George Peterson, who was frequently seen on earlier seasons of The Real Housewives of Orange County when he married previous cast member Lauri Waring, has been called out by his ex-wife, Gina Peterson.
The video above is the first one in a series that Gina posted to Youtube, giving her side of the story, accusing George of taking their four children away from her, taking her home and money, and abusing the children verbally and physically. She titled the series Parental Alienation and calls herself "The Real Ex-Housewife of Orange County."
To add some more craziness to this story, Gina is claiming that one of their daughters, Bria Peterson, has left home and is now missing, because of her father's constant abuse. In an article in the OC Weekly, it says that Gina's Facebook status currently asks "Where is Bria?" According to Gina, the fourteen-year old has been missing for two and a half months, and on January 7th, she went to the Newport Beach Police Department to tell investigators about the abuse. She was then sent to the Orangewood Children's Foundation, a shelter in Santa Ana. George later spoke to the investigators and told them that Bria invented the whole story and that she needed therapy. He convinced them to release her from the shelter and back into his custody. That same night, Bria disappeared.
George and Gina have a very tumultous history with each other. After their divorce in 2004, George was granted full custody of their four children, McKenzie, Slayte, Danyka, and Bria. Gina says "It became a war from the gate, he wanted full custody of kids that he didn't want, kids that he tore down every day. It was about not wanting to pay child support. They had dollar signs over their heads." Then, in 2008, George filed a restraining order against Gina, saying that she threatened to kill him and that she has a violent history with the children.
Gina's story is still somewhat unclear. Also, George could not be immediately reached to give his comment on this story. Whatever the case, it's sad.
