Alexia Echevarria

Alexia explains why it was so important for her to open up about her first husband.

on Aug 27, 20130

Hi everyone! Hope you are enjoying this season so far.

There are a lot of things to talk about this episode. I will start by talking about the most important thing to me, which is my family.

It’s really difficult to have to talk about something that happened 23 years ago. Something that stirs so many mixed emotions -- happiness, sadness, fear, shame, guilt. Something that no matter how much I tried to hide it, erase it, and forget about it still haunts me today. At the same time, it's uncomfortable to have to speak about my ex-husband, the biological father of my children, after we have been legally divorced for over 17 years. As you all know, I've been happily married to Herman for the last 13 years. Peter and Frankie have always lived with me and Herman. Basically my boys have been blessed with having two fathers in their lives.

Hi Alexia. I just wanted to let u know that in despite all the criticism surrounding your past everybody has a second chance to rebuild is life. I was impressed you wanted to go the Lia's Gala because of the kids, so it speaks a lot about you as a human being.  Prayers for your son that get well.. Blessings...

Well I hope you realize that you can't believe everything (or anything) that Adrianna tells you.  She is a master manipulator.  I applaud you for putting your real life out there on tv.  Clearly some people only want to live in a fantasy.  Hoping that your family gets thru the tough times, and comes out stronger and better.

I wouldn't associate with any of you with the possible exception of Lea Black.

I thought you were smarter than to fall for Adriana's lies, apparently I am mistaken. She is a jealous nasty woman who has difficulty expressing the truth, ever!

I'm sorry that you're back on the show....because you are a phony......and we're not interested in you whatsoever.

It must be really hard to still be dealing with the past after all this time. I admire your strength. I don't have children of my own yet, but can imagine how difficult it must be to carry everyones struggles and issues on your shoulders. I've learned that positive thoughts bring positive outcomes, so keep doing what you're doing. I'm sure your sons will turn out just fine with your continued guidance.

Absolutely love how strong of a woman you are & how you always think about your kids first. Touching story & it's great to see how everything has worked out and that your kids have two loving fathers by their side. Eres un orgullo Latino!

That's very admirable of you coming out and talking about your past. It's never easy, but you have accomplished so much and there is still so much a head for you! Keep inspiring!

 I support you and your sons, but there is no reason to attack Lea. She did nothing wrong!

Why shouldn't you believe Adriana? Because she is lies constantly and is obviously on a crusade against Lea.

O.k. the key here is Audriana who is having troubles with Lea is telling you lies about Lea.  Someone that lies about her own marriage is exactly a reliable source right?  It was so nice to see your two sons.  I do not condone your oldest son's horrible actions.  How is the homeless man he attacked?  You didn't mention his condition after the attack.

If Adriana is willing to lie about being married, what's to stop her from lying about what Lea supposedly said, regarding your son? There is an old saying that goes, "You can trust a thief, but you can never trust a liar". The reason being that you can see what a thief is stealing, but you can never see into the mind of a liar.

Please do me a favor and don't mention the fact that you have any latin blood.  You are not worthy.

It was great to see your son-Frankie rap. Rapping is such an amazing talent and he does have that talent! So happy for him and you :)

 

I am so glad you are back this season. Like I have said before I am a big supporter of You, Ana and Marysol. You three are beautiful and intelligent woman. Like you said in your blog, you are staying away from Lea and Adrianas' issue and the is the smart thing to do. You could be a friend to both and still focus on what really matters, which is You and your family. Because like you do NOW- you need to LOVE yourself first, to help, lead and be the AMAZING mother you are! XOXO

Alexia I wouldn't trust Lea or Adriana past a casual friendship. They both are manipulators on different levels. I think Lea is playing dumb about Adriana's marriage because it suits her anger that she wasn't supported over Ana. Your mom is smart and family the perfect help for your family. I love your honesty about your family! My stepson is making bad choices and not listening to advice, so I feel your frustration. Best wishes

Adriana is using you. She is the liar in this whole scenario. I hope you will see her true colors soon.

I know the struggles on being a mom to boys and really feel for you in that respect, but the Latina connection really needs to end. Adriana is a liar and Ana is an instigator and really mean to boot. Lea has the least to lose in this fight - she doesn't need the money and has a life unlike Ana and Adriana.

First and foremost, I am glad to see Frankie's progress. I can only imagine what you and your family have gone through. As a mother myself, I don't know how I would get through something like that happening to one of my children. I admire this about you.

