'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.

This is the dumbist thing a parent could do!!! 2 small kids in a stroller near a pool and you both leave????? They are very fortunate that this didn't end as a tragedy. What was soooo important that they left their kid alone???? I hope they have learned their lesson and grow up....

#56 As someone who is currently raising kids, I have to say WTF?! It is your job to know where your kids are when they're toddlers - you don't put them near roads where they can run in front of cars, you don't strap them in a stroller they can't get out of near a pool and wait for them to fall in, you don't not have a child gate so your kids can't get into the kitchen for chemicals, hot ovens or knives - it's common bloody sense!! Accidents happen true, but if you're doing your job they're small ones - NOT ALMOST DROWNING YOUR KIDS!!

Shrinking Violet, too funny!!!

and I agree with everyone who said that if this dude wasn't packing a full wallet, she wouldn't spit on him.

And tell this guy to stop dressing like Jon Gosselin.

I've watched this show from the beginning. These two since they joined the show are so self involved. I feel sooooooooo sorry for their children. I'm 51 and take care of a 4 yr old. They take ALL your time. Guess what I don't have time/money for nannies it's all me. If your gonna have kids, umm guess what man up and take care of them. Trust me...YOUR NOT THAT GOOD LOOKING!!! Umm my dead dog looks better!!!!

Long time member of the BBC. How does your stroller end up in the "member pool"..... Oh... I guess you were at the bar and not paying attention.

Glad the kids are okay, certainly wish nothing on them. Too bad it wasn't their parents strapped into the stroller and taking a bath in the pool. Couldn't happen to a couple of nicer self-centered idiots.

Jim,
Your lack of gratitude makes you as ugly on the inside as you are on the outside.

I agree Lisa she was probably cursing every woman out at the pool for saying hello to her husband. No excuse, two parents around and 2 kids in a stroller falling in a pool?
