Yesterday news broke that Nene Leakes eldest son, Bryson Rashard Bryant, spent 90 days in jail and six weeks in rehab at the end of 2014. I have some sort of alien in my belly punching me from my insides in my belly and just could not be bothered to make sense of all of the varied stories on what happened. Today, I finally read the court documents.
First, let’s review the timeline of KNOWN arrests of Bryson Rashard Bryant
March 2010 booked on a pot charge. Arrest 3 days later for failure to appear. (Age 20)
July 2011 shoplifting razors from Wal*Mart and probation violation. (Age 21)
June 2012 arrested for driving on a suspended license. (Age 22)
July 2012 arrested for probation violation.
I’ve already discussed the first few scenes of this episode, here. Phaedra and Kandi snark on Chuck. And Mallory seems to have an ulterior motive for showing up. It is not “mending fences” as she says, it’s more like running Peter out of Cynthia’s life.
Mostly, I actually feel sorry for Kenya. Whether her dad really is this critical or just doing it on national TV because it is in the script, he is just awful. I’m no Kenya fan, but I am starting to feel some compassion for her based on the crappy hand she was dealt in the parents department.
Porsha met with her divorce lawyer to discuss the fact that they were unable to mediate and will be letting the judge decide the settlement. I thought it was funny that the attorney actually pointed out to her that she would need to pay them from her settlement. Continue reading

Why is Nene chatting with Vivica Fox? What was the point of that? Is Vivica like really hard up for air time or something? That made no sense. Now Nene is taking her aunt dress shopping at some sort of pic-n-save store. She claims she doesn’t have for time this. Give your aunt the Neimans card, call the personal shopper and tell her to put her in a dress.
All of Nene’s kids and Gregg’s kids go out to a Mexican restaurant. Even the glambaby came. Nene is going on and on about how important family is but she will not even acknowledge the existence of her sisters. Now her dad has decided not to come to the wedding.
The boys all went out to party. My DVR is now paused on Peter dancing with some big earringed ho and staring at her chest. I’m gonna call it right now that this episode will piss Cynthia off. I wouldn’t mind the stripper thing (which I assume is coming) but going out to the club and dancing with other women is unacceptable. Some of these chicks are stripper and some are not. I’d like to point out they are not at one of the nicer strip clubs in Atlanta either. This is straight up Skanksville. Hmm, it’s called the Shark Bar & Grille. They should probably just all it the Tuna Bar & Grille. Why would anyone want to eat in a place with wall to wall skanks? Then they get on the party bus with three skanks in tow and spank them all the way to their next destination. Looks like they stripped them butt naked too! Continue reading

Right off the bat I am wondering where that house is. Atlanta? LA? And whose house is it? I love that Gregg says he doesn’t want to go back to the basement. CONFIRMING I was right when I said they never separated. Already with the scripted scenes for the wedding dress/old wedding montage set up. By the way, Nene has executive producer credits on this… meaning she can control what makes the editing cut. Hints of Nene not wanting her family there by saying she doesn’t want her Dad to walk her down the aisle again. Or her sisters in the wedding.
When the hell did they drive down the main drag of Athens when the sun was out and there was that little traffic? That restaurant used to have the best blackened red fish back when it was Harry Bissett’s. Nene is completely unable to be serious with Greg, even now. Continue reading
In the latest issue of the tabloid to the housewives, In Touch, Nene Leakes has acknowledged that she is in fact a grandmother. Nene’s son Bryson has been rumored to have knocked-up more than one young lady in the last three years or so. Gossip websites seem to report that Nene is soon to be a grandmother at least once a year. But this is the first actual child that Nene has acknowledged. One assumes she had a DNA test run. Anyway, it’s a girl and her name is Bri’Asia. This is not teen pregnancy we are talking about here. Bryson is 22 and baby mama Ashley is 21. Here’s what Nene had to say to In Touch:
I only found out about everything because I ran into Ashley when she was more than six months along. I said, ‘You look pregnant.’ and she said, ‘Hasn’t Bryson told you?’ But he hadn’t because he knew that I wouldn’t approve of him having a child so young. I didn’t feel like he was ready for such a big responsibility. I was his age when I had him, so I know how tough it is. I didn’t want him to make the same mistakes that I did. I needed to let it sink in. I always wanted to have a girl and now I have one! She’s just adorable. I paid for everything in the nursery… the clothing, the diapers,little dresses, sparkly headbands, and Gucci shoes. I don’t want her to feel strapped. We just love her!
The little bundle of Joy was born in mid June according to Nene. Which means Daddy was in jail within two weeks of her birth. But she has Gucci shoes and really, what more does a little girl need?
Y’all are determined to make me investigate this latest mug shot for Nene Leakes son, Bryson Bryant. Here is the real story. Bryson was arrested on June 25 for driving with a suspended license. Bail was set at $700. He bonded out and went home. Then on the evening of July 4th he was picked up again and booked in on a probation violation. Looking at the public info, it appears that it was related to the previous driving on a suspended license charge. Apparently, when the driving charge made its way to his probation officers desk, his PO had him picked up and thrown in jail. Public records indicate he is still incarcerated. Meanwhile Nene and Gregg are at the Essence Festival in New Orleans so he’s just going to have to sit there for awhile.
Bryson has had two mugshots in the last two weeks. The blue shirt one is from June 25 and the black shirt one is from July 4th (technically he was booked in in the wee hours of July 5th. Bryant was arrested twice in 2010 (pot, weapons,failure to appear) once in 2011 (the infamous Wal*Mart Shoplifting incident) and twice so far in 2012. It seems that he is going to keep thinking he is above the law. The kid is barely 21 years old!
With mommy and daddy both out of town, there is no one around to bail him out this time. Oh wait! Maybe that chick that claims she is fucking Gregg can run over and get her boy out of the big house. Half y’all think Bryson is the one she’s involved with anyway. Should I go stake out the jailhouse? :)
