Kelly and Michael Dodd have been working on their marriage since calling off their divorce, but has obtained exclusive documents revealing how tumultuous their relationship really was!

The new Real Housewives of Orange County star was hit with a restraining order in 2014 after a domestic violence dispute with her husband.

"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 read of the July 6, 2014 arrest.

Michael requested a protective order days later on July 11, asking to have "no personal, electronic, telephonic or written contact," with his then-estranged wife.

Michael, who shares daughter Jolie with Kelly, asked she not come within 100 feet of him and that they speak through a third party.

He modified the order on July 28, asking to have "peaceful contact with the protected persons named above only for the safe exchange of children for court-ordered visitation."

On February 4, 2015, the protective order was terminated.

The case was dismissed when Kelly completed 10 alcoholics anonymous meetings and six months of therapy for the arrest.

Kelly filed for divorce from her husband after six years of marriage on March 6, 2012 before the couple reconciled two years later.

On the most recent episode of RHOC, Kelly revealed her toxic history with her husband. She explained how once they got married he became "like Hitler" and acted like a "control freak."

"It was a nightmare," she said. "It made me realize it was easier being with him and having my family together than being divorced. We don't have a perfect marriage at all, but I'm going to suck it up like my parents did."

She then revealed how he was diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder.

The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Mondays at 9/8c on Bravo.
