Some of the ladies from Real Housewives Of Atlanta got together to celebrate Porsha Williams‘s 34th birthday this weekend. NeNe Leakes and Phaedra Parks joined Porsha for a night out in Atlanta, that seemed to include plenty of laughs.
However birthday turn-up wasn’t the only reason the girls got together – rumor has it the entire affair was filmed for RHOA season 8. Prior to the party Porsha and Phaedra caught an Atlanta screening of Magic Mike XXL.

NeNe even gifted Porsha with a new pair of shoes! “Miss boo boo kitty @porsha4real wanted to be ratchet last nite and open her gift on the side walk LOL so I let her! Imma shoe Queen so I blessed her feet with a pair Manolo Blahnik,” NeNe shared.
“The turn up is real with this birthday princess @porsha4real and my girl @neneleakes Go Porsha! It’s your birthday! #lovethem,” added Phaedra.
There’s a lot of rumors about casting this season – and while it’s unclear if Porsha will reprise her role as a ‘Friend of the Housewives’ or return as a full-time Housewife (or not at all), one thing seems certain – Phaedra is definitely back!
Sources have spilled that fed-up with stale storylines and dull Housewives, Bravo was planning to let-go of several ladies and Phaedra may have been included in that list. I never believed these stories, given that of all the women Phaedra has one of the most natural storylines: her divorce and drama with Apollo, but also patching up her friendship with Kandi.
“Phaedra is definitely returning to the show and any reports to the contrary are nonsense,” her rep informed RumorFix. Bravo recently filmed Phaedra’s European vacation, in which the newly single-mom, her mother Pastor Regina Belle and a group of girlfriends traveled to Italy and France.

Additionally this weekend Phaedra was a guest at the Atlanta installment of Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper‘s A2A Tour.
In less positive news, NeNe faced another set-back regarding her son Bryson Bryant. NeNe recently celebrated her remarried anniversary with Gregg, which unfortunately coincided with Bryson being arrested in connection to a check forgery case. Bryson has battled drug and alcohol addiction and been arrested several times, including earlier this year.
On June 16th Bryson was nabbed in Douglas, GA when he was found with a fake check written to him by a known check forger. Bryson had not cashed the check so he could not be charged with check forgery, but investigators say Bryson provided them with a fake name (a misdemeanor), which he was charged with.
Bryson was arrested alongside a man named Inginac Walter Theodore – who was actually caught making phony Taco Bell paychecks (and printing them in a local McDonalds). His little payroll scam stole more than $35,000. ACJ.com reveals the two men were found in a vehicle together, and when questioned Bryson lied about his identity. Police later found Bryson’s real ID in Theodore’s possession.
Now I know Bryson is a 25-year-old married grown man (and father) and NeNe is not responsible for his behavior, but what a mess. And a shame for his children! NeNe has tried to straighten Bryce out in the past, to no avail. I wonder if this will feature as a storyline on RHOA next season, or if NeNe will continue flaunting her fabulous life of a zillion successes and not mention Bryson at all? Maybe another visit to Dr. Jeff is in order…
