Lisa Hochstein

Lisa was embarrassed by all the craziness that went on during her chairty event.

on Oct 26, 20120

My much anticipated lingerie party to benefit Susan G. Komen is finally here. Our philosophy is that if you are going to have a party, party with a purpose. This is one of the foundations we work with to raise awareness and funds. I liked the idea of having a lingerie party in conjunction with breast cancer awareness. It will definitely create a buzz and draw attention to this cause. Of course I need to look fabulous at my event, so my "hired friend" and fashion consultant Daysy has come to my rescue. Doesn't everyone model sexy lingerie for their housekeeper? I passed on the angel look, because I didn't have the horns to hold my halo up.

I had to call Lea because she had not RSVPed at that point, and I really wanted her to come. I was incredibly surprised (in a good way) when she actually showed up, and I appreciated her donation to the cause.

At Lea's office Adriana brings up Karent's article in the paper labeling some of the ladies classless fame addicts with Botox for brains, saying how she wants to show women have class and beauty in Miami like her. I agree with Lea here in that if the shoe doesn't fit, I'm not wearing it. I also agree with Joanna in that journalists sometimes tend to misquote or misconstrue your words. I for one do not believe everything I read and only half of what I hear.

At Alexia’s house, she and Marysol discuss Karent not knowing her place and that she is attempting to elevate herself to a place she's not in. I believe we all are on this show and this world to elevate ourselves to the next level. That's part of what life is about.  I would hate to think that I would ever become so complacent that I would stop trying to improve myself. And what is her place? To sit on the sidelines looking into a life and position she deserves to be in? No one person is better than the next.

Why was a small portion of Lisa's decolletage blurred out in the bras and brawls episode? The blur was way too high for it to be a part of her breast. It's been bugging me since I saw the episode. Can someone please explain to me--why the blur?!?!?

Lisa I think you need to have security at your parties from now on.  Also, I think you need to speak to your two best friends.  Karent didn't need to ask if JF slept with both girls...he just said he dated them and it would have all been dropped and forgotten if Karent hadn't have taken it further and then drug him over to Joanna who was ready for a fight.  Joanna was out of control all night insulting anyone in her way.  Karent also brought that awful guy who wanted to pick a fight with Lea...  he had a chip on his shoulder from the get go.  If I were you, before I had a party or event again, I would speak to them again and give my two besties a what for before inviting them again.  They didn't have any consideration or concern for you at all that evening!  They are supposed to be your friends and have your back.

Money can't buy you class....so true.  Were we supposed to be thrilled at a bunch of plastic freaks in their lingerie?  And then we were treated to a drunken brawl that would have shamed skid row.  Girl, you really need a new group of friends....and some advice from an upscale party planner.  What is really sad, is that none of these women are interesting....except possibly Ana.  Almost every episode is just so seedy.  ugh

In the beginning,  I thought that because you married an older rich man, and had lots of plastic surgery done, and didn't work,  that you would be superficial.  I find that you are the most sane, most real, most fun housewife in Miami!!   I applaud your efforts to raise money for any charity, and by having a party at your own house you are actually putting yourself on the line!!!

      Lea should have NEVER brought such lowlifes to your party, and YOU however should have asked Lea to ask Joe to leave, and then the other two men who fought by the pool should have been THROWN out immediately by security.   Maybe you are alittle afraid of Lea after all????  Next year have better security.

Forget about Lea...she is trouble.  If you raised money for Breast Cancer then kudos on a job well done.  Keep having fun and doing good things.

 

PS I think the broom belongs to Adriana haha!

Why did you hire security guards for your event if they did nothing after the altercation at the pool, or the fist fighting in your home?  I mean what was the point or were they just there for display?  On a side note, when the season first started, I thought you would be the first one to get on my nerves but you are actually nicer than most of these women and 10 times classier than I thought Joanna would be.  Also, you should lighten your digs on Lea, she could be a great mentor for your fundraisers.

