Now this seems like a fantastic role for soap icon, Susan Lucci! When we first read this we were grinning from ear to ear! Lucci has been cast in one of the co-starring and primo roles in Desperate Housewives, Marc Cherry’s new ABC primetime soap pilot Devious Maids!
According to Deadline.com, “Lucci will play one of the employers, Genevieve Delacourt, a beautiful, wealthy woman who is gently crazy. Having spent her adult life attracting one powerful man after another, she’s reduced to seducing the Armenian pool boy, and the vertiginous drop in her sexual status has left her — well, the word is nuts. Unused to having men walk past her as if she were as sexless as a mailbox, Genevieve is feeling suicidal. ”
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 and one of course now being La Lucci!
