Kelly Dodd has been rocking a glittering four-carat, pear-shaped diamond ring ever since her new boyfriend, news broadcaster Rick Leventhal, popped the question to her on November 13. It's a real-life fairytale happy ending for The Real Housewives of Orange County mom, who finalized her divorce from Michael Dodd (the father of her 13-year-old daughter, Jolie) in February 2018 after 11 years of marriage.
Viewers of RHOC have seen Kelly dating Dr. Brian Reagan this season; shortly after their breakup earlier this year, she met Rick at one of his summer barbecues in the Hamptons while she was visiting fellow 'Wife Ramona Singer.
Since then, it's been on and popping from coast to coast and beyond, as Kelly and Rick have fallen in love and have started to travel the world together. Both Kelly and Rick have been sharing pictures of their courtship and love on their social media feeds, with Kelly often referring to Rick as her "prince."

Kelly sure seems to be enjoying that East Coast life with Rick.She's even doing the theme party thing with him. Here they are, "steampunkin'!"
