As you might recall, when Erika Girardi found out she had landed the iconic role of Roxie Hart in the legendary Broadway musical, Chicago, she broke the news to husband Tom Girardi in a very straightforward way because, let's face it, Erika Jayne does not mess around.
"I mean, not even with any like two seconds of thinking," she previously told Broadway.com last month. "I told my husband, 'I'm sorry, I'm moving to New York. You've got to come visit. But I'm doing this role.'"
Well, now The Daily Dish knows exactly how Tom responded to the news that she'd be moving to NYC for her nearly three-month run in the show.
"You have to understand something, Tom is like the biggest Broadway fan ever. So when I came home and I was like 'Honey, I have this opportunity,' and he was like, 'You must take it,'" The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills singer told The Daily Dish during a press day at The Lamb’s Club in NYC last month for her upcoming debut in Chicago, which kicks off on January 6 and wraps March 29. "So he's probably more excited than I am."
She then opened up even more about Tom's love of Broadway, above.
