The phrase “How does she do it?!” is said a lot in regards to “Devious Maids” and former “All My Children” star Susan Lucci (Genevieve Delatour, “DM;” ex-Erica Kane, “AMC”), who manages to make being in one’s 60s look youthful and glamorous. And the actress is sharing her secrets!
In a recent Huffington Post video interview, the New York native opened up about all of the things that make her thrive and look as fabulous as she does. Having a loving, supportive spouse like Helmut Huber helps, as does a simple daily drink, details of which she shares in the clips after the jump.
The leading women of Lifetime’s “Devious Maids” better have buckets upon buckets of cleaning supplies at the ready, because the series’ second season premieres this weekend, and it looks like the stories will be messier than ever!
Stars Ana Ortiz (Marisol), Dania Ramirez (Rosie), Roselyn Sanchez (Carmen) Edy Ganem (Valentina) and Judy Reyes (Zoila) return to the screen on Sunday, April 20 in an exciting pickup of last season: As viewers may recall, the finale ended with Marisol, Zoila, Rosie and Carmen exposing the murderer of another maid, Flora (Paula Garces)!
From being confused with “All My Children’s” Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane) to herself jokingly confusing co-star Dermot Mulroney with Dylan McDermott, former “As The World Turns” actress Martha Byrne (ex-Lily Snyder) took part in a Funny or Die spoof interview intended to promote her upcoming appearance on NBC’s “Crisis,” which tells the shocking fictional story of an ambushed Washington D.C. school bus carrying some of the nation’s most important people’s children. Byrne will play the recurring role of Marie Wirth, a mother of one of the kidnapped children, beginning with the Sunday, April 6 episode.
Melody Thomas Scott’s name has been making the rounds for a variety of things lately, but there’s one story in particular that the portrayer of the “The Young and the Restless’” Nikki Newman wants to set straight: The April 7 edition Globe article that claims she called Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane, “All My Children”) to trash talk the sudser’s executive producer, Jill Farren Phelps!
Rumors have been circling that Phelps has been trying to woo Lucci (who currently stars on Lifetime’s “Devious Maids”) to Genoa City, and somehow, Scott got dragged into the gossip. Consequently, the actress posted a message on her Facebook page, taking the tabloid to task for what she claims are outright lies. “Is it possible for the Globe to print an entire article with not ONE shred of truth to it? Well, they’ve done it,” she wrote. “In their April 7th edition, there is an entire page devoted to absolute lies. It refers to a phone call that I had with Susan Lucci, whom I don’t even know. Sure, over the years we have run into each other at events, ‘Hello, how are you,’ and that’s it. She does not have my phone number, nor I hers. Hey, Globe… There was no phone call!
