Alexia Echevarria

Alexia provides some insight into her life, her boys, and her mother.

on Aug 12, 20130

So my mom, Nancy, is in Miami now. She lives in Madrid and has been living there for the past 20 years. She's decided to spend some time here, because I, as well as my kids, need her. She's a psychiatrist and a very strong and wise woman. My boys are close to her, and Peter especially feels comfortable talking to her.



I spend all of my days with Frankie. My day is filled with his therapies, driving to and from school, and Venue Magazine (Frankie comes along), and I have Peter there often helping out. I feel that integrating and exposing him to social settings has helped him in his recovery; his language and ability to communicate continues to improve.

Your sons need a lot of help. I don't doubt that you love them but your oldest is really lost. He just doesn't seem to want to change his life. And for the rapping, don't use a brain injury as an excuse for rank lyrics. Makes me wonder how good of an influence you are on your sons. Where is their Dad?

Alexia, I wanted to let you know of a place here in Bakersfield, California. It is called the Centre For Nuro Skills, and I think your son would definitely benefit from this facility. My mother-in-law has a brain injury with very similar side effects as your son, and she thrived there! Best of luck to you and your son, therapy and prayer will get him through this.

Haters will be haters! Keep doing your thing. The people who love you are the ones that matter the most. I hope to be as  good of a mother one day. loving, smart, and caring.

If you actually did "put family first" you wouldn't be on television. Instead Alexia "put Alexia first".

If you're such a great mother you might want to pay more attention to the homeless abuser pot smoking son of yours. Stop using the accident of your other sons as a excuse for his bad behavior he is not a kid anymore he's an adult.

On another note: I'm sorry for what happened to Frankie. No matter how anyone feels about someone, children are where the disagreements should stop. Best of luck to you.

Am i the only one who was disappointed when I found out Alexia would be rejoining the cast??

You really stood out in two scenes on the first episode. 

The first was you and Frankie driving in the car.  You are a patient, caring, loving, KIND, nurturing mother and that scene speaks volumes! He seems like a sweet kid and I pray he recovers back to 100%.

The second scene was you walking out of your car and into Lisa's house.  You were stunning.  Hair, outfit, jewelry...everything was perfect.

Good luck Alexia!

I think your a caring mother. I find your messages of love and optimism at the end of your post heartwarming but I must question why you would hash up your sons darkest and most shameful moment to take a cheap shot at Lea Black, a woman devoted to raising money and awareness to help kids in jeapordy of being thrown into jails as first time offenders. You need to think your moves out better if your going to go after someone eoevially if it's not true and if it compromises your own son. Shame on you.

Your son, Peter, belongs in prison! Stop making excuses for his behavior!!!!

Why do you always comes across as being so harsh and always judging and scolding the other housewives? Ease up a bit so we can all enjoy the show.  On another note, best wishes on Frankie's progress - prayers for him!

Watching what happened last year was heart breaking but your faith...love and grace was a wonderful gift to those watching. You are such a magnificent mother and a strong women.

I am definitely not a fan of yours based on the manner you behaved last season. I was hoping you would have gotten over your "childish and mean" behavior but by the way you were talking already, you still have alot of growing up to do.  Just remember one thing: Karma!

 

On the other hand, despite what I may feel about a woman who at times is so so ugly on the inside, as a mother myself, I am happy to see the improvement of your son, Frankie, and to see him laugh and smile so much. I know that must swell your heart with pride. It must  not have been an easy road for you. I can only imagine what you went thru.  I hope and pray for his continued recovery and may blessings continue to be upon him.

If she was truly putting family 1st she would get off of realty tv. Her son was just recently arrested for drugs. It doesn't matter how good of a mother you are or how much money you have, kids will still do things you never expected. If he couldn't handle his brother's accident & that caused him to act out last season, maybe he won't be able to handle having his life on tv. She doesn't need the money so it's time to really put them 1st & get off the show. He needs her now & needs to be out of the public scrutiny.

You have such a beautiful face and cheekbones. You should wear your hair up more often!

First of all, seeing your sons improvement is a miracle.  From one mother to another may your family continue to be blessed.  

