'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.

this lady doesn't realise every story on the internet has hater comment lies, they call it free speech but its a bunch of lies, if she wants to sue she should go ahead, but filing a lawsuit is drawin more attention to it.

Anonymous comments on the internet directed at public personalities are considered satire under the constitution....no different from jokes on the tonight show. They are, and have since the intenets inception, been universally considered foolish and extreme and no reasonable person would take them as fact in law.

Wow ...    

It seems there are a lot of people suing for comments these days. From the Steubenville Rape case, to thedirty.com and Sarah Jones, now this woman. Will be interesting to see what happens and how these suits change the net laws and regulations.

Terrible legal move on Ms Hochstein's part.


A large number of gossip sites are reflecting back to this TMZ story "that she's never been in the escort business or done soft core porn in Las Vegas"


She now comes across as a vengeful person who is hoping for some free publicity to extend her soon to be short lived career. Had she simply settled it quietly between the attorneys and Lederman, everyone would have moved on.


Once more, she's never been in the escort business or done soft core porn in Las Vegas"
