Lifetime Considering Bringing Marc Cherry's Devious Maids To Their Line-up!

An interesting item yesterday appeared at Deadline.com with news that their still could be life for Marc Cherry’s follow-up to Desperate Housewives, Devious Maids!

According to Deadline, “Lifetime is looking at the pilot, which missed the cut at ABC, and has had conversations with its producer, ABC Studios. While Lifetime appears interested, sources stress that the talks are preliminary. The cable network has been looking at a number of busted broadcast pilots and cancelled series,  but Devious Maids seems to be closer than most to the new, younger and sexier direction Lifetime is taking with series like The Client List.”

Based on the Mexican format, Devious Maids follows four maids (Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramirez, Roselyn Sanchez, Judy Reyes) with ambition and dreams of their own while they work for the rich and famous in Beverly Hills. The project’s cast also includes Susan Lucci, and Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria is among its executive producer.

So will La Lucci still get to play her comedic turn on the series?  What do you think of the chances of Lifetime picking-up Devious Maids? Do you think it’s a wise choice and would you tune-in? Let us know!

Too bad Lifetime didn’t do the same for AMC and OLTL.

My thought exactly. It still isn’t too late. Some of the actors are still available. Others could recycle in and out, depending on their availability.

I agree too, but I’m afraid it probably is too late. So many of the actors have gone on to other things and same for the production crews. They were an important part of these shows.

So true! The had two ready made shows & could’ve been raking in the ratings! I’ll never get why they were dismissed by all the stations! Somebody should’ve had enough sense to take them on!

I hope they pick it up, because it sounded like an interesting show. I think Marc Cherry is wonderful……loved Desperate Housewives, and was looking forward to watching Devious Maids, but of course ABC did it again and made a stupid decision. Well, I hope their bad move becomes Lifetimes big Gain.

I will watch anything that Susan Lucci is in. She could do a show on the proper way to replace a roll of toilet paper and I’d watch. I miss my Erica Kane so much!!!

I hope they do! They could add it to their Sunday night line-up. First “The Client List”, followed by “Devious Maids”.

I so would love to see this happen – Devious Maids on tv on Lifetime or any network. I think the original problem or challenge was four Latino maids and the stereotypes. A bigger market for viewers may have been created with four maids from four different ethnicities. What Lifetime should think though is that forget about the four maids who can bring in their old fans but look realistically at Susan Lucci bringing in the soap fans from daytime including those who boycotted ABC. She could help sustain the show and prove she isn’t a hasbeen. People will have… Read more »

At least it won’t be on abc.

I hope Maids does make it to Lifetime, but Cherry may have to re-write it to be less stereotypical. I have a feeling that is the reason why ABC declined.

I think it could be even more fun if a couple of the “bosses” were non-white and their maids were white.

Whatever happens, just keep Susan Lucci!!

I hope Lifetime picks it up. I think it looks very entertaining, but if it had been on ABC I would not have watched it. Maybe ABC turning it down was a good thing:)

Chrishell Stause and Singer G Flip Confirm Relationship

During the premiere of Friday night’s Selling Sunset reunion show on Netflix, there were several major moments, but one of them surprised many.

Former All My Children, Days of our Lives, and ‘Young and the Restless’ star, Chrishell Stause confirmed that she is in a relationship with Australian singer, G Flip.

Stause revealed that she is seeing the non-binary singer after the moderator, Tan France asked Chrishell if she was seeing anyone. The former soap star expressed: “I recently have been spending a lot of time with someone that’s very important to me. Their name is G Flip. They’re non-binary, so they go by they/them,” adding, “They are an extremely talented musician.”

Leave it to her soap background to play a part in the ultimate connection between Chrishell and G Flip. Stause explained: “It started because I was just going to be in their video. And it’s about this chaotic love story. I come from soaps, I love acting. And with the job that we have, I don’t always get to do it. At first of course I was like yes, let’s do that.”

G Flip’s latest single GAY 4 Me is out now and her new single is dropping on May 13th, GET ME OUTTA HERE.

Previously, Chrishell was dating her ‘Selling Sunset’ boss, Jason Oppenheim, who opined about the break-up of their relationship on the special. In a scene shown on the Netflix special, Oppenheim shared, “This is not the time of my life where I want to have a family.”  Months back, reports had surfaced that the couple had differences they could not overcome.  However, now Jason expressed that Stause was “the love of my life” and said he may regret forever the fact that he let her go.

Now back to present time.  According to PEOPLE.com, Stause is enjoying the company of G Flip, and the two were seen out and about at West Hollywood’s nightclub/bar, The Abbey, this past Thursday cozying up to one another.

In addition, it appears that Stause and G Flip are now living together in Chrishell’s Los Angeles home, which reportedly was purchased, in part, by her selling her wedding to her ex husband, This Is Us star, Justin Hartley.

Over the last 24 hours, Stause took to her Instagram story clad in a bikini, and showed us the renovation progress of a large closet at her home.  She closed the IG story withm “I’m gonna come out of it now,” to which several of her former DAYS castmates had fun with the ‘play on words’ response and shared some comments back to her.

So, what do you think of Chrishell entering into a relationship with G Flip? We wish them the best. Share your thoughts below.
