After the newlyweds announced they got married in an intimate Charleston courthouse ceremony on Nov. 16, Leva is sharing insight into what makes the lovebirds such a winning pair.
While Leva still hasn't met her BFF's man of almost two years, she described Brett as low-key and coming from a "pretty conservative" background.
"I heard he doesn't drink really," she exclusively told E! News while promoting her upcoming Bravo spinoff Southern Hospitality. "He seems really quiet and nice."
She said Brett reminds her of her own husband, Lamar Bonaparte, adding, "He's in the background and lets her shine and run around the room. It's sort of a good pairing. I think she's never dated a guy like that."
"The first conversation she had with me, she's like, 'He doesn't even have social media,'" Leva continued, "I'm like, 'Yeah, that's the kind of guy you need.'"
"I'm happy for her because I think that that kind of a relationship can be sustainable," she continued, "there's no competition."
Leva also says she understands why Madison kept the invite list to her nuptials so small and didn't invite any Bravo co-stars.
"I think that doing marriage in an intimate ceremony's probably the right way to do it," she explained. "I eloped so I'm probably the wrong person—I'm not a big wedding person. I think it's the right thing to do because it's just such a private thing. I'm super excited for her and I think he seems so wonderful, like a really, really nice guy and it's great for her and her son. I can't wait to see the pictures."
Southern Hospitality premieres Monday, Nov. 28, at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
