Kelly Dodd has had a dramatic year, even for a Real Housewife.
She's faced wild accusations, ended a pretty serious relationship, and feuded intensely with multiple castmates.
But when she looks back on it all, it looks like 2019 is going to be considered a good year.
Why? Because it's the year when she began dating Fox News correspondent Rick Leventhal.
And it's also the year that Rick proposed to her with a massive diamond ring.
That's right: Kelly Dodd is engaged!
Wednesday night, Kelly Dodd took to Instagram to share this happy photo featuring Rick Leventhal, a huge ring, and this caption: "I can’t believe I just got engaged !! @rickleventhal you are my Prince and my dream come true!!!"
Kelly giddily shared the news
In addition to making sure that fans on social media got a good look at her ring, she and Rick also spoke to People. Kelly began by saying: "I’m beyond excited for our future together!"
She keeps singing Rick's praises
"Rick is my best friend. My partner in crime. I’m so in love," Kelly continues to gush.
It sounds like it's just now sinking in
"I can’t believe this happened to me," Kelly marvels. "I feel like I just won the lottery." To be fair, with a ring like that, she might as well have.
So how did he propose?
"He said this amazing speech about our love," Kelly describes. "And then got down on one knee and pulled out this giant ring."
She's at a loss for words
"I couldn’t believe it!" Kelly expresses. And yet it is oh-so real. Rick says so himself.
