Real Housewives of Miami star Lisa Hochstein tells Page Six that she was “blindsided” by her husband Lenny Hochstein’s decision to divorce her after twelve years of marriage.
“With two young children involved, as a mom, I’m going to focus all of my energy and time on them,” Lisa said in a statement via her rep.
“I’m blindsided by his behavior and reckless handling of the situation,” she added.
The couple shares two children: Logan, 6, and daughter Elle, 2.
Lenny announced he was divorcing Lisa in a statement to Page Six on Monday after he was caught on video getting handsy with his new model girlfriend, Katharina Mazepa.
“Lisa and I are getting divorced,” he revealed on Monday. “A few weeks ago, I denied this because I am trying my best to protect my family during this process. This is a very difficult time, and I would ask for some privacy so that we can best take care of our children who mean the world to us.”
The plastic surgeon denied rumors his new girlfriend played a part in his divorce from Lisa, saying, “none of this happened until after the decision was made to get divorced.”
He has yet to file for divorce.
Meanwhile, one of Lisa’s friends tells Page Six, “She’s devastated and disgusted that he would do this to his children. The way he’s out flaunting it is gross.”
Season 4 of RHOM is currently streaming on NBC’s Peacock app.
