An ex-RHOC cast member is campaigning so hard to get her daughter on The Bachelor this season

This is the reality TV crossover we never knew we wanted.

Lauri Peterson, formerly a star on The Real Housewives of Orange County, is launching a Twitter campaign to get her daughter, Ashley Zarlin, on the upcoming season of The Bachelor. Please, please, please let this actually happen.

Zarlin was featured heavily in the early seasons of RHOC, most memorably for trashing Peterson's condo and being a huge spoiled brat. But a few years have gone by since then, and Zarlin is now the successful creative director behind Cheeky Minx, and we officially miss seeing her on reality TV.

Her mom clearly agrees. She retweeted a message from Bachelor producer Elan Gale saying casting is about to wrap up for the new season, along with the message, "What are you waiting for @ashleyzarlin?"

When a fan replied to Peterson's tweet asking, "how do we submit her for Nicks season ASAP?" Peterson replied with, "I'm not entirely sure! Someone....HELP!"

So Peterson is pushing hard for Zarlin to meet up with the new Bachelor, Nick Viall. But how does Zarlin feel about all of this? She's stayed quiet on social media, so we can't know for sure. But Zarlin and her mom have always been close, so maybe Peterson has a good idea of her taste in men?

All we can say is that our fingers are crossed that The Bachelor's producers will pull through and deliver on this.
