Before Bravo abruptly canceled The Real Housewives of Miami in 2013, Alexia Nepola (nee Echevarria) battled some challenging moments during her first three seasons. Fortunately, she returned to the show on Peacock, and later Bravo again, with her family in better spirits. Her son, Frankie Rosello, has made significant progress since his traumatic brain injury following Season 1, and her older son, Peter Rosello, has made personal strides since facing legal trouble and substance abuse issues.

Alexia’s love life also improved when she returned to RHOM. After facing a tragedy with her first husband, Herman Echevarria, Alexia married her third husband, Todd Nepola.

Alexia and Todd’s December 2021 wedding played out on the show. However, one month after the RHOM Season 6 finale, Distractify exclusively reported Todd filed for divorce from Alexia after two years of marriage. As the longtime Housewife prepares for another relationship ending, let’s look back at all of her ex-husbands.

Alexia Echevarria was first married to Pedro "Pegy" Rosello, whose legal issues were featured on 'Cocaine Cowboys.'

Long before she became a reality star, Alexia dealt with a lot of real-life drama with her first husband, Pedro "Pegy" Rosello. The pair met at a restaurant in Miami in 1987, and Alexia didn't realize at first that Pegy was involved in selling drugs for Willy Falcon and Sal Magluta.

As the couple was planning their wedding in the early '90s, Pegy was arrested on drug trafficking charges.

The duo eventually wed when Pegy was released on a one-year bond. They welcomed their first son, Peter, in 1992, and Pegy began serving out a five-year sentence shortly thereafter.

During his second release, Pegy and Alexia welcomed a second son together named Frankie. The couple split up in 1996.

Both Alexia and Pegy appeared on the hit Netflix docuseries, Cocaine Cowboys, to discuss Willy and Sal and their drug empire. As of 2021, Pegy was serving time at a low-security facility in Miami following a 2017 drug charge for possession with intent to distribute. He was set to be released from prison in 2022.

Alexia's second marriage to businessman and former Venue Magazine owner Herman Echevarria is a big talking point on Season 4 of RHOM. The reality star is addressing the longstanding rumors that her former husband was gay, and she is set to meet with his alleged former lover on the Dec. 30 episode.

Herman and Alexia started dating in 2001, and they got engaged about two years later. The pair wed in 2004, and they were together when the first three seasons of RHOM aired on Bravo (from 2011 until 2013).

A few years after the show's "cancelation," in 2015, Herman and Alexia separated. The two remained separated until Herman's sudden death in 2016.

Though Alexia had heard rumors about her late husband's sexuality throughout their marriage, she only began to realize the details of his double life after his death.

After about two years of dating, Alexia got engaged to Current Capital Group founder Todd Nepola in December of 2019. On Season 4 of RHOM, Alexia has gushed about her fiancé, and how she has never been happier. However, Todd's disagreements with Alexia's oldest son, Peter, threatened to derail their relationship. The Miami native said that she could not marry someone who didn't get along with her kids.

While viewers have yet to find out if Peter and Todd were able to set aside their differences, there must have been some sort of positive change, because the couple moved forward with their wedding plans.

The reality star was set to marry Todd in front of the cameras in August of 2021, but the two had to reschedule their nuptials because Alexia's mom died from COVID-19 shortly before their original wedding day. The pair finally tied the knot on Dec. 16 at the Eden Rock hotel in St. Barths.

During Alexia and Todd’s second year of marriage, the couple were subjected to rumors about their finances, which were a part of their storyline in Season 6 of RHOM. Alexia’s co-star, Adriana de Moura, hinted at the couple having marital issues due to Todd’s finances. The accusations came after Alexia and Todd moved out of her lofty Miami condo they were renting when the owners sold the building.

Despite Alexia stating on RHOM and the Season 6 reunion that her marriage was doing just fine, Todd filed for divorce in Florida on Thursday, April 11, 2024. Neither he nor Alexia has publicly discussed the reason for their split.
