Lisa Hochstein sues woman over news story comment

Lisa Hochstein on 'Real Housewives of Miami' season 2

Lisa Hochstein is done with the drama from Real Housewives of Miami — well, at least until season 3 begins filming (if it returns, that is) — but unfortunately, she’s involved in some legal drama after suing a women who claimed that she was not only an escort, but also a soft core porn star.

According to a report by TMZ, “[Lisa] filed a lawsuit against a woman named Jessica Lederman — claiming she suffered “severe emotional distress” after Jessica blasted her in the comment section of an entertainment news website.”

Apparently, Jessica had left a not-so-nice comment about Lisa on a celebrity news site which had annouced that Lisa was joining the show. “Lisa was an escort who also did soft porn in Vegas,” it read. Not only is Lisa angered by what she calls the “bold-faced lie,” she is also claiming that Jessica’s comment has damaged her reputation and threatened both her employment and even her social life.

In turn, Lisa is suing for more than $15,000, which in the grand scheme of things doesn’t seem like all that much. Clearly, she doesn’t need the money so the suit seems to be more of her teaching the woman a lesson than anything. Typically when celebrities sue and claim that something cost them money, it’s in the millions — not the thousands.

This isn’t the first time a Real Housewives of Miami star has been accused of being an escort. Lisa’s co-star Joanna Krupa dealt with the same charges just a few months ago which were only fueled by the surfacing of her tickle fetish video.

UPDATE: It turns out that Lisa actually knew the woman in real life!

Do you think Lisa should be suing Jessica for her accusations? Sound off in the comments! (At your own risk, of course).
