NeNetellsIn Touch Weekly that Bryson kept it a secret from her for months and that’s why she denied reports that he had fathered a child.
“I only found out about everything because I ran into Ashley when she was more than six months along,” NeNe insists. “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.”
NeNe is speaking out defending her decision to let Bryson learn from his mistakes. “I believe in Never Making the Same Mistake Twice. With that said, I decided that tough love was better than no love at all. I decided to leave Brice in jail a few extra days to teach him a lesson,” NeNe explained on her Bravo blog.
“Brice didn’t steal because he was in need, he simply stole because he was giving in to peer pressure, seeking attention, looking for something to do, and being silly. Whatever the case may be, I felt a lesson needed to be learned!” I quite agree!
And further defending her decision, NeNe confronted allegations that she was ignoring Brice’s needs! “I know there are parents that would have chosen a different route, as Peter [Thomas]suggested, but I felt this was what my child needed. My goal is always to encourage my son.”
“I’m no different from any other parent; I want the absolute best for my son and always want see him on top! Brice, mommy loves you! We all make mistakes, just don’t carry them forward and you will be fine, my love!”
NeNe also tackles some of the other controversies, and she is just tickled by Kim Zolciak and Sheree Whitfield acting like the best of friends! “Kim saying she’s known Shereefor ten years. LOL! I introduced them at the beginning of all this about five years ago,” NeNe insists.
“Kim saying she and Sheree don’t talk behind each other’s back. Aren’t you the same person that said Sheree writes bad checks and returns the clothes she wears? Didn’t Sheree try pulling off your wig and said things about you dating married men! I could go on and on, but I’ll wait until…”
And NeNe is very amused by the state of Chateau Sheree aka a big ol’ hole in the ground with some overgrown bushes! “I was laughing out loud when Phaedra [Parks] said there’s not a trespassing sign out and the house won’t be ready by Christmas! You’ve got to love it!”
Moving on, Kandi Burruss is calling Sheree out as an instigator. “I’m sick of this whole black baby drama,” Kandi snaps, adding that her opinion hasn’t changed. She still doesn’t believe Kim would have gone on the trip. “It doesn’t matter if the orphanage was in Africa or Asia, I just don’t see it and I really don’t see what the big deal was about what I said.”
Kandi is still confused about why Sheree is twisting what happened and making the situation into something it’s not. “I don’t know why Sheree made it into this race issue. Sitting there going back and forth with them at the lunch was frustrating and pointless to me,” Kandi writes in her Bravo blog.
“Sheree was sticking with her story about the black baby comment, and she already had Kim sucked into it. They didn’t get nor did they want to understand my point of view. Of course Kim is going to say she would’ve gone. No one wants to look bad or come off as insensitive.”
One thing that Kandi is really furious about is Kim’s comments about her daughter Riley! “I was not feeling the scene where Kim was talking to her landlord/interior designer about her keeping Riley when A.J passed. I mean my daughter has spent the night at her house plenty times. Was there any reason she had to go on about that occasion?,” Kandi wonders.
“Seriously, don’t even bring my daughter’s name up when you’re trying to make a point about a negative subject. I will let your ass have it in the worst way. Y’all haven’t seen that side of me, and hopefully you never will, but putting my daughter’s name out there will definitely bring it out!” Um… whoa. Yeah, I think it’s time for Kandi to leave this show. She is too good for this drama and unlike most of these women has a legitimate and lucrative career!
Finally, Marlo Hampton recently celebrated her birthday with an elegant and sophisticated (just like Sheree!) dinner party. The woman who is anything but elegant and sophisticated, apparently patched things up with Sheree’s bestie Lawrence Washington after the gay slur she made in South Africa. According to The Young, Black, and Fabulous blog, Marlo spent her actual birthday in Europe, but her ATL birthday party was thrown by her good friend and interior decorator, Michel Boyd, in his home.
And despite her close friendship with NeNe, she did not appear to be in attendance. Photos of Marlo’s birthday bash are below. I must say, I love her pants!

Following a TMZ report last year that Bryson was arrested after shoplifting razors from a local Walmart, there are numerous reports this morning that Bryson was hospitalized following a brutal bar fight.
Sources tell the StraightFromTheA blog that Bryson got into an altercation, at a local Atlanta night spot during an argument with another patron over a girl.
