Caroline Menzo alleges that she was sexually harassed by Brandi Glanville.

The concept of Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip brings cast members from various Housewives shows together to embark on a drama-filled vacation while being filmed by Bravo and other production entities. However, according to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Caroline claims that things went too far during one evening between herself and Brandi Glanville, an ex-star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Caroline alleges that she was sexually harassed by Brandi, with producers allegedly encouraging the behavior.

In her lawsuit, Caroline describes an incident in which Brandi made unwanted advances towards her, forcibly kissed her without consent, and continued to touch her inappropriately. Caroline states the alleged encounter was "deeply uncomfortable" and "crossed a line."

Kandi Burruss from Real Housewives of Atlanta recently revealed that none of the girls on her show have been asked to return for season 16 yet.

During a recent livestream, Kandi told her viewers, "They still haven’t told everybody who they’re bringing back. Yeah, they’re over here — they’re being real — [they’re] trippin’! People got lives around here. We gotta make plans for other things."

In a separate interview, she claimed, “They are still waiting on the new cast, so I can’t tell you anything.”

Shereé Whitfield also revealed that she hadn't heard anything about the ladies returning for season 16 either.
