Documents pertaining to Caroline Manzo’s recently filed lawsuit against Bravo have been made public. Get all the details!
As the entire Bravoverse knows, Caroline Manzo is suing Bravo and claims sexual harassment over a raunchy moment with Brandi Glanville while filming for RHUGT in Morocco.
Last week, the Real Housewives of New Jersey alum just filed a lawsuit against Bravo as well as several other production company and studios involved in making the Peacock show, Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip.
Just days after Caroline Manzo’s lawsuit against Bravo was made public, new details about the alleged abuse the Real Housewives of New Jersey alum suffered at the hand of Brandi have been revealed.
In the documents, the 62-year-old detailed how she was allegedly abused by the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star in Morocco.
To start, Caroline Manzo alleges that she was asked by several members of the RHUGT cast about whether or not her breasts were real or fake and they frequently commented about how large her breasts were.
Then later that night at a bar, a “Clearly intoxicated, GLANVILLE walked over to MANZO, spread MANZO’s legs and leaned into MANZO. She then laid her head on MANZO’s inner thigh. MANZO pulled away and moved to the end of the couch.”
“Exerting her dominance over MANZO, GLANVILLE followed MANZO and sat right next to MANZO on the couch. GLANVILLE proceeded to kiss MANZO with a closed mouth. GLANVILLE then kissed MANZO again. MANZO was very uncomfortable.
GLANVILLE then proceeded to mount MANZO on the couch holding MANZO down with her body, forcibly squeezed MANZO’s cheeks together and thrust her tongue in MANZO’s mouth, while humping her,” the documents read.
“MANZO tried to push GLANVILLE off of her body. However, GLANVILLE was restraining MANZO with her much greater weight, size, and strength, and was unable to free herself.”
After a “distraught” and “scared” Caroline was able to free herself from Brandi’s grips she went over to the snake handler to try and “distract” herself from what just occurred.
The filing notes that: “When MANZO was seven years old, she was sexually assaulted. GLANVILLE’s sexual assault made all of these dormant and horrific memories immediately resurface. MANZO again felt like she was seven years old and began to relive her previous sexual assaults in the context of this sexual assault. She was in a state of shock.”
In order to clear her head, Caroline then headed to the bathroom to wash her hands and get away from the group for a minute.
“As MANZO stood at the sink washing her hands, GLANVILLE entered the bathroom and came behind MANZO, forced her vagina against MANZO’s buttocks, breasts against MANZO’s back, wrapped her long arms around MANZO forcibly restraining her and began washing her hands with MANZO’s hands entwined. Immediately, MANZO tried to exit the bathroom.
The bathroom door was locked. GLANVILLE pinned MANZO’s body against the door.
GLANVILLE pressed her breasts and vagina against MANZO. MANZO tried to unlock the door but could not get out. GLANVILLE repeatedly hit MANZO’s hand away from the door lock. GLANVILLE then reached around MANZO’s body and then groped, grabbed, and forcibly fondled MANZO’s vagina and breasts. At the same time, GLANVILLE pushed her face into MANZO’s neck in order to kiss her.
From inside the bathroom, MANZO cries, “HELP, HELP, HELP, HELP” but no one ever”
According to the documents, RHUGT producers heard Caroline Manzo’s pleas for help but did nothing to stop the allegedly assault.
“MANZO, visibly shaken, was finally let out of the bathroom after Housewife of New York, Alex McCord, saw what was happening and unlocked the bathroom door so MANZO could
After the sexual assault, MANZO, clearly shaken, tried to gather herself together all the while thinking to herself, “You are here to do your job. Do your job!” and proceeded to the dining room for dinner.”
At dinner, Brandi screamed across the table at Caroline Manzo: “I want to fuck you.”
Caroline got up from the table and went to the bathroom again. Brandi attempted to get into the bathroom twice, yelling, “I’m going with you. You’ve had too much to drink.”
At this point, Brandi once again, “started massaging MANZO’s breasts and MANZO objected telling GLANVILLE, ‘I think it’s time for you to leave.'”
Then “Manzo stated, ‘I got abused.'” which is when Eva Marcille “stated, ‘Brandi is over accosting her’ and ‘She wants it to stop,’ referring to MANZO.”
