by at . Comments

For once, drama involving someone on The Real Housewives of Atlanta is NOT being scripted.

Bryson Bryant, the oldest son of NeNe Leakes, was arrested on a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge on March 7.

Bryant is well known to any long-time Bravo viewer. During the first season of the show, Leakes looked at colleges with him.

“Like any parent, I am disappointed with the actions and arrest of my son, Bryson,” NeNe said in the statement. “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.”

We'll be glad to, but will NeNe do the same? The Real Housewives of Atlanta was picked up for a third season today, after all.

I love NeNe, I was a little dissapointed last season when she kept badgering kim and kandi, that was a biggg no no NeNe. I felt she had too much class for that kind of trash. NeNe you must realize that YOU represent a lot of women hewn out of the same background so when you behave badly you make it hard for us all, So personally I'll ask that 1. YOU PLEASE COME BACK, SCREW THE MONEY, WE NEED YOUR ICONIC VALUE 2. STOP CAT FIGHTING WITH LESSER CAST MEMBERS. YOU ARE THE REASON WHY WE WATCH!!!!! P.S. I even bought a wig like your do,,, girl so don't misbehave, I mean where else will I get my looks!