You are the only one I actually like. I'm glad you're not afraid of Lea. I thought I was the only one who found her so called sense of humor to be offensive/condescending. You looked great at your event so ignore Lea. I didn't care for her outfit at all so like you, I didn't understand what she meant by referring to yours as hilarious. You seem to be fair in your opinions and the way you treat people. I appreciate you for not jumping on the lets hate Karent bandwagon.

I detest when folks talk about $ whether it is the abundance of or the lack of... it is plain tacky.  Is $20,000 a lot to pay for a party like that?  I was underwhelmed when that came out of your mouth.  I guess you saved $ on the venue, but that didn't seem like much $$ for such a lavish event.  If you are going to talk about how much you spend on a party, make sure you can at the very least impress a "poor" girl from WV.  : )

I am still not sure how i feel about you. I don't think it was nice of you to say that lea is 30 years older than you. It's not even true. I am much younger than you are (21) but I'm not calling you an old lady. That was just rude.

Rockerman
Rockerman

you're not THAT young or Lea THAT old that you can play the innocent need to learn card. You bit off more than you can chew a) with a charity event and b) these women. Maybe it was the lingerie, maybe it was the absence of adequate controls (keeping them separated), but throwing everyone together and taking pot shots at your generous neighbor didn't cut it in my book. Your screaming has to go first if you want respect. Corralling the HW in the kitchen was a waste of time for this viewer. How much was raised?

I think  in your future will be many charity events. I feel  your heart is in the right place to bring awareness to women's issues. I think  you have found your calling. You have beauty and brains.....now we all see you also understand what is important in life. It's not money or status. It's about making a change in others life's. You get it!

 

Your husband is a lucky man to have you, you're spunky and so full of life.

 

Next event please hire security.

 

and by the way you were worried you had showed your behind, trying to get all the drama stopped. You did not! You were assertive and a strong woman.

Where was your husband in all this to support you? it is his house as well, right? Does he care?

When people were throwing each other in the pool and slapping one another, he should have been there, helping you and supporting you!!!

 Lisa... you are the only one with some class..(my prior comment below was not intended for you).  Sorry.

I'm with the folks criticizing you for bringing up Lea's age as a dig.  You can be better than that.  If you have the gumption to stand up to her, then do it with class.  You may have a plastic surgeon for a husband, but honey we all get old and he can only do so much before you look like a clown. 

 

Other than that, you are growing on me.  I think you have a real heart!  I'm impressed with your insight into the conflicts and you generlaly land where I would land in the same circumstances. 

 

In the future, have a ZERO TOLERENCE policy for your parties.  Tell security to throw out anyone but you or your husband if there is any physical contact.  It's complete BS that anyone behaved at your event in such a low class way.  And low class obviously has nothing to do with economic class.  You should have throw BOTH Joanna and Adrianna out.

Those types of events take a lot of work and effort.  I get totally stressed if I am having a party for 30 people.  I feel so bad for you. Your party was definately not the time or the place.  I know women who have had breast cancer and your party was for a very good cause.  Even though I am unemployed I felt so bad for your hard efforts to raise awareness and the chaos that ensued that I sent a donation to the foundation.  Thank you for careing.

Hi Everyone, I was so embarassed for Lisa!  Who the H, goes to a party, for charity at that, and causes trouble? She put on a nice party,invite people to her home, I felt so bad for her!

After seeing how Joanna treat Marta, it's probably the best for Marta to be her own woman. It may take her a while, remember she's young, has had bad role models lately,  give her time.

We enjoy you on RH!

Why do you keep pointing out Leahs age? at the club you said somebody shoot me if im 40 and still  going to clubs? tonight you said she's 30 years older than you? what are you 10? she appears to be a woman in her late 50s and you appear to be in your early 40s so what's your problem? when you grow up you want to be like her? um ? I think all that botox has gotten to you and you think you're 20 ? whatever age you are no one cares but don't put woman older than you down cause Marta could say the same about you being so much older !

