Andy Cohen Finally Addresses ‘Real Housewives’ Lawsuits

Lyndon Abioye |

Andy Cohen and Bravo have been sued numerous times by several former Housewives including Atlanta alum Nene Leakes, New York alum Leah McSweeney and former Beverly Hills Housewife, Brandi Glanville.

“Producing a show about politically incorrect women in 2024 is different than producing a show about politically incorrect women in 2009,” Andy told The Hollywood Reporter. 

He continued, “In 2009, when one of the kids called his brother a fag, we left it in the show and then discussed it at the reunion episode. That was how two brothers talked to each other in 2009, and we saw it as a teaching moment. In 2024, you would immediately bleep that word, and it would trigger a whole furor. Today, someone on the show would probably say, “You can’t say that word anymore.” And then the viewers would go wild on Twitter. Sensitivities have changed over the years. Social media has a huge impact. There’s not a lot of room for nuance these days. We are living in an now, and everyone has had to adapt to that.”

There have been so many legal challenges that it was reported that Cohen could be stepping away from the network, but he quickly shot down the rumors, saying that while he is tired, he is still not tired of Bravo or of Watch What Happens Live.
