid: Drug Bust Groundhog Day

7/16/2009 1:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Josh Waring Real Housewives Downside: Josh Waring was arrested again for possession of narcotics and drug paraphernalia. Upside: This time his mother, Lauri Waring of "Real Housewives of Orange County," wasn't the one who turned him in.

Josh was busted at 2:30 PM today at his home in Orange County and is currently being booked in an OC jail.

Waring was sentenced to 240 days back in September of '08 for possession of heroin and ecstasy and an intent to sell -- after his mother found the drugs and contacted the police.

He was released in February but is still on probation -- so he's pretty much screwed.

Sadly addicts have feelings ONLY for their drug of choice. Not family, friends, loved ones or even SELF matters once your an addict. It's a one way street to death and hell. We're losing to many kids and loved ones to drugs. Wake up and look around at your own families. How many loved ones do you have that are addicts? God help our nation, these are the people that are going to care for us and make the laws in our old age. God help American!

Geez, what else can Lauri do at this point? It seems she should enroll him in some sort of strict boot camp, long term- anything else this kid isn't going to learn. Oh well, best of luck to Lauri & Josh.

This kid is such a retard. He needs to continue to sit his a$$ in jail until he either learns how not to attract the police, or til he's 80. If he would put just a tiny bit of effort in to making his life better, you know mommy would help pay for everything. He's the dumbest kind of drug addict; one with all the opportunity in the world and blowing it.

Well,this kid doesn't know how lucky he's had it. He's been given many chances to clean up his act. He has a 'No one can touch me I can do whatever I want' kind of attitude, just check out his Myspace page,it's shocking! On it he's acting all gangsta w/friends and flashing money,he knows that when he gets into his binds his parents have the jack to take care of it! If he didn't have the luxury of living in Coto and other nice parts of the OC and actually had to spend 5 mins in Compton or Watts,he'd be begging for his momma and wouldn't be so tough like he's poses to be! It's unbelievable how he just doesn't get it. But who's the tough guy now,sitting in jail! Were the drugs really worth it? I should say NOT!! Note to self: Wake the hell up!

Turn this kid over to his dad!!!!!!!! I think it's his turn! Living with a BILLIONAIRE is obviously not working!!!!!! He was better off when his mom was a single parent and not a BILLIONAIRE!!!!!!!! Good luck!

It is sad. Lauri never gave a rats a*s about this kid. Read articles in the OC Register - she was a terrible mother..and she really could care less about him. Especially during the first bust - she was too busy preparing for her wedding, like the gold digger that she is.

This kid never had a chance. He started drugs from a very young age - something should have been done way back then, but her mom was too busy trying to score a rich man, partying and shopping to deal with what he was going through.

Of course, Lauri will let him rot - that's what she did the last time around.. she left in jail and continued with her wedding preparations.

I feel sorry for the kid.

just the facts    

Some people don't understand the world of an addict. They think it's just a problem that can be fixed with a jail sentence or a stay in rehab. There is a lot of tough talk about throwing him in jail or letting him move to his father's care. This will do nothing to get him of the smack. Methadone might help but maybe not. You need to be an addict to understand one.
Get this kid to a Doctor who can help…

Dude needs a good beat down. He's a grown man now. Mommy needs to cut the purse strings and let him drift. It's hard to do but as the former wife of a man addicted to meth, drugs replace everything you have including your soul. He's had every opportunity to change and chooses not to.

OMG-ness, I feel for this young man, from one addict to another, it's hard to see such a young man go down the road he's on, take him to N/A meetings, get him a sponser, make him do the steps theres only 12. I garantee he'll find himself again. Yet, for now the best place for him is in jail, so he can think maybe this is his rock bottom,
Go get'em tiger, you can beat this if I can...

You all need to leave Laurie alone with your rude comments! She is a very good mom who has tried EVERYTHING form love and support to tough love (calling the cops on Josh). That is the hardest thing to do! I am sick and tired of GOOD parents getting the blame for their teen/young adult childrens' choices, addictions and troubles. GIVE ME A BREAK! I hope Josh gets clean. I hope Laurie and the rest of the family are hanging in there. Prayers for them all.

Very sad. I think deep down Josh is a good kid. Divorce can have lifelong effects on the children. Josh is a shining example of that.
