Bravo Closes Investigation into Andy Cohen’s Conduct, Says Claims by Brandi Glanville and Leah McSweeney ‘Were Found to Be Unsubstantiated’


Andy Cohen is continuing on with Watch What Happens Live. Bravo has renewed his much-buzzed-about late night talk show through 2025 after completing an investigation into accusations from former stars of The Real Housewives, the franchise on which he is also an executive producer.

“The outside investigation into the recent allegations made by Brandi Glanville and Leah McSweeney against Andy Cohen has now been completed, and the claims were found to be unsubstantiated,” a Bravo spokesperson said in a statement to Entertainment Weekly.


Earlier this year, Glanville, a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum, accused Cohen, an executive producer of the Real Housewives franchise, of sexual assault over a drunken video he sent to her in which he "boasted of his intention to sleep with another Bravo star that night while thinking of her and invited her to watch via Facetime," according to a letter from Glanville's lawyers, obtained by PEOPLE.


Cohen quickly apologized over social media, claiming the video was a joke, but Glanville's attorneys rejected his apology and excuse. Glanville's lawsuit comes after former Real Housewives of New Jersey star  Caroline Manzo sued Bravo and its affiliated companies over an alleged sexual misconduct incident involving Glanville on Real Housewives: Ultimate Girls Trip.

Glanville, who is not named as a defendant in the lawsuit, has denied any wrongdoing.



Real Housewives of New York's Leah McSweeney's suit claimed that she experienced a "rotted" workplace culture that pressured employees to consume alcohol and that she was retaliated against when she tried to stay sober. Her complaint alleges producers "intentionally" orchestrated scenarios "intended to exacerbate" McSweeney's "disabilities" in order to "create morbidly salacious reality television."


McSweeney also alleged Cohen had a "proclivity" for cocaine usage with "Housewives and other Bravolebrities that he employs," claiming that he "tends to provide the Housewives with whom he uses cocaine with more favorable treatment and edits."


Cohen recently spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about the so-called "reckoning" rocking Bravo — regarding the lawsuits and former Housewives star Bethenny Frankel's calls for on-air talent to unionize — telling the outlet that despite some relationships gone sour, he has "no regrets."


“I’m incredibly proud of the close relationships I’ve built in my 20 years at the network,” Cohen said. “I’m super proud of what we’ve built and of everybody who’s been a part of it. I think most people involved with these shows have been very grateful for the platform, but there will always be a few with complaints. Obviously, it’s no fun to be a target. So, yes, it’s hurtful. But I have no regrets about the way I’ve handled anything.”
