Details of Andy Cohen’s video message to Brandi Glanville have been revealed in the wake of her claim that he sexually harassed her – with insiders who have seen the clip in full claiming that the Real Housewives star actually responded to it with her own X-rated joke. 

Glanville, 51, lambasted the Bravo talk show host, 55, in an explosive legal demand sent by her attorneys to NBC, Shed Media and Warner last week – which left bosses vowing never to work with her again, according to insiders.

The letter claimed that an ‘obviously inebriated’ Cohen sent Glanville a video of himself in March 2022 in which he said that he wanted to have sex with another Bravo star – later revealed as Kate Chastain – before inviting Glanville to watch the act over 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 reply that she would ‘bring her hot dildo’.

According to sources who have seen the video, Cohen started the message by addressing the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum, saying: ‘Hey Brandi what’s up girl? We are just thinking about you.

‘So yeah, me and Kate are gonna have some hot sex and wanted to know if you wanted to watch. You know a little ménage à trois.’

Both Cohen and Chastain were then heard laughing, with the latter adding: ‘Yeah!’

Cohen continued: ‘So FaceTime us back. Okay girl love you!’

Chastain added: ‘Love you b***h.’

Glanville is then said to have messaged back: ‘I will bring my hot dildo.’

The source also claimed that the trio has hung out on numerous occasions since the incident, with Glanville last year praising Cohen for his support amid the sexual assault allegations that were leveled against her by her Ultimate Girls’ Trip costar, Caroline Manzo, 62.

A second insider also accused Glanville of using Cohen to gain ‘leverage’ in her fight against Manzo and claimed she was ‘foolish.’

‘Brandi has been looking for this window ever since Caroline’s lawsuit,’ they said.

‘But for her to accuse probably the most openly gay man on reality TV of sexual harassment is absolutely ludicrous. 

‘She was really grabbing for straws with this one and to think it would give her leverage in her case is foolish.

‘They are two separate cases and very different. People Andy works with will stand behind him on this. He was very transparent, and his statement said it all. He has nothing to hide.

‘His skeletons have been out. As he stated, it was a joke, and he was not the only one in on it. If Brandi thinks that Andy was actually trying to sleep with her, she is foolish.

‘She keeps returning to reality TV and no one knows why aside from her thirst for fame and a pay check. If she doesn’t want playful drama, don’t keep coming back.’

They finished: ‘She can dish it out, but she clearly cannot take it. Brandi will never appear in another Bravo or NBC affiliated show again.’

DailyMail.com has contacted representatives for Cohen and NBC for comment. 

Glanville’s attorney, Bryan Freedman, questioned whether Brian Roberts, the CEO of Comcast – which owns NBC Universal – would be happy with Cohen making sexual comments towards his children as he accused Roberts of ‘authorizing’ the belief that the comments were appropriate.

In a statement, he told DailyMail.com: ‘This behavior is unequivocally retaliatory and I ask Mr. Roberts that if Andy Cohen, while acting as a supervisor for NBC/Bravo, made those comments to one of his two daughters while Mr. Cohen was in a position of power over them, would it be okay to even joke about watching their boss invite them to watch them to have sex with a subordinate of the company?’

Cohen last week apologized for the joke which he said was ‘inappropriate’ – but ‘absolutely meant in jest.’

‘The video shows Kate Chastain and I very clearly joking to Brandi,’ he wrote on X.

‘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.’

Brandi’s attorney branded the apology ‘fake’ and continued to insist his video message ‘constitutes sexual harassment.’ 

The former Real Housewives star has set out to ‘wage a public reputational war’ against the network after they ‘silenced’ her 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 her vagina against her back’ during filming of the Housewives spin off show, Ultimate Girls Trip, in Morocco.

Last month, she officially filed to sue Bravo over her claim that production encouraged Glanville to sexually harass her.

a new legal demand, Glanville’s attorneys appear to suggest Manzo is lying, insisting no assault took place.

‘Ms. Glanville and Ms. Manzo engaged in “dirty dancing,” flirting, and playful touching,’ the letter reads. ‘Throughout the night, they shared a couple of kisses.

‘We have heard about a supposed “bathroom incident” through press leaks, but Shed Media has repeatedly refused to allow Ms. Glanville or her counsel to see the footage in question; there is no truth to any allegations of impropriety’.

The letter continued: ‘It is apparent some allegation was made; however, neither the nature nor the source of that allegation has been clarified by NBC, Shed Media, or Warner Bros.

‘We can glean from the press coverage—seeded by malicious and deliberate leaks—that Ms. Manzo formally accused Ms. Glanville of sexual misconduct and that Ms. Glanville was sent home as a result.’

Separate sources close to NBC warned Glanville's legal letter is the last straw - and that her career at the network is over

They continued: ‘It bears emphasis that Ms. Glanville and Ms. Manzo were never alone together; anything that happened took place in the presence of the cast and crew. All the events were captured on camera or picked up via microphone.’

Glanville’s legal team maintain her innocence and insist that her costar ‘did not manifest a lack of consent at any point.’

The letter also sees Glanville’s reps accuse Manzo of ‘feeding a defamatory narrative’ to the media and of being the source behind the press leaks regarding the claims.

It states: ‘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 early and voluminous press leaks that began immediately upon Ms. Glanville’s return home.

‘Yet Ms. Glanville was admonished to remain entirely silent and to refrain from defending herself. She was further told that assuming her compliance with that directive, she would have the opportunity to work for Shed Media/Warner Bros. again on the condition that she completes 6-months of outpatient therapy with a Warner Bros.-affiliated therapist. Ms. Glanville did so.

‘It became apparent afterward, however, that this was a false promise intended to ensure Ms. Glanville’s silence.’

TMZ previously reported that Manzo is suing Bravo and claimed production plied them with alcohol as they filmed the spin-off.

The documents state: ‘Defendants, including Bravo, regularly ply the Real Housewives cast with alcohol, cause them to become severely intoxicated, and then direct, encourage and/or allow them to sexually harass other cast members because that is good for ratings.’

‘Caroline Manzo is a victim of those harmful actions,’ it added.

In her full statement in response to the suit at the time, a representative for Glanville told DailyMail.com: ‘Sadly, Brandi had to wake up to yet another lawsuit that includes defamatory, false accusations about her. While 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 mental and physical health for far too long without word of support from Peacock, Shed or Bravo.’

The statement concluded: ‘This painful storytelling seems endless and needs to stop. She is looking to move on and upward and get her life back.’
