The butler from season two of Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip is suing Bravo for sexual abuse, claiming he was forcibly stripped and touched inappropriately at a party.

The trip, which was filmed at Dorinda Medley’s Blue Stone Manor, featured former stars from the network and introduced Marco Vega – who worked for Dorinda throughout the season.

TMZ obtained court documents in which Marco claimed he was sexually abused amid the taping. He accused Phaedra Parks of slapping his butt, and he alleged Brandi Glanville exposed his torso by ripping off his shirt.

“Earn your money, Marco. Take your shirt off. Do something!” Brandi allegedly said while yanking off the shirt, via Page Six.

He said the incidents took place following a strip-tease show at the mansion. At one point, he claimed producers encouraged Marco to “go over and get the women dancing!”

According to Marco, via TMZ, cast members were heavily drinking throughout the evening, and the aforementioned events triggered a strain in his relationship with his wife, who became very upset by what took place.

Marco is now suing Bravo for harassment and sexual abuse, pointing to the network’s alleged history of condoning inappropriate actions from the stars. He is also seeking damages.

When Page Six asked for a comment, Phaedra’s rep stated, “She is traveling and unavailable for comment.”

Brandi’s rep told the outlet, “She has the utmost respect for Marco. Anything that occurred on the set that evening was requested by the producers and approved by Marco Vega himself.”

Back in 2022, Marco took to Instagram and addressed his feelings about filming. Per fan account @brandsbybravo, the former butler said he “was not happy” to be “forcibly stripped,” and he “didn’t really ‘connect’ with any of the ladies.”

The star expressed, however, that Dorinda was “extremely kind to him.”
