What Was Lenny Hochstein’s Hot Mic Moment on Real Housewives of Miami Season 5?Sometimes gems are served up to producers on a silver platter, while other times, they have to do a little digging to discover a diamond in the rough. That was the case with Lenny Hochstein’s hot mic moment during season 5 of the Real Housewives of Miami. This is why veteran Housewives producer, Lauren Kaylor, was surprised when she uncovered Lenny’s rant. “You just never know what’s there, and you don’t always know what’s happening at these parties until you get back into the edit bay, and you can really dissect and get into it,” Kathleen French, the Senior Vice President of Production told Page Six Monday at the 2023 Realscreen Summit in Austin, Tx. French reveals that it took Kaylor “hours and hours and hours” to track down Lenny’s whispered mic moment. As RHOM fans know, during the hot mic moment, Lenny revealed his plans to leave his wife, Lisa Hochstein, for his girlfriend, Katharina Mazepa. “One day, [Kaylor] was having a sandwich, and she said, ‘I want to know what Lenny was doing during the party.’ … She was listening to his audio the whole time, and she was the one who found the hot mic moment juxtaposed with Lisa outside talking about how wonderful the marriage is,” French explained. She continued, “There’s a certain style of producer. And I call them ‘part ferret’ because they just get in there and they listen. They’re looking for things, and they just have an intuitive sense of what’s happened. It’s really what makes ‘Housewives’ ‘Housewives.’”
