Rick Leventhal says his marriage to Kelly Dodd has nothing to do with why he wasn’t invited to daughter Veronica Leventhal’s wedding ceremony.
“My issues with my eldest daughter go back years. This isn’t about Kelly,” Rick, 62, wrote in an Instagram remark, after a fan requested why he wasn’t in attendance.
“If & when my daughter is ready to apologize and talk to me, we will work on repairing our relationship,” he continued. “In the meantime she can live the rest of her life knowing she excluded me (& my wife) from her wedding. This is on my daughter, not Kelly.”
Rick’s assertion comes after a number of followers have requested “The Real Housewives of Orange County” alum and the previous Fox News reporter why they weren’t invited to see Veronica, 31, marry Will Greszes on Saturday.
Dodd, 46, additionally addressed her followers, dubbing her step-daughter “evil” and a “narcissistic spoiled brat.”
“Who doesn’t invite their own Dad to their wedding ?” she tweeted on Monday. “Everyone knows she’s a narcissistic spoiled brat ! [My daughter] Jolie and my friends hate her. Ricks friends hate her as well !! Always two sides to a story !”
The former actuality star added in different tweets that Veronica is “evil,” claiming she referred to as her grandfather a “little bitch,” left her dad “high and dry” even yelled at 15-year-old Jolie.
Dodd then went on Instagram Live the place she defined how Veronica was initially a “big fan” of hers. However, issues allegedly took a flip after Veronica publicly began speaking poorly about Dodd.
“I had nothing to do with this,” Dodd reiterated. “She went and got married and i wish her the best … Rick is terribly hurt by this and she did it out of spite and it’s just sad.”
The “The Rick & Kelly Show” podcast hosts started courting in August 2019, with Dodd confirming their engagement in November of that 12 months. The couple wed in matching black outfits in October 2020.
The couple’s rep didn’t instantly return Page Six’s request for remark.
