Caroline Manzo, Brandi Glanville’s Scandalous ‘RHUGT’ Season Delayed to 2024 After Touching Incident

There have been some changes to Peacock’s ‘Ultimate Girls Trip’ schedule.

Peacock has decided to push back the premiere of the “Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip: Ex-Wives Club” until next year and instead will give the former ‘RHONY’ cast sooner screen time.

The network announced on Twitter Wednesday that they bumped up “The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip: RHONY Legacy” launch date to December, pushing the other series back a few months.

“We’re in a New York state of mind ,” the network tweeted. “As a thank you to the fans for all of the support for #RHONY and #CrappieLake, the next season of #RHUGT will be RHONY LEGACY coming this December on Peacock! And then we’ll see you in Morocco in 2024.”

The “RHONY Legacy” series follows Kelly Killoren Bensimon, Luann de Lesseps, Dorinda Medley, Sonja Morgan, Ramona Singer and Kristen Taekman as they travel to Saline Beach in Saint Barthélemy.

Part of the reasoning for the swapped schedule has to do with the success of De Lesseps and Morgan’srecent spinoff “Luann & Sonja: Welcome to Crappie Lake” — which became Peacock’s second most-watched Bravo series premiere when it aired last month.

While “RHONY Legacy” was filmed in June, “Ex-Wives Club” was filmed in January. However, production came to an abrupt halt midway through filming over an “uncomfortable” encounter between Caroline Manzo and Brandi Glanville.

Sources previously told Page Six that Glanville, 50, and Manzo, 61, left filming in Marrakech, Morocco early after the former allegedly nonconsensually kissed the latter “multiple times” during a party.

A week later, other insiders revealed that Glanville was allegedly intoxicated and touched the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star’s “breast area and vaginal area” over her clothes while they were in the bathroom.

While there were no cameras in the locked bathroom, we were told cast members’ mics were live, so there’s audio of the interaction.

Since then, the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” alum has vehemently denied any wrongdoing, suggesting that she was “f–king set up” in order to create a more interesting storyline.

She has since demanded that producers release the audio to clear her name, yet it’s unclear what will be shown in the upcoming season.

In June, Glanville also issued a warning to Taekman before the “Real Housewives of New York City” star jetted off to St. Barts to film “RHONY Legacy.”

“Blonde Voyage besty ??  @kristentaekman!! Just remember if any of the other housewives do ANYTHING you don’t like just ask for HR! Production will shut down and lives will be ruined! Welcome to our new REALITY TV,” Glanville sarcastically tweeted.

Meanwhile, Manzo said she will “never” return to the franchise due to the alleged incident.

Alongside Glanville and Manzo, the season is set to feature Camille Grammer Meyer, Vicki Gunvalson, Eva Marcille, Alex McCord, Phaedra Parks and Gretchen Rossi.

That’s a big bet on Peacock’s part. By then we all might have ‘RHONY’ fatigue.
