Devious Maids is set to begin airing all-new episodes when the premiere of its second season happens tomorrow night on Lifetime beginning at 10PMEST/9PMCST!

While the interwoven stories continues for the maids, soap opera enthusiasts are also dying to know just what is in store for former All My Children icon Susan Lucci in her role of wealthy divorcee and effervescent socialite, Genevieve Delatour!

According to a preview in TV Guide with Devious Maids executive producer Sabrina Wind, it looks to be an intriguing season for Ms. Delatour! To recap at the end of season one:  Hours before Genevieve was set to tie the knot for the fourth time, her son Remi ran off to Africa and her fiancé Philippe “committed suicide.”

Now EP Wind previews for Lucci’s Delatour in season two: “Zoila (Judy Reyes) may have been the one to encourage Genevieve’s son to run off to Africa, but the two actually come to a much happier, even closer, even more fun place than they were last year.”

As to if there will be a new man in Genevieve’s life? Wind stated: “We do not have an immediate romantic relationship for Genevieve.  She is instead getting herself in trouble in all sorts of other ways.”

So are you looking forward to seeing Susan on Devious Maids? Do you kick out of her performance as Genevieve Delatour? What would you like to see happen to Ms. Delatour in season two? Let us know … but first watch a very clever edited promo for the new season below titled “OMG”!

I’m excited this show is back. All the actors are so good and the stories are fun and have many twists and turns. And Susan is, as always, a delight to watch!

Genevieve is a delight but I wish they would have given her a bigger storyline or at least juicier! Susan Lucci shines here but I fear as this is a cable show she will be left out of a few episodes. You can tell an actor is good if they can stand out in a good way even if they they have a minor role or supporting role and they aren’t the bad person (Powell’s). Lucci somehow steals the show – so much fun. Okay, on the bad side, those who liked Erica Kane, a American icon, might be shocked to see Susan Lucci as a goody goody naive,neurotic, need but still nubile character and might not her not plaing the bad girl. But Lucci does amazing work with what she is given. Now she deserves an Emmy for this – but sadly it is a cable show so it might be hard and if history repeats itself Lucci has along wait for an Emmy.

So agree with you she is a lot of fun to watch on this show! Cute fun show ! This is why I was scratching my head when Globe put that story out of her being approached by JFP at Y&R they for one thing could not afford her. Still trying to figure out why MTS was making such a big deal out of the story??

How much do you think Susan Lucci makes on Devious Maids? I do think the ladies and Eric Braedon would feel threatened if Lucci went to Y and R. But if the ratings don’t pick up I wonder if Lucci will be looking for work?

Kelly Ripa To Guest Star On CW’s Riverdale

Here’s a fun bit of casting news!  Live with Kelly and Ryan and former All My Children star, Kelly Ripa  (Ex-Hayley) is joining her real-life husband, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) on the hit CW soapy drama Riverdale.

Consuelos already plays the the role of Hiram Lodge, and now Ripa will plays his mistress, Mrs. Mulwray.

Kelly shared the inspired-casting choice on Instagram relating: “It’s a family affair …23 years of auditioning for a role i was born to play. Coming soon to the CW;s Riverdale.”’

The CW released a statement on the casting of Ripa, adding: “Kelly Ripa will guest star on Riverdale as Mrs. Mulwray. Confident and tough, she is Hiram Lodge’s alleged mistress. She’s a beautiful, icy, femme fatale who gets caught up in a conspiracy that’s much bigger than she initially realized.”

Film buffs take note!  Ripa’s character name is borrowed from Faye Dunaway’s Oscar-nominated role in Chinatown (1974), Evelyn Mulwray.   Those who saw Chinatown know that Evelyn was a femme fatale as well caught up in a conspiracy!
