Real Housewives of Orange County star Kelly Dodd sent the rumor mill into overdrive when she posted on social media that she had already picked a wedding date with boyfriend Rick Leventhal. However, the reality star and the Fox News correspondent aren't even engaged yet! The couple have reportedly discussed marriage but he has yet to officially pop the question.
Kelly, 43, and Rick, 59, started dating shortly after her split from plastic surgeon Brian Reagan at the beginning of August. The pair met at a party in the Hamptons thrown by Real Housewives of New York City star Ramona Singer in July and they have gotten quite serious in their brief time together.
The Bravo star got people talking after she hinted that they had already lined up a date for their wedding. "Rick seems much better than the doctor. Normal and works for Fox. That's a 10/10 perfect score for me," one fan wrote on Instagram. "That's weird because we are getting married 10/10/2020," Kelly responded.
"Kelly and Rick are head over heels in love and have already been talking about getting married, but there’s nothing official yet. They’ve known one another for a short time but it’s been a very deep connection. They are in love. It’s special. They have great chemistry," a source told People.
The lovebirds are currently on a romantic European vacation in Amsterdam, after stops to Capri and the Amalfi coast. When reached for comment, Kelly couldn't help but gush about her new man. "He is amazing. He is hot, uber smart. We laugh so much and we say the exact same things at the same time. He is worldly, generous with me, and most importantly, loving. I’m so happy," she told the outlet.
Kelly was married to ex-husband Michael Dodd for over a decade before their divorce was finalized in early 2018. They share custody of daughter Jolie, 13.
Kelly's love life might be soaring sky high but her relationship with her RHOC costars is definitely not. Vicki Gunvalson brought up a rumor about Kelly allegedly participating in a "sex train" to fellow castmates Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, Gina Kirschenheiter and Braunwyn Windham-Burke on a recent episode and it caused some major drama. Tamra recently declared that she would never be friends with Kelly again after she did something "very hurtful and damaging" towards the end of the season.
