NeNe Leakes oldest son Bryson Bryant posed for yet another mugshot yesterday. Apparently NeNe found out this morning, and according to her tweets, shes not too happy about it…
Details are sketchy, but Bryson was booked into jail at 10:07pm last night (July 7, 2011). He is being charged with shoplifting and violation of probation. No word yet on a bond.
As you know, Bryson has been arrested several times in the past and the probation violation charge probably stems from one of his previous arrests.
Last year, Bryson was arrested when he was found to be in possession of marijuana while visiting a friend in jail. He was arrested a 2nd time on a separate drugs & weapons charge.
*UPDATE* According to TMZ, Bryant is accused of jacking two Mach 3 razors from a Walmart .. and was busted by the Walmart security team. The razors were reportedly valued at $14 bux a piece.

I’m so happy Beyonce chose “The Best Thing I Never Had,” as the 2nd single from her new “4” album because CLEARLY she was in my head at the time…
There was a time I thought, that you did everything right.
No lies, no wrong. Boy I, must’ve been outta my mind.
So when I think of the time that I almost loved you,
you showed your ass and I saw the real you
Thank God you blew it. Thank God I dodged the bullet. I’m so over you. So baby good lookin’ out!
In the video for her hot new single, Beyonce goes from preparing for her wedding to thanking God that she finally saw the light.
Been there… done that… bought a t-shirt. [Sidebar: What goes around comes around. I bet it sucks to be you right now… you know who you are.]

NeNe Leakes of The Real Housewives of Atlanta and her husband Greg were spotted boo’d up in the corner of the Belvedere Lounge during the 2011 Essence Festival last weekend (July 2, 2011).
The storyline of next season’s “Housewives” is rumored to be focused on Nene & Greg’s “divorce,” so it’s obvious why the two made sure they weren’t photographed together. If you recall, Lisa Wu-Hartwell was booted from the show after she WOULDN’T pretend there was drama in her marriage, apparently NeNe & Greg have decided to play the game.
Greg sat around looking bored in the corner while NeNe left to pose on the red carpet…

Acclaimed author Terrance Dean hit Atlanta last week to host a discussion panel on “Young, Black, Gifted & Gay: Powerful Men in the Entertainment Industry and Our Allies in Partnership” at Outwrite Book Store (June 29, 2011).
Panelists included fellow bloggers Drama Dupree and Gyant (GyantUnplugged), Adrian J. Daniel (aka Sir Daniel of Better Days Radio), George Smith (creator of Black Gay reality series “Tha Life”), Lonnell Williams (3LWTV), and Maurice Jamal (Filmaker/Founder Glo-TV).
I was also thrown into the mix to add my take on the situation as a straight woman and it was quite an experience!
Terrance’s first book, Hiding in Hip-Hop: Confessions of a Down-Low Brother in the Entertainment Industry, sparked a ton of controversy last year when everyone speculated about the identity of the “DL” entertainer featured in the book.

So you may have heard that the “A” Team (Michelle Brown (ATLien) and Joi Pearson) hit up New Orleans, Louisiana this year for the 2011 Essence Music Festival.
The trip itself became somewhat of a ritual for my girlfriends and I about 4 years ago but last year I decided that since I was going anyway, I would cover Essence for StraightFromTheA.
Some of my highest trafficked blogs were spawned from incidents that occurred during that hot & sweaty weekend….
