That “Real Housewives of Atlanta” Alum shared a series of photos and video clips showing just how much hard work Brentt put in during his time in a rehabilitation facility.
Nene’s followers could see him working on coordination and walking while strapped into an elevated harness that kept him upright and mobile. In one shot, NeNe could be seen looking down at him as he slept. “Nothing but God,” she captioned this pic.
In a triumphant video that’s also wonderfully hilarious, Brennt can be seen shaking his head and rolling his eyes as he’s filmed simply walking the hallways – but it’s easy to see why his family did so sees as a miracle.
“HE’s Walking and Talking,” NeNe writes on another slide, with an emoji of praying hands. In another, she writes, “Home in time for the holidays,” while praising his nurses across multiple slides.

It’s incredible to compare these videos of him smiling and walking out – even reacting a little annoyed because it’s so wonderfully normal for a 23-year-old young man – to some footage of him in the more intense rehab.
It’s hard to imagine what an emotional challenge this has been for the whole family over the last two months and how much hard work Brennt has put in to achieve this incredible result.
Nene’s boyfriend, Nyonisela Sioh, shared a video to his own Instagram Stories on Tuesday, captured by Atlanta Black Star, by Brentt, who joined him and Nene for dinner at Nobu in Atlanta. He captioned it: “My dude is back.” Brentt also shared the clip to his own IG Stories, according to the outlet.

NeNe first spoke about Brentt’s health crisis two weeks after it began in another IG Stories video, captured here by TMZ.
She confirmed he didn’t drink or do drugs or have HIV or Covid, all of which are possible reasons why he had such serious health problems at his age. At the time, NeNe said doctors were still not sure what caused the crisis.
Of course, Nene has a lot to be thankful for now that her son is doing so well and getting home in time to celebrate Thanksgiving and the entire holiday season ahead.
