Lifetime’s critically-acclaimed hit series Devious Maids eturns for a third season on a new night, Mondays at 9PM ET/PT, beginning June 1st leading into the series premiere of “UnREAL” at 10PM ET/PT.

Executive produced by Marc Cherry and Eva Longoria, Devious Maids follows five maids with ambition and dreams of their own while working for the rich and famous in Beverly Hills. Devious Maids is set in a world where murder and mayhem collide in the mansions of Beverly Hills’ wealthiest and most powerful families. Class warfare has never been as fun and dirty as it is in the tony enclave where the staff is as clever, witty and downright as devilish as their employers.

The series has centered on a close-knit group of maids, Marisol (Ana Ortiz), Rosie (Dania Ramírez), Carmen (Roselyn Sánchez), Valentina (Edy Ganem) and Zoila (Judy Reyes), who are bonded together by their jobs, life struggles and the melodramatic universe that engulfs their employers. “Devious Maids” also stars Susan Lucci (“All My Children”), Grant Show (“Melrose Place”), Rebecca Wisocky (“The Mentalist”), Tom Irwin (“Grey’s Anatomy”) and Drew Van Acker (“Pretty Little Liars”). Brianna Brown (“Graceland”) and Brett Cullen (“The Dark Knight Rises”) make a return to the series this season, joining new cast members Naya Rivera (“Glee”), Gilles Marini (“Sex and the City”), Cristián de la Fuente (“Valiant Love”), John O’Hurley (“General Hospital”), Justina Machado (“Six Feet Under”), Nathan Owens (“Days of Our Lives”) and Julie Claire (“Web Therapy”).

Season three picks up at the height of last year’s shocking cliffhanger where a deranged gunman takes aim at the maids during Rosie and Spence’s wedding, leaving everyone to wonder who will survive. In the wake of this tragedy, the women lean on each other like never before, even as they face complex problems in their own lives. Zoila ponders her next steps after discovering that she is pregnant and uncertain who the father may be. Carmen realizes there is more than meets the eye to the charming Sebastien (Gilles Marini). Meanwhile, Valentina and Remi struggle to connect in the aftermath of the shooting; Marisol’s aspirations lead her to a surprising career change; and Blanca (Naya Rivera), a new maid in the neighborhood, lands a job with a seemingly picture-perfect family, but soon discovers a terrible secret that could change her life forever.

Looking forward to season three of Devious Maids? Let us know!

Love this show and can’t wait for it to start again!

Hope season three is more riveting like the first one; season two was a bit too off-key for me, honestly.

I can hardly wait! This is one of my FAVORITE programs and the only one I tend to watch live. I sure hope Zoila dumps her ex and goes with the new flame…!

Can’t wait for the new season to begin!!

It’s been so long since Season II ended, I would have to watch the last episode to see what happened. Aren’t they afraid that they will lose viewers and continuity with this extreme lapse in time? This is a good show, reminds me to some extent of
Desperate Housewives. ABC-TV, also known as the worst decision making Network today, should have picked this show up for it’s Sunday night 9PM spot instead of that dreadful “resurrection” which has little hope of returning.

This is a well written, fun show that sadly seems to be treated badly.

1. Marc Cherry appears to want to move on to other shows and not have as much involvement. He is the mastermind.

2. The show’s general concept was great but it did not need to be all Latina maids. The show would have more appeal if had maids of several nationalities.

3. Like it or not this is about rating and skewing to the young. More emphasis should be on the young characters not just the “older” maids.

4. All the maids are having their brush with wealth which is not only unlikely but a bit boring. All the maids find or have found themselves involved with rich men.

5. Some great talent is being underused and in particular while the Powells are often tied into big storylines poor Genevieve is left as a supporting character who steals the scenes. Some references to All My Children might be funny and bring in a few viewerrs – have Genevieve addicted to reruns of the soap or perhaps weekly a new suitor or boyfriend is one of Erica Kane’s ex lovers – even if you don’t know the day time soap it would be funny to see all the men in Genevieve’s life and Zoila’s reaction. Money is a big issue with cable shows where ratings are lower than daytime soaps. Maybe to keep osts down bringing in America caine – Geneivieve’s twin sister who was givien up for adoption by Velma. It would e great to see an Erica Kane character deal with Zoila, Geneveieve, the Powells et al.

6. The show is going to be cancelled if something isn’t done to help the ratings. They need at least 1/2 million more viewers and preferably at least a million more. Moving it to Monday night is not a great move now that it is up against some top hits. The large cast, costumes and fancy sets are cost prohibitive. The non maids are only in 10 episodes out of 13 because let’s be honest – lack of money.

