Bryson, who has made several appearances on the Bravo hit show, was released from a Gwinnett County Detention Center at 3:35 a.m. on Tuesday. “The charges are possession of a controlled substance and weapon by jail inmates,” according to law enforcement. “That means he had a weapon with him when he was arrested for possession of a controlled substance.”
This is Bryson’s second arrest in a span of one month. He was arrested on March 7 for possession of marijuana and failure to show up to court.
At the time, Nene called the arrest a “family issue,” releasing the following statement – “Like any parent, I am disappointed with the actions and arrest of my son, Bryson. My son is not the first young adult to experiment with marijuana, and he certainly won’t be the last. Still, as parents, this is a chance for us to have an open dialogue with him about the dangers of any substance abuse. I realize as a parent that my job is never done. And as I’ve tweeted, tough love was in order.”
A source told Radar the situation was complicated because Kim is still involved with ‘Big Poppa. The source continued, “He’s still married and he has played a big part in Kim’s life in recent years and she owes him a lot. She even has his initials ‘LN’ inked on her ring finger.” The source also revealed Big Poppa is a real estate tycoon with connections in the music industry, and is helping Kim make her music nightmares dreams come true.
Fast forward to a few days later, and RadarOnline is now reportingTracy has dumped Kim because she feels Kin is unwilling to totally commit to her.
Apparently Tracy was tired of Kim going back and forth between her and Big Poppa. “Tracey is about to move from Los Angeles to New York and she wanted Kim to make more of a commitment but she was unwilling to do so and they have broken up as a result,” the source added. “They are trying to remain friends but it looks like a long-term relationship between the pair is not going to pan out.”
Hmm, wonder who is leaking these exclusive stories to RadarOnline. Kim also tweeted this morning, revealing she begins filming the 3rd season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta today. Her love life will reportedly play a big story line.
Bryson was arrested earlier this month for possessing less than an ounce of marijuana, and for failure to show up to court. A source tells RadarOnline, “It has put pressure on her relationship with her husband Gregg Leakes who is not Bryson’s real father as they both know that he’s still drinking and smoking with his buddies.”
The source continues, “NeNe perceives herself as a real socialite in Atlanta and she does not like the fact that Bryson’s arrest generated bad publicity for her and she is worried that he might get into more trouble in the future.”
It seems the pressure on Nene’s marriage is coming from disagreeing with her husband on the best way to discipline Bryson, who is an adult. “It might make for good material for the new Housewives series but the reality is that it has put a lot of pressure on her relationship with her husband and she’s really worried that her son is falling in with a bad crowd,” adds the source.
Kim gave an exclusive interview to Life&Style magazine in which she admits she is bisexual. She also appears on this week’s cover of the magazine.
This is all the more interesting considering Kim denied having a romantic relationship with DJ Tracy just this month, even telling numerous media outlets that she was back with the still married Big Poppa aka Lee Najjar.
According to Kim, the reason she lied about denied her relationship with DJ Tracy was because she wasn’t ready to come out. We can only hope Tracy is well aware of Kim’s pathological ways.
Excerpts from Kim’s interview with Life&Style is below -
L&S: Can you pinpoint the moment when things became romantic? Kim: There were sparks, but [physically] it was a gradual situation. Tracy made the first move. Our first kiss was passionate and exciting.
L&S: Were you ever tempted to deny your relationship with Tracy? Kim: No. I’ve never denied anything. I don’t lie. I’m not embarrassed by anything I’ve ever done in my life. But I wasn’t ready to discuss it when the story broke. I hadn’t even had the chance to talk to my family about it. It was so unfair.
L&S: Do you feel you’re giving a voice to other bisexual parents? Kim: I’m among the millions of parents who have been in a gay or lesbian relationship. It hasn’t been an easy road lately, but I feel there are no mistakes in my life. Everything happens for a reason. To have the opportunity to speak for myself and to have people understand what I’m going through is really special. I myself was confused and scared at first. Being able to speak from my heart and get this all out, it’s a huge relief for me.

