Andy Cohen And Howard Stern Are Dragged Into Brandi Glanville And Joanna Krupa's Legal Battle!

According to a new report, Andy Cohen and Howard Stern have been roped into the ongoing legal battle between former Real Housewives stars Joanna Krupa and Brandi Glanville. The legal battle first kicked off in January 2015 after Glanville said in an interview with Andy Cohen that Krupa had an affair with fellow former co-star Yolanda Foster's then husband Mohamed Hadid, and also claimed that Krupa's vagina smelled.

Glanville made the comments on Cohen's late night Bravo talk show, Watch What Happens Live, and repeated similar comments to Stern on his talk show.

She now has 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 records 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.

Krupa claimed that Glanville's comments caused her emotional distress and damaged her reputation by labeling her as someone who slept with a married man.

She sued Glanville for using her celebrity status to embarrass, ridicule and ruin her image along with hurt her ability to get work in the entertainment field.

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 Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, due to the Miami spin off being canceled years before because of low ratings.

Glanville said that both Lisa Vanderpump and Mohamed Hadid - who have been friends for more than ten years - revealed to her at Vanderpump's home that Hadid had been cheating on Foster with Krupa during a two-year affair.

Both Vanderpump and Hadid denied ever telling Glanville that Krupa was having an affair with Hadid, and they claim to have never said that Krupa's private parts smelled.

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.

Krupa also claimed that Glanville changed her story several times. 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, reports The Daily Mail.

The motion is still pending in court, and Glanville filed documents on December 5 demanding that Krupa not be allowed to seek punitive damages. The former model 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.

In her deposition earlier this year, Vanderpump said she doesn't believe that Krupa should be pursuing a lawsuit, adding that she believes that nothing Glanville says has credence or credibility.

Further, Vanderpump said that Glanville's allegations that she got her fired from Real Housewives are false.
