Lenny Hochstein’s Mother SHADES His Wife Lisa While Celebrating His Engagement
Lenny Hochstein’s mother, Marina Hochstein, has sparked backlash from Real Housewives of Miami fans after making a disrespectful comment aimed at her daughter-in-law following her son’s engagement announcement.
After Lenny Hochstein’s mistress, Katharina Mazepa, announced their engagement on Instagram Saturday night — congratulatory messages and well-wishes poured in from friends, fans, and loved ones. Among those showering the couple with love was none other than Lenny’s mother, Marina.
Marina expressed her happiness for her son and the exciting new chapter he’s embarking upon. She highlighted her joy for Lenny’s newfound love by sarcastically remarking, “I will be very happy that this time you are getting a woman who love and respect you.” She added, “You certainly did not have that in your previous marriage. Good luck congratulations ❤️”
Marina’s shady comment refers to her son’s current marriage to Lisa Hochstein — suggesting Katharina’s love and respect will bring a new level of happiness to his life. As fans know, Lenny and Lisa are embroiled in a bitter divorce battle.
The plastic surgeon has made shocking claims against his estranged wife. According to legal documents, Lenny accused Lisa of disapproving of his plans to take their children on a ski trip to Aspen, alongside his girlfriend, Katharina Mazepa. He alleged that Lisa openly badmouthed him in front of their two kids, leaving them confused and “sad.”
Lisa fired back, insisting that Lenny Hochstein has a “false perception of reality,” regarding their home situation. The heated feud between the former couple is leaving their two children caught in the middle.
Following the revelation of Lenny’s desire for a divorce, Lisa received unwavering support from her fellow Real Housewives of Miami ladies, including Larsa Pippen. During the initial stages, Lenny’s mother, also stood by Lisa’s side, as their closeness was showcased on the show. However, as time went on, dynamics shifted, and the situation took an unexpected turn.
During the December 12 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen — Lisa opened up about the current state of her relationship with her mother-in-law. “She definitely was on my side in the beginning,” she explained. “Today, you know, it’s her only son, so she’s more on his side, and it’s expected.”
Marina’s heartfelt message didn’t receive the warm reception she might have hoped for, as many onlookers expressed their concerns, calling out the grandmother for endorsing her son’s engagement while he is still legally married.
One person wrote, “what a horrid thing to say , that woman you are talking about is the mother to your grand children , you are talking about respect … your son hasn’t shown any respect throughout all of this, you are all the same !!!!!!!”
Someone else assumed, “he probably threatened to cut her off.” While another stated, “It’s unfortunate that Marina couldn’t find a more tactful way to express her well-wishes for Lenny. This just adds more tension to an already messy situation.”
A fan commented, “Marina should have kept her opinions to herself. Not a good look for her or the family.”
One critic shared, “I can’t believe Marina would say something like this publicly. It’s hurtful and disrespectful.”
An onlooker responded, “Marina should focus on supporting her son during this difficult time, rather than stirring up more drama.”
Another person stated, “This comment is just unnecessary and hurtful. It’s time for everyone to move on and let the couple handle their own issues.”
After a 12-year marriage, Lenny and Lisa made the difficult decision to part ways during Season 5. The shocking news emerged when Lenny faced accusations of infidelity during their marriage. While the RHOM star insists she never saw the split coming, there were clear signs, especially when Lenny’s behavior turned cold and callous.
