How much drama can a “Real Housewife” handle?

In an exclusive interview with Page Six, Marysol Patton revealed that “Real Housewives of Miami” co-star and BFF Alexia Echevarria was having a hard time processing the news of her son Peter Rosello’s arrest for domestic violence.

“It was difficult for her, obviously,” Patton, 55, said, explaining that she inquired with Echevarria, 54, via text message after the alleged incident made headlines.

“I said, ‘I know you probably just want to shut the world down and have your phone blow up. You call me when you feel better. So we kind of talked a few days later.

Rosello was taken into custody on January 6 and charged with felony battery after being accused of kicking and slapping his girlfriend during an argument. His bail was set at $1,500 and he was eventually released from jail.

When Patton finally reached out to Echevarria, she was impressed with her best friend’s show of strength.

“She felt better,” band founder Patton said, explaining that Echevarria’s mood improved once Rosello “came out.”

According to Patton, there’s more to the story than audiences may soon find out, via Echevarria.

“She actually had some very interesting information about exactly what really happened,” she told us. “So I’m sure she’ll explain herself.”

As the arrest unfolded in the press, an explosive two-way argument between Rosello, Echevarria and now-husband Todd Nepola aired on Peacock’s “RHOM” reboot.

Nepola, 49, slammed mother and son for perceived missteps in the way they cared for Frankie Rosello over the years. Echevarria’s youngest child and Peter’s little brother, 24, received substantial therapy – he even had to learn to walk and talk again – after suffering a near-fatal car accident in 2011.

“I was so sick to my stomach,” Patton said of his reaction to the scene, which began with a heated exchange between Peter and Nepola before Echevarria walked into the room with Frankie to share his thoughts on the situation.

“I was crying when I saw her and Frankie hiding in the kitchen listening to their conversation. It was killing me. They were just like those two little birds holding each other , just looking inside, watching this really difficult situation. It’s really hard to watch.”

In the end, the trio resolved their differences and hugged Frankie.

“It’s a testament to who Alexia is as a person and who she is as a mother. She will do whatever it takes to make sure everything is okay and there is peace in her life. family,” Patton said of Echevarria, who shares Peter and Frankie with ex Peter Rosello Sr.

The “Miami” cameras also captured Echevarria’s search for inner peace. Patton supported her pal as she sought closure by meeting her late ex-husband’s secret gay lover, Herman Echevarria, who died in 2016.

“I was all discouraged by it all. I was like, ‘No way, this whole other life was going on? Definitely not.’ I was shocked. And I wouldn’t have gone to meet him, I wouldn’t have wanted to know anything,” Patton said. “When she explained to me why she wanted to meet him, then I understood and it made sense. for me.”

Alexia revealed that she finally found healing after a lengthy off-camera chat with Herman’s partner, who answered questions about their relationship in detail for four hours.

“She knew that this person would be able to tell her if Herman was happy at the end of his life and that’s all that mattered to her,” said Patton, who misty-eyed as he remembered Herman, a man she considered “family”. ”

“I was like, ‘Wow, that’s beautiful.’ We have to know that Herman was happy and OK in the end. He was a good guy. He took care of everyone, “she continued. “Thinking about him kind of takes me back. I miss so many people from the past.

Topping the list, however, is Patton’s mother, Elsa, who died aged 84 in 2019.

During Bravo’s original run of “RHOM” from 2011 to 2013, the beloved matriarch – better known to fans as “Mama Elsa” – won a passionate following for her vibrant personality, soulful remarks mind, her psychic abilities and, most notably, the tireless love she had for her daughter.

“When I watched the opening [of ‘RHOM’ Season 4] and I heard his voice, I burst into tears,” said Patton, who “didn’t expect” to hear his mother’s thoughts on Magic City set the tone for the series’ latest installment. “[It was] very moving for me.

Patton said she was touched by how “everyone remembers” Elsa a decade after her reality TV debut.

“I think it helps her be a brighter, happier spirit with all that love coming her way,” she said.

Patton also noted that a clairvoyant friend recently passed on messages from Elsa: She guides her daughter’s “RHOM” retaliation and endorses her husband, Steve McNamara, who the publicist married in 2021.

“He was talking to me in my mother’s voice saying, ‘I love this man you’re with. He’s so good. And I’m so happy to be the voice of reason amidst all this nonsense. [on ‘RHOM’]. Apparently she’s happy with it [all]. ”
