Does anyone else miss the Real Housewives of Miami? It has been six years since the show last aired. Three seasons just wasn’t enough of the Miami ladies. The show had a different flair than the other Housewife shows, with some interesting cast members, including the always irrepressible Lea Black. Fan favorite, the late, great Mama Elsa added no-nonsense wisdom in her own unique way. Out of all the past Bravo shows, I think this is the one I miss the most.
Lisa Hochstein, a former Playboy model, was a cast member for the last two seasons of RHOM. She might best be remembered for her love of expensive designer handbags. And her love for her adoring plastic surgeon husband Lenny Hochstein, frequent provider of the aforementioned handbags. Lisa opened up about her fertility struggles on the show and in 2015, she and Lenny had a son Logan via surrogate. Proud mom Lisa’s social media is filled with photos of Logan, who is four. And now, Lisa and Lenny have an exciting family update.
In a recent Instagram post, Lisa announced that she and Lenny have a new addition to their family. She shared, “We are beyond excited and overjoyed to finally be home with the newest member of the Hochstein family. Elle Marie Hochstein was born Monday, September 16 via surrogate. She is an absolute angel baby and we are overflowing with joy.” The accompanying photo is of Lisa and Lenny gazing down at their new baby in the hospital.
Congratulations to the Hochsteins! I have a feeling that Elle Marie is going to have a closet full of mini Hermes, Gucci and Prada handbags and accessories by the time she starts pre-school!
After the birth of Logan, Lisa told Bravo’s The Daily Dish in 2016, “I feel like my life has much more purpose and meaning. I’m more focused, and strive to be better at everything every day for him. Things that mattered before seem so silly now. He’s such a happy and pleasant baby. He was worth the wait.”
Lisa went on to explain how much she had changed since becoming a mother, stating, “I’m much more calm, better organized, for starters. I’m much more carefree and relaxed when it comes to my appearance or anything to do with me. It’s refreshing how motherhood changes someone. It’s all about Logan now. I’m a better person all around.”
Happily, Lisa is not the only RHOM star with exciting baby news. Joanna Krupa, a cast member on seasons 2 and 3 of the show, recently announced that she is expecting a baby girl with husband Douglas Nunes. She shared her news in an Instagram post, with she and Douglas posing with their dogs, who are wearing cute signs announcing their “baby sister.” Joanna first revealed her pregnancy in an earlier Instagram post back in May.
