Real Housewives of Orange County star Kelly Dodd went to visit her friend, RHONY’s Ramona Singer, in the Hamptons in August. Kelly had just split from her plastic surgeon boyfriend, Brian Reagan. What better way to mend a broken heart than hanging out with your friends and chilling?
Ramona introduced Kelly to Rick Leventhal, who is a Fox News correspondent, at a BBQ in the Hamptons. In November, Rick put a ring on it after a few months of dating. He proposed to Kelly on the rooftop terrace of his home in New York City.
It’s obvious that Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd did not make amends filming the Real Housewives of Orange County Season 14 reunion. They’ve been shading each other left and right ever since.
Recently, Shannon (supposedly) claimed that Rick Leventhal proposed to Kelly with the ring that Jim Bellino gave to his ex-fiancée. Yeah, apparently Jim was engaged to someone other than Alexis Bellino.
Kelly Dodd is no stranger to showing it all on Real Housewives of Orange County. She clearly isn’t afraid to say what she means or call out the tres amigas. In other words, Kelly is carrying this season on her back. Tamra Judge said prior to the start of the season that Gina Kirschenheiter was going to be the rockstar to watch. I guess now it makes sense that Tamra would say this, considering she’s on the outs with Kelly.
It’s definitely Kelly who carries the show. She is not afraid to put all the worst parts of herself on TV for our entertainment. Lately, a lot of good things have been coming her way. She is now engaged to Fox News reporter Rick Leventhal. Her relationship with Rick is a positive, and interestingly, she doesn’t seem to want to show this on RHOC.
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.
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.
Here come the Bravo brides! Love is in the air for a pair of Housewives who are prepping to tie the knot next year on a lucky day. Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey received a sweet proposal from her man, sportscaster Mike Hill, on July 26.
Mike popped the question at the opening of The Bailey WineCellar, and RHOA cameras were rolling. Cynthia was thrilled!
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.
