Real Housewives of Miami's Lisa Hochstein Slams Miami Design Preservation League: "This Minority Group Needs a Hobby"
As we reported earlier, Real Housewives of Miami cast member Lisa Hochstein really doesn't appreciate it when you say nasty things about her on the Internet. But that hasn't stopped her from trashing preservationists seeking control over Hochstein's Star Island home, which they say is historic.
Hochstein, with her husband, have clashed with the Miami Design Preservation League since December, when the league submitted a proposal to designate the Hochstein's 1920s home at 42 Star Island as a historic building. The measure would foil proposed renovations by the Hochsteins.
Lisa Hochstein's remained relatively quiet about the whole ordeal -- until now. Earlier this afternoon, the housewife went off on the MDPL, posting a series of angry tweets:
Much of Hochstein's anger stems from the fact that she owns the building:
It's our home , we. Bought it , how in the world should it be ANYONE'S concern what we do with it? , how does it affect anyone ? Nuts .— Lisa Hochstein (@lisahochstein) February 6, 2013
This minority group needs a hobby , really ridiculous and obviously month g better to do ,they should be ashamed . This is a PRIVATE home— Lisa Hochstein (@lisahochstein) February 6, 2013
Someone should maybe tell her that buildings of all sorts can be granted (or, uh, pushed into) historical status. Preservationists would argue that historic buildings, public or private, deserve to be saved.
She also seems to think MDPL's trying to ride her coattails of sweet, sweet Bravo fame:
They are just trying to gain notoriety , if they wanted this home deemed historic they should of raised the money themselves when they had— Lisa Hochstein (@lisahochstein) February 6, 2013
Opportunity but obviously it was not that important until WE bought it , hysterical !— Lisa Hochstein (@lisahochstein) February 6, 2013
"Hilarious," in passive-aggressive Housewives-speak, means "infuriating," or, in this case, "cut-a-bitch-worthy."
But then she drops a bomb. Maybe.
Move over , this is not a museum, it's our private soon to be family home , how ridiculous are these people?— Lisa Hochstein (@lisahochstein) February 6, 2013
"Soon to be family home"? Is Lisa pregnant? That would be a huge deal for the star, whose fertility troubles were featured on the last season of RHOM. And it would also explain these rather, um, mood-swingy Internet missives.
If that's the case, congratulations are in order! Unfortunately, they probably won't be coming from the MDPL.
