Brandi Glanville did not only give Caroline Manzo “unwanted kisses” while filming “Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip”; she allegedly touched Manzo’s chest and genital area as well, Page Six has learned.
Last week, reports surfaced that Glanville and Manzo had both left the “Housewives” spinoff over the alleged kisses. But we’re told that the incident was significantly more serious, and that the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” alum “touched [Manzo’s] breast area and vaginal area” over her clothes during one interaction.
Multiple sources claim the cast was partying as a group in a private home while filming the fourth installment of “UGT” in Morocco on Jan. 25, when Glanville, 50, “stuck her tongue down [Manzo’s] throat.”
We’re told the incident made Manzo, 61, uncomfortable.
Soon after, Manzo, Glanville, former “Real Housewives of New York City” star Alex McCord and a fourth member of the cast, who has yet to be identified by Page Six, allegedly went to the bathroom together, sources say.
We’re told that Glanville locked the bathroom door and allegedly “pinned Caroline against the wall.”
“She put her hands on Caroline’s breast area and vaginal area,” claimed a source familiar with the incident, which has been corroborated by a number of other sources.
We’re told production company Shed Productions had provided alcohol for the cast and that Glanville — whose behavior has raised concerns about problem drinking in the past — appeared drunk during the incident.
Sources say McCord, 49, realized that Manzo was uncomfortable with the situation and unlocked the bathroom door so the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” alum could leave.
We’re told there’s no video of the incident because it occurred in a bathroom, but cast members’ mics were live, so there’s audio of the interaction. We’re told crew members found the tape “disturbing.”
This season of the show, which features members from various editions of Bravo’s long-running “Real Housewives” franchise, also stars Camille Grammer, Vicki Gunvalson, Eva Marcille, Phaedra Parks and Gretchen Rossi.
Sources close to production say Manzo asked to address the matter on camera with the rest of the cast on Jan. 26, and they claim that it was only then that it became clear to the other women that she was in distress about the incidents.
We’re told Glanville apologized to Manzo via text message and Manzo was moved to a hotel to “get her out of the situation” the same day.
Manzo returned to the US on Jan. 27 and Glanville was asked to leave Thailand before the rest of the cast departed, we’re told.
Sources say attorneys interviewed cast and crew members and that an investigation into the matter has already been completed.
On Jan. 30, People magazine reported that “Glanville took things too far with Manzo during a party, kissing her multiple times throughout the evening without her consent.”
A source told the outlet, “It was unwanted. And Caroline’s distress over the matter did not seem to stop Brandi. Things escalated and physical boundaries allegedly were crossed that Caroline felt were serious and uncomfortable.”
Representatives for Shed and Peacock released a joint statement to Page Six saying, “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.”
“The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip” debuted on Peacock in November 2021 with a getaway to Turks and Caicos featuring Bravo favorites Luann de Lesseps, Teresa Giudice, Kyle Richards and more.
Season 2, which was set in Massachusetts, aired over the summer. Season 3 was filmed in Thailand but has not yet aired.
A rep for Manzo declined to comment. Glanville and her rep did not respond to multiple requests for comment. McCord also didn’t respond to requests for comment.
