Erika Girardi made her official Broadway debut as Roxie Hart in Chicago on January 6, and you can bet her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills friends couldn't wait to come to NYC and see her perform. Lisa Rinna, Dorit Kemsley, Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, Kyle Richards, and Sutton Stracke made it in time for her January 14 performance, and it looks like everyone was incredibly supportive of their castmate.
Lisa wrote on Instagram, "THE NAME ON EVERYBODY’S LIPS IS GONNA BE......ROXIE." And Dorit said, "What would your 21 year old self say about having this massive billboard in Times Square with your picture on it [Erika]?!! What a thrill to see you dream big and make your dreams come true. You’re an inspiration, and proof that hard work, dedication, perseverance and the right mindset pays off. So proud and in awe of you my friend. Shine bright- you deserve this!"
Erika was definitely touched her pals flew across the country to watch her on stage. "There are a lot of things I could say about this moment, but these women showed up and made me feel so special," she wrote on Instagram, making sure to note that Kyle was there "when the curtain came up" but was being seen by a doctor while the group pic was being taken. "I cried like a baby tonight seeing you all at curtain call. I appreciate you all beyond words."
And it appears she wasn't the only 90210 lady shedding tears. Check out the photos following Erika's performance, below.
