She wants him to Hoch over the money.
Lisa Hochstein claims her “Real Housewives of Miami” salary is “woefully insufficient” to care for her and estranged husband Lenny Hochstein’s two children, so now she wants the plastic surgeon to pay alimony.
The reality star filed new court documents in which she says her “part-time” employment on the Peacock series is not enough to pay for her and her kids’ lifestyles.
“She has primarily been a homemaker and mother throughout the parties’ marriage,” the filing, obtained by Page Six, states.
“[Lenny] has significant and substantial assets and earns millions of dollars a year as [a] successful plastic surgeon,” the documents continue, adding that “without [Lenny’s] contribution, [Lisa] cannot provide the needs and necessities of life as they were established during the marriage.”
Lenny, 56, revealed in court documents filed in October 2022 that Lisa, 40, was earning $30,000 per episode of “RHOM.”
In addition to her “need of temporary alimony,” Lisa is also requesting Lenny continue to pay for her medical and dental insurance, as well as “non-covered medical, dental and eye care” for her.
The Bravolebrity also wants to be awarded the temporary child support that she has been seeking as well as have Lenny pay for the kids’ health insurance.

Lisa wants the alimony and temporary child support to be paid retroactive to the date of filing.
Although the estranged couple’s prenuptial agreement called for Lisa to vacate their marital home, she has remained in residence and has once again asked to be given “exclusive use and occupancy” for herself, son Logan, 7, and daughter Elle, 3.
“[Lenny] has the means to and has already established an alternate, luxurious residence,” the documents state.
There is a hearing scheduled for April 19 to rule on the aforementioned requests.
“I pay for everything currently. I even paid for her recent vacation to Colorado with the kids, but instead of a ‘thank you,’ which I never expected, I get claims that I do not pay for child support or health insurance? Simply not true,” Lenny tells Page Six in response to Lisa’s filing.
“Obviously her new lawyers, just like her old lawyer, seems to think that disparaging me is a good strategy. Nothing surprises me anymore.”
Lisa, however, disputes Lenny’s claims that he paid for her trip to Aspen, saying her boyfriend, Jody Glidden, financed the trip.
“My top priority remains my children. To be clear, Lenny didn’t pay for any of my travel. My boyfriend took me on vacation and even spent money for my children’s travel and expenses as Lenny fought paying his share,” Lisa says.
