Kelly Dodd often finds herself in the middle of controversy on The Real Housewives of Orange County due to her opinionated nature. Although she’s feuding with most of the cast from the Bravo show one area where she’s excelling is her love life. The RHOC star is dating Fox News reporter Rick Leventhal and things are going so well that Dodd has already picked out a wedding date.
News of marriage between Dodd and Leventhal took fans by surprise as the couple only recently started dating. It was Dodd that confirmed she had picked out a wedding date when a fan gave Leventhal a score of 10 out of 10.
As it turns out, Dodd was just cracking a joke as an insider claims she is not even engaged yet.
A second source talked to Hollywood Life who also denied that a wedding was happening next year. “[Kelly] has no plans to get married to Rick or anyone else for that matter anytime soon. She’s very happy, but there’s no plans to tie the knot at this time,” the source revealed.
The engagement announcement had taken Andy Cohen and Dodd’s fellow RHOC co-stars by surprise.
“I am literally in shock,” Vicki Gunvalson said during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live. “It is ridiculous… I don’t even think it’s been two months [of them dating].”
Tamra Judge weighed in on the news after Cohen asked her if she believed Dodd.
“No, she’s probably just drunk,” Judge answered.
Dodd quickly rebounded from her breakup to Dr. Brian Reagan who was just introduced on Season 14 of RHOC. It was the surgeon that first broke the news on social media that he was no longer dating Dodd.
“It’s time to stop,” he wrote in a now-deleted Instagram post. “Kelly Dodd and I are no longer dating. I wish her the best. I will not comment further about this personal matter on social media. Dating isn’t easy, doing so from afar makes it more difficult.”
“The universe is telling me I broke up with Dr. Brian, woo! And they all know why” the Bravolebrity said. “This is why I’m breaking up with Brian for good. This is the last time. No going back to this a–hole. At all.”
“Dr. Brian Reagan posted what we broke up. I’m deeply saddened and I only wish him the best. Good luck, you are a talented surgeon. I loved you deeply. See Rick Leventhal, we broke up”, she wrote in the now-deleted post.
In a statement to People, Dodd expressed how happy she was dating Leventhal: “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.”
