Lisa Hochstein Reveals Why She Kept Her Engagement Ring

When Season 5 of The Real Housewives of Miami ended, Lisa Hochstein’s marriage had fallen apart with her husband of nearly 13 years, Dr. Lenny Hochstein. It was a hard time for Lisa, especially as Lenny moved on quickly to another engagement with someone else. But that doesn’t mean Lisa is wallowing.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Miami on Bravo Wednesdays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

Instead, as seen in the RHOM Season 6 premiere episode, Lisa is learning to love again, and she seems eager to put the past behind her — except for one thing: her engagement ring.

Why Lisa Hochstein Kept Her Engagement Ring

Lisa has officially moved on, and is now dating fellow Canadian Jody Glidden, a Harvard graduate and successful tech entrepreneur who understands firsthand the difficulties of divorcing and being a single dad. As seen in Season 6, Episode 1, the two are a loving couple, and Larsa is over the moon about her new relationship. However, she is holding onto one relic from her marriage.

During an afternoon yacht excursion in the Miami harbor with Larsa Pippen and her new beau, Marcus Jordan (who you may know better as Michael Jordan’s son), Lisa opened up about why she still wears her engagement ring.

“[Jody] doesn’t like me wearing it, but I resized it for my middle finger, so I could be like that!” as she demonstrated giving “the finger” to an imaginary Lenny.

It’s not just about the joke potential, though.

“But it doesn’t even mean anything to me. Who cares? It’s a nice piece of jewelry,” she said.

Who Pays for the Engagement Rings on ‘Love Is Blind’? The Inside Scoop

Love Is Blind is back for another season with a brand new cast of individuals hoping to meet their perfect romantic match in the Netflix show’s fourth installment.

The show follows a unique format that sees the men and women dating each other in “pods” where they are unable to see the person who they are romantically involved with.

Participants spend ten days in the pods before some choose to get engaged to one of their co-stars. Only then do they meet their fiancé or fiancée in person.

The proposals on the show take place in the pods so the couples do not see each other in person, however, once they do come face to face, whoever proposes presents their new partner with an engagement ring to seal the deal.

As participants live in accommodation attached to the pods during the time before they get engaged, fans have been curious in the past as to how they get a hold of the engagement rings.

Newsweek has everything you need to know about the behind-the-scenes secrets on Love Is Blind, including who provides the engagement rings.

Who Pays for the Engagement Rings?

Ahead of the Love Is Blind Season 3 finale in November 2022, the series creator, and founder of production company Kinetic Content, Chris Coelen, revealed how the engagements work on the show.

Speaking to Newsweek, Coelen confirmed that, as with rings for the weddings on the series, the show’s production team provide the engagement rings.

He explained: “If they get to the point that they want to propose, we will ultimately give them [the rings].

It’s official, spring is on its way, and outfits for the season ahead are collectively on the minds of editors from across the industry.

The best – and worst

Love Island always promises a good watch when it comes to fashion. From the underboob of 2021 to the perspex heels of 2019, the show undeniably creates trends that live on past the season’s finale date.

With eBay as this year’s fashion sponsor, avid watchers were promised a change in direction, with a move away from fast fashion, and towards scoring second-hand bargains online. And thanks to Amy Bannerman, the stylist who developed an archive of pre-loved pieces for the show, there have been some real fashion highlights.

Tasha, who’s been turning heads as the fashion star in the villa, has been spotted in a vintage Versace two-piece, a Diesel leather number, and a red co-ord by Gaultier Junior to name a few of her best moments. And it doesn’t stop there – Indiyah has shown her penchant for old season Poster Girl and Mark Fast designs, whilst Dami and Luca have opted for shirts from Pleats Please Issey Miyake and Gucci respectively.

When sourcing clothing, Bannerman and her team have been focussing on curating looks around themes created with current runway inspiration and the Love Island aesthetic in mind, like ‘Blurred Lines’, a gender fluid aesthetic which she explains has been adopted by the boys as well as the girls: “there has been a satin silky satin cream shirt that a few of the boys have worn which is very much crossing those lines. And of course, Tasha wearing the Champion men’s bomber jacket which she styled off the shoulder, definitely shone through for the trend.”

Other categories include ‘Dopamine Dressing’ seen through Tasha’s brights and the Poster Girl dresses, Y2K, which has been a go-to for contestants, with many islanders sporting corsets, cargo pants, and beaded jewellery throughout, and Love

Jasmina Outar has become somewhat of a style icon since appearing in Season 14 of Married at First Sight.

On the show, she wore multiple stylish looks and often looked like she was ready to walk the runway of a major fashion show.

The fashionista is popular for her glamorous wardrobe and flawless makeup. She also never misses an opportunity to share her picture-perfect looks online.

The early childhood educator has been enjoying her summer by traveling, attending concerts, and hanging out with other MAFS alums.

With every new outing, Jasmina has a perfect outfit for the occasion.

She recently shared another stunning look as she enjoyed a night out on the town.

Jasmina Outar slays in purple

A recent Instagram post showed Jasmina’s latest look. She posed in front of two large doors with distressed purple paint.

Matching the background, Jasmina rocked a long-sleeved purple and yellow plunging top, with a pair of jeans ripped at the knees.

Clear high heels and a purple mini Telfar bag rounded out her outfit. She finished her look with two dainty necklaces, soft glam makeup and styled her signature dark hair in loose, flowy waves.

Jasmina kept the caption on her post short and sweet, simply adding a purple heart emoji.

This isn’t the first time Jasmina has slayed her looks while going out. She recently turned heads while wearing all white at a Chris Brown concert. Before that, she left fans speechless when she rocked a tiny floral bikini while vacationing in Colombia.
