Alexia Nepola has two ex-husbands, and her first husband has a drug kingpin past.

Before she was Alexia Nepola (and wife of Todd Nepola), the RHOM star was married twice — first to Pedro Rosello and then to Herman Echevarria.

Her first husband and the father of her children — Pedro “Pegy” Rosello Sr. — is an interesting figure, as he was featured in the Netflix docuseries Cocaine Cowboys: The Kings of Miami as an associate of Augusto "Willy" Falcon and Salvador "Sal" Magulota's. Pegy’s drug kingpin days aren’t as far behind him as some would think; he was arrested and convicted for attempting to sell 5 kilos of cocaine to an informant in 2017 and was sent back to prison.

Alexia Nepola’s son Frankie was in a near-fatal accident.

In August 2011 Alexia’s son Frankie was in a terrible car accident. The accident was nearly fatal, and his brain was severely injured. Frankie’s road to recovery was long, but now he’s living a good life. Alexia shared an update in February 2023, saying, “I thank God every day for allowing me to still have my Frankie. I have survived heartaches of all kinds ... I hope to inspire all people to believe that remaining positive will eventually lead to a happy and healthy future.”

In November 2023, Alexia told Distractify in an exclusive interview that running Alexia + Frankie’s Beauty Bar alongside her youngest son has given them a "purpose and routine."

"He's very involved, and he loves the customers," she told us at the time. "He brings so much joy and happiness to people. We have customers who walk in, and you can already tell they're gonna have a bad day. But, then Frankie opens the door and says, 'Good morning, you're so beautiful.' He really does bring a smile to everybody's faces."

Peter Rosello Jr. has had trouble with the law in the past.

Peter, like his father, has faced his own legal issues. He was arrested in 2012 for attacking a homeless person after footage was found of him on YouTube in which he ran up to a homeless person and punched him. He was charged with felony simple battery, for which he took a plea and pled guilty to avoid jail time. In 2022, he was arrested for domestic battery by his ex-girlfriend, and the charges were dropped a month later.
