A source claimed Andy Cohen hired a “crisis PR team” following Leah McSweeney’s lawsuit alleging he consumes cocaine with certain Housewives. But a group of Bravo stars are now coming to his defense, claiming he’s been nothing but “professional.”

In addition to the Real Housewives of New York star’s allegations, Brandi Glanville claimed Andy sexually harassed her with an inappropriate video. Andy has since apologized to Brandi.

“He hired a crisis PR team, which is a red flag,” said a source to Page Six.

But a second insider said Andy hasn’t officially hired anyone, and he is simply obtaining support from friends with experience in navigating scandals.

“He does not have a formal agreement,” said the second insider. “He has not paid a penny.”

The source said his friends are “rallying around him,” and they’re “keeping up the positivity and just being here for him” – though Andy is “not panicking.”

“It’s infuriating that [McSweeney] can make up lies to try and hurt someone’s reputation just so they can get headlines,” said a third insider. “It’s truly disgusting and shows someone’s true character.”

Meanwhile, more and more Bravo stars are coming to Andy’s defense.

“Oh. I’ll come out. Ridiculous allegations,” wrote Sutton Stracke on X. “Gentleman. Professional. Never seen nor heard of any rumors. And y’all know I listen.”

“My Jefecito [Andy] Who I Have Known Personally And Professionally since 2011. He Has Always Been Genuinely Fair, Loving, Considerate And Always The Consummate Professional,” wrote Marysol Patton on Instagram. “The Greatest Testament To His Character Was The Way He Treated My Mother An Anomaly In The Bravo-verse. You Are Loved And Appreciated In Heaven And On Earth.”

Lisa Hochstein shared a photo of herself with Andy from the recent reunion.

Tamra Judge also shared her two cents.

“Don’t come for the Housewives or @bravoandy, honey…” she wrote on Instagram, “because you will be BANISHED! 🗡️.”
