He had it coming. He had it coming. He had it coming all along. But this isn't about him, it's about her! Ariana Madix just made her Broadway debut as naive murderess Roxie Hart in Chicago, where she will be performing the role for the next eight weeks. And of course, her Vanderpump Rules sisters came out to support their girl.
“Soooooo extremely proud!!!” wrote Shay, adding that her friend “absolutely crushed it!!!!”
Madix's boyfriend, Daniel Wai, was there for her big debut as well.
Pumpers! Before taking the stage, Madix reflected on her accomplishment on Instagram, sharing behind-the-scenes pics from rehearsal and writing, “When the reality is even better than the dream.

For our June cover story, Ariana Madix recalled getting into a New York acting conservatory but choosing to attend a liberal arts college at the behest of her parents, who wanted her to get a bachelor's degree. “Looking back, I would never change it, but in the moment, I was begrudgingly going because I wanted to go to New York and be on Broadway,” Madix told Glamour. Well, the dream was deferred, but eventually it was realized. She'll be on Broadway through the end of March.
