Real Housewives of Miami’s Alexia Echevarria has been a resident of Atlanta and her husband Herman has been here every weekend since their son Frankie began an intensive rehabilitation program at The Shepherd Center. Frankie was in a very serious car accident in Miami last August. He was in ICU at Holtz Children’s Hospital immediately after the accident. After more than one surgery and lots of recovery time, Frankie was transported to Atlanta for his rehabilitation. The whole family, including Frankie’s older brother Peter, was in town to celebrate Thanksgiving. Although Frankie’s status was touch and go at first, he continues to improve and his rehabilitation is going well. Alexia and her family are clearly very close and they have relied heavily on their religious convictions to keep strong during this crisis. Despite the enormous amount of stress, Alexia and Herman maintain a very positive attitude and are extremely gracious to their twitter followers.
Alexia will be appearing in season two of Miami Housewives which is scheduled to begin filming in January. Let’s hope that Frankie will be fully recuperated by then. Alexia is the executive editor of Venue Magazine.
