UPDATE – A new report from TMZ is denying this claim as a spokesperson for Bravo says there is zero truth to the report that Andy is negotiating any exit from the network and that the claim is patently false. The original story is below.

Andy Cohen is said to be considering a Bravo exit after two decades with the network.

Amid dwindling ratings and a series of controversies, including a lawsuit from Leah McSweeney, 41, who accused him of using cocaine with certain Real Housewives, and claims of sexual harassment from Brandi Glanville, 51, the Watch What Happens Live host, 55, is allegedly “in discussions” to end his run with the media giant.

“Negotiations for Cohen’s departure package are underway as he grapples with the fallout from mounting accusations by his stars,” a source told In Touch Weekly on April 18.

As fans will recall, Leah, a recovering addict who previously starred on The Real Housewives of New York City, filed her lawsuit against Andy and Bravo earlier this year, accusing producers of pushing her to relapse to boost ratings.

A short time later, Brandi, formerly of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, claimed in legal documents of her own that Andy requested she watch him have sex with another Bravo personality.

“Mr. Cohen was Ms. Glanville’s boss at the time and exercised complete and total control over her career,” her letter, via Page Six, stated. “This was an extraordinary abuse of power that left Ms. Glanville feeling trapped and disgusted. 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.”

In response to the claims, however, a Bravo insider said, “This couldn’t be further from the truth,” and Andy further clarified the situation with a tweet.

“The video shows Kate Chastain and I very clearly joking to Brandi. It was absolutely meant in jest, and Brandi’s response clearly communicated she was in on the joke. That said, it was totally inappropriate and I apologize,” he wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter, in February.

While Andy attempted to make nice publicly with Brandi, she wasn’t satisfied and fired back with her own tweet, shading him for failing to reach out to her privately.

“I have not received a personal apology from anyone,” she wrote. “I saw an apology that Andy posted TO HIS FANS for his mistreatment of me and inappropriateness.”
