Earlier this 12 months, the higher-ups at Bravo eliminated Brandi Glanville from Final Ladies Journey, sending her residence.
Allegedly, Brandi’s “lewd” incidents whereas filming for the brand new season included sexual misconduct involving Caroline Manzo.
That may be a very critical subject. Caroline has not spoken publicly about this, and Bravo continues to be investigating.
Some followers are drawing their very own conclusions with out listening to from anybody concerned. As a result of the topic is so critical, Brandi’s lawyer is hoping to finish any rumors now. How? By releasing recordings that can exonerate her.
Brandi Glanville’s attorneys have despatched a proper letter requesting that Warner Bros launch particular audio and video.
In line with her group, this proof will clear her of sexual wrongdoing allegations.
In any case, the alleged incident with Caroline Manzo — which, we should emphasize, shouldn’t be one thing that Caroline herself has publicly mentioned — went down whereas filming for Final Ladies Journey. Although not essentially on digicam.
In line with reviews, Caroline accused Brandi of touching her in her breast and genital space.
Now, this allegedly occurred in January whereas filming in Morocco, however off-camera.
Off digicam … however maybe on mic. Brandi’s attorneys say that Shed Media (owned by Warner Bros although they produce Final Ladies Journey) might and may have launched sizzling mic audio. Ideally, as quickly as all of this went public.
The franchise loves a sizzling mic second. And whereas it’s potential that producers are sitting on the audio to play throughout the season, the concern is that this (supposedly) exculpatory proof could possibly be clearing Brandi’s identify.
And with out it, properly, followers might have months to determine on the reality by themselves. Particularly given the affect that social media can have.
“It is absolutely unacceptable that your company would knowingly and willingly allow such a story to take hold in the media,” Brandi’s lawyer wrote.
Brandi’s lawyer continued: “without any regard for the truth or the impact on Ms. Glanville’s reputation.”
Not releasing the tapes, the letter theorized, was a “cynical ploy for ratings” on the expense of Brandi’s fame and profession.
Keep in mind, Brandi didn’t seem on the The Traitors Reunion particular due to this scandal.
Once more, we’re leery of reporting secondhand accusations. If Caroline needs to make a public assertion, she is welcome to take action.
We now have seen “incidents” on actuality TV go far past the precise statements that the alleged sufferer has made, and it compounds any tragedy that will have taken place.
Nevertheless, the allegation is that Brandi gave Caroline undesirable kissing throughout a celebration and later touched her breasts and groin over her clothes. The latter incident allegedly went down in a rest room, and there have been reportedly two different castmates current.
“In that bathroom, as the audio will confirm, nothing inappropriate or illegal whatsoever occurred,” Brandi’s lawyer wrote.
“As you know both from your [investigation] and the audio and video that you possess,” he continued, “the four women washed their hands before returning to the party where they enjoyed some food and chatted.”
The lawyer added: “Throughout, Ms. Manzo appeared to be having a great time and didn’t telegraph any signs whatsoever that she wanted Ms. Glanville to leave her side.”
“Overall, the entire incident was comprised of some flirtatious conduct and kissing between Ms. Manzo and Ms. Glanville,” Brandi’s lawyer summarized. “And all of it was absolutely mutual and consensual.”
Apparently, there’s greater than audio at play. The letter says that Gretchen Rossi and Alex McCord and a 3rd, unnamed eyewitness can all verify this.
Moreover, the letter (like a earlier report) alleges that Caroline’s personal demeanor and feedback about kissing Brandi indicated consent and an absence of misery. After all, we is not going to really know Caroline’s mind-set till she receives contractual permission to discuss this.
