'Real Housewives' Star

Sues Internet Commenter

Over Call Girl Remarks

1/27/2013 11:44 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0127_lisa-hochstein_getty"Real Housewives of Miami" star Lisa Hochstein does NOT have sex for money and she's suing some random woman on the Internet who said that she did.

Hochstein recently 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.

According to docs, Jessica wrote "Lisa was an escort who also did soft porn in Vegas" ... in response to an article about Lisa joining the "Real Housewives" franchise..

But Hochstein says it's a bold-faced lie and that she's never been in the escort business or done soft core porn in Las Vegas. Hochstein claims Jessica's remark damaged her reputation and threatened both her employment and social life.

Pretty random to go after someone who commented on a web site ... but to each their own.

Hochstein is suing for more than $15,000. A judge has yet to rule.

Moment of Clarity    

To avoid being sued I'll just repeat Hochstein's response: It's a bold-faced lie. She's never been in the escort business or done soft core porn ...in Las Vegas ;)

what a joke. someone is trying to get some attention.

note to lisa: nobody knew who you were prior to this show. if the comment was made prior to the show airing...it didn't damage anything.

What a pathetic loser this woman is. You cant file a lawsuit every time someone says something bad about you. Grow up lady.

More like a desperate housewife. She joining the worst one of the franchise and the most likely to have crap said about her when she starts acting stupid. That's a whole lotta of lawsuits.

It's a little surprising that Lisa prices her reputation at only $15,000

If, as she says, the comment was a lie... I think she's right to sue. Freedom of speech does not mean freedom to defame.

Wow, you really have nothing better to do with your time than surfing for comments to sue. It makes you look like a loser--oh wait? Will I be sued too?

"It's a bold-faced lie. She's never been in the escort business or done soft core porn ...in Las Vegas"

NOT in Las Vegas? So, umm does that mean she could have done it elsewhere??

Lucky for the other woman that Hochstein's reputation is only worth 15,000$
