Brandi Glanville, a former cast member of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, has accused host Andy Cohen of inappropriate behavior. The 51-year-old alleges that Cohen, 55, sent her a video in 2022 while appearing to be under the influence of alcohol. Glanville claims the video made her feel uncomfortable and unsafe. Glanville's attorney, Bryan Freedman, sent a letter to NBCUniversal, Shed Media, and Shed's parent company Warner Bros detailing the incident.

The letter accused the host of Watch What Happens Live of requesting sexual activity via FaceTime, expressing a desire to be “intimate with another Bravo personality” while having “Brandi Glanville in mind”. However, the letter did not reveal the identity of this other reality star. “Mr. Cohen was Ms. Glanville’s boss at the time and exercised complete and total control over her career,” the letter read.

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