Why aren't you cleaning?

You're supposed to be cleaning, not surfing the web!

RIGHT- April Fools Day seemed a great day to publish this review, as the maids in this show are NOT what they appear to be!


Synopsis:

Sex. Lies. Murder…
It’s all in a day’s work. From Executive Producer Marc Cherry, creator Talent/Cast: “Devious Maids” stars Susan Lucci (“Genevieve Delatour”), Anna Ortiz (“Marisol Duarte”) Dania of Desperate Housewives, comes Devious Maids: The Complete First Season. Meet five women bonded together by their jobs, their dreams and the dirt they sweep under the rug: Aspiring singer Carmen; Rosie, who longs to be reunited with the child she left back in Mexico; Marisol, whose outward identity masks a desperate hidden agenda; and Zoila and her daughter Valentina – both employed by the delightfully unhinged Genevieve Delatour (Susan Lucci).Before the season is over, illicit affairs will be revealed and depraved secrets exposed, as we learn the sordid details behind a shocking murder. Start your collection with all 13 addictive episodes plus “sin-tillating” bonus features, and relive the intrigue as murder, mystery and mayhem collide amongst the mansions of Beverly Hills!

Cast:
Ramirez (“Rosie Falta”), Roselyn Sanchez (“Carmen Luna”), Judy Reyes (“Zoila Diaz” / “Zoila Del Barrio”), Edy Ganem (“Valentina Diaz” / “Valentina Del Barrio”), Rebecca Wisocky (“Evelyn Powell” ), Tom Irwin (“Adrian Powell”), Brianna Brown (“Taylor Stappord”), Brett Cullen (“Michael Stappord”), and Grant Show (“Spence Westmore”).

• Bloopers

• Extended Scenes


• Come along as the cast and crew share some of their favorite things about shooting the series on location in Atlanta, GA.



Review:

I actually missed seeing 5 episodes during season 1, so I was thrilled to be able to go back and catch them all! I LOVE this show-there is such great acting- Lucci for one has found a characters she can really sink her teeth into! In fact, all the actors/actresses really play their parts quite convincingly and you'll get hooked on the show pretty quickly! There are so many twists and turns, and layers to be peeled back (like the proverbial onion), smoke and mirrors, that you'll still be guessing at some things by season's end! It's also great to see a show with a predominantly Latino cast, but isn't a comedy (which seems to be the norm). Some people call it a show to secretly love, but I think it's just a great drama, with some camp thrown in for amusement, that you'll be happy to come back to over and over!

The Season 2 starts April 20th on Lifetime TV!

So grab this DVD set and get caught up, before Season 2 starts!
