'Real Housewives of Miami' Star's Son in the ICU Following Car Accident

Alexia EchevarriaBravo's 'Real Housewives' are having a run of terrible luck lately.

'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' husband Russell Armstrong's suicide has dominated the news cycle this week, but another franchise has experienced its own tragedy. According to RadarOnline, the 13-year-old son of 'The Real Housewives of Miami' star Alexia Echevarria, Frankie, has been in the ICU following a horrific car accident on Sunday.

Although sources told the Miami Herald that Frankie's condition was "very bad" Thursday, Alexia updated her Twitter followers on her son's status Thursday night. "Frankie's pelvic surgery went well today thanks to God and all your prayers. He is stable and getting stronger day by day."

The driver of the car has not been revealed, and reports say that it was raining on Sunday when the accident took place.

The Miami housewives are undergoing a cast shakeup, but Echevarria confirmed that she will be back for Season 2 on her Facebook, the Miami Herald reports. Bravo has stayed true to form and not commented on whether a season 2 will happen let alone potential cast changes, telling the Herald in July, "We haven't made any announcements regarding a second season."

The Housewives re-unite:

I just paid $22.87 for an iPad 2 64 GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic
Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will
never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also
sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $674 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here
is the website we use to get it all from, http://HitPenny.com

glad to know her son is doing well. she appears to be a nice lady and the family seems very loving. now, about the cast of miami housewives. they've got to be kidding. Bravo has managed to make Miami the laughing stock of the country. there is sooooooo much wealth in miami, yet, they selected a mostly cuban cast with wealth that is certainly limited or non-existent. there is real grandeur everywhere in miami from charity groups to the arts to fashion, etc. that one lady seems to use lee black as a pimp and lee is a characature of herself. she has no style and needs some undergarments that work. cannot believe her husband isn't humiliated. while i criticize Bravo for scrapping the bottom-of-the-barrel to cast this show, the seriously big money people wouldn't dare subject themselves to public scrutiny by appearing on this show especially with the colombian tramp, lee black and the daughter of the "face".

I just scrolled down to read the other comments. I am shocked. What does a child coming so very close to death have to do with the TV show. Shame on all of you. There is too much bitterness in this world.

I think they should cancel all the housewives shows to avoid possible future problems with people dying/almost dying. oh yeah and to save us from having to hear these self indulged women

Jim,
You are soooo sooooo right. You would think other women and men would have more to do with their time and lives than sit around and watch a bunch of self centered fake people.

Wonder if the accident had anything to do with the "Under aged" drinking she allowed him to do???

that was her 17 year old not her 13 year old. when i was a teen, my parents allowed me a couple of sips of wine on holidays. it was part (italian) culture and part of wanting to see how i responded to liquor. didn't like it then and don't like it now.
