Dodd started dating Leventhal this summer and has been spending a lot of time together. The reality star has been flying out to New York to visit him often. He also has made trips to Orange County to spend time with her.

Leventhal was there to celebrate Dodd’s recent birthday and threw her multiple parties. They even took an overseas vacation together visiting 5 different countries in six weeks.

Dodd leaned on her man in the days after her costar Vicki Gunvalson filed a lawsuit against her. The suit accused Dodd of defaming Gunvalson when she called her a con woman on “RHOC.”

Gunvalson was trashed endlessly for suing Dodd. She would voluntarily dismiss the lawsuit days later. The “Real Housewives of Orange County” reunion was filmed last week and sparks were expected to fly between Dodd and Gunvalson.

After taping, Gunvalson took to social media alluding she is done for good with the show.


Fans have been going crazy after Dodd showed off her engagement ring. Her costar Braunwyn Windham-Burke wrote, “Omg !!!! I’m so happy for you! Can’t wait to see you tomorrow and celebrate !!”

Another read “Amazing! Congratulations! Hoping @ramonasinger will be Maid of Honor! 💕” and “YOU DESERVE IT LIBRA QUEEN. CONGRATS @rickleventhal YOU CAUGHT THE BEST FISH IN THE SEA ❤️😘🤗”

“Omg I’m so happy for you!! Yayyy! You deserve to be loved the best ❤️❤️❤️😘 PS gorgeous ring !!💍💍” wrote a fan.

“Yay!!! Don’t let these dusty hags steal your joy, lord knows they’ll try. 🥂 “, one person said.

A hater wrote, “Great!!! Now you wont be on the show :) Too bad we won't get to see your divorce play out on TV..Unless you new husband is a freeloader which would explain the ridiculous engagement after you being in love with someone else last summer.”

One fan sent love, "NO!!!! F'ING!! WAY!!! You go girl!! And in my home town NY!! Congratulations Kelly!! So happy to see you happy again!! Much love to you from NY!! Oh and the ring is gorgeous!!!🍾🍾🍾😘❤❤."

Dodd has no plans to allow Leventhal to film “Real Housewives of Orange County”.
