All the upcoming drama in Alexia Echevarria’s life on "The Real Housewives of Miami" is, tragically, of the real variety. Her youngest son Frankie Rosello continues to recuperate from a major car accident, while her older son Peter Rosello remains a "work in progress" after being charged with felony battery after he punched a sleeping homeless man last year.
Here, we chat with Alexia as she cries, laughs, and sends a message to all the know-it-all critics in the blogosphere.
It can be hard when your friends want to talk about each other and you are in the middle of so many fights. Do we see that come to a head?
I actually like Lea and I like Adriana, and I think they both have a lot of valid points, so they are the only ones that can fix this problem. And it’s really interesting how it unfolds. For me, it's really tough because I kind of analyze both sides, and I can't make anybody change their minds about anyone. And I think it takes time. Sometimes you can't get in the middle so much. And I'm also in the middle between Lea and Marysol, and that is even more uncomfortable because I am very friendly with Marysol, and that is why I have a problem with Lea because it feels like I should pick sides and I have a problem with picking sides. That's just me. I have always been like that. I've always been the girl that gets along with everyone. And there has to be one, don't you think?
Agreed. So when you and Marysol hang out and you get snapped by the paparazzi, do you worry about Lea seeing the pictures?
I don't think about it. Lea loves Herman and my kids, and she always makes it a point to say she loves them, and the other day I go, “What about me? When are you gonna say ‘I love Alexia'?” And I said, “I know what your answer is. You're gonna say, 'I love Alexia when she picks my side.'” We were cracking up. Everybody is the way they are and I respect that. You'll see on the show I can be friends with both of them without being the gossip. I am not the type that talks. That's not my personality, because at the end, you're the one that comes out looking like an ass and you're in the middle.

Joanna did an interview recently where she described Adriana as a con artist. Thoughts?