Great characters and it is sad ABC didn’t pick up this show. But things are looking dim after two episodes in season 3.

Susan Lucci Reveals She Was Contacted to Gauge Interest in Becoming ‘The Golden Bachelorette’

All My Children icon and Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement honoree, Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane), apparently was being considered for the lead in the first-ever season of The Golden Bachelorette.

Making this all the more intriguing is Lucci admitted she really enjoyed The Golden Bachelor’s season and has become a fan and thus a part of ‘Bachelor Nation.’

Although former ‘Golden Bachelor’ contestant Joan Vassos was the ultimate pick by ABC and the producers of The Golden Bachelorette, Lucci told PEOPLE that the show reached out to her people.

Susan shared, “I believe that they contacted my publicist and it wasn’t for me.” She added, “I watched The Golden Bachelor, and I really enjoyed watching The Golden Bachelor. This is a new addiction for me.”

And a few years back. her assistant got Lucci hooked on The Bachelor, as she expressed on the dating series, “I was immediately engaged. I cared. I wanted to know more about these people.”

The outlet shared that they did reach out to ABC and Warner Bros. about potential interest in Susan. However, they did not respond. A source then told the publication that Lucci was not offered a role.

For Susan, finding a second chance at love is an interesting proposition; given that she had the most incredible and enduring 53-year marriage to her late husband and manager, Helmet Huber, who passed away at 84-years-old back in March of 2022.

So, what do you think of Susan being contacted to see if she was interested in becoming ABC’s ‘Golden Bachelorette’ for the senior dating-reality series? Comment below.

Mark Consuelos Celebrates One-Year Anniversary as Co-Host of ‘Live’ Alongside Kelly Ripa

Today, April 17th marks a full-year since Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo, All My Children) took over the co-hosting duties of ‘Live” alongside his wife, and longtime co-host, Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley, All My Children).

Consuelos replaced Ryan Seacrest who are six seasons decided to be back on the west coast full-time. For Consuelos, now having the opportunity to work off of Ripa as co-hosts has been something of adjustment for him, but viewers have been eating it up.

Live with Kelly and Mark has remained the No. 1 entertainment talk show on television over the past year, growing 3% in average total viewers to 2.23M per episode.  It is also the most-watched daytime talk show in the last year in key demos of women 18-49 and women 25-54. All of this, since the real-life marrieds teamed-up.

Speaking with Deadline, Kelly Ripa shared why the two are gelling on-screen, “I do think that there is something very possibly relatable about our relationship. We have disagreements like a normal couple, and we’re not afraid to let them unfold on the air and in front of America, and I think people find a lot of themselves in that.”

Mark weighed in how he has progressed as a host, and what he could improve at, sharing, “I’d like to get better at my interviewing skills. I’d like to get better at reading a teleprompter…I think I’m getting better at throwing to commercial. The other day in the middle of the show as we go to commercial, my sign off was ‘See you guys around.’ I mean, the show wasn’t over. The most obvious thing to say would be, ‘We’ll be back right after this.’ But I just said, ‘See you around.’ So we went to commercial and one of the producers (goes) ‘What was that?’ I don’t know… So for the next few sign offs, as a joke, I’d say ‘See you around.’ We got a kick out of it.”

Meanwhile, Kelly has given huge props to Mark, “I find Mark utterly compelling, really interesting, super funny, and he’s bold in a way like nobody else. He says what’s on his mind. If he’s thinking it, he says it.  I’ve done this a long time and oftentimes people will adjust their natural personalities to pander to what they think the audience wants to hear, and Mark will tell people what he thinks, and he doesn’t care if it’s not a popular opinion. It gives him an edginess that I think is really missing in the landscape today. Everybody’s so afraid to say anything, and Mark is unafraid to say exactly what he’s thinking.”

In a statement, Debra O’Connell, President News Group and Networks, Disney Entertainment shared, We could not be more thrilled with how Mark has seamlessly joined the show family as permanent co-host. His undeniable charisma and his and Kelly’s natural chemistry are evident as they deliver the laughs and smiles to our viewers each morning. We are incredibly proud of how Live has continued to evolve and that the audience is responding so enthusiastically.”

So, do you think Mark Consuelos is the best co-host his wife Kelly Ripa has ever had on ‘Live’? How would you say he is doing as co-host after one full year on the job? Comment below.
