Drama seems to follow Lauri Waring even though she has already left The Real Housewives of Orange County. The multiple-divorced mother of three is once again the subject of controversy now that her son, Josh, has been arrested (yet again) for possession of narcotics and drug paraphernalia.
TMZ reports that Josh Warning was busted at 2:30pm last Thursday after deputies went to his Orange County home to do a routine probation check. There were no drugs on sight but an equipment was found and is now being tested, according to Sheriff's Department spokesman Jim Amormino.
This is clearly a violation of Josh's probation. In September 2008, Josh was sentenced to 240 days for possession of heroin and Ecstasy with intent to sell. He was arrested after his mother Lauri Waring found the drugs and called the Orange County Sheriff's Department.
Josh was released from county jail in February, but is now back behind bars.
Like his mother Laura, Josh also appeared on The Real Housewives of Orange County. After spending time in juvenile detention during the first season of the show, Josh moved into Waring's Ladera Ranch townhouse in season 4, however, his mothr Laura clamied that Josh broke a number of "house rules" and she evicted him.
After leaving his mother's townhouse, Josh moved in with Laura's current husband George's ex-wife, Gina and didn't appear in the credits as part of Waring's family, with Laura alluding that she doesn't see him anymore. By the conclusion of season 3, which featured an extended psychotherapy session attended by Laura and Josh where they achieved resolution in their conflicted mother-son relationship, Josh was included in his mother's lavish wedding ceremony to George as his grandmother's escort down the marital aisle.
In the fourth season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Laura decided to leave the show to focus her attention on her family, specifically citing Josh's spiral into heroin addiction.
