Erika Girardi Shares Janet Jackson's Connection to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
Apparently, Janet Jackson goes way back with these RHOBH ladies.
We were definitely impressed when we saw the A-list celeb who came out to watch Erika Girardi kill it as Roxie Hart in Chicago: Janet Jackson was in the audience! The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Broadway diva posted a photo featuring her and Janet, writing, "When the QUEEN comes to town... Broadway shuts down.
It was an HONOR to perform for you tonight."
Erika also talked about the famous guest in the audience on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on February 19 (clip above). "We have a mutual friend and she came. We went out after. She's lovely," Erika said of Janet.
And she shared some Janet Jackson-RHOBH trivia which we previously never knew: "She grew up with the Richards girls. She knows Kim [Richards] and Kyle [Richards] and Kathy [Hilton]. They grew up in the same neighborhood, Andy [Cohen]. And then the Van Pattens," she said, referring to RHOBH alum Eileen Davidson and her husband, Vince Van Patten.
RHOBH cast members Lisa Rinna, Dorit Kemsley, Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, Kyle Richards, and Sutton Stracke previously came to see Erika on Broadway, but it was this new tidbit of info that caught our attention: On WWHL, Erika revealed that "everyone" from "every [Housewives] franchise" has reached out to congratulate her.
"Sonja [Morgan] came the other day!" Erika said.
