Real Housewives of Miami star Lisa Hochstein knows a thing or two about keeping her marriage feisty — and she’s not shy about telling people how to make their significant others significantly happier this Valentine’s Day.
In an exclusive chat with Wetpaint Entertainment, Lisa revealed her advice for having the perfect V-Day.
“To all those ladies out there, definitely keep your man interested,” she told us. “Do something sexy. Buy some sexy lingerie. If you can’t go out for an amazing meal, cook him an amazing meal.”
Don’t worry fellas, Lisa has some words of wisdom for you too.
“Make sure you're doing those little things, because those little things definitely count,” she cautioned. “One year my husband forgot to get me flowers and chocolates, and even though he bought me a beautiful gift, to me those little things really make a difference.”
Why go through all the trouble? Because the excitement of marriage can run out fast, and the key to making any relationship flourish is mutual appreciation, says Lisa.
“That's what [Valentine’s Day] is about, showing your appreciation for the person you're with,” she explained. “You have to keep that fire lit when you're married because things get old really quick. If you don't have that, it’s a surefire way to lose that spark and have a failed marriage.”
So how are Lisa and husband Lenny Hochstein planning to celebrate? Considering she’s married to the “Boob God,” his time is definitely in limited supply. But that doesn’t mean they don’t make an effort to celebrate the most romantic day of the year.
“Honestly, he’s so busy,” Lisa said of her hubby. “Working as hard as he does is romantic enough for me. I’m just happy he takes me out for a beautiful dinner. It’s the typical cliché stuff: The flowers, the chocolates, the dinner, wearing pink, and then coming home and using your imagination!”
We can’t argue with that tried-and-true formula!
