After being accused of stealing razors from a local Walmart, NeNe's oldest son Bryson was in Gwinnett County Jail in Georgia, and wanted her to bail him out.
It wasn't the first time Bryson had been in jail, and so NeNe decided to play hardball. She refused to pay his bail and said that he could languish in jail for a month.
However, after Bryson had been in jail for five days, Cynthia's husband Peter Thomas tried to change NeNe's mind. "Five days is a long time for him in there," he said. "Bail him out!"
But NeNe was sticking to her guns. "I feel like it's time to show tough love. Bryson, he's had a really easy life. So, now I'm gonna show you what a hard life is."
Try as he might, Peter just couldn't persuade NeNe to change her mind. "The lesson needs to be learned," she said.
Bryson recently ran into more trouble when he was hospitalized following an altercation at an Atlanta area nightclub. Catch up with the drama on "The Real Housewives Of Atlanta," Sundays at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
