 Bravo drops drug and assault allegations made on Andy Cohen earlier


Andy Cohen has been cleared of allegations made by former Real Housewives stars Leah McSweeney and Brandi Glanville. According to a representative for Bravo, the claims against Cohen, which included accusations of drug abuse and sexual harassment, were found to be “unsubstantiated,” as reported by Deadline.

The allegations came from Glanville, 51, and McSweeney, 41, both of whom gained prominence through their appearances on The Real Housewives franchise, which Cohen executive produces and hosts. The accusations were related to incidents of alleged drug and alcohol abuse as well as sexual harassment involving Cohen, who is 55.

“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,” the spokeswoman told the outlet.

A representative for Cohen had denied the allegations earlier as well, at the time they were made, declaring to The Hollywood Reporter that they were “completely false.” “Nobody gets a good edit on that show, that’s for a fact,” Vanderpump, 63, supported the host while talking to TMZ on March 2.

“And Andy doing coke? I know because I’ve partied with him hundreds of times — in my business, in my house, in New York — I’ve never seen anything like that. I can categorically say, ‘No, he wouldn’t do that.’ I know for a fact he wouldn’t do that.”

In response to these accusations, Bravo conducted an internal review and concluded that there was no substantial evidence to support the claims. The network stood firmly by Cohen, and many Real Housewives cast members voiced their support for the producer and talk show host.

Among those who backed Cohen was Lisa Vanderpump, a former cast member of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Vanderpump, known for her role on the show and her own spin-off series, Vanderpump Rules, emphasized her belief in Cohen’s integrity and praised his professionalism. Other housewives, including Kyle Richards and Cynthia Bailey, also expressed their confidence in Cohen, dismissing the allegations as baseless.

Brandi Glanville initially spoke out against Cohen, alleging inappropriate behavior during her time on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Similarly, Leah McSweeney, who appeared on The Real Housewives of New York City, claimed that Cohen had mistreated her and abused his power as a producer.
