'Real Housewives' Kids Rescued in Pool Accident

7/6/2010 6:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"The Real Housewives of Orange County" star Alexis Bellino nearly lost two children on July 4th when she left her stroller unattended ... and it rolled into a pool -- this according to security at The Balboa Bay Club in Newport Beach, CA.

'Real Housewives
Sources at the pool tell TMZ that 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.

But Jim tells us a slightly different story -- claiming, "There was no lifeguard needed or involved."

We're told both of the Bellino children are fine and didn't need medical attention.

How can a father say, the lifeguard was not needed...when the lifeguard saved one childs life and he had to dive in to save the other! I hope blood test were done on both parents, maybe they thought doing one line would not take that long. Clearly, not thinking right, leaving an unattended stroller but the pool. If it were anyone else, the kids would have been taken away untill the blood tests were done. Make an example of of these two!

Disgusting they should be held accountable for child neglect!! The only reason this woman had those kids was so she can collect from the ugly dude when they get a divorce.

They are losers posers and fakes

Yeah Jim right, you ripped your muscles (obviously well hidden) from behind a cloak then ran, dived into the water and brought both kids out one on each arm - NOT!! So, tell me again, just how did your kids end up in the pool in their stroller or don't you react until you hear the screams hm?! Ungrateful dumbass!!
DCFS looking into this case would be as useful as looking into Octomum - they always get away with it when their faces are known!!

As someone who has had the displeasure of working with them both, they are phony and gross, and owe me and several other people a lot of money. He is a self-absorbed classless pig who is proud of his transvestite trophy wife. She is only with him for his money, which isn't nearly as much as they'd like everyone to believe. They never watch their own kids, so I'm sure this unfortunate accident is because they forgot they had kids. She will leave him some day for someone else.

Glad the kids are OK. I have no doubt they are good parents. Accidents happen. I don't care WHO you are, good parent or bad, stuff happens. Anyone who disagrees doesn't have kids (and therefore don't have any clue what they're talking about anyway).

These two are total trash. They think because they have money and I'm not sure they really do, that they are the perfect people.
What a joke.

Biggest D-Bag couple on that show. This was the OG Real Housewives, and actually used to be watchable. But when the good housewives started leaving the show, and were replaced by people like them, ewww! No Bueno!

It is sad that the dumb ones are so fertile and can have kids and so many good couples are trying hard to have their own!

She is a loser, who got a lot of plastic surgery and is a whore. He is a broke geek, who is all about flash. In "Orange County" they are posers. The IRS should check them out.

What winners. And they are absolutely the most psycho duo. He's like an OJ with control over a woman he knows is only with him for his money, and she tries to pretend how Christian she is and what a perfect marriage they have. He won't let her leave his sight for a day because she's such a prize.