I just wanted to state that Karent I believe did nothing wrong. Joe Francis was slandering Joanna and Marta and the proper thing to do as a friend would be to let them know this I think it was better for her to bring it to Joanna's attention with joe present rather than do behind Joe's back. Don't let the ladies reel you in to their dirty mess. I like you, Karent and Joanna very much. I used to love Adriana and Alexa but they are being so ugly this season o my goodness. Stay out of the cat fight lol

Lisa glad you had this event, thanks for the support. i think Karent is a trouble maker she is a want to be and did cause all the problems at your party! Joanna looked very guilty and she does have a problem, people in the business do not like it when you think your everything! Joanna should watch it she will get older and her mouth will and temper will take her out of the business. As for Romain i would really reconsider the engagement! You want to be married to someone who only cares about themself! that's not what a marriage should be! Joanna is so into herself she has no room or time for anyone else.

 I wouldn't even think anything about Lea she is really nothing but  goofy. there is no competitions between you two. 

And last Marta I do feel sorry for her she has a sister who thinks she is everything and I would bet that she has been put down by her sister many times.

glad she is living with you maybe she will get her confidence back.

Karant was the one who started everything at the party, she asked Joe if he slept with both of them then ran to Joanna and said he was saying that when he hadnt said anything but he dated both of them, they she confronted other women about what they were wearing, and then the magazine article she put out that was very classless, Joanna is so low class she cant keep her mouth shut and confront people at an appropriate place and time in every scene of her in public she is freaking out, like her sister said she is crazy, she needs medication and I wouldnt blame Roman if he left her, you cant be a business person and have a girlfriend who acts like an animal everywhere she goes. I dont blame Audiana for lashing out she was being chased down when she was trying to leave the situation and if a woman was chaseing me down and grabbed me from behind I would protect myself also, she was being attacked from behind, I would be afraid if that animal was chasing me down too.  I feel bad for Lisa she should not invite Joanna and Karant if she doesnt want drama at her function.

It really appeared as if you loaned your home out for this party as you ONLY hung with the small cast and their guests in a tiny area of the patio and kitchen. NO one listened to you when you were screaming for the music to return.

Your cursing is unbearable, please make an attempt to at least ACT like a lady on occasion. You kept saying this should not happen in your house; look at this house as you cursed.

I find your need for attention very sad.

Lisa, It was your benefit..why did you not have body guards escort Joe Francis(girls gone wild), who I think is the lowest life form other than a snake, Lea & James out the damn door... I would, but then my life was not a celebrity story..........

Really, Johanna....everyone has a cause, I think you use PETA to enhance your career!!! Lea, she is a work of art..she knows how to puch people's button, she reminds me of Kim D of Housewives of NJ

WOW!  The ladies really did act like classless fame addicts!  Seriously Adriana was so upset about what was said about her, and then she turns around and slips that shoe right on her foot! Absolutely no respect for you. I can't imagine how she would react if someone behaved like she did at one of her art shows.  She could have called Karent on the phone, but then she wouldn't have all the attention, which she seems to need badly.  Speaking of attention monger, Karent sure stirred the pot non-stop! How classless to ask Joe if he slept with Joanna, and then tell Joanna in front of Roman. Disgusting behavior!  Now speaking of Joanna, dang girl get over yourself! I admire your opinion on fur, but I highly doubt Marysol thinks about you when she is getting dressed for a party?  And what's with all the temper tantrums?? Grow up!  As far as Lea, don't give her the time of day. Your beyond gorgeous and you really don't need a compliment from her....

I don't know you ladies on the show so I can only judge what I see. And from your own words, it seems like you want Lea's approval and simultaneously you throw shade at her. Lea doesn't say anything bad about you, is cordial but she just doesn't want to be your friend. I like her because, like me, she does NOT give a f-. It's all hilarious in her book.

 

I respect Lea also because she did NOT jump on the anti-Karent train or throw serious shade in any direction. Even at the party, she tried to put Joe Francis in his place. I think she was being genuine in showing up to your event. I think the weird vibes you seem to be getting may be in your head (no offense!).

 

I feel bad that all that happened at your house. Joe Francis was a douche and you were too nice letting that guy stick around after he threw some serious shade on the Krupa sisters. I would have found a nice way to tell him to shut up or leave.

