The legal battle that began in January 2015 between Real Housewives stars Brandi Glanville and Joanna Krupa is still going on and now Andy Cohen and Howard Stern have been brought into the case.
As you probably recall, it all started when Brandi Glanville said in an interview with Andy Cohen that Krupa had an affair with Yolanda Foster’s then husband and spoke about the smell of Krupa’s private parts on Watch What Happens Live. She also repeated similar comments on Stern’s show.
Brandi has now filed new documents in the case, asking that Krupa be barred from seeking punitive damages, and in response, Krupa named and Cohen and Stern as people who have knowledge about the case in case they have to testify one day, according to court filings obtained by The Daily Mail.
Krupa first sued Glanville in Miami Court, accusing her of slander and emotional distress demanding monetary damages for the damage she did to her reputation.
Glanville fired back at Krupa’s lawsuit, saying the entire case was nothing more than an attempt by Krupa to keep her name in the headlines and help her her land a spot on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, because The Real Housewives of Miami had been cancelled.
Brandi claimed that both Lisa Vanderpump and Mohamed Hadid had told her this information at Vanderpump’s home, although both Vanderpump and Hadid deny this claim.
On August 18, Krupa filed court documents to amend her complaint to seek punitive damages from Glanville, revealing that Vanderpump and Hadid all said Glanville’s allegations are not true. Krupa said that the three key witnesses deny the story Glanville claims as her defense.
Hadid said that he never informed Glanville of an affair between him and Krupa, and that he never made comments about Krupa’s private parts. Vanderpump also says she never had a conversation with Glanville.
She hoped to amend her complaint to seek punitive damages, which under Florida law allows a jury to award her up to $2 million in damages.
The motion is still pending in court, and Glanville filed documents on December 5 demanding that Krupa not be allowed to seek punitive damages.
Brandi said that Krupa has not denied having sex with Hadid, and instead uses careful wording to say she never had sexual relations with him while he was married to Foster. She included a list of responses that Krupa used to answer discovery questions throughout the lawsuit and asked Krupa to list all individuals who have knowledge of the case at hand. The list includes Vanderpump, Hadid, Kyle Richards, Hadid, Foster, producers of Real Housewives and former Real Housewives of Miami co-stars Alexia Echevarria and Adriana De Moura.
Along with Stern and Cohen, Kelly Ripa’s husband Mark Consuelos is also listed because he is aware of facts pertaining to the case.
