Lisa Hochstein risked an awkward run-in with ex-husband Lenny as they both attended Casadonna Restaurant’s grand opening in Miami on Friday.
The Real Housewives of Miami star, 41, split from the plastic surgeon, 57, in May last year, with the estranged couple still butting heads over their divorce arrangements.
Stepping out the to event, Lenny was seen sneaking into the venue via the back entrance with his new fiancée Katharina Mazepa, 28.
Meanwhile, Lisa was joined by her boyfriend Jody Glidden, who she began dating in February this year.
The TV personality posed for photos inside, wearing a black mini dress with a side slit and orange PVC flowers across the neckline.

The outing comes amid reports that Lenny is trying to make a last-minute change to his divorce arrangements with Lisa.
He filed an emergency petition in court on August 10 to withdraw his divorce settlement, according to Page Six. The exes had previously agreed on the settlement.
However, it may be a mutual move, as a second filing said Lenny’s attorney had conferred with Lisa’s counsel and both sides had agreed to resolve the matter without a hearing before the court.
In one of the filings, Lenny’s attorney noted that he had moved to withdraw the settlement in ‘anticipation’ of Lisa turning it down.

The surgeon also requested that the original, withdrawn settlement offer be kept confidential.
Despite his filings seeming to indicate that he and Lisa were continuing to work out a more equitable settlement, a source close to the former couple described his latest moves as another attempt to harm Lisa by extending their gruelling divorce proceedings.
The source claimed that he was withdrawing the settlement to drag out the legal process in an effort to ‘bankrupt’ her with escalating legal fees.
They also alleged that he was trying to get her to sign a new ‘low-ball’ settlement.
Lenny had previously been ordered to pay Lisa $8,000 per month in temporary support.
The new hurdle for the couple as they try to finalize their divorce is a surprising development, as Page Six reported that they were close to agreeing on a settlement in early July.
The feuding exes were married for 12 years, and they share two children: their son Logan, seven, and their daughter Elle, three.
In July, Lenny revealed that he had gotten engaged to his model girlfriend Katharina Mazepa.
That appeared to infuriate Lisa, who wrote scathing ‘congratulations’ to her ‘current husband and his mistress.’

She also took issue with Lenny’s mother, who had previously made a dig at Lisa when she congratulated her son for ‘getting a woman who love and respect you,’ before adding that he ‘did not have that’ in his marriage to Lisa.
‘What a wonderful mother in law and grandmother. How disgusting,’ Lisa wrote after learning of the engagement news.
She had previously accused Lenny of having an affair with his new fiancée while they were still together, which he has denied.
Even after he announced the engagement, he was inundated by comments on social media reminding him that he was still married to Lisa, as they have not finalized their divorce nor been declared legally single yet. ‘
