Sad news coming out of Miami yesterday; RHOM star Alexia Ecchevarria’s ex-husband, 61-year-old Herman Ecchevarria was found dead in a Miami hotel room!
Alexia and Herman founded (and ran) Venue magazine, and although they recently divorced in 2015, they were very much a couple on The Real Housewives of Miami. They dealt with many ups and downs on camera, such as milestone celebrations, and the accident and traumatic recovery of her son.
Allegedly Herman was living in an apartment at the Epic hotel, and that’s where he was found alone yesterday morning. Family members and employees grew increasingly concerned when he didn’t show up to work. Loved ones believe he died in his sleep of a heart attack, but they are waiting on the official word from medical examiners. As of now the case is still under investigation.
Herman’s ex-wife Alexia released a statement on behalf of the family. “The Echevarria family is heartbroken over the sudden passing of our patriarch Herman Echevarria this morning. He was a family man, a hardworking businessman, dedicated to helping others and a pillar of his community that was loved by everyone who’s life he touched. We ask that you please respect our privacy during this time of grieving.”
The AATRH team is thinking of Alexia, her sons, and Herman’s family during this difficult time. We will let you know as soon as more details are released on his passing.
