Lisa Hochstein is taking to her Bravo Blog to reveal she had a blast visiting Texas with Lea Black in this week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Miami. Lisa says she adored Lea’s family and that they welcomed her with open arms. Lisa also talks about how surprised she was to learn of Lea’s sister that had passed away.
Lisa writes, “I had no idea that I would fall in love with Texas, but I did. The people in Texas and their southern hospitality truly remind me of my hometown Toronto, Canada. I’ve always connected to people from the south for this reason. Almost everyone I meet from the Midwest is down-to-earth, polite, humble, and kind.
My husband Dr. Leonard Hochstein lived in Texas after beginning his medical career when he applied to medical school as a merit scholar high school senior. He was able to surpass the customary four years of college and go directly from high school into medical school. He attended the accelerated program at the Louisiana State University Medical Center where he graduated as Valedictorian of his class. He received his M.D. in 1990.
He continued his training in General and Trauma Surgery at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas from 1990 to 1995.
My relationship with Lea has really grown this season. I was flattered that Lea trusted me enough (even though she puts up walls occasionally) to go to Texas with her to meet her wonderful family. They welcomed me with open arms and treated me like family. I felt right at home. They are beautiful people inside and out. I see where Lea gets her big heart from. I was also deeply saddened to discover that she had lost a sister not too long ago. My heart goes out to them. I know their sister is watching over Lea and her family.
I was thrilled to learn about Lea’s accomplishments. She is a self-made woman who has worked hard her entire life. She has motivated and touched so many around her. Meeting with her girlfriends in Texas was such beautiful, positive moment highlighting women empowering one another. Something I would like to see more of on TV, especially in reality TV.”
