Brandi Glanville Has Been Making Headlines Following Filming for ‘Ultimate Girls Trip’ Season 4
Glanville, who appeared on seasons three, four, and five, of RHOBH as a full-time star, has been making headlines over the past few weeks after word got out that she left Morocco early after traveling there to film the fourth season of the “Real Housewives” spinoff, “Ultimate Girls Trip.”
On January 30, 2023, People magazine reported that Glanville and her UGT co-star Caroline Manzo both stopped filming early due to “unwanted” kisses. A source told the outlet that Glanville was trying to make moves on Manzo and was ultimately sent home by production. Meanwhile, it has been reported that Manzo left on her own accord.
Heavy has previously reached out to reps for both Glanville and Manzo. Neither have spoken out following the reports, but Peacock Shed Media released a joint statement in early February 2023.
“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 statement sent to People reads.
In the time since, there have been rumors that Glanville was not at the taping for “The Traitors” reunion that was hosted by Andy Cohen. Peacock has not confirmed or denied who was in attendance at the taping or who wasn’t.
