Alexia Echevarria Addresses the Family Tension Between Her New Husband Todd and Son Peter
The RHOM cast member opens up about the issues between her life partner and her adult son.
Fans are getting a front-row seat to Alexia Echevarria's life today during Season 4 of The Real Housewives of Miami. The RHOM cast member is not only learning more about her late former husband Herman Echevarria's life and alleged boyfriend, but she's also dealing with tension at home. Her then-fiancé, Todd Nepola, and her son, Peter Rosello, are at odds — and she's right in the middle of their ongoing issues.
Since the season filmed, Alexia and Todd married in December, but the stuff between Todd and Peter is still playing out in the season, which is currently airing exclusively on Peacock. And when Alexia appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Tuesday (January 4), she reflected on the tension playing out between her new husband and her eldest son during Season 4 of RHOM.
"It's different when it's your family. It's so much easier fighting the other girls. When you're, like, [dealing with] the family thing, it becomes so much more difficult," Alexia said, in the clip, above. "So, I think they're both accountable. You guys, obviously, are only going to see certain episodes, it's been going on for a few years. So I feel like they both do a good job [to be held accountable]. The viewers are going to see Todd's side of the argument, and they're also going to see Peter's side of the argument. And the truth is, you can never judge. You have to be at the moment and really know the whole story in order to form an opinion."
Alexia and Todd, who got engaged in 2019, wed two years later on December 16 in St. Barts. The wedding took place several months after their previously scheduled August date, which was delayed when Alexia's mom, Nancy, passed away. “I’m a wife!!! (A real one.) It still feels like a dream I can’t even put into words,” Alexia told Us Weekly just days after she and Todd said "I do." “[It was] perfect for us! Truly everything we wanted. Just him and I. … We look forward to celebrating with our friends and family in 2022.”
Alexia often posts photos and updates about her two sons — Peter as well as his younger brother, Frankie — on her Instagram account.
In 2020, she posted a birthday message for Frankie, which referenced the life-changing car accident he was in back in 2011. He now works with her at Alexia + Frankie's Beauty Bar. "You are my strength and my angel! God has been so good to me. He gave you as my son two times. You have taught me that no matter what, we all can find new ways to live our life and be happy with it. You have made me a better person. Every single day since you were born, you’ve added something amazing to my life," Alexia wrote. "You are a miracle by God. You are a gift to us from Heaven above. You are a reminder that life is fragile and we shouldn’t worry so much about the small stuff. You always have a smile to share, love to give, and something sweet to say. With you life is so much fun!! Happy Birthday my beautiful son ... continue to spread love and laughter and the gift of happiness. I love you."
As for Peter, Alexia has also posted a sweet birthday tribute to her eldest son in the past. "Never forget that I Love You and no matter how big you get or how far you go, I’ll always be here beside you. I pray God blesses you with good health and happiness in life. Happy birthday and may all your wishes and dreams come true every day!" she previously wrote on Instagram, adding the hashtag, "You are my favorite superhero."
