Put on some sunblock; we’re returning to Orlando, the “Magic City.” The Real Housewives of Miami will return to television on December 16, 2021, after an absence of eight years. Everyone wants to know what happened to Frankie on Real Housewives of Miami, even if they are eager to catch up on the new and recurring feuds.
Alexia Echevarria’s heartbreak is one of the more tragic storylines we’ve encountered in the franchise, though there is plenty of drama to attract reality TV fans. Her world was turned upside down in 2011 when her son Frankie, then 13 years old, was involved in a terrible car accident.
Where do things stand with her family at this point? Where has Echevarria been in the time since we last saw him? Following our return from the Turks and Caicos (courtesy of the Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip), we intend to reacquaint ourselves with our ladies from Florida.

Frankie Rosello, the second son of Echevarria, was born on FebrFebruary 25. Frankie, then only 13 years old, was severely injured in a car crash. His friend’s car lost control, crossed the median, and crashed into oncoming traffic while he was a passenger.
Frankie needed emergency brain and pelvic surgery and was rushed to the hospital. After that, doctors put him in a coma, and he remained there for three months. Frankie suffered permanent brain damage as a result of the accident.
Alexia + Frankie’s Beauty Bar is a nail and beauty salon in Florida that was opened by the reality star and her son in 2017. He is very involved and loves the customers, she said in an interview with Distractify. Many people have said, “He brightens their lives.”
After an eight-year hiatus, RHOM was picked up in 2021 for a fourth season. Echevarria expressed her delight at the prospect of fans finally getting to see Frankie again in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. She proclaimed, “I want to show everyone his progress.”
As one fan said, “I know so many people prayed for him, and that’s why I always wanted the show to come back.” According to Bravo.com, Frankie’s 25th birthday party was held at a bowling alley that year (2022). On Instagram, Echevarria also posted a slideshow of herself with Frankie.
“Happy 25th Birthday to my sweet, handsome, kind, caring, loving, compassionate, thoughtful, and amazing son,” she wished him. Being your mother is the best part of my life because you make us laugh and smile daily. Frankie commented, “I like this a lot. I love you, mom .”
What Happened To Frankie On ‘Real Housewives Of Miami’?
At 13 years old, Frankie Rosello was in the passenger seat of a car that lost control in the rain in the summer of 2011.

After hearing the news that his younger brother had died, the socialite’s older son, Peter, began lashing out and getting in legal trouble.
What Is Frankie Rosello Up To Now?
Both of Echevarria’s sons are healthy and successful eight years later. Frankie graduated from high school and, with his mother, opened Alexia + Frankie’s Beauty Bar(opens in new tab) in Surfside, Miami Beach. At the same time, Peter went to the Paris School of Business and got a job selling commercial real estate.
Despite other bumps in the road regarding her relationships, Echevarria said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight(opens in new tab) that she was incredibly excited to return to the series to show the world the progress her family has made.
“I can’t wait to show my son Frankie,” Alexia said. “I’d like to display his development for the world to see. Knowing that so many people were praying for him was one of the main reasons I wanted the show to return. And our whole family had a lot of supporters.”

However, while it will be great to see how much Echevarria’s sons have matured, the new season’s first episode will not be without its share of drama. Beginning with, “I’d like to know who hear you trust the least,” the teaser raises the stakes. We get a taste of arguments, accusations, and even a few Kim Kardashian references, like on the show (her ex-BFF Larsa Pippen is part of the cast).
Despite the impending mayhem, the reboot is notable for a few reasons. For one, it will be Peacock’s first entire Housewives franchise. Second, it marks the first time in Housewives history that a lesbian couple is featured on the show, with model Julia Lemigova and tennis player Martina Navratilova.
This casting was seen by many as long overdue. There are, therefore, some bright spots in The Real Housewives of Miami, even though there will undoubtedly be many bumps along the way.
