Kelly Dodd’s Father Also Charged With Assault in the Past


According to a new report, a bad temper runs in RHOC star Kelly Dodd’s family. Kelly’s father was charged with assault years before she was arrested for a similar crime. Documents obtained from the City of Phoenix Municipal Court, reveal that Frank Meza was charged with assault on March 20, 1992.

The case was later dismissed without prejudice.

Kelly was slapped with a similar charge when her then-estranged husband Michael filed a restraining order against her in 2014 after a domestic violence dispute.

“Kelly Denise Dodd did willfully and unlawfully inflict corporal injury resulting in a traumatic condition upon [Michael Dodd], who was the spouse of the defendant,” the court papers, obtained by RadarOnline, read of the July 6, 2014 arrest.

The protective order was terminated on February 4, 2015, and the case was dismissed when she completed 10 AA meetings and six months of therapy for the arrest.

Dodd was hit with a second restraining order when her then-boyfriend’s estranged wife filed.

“Within the last two years, Kelly Dodd on numerous occasions has sent emails and texts to me, which are derogatory in nature, inflammatory and harassing,” Dana Caldwell wrote in her declaration. “She attempts to conceal her identity by sending such text messages from the phone of Jeff. She has also sent inappropriate messages from his iPad concealing that it is her.”

The case was dismissed on February 18, 2014.
