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.
