Love & Hip Hop Atlanta‘s Deborah “Momma Dee” Bryant had a birthday party to remember last night. The now-52-year-old reality star whooped it up with friends at a Milwaukee restaurant, but her “friends” reportedly all skipped out and left Momma Dee with the bill! The birthday girl refused to pay, was arrested, and spent some time in Milwaukee County Jail! That’s Momma Dee’s mug shot photo above.
Among those friends who were in attendance at the downtown restaurant Elsa’s On the Park was Shay Johnson, who shared this video clip of the festivities prior to Momma Dee’s arrest:
“MILWAUKEE TURNT UP FOR @tharealmommadee BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION,” wrote Shay before adding the #OUTNTHESEMILWAUKEESTREETZ hash tag and a list of some of the others in attendance.
According to sources for Straight From the A, it was after dinner when “Shay reportedly got into a debate with two unidentified men about who would be responsible for the tab.” Apparently, this “debate” had no clear resolution. “My sources say the dinner party subsequently ended,” reports SFTA, “and the partygoers all trickled out of the restaurant, including Shay and the two men she was arguing with about the tab.”
UPDATE – TMZ has since done a post about Momma Dee’s arrest and they confirm Straight From the A’s report, but add that the final tab was right around $500.
Momma Dee was booked and held on $250 bail, which apparently (unlike her restaurant tab) got paid because she is headed back out for another night on the town tonight. And guess who with? Yep, Shay Johnson!
“My boo for life,” Shay captioned the photo above on Instagram. She revealed in a previous photo that she and Momma Dee were headed out to see a Michelle Pitts concert. I’m glad to see a silly arrest didn’t get in the way of their friendship. Oh, and a belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Momma Dee!!