Words were reportedly exchanged and the two young men came to blows, resulting in Bryson being escorted to the hospital with several head wounds and a broken jaw. Other reports state Bryson also suffered multiple broken bones in his face. Yikes.
Nene however took to her twitter late yesterday to issue a non-denial denial. The Nene tweeted: “Don’t get me wrong, I love 2 b prayed 4 but sendin me well wishes about a bunch of lies is just crazy! The sh*t yall read & believe.”
Unfortunately for Nene, she forgot to get the denial memo to her son Bryson, who tweeted that he was indeed in the hospital and on pain killers. Bryson tweeted: “Soon as the doc bring wat i need i go 2 sleep,” later adding: “Yay dey jus walked n wit my meds ill be on da moon in 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 q.”
Alrighty. Moving on to Kim Zolciak and her former assistant Sweetie Hughes! If you recall, the two had a falling out late last year for reasons they never revealed, which led to Kim firing her. The duo, however, appear to have made up last month.
Well, according to a new report/blind item, a source is claiming Kim fired Sweetie because Sweetie allegedly stole from her and brought people into her home. It gets even better, as the source states Kim would never speak negatively of Sweetie, because Sweetie has a ton of dirt on her! Now that I believe!
“One of the blonder, paler-skinned Real Housewives Of Atlanta is rumored to have parted ways with her long-time, weave-wearing, darker-skinned assistant. After noticing that some random items were “missing” and seeing some unauthorized charges on her credit card the reality-show diva filed charges with local authorities and suspected that the assistant could be involved even though police apprehended the culprit. We’ve seen first hand on the show that there has been some tension between the two women because of laziness on the part of said employee. It is also rumored that the assistant has a new boyfriend that she brought to her surgically-enhanced employers house, and that was the straw that broke the cougar’s back!
Although she is said to be furious with her ex-assistant, she will not speak ill of her because the assistant has TONS of dirt on her and she don’t want those problems!”
Ai ya ya. All very interesting!

After Sheree accused Nene of going behind her back to snag a hosting gig, Nene, who feels her castmates are jealous of her because of her fame, is now firing back in her latest Bravo blog, calling Sheree one of her biggest haters.
“Sheree made claims that were simply false! She has been one of my biggest haters, and I find that sad!” wrote the very, very rich Nene. “Of all the ladies, she has had the least success and her jealousy has reached an all-time high. So sad! Now I don’t want to spend too much time talking about someone that’s not even relevant, and I don’t owe anyone an explanation for the favor God has shown me in my life!”
Nene also defended her decision to buy her troubled 21-year-old son Bryson Bryant a car… with cash money… since she is now very rich… all due to her appearance on Celebrity Apprentice. If you recall, Bryson has been arrested a number of times on drugs and theft charges.
“My boys mean the world to me, and I want them to have better than I did. My son Bryson has made a few mistakes like any 21-year-old might. Sometimes good people make bad choices, but that doesn’t mean they’re bad! It means they are human. We went out to buy Bryson a car, which I was happy to do. I bought his car with cash money simply because I could!” wrote the Nene.
Sheree also blogged about the drama making it clear Nene did indeed try to jeopardize her hosting gig.
Sheree wrote: “To elaborate, NeNe called Tyrone several times complaining about him booking me for the amount I was being paid, all the while on speakerphone, obviously unbeknownst to her. She stated that since he knew her first, he should have booked me through her! She went on to say that he shouldn’t pay me the agreed upon rate, because she could have gotten me for a much lower rate, which would have created more money for her. She was saying that she should make the most out of all of us yada yada yada!”
Sheree continued, “Excuse me? You are getting the monetary amount you asked for. Why would you try to stop or get in the way of someone else? What’s the problem? Why would she feel the need to do this? Greed, envy, jealousy… This info comes from someone whom I’m very close to and I consider him to be one of my dear, loyal, and trustworthy friends, Charlie Mack. I was actually going to call him as well, but NeNe took off before I could! I wonder why? The funny thing is I felt that there could be some truth to what Charlie was saying, because I have experienced this type of undermining, manipulating behavior in the past from NeNe.”
