Devious Maids likewise senses corny largely as the cast tends to overact. Theres plenty of gaping teeth and harden gazes, what with day soap opera double Susan Lucci joining the cast like a divorcee trying to find her seventh man. The thing the show has choosing it (although in no way ought to be seen as a redeeming quality) is top female Ortiz who manages to pull-off playing a remarkable role following her stint in Ugly Betty as Bettys nosy sister, Hilda. With Desperate Housewives but its tough never to perhaps, its unfair to opening Devious Maids. In the end, they are both from the same creator. I envisioned another Desperate Housewives but even if it fell short, in the very least, I be prepared to see something having an a bit more heart.
