Vicki Gunvalson spilled that Kelly Dodd had been banned from her daughter’s school on Tuesday night’s episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County — and AllAboutTheTea.com has the exclusive backstory. 

Kelly Dodd, 43, was booted from her daughter, Jolie Dodd’s Newport Beach school — Our Lady Queen of Angels — after getting into a brutal fight with another mom in the school parking lot, during a back-to-school night.

On September 10, 2015, Heidi Caldwell and Kelly Dodd both attended a back-to-school night at Our Lady Queen of Angels in Newport Beach — where their kids attended school together. The ladies have bad blood between them because Heidi was dating Kelly’s ex-fiance, Jeff Caldwell at the time — so tensions ran over when they saw each other at the school event. They got into a heated verbal exchange about fake designer bags and insulting appearances — that turned physical and Heidi suffered severe injuries.

AllAboutTheTEA.com spoke exclusively to Heidi Caldwell, the woman at the center of the controversy.

“Kelly physically attacked me at my son’s back to school night.” Heidi explained to AllAboutTheTEA.com. “Kelly’s a miserable, jealous, and an unhappy person.”


Arrest and Injuries

After the attack, Heidi Caldwell was left bloody and bruised with internal injuries, AllAboutTheTEA.com can confirm. The police were called to the scene, Kelly was taken into custody, and the court issued Heidi a restraining order against the reality hot head.


The Restraining Order

The victim clarified that Kelly Dodd was banned from Our Lady Queen of Angels campus due to the granted restraining order — which required Kelly to keep a 100 foot distance. 

Heidi Caldwell shared that she eventually transferred her son from the school the following semester, which allowed Kelly to return to the school grounds.

In another unrelated incident, Heidi shared that Kelly Dodd’s rage extended off the school campus and onto the Newport streets.

“She ran me off roads.” Heidi explained to AllAboutTheTEA.com. “I have a stack on her at Newport Beach police station.”

As AllAboutTheTEA.com exclusively reported, Kelly Dodd pushed her mother down a flight of stairs and routinely abused her mother while they lived together in Newport Beach. According to Heidi, Kelly’s ex, Jeff Caldwell witnessed the horrific stair pushing incident.

“She threw her mom down the stairs when my hubby lived with her (before me)…she’s a horrible, evil woman,” Heidi revealed to AllAboutTheTEA.com.

Heidi added, “She uses men for money and fame.”

As AllAboutTheTEA.com readers know, Kelly’s younger brother, Eric Meza, documented their mother speaking about the elder abuse in a revealing video recording. Press play below to watch.

Heidi also revealed that Kelly’s brother, Eric Meza, approached her after an altercation at the Newport Beach County Club — to apologize about his sister.

“Her brother Eric [Meza] came up to me at our country club, Newport Beach CC, and apologized to me about his sister.”

Heidi and Jeff were engaged at the time of the incident and later married.

Will Kelly Dodd’s costars call out her exposed temper as the season unfolds?
