Devious Maids‘ Carmen Luna can barely be bothered to wipe down a kitchen countertop, so who exactly would entrust her with taking care of a toddler?
In an exclusive preview video from Sunday’s episode (10/9c on Lifetime), we get the answer to that question, as Roselyn Sanchez’s alter-ego — who’s been taking it easy while Spence is in rehab — answers his door to find his smiling little son. Even scarier, no one thought to bring a “cage” in which she can contain him. »
Not every tabletop smudge can be erased with a splash of Windex and a couple of paper towels — a lesson learned the hard way by Carmen (Roselyn Sanchez) in the following exclusive clip from tonight’s episode of Devious Maids (10/9c on Lifetime).

Indeed, just because Carmen has stopped enabling Spence’s (Grant Show) drinking problem doesn’t mean the dashing soap star’s battle with the bottle is over. And that translates to an increased workload for the flighty housekeeper — in more ways that one.

Stars heated up the red carpet—literally—at the Bank United Center in Miami, Florida Thursday night for the 2014 Latin Billboard Music Awards. Let's start off with the fashion hits and then we'll get to a few of red carpet misses. The bright spots: Roselyn Sanchez looked so fresh in a white, curve-hugging gown with open shoulders. Our award for best dressed guy goes to singer and actor Deigo Boneta, who looked fun and different in a royal blue suit. We've also got to hand it to Lena Burke, who looked glitzy in her sparkly dress, without going over-the-top. Now…speaking of over-the-top: Adassa. The singer made our worst dressed list for her underwear-baring corset with wizard »
Welcome to Miami! The stars came in droves to the Bank United Center in Miami, Florida Thursday night to celebrate the 2014 Latin Billboard Music Awards. The industry's biggest stars and supporters stepped out in their red carpet best, including singer Sean Paul, who looked smartly suited in a gray blazer—which may sound conservative for Sean Paul—but true to form, he kept his look interesting with an intense mohawk. Then there was actress and singer Roselyn Sanchez, who arrived wearing her hair slicked back, looking gorgeous in a white, shoulder-baring gown. Singer and actor Diego Boneta brightened up the red carpet in a royal blue suit, proving that guys can work color on »

Devious Maids probably isn’t an especially surprising show, if you know that it comes to you from the creator of Desperate Housewives, but even in comparison to that effort, it’s a certain kind of forward move. Desperate Housewives started off aiming for what we’ve actually achieved with Devious Maids, but it wasn’t quite there, and it didn’t take long for it to turn down a less interesting road.
The guilty pleasure genre is a tricky one, especially if you want people to help spread the word by admitting they watch your show, and there is a razor thin line separating worthwhile efforts from shows that are calling their own audiences stupid. Worse, virtually every aspect of creating the story you’re after is trying desperately to shove you over that line.
With shows like Scandal, or Grey’s Anatomy post-1st season, it’s easy »

When I began covering Lifetime’s new soap Devious Maids last year, I was every bit the open-minded – albeit conflicted – journalist. The internal debate I was having about the show – about five Hispanic maids – went something like: “Well, there’ll finally be a television show with a primarily Latina cast!” Followed by, “But they’re all maids.” A slew of thoughts ensued, all along the lines of “We Latinas are more than maids – we’re doctors, engineers, bankers and more,” and then “maids are people too and that’s how many immigrants earn their start in this country.”
It went on like that, »

The ladies of Lifetime’s hit series Devious Maids are back – and by the looks of a new poster for season 2, with plenty of oh-so-juicy secrets.
The cast – Latina actresses Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramirez, Roselyn Sanchez, Edy Ganem and Judy Reyes – are pictured striking a pose in slinky white outfits with letters spelling out the word “secrets.” And it looks like those secrets may require some intense damage control, as the tag “Deliciously Dirty” hints there’s going to be some serious cleaning up – and cleaning house – this season.
The poster will be released nationwide on March 17, and the season »

The National Geographic Channel announced today it is no longer moving forward with a scripted TV series based on the 2012 action film Act of Valor. Here's what the network had to say in a brief statement.
"Ngc is unfortunately not moving forward with Act of Valor in favor of other scripted projects we have under consideration that will be announced soon."
The series was first announced in September 2012, when Relativity Media and the Bandito Brothers production company revealed they were developing the movie for the small screen. National Geographic Channel gave the series a green light in October, although creative differences reportedly arose between Relativity and the Bandito Brothers.
The network had a formalized deal in place with Relativity, but the studio had no formal agreement with the Bandito Brothers. In the months that followed, the network, studio and production company all had differing ideas of how the show should be crafted. »
