  • Ariana’s career has taken an impressive turn, with the Vanderpump Rules star landing a role as Roxie in Chicago.
  • There’s been speculation that Ariana’s relationship drama with ex-boyfriend Tom influenced her casting, with parallels between Roxie’s experiences and Ariana’s own life.
  • Ariana joins a prestigious lineup of Bravo celebrities who have starred in Chicago, leaving viewers curious about her next move in the entertainment industry.

Vanderpump Rules star Ariana Madix’s career has taken an unexpected turn thanks to her upcoming role in Chicago, but was she cast as Roxie due to her personal relationship drama? The role is the latest feather in Ariana’s cap since facing public humiliation in March 2023 when Tom Sandoval, her ex-boyfriend of nine years, admitted to having an affair with her former friend, Rachel Leviss. In the time since, Ariana’s scored several new brand deals and released a book, Single AF Cocktails: Drinks for Bad B*tches.

Ariana’s ascent from the aftermath of her breakup with Tom to the theater as Roxie in Chicago is nothing short of impressive. It seems like a reclamation of power, a theme evident in her recent ventures. As Ariana navigates the spotlight with Scandoval in her rearview, does her road to Roxie connect to her talents as a theater major in college, or does it represent an influential narrative of personal redemption?

Ariana’s Scandoval Misfortune Has Led To Success

Castmate Lala Kent said it herself in the Vanderpump Rules season 11 trailer, “I’ve never seen someone get cheated on, and suddenly she becomes god!” No doubt Lala was referring to the favorable attention Ariana’s received since Scandoval made headlines. This was proven on December 6, 2023, when Ariana posted an Instagram video of her dreams coming true on the Live with Kelly and Mark morning show, revealing that she will portray Roxie on Broadway starting January 29, 2024. Ariana said, “I cannot believe this is real life. I’m going to cry.”

Ariana stars in Chicago from January 29 to March 24, 2024 at the Ambassador Theatre in New York. Tickets are on sale now.

Did Ariana’s Relationship Drama Influence Casting?

Ariana’s casting as Roxie has fueled speculation about whether her past relationship drama with ex-boyfriend Tom played a role. Some even suggest that the captivating parallels between Roxie and Ariana’s real-life experiences might have contributed to the casting director’s selection. Ariana’s followers can’t help but draw connections, with Roxie similarly feeling burned by the men in her life. This casting choice adds a new element to Ariana’s public persona, making people curious about the behind-the-scenes dynamics that resulted in her Broadway fame. Even if her breakup with Tom had a minor impact, Ariana’s likely too excited about the role to care.

Ariana Joins Other Bravo Celebs Cast in Chicago

Adding another Bravo celebrity to the roster, Ariana joins a prestigious lineup of those who’ve starred in Chicago. As noted by People, Erika Jayne, Lisa Rinna, Kandi Burruss, and NeNe Leakes have all played roles in the past. Erika and Lisa starred as Roxie, while NeNe and Kandi took on the part of Matron “Mama” Morton. With a force-to-reckon-with personality, resilient attitude, and a multifaceted skill set, Ariana’s options seem limitless, leaving many to wonder where and when she’ll make her next move in the entertainment industry or if she’ll take a break from all the chaos. From her successful stint in reality TV to her foray into entrepreneurship, anything could be next for the talented and enigmatic Ariana.

Vanderpump Rules is a reality-drama series created for Bravo that stars Lisa Vanderpump, a former star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, as she expands her restaurant empire and staff. The cast consists of Lisa’s staff members across her various establishments in West Hollywood as they try to build their futures and establish relationships that range from friendly to romantic. All of which frequently turn messy as mixing with business pleasure, as they are warned, doesn’t always end well.
