After her nasty split from her ex-husband Michael Dodd, Real Housewives of Orange County star Kelly Dodd is rebounding with a hot new guy and having the time of her life. According to a new report, Kelly is dating hunky Los Angeles based entrepreneur Rick Tadylin, and he treats her like a “goddess.” Could the reality star have found the man of her dreams just weeks after she finalized her divorce from Michael?
Per Radar Online, Kelly didn’t waste any time jumping back into the dating game and is currently seeing Tadylin. An insider claims that the two recently went on a date to Craig’s in L.A., and then went out again the next night because he is really into her.
During one of her dates with Tadylin, Kelly took a picture with the hottie and then posted it on Instagram. The 44-year- looked happier than ever and wrote in the caption that she was with her “favorite human.”
“Rick treats Kelly like the goddess that she is, which is what he says she deserves,” Tadylin’s friend told Radar. “They are just enjoying getting to know each other right now, with no labels.”
Tadylin owns several businesses and is a world-traveler who loves to post pics on social media with snarky captions. During a visit to Australia last summer, he shared a photo from Sydney and wrote about how beautiful it was, and how it is the only place he would consider living outside of L.A.
As for Kelly, she and Michael finalized their divorce in February after 11 years of marriage, and the couple shares 11-year-old daughter Jolie. Michael had an affair with a much younger woman throughout the entire marriage, and after splitting a few years back and then reconciling, he and Kelly finally decided to call it quits for good this time.
Kelly and her co-star Shannon Beador both just got out of bad marriages, and the two are sticking by each other’s side as they move on and put the drama behind them. The women are starting a new chapter together, and they recently went out for a night on the town at Bravo star hotspot Craig’s and snapped pics that Beador shared on her Instagram with the caption, “two single gals in LA,” and the hashtag #sistersinourjourney.
Beador announced her split from husband David last October, and last month the court granted her $30,000 a month in spousal and child support. But instead of giving her full custody of her three daughters, the judge ruled that she and David will have joint legal custody of Stella, Adaline, and Sophie.
Kelly Dodd returns for Season 13 of Real Housewives of Orange County later this spring on Bravo.
