Welcome to the city where the heat is on, at night on the beach 'til the break of dawn! Otherwise known as Miami. We love nothing more than settling down for a Real Housewives of Miami marathon, and one of our favorite Sunshine State Socialites? None other than Alexia Echevarria! This glamazon hails from Cuba and lives in Miami with her husband, multimillionaire Herman Echevarria, as well as her two sons, Frankie Rosello and Peter Rosello (who are both from her first marriage to Pedro Luis Rosello).
Alexia is the executive editor of Venue Magazine, a lifestyle and society publication owned by her husband. The job constantly puts her in the spotlight. Basically, she's livin' the lifestyle of the rich and famous!
There's no doubt that Alexia has a charmed life, but her family has had their fair share of struggles. Alexia's son, Frankie, is recovering from a tragic car accident which put him in a medically induced coma and has left him with a speech condition called aphasia. "He’s a different boy, but I’m a different person too," Alexia says. "But life goes on. I don’t hide him. He comes to the office with me every day." Meanwhile, Alexia's other son, Peter, was arrested back in 2012 for punching a homeless man in the groin, and subsequently charged with felony battery. Good times!
