Details of Andy Cohen’s video message to Brandi Glanville were revealed following her claim that he sexually harassed her; insiders who watched the full clip claimed that the Real Housewives star actually responded with her own X-rated joke.
Glanville, 51, lashed out at the Bravo talk show host, 55, in an explosive legal complaint sent by her lawyers to NBC, Shed Media and Warner last week, which left bosses vowing never to work again with her never again, according to internal sources.
The letter claimed that an “obviously intoxicated” Cohen sent Glanville a video of himself in March 2022 in which he said he wanted to have sex with another Bravo star, later revealed to be Kate Chastain, before inviting Glanville to watch the event on FaceTime.
Now, sources have told DailyMail.com that Cohen and Chastain were fully clothed at a party with friends when they jokingly sent the video message to Glanville, who told the TV host in her response that she would “bring her hot dildo “.
Brandi Glanville accused Andy Cohen of sexually harassing her after he asked her to watch him have sex with Kate Chastain in a March 2022 video message.
Sources tell DailyMail.com that Cohen and Chastain (pictured) were fully clothed when the message was sent and that Glanville responded with an X-rated comment.
According to sources who saw the video, Cohen began the message by addressing the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum and said, ‘Hey Brandi, what’s up girl? We’re just thinking about you.
‘So yeah, Kate and I are going to have hot sex and I wanted to know if you wanted to watch it. You know a little ménage à trois.
Cohen and Chastain were then heard laughing, with the latter adding, “Yes!”
Cohen continued: ‘So we FaceTime again. It’s okay, girl, I love you!’
Chastain added, “I love you, bitch.”
Glanville is said to have responded: “I’ll bring my hot dildo.”
The source also claimed that the trio have dated numerous times since the incident, and Glanville last year praised Cohen for his support amid sexual assault allegations leveled against him by his Ultimate Girls’ Trip co-star Caroline Manzo. 62 years old.
A second source also accused Glanville of using Cohen to gain “influence” in her fight against Manzo and claimed she was “dumb.”
In the video message, Cohen allegedly said, “Kate and I are going to have hot sex and I wanted to know if you wanted to watch it.” You know a little ménage à trois’
According to sources, Glanville responded, “I’ll bring my hot dildo.”
“Brandi has been looking for this window since Caroline’s lawsuit,” they said.
“But for her to accuse the most openly gay man on reality TV of sexual harassment is absolutely ridiculous.
“She was really looking for straws with this and to think that would give her leverage in her case is foolish.
‘They are two separate and very different cases. The people Andy works with will have his back on this. He was very transparent and his statement said it all. He has nothing to hide.
‘Their skeletons have been discovered. According to him, it was a joke and he wasn’t the only one to find out. If Brandi thinks Andy was actually trying to sleep with her, she’s a fool.
“She keeps coming back to reality TV and no one knows why, other than her thirst for fame and a paycheck. If she doesn’t want funny dramas, don’t come back again.
They finished: ‘She can dish it out, but she clearly can’t stand it. “Brandi will never appear on another Bravo or NBC affiliated show again.”
DailyMail.com has contacted representatives for Cohen and NBC for comment.
Glanville’s lawyer, Bryan Freedman, questioned in a statement to DailyMail.com whether Brian Roberts, the chief executive of Comcast, which owns NBC Universal, would take action if Cohen made the same comments to one of his loved ones, insisting that if This is In that case, the NBC boss should “fire” the Bravo host “immediately.”
Cohen apologized last week for the joke, which he said was “inappropriate” but “absolutely was in jest.”
Cohen (left) insisted Glanville’s (right) video was a “joke” as he apologized on X.
Cohen acknowledged that her message was “inappropriate” but said Glanville’s response made it clear that she was “in on the joke.”
“The video shows Kate Chastain and I clearly joking around with Brandi,” he wrote on X.
“It was absolutely a joke, and Brandi’s response clearly communicated that she was in on the joke. That being said, it was totally inappropriate and I apologize.”
Brandi’s attorney called the apology “false” and went on to insist that her video message “constitutes sexual harassment.”
The former Real Housewives star has set out to “wage a public reputation war” against the network after she was “silenced” in the wake of sexual assault allegations made by Manzo last January.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey regular alleged that Glanville kissed her without consent and even ‘forced his vagina against her back’ while filming the Housewives spinoff show, Ultimate Girls Trip, in Morocco.
Last month, she officially filed a lawsuit against Bravo over her claim that production encouraged Glanville to sexually harass her.
In a new legal complaint, Glanville’s lawyers appear to suggest that Manzo is lying and insists that no assault occurred.
‘EM. Glanville and Ms. Manzo engaged in “dirty dancing,” flirting, and playfully touching each other,” the letter reads. ‘Throughout the night, they shared a couple of kisses.
‘We have heard about an alleged “bathroom incident” through press leaks, but Shed Media has repeatedly refused to allow Ms Glanville or her lawyer to view the footage in question; “There is no truth to any accusation of wrongdoing.”
The letter continued: ‘It is evident that some accusation was made; However, NBC, Shed Media or Warner Bros have not clarified the nature or source of that accusation.
“We can deduce from the press coverage, littered with malicious and deliberate leaks, that Ms. Manzo formally accused Ms. Glanville of sexual misconduct and that, as a result, Ms. Glanville was sent home.”
Separate sources close to NBC warned that Glanville’s legal letter is the last straw and that his career at the network is over.
They continued: ‘It should be noted that Mrs. Glanville and Mrs. Manzo were never alone together; Everything that happened took place in the presence of the cast and crew. All events were caught on camera or picked up by a microphone.’
Glanville’s legal team maintains his innocence and insists his co-star ‘did not manifest a lack of consent at any time.’
Also in the letter, Glanville’s representatives accuse Manzo of “feeding a defamatory narrative” to the media and of being the source behind press leaks about the claims.
It says: ‘We have every reason to believe that Ms Manzo, with the tacit or express support of Bravo and Shed Media, is the source of the first voluminous press leaks that began immediately after Ms Glanville’s return home.
‘However, Mrs Glanville was admonished to remain completely silent and to refrain from defending herself. She was further told that, assuming she complied with that directive, she would have the opportunity to work again for Shed Media/Warner Bros. on the condition that she complete 6 months of outpatient therapy with a Warner Bros.-affiliated therapist. Glanville did so.
“However, it later became clear that this was a false promise intended to ensure Mrs Glanville’s silence.”
TMZ previously reported that Manzo is suing Bravo and claimed production plied them with alcohol while filming the spinoff.
Caroline Manzo (right), 62, is suing Bravo and claims production encouraged Glanville to sexually harass her while filming the Housewives spinoff, Ultimate Girls Trip.
The documents state: “Defendants, including Bravo, regularly abuse the Real Housewives cast with alcohol, severely intoxicate them, and then direct, encourage, and/or allow them to sexually harass other cast members because it is good for ratings. “.
‘Caroline Manzo is a victim of these harmful actions,’ he added.
In their full statement responding to the lawsuit at the time, a representative for Glanville told DailyMail.com: ‘Unfortunately, Brandi has had to wake up to another lawsuit that includes false and defamatory allegations about her. During filming, Brandi followed what the producers asked of her and there was no sexual assault.
“She is innocent of these absurd accusations that have weighed on her physical and mental health for far too long without a word of support from Peacock, Shed or Bravo.”
The statement concluded: ‘This painful narrative seems endless and must end. She is looking to move on and move up and get her life back.”
