'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.

Christian parenting at work? Don't think so. They are both so creepy. Ruined last season of RHWOOC. If anything HE needs to have some surgery instead of her. Heard she had the babies by surrogate so prob no maternal instinct anyway.

What, no nanny? What a surprise!

They were probably drunk and checking themselves out of the mirror. Also, they should have known how to lock the stroller so it wouldn't go strolling to a pool. They need to take parenting classes.

What the hell were they doing??? They should be ashamed of themselves. Has any legal action taken place because that child endangerment. This should not be taken lightly. They are damn lucky nothing happend to their children.

Could be, being accustomed to a nanny, you forget the times when the nanny is not around. Unfortunately, it's kinda like leaving a child in the car all day, while the wife/husband works, because, they don't normally drop the child off at the babysitter's and they just plain ...forget, with tragic results.

This is the most sickening couple on earth! On the show, they portray themselves as an EXTREMELY religious couple who live every second of their lives by "The Book" and brag about "protecting" one another from the temptations of sin (oh, I would imagine sins such as three-somes, allowing other to fondle her bodacious ta-ta's,etc) It's always been a mystery to me how such an insanely religious couple can be so pornographic-looking? ...and which "scripture" are they reading from that makes it "okay" to take the kids along to a CLUB on the 4th of July??? What ever happened to the traditional picnic and fireworks...for the KIDS????? They are scammers!

Dumb, selfish bitch has TWO freakin' nannie's and has since they were born. She wouldn't have a clue how to take care of children.

She doesn't even dress or feed them and as soon as he hears one of them cry, he bolts out of the room.
These are 2 horrible, horrible parents.

I don't think it is a pimp/whore relationship, I think it is a dom/sub relationship.

Just because they weren't conscientious doesn't mean that they didn't take in any water! Water sitting in the lungs can cause secondary drowning, all it takes is a table spoon of water in the lungs to kill a child, and shame on them for not taking their children to be looked at after their reckless behavior!

He s a control freak and ugly so why is she so jealous........Maybe it is because she is afraid of losing all that money and way of life and he could care less about his kids and if it wasn't for the nannies these kids would really be neglected. If she was to gain weight and no botox I bet he would leave her in a heartbeat! They sure don't act like christians on the show so it makes you wonder how they really are when the cameras aren't rolling! What losers. At least the other housewives pretty much are themselves when they are on.
