Brandi Glanville continues to face serious backlash after her allegedly inappropriate antics during a recent filming session in Morocco for Real Housewives: Ultimate Girls Trip.
As we’ve been reporting, the controversial 50-year-old reality TV star has come under fire once again in her star-crossed on-air life. But this situation sounds significantly more serious than Brandi’s usually-crazy antics. This time around, insiders have been claiming Glanville allegedly sexually assaulted fellow RHUGT star Caroline Manzo during a cast trip to the North African nation.
There isn’t any video evidence of this alleged assault, but sources have previously dished details about audio of the event being caught on cast members’ mics. One insider said producers listening to the footage found it “disturbing” to hear what allegedly took place between Glanville and Manzo in a bathroom during that trip.
Now, as Bravo execs scramble to deal with the fallout from the jaw-dropping allegations, old comments are resurfacing. In a shocking twist, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum very recently bragged about her alcohol use and joked around about her often-intoxicated antics just weeks before she was kicked off RHUGT set for her alleged mistreatment of Manzo.
In late December of last year, Brandi popped up on David Yontef‘s celebrity interview podcast Behind the Velvet Rope. In their interview — which aired just a few weeks before the RHOBH vet’s reported assault of the Real Housewives of New Jersey alum — Brandi coolly opens up about alcohol.
At one point, she joked about giving lap dances while drunk. She told Yontef she didn’t care whether other people around her were concerned about her alcohol intake during nights out on the town:
“I am a happy drunk. I will give you a lap dance. I like to have fun, and I don’t hide the fact that I get drunk.”
Brandi went on to add that she measures whether she had “a really good night” by whether or not she passed out in her clothes to cap it off:
“When I pass out in my clothes, I know I had a really good night ’cause there was no getting that dress off, I just needed to go to bed. And honestly, how many times has everyone that I know done that? Like, ‘eh, I’m in my clothes, got my makeup on from last night, it’s fine.’ I just don’t pretend.”
Jeez. Really?? Girl, we all like to have fun now and then, but you’re not a 22-year-old college kid… You can listen to that full interview from the very end of last year via the Apple Podcasts app HERE.
Of course, it’s one thing for Brandi to “tell it like it is,” or whatever. Like, it’s fine to refuse to “pretend” about how you party. But the context here with the Manzo claims is no bueno, y’all. Very shortly after this open podcast bragging about drunken misdeeds, Glanville allegedly had her aforementioned “unwanted” sexual encounter with the ex-RHONJ star.
As we’ve previously reported, multiple sources have claimed Brandi “stuck her tongue down [Manzo’s] throat” early in the night. Then, later on, Brandi allegedly “pinned Caroline against the wall … and put her hands on Caroline’s breast area and vaginal area.” Insiders have also previously reported to Page Six that the production company filming RHUGT for Bravo, Shed Productions, allegedly “supplied the cast with alcohol” on the trip, and Brandi “appeared drunk during the incident.”
After the alleged assault first came to light in late January, Shed Productions and streaming service Peacock released a joint statement about the matter:
“The safety and security of cast and crew while shooting is extremely important, and we take all reports seriously. In this situation, production immediately launched a comprehensive review and is taking appropriate action.”
Manzo asked to leave the show and flew home the next day. Glanville was booted from the show by producers after that, and got sent home on another flight, as well.
And yet Brandi has appeared to since deny the sexual assault allegations against her, so… What do U make of Brandi’s resurfaced old alcohol-related comments, Perezcious readers?
