The 13-year-old is in intensive care after the horror smash on August 14, involving a car he was a passenger in.

Real Housewives Of Miami star Alexie Echevarria is keeping a bedside vigil for her son Frankie who was badly hurt in the crash. He has undergone surgery and doctors say his condition is “very bad.”Details of the crash are unknown, but wet weather is thought to have been involved — Miami was hit by heavy rain around the time of the accident.

Alexia has been tweeting from Frankie’s bedside, sharing updates on his condition with fans.

On Thursday, August 18 she tweeted, “Frankie’s pelvic surgery went well today thanks to God and all your prayers. He is stable and getting stronger day by day.”

“Your prayers are helping Frankie and our family be strong! Much love.”

When she’s not on screen on the Bravo show, Alexia is the executive editor of glossy Latin fashion magazine Venue.

She is married to businessman Herman Echevarria and has two sons from a previous marriage, 13-year-old Frankie and Peter, 18.

The news comes just days after The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong’s estranged husband, Russell Armstrong, committed suicide.

What a terrible week for the Housewives. Let’s hope Frankie pulls through and makes a full recovery.