 

Your blog seems kinder to Lea this week...I don't know if it's because of criticism towards you in the previous two weeks, or if it's because you're posting how you feel in regards to each episode. I truly hope that you are seeing how Adriana is twisting the truth each week to make herself look better to different people. It seems obvious now that Lea never knew bout Adriana's marriage, even though Adriana made the comment about Lea knowing about it and being her Maid of Honor earlier. That girl is spinning lies like a whirling dervish!

 

As far as thinking that Adriana already being married is no big deal...Well, I'm sorry Alexia, but it is a HUGE deal to many viewers. Not everyone in the USA is from your culture, and being legally married here means that you're married...period...whether you are married in a courthouse or a church. You don't go around acting like you're single on TV, or even with your closest friends. It's deceitful and wrong, IMO.

Does it ever bother any of you Adriana cannot accurately repeat a filmed conversation or acknowledged the words in a notarized document?  You are being a flat out two-faced creep to Lea.  Fiends good or casual do not allow those around them to speak in such horrible terms about another friend.  Who was it that said, "it is not the words of your enemies but the silence of you friends?"

I don't care about your past. I totally read over that. It looks like the boys need a positive MALE role model in their lives to guide them. You and your mom are women, they need men to put them back on track.

Why shouldn't you believe Adriana? Because she's the same woman who has been lying to everyone's face for over five years!

 

 

  You also didn't address Lea coming to the defense of both you and Peter in the press when the whole story came about him. You have enough problems going on right now, it would be wise to stay away from Adriana.

Your not butting into this one??!! Really Alexia?? Seriously?! Stop playing coy! First off You've had a lot of negative things to say about Lea!! and all you ever do is praise Adriana!! So stop playing dumb!! Not for nothing Alexia I thought you were a lot smarter than that! You actually sound silly in this blog! Your basing your judgment on Lea with all this he said she said bullsh*t... Seriously?! You sound like a high schooler! What's funny to me is all we ever see is Adriana, Marysol Ana and you talking smack on Lea!! Really Alexia you know and we all know that Adriana has proven herself a liar! First lie, the b*tch is already married!! WTF?! are you serious?! second lie, she told you ladies that Lea knew she was married!! And from watching the argument between Adriana and Lea she definitely didn't know Adriana was married period! So stop pretending that your a neutral party! Your not! You talk about Lea!!! all the time!! Own it.... And if you don't have proof someone was actually talking about you and your family you probably shouldn't go on national television and call them out for it... It just makes you look ridiculous! and naive! mean and vindictive!

Good luck with staying out of it, Lea won't let that happen, it's her way or no way. You are a strong woman. I don't believe Lea gave Adriana anything, she got jewelry and artwork at a discount, I am sure. Good luck with your boys.

What the hell was that blog about the ex? It made NO sense to me, it's like you need to finish the story you started to tell...........

Alexia, I know how hard some of us mothers fight for our children. Pray for them to go down the right path and never give up. As for Lea, you need to open your eyes. Adriana has lied constantly to everyone including the viewers. If she was trying to keep it from everyone then why go on a show where you will be in the public eye when you know secrets will come out. She played Lea by acting like a single mother in need when she had a wealthy husband. I back Lea TOTALLY!!!! It wasn't your money that Adriana took it was Lea's so you should have Lea's back. Be a role model for your boys and be around positive people like Lea and not evil people like Adriana.

I enjoy watching scenes with Frankie. god bless him and may he continue in his progress and recovery. As for the "girls", I just wouldn't trust wholeheartedly anything Adriana says. Get confirmation before you believe her.

Obviously Adriana lied to you and Lea never said what Adriana told  you.  It has been proven that Adriana lies to get what she wants and she wants you to turn on Lea.  Don't buy into Adriana's lies!

 That was Lea that repeated that phrase.  Not sure who the originator was.

 I have to agree with you that Alexia should acknowledge Lea's true statement about Peter.  It just goes to show she is envious of Lea as well.

 I think she gave her way more than that, she said she had nothing and Lea helped her out, all the while she was married.

 @Dreid123 Alexia dislike of Lea is completely blinds her. Adriana and Frederic continually lied. I love the flashbacks. Clearly these women are delusional. Legally married is married even without the ceremony.  I too remember when the story broke about her son assaulting the homeless man and Lea said exactly what she said on the show.  I can not wait for the Marysol eanteria episode. What a joke? Do you think this woman has not watched the show to know of the beef between she and Lea? Just said.

 Are you joking? I would love to see you try. You might not be a fan of rap, but to think that it is easy and that anyone can do it is the joke.
