There were a lot of Real Housewives of Orange County viewers who were upset when Lauri Peterson left the show so she could focus on her son Josh Waring’s personal troubles away from the spotlight.

As much as Lauri was missed on the show, it became clear throughout the years that she definitely made the right choice when Josh continued getting into trouble over and over again. His most recent “issue,” if you can even call it that, was that he was arrested for attempted murder. He decided to represent himself during the preliminary hearing which didn’t go so well. Now Josh has to stand trial.

That is some heavy drama to deal with. And on top of all this, his daughter lives with Lauri. If he couldn’t even clean himself up for his daughter, then I really don’t know what to say about him.

This is has to be a very sad and difficult situation for Lauri to deal with, so it makes sense that she’s choosing to live away from the reality TV cameras. Sure, she would have ended up being the OG of the OC, but clearly there are some things that are more important than that.

We’ll never know why Josh thought it was a smart idea to represent himself at his preliminary hearing, but he did and things did not go well. Sure, they weren’t going to go well anyway since he was on trial for attempted murder with multiple witnesses verifying the same story about him recklessly shooting at people, but it still wasn’t the best way to go into the trial.

Now a judge has ordered Josh to stand trial for the attempted murder charges, according to an article from My News LA. And of course, Josh was encouraged to reconsider representing himself in the courtroom.

Not only did Josh shoot a gun at people, but he also started a police chase and crashed a car before having a stand off with the cops. Things are looking very grim for Josh and I’m sure Lauri’s heart is breaking over this whole ordeal.
