Kelly Dodd is one lucky gal! The Real Housewives of Orange County star showed off the luxurious gifts that her boyfriend Rick Leventhal got her on Instagram on Monday, September 9. She moved on with the FOX news correspondent shortly after splitting from plastic surgeon boyfriend Brian Reagan in August.
Rick, 59, gifted Kelly, 43, with a monogram Louis Vuitton scarf and matching shades. They were both on display in a cute Instagram selfie she posted while at one of their stores in Italy.
“Thanks @rickleventhal for my scarf and sunnies,” Kelly wrote in the caption next to three heart emojis. The mother-of-one wore a yellow tank top and a big smile while standing next to her hunky man.
"A perfect look! He’s got style and good fashion sense,” one follower wrote. “Girl, u got that glow! Rick, thx for making our gal sooo happy,” another chimed in.
Another follower, or troll in this case, referred to Rick as Kelly’s “sugar daddy” in the comments section. Her former friend turned enemy Vicki Gunvalson said something similar about the Positive Beverage founder in a recent interview. She said that Kelly is an “arm ornament for older men.”
Kelly ignored the hater’s negativity and responded by saying that she’s found her “heart.”
The RHOC star made things social media official with Rick in August. They met at a party thrown by Real Housewives of New York City star Ramona Singer in early July 2019.
She dated plastic surgeon Brian, 54, for several months before getting with Rick. Kelly announced their split on Thursday, August 15, and vowed that it was permanent after the couple broke up one month prior.
“This is why I’m breaking up with Brian for good,” she declared in a series of Instagram Stories. “This is the last time. No going back to this a**hole. At all.”
Kelly was married to ex-husband Michael Dodd for over ten years before their divorce was finalized in early 2018. The former couple share a daughter named Jolie.
