Bravo Exec Andy Cohen Addresses Controversial 'RHONY' Cruise from Hell

The controversial trip to Columbia is one of the things to look forward to in the upcoming 10th season of The Real Housewives of New York City. However, not everything that has been reported about the "cruise from hell" is accurate, according to Bravo exec Andy Cohen, who claims that the account of the events that transpired has been "grossly misrepresented."

"Much of what has been reported of the boat trip is completely wrong," Cohen told Entertainment Tonight. "They did have a squirrelly boat trip, but there was no fire. The boat didn't sink. I mean, it's been grossly misrepresented."

As Page Six previously reported, the cast was booked onto an old decrepit vessel for their visit to  Cartagena, Colombia. "Once they were ushered on board, the boat couldn't even move. The anchor got stuck, so the crew had to saw the anchor off before they could sail anywhere," the source said. "When they got out to sea, the engine caught fire. It was a huge blaze and the crew was fighting to put it out. They didn't have a fire extinguisher nor did they speak English."

Shortly after reports about the boat incident surfaced, cast member Bethenny Frankel took to Twitter to address the rumors.

Despite the downplay of drama, fans can still expect the coming episodes to be "hilarious and dramatic and shocking."

"It's so good," Cohen teased. "You know, it's all the same cast. The show ended last year so well and we just thought, 'We don't want to change a thing,' and I'm glad we didn't. It's interesting to see. There's some, you know, Bethenny and Carole [Radziwill's] friendship has really changed, and Luann [de Lesseps] has an incredible story arc from beginning to end. She begins the season having just split from Tom [D'Agostino], winds up getting arrested in the middle the season, quitting alcohol and just -- it's incredible to see what happens there." 

"Every day, the New York Housewives field notes are the best to read," he added. "Something crazy happens every shoot."

The Real Housewives of New York City season 10 premieres April 4 on Bravo.