Sheree goes on to make it clear she does not consider Nene to be a good person. “Bottom line it doesn’t matter what the dollar amount is, it’s the principle! If someone can smile in your face while stealing behind your back, that’s a conniving, evil person that I do not care to have around me… My mother always told me, ‘The people you look down upon on your way up will be the same people you look up to on your way down,’” added Sheree.
So the question is -

TELL US – WHO DO YOU BELIEVE WHEN IT COMES TO THE HOSTING GIG? NENE OR SHEREE?
Cops reveal Nene’s son Bryson Bryant was arrested around 9 p.m. last night in Georgia for shoplifting. And what did Bryson steal? Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Bryson is accused of stealing two Mach 3 razors from a Walmart.
The razors are reportedly worth $14 a piece. Bryson was busted by the Walmart security team.
In addition to the shoplifting charge, Bryson, who remains in a Gwinnett County jail, was also charged with a probation violation. It appears the probation violation stems from one of his arrests last year for possession of weed. Bryson’s bond is listed at $301.25.
While the Nene has yet to officially comment on Bryson’s arrest, she did make the following tweet hours ago – “My day just got started off wrong! Damn.” Damn indeed. The fourth season of the RHOA continues to film so it’s likely this will be on the show.
Nene Leakes is coming out swinging after a report by the MediaTakeOut website reported her as being pregnant.
Not only did the site state the Real Housewives of Atlanta star was pregnant, but it also stated Nene was uncertain of who the father of her unborn child was. “”NeNe suspects that it’s her husband’s child, but she’s been with that man [NFL BALLER CHALES GRANT] too,” claimed the report.
Well Nene, 42, took to her twitter page to set the record straight. “PREGNANT? I’ve said it b4 & I’ll say it AGAIN…I WON’T B HAVIN A CHILD WIT NO MAN! SHOP IS CLOSED! WRONG HOUSEWIFE,” tweeted Nene before adding, “Did they say Charles? They love saying his name! Problem is we never had sex! For 14 years it’s been all about Greg Leakes!”
The story is even more scandalous due to the fact that several media outlets including Radar Online have confirmed Nene’s 20-year-old son Bryson Bryant is expecting a baby with his girlfriend.
NFL player Charles Grant, who has been leaked to Nene for the past year, also called into an Atlanta radio station and stated the following -
“It’s not true. I don’t know the young lady in that fashion. All I know is that she does a show that’s very popular. For the last year-and-a-half, two years, I’ve wondered why my name has been coming up with this young lady every time something happens, but if you really know me, you know it ain’t that type of party.I don’t know nothing about the lady besides her name and seeing her out and about a couple of times. We don’t even know each other like that.”
And finally, Nene’s husband Gregg Leakesmade an appearance on Atlanta station 92Q to talk about his relationship with her. “It’s a TV show, it’s designed for ratings. Unfortunately, in our case, my wife and I are going through a storm. We elected to tell people we are going through a real storm… None of that is made up, it’s real,” said Gregg about their marital problems.
“I don’t know where our situation will go but I am confident that we both know how to be good parents. I am confident that we will always remain friends. I don’t know where we’ll end up. We’re good. We’re okay with it,” said Gregg on the future of his marriage. The full interview is below -
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE PREGNANCY RUMORS AND GREGG’S COMMENTS?
A week after MediaTakeOut first reported that Nene Leakeswas about to become a grandma courtesy of her son Bryson Bryant, RadarOnline is now confirming the story.
According to Radar, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star “flipped-out” after she discovered son Bryson had gotten his girlfriend pregnant. “NeNe threw a ‘real hissy fit’ when she found out and she really laid-into Bryson,” a source close to the family tells Radar.
Nene, 42, and Bryson, 20, have endured a strained relationship following Bryson’s two arrests this year including an arrest for possession of marijuana while visiting an inmate at the Gwinnett County Jail in Atlanta.
“Not only does she hate the idea of becoming a grandmother in her forties, she believes that she will be left picking-up the tab for the baby because her son still lives at home and does not have a steady income. Bryson is still dating the girl, who is a local from Atlanta, but by no means is it a steady and secure relationship,” says a source.
The source adds that “NeNe believes that neither of them is mature enough to be parents but it’s understood that the girl is definitely going to have the baby.”
Nene is now reportedly demanding Bryson’s girlfriend take a paternity test because she’s not convinced the child is actually his.
