Brandi Glanville's legal team said there was "no excuse" for Andy Cohen's behavior after the Bravo host issued an apology for allegedly sexually harassing The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star in 2022.

Glanville claimed the 55-year-old "boasted" about wanting to "sleep with another Bravo star" while "thinking" about her and allegedly told her that she could watch him on FaceTime.

Glanville said she has not received a personal apology from Cohen.

"This was an extraordinary abuse of power that left Ms. Glanville feeling trapped and disgusted," the reality star's lawyers stated in a legal letter sent to NBC, Shed Media and Warner Bros.

"It is inconceivable that Mr. Cohen remains in his post in spite of this behavior and harkens back to the bad old days of Matt Lauer and NBC News when profits were prioritized over people," the letter read.

Cohen said Glanville's response implied she was in on the joke.

Cohen responded that he was "very clearly joking" with Glanville and Below Deck star Kate Chastain.

"It was absolutely meant in jest, and Brandi’s response clearly communicated she was in on the joke," he said at the time. "That said, it was totally inappropriate and I apologize."

Glanville's lawyers hit back at the apology, saying that "any boss who is clearly inebriated and encourages their employee by FaceTime video, and invites the employee to watch their boss to have s-- with another employee, constitutes sexual harassment, plain and simple, under any definition of sexual harassment even one concocted by NBC."

"Why is Andy Cohen getting a pass? Any other supervisor at Comcast/NBC who engaged in this behavior would be fired immediately on the spot," the statement continued. "In fact, if it was such a known joke, then why did he apologize?"

Brandi Glanville denied numerous claims made by Caroline Manzo.

"The reason is that Andy knows he is in a position of power which allows him to control where and how much Brandi works, which allows him to do whatever he wants and behave in a fashion that is abusive and harassing," her attorney concluded.
