Fans Slam Lisa Rinna Over Her Reaction to Ariana Madix Landing Role in Chicago, as Viewers Tell RHOBH Alum to “Sit Down”

Fans are slamming Lisa Rinna over her seemingly shady comment about Ariana Madix, who just landed a role in Chicago the Musical on Broadway.

In 2007 Lisa played the same role – Roxie Hart, the show’s homicidal lead – long before her greatest performance as the leading pot-stirrer on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Now, 16 years later, Ariana will fill her shoes – stepping into the role also played by Erika Jayne, Lisa’s former co-star.

“I did it Before Bravo,” said Lisa, commenting on a @papiofpop post about Ariana’s big break. “And before [Housewives] — 2007 baby.”

Fans then reacted to Lisa’s comment, shared by @commentsbybravo on Instagram.

“Does she want a cookie?” wrote @byewighellodrama, while another viewer added, “Rinna, no one cares.”

“Rinna missing the point entirely,” said @gibsonoma, before someone continued the sentiment, “It’s what she does best.”

“Just like when Erika got that part and Rinna brought it up about 10,000 times per episode,” said a different user. “We know… got it.”

Another fan claimed Lisa “always has to make it about herself,” while a separate viewer told her to “sit down.”

One user defended the actor, who has starred in multiple soap operas and series throughout the years.

“We can say what we want about Rinna,” said the fan, “but at least give her that credit. She truly did it without Bravo and can prob do it again without them.”

A different viewer took a swing at Ariana, claiming her presence is getting old.

“I don’t care,” they wrote. “Ariana has beaten that dead horse to the ground and I am tired of seeing her face now.”

Rinna may have done it in 2007 baby, but she forgot to mention her bad review.
https://www.oregonlive.com/aenow/2007/05/review_rinna_wrecks_chicago.html#:~:text=She%20sings%20flat.,dancing%20is%20tentative%20and%20lackluster.

Review: Rinna wrecks “Chicago”
Published: May. 30, 2007, 5:20 p.m.

Every once in a while, it’s worth it to see a performance that completely recalibrates your sense of what’s bad.

Audiences have just such an opportunity with the touring production of “Chicago” that opened a weeklong run at Keller Auditorium on Tuesday night, thanks to its star, onetime soap-opera actress Lisa Rinna, who gives new meaning to “inept” with her portrayal of murderous Roxie Hart. She sings flat. She lacks stage presence. At times she can’t remember lyrics. And her dancing is tentative and lackluster.

That’s all the more surprising when you consider Rinna’s claim to fame is being an also-ran a few seasons back on TV’s “Dancing With the Stars.” How on earth did she get through that show without being able to nail a step?

As Rinna’s performance becomes more ragged as the show drags on, the person you feel sorry for is veteran Broadway star Tom Wopat, who’s terrific as slick trial lawyer Billy Flynn. He’s magnetic whenever he’s onstage, and it’s a shame he has to share the same airspace with such an amateur.

Also impressive is Eric Leviton as sad-sack Amos, and Carol Woods as the prison matron, who has a huge voice that’s made for filling such a large hall.

But in the end, it’s not enough, as Rinna single-handedly sinks the show. Somehow she’s managed to get booked to perform on Broadway next month with her husband, actor Harry Hamlin, also a “Dancing” alum.

One wonders how Hamlin will handle the show’s most ironic line, when Flynn lets Roxie know exactly where she stands: “You’re a phony celebrity, kid! In a couple of weeks no one will know who you are. That’s Chicago.”

Here’s hoping.

The highlighted part said, “She sashayed with the best of the dancers, had excellent comedic timing, and carried herself with confidence. I couldn’t keep my eyes off her. Her high-wattage performance was a stand-out amidst the more tenured Broadway stars in the roles of Billy Flynn and Velma Kelly.”
