See Photos of Lisa Hochstein and Her Mother From Her Childhood in Canada

The Real Housewives of Miami cast member grew up with her mom (who appeared in Season 6) and dad in Toronto.

On The Real Housewives of Miami, Lisa Hochstein is never afraid to share her truth. Most recently, the mom of two has remained open about her tumultuous split from husband Lenny Hochstein following his affair. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Miami on Peacock and the Bravo App.

At the Season 6 reunion, for instance, when host Andy Cohen asked how it was going, Lisa said, "Oh, it's gotten significantly worse." 

"He's suing me for forks and knives and pillows and art — art that is mine, by the way," she explained. "He just has it out for me."

She also revealed that, as a result of their marital settlement agreement, she is required to live "in proximity" of the home she once shared with Lenny, a provision enacted for the sake of their children, Logan and Elle. But, the places she had been looking at in South Miami proved not close enough to her prior home in Star Island and so her boyfriend, Jody Glidden, ultimately offered to "pitch in" for a $32,000 per-month rental.

She plans to remain in the rental until the house Lenny is building for her as part of their agreement is finished, which could take "two to three years." The deed for the home will in their children's names — but she will not allowed to live in it with any new husband, including (potentially) Jody.

It's a lot for the blonde beauty, but at least she has many happy memories to look back on.

Long before the Real Housewives were a twinkle in anyone's eye, Lisa was just an adorable little girl in Canada, aspiring to become a model and an actress. Take a trip down memory lane with Lisa with some very personal photos from her past she's shared of her early years.

"You never liked the way he treated me," Lisa said to her mom, who responded, "No."

"He never engages with any of my family," Lisa said. 

"If I'm talking to him, he would just walk away," Jean continued. "So, guess what? I text[ed] him. I text[ed] him and [told] him how I feel. He never replied to my text. He never [sat] still to listen to me."
