Lisa Hochstein is one of the newest faces on Real Housewives of Miami this season. The 30 year old Canada native is not very well known, but her personality and charm has surprised many viewers given her “plastic” appearance. Lisa is opening up about her infertility issues, the minimal plastic surgery she has had, and what life is like in Miami society.
Not an uncommon storyline in the Housewives franchise, Lisa’s infertility is something that was topic of discussion on a recent episode of RHOM. Lisa revealed that she has suffered miscarriages and is struggling with her husband Lenny to get pregnant. Lisa tells SheKnows that she and her plastic surgeon husband have not given up but would consider adoption if pregnancy did not work out for them. “People have asked us about adoption. I believe in adoption, but I feel like my husband and I should be able to have our own biological child. We’re still doing everything we can, so I’m going to keep trying that route. But yeah, if we tried absolutely everything we could, I would definitely consider adoption. I’m healthy, my husband’s healthy, so there shouldn’t be any reason that we shouldn’t be able to have our own biological child,” says Lisa.
One of the first things noticeable on Lisa is her looks and what has been surgically enhanced – or added – and what has not. Lisa is very candid about what she has had done and surprisingly has only had a couple of surgical procedures done. Lisa says of her plastic surgery, “I’m very open about what I have and have not had done. I’ve had breast augmentation. I had a boob job when I was 19. And it wasn’t the best job. When I met my husband, I always wanted to fix it. And since he’s known as “The Boob God,” I thought if I’m walking around with him, my breasts should really look great. Otherwise people would think he did this not-so-great job. I finally convinced him to re-do my breasts. It was against his wishes, because he doesn’t like to do unnecessary surgery. He’s very conservative about that. I had to really convince him. I’m not his creation, like he created me from head to toe. I think people misunderstand that. I’m glad you asked me that, because I want to make it clear that my breasts are all he’s ever done on me. I have had rhinoplasty, because I had just a little tiny hump on my nose.”
Lisa may seem like she has a huge circle of friends, but she says she only has a few close people she calls her friends. Lisa says Miami is a difficult place to build true friendships, but she has gotten lucky a few times. “It’s really difficult for me to find real friendships in Miami. I have found a couple and these two people have been amazing. My one girlfriend grew up in Ohio. Her name is Carrie, she’s my best friend — she has three girls. You’ll see her on the show later. She doesn’t get mixed up in all the South Beach craziness and so we ground each other. We have a lot of the same values. We always discuss the things you and I are discussing about Miami society and the pressures to look a certain way. I’m very lucky to have found her,” says Lisa.
I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by Lisa myself. When I saw pictures of her I thought “stuck up bimbo” but she is actually one of my favorites if not my favorite Miami Housewife now! To read the entire, lengthy interview with Lisa visit SheKnows.
