Kelly Dodd and Rick Leventhal may be in engaged bliss but not everyone is happy about their plan to walk down the aisle.
The Real Housewives of Orange County star reveals that her ex-husband Michael Dodd is “upset” over her engagement and has threatened to “expose” her as a result.
“It’s very contentious right now. He gets upset,” Kelly told Us Weekly on Thursday, November 14. “He knows who [Rick] is. And he’s very mean about him. He calls him Gonzo. And then he’ll send me pictures of him, he’s just mean. He’s not happy for me.”
“He wants to come after me. He says, ‘I’m going to expose you.’ I’m like, ‘OK, go head, expose me,’” she explained. “It’s already out there! Everything’s out there. There’s nothing you can say or do that I haven’t been exposed about.”
On the other hand, Kelly’s daughter, Jolie, is super excited about her mom’s engagement.
“Oh, my gosh, she is so excited. She’s like my partner. She’s such a good kid,” Kelly confessed. “She’s got it going on. She knows exactly what she needs to do to get to the next place.”
The RHOC star went on to dish about her very romantic proposal and how she knew that Rick was the one from the moment they met.
“I’m feeling great! I’m excited,” Kelly revealed before detailing Rick’s proposal. “He has a terrace that looks over the Empire State Building and Chrysler Building. Beautiful, with a fire and a bunch of flowers. And he got on one knee and said, ‘You’re the love of my life.’”
“I knew right when I met him! Ramona [Singer] introduced me to him. I knew it was fireworks right off the bat,” she gushed.
Speaking of the Real Housewives of New York OG, Kelly says Ramona wants to be a bridesmaid in her upcoming wedding.
However, it turns out Ramona isn’t the only one who wants a role in Kelly’s ‘I dos.’
“I just had lunch with her today She wants to be a bridesmaid,” Kelly revealed. “Dorinda [Medley] wants to officiate it. I talked to Dorinda today.”
Kelly and Rick’s wedding will likely feature a bevy of Real Housewives from across the country. The RHOC star also cites former RHOBH star Brandi Glanville and RHONJ OG Teresa Giudice as two of her good friends.
“[Brandi] just called me and wanted to range tonight and I told her, ‘I’m in New York,’” Kelly noted. “I’m friends with Teresa. She called me today. I’m really good friends with Teresa.”
Meanwhile, Kelly also dished about the upcoming season 14 reunion, which the RHOC cast filmed on Friday, November 4th.
“I have Emily and Braunwyn here, my homegirls. The other ones, not so much,” Kelly admitted.
Kelly also revealed that she gets “uncomfortable” when thinking about seeing Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador and Vicki Gunvalson after filming the season 14 reunion.
“Some had closure [at the reunion], some didn’t. You’ll have to wait and see, it’s really good,” she added.
The Real Housewives of Orange County air Tuesdays at 9 pm EST on Bravo.
