Lisa Hochstein doesn’t “blame” Katharina Mazepa for her split from estranged husband Lenny Hochstein. Instead, she believes the plastic surgeon was lying to both of them.
During a new interview, which comes amid her first post-split outing in Miami, the Real Housewives of Miami star slammed Lenny’s lies while suggesting his new girlfriend, who recently denied being the reason for their breakup, is using him to “get ahead.”
“Since finding out just two weeks ago, my priority remains the same – our children. As a mother, their happiness, safety, and protection from all of this remain my ultimate priority,” Lisa told Page Six of Logan, 6, and Elle, 2, on May 19. “Unfortunately, this is a case of a man lying to two women at the same time.”
“I don’t blame [Katharina] for what’s happening, we all choose different paths to get ahead in life,” Lisa continued.
And while Lenny has insisted that Lisa could not have been surprised by his divorce announcement because they were “sleeping in separate bedrooms,” she insisted that she did not see it coming.
“I feel blindsided by a man I’ve dedicated my life to,” she stated.
Meanwhile, Katharina has also said Lisa and Lenny had been separated “for a while,” insisting the RHOM stars were broken up before they became an item and claiming she would never go “for a man who is happily married.”
“I was informed Lisa was fully aware that he was going out with me,” Katharina explained. “In fact, he is going to great lengths to protect his family and do right by everyone involved in this difficult process.”
As RHOM fans may recall, rumors of Lisa and Lenny’s potential split first began swirling earlier this month after she and Katharina were allegedly involved in a “showdown” at a Gala nightclub in Miami. And, while Lenny initially denied the reports, he ultimately confirmed his plans to divorce Lisa and stepped out with Katharina at Prime 112.
“Lisa and I are getting divorced,” he said on Monday. “A few weeks ago, I denied this because I am trying my best to protect my family during this process.”
Amid her messy split from Lenny, Lisa was seen out in Miami with a male friend as she filmed for season five and enjoyed a lunch date with co-star Adriana De Moura.
In photos shared by the Daily Mail, Lisa walked alongside the mystery man in a purple Gucci outfit with a matching Chanel purse.
