Brandi Glanville sang Andy Cohen’s praises months before accusing him of sexual harassment

Brandi Glanville sang Andy Cohen praises months before she accused him of sexually harassing her in a legal letter sent to NBC.

While speaking to Page Six last August, the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” alum claimed the Bravo honcho was supportive of her when her “Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip” Season 4 co-star Caroline Manzo accused her of touching her inappropriately on set.

“Andy and I have had a ton of conversations because this is the first time I’ve ever dealt with anything like this,” she recalled. “This is new for me and this is scary for me. He’s been very helpful, honestly.”

“He’s like, ‘It’s going to be what it’s going to be. Some people are going to probably see it and just say, ‘That’s Brandi being Brandi,’” she claimed he expressed to her. “‘Don’t be too hard on yourself.’”

While Glanville, 51, spoke highly of Cohen, 55, with Page Six in August 2023, her comments were not published until September.

Manzo, 63, formally sued Bravo and the involved production companies for not protecting her from Glanville’s alleged unwanted advances in January.

While chatting with Page Six, she said the Bravo honcho was there for her when Caroline Manzo accused her of sexual harassment.
“Andy and I have had a ton of conversations because this is the first time I’ve ever dealt with anything like this,” she claimed.
“This is new for me and this is scary for me. He’s been very helpful, honestly,” the reality star added.

Meanwhile, Glanville’s scathing legal letter about Cohen was obtained by Page Six Thursday.

In the letter, Glanville accused Cohen of sending her a drunken video in 2022 in which he “boasted” about his desire to “sleep with another Bravo star.”

She also alleged that he invited her to watch him engage in the sexual act via FaceTime. The identity of the person he wanted to hook up with wasn’t revealed in the legal letter.

“Mr. Cohen was Ms. Glanville’s boss at the time and exercised complete and total control over her career,” the former model’s letter pointed out.

“This was an extraordinary abuse of power that left Ms. Glanville feeling trapped and disgusted.”

“It is inconceivable that Mr. Cohen remains in his post in spite of this behavior and harkens back to the bad old days of Matt Lauer and NBC News when profits were prioritized over people.”

Cohen addressed the letter on X Thursday and apologized for his actions; however, he also claimed that Glanville knew it was all a joke.

“The video shows Kate Chastain and I very clearly joking to Brandi,” he explained. “It was absolutely meant in jest, and Brandi’s response clearly communicated she was in on the joke.”

“That said, it was totally inappropriate and I apologize.”

The father of two has not been accused of sexual harassment by any other “Housewives,” but he has been accused of fostering a toxic workplace in the past.

“Real Housewives of New York City” alum Bethenny Frankel previously accused Cohen and Bravo of encouraging stars to drink excess alcohol while depriving them of food in 2023.

Former “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Nene Leakes also once sued Bravo for racism, although she ultimately dropped the suit.
