Brandi Glanville Denies Ever Being ‘Close’ With Andy Cohen

Brandi Glanville has more to say about her relationship with Andy Cohen. The Bravo vet, who appeared on shows like Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and The Traitors, has been in quite a sticky situation over the last year. 

Following her trip to Thailand for what should have been Season 4 of Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip, Brandi allegedly had an unwanted run-in with Caroline Manzo. In a lawsuit filed by the Real Housewives of New Jersey OG, she claimed producers sat by idly while allowing this to happen. “[Brandi] proceeded to mount Manzo on the couch holding Manzo down with her body, forcibly squeezed Manzo’s cheeks together and thrust her tongue in Manzo’s mouth, while humping her,” the legal documents read

Brandi has been out of work since all of this went down. She’s been excluded from reunions, BravoCon, and essentially any other gig that’s not her podcast. To make things worse, Brandi slammed her former boss, Andy, recently, claiming he’s sexually harassed her. Further, she alleged that the Real Housewives executive does cocaine with his favorites.

Many Housewives, including Melissa Gorga and Kyle Richards, have come forward to defend Andy against Brandi’s statements. Fans have also been critical of her claims, stating she used to be close with the juggernaut and her latest comments are purely retaliation. 

However, during a recent episode of her podcast, Brandi Glanville Unfiltered, she clarified her relationship with Andy for her listeners. 

“I’m getting a ton of messages about Andy and how close of friends we were,” she began. “I just want people to know that I never once in the 13 years that I’ve known him hung out with him. Ever. Not after Watch What Happens Live. We’ve never had [lunch, dinner, or breakfast]. We literally had a texting relationship and I would see him on WWHL and that was it.” 

She continued, sharing that she didn’t attend his Housewives-filled baby shower in 2019 because she “wasn’t invited.” 

“We never hung out — not once. Not at BravoCon either. … Just because people see me in pictures with him at WWHL it doesn’t mean we were buddies. Our entire relationship was on the phone.”
