Bethenny Frankel is firmly “Team Lisa” Hochstein amid her estranged husband Lenny Hochstein’s engagement.
The “Real Housewives of New York City” alum. took to TikTok on Sunday to beat the 57-year-old plastic surgeon for proposing to Katharina Mazepa.
“Seeing pictures of Lenny Hochstein getting engaged is like standing at the checkout counter and seeing that bargain bin with, like, 75 cents and three dollars, where you might find something, but you usually don’t,” Frankel, 52, said.
“People named Lenny Hochstein and their engagements are not sexy,” she continued.
However, the Skinnygirl creator noted that she will “watch the full post” when Lisa “and her hot guy, (Jody Glidden), got engaged.”
Frankel’s followers praised her for being a “girl’s girl” in the comments section.
“Howling at this analogy, so true,” wrote one social media user, while another thanked Frankel for “showing up” for Lisa.
When Lenny told his Instagram followers he got down on one knee, Lisa shared a sarcastic congratulations to the couple with her story.
“Congratulations to my current husband and his mistress on their engagement,” the “Real Housewives of Miami” star, 41, wrote via Instagram on Saturday.
Just a few hours before the news broke, Lisa had enjoyed an “incredibly romantic dinner” with Glidden, who she began publicly dating in March.
Lenny filed for divorce from Lisa in May 2022 after 12 years of marriage and two children — son Logan, 7, and daughter Elle, 3. The former couple are still legally married.
Can’t get enough ‘Real Housewives?’
They have since been embroiled in a contentious divorce battle that has made headlines for cheating allegations and denials, as well as alleged verbal abuse and child support.
The duo entered into a prenuptial agreement in June, according to court documents, and Page Six exclusively reported earlier this month that they were close to settling their bitter split.
Although Lenny’s followers expressed mixed feelings about his relationship milestone over the weekend, his mom celebrated — and shaded Lisa in the process.
“I will be very happy that this time you get a woman who loves and respects you,” Marina Hochstein wrote in an Instagram comment. “You certainly didn’t have that in your previous marriage.”
Lisa clapped back, calling her mother-in-law “disgusting.”
