Real Housewives' NeNe Leakes' 23-year-old son leaves hospital two months after stroke

NeNe Leakes' son has left hospital two months after he suffered a stroke and heart failure.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star's son Brentt, 23, was seen walking out of hospital on Thursday, much to the delight of his family following his major health scare.

The positive update was provided by the star on social media as she shared clips of him walking the hospital hallways to the cheers of surrounding nurses. He had been in the hospital in Georgia since his health scare in September.

Sharing the clip and snaps with her 4.3 million Instagram followers, the 54-year-old wrote: "Nurses are the best." She followed it up with a video of her son hooked up to a machine and treadmill as he learned to walk again.

In a third upload to her Story, she showed son walking backwards throwing a basketball while a device aided his posture.

Shortly after the incident, NeNe revealed her son was having trouble speaking. Two weeks after he was admitted to hospital, the reality TV star provided fans with an update. She said at the time: "Brentt had congested heart failure and a stroke.

"He's only 23, so he's really young for something like that to happen to him." She confirmed her son doesn't drink or do drugs so this wasn't a factor.

Thankfully, he now seems to be well on the road to recovery although there is still a long way to go.

NeNe made headlines last year towards the end of her husband's life after famously announcing the news of his health decline during a nightclub appearance.

She spoke out at a club she owns in Georgia called the Linnethia Lounge after she was offended by customers who had called her rude for not wishing someone a happy birthday.

Following the incident, the reality TV star addressed party-goers to tell them her feelings. In a clip shared by Onsite! at the time, NeNe was saying slamming the party-goers, saying: "My husband is transitioning to the other side.

"You don’t know what we're dealing with right now. We walked in this lounge because we had to walk in this lounge because this is our business. So, when people approach and say 'you're rude because you don’t want to say happy birthday' — my husband is at home dying. I don't want to say 'happy birthday'."
