Ariana Madix from Vanderpump Rules has become the latest Bravolebrity to make her Broadway debut as Roxie Hart in Chicago. On opening night, her VPR cast members Scheana Shay and Lala Kent were in attendance as Ariana Madix received a standing ovation. Although her ex, Tom Sandoval, wasn't in attendance, he still shared his thoughts on her big career move.

According to Ariana, she and her ex Tom Sandoval are "no contact," but that doesn't mean that Tom is staying totally silent about her. In addition to saying that she "belittled" him during their relationship, Sandoval has shared his thoughts on the fact that his ex-girlfriend has made her Broadway dreams come true.

Tom Sandoval says he would be "really proud" if he was still with Ariana Madix

When speaking to E! News, he said, "That was always her dream and I didn't know if that was going to happen for her. I'd be really proud of her and would probably be emotional."

Ahead of her opening night in the musical, Ariana Madix spoke to Vanity Fair about the career move and the topic of Sandoval was definitely not off the table.

She said she definitely didn't think that he would come see her in Chicago and when asked if she thinks he's jealous since "he's the singer," Ariana had a simple response: "No, it was always me."

Tom Sandoval is moving forward with his acting career

It looks like Ariana Madix isn't the only one who's branching out from Vanderpump Rules -- Tom Sandoval also has acting in his future.

On Thursday, Feb 8, Lifetime Movie Network is premiering a movie starring Sandoval called Tall, Dark, and Dangerous. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sandoval will be playing the roommate of one of the main characters in this romantic thriller. The description reads:

"Tall, Dark and Dangerous is a Valentine’s Day-themed movie about Alice (Jamie Bernadette) realizing that Chris (Matthew Pohlkamp), the seemingly perfect guy she met on a dating app, is not the person he seems and actually stole the identity of his former roommate, played by Sandoval. Michael Paré, Tracy Nelson, Eric Roberts and Jackée Harry round out the film’s cast."

Sandoval says he initially moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting and music and he had a few roles under his belt before Vanderpump Rules came along, but says he's excited to step back into the acting world. "I was doing movies early on in my L.A. time and then obviouslyVanderpump Ruleshappened. That juggernaut completely shifted me into reality TV. So, now it's really cool to come back and do something like this," he told E! News.
