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 –

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.

In other Atlanta news, according to a new report by MediaTakeOut, Nene Leakes, 42, will soon become a grandmother.
The site states that Bryson Bryant, who has been shown on the Bravo show as having no job and dropping out of school, has gotten his girlfriend Ashley pregnant. The source of the story isn’t the most credible so only time will tell if the story is indeed true. Photos of Bryson with his reported pregnant girlfriend were also posted. Those are below.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S EPISODE AND THE REPORT OF NENE BECOMING A GRANDMA SOON?
The reality star had remained mum on the nose job issue until now. Nene appeared on the The Ricky Smiley Morning Show and gave a non denial statement on her recent nose job –
“You shouldn’t believe everything that you hear. Don’t worry about what I’m doing over here. I am very recognizable; don’t believe everything that you hear. Understand that a lot of the pictures are photoshopped and the pictures that I saw of me [were] from Sheree’s “Dancing with the Stars” night and we were wearing fun make up. I had make up on the top, I had make up on the bottom, I had make up on my nose and all of a sudden my nose is very very small. My nose was contoured at the dancing event and everyone is making a big deal out of it.”
Is she really expecting us to believe she did not have a nose job? Can’t make much sense of the above statement so will move on. A report by RadarOnline also claims this is actually Nene’s third nose job. Nene also states that she and hubby Gregg Leakes are doing fine despite separation rumors. As for her son Bryson Bryant, who has been arrested twic this year, she says he’s doing fine as well and is back to club promoting.
In other Atlanta Housewives news, those pesky rumors/stories that Lisa Wu Hartwell is leaving the show refuses to go away. The latest is now that Bravo is planning on phasing Lisa out of the show this season.
“The producers of the show wanted to weed someone out, that person being Lisa Wu Hartwell, as they have added the two new cast members. She isn’t filming as regular as the other ladies of the show and will appear only on minimal episodes, as opposed to the other ladies… It wasn’t Lisa’s choice to end her contract, it was the producers as she no longer lives any where close to the city of Atlanta and her character on the show was quite a bore last year!”
If this story is true, must say it makes sense. Lisa was a bit boring last season. The third season of the Atlanta Housewives is still being filmed.
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.”
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.
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.”
