Lisa Hochstein says she was “blindsided” by husband Lenny Hochstein’s decision to divorce her after 12 years of marriage.
“With two young children involved, as a mom I’m going to focus all of my energy and time on them,” the “Real Housewives of Miami” star said in an exclusive statement to Page Six via her spokesperson Monday.
“I’m blindsided by his behavior and reckless handling of the situation,” she added.
As we told you earlier today, Lenny confirmed Monday morning, the pair who share son, Logan, 6 and daughter, Elle, 2 are over.
“Lisa and I are getting divorced,” he told the outlet via phone. “A few weeks ago, I denied this because because I am trying my best to protect my family during this process. This is a very difficult time, and I would ask for some privacy so that we can best take care of our children who mean the world to us.”
Lenny, 55, also confirmed he is dating Austrian model Katharina Mazepa but claimed “none of this happened until after the decision was made to get divorced.”
He then went on to admit that he hasn’t actually filed for divorce from Lisa he did tell PageSix, they’ve “contemplated divorce for the last several years.”
“I tried my best to avoid it for the sake of our children, who we love deeply. We have been living separate lives for months and made the decision to divorce last month,” he continued. “It was after the decision was made that I started seeing Katharina. This is something that Lisa was well aware of before it happened. Our issues have nothing to do with the filming of the show.”
We have a feeling this is going to get messy!
