In a striking turn of events, Brandi Glanville, known for her appearances on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" and "Ultimate Girls Trip," has made a serious accusation against Andy Cohen, the host of Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live" and the executive producer of "Real Housewives." Represented by attorney Bryan Freedman, Glanville claims Cohen, in an alleged state of inebriation, sent her a video suggesting inappropriate intentions towards another Bravo celebrity, with an invitation for Glanville to witness the act via Facetime.

This allegation surfaced through a formal complaint directed to NBCUniversal, Shed Media, and their parent entity, Warner Bros. Discovery. Glanville's legal team detailed her discomfort and sense of entrapment stemming from Cohen's purported conduct.

Cohen's Swift Response

Reacting swiftly to these allegations, Cohen issued a public statement. He acknowledged the existence of the video, which also features Kate Chastain, a former star of "Below Deck." Cohen insisted that the video was created in a humorous context and that Glanville's initial reaction was one of understanding the joke.

Despite this, he conceded that the content was indeed inappropriate and extended an apology. This controversy emerges just a month after another allegation rocked the Bravo community. Caroline Manzo, set to appear on the upcoming series "The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip," filed a lawsuit against Bravo, NBCU, and Shed.

In a shocking revelation, Manzo accused Glanville of s----- harassment and assault during their time in Morocco. The lawsuit, lodged in a New York state court, claims Glanville forcibly kissed Manzo and made unwelcome physical contact.

It further alleges that the production entities were previously aware of Glanville's contentious behavior yet continued to employ her, ostensibly to bolster the show's appeal. These back-to-back allegations have ignited a firestorm of controversy, casting a shadow over the reality television landscape and raising serious questions about the conduct and accountability of its stars and producers.
