Kelly Dodd got engaged to fiance Rick Leventhal right before BravoCon 2019, so naturally it was a popular topic of discussion when she arrived in NYC along with her The Real Housewives of Orange County cast mates. At the The Juice Is Worth the Squeeze panel panel, she shared more about how the two of them —and the exact role that her Real Housewives of New York City friend Ramona Singer played in introducing them.
Kelly explained to moderator Amy Phillips that Ramona introduced them "at a party in the Hamptons. Rick has a house in the Hamptons and a friend was like, 'Oh my God. There's gonna be tons of dudes there. We've gotta go to this birthday party...' that Rick was throwing in the Hamptons; it was his house. So [Ramona] drove me to Rick's house and introduced us."
She added that Ramona drove "like a bat out of hell" ... perhaps the phrase "tons of dudes" at the party had something to do with it?
When Amy asked if Ramona will be in Kelly's wedding, she coyly replied, "She wants to be. I was just with her yesterday."
And she might not be the only RHONY 'Wife taking part in the nuptials: "Dorinda [Medley] wants to officiate," Kelly revealed.
Set your calendars for 10/10/2020, everyone: not only will The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Cynthia Bailey and Mike Hill be tying the knot that day, Kelly and Rick will, too — with plenty of 'Wives in attendance!
