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.
Are you ready for The Real Housewives of New Jersey to celebrate Melissa Gorga? She is on display and ready to turn 40! Most of the new episode looks to center around her lavish birthday celebration. However, there is a lot of drama looming that could ruin it all. Last week’s episode ended with a rift beginning to form between Teresa Giudice and Margaret Josephs. All of it is over Danielle Staub!
Everyone in the group has strong opinions about Danielle. It’ll be interesting to witness how her place in the group evolves throughout the season. In addition to the Margaret/Teresa drama, Jackie Goldschneider is also feuding with Mrs. Giudice. Watch out for flipped tables and thrown wine glasses! Melissa wants a drama-free party, but in this group that isn’t likely. It’s also important to note that Jennifer Aydin has issues with Jackie as well. THE DRAMA!
Real Housewives of New York is currently filming and boy, do we need it. Even though Bethenny Frankel has moved on, the East Coast ladies rarely disappoint. Season 12 will find Luann de Lesseps
drinking again off of probation and still trying to make cabaret a thing. Tinsley Mortimer will be reunited with on-again/off-again ATM boyfriend, Scott Kluth for the 80th time. Stay tuned for their 3 episode wedding arc, followed by Tinsley’s journey to the lawyer’s office.
Since B has taken a hike, a new cast member will be introduced. Her name is Leah McSweeney and by all accounts, she’s got a rep to protect. Leah has knuckle tats, y’all! Buckle up, Ramona Singer. If darling Ramona was incensed at Heather Thomson’s “Holla!” on repeat, this one is sure to put turtle time in time out. Leah has already been spotted publicly arguing with Tins and Lu at an anti-bullying event, because irony is the spice of life! Dorinda Medley actually likes Leah, for now anyway. She discussed the new cast member at BravoCon and what we can expect next season.
Anyone who has been keeping tabs on the Real Housewives of Orange County knows that cast member Kelly Dodd is always bringing attention to herself with something she says. But most recently, it’s something she did that has everyone talking. Kelly recently announced via Instgram that she is engaged to her new boyfriend Rick Leventhal.
Cast mates Emily Simpson and Braunwyn Windham-Burke, along with various Housewives from the other franchises immediately reacted on social media to show their excitement over the engagement. Kelly happily showed off that goose egg of a rock he put on her finger.
Just in case you hadn’t heard, Kelly Dodd is engaged! The outspoken Real Housewives of Orange County star announced her engagement to New York based reporter Rick Leventhal last week after a whirlwind courtship. It seems like just yesterday that Kelly was dating plastic surgeon Brian Reagan, who has been featured numerous times on season 14 of RHOC. Maybe it wasn’t yesterday, but it was just a few months ago that they broke up!
We all know that Kelly does things her own way and in her own style. So, her lightning speed engagement should not be a surprise. She has already picked a wedding date of 10-10-20. Of course, Kelly being Kelly, she has not exactly worked out all the logistics of how she and Rick will incorporate their lives together.
Kelly Dodd is now an engaged woman. Since her divorce from Michael Dodd a few years ago, Kelly has been a single lady about town. Real Housewives of Orange County fans have been treated to her dating adventures, this season centered around plastic surgeon Brian Reagan. Kelly revealed the two had split in August, after an on-again, off-again relationship.
Last week, Kelly announced that she got engaged to New York City-based reporter Rick Leventhal, whom she started dating just after her break up from Brian. Why doesn’t a bat out of hell speed engagement surprise me for Kelly? Since Kelly met Rick, her Instagram posts have been filled with pics of the two of them together in New York City and Orange County. As the couple live on opposite coasts, they will have to determine where they will eventually reside. Recently, Kelly expressed that she might have an interest in becoming one of the Real Housewives of New York.
When Bethenny Frankel announced her exit from Real Housewives of New York, some fans were sad that we would miss out on her one-liners next season. Others understood that Bethenny had to focus on her daughter, charity work, and her relationship with Paul Bernon, who seemingly had no interest in appearing on RHONY. Then, there were some people who were downright ecstatic about B’s departure. I’m looking at you, Ramona Singer and Luann de Lesseps.
The two of them have made several comments about Bethenny’s exit and none of them had anything to do with missing the Skinnygirl mogul. Of course, they were asked about Bethenny during a panel at BravoCon over the weekend. And, well, Ramona didn’t mince any words.
The Real Housewives of New York remain arguably the strongest franchise outof all the Real Housewives (unarguably if you ask me) but with the recent exit of Queen B Bethenny Frankel, fans wondered what was up next for the women of the Big Apple.
Speculation remained strong in the Bravo Universe, fueling even more talk about who would be the next Housewife to join the cast. Everyone from Anthony Scaramucci’s wife to none other than Wendy Williams were tossed around.
