Brandi Glanville is feeling the heat following her early exit from season 4 of the Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum was noticeably missing from The Traitors season one reunion. Multiple sources tell PEOPLE that Brandi missed the sitdown due to the ongoing investigation into the alleged incident between her and Caroline Manzo while filming season 4 of RHUGT in Morocco.
“Brandi wanted nothing more than to attend The Traitors reunion,” a rep for Brandi tells the outlet. “It has been one of Brandi’s favorite projects.”
“Brandi has been prohibited from sharing her side of the story, and in turn, people have only heard unsubstantiated versions,” the rep adds. “Brandi maintains her innocence and vehemently denies any wrongdoing.”
As AllAboutTRH previously reported, Brandi was asked to leave the RHUGT season 4 trip to Morocco early after a series of incidents, including “unwanted” sexual advances.
During one incident, Brandi allegedlly “stuck her tongue down [Caroline’s] throat.”
Shortly later, the former Bravoleb “pinned Caroline against the [bathroom] wall” and then allegedly “put her hands on Caroline’s breast area and vaginal area.”
The encounter made Caroline uncomfortable while Bravo producers found the footage “disturbing.”
“It was unwanted,” a source said at the time. “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.”
Moreover, sources say members of the Shed Media production crew plied the cast with alcohol and that Brandi was drunk during the alleged run-in with Caroline.
Brandi was asked to leave the trip early. As for Caroline, she chose to leave the trip early after making it clear she no longer wanted to film.
Meanwhile, former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita appeared on Teddi Mellencamp and Tamra Judge’s Two T’s in a Pod podcast, where she revealed that Caroline is still “trying to process” the incident.
“It was really traumatic for [Manzo]. Whatever happened was very traumatic. … She said it was just very traumatic. She’s trying to process it all,” Jacqueline explained, adding that she “did talk” to Caroline after she left Morocco.
Jacquline says the incident between Caroline and Brandi was “bad” and “nothing [Manzo] could ever imagine.”She noted that Caroline “didn’t tell [her] that much” and “can’t talk about it right now ’cause it was under investigation.”
Furthermore, Jacqueline said the conversation “was bothering” Caroline, so she “let it go” and “didn’t dig anymore.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will return to Bravo in mid to late 2023.
