Andy Cohen Refutes Leah McSweeney’s Lawsuit Allegations Regarding Real Housewives of New York City

Andy Cohen has refuted allegations made against him in a lawsuit filed by “Real Housewives of New York City” alum Leah McSweeney, with his representative stating that the claims are “completely false.” McSweeney’s lawsuit accuses Bravo, NBC/Universal, Shed Media U, and specific producers, including Cohen, of fostering a toxic work environment, pressuring her to consume alcohol despite her sobriety efforts, and alleging Cohen favored cast members who partook in cocaine use with him.

Andy Cohen has refuted allegations made by “Real Housewives of New York City” alum Leah McSweeney in her lawsuit, which accuses him and the network of exploiting her struggle with alcoholism and favoring cast members who partake in partying and drug use with him.

Andy Cohen’s in the hot seat, folks. He’s clapping back at accusations thrown his way by Leah McSweeney, a name you’ll recognize from “Real Housewives of New York City.” She’s suing, and Andy’s saying, “Nope, not true.”

A rep for Cohen, who’s 55 by the way, chatted with The Hollywood Reporter. It was Wednesday, February 28, when they said, “The claims against Andy are completely false.” So, what’s the beef about? Leah’s not just pointing fingers at Andy. She’s got Bravo, NBC/Universal, and the production house Shed Media U in her crosshairs. Plus, producers John Paparazzo, Lisa Shannon, and Darren Ward.

Tuesday, February 27, was when Leah filed her lawsuit. She’s accusing the network of exploiting her struggle with alcoholism. And Andy? She says he’s playing favorites, giving better treatment to those who party with him. The lawsuit even claims he did cocaine with some of the ‘Housewives.’

Switching gears, did you know being a Real Housewife isn’t all glam and drama? They’ve got legal troubles too. From Teresa and Joe Giudice’s fraud case to Sonja Morgan’s bankruptcy, it’s a rollercoaster.

Back to Leah’s lawsuit. She’s calling out Bravo for a “rotted workplace culture.” She told them she was sober for 30 days and wanted to keep it that way. But nope, they allegedly pressured her to drink during all three seasons she was on the show. She even says they retaliated when she tried to stay sober.

Oh, and there’s this bit about filming in Thailand. Leah says her rights were trampled on. She couldn’t get to Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, despite being told it wouldn’t be an issue. She’s also claiming mental manipulation for better TV ratings.

Leah joined “RHONY” in 2019 and was part of it for two seasons. She also appeared on Peacock‚Äôs “The Real Housewives: Ultimate Girls Trip” in 2022, which aired a year later.

On Tuesday, she spilled the beans on social media. “I was petrified to speak on it,” she said. According to her, Bravo’s shows are run by folks who create a dangerous work environment and encourage substance abuse.

Leah’s not holding back. She says there’s more dirt that’ll come out once people are questioned under oath. She’s fighting back against a culture she says promotes toxicity, alcoholism, and pain.

Sobriety is her top priority. Without it, she risks losing everything. Despite fears of being judged, she’s opening up about her addiction and recovery.

Now, Leah’s lawsuit isn’t the only drama. Brandi Glanville, from “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” also made waves with sexual harassment claims against Cohen. Her legal team sent a letter to NBCUniversal and others, accusing Cohen of inappropriate behavior.

Cohen responded to Glanville’s claims, saying it was all a joke. He apologized, admitting it was inappropriate. So, there you have it, a whirlwind of accusations, denials, and legal drama. Just another day in the world of Bravo’s Real Housewives.
