Kelly Dodd and her husband Rick Leventhal just landed a pad in the Palm Springs area for around $715,000, and they’re planning on giving it a major makeover… TMZ has learned.
Kelly and Rick aren’t sure if they’ll keep the 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom estate for themselves or put it back on the market, but either way, they’ll renovate the property…the choice themselves. all materials.
The “The Real Housewives of Orange County” alum and former Fox News Channel correspondent told TMZ … they bought the house in November 2020, after making a cash offer.
We are told that the renovations include re-doing all the landscaping, building a Castina on the property and gutting all the bathrooms and the kitchen…they will also blow up the swimming pool, in adding a spa. And, it’s pretty awesome…they’re adding a pickleball court in the backyard.
Owning a house is not a new gig for the couple. Kelly and Rick still own a house in Newport Beach, and they rent out a house they own in the Hamptons.
They started dating in August 2019 and got engaged three months later. They tied the knot in pandemic style in October 2020. Kelly is known for her time in the franchise…which spanned 5 seasons.
She’s off the show now, but maybe HGTV and house flipping could be in her near future? ! 👀