 

Have to agree with piperbeau- mean girl and you didn't let up.  Can't figure out if you are just jumping on the bandwagon with this "Let's all hate Lea thing" or you really believe what Adrianna said about her making that comment.  Well we all know Adrianna has Lea's best interest at heart right??  So why wouldn't Adrianna lead you to believe that Lea made that  comment about your son, don't believe that she did  Church or no Church, come on.   You are so easy to over look Adrainna's LIE but Lea your ready to hang out to dry.  You are not the only mom that would go to bat for her son, so that is completely understood   IF Lea did say that.  But your rant  at Lea you shoveled out so quickly,  obviously you didn't consider the source, or maybe you just needed an excuse to "jump on the hate band wagon"?

I have mixed feelings about you! I do think your an awesome mom!! Your son has mad a major improvement since last season!! Kudos to all his hard hard work!!! and your for that matter!! I do think you were a mean girl last season with Karent! for some reason she struck you the wrong way, and you couldn't move past that! you kept picking and picking at her, all season!! She couldn't even smile without you having something to say about it... As far as Adriana goes she is a bold face liar!! their is a big difference between a marriage license and an official marriage certificate!! You know dam well she is lying!! She is married period!! If that was one of the other ladies lying about something like that you would be all over it... Because you sure had a lot to say about Karent's supposed fake relationship?! But yet Adriana gets a free lie pass??  hypocrite much?!

I was amazed to see how much progress your son has made since last season.  I hope and pray it continues.  What a heartbreaking experience to go through.

As a mother of a teenage son, I understand you protecting them and do not doubt you are a GREAT mother.

 

In the scene with your mom, I saw you bleeding from your cheek and then your son Frankie was taken out of the scene. Was this just a coincidence or did something happen that wasn't shown? I was concerned about your well-being.

From one latin woman to another, I find you, Anna, Marisol and Adriana an embarrassing representation.  You all claim to be professional women, strong and independent and yet you all act like highschool girls.    Adrianna's insecurities are so evident everytime she opens her mouth and screams (she really doesn't know how speak and have a normal conversation ).  You can tell that her  poor background has left her feeling inferior and so she is always defensive and combative.  On top of that,  It was an insult to all single mothers who have had to struggle for her to fake being on her own when she was married all that time.  You women need to watch the show to see how bad you all come off.  Yes! and you do need to spend less time on your hair and makeup.

@ashmae2010 , heavens NO. With all she claims to have it would seem she doesn't need the money and would spend time on and with her boys. The oldest is screaming for attention!

 @arthur-in-miami Alexia is disgusting and shameless.  She needs to fess up about her rotten criminal son and stop blaming Lea Black for telling the truth!

@arthur-in-miami , lea is the only HW on any of the shows who uses her stage to help others not herself. I read where she even donates most of this pay to her charity. That helps children of parents in prisons.

@Alph ,its horrible what he done!! make no mistake that I think he isn't. But if it was his 1st time in trouble I have to wonder if he's not screaming for some attention from his mom? She's been busy with the youngest and clearly spends a great deal of time on herself. He deserves punishment yes. I'm glad I don't have to decide what. Of course this was taped earlier so that may be done already?

 @Alph I agree. I was irritated when she said, "Stupid him he videotaped it." Like it would've been ok if he didn't videotape it.

 Oh thank you so much for your post I felt like I was the only one that saw how she treated Karent you are 100 percent right Alexia is a straighht up hyprocrite.

 @piperbeau

 Yes she is MARRIED! I wonder if she ever gets divorced she will backtrack to the date of her marriage license. Not wishing that she would get a divorce but definitely makes you think.

Well said RM15.  I agree with you 100% - especially about Anna.  She seems to have a huge chip on her shoulders about something and seems to take it out on others like Lea and Lisa.  I too have a Latin heritage and these women are portraying themselves very poorly.  It's like the more they put someone else down the better they feel about themself.  It's disgusting actually.  Adrianna's mouth is so foul.  She speaks about some of the other women having no class....she needs to take a good long look in the mirror!

 @RM15@GONZ thank you. it's about time someone set her straight instead of lying to her about how great she is.

@ambs2013 @piperbeau , I agree also. I'm also glad Anna isn't pictured in the group. I hope that means we don't have to see her mean ,smart mouth much this season? Loved when Lisa shut her down!

What is the deal with Anna?  I liked her but her viciousness during the reunion was insane.  She went on and on and on insulting Lea.  She may have had her reasons for being mad but she looked like a mean nutcase.  And frankly insulting Lea's age and looks coming from her was kinda cruel.  Anna isn't a supermodel and is aging as well. She should think twice before throwing stones.

@bai970 , Anna is a horrible person. Lea should sue her and Alexia for slander!
