NeNe Leakes reveals that her eldest son, Bryson Bryant, is “doing okay” after his recent arrest for felony drug possession.
The former star of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” opens up about her son’s arrest for the first time on Carlos King’s podcast, “Reality with the King,” which will be released on Tuesday.
“He needs rehabilitation,” Leakes tells the former Bravo producer. “He needs a lot of counseling.”
She continues, “Like many families out there, I have relatives who are struggling with drugs and various addictions. He has an addiction. He has been struggling with it for years. He has been in rehab multiple times, but he has relapsed.”
In fact, Leakes, aged 55, admits that she is powerless to help her 33-year-old son.
“There’s not much that I can do,” she says. “For those who have children or family members struggling with drugs, they know that the person has to be ready.”
Despite spending a significant amount of money to get Bryson the help he needs, Leakes understands that nothing will change until he makes the decision to change for himself.
“Every time I’ve sent him off is because I said, ‘You are getting your act together and we are sending you off,'” she explains. “But through my own counseling, I learned that he has to say, ‘I’m ready to go,’ not me forcing him. So until Bryson is ready to make a change, there’s nothing I can do.”
In fact, the struggle has been ongoing for so many years that Leakes has become somewhat desensitized to it all.
