NeNe Leakes Refuses to Bail Son Bryson Bryant Out of Jail

NeNe Leakes is showing her son Bryson Bryant some tough love on Sunday's all-new episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

"I'm just getting back from Africa, I'm exhausted, and all of a sudden Bryson calls me from Gwinnett County Jail. He said that he was arrested several days ago. I said, 'OK. Goodnight.'"

Leakes, 44, is shocked to see her son behaving so poorly. "Who in the hell walks into a store and steals two $14 razors?" she wonders. "And in a Wal-Mart of all places!"

Once she learned that her son "had not even been reporting to his probation officer," Leakes decided to take a more drastic approach. "He's had a really easy life, so now I'm gonna show him what a hard life is. He's gonna stay in jail, I'm not getting him out, and he can figure it out from behind bars."

"He could stay for about 30 days," Leakes adds. "I really feel that a lesson needs to be learned."

The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs Sunday at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
