Kelly Dodd has Ramona Singer to thank for introducing her to new fiancé Rick Leventhal. Yes, Ramona the woman who won’t let anyone else on Real Housewives of New York get a modicum male attention is actually a successful matchmaker.
Rick and Kelly started dating after they met in the Hamptons at the end of the summer and their relationship has moved at lightning pace. They got engaged after just a few months together and Rick hasn’t really met Kelly’s daughter Jolie. Yes, they’ve FaceTimed, but that’s it. Wow. At least, Jolie will (obviously) have some role in the wedding festivities, but what about the Housewives? Obviously, Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge are not going to plan a bachelorette party. Vicki did say that Kelly got engaged for a storyline, after all.
In an interview with HollywoodLife, Kelly said, “Knowing Ramona, she’s- She wants to be a bridesmaid. I’m like, girl, you’re going to be a bridesmaid. You’re the one who happened for me.”
Ramona told Us Weekly, “They had a major connection. She also shared, “A month ago her fiancé Rick said to me at a party for her birthday, ‘Ramona, I can’t begin to thank you for how you introduced me to Kelly. I owe you big. I love her. What can I buy for you? Anything in the world? Tell me what can I buy for you.’ You know what? Just make my girlfriend happy. That’s all I care about.” And that’s what he’s doing.
That’s not the only RHONY lady that will be a part of the ceremony. Kelly revealed to HollywoodLife, “Dorinda [Medley] wants to officiate it.” Maybe Kelly should just jump ship and become a New York Housewife. She seems to have much stronger relationships within that cast than with the Tres Amigas on her own show.
Kelly continued, “I think it would be great, because I’m Catholic and my fiance’s Jewish, so I’m not going to have a priest and a rabbi, so why not have Dorinda? She can officiate.” How about a RHONY/RHOC crossover episode!?

What about the Real Housewives of Orange County cast members? Kelly shared, “Probably Braunwyn [Windham-Burke]and Emily [Simpson]. They’ll probably be there.” You never know with Real Housewives friendships. The dynamics change so quickly. For all we know Shannon Beador can end up as a bridesmaid. Somehow.
Kelly also told HollywoodLife, “[The wedding] Probably will be pretty big, because I have a lot of friends. He has a lot of friends. Oct. 10, 2020, we’re trying. We’re shooting for that. I want to do Napa. I never knew it was going to happen like this. I wasn’t even looking. I broke up with that stupid doctor and bam. This came in my face. It was a whirlwind.”
And by “that stupid doctor,” she mean means Brian Reagan, her boyfriend on the current season of RHOC. She announced her breakup with Brian in an Instagram Story the same day she revealed she was dating Rick. I would love to know what Brian thinks about all this.
