NeNe Leakes of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” either is having trouble at home or is working hard at boosting her brand.
“The arrest really upset NeNe as she knows her son is hanging out with a bad crowd,” said the report, which says young Bryant has dropped out of college and is now working as a club promoter. “It has put pressure on her relationship with her husband, Greg Leakes, who is not Bryson’s real father as they both know that he’s still drinking and smoking with his buddies.”
The quote most likely to get the side-eyes rolling in Atlanta: “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.”
And here’s the money shot: “It might make for good material for the new Housewives series,” the Radar source continues.
Gee, you think?
A quick glance at the Housewives’ Twitter accounts suggests the gals are cranking up the publicity machine.
Lisa Wu Hartwell tweeted the other day that she, Leakes and Sheree Whitfield were en route to a photo shoot.
“Having a fab time,” Hartwell reported to her followers. “In the taxi sitting on Sheree’s lap!”
Leakes has dealt with her son’s tangle with the law in a straightforward manner online, tweeting that he was about to encounter a healthy dose of tough love. Fans need not worry about her, it seems.
“Mrs. NeNe can ALWAYS take care of herself,” she tweeted recently, ” in a fabulous way.”
