Where We Left Off and What’s Next on Devious Maids

Lifetime's hit Devious Maids is just going into its second season, but does the juicy prime-time drama already have to worry about a name change? After all, when the series returns for Season 2 on Sunday (10/9c), not one, but two of the women will have packed their feather dusters (seemingly) for good. "We worry about that all the time and you will understand just how worried we are as the season progresses," executive producer Sabrina Wind tells with a laugh. "Let's just say maybe not everybody keeps their role." So what else is coming up for Marisol, Carmen, Rosie, Zoila and their employers in 90210 this year? Read on to find more

Keck's Exclusives: Devious Maids' Devious Amputee

Following last season's amputation of Dr. Arizona Robbins's leg on Grey's Anatomy, characters with missing limbs will be introduced on three of Fox's upcoming series: the futuristic drama Almost Human, the military sitcom Enlisted and the thriller Sleepy Hollow (there's a headless horseman, remember?). 

But Lifetime's Devious Maids gets a leg up on the competition with its militant one-legged Russian house manager, Odessa Burakov (Mad Men's Melinda Page Hamilton). "I played [the real Don Draper's widow] Anna Draper, who had a pronounced limp from polio," Hamilton says. "But this is my first time as a character with a prosthetic leg."

Meet the Domestic Divas of Lifetime's Devious Maids

Washing the windows is no concern when scrubbing bloody floors and covering up illicit affairs are part of your professional duties. Such filthy tasks are all in a day's work for Beverly Hills cleaning ladies Carmen, Marisol, Valentina, Rosie and Zoila. It's enough to turn anyone a little...devious.

Inspired by the hit Mexican telenovela The Disorderly Maids of the Neighborhood, the new Lifetime sudser Devious Maids was adapted for American audiences by Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry and features the same wickedly over-the-top tone. "But there are subtle differences," Cherry explains. "Devious Maids deals with themes of racism, classism and immigration. These women all work in the homes of rich people, but they have goals and dreams that are much greater than the people they work for realize."

The drama begins with the death of a mischievous maid named more

True Blood Episode Recap: "Whatever I Am, You Made Me"

Just two weeks after I praised True Blood for keeping the focus on vampires, I'm starting to think that I spoke too soon. This week, two story lines of seasons past — Lafayette's brujo powers and those damned faeries — reared their ugly heads, making me think that Season 5 is going to be just as crowded an affair as the previous three have been. Let's survey the damage:
