The Real Housewives of Orange County’s Alexis Bellino narrowly-escaped a near tragedy over the Independence Day Weekend. The socialite reality star almost lost her 20-month-old twin daughters, Melania and Mackenna, in a pool accident on Sunday.
Alexis and her husband Jim — a lifeguard — were celebrating the holiday at The Balboa Bay Club in Newport Beach when the incident occured. According to reports, The Bellinos left their twin girls and son James, 3, unattended by the pool for several moments before the stroller containing Melania and Mackenna rolled into the water.
Where are those pesky CPS officers when you need them?
TMZ.com reports: “…Sometime during the holiday celebration, Alexis and her husband Jim were off “doing something” … and the stroller — carrying 2 toddlers — toppled into the pool. According to multiple security officers on scene, the lifeguard pulled the stroller out of the water with one child still in it. Alexis’ husband dove in to save the other one.”
Fortunately, the twins did not require medical attention.
