Following the taping of the December 5 finale, Ariana took to her Instagram Story, where she shared a screenshot of her perfect score and admitted she was already missing the show.

“A- Is it crazy I miss it already? I don’t have rehearsal tomorrow??!!!! B- If you see me in this same glam for all my press tomorrow no you didn’t … C- Never taking this [necklace] off [Lele Pons],” she wrote.

On Kristen’s Instagram Story, she shared a behind-the-scenes image of herself and Ariana along with a heartwarming message to her longtime friend.

“[Ariana Madix] I tell you this every week, that I am so incredibly proud of you. Physically, mentally, spiritually you’ve grown and flourished [and] you’ve worked your a** off for this, Ari! You and [Pasha Pashkov] are a match made in dancing heaven! Bring home that Mirrorball, baby! I love you,” she declared.

“Gooooo [Ariana Madix]!” she shared with the pics.

In more exciting news for Ariana, she is now set to make her Broadway debut!

During an appearance on Live with Kelly and Mark on Wednesday morning, Ariana made the stunning announcement that she will be reprising the role of Roxie Hart in Chicago, joining a list of Bravolebrities who once played the role, including Erika Jayne and Lisa Rinna.

“It’s just the biggest dream come true,” she said while revealing the news, via PEOPLE. “I cannot believe this is real life. I’m going to cry.”

Vanderpump Rules season 11 premieres next month on Bravo.

I’m so happy for her! Beyoncé was a bold choice, lol. I’m don’t know how Dancing with the Stars works, so I’m not sure if she picked that song herself. And to be almost 40 and learn to dance like that cannot be easy!! To thrive after heartache is the best (still not planning on watching VPR again tho)

Can she even sing? I’m amazed by the amount of opportunities she has received from this scandal, and people completely ignoring that she also cheated with Tom when he was with Kristen.

Ariana killed it on DWTS and will show Erikunt and Rinrat how Roxie is done.

Meanwhile Karaoke Tom will be on Tamrat and Turdi Menstrualcramp’s Two Twits In A Pod. 🫠

What deal or relationship does bravo have with that Chicago show, why have so many bravolebrity stars done this role?

Valid question. Haven’t Nene and Kandi also starred as Roxie?

With the exception of maybe Kandi, I think Ariana will be above and beyond the rest.

Watching Ariana’s final dance makes me think this is probably how Erikunt sees herself. Even though she is nothing like Ariana

Erika doesn’t dance. She stomps around the stage like an aging stripper.

Chicago has been “stunt casted” for literally decades now. It means nothing to be in that production – it has become a vanity project at best. Ho hum.

Never heard about Luann doing it, but it was all Rinna talked about when Loser Erika got hired for it

It never happened.

While her “Real Housewives of New York” co-stars were casting doubt on her singing chops during its reunion show, de Lesseps, 54, she told them, “I want to tell you all right now, that for someone who can’t sing, I just got cast in ‘Chicago’ on Broadway.”

When Page Six contacted the show about the scuttlebutt a couple of weeks ago, they told us there were no plans for her to appear. A production spokesperson told us at the time, “Luann de Lesseps is not confirmed to join the cast of ‘Chicago’ at this time.” Apparently, de Lesseps didn’t get the memo.Jul 26, 2019

Heidi December 6, 2023 - 2:17 pm

Rinna and Erika were. Luann was trying to get cast and claimed at a reunion she was in the show, but it never happened.

Ariana was amazing on DWTS. She really surprised me. If you didn’t see any of her dances, you can see them on youtube–her foxtrot at the semifinals was particularly amazing, her Halloween tango and her Britney Spears tribute were also. But she finished where she should have and gave her best. So happy to hear about Chicago. Can she sing? Apparently. But after the really hard, complex choreography she did on DWTS, that part of Roxie, dance wise, will be easy peasy for her.

IMO Ariana should have won that mirror ball trophy, but ABC had to make sure one of their own won, keep it in the family. Idiots.
EG has to be seething right now after just a week ago she claimed they wanted her to reprise her role 😂 She probably called Ratso Rinna and cried like a baby and they both called Ariana every name they know. I LOVE IT! Plus she can be close to her boyfriend who looks so in love with her. https://media1.giphy.com/media/nElL8Oj7D86cCfWncK/giphy-downsized-small.mp4

1. I hope now that DWTS is over we can get a break from Ariana. I personally need it.
2. Does Katie ever NOT look miserable. Puke!
3. I don’t give a shit about Maurice. Stop trying to make him happen.
4. I saw a clip of Rimjob in Chicago and it was bad. Really bad.

I’ve noticed in several recent photos, the heaviness of Ariana’s thighs. One would have thought the dancing would have thinned them a bit.
