RHOM star Lisa Hochstein wants her estranged hubby Lenny Hochstein to pay up BIG TIME in the alimony department.
According to Lisa, her $570k RHOM salary is “woefully insufficient” to raise her and Lenny’s two children, which is why she wants the Miami-based plastic surgeon to pay alimony.
The Bravoleb filed court documents stating that her “part-time” employment at Peacock is not enough to provide her and her children, Logan, 7, and Elle, 3, with the lifestyle that they have become accustomed to, per Page Six.
“She has primarily been a homemaker and mother throughout the parties’ marriage,” the filing states.
“[Lenny] has significant and substantial assets and earns millions of dollars a year as [a] successful plastic surgeon,” the documents continue, noting that “without [Lenny’s] contribution, [Lisa] cannot provide the needs and necessities of life as they were established during the marriage.”
In addition, Lisa also wants Lenny to continue paying for her health insurance, including dental. She also wants Lenny to pick up the tab for “non-covered medical, dental, and eye care.”
Lisa is requesting that the court grant her temporary alimony and force Lenny to cover her and her children’s health insurance.
She also has asked for “the alimony and temporary child support to be paid [retroactively] to the date of filing.”
To date, Lisa has remained living in her and Lenny’s marital home despite the fact that her prenup called for her to vacate the property within 30 days of Lenny’s divorce filing. Lisa is requesting that the judge grant her “exclusive use and occupancy” of the home.
“[Lenny] has the means to and has already established an alternate, luxurious residence,” the court documents state.
A hearing is set to take place on April 19.
“I pay for everything currently. I even paid for her recent vacation to Colorado with the kids, but instead of a ‘thank you,’ which I never expected, I get claims that I do not pay for child support or health insurance? Simply not true,” Lenny tells Page Six. “Obviously, her new lawyers, just like her old lawyer, seems to think that disparaging me is a good strategy. Nothing surprises me anymore.”
However, Lisa denies Lenny’s claim that he paid for her trip to Aspen with her boyfriend, Jody Glidden.
“My top priority remains my children. To be clear, Lenny didn’t pay for any of my travel. My boyfriend took me on vacation and even spent money for my children’s travel and expenses as Lenny fought paying his share,” Lisa states.
RHOM is expected to return for season 6 in 2024.
Lisa Hochstein wants her estranged husband, Lenny Hochstein, to pay alimony because she believes her salary from the reality show “Real Housewives of Miami” is insufficient to support herself and their two children. She argues that Lenny, a successful plastic surgeon earning millions of dollars annually, should contribute to maintaining the lifestyle they had during their marriage.
In addition to alimony, Lisa is requesting that Lenny continue paying for her health insurance, including dental coverage. She also wants him to cover expenses related to non-covered medical, dental, and eye care for herself and their children.
Despite the prenuptial agreement stating that Lisa should vacate the marital home within 30 days of Lenny filing for divorce, she has remained living there. Lisa is requesting exclusive use and occupancy of the home, arguing that Lenny has the means to establish an alternate luxurious residence.
