Alexia Echevarria Hit With Foreclosure Lawsuit On Miami Beach Home!

The Miami Herald reports that Alexia Echevarria faces the loss of her Miami beach home of 13 years. Echevarria, a magazine publisher known as “the Cuban Barbie,” on The Real Housewives of Miami has been slapped with a foreclosure lawsuit by BankUnited.

According to the court documents, the institution claims Echevarria stopping making payments in February on the mortgage on her home at 1175 North Shore Dr., near the Normandy Shores Golf Course in Miami Beach.

The Miami Lakes bank now wants $1,636,385.82, including interest, or the house will be sold at auction.

The property is now worth about $3 million, according to appraisers.

The former Bravo reality star has been living in the house since she married her now-deceased husband Herman Echevarria. However, Herman and Alexia were not married when he bought the house back in 2003, his name alone is on the deed, records show.

Herman died of a heart attack a year ago, and the house has been at the heart of a legal feud between Alexia, who wants to hold on to it, and Herman’s two adult sons from a previous marriage.

Earlier this year, Alexia filed a lawsuit against her stepsons, who are both executors of Herman’s estate. She wanted a judge to award her exclusive use of the property, while Nelson and Herman Echevarria Jr. demanded she leave so they can sell it.

To make matters even more complicated, Alexia and Herman were separated at the time of his death, something Alexia blamed on a “midlife crisis” that led to “self-destructive behaviors,” reports the publication.

That lawsuit was dismissed, and the fight moved to the probate court where Herman’s estate is being debated.
