Brandi Glanville is staunchly denying any wrongdoing as an internal investigation by Peacock is being conducted after the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star allegedly made unwanted advances toward her Real Housewives: Ultimate Girls Trip co-star, Caroline Manzo, while filming the franchise’s fourth season in Marrakech, Morocco.

After being removed from RHUGT mid-filming, Brandi was set to appear on the reunion for her other Peacock show, The Traitors. However, according to her representative, the ongoing investigation “prohibited” her from attending.

“Brandi wanted nothing more than to attend The Traitors reunion,” Brandi’s rep told PEOPLE. “It has been one of Brandi’s favorite projects.”

“Brandi has been prohibited from sharing her side of the story and in turn, people have only heard unsubstantiated versions,” the statement continued. “Brandi maintains her innocence and vehemently denies any wrongdoing.”

The Traitors reunion was hosted by none other than Brandi’s former Housewives boss, Andy Cohen, who addressed Brandi’s absence from the reunion by shortly and simply saying, “Unfortunately [Brandi’s] not able to join us tonight.”

Last month, sources told the outlet that Brandi had repeatedly crossed “physical boundaries” with Caroline and that her advances were “unwanted.”

“Caroline’s distress over the matter did not seem to stop Brandi. Things escalated and physical boundaries allegedly were crossed that Caroline felt were serious and uncomfortable,” the source stated.

Allegedly, Brandi tried to remedy the situation with Caroline the following day by sending her a text message apologizing for her behavior. But it was to no avail, and Peacock executives made the decision to remove Brandi from filming altogether. The alleged altercation left Caroline feeling so uncomfortable that she decided to leave the show early.

“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,” a Peacock representative relayed in a statement at the time.
