The Real Housewives of Miami Star Is Fighting For Her Son Frankie Rosello's Recovery

March 12, 2024

The Real Housewives of Miami star is fighting for her son's recovery.

After her 13-year-old son Frankie Rosello was involved in a car accident, his mom Alexia Nepola decided to take a step back from her role on the hit reality show and appeared as a guest for Season 2 before returning to the main cast in Season 3. Since then, fans have watched Alexia and her family deal with the aftermath of the devastating incident. In an emotional Instagram post earlier this year, she revealed that her son continues to struggle with brain damage and she's working to help him become more independent.

The Cuban Barbie has showcased some of her most raw moments with the show since its debut, but she's been unafraid to use her platform to advocate for her son. On the latest episode of RHOM, she pounced on Adriana de Moura when she made a horrible analogy comparing her foot "injury" to her son's car accident that left him in a coma with permanent brain damage.

Alexia also brought her son Peter to film for the series, and in a confessional, she shared how he and his brother have developed a close bond since Frankie's accident. She's now partnering with The De Moya Foundation to help people with disabilities find employment, and she recently talked about the cause on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. She also gushed about her fiance Todd Nepola, whom she married in December 2019 after two years together.
