Since the world first heard of Kelly Dodd's engagement to Rick Leventhal about a week ago, The Real Housewives of Orange County fans are learning more and more about her relationship with the Fox News correspondent. She already confirmed to Page Six that her 13-year-old daughter, Jolie Dodd, "hasn’t met Rick yet but she sees him on FaceTime...So she’s met him, but she hasn’t properly met him.”

And during BravoCon 2019, at the RHOC: The Juice Is Worth the Squeeze panel featuring the RHOC cast, she opened up about how her ex-husband, Michael Dodd, has taken the news. "Michael and I are kind of fighting right now," she said. "Unfortunately. We're not in the best shape right now."

When asked by panel moderator, Amy Phillips, the host of Radio Andy's Reality Checked, if he's jealous of the engagement, she responded, "Yes."

Kelly and Michael finalized their divorce in February 2018 after 11 years of marriage. In August, around the time she first met Rick, the former couple seemed to be in a good place, and Kelly made it clear that Michael is a great dad to their teen daughter.

Kelly and Rick became engaged on Wednesday, November 13. Kelly first went public with her relationship with Rick in August after announcing her breakup with Dr. Brian Reagan, who fans see her dating this season of RHOC. Kelly met Rick with The Real Housewives of New York City's Ramona Singer by her side at a barbecue in the Hamptons over the summer.

On WWHL, which aired Sunday, Kelly opened up more about becoming the future Mrs. Leventhal, sharing who she plans to invite to her wedding, below.
