When asked if she knew the proposal -- which took place after only three months of dating -- was coming, Kelly said, "Well, not really. Not this fast, but I'm glad he did!" While she claims she didn't know the proposal would happen so soon, the divorced mother of one did have an inkling. After all, she said she "chose" the ring herself.
Admittedly running late for another engagement (pun intended), poor Kelly fumbled her way through an explanation of how Rick popped the question and what he said.
"He got on one hand... I said yes! We're actually running really, really late," she said, quickly adding, "So, yes, he got on his hands and knee -- his knee, and isn't this pretty?"
Long before Dodd said "yes" to Leventhal, she posted on Instagram that she had already chosen a wedding date: October 10, 2020. After the engagement, though, she told fans she was joking -- but now seems to be back on the 20-20 train. (No pun intended this time.)
"Our day is 10/10/2020," said the reality star, adding that she'd like to celebrate the big day in Napa Valley, California.
When asked if she'd ever consider joining the cast of "RHONY," given that Leventhal lives in New York, Dodd said, "Yes, I would!" with no hesitation.
"Actually, I'm really good friends with Dorinda [Medley], Sonja [Morgan]. I'm really good friends with Ramona [Singer]," she explained. "Ramona's the one who hooked me up with Rick! Dorinda said she would officiate it, and then Ramona hooked me up, so she's gotta be in it."
"He's Jewish and I'm Catholic," she added. "I'm not gonna have a rabbi and a priest, so we'll have Dorinda do it."