Hi Lisa, You threw a wonderful party and I am not sure why Lea decided to bring JF except to cause trouble. It's a shame about the things that happened at the party. I felt you should have had a little more patience with your husband. That being said, I think Lea is very jealous or is threatened by you. You are much younger, more beautiful and living where she wanted to live. So I think you need to watch your back around her.

Lisa Episode 1, I thought for sure I wouldn't like you (judgmental yes) but I was 100% wrong. Lea is sooo jealous of you and feels threatened. It's more than obvious. I'm on the fence about Karent. Before this episode I liked her, now I think that she needs a little social training, but has good intentions. Keep doing what you do. Be super fabulous around Lea at all times, it will make her more jealous. ;)

Lea set you up by bringing Joe Francis.  She wanted to ruin your party and was successful.

I think you are the cutest little thing and a real cool chick (I hope it stays that way).  Now if I were you I would not allow that low class Dentist back into your home.  Twice within the first  hour of you lingerie party she caused chaos that could have cause lots of damage to your beautiful home.  She could have started an all out No Holds Barred Brawl at you Breast Cancer function. How disrespectfull and classless. She needs to apologize to you and I think she owes Joanna an apology because she did not treat Joanna like a friend that night.  She asked Joe if he slept with the girls, noone els did Karent asked, and then grabs Joe and brings him to Joanna to drop this bomb in front of Romain and your guests. Who does that?? She needs to apologize to Romaine for disrespecting him and not considering him, Joe Francais for throwing him under the bus, when I actually feel he real did nothing wrong, she brought up the subject. And I can't forget Marisol. I wonder if she even said Hello to her first before she "Warned" her about the fur.  It didn't even look like a fur jacket, was it?? Karent needs to just stop, please stop trying so hard.  I get exhausted watching her try so hard.  Go worry about your man's infidelity\ies, that she give you more then enough to handle that you will not have time for anything else. Karent causes chaos to others so noone can really look at her screwed up issues.

Lisa,

 You are authenticaly good and kind. You did not deserve to have your fundrasier ruined by Lea. Stay far away from her as you possibly can. She is extremely jealous of you because one day your events with surpass her's. And make sure that happens.

 

@seasonedviewer7
@seasonedviewer7

Karent is so onto how each of you feel about her. She finds ways to 'dig."  Maybe if you all extended an olive branch she wouldn't feel like "fighting" back.  She may smile  lot but there is a fox jus waiting to attack.

Lea is Lea. She has a hurtful and biting sense of humor. She could care less about any charity functions she is not involved in.

The truth is all of you have stick up there and judge anyone not in your um class as they say.

Hi Lisa,

 

You really seem to be a down to Earth lady. You and I would get along. Anyways, I loved the fact you did your party in honor of the Susan G. Komen foundation. And a lingerie theme fit perfectly! I am a breast cancer survivor, almost 2 years since my double mastectomy. My reconstructive surgery made me so nervous. I didn't want to look like a scarred mess. Mine ended up looking great. I'm one of the lucky ones. I have talked to other survivors that have not have the same end product unfortunatley. They either decided not to do anything or stop the reconstructive process before it was complete. If your truly serious, maybe you could talk your husband into fixing some "mistakes" other doctors have made or finishing the process on others? It's a very difficult time and a lot of depression sets in. Having beautiful breast can really change how a women feels after having such a life changing illness. Good luck to you and I hope you and your husband get pregnant soon, I bet you would be a great mom!

Hi Lisa,

 

I love watching your show - and I think you do a fabulous job!  Question for you:  I am scheduled for a breast augmentation in two weeks.  I think your breasts look great!  I am wondering what size you went with?  Any advice?

 

Thanks in advance for your response!  And keep up the good work!!

  I agree with you Beverlyhillsbarbie.  Lea knew exactly what she was doing!  Trying to put all the "young pretty girls" in their place...The place she thinks they belong, that is.  Lea your claws are truly showing and you fool no one!   I truly believe it was your goal to cause problems at  Lisa's party.  It's also obvious you don't think Joanna deserves Romain, you set her up by bringing the uncouth idiot Joe has-been.  Your so transparant, you make it painfully obvious how you really feel about these girls, with your body language and facial exspressions, and the stunts you pull.  Your a mean girl Lea Black!