Bravo held their 2010 Upfront Party at theSkylight Studio this week in NYC, and all of our favorite Housewives as well as other Bravolebrities were sure to be in attendance.
The upfront party is when Bravo announces what is to come during their next season of television.
OK magazine was there and was able to report some behind the scenes moments. Representing the Real Housewives of Orange County were Alexis Bellino, Lynne Curtin and Gretchen Rossi, who did not seem phased by their new competition – the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The OC ladies joked that they did hear the Beverly Hills Housewives all have their own private jets.
The Real Housewives of NYC’s Jill Zarin, Ramona Singer and Alex McCord hit the red carpet together during which Jill would not reveal whether or not she and Bethenny will reconcile, simply saying “watch the show.”
Kelly Bensimon also hit the red carpet with LuAnn De Lesseps, and when asked how she thinks Bethenny will be as a mom, she replied, “I can’t really speak to that. I’m sorry.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta were the only housewives franchise to all walk the red carpet together. The Atlanta ladies are reportedly getting along better these days.
Bravo made some major announcements this week about what is to come next season. The biggest announcement came in the form of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
There had been numerous rumblings and reports but Bravo has finally confirmed the Beverly Hills Housewives series will be the fifth spin-off based on the original “Real Housewives of Orange County.” No word yet on when the show will premier.
As for the cast, it has been reported Paris and Nicky Hilton’s aunts, Kim and Kyle Richards, have been cast. Kim and Kyle are sisters of Paris’s mom, Kathy Hilton. They are also former child stars. Restaurant owner Lisa Todd, who owns the swanky Villa Blanca restaurant in Beverly Hills has also reportedly been cast as a third housewife.
Real Housewives of Atlanta – Bravo also confirmed the return of the Atlanta housewives, more importantly they confirmed all five housewives will be returning. Kim Zolciak made recent headlines when she revealed she had yet to sign on for season 3. According to a report, the women will each receive $150,000 for their third season.
Real Housewives of D.C. – Notably absent from Bravo’s announcements were the Real Housewives of Washington D.C. which should have finished filming last year. If you recall, there was a big scandal with the White House party crashers, Michaeleand Tareq Salahi, who were part of the cast though Bravo officially said they were simply auditioning them to be on the show. Michaele and her husband had filmed for months with other women, so it would be pretty much impossible for Bravo to air the season without them.
We also reported that Bravo was polling viewers last December to gage their opinion on the two. Guess we will all have to wait a little bit more to see about the DC Housewives.
This isn’t Bryson’s first run in with law, as he was arrested back in 2008 for a sexual offense. No word yet on what happened with that case. Perhaps his failure to appear charge might be in relation to that.
According to the Gwinnett County arrest records, Bryson Rashard Bryant was arrested for possessing less than an ounce of marijuana. He was arrested on Sunday, March 7th and has yet to be released.
The 3rd season of the Atlanta Housewives begins filming this month.
UPDATE: Nene released the following statement regarding her son’s arrest – “Like any parent, I am disappointed with the actions and arrest of my son, Bryson. Certainly, my husband and I will deal with this family issue in a private manner. My son is not the first young adult to experiment with marijuana, and he certainly won’t be the last. Still, as parents, this is a chance for us to have an open dialogue with him about the dangers of any substance abuse. I realize as a parent that my job is never done. And as I’ve tweeted, tough love was in order. Still, I ask that you respect our privacy during this trying time.”
It seems Kim Zolciak has decided she no longer needs the recent publicity she’s been receiving, and has now decided to come out and deny a lesbian relationship withDJ Tracy Young.
The interesting thing is the lesbian relationship rumors only started because of Kim’s doing. She was the one who insinuated she was dating the DJ back in December.
However, Kim has now decided to set the record straight. TMZ caught up with the Real Housewives of Atlanta star this week during which she denied the relationship. “Tracy’s a great friend of mine… I take pictures with a lot of girls,” said Kim. She’s “a great friend, I adore her” … just not in that way continued Kim.
