Glee's Naya Rivera Joins Devious Maids

Naya Rivera Santana Lopez

Naya Rivera will soon tackle a role even more Devious than Santana Lopez.

The Glee vet has joined Season 3 of Lifetime’s sudser Devious Maids in a recurring role, our sister site Deadline reports.

Rivera will play Bianca, a new maid who lands a job with a seemingly perfect Beverly Hills family before discovering a terrible (and possibly life-changing) secret.

Per Deadline, the actress is also slated to guest co-host The View later this month, after a number of buzzy appearances on the morning talker.

Devious Maids Season 3 will debut later this year, while Glee is currently in the midst of its sixth and final season.

    That’s kind of perfect for her, no?

  2. sam says:

    Never heard of the show.

  3. Ian says:

    Its lovely to see so many of the stars Glee screwed over move on to better things.

    Go Naya.

      A recurring stint on a lifetime channel show no one watches full of horrible Latina stereotypes is better thing? Looool.

      • Tina says:

        No one watches Glee anymore. And glee is a epitome of bad stereotypes. And What’s better is that it has nothing to do with Ryan Murphy production.

        • Tai says:

          I have to agree. I haven’t watched Devious Maids but even the commercials look better than the past few seasons of Glee. I’m happy for her.

        • Overlie says:

          I mean it not being a Murphy production means it will never win any awards or be relevant. It has about the same viewership as that awful glee show with even worse Latina stereotypes thanks crazy hothead Santana ever was.

          • Tina says:

            Ryan Murphy productions always get terrible after the 4th season. I can’t believe what they did with AHS last season. I’ve leaned my lesson. I am avoiding all the shows with his name.

      • Just for some perspective here, the season 2 finale of Devious Maids had 2.23 million viewers. The season 5 season finale of Glee had 1.87 million viewers. Seems like she traded up.

        What horrible Latina stereotypes? All the characters are three ddimensional!

    Perfect move for a show so perfectly soapy…

  5. Alexis says:

    Well good for her. I hope that is a tell all book deal!

  6. Ram510 says:

    OH HELL NO!!!! This show doesn’t need that crazy girl on the set. She’s a cancer to any cast and crew

  7. Goldie says:

    Omg if it is a tell all book.

  8. Luca says:

    I’m so glad for her and for me.I get to see her again. I’ve never watched that show, I hope they don’t write like Glee

  9. Lkbryant says:

    Congrats to Naya! How exciting!

  10. Matty says:

    I really like her.

  11. Dude says:

    While she’s admittedly perfect for this…I was hoping to see her get her Jane the Virgin on!

  12. LEA says:


  13. Lizo says:

    Excellent casting! She’ll be a great addition!

  14. Juan says:

    I sipped watching glee in like season 3 (fell behind and never caught though I will lol) and she was my favorite no contest. She will be a great addition to these maid.

  15. Jared says:

    Best news ever!

  16. chuckiechk says:

    Been saying since The View returned in January that Rosie, Nicolle, Mario, & Naya were the perfect four to host the show. They got along, they were funny and had a lot of chemistry together

  17. Babygate says:

    Love it! Another reason to watch.

  18. Kay says:

    Perfect typecasting.

  19. MattySi says:

    This is awesome. It would be perfect if her character was able to become a regular! She is amazing on TV. This is perfect for her.

  20. MattySi says:

    It’s amazing how all these people are talking about how horrible Glee is and how bad things produced by Ryan Murphy are but Glee was once a huge phenomenon. It may not be anymore but it launched many careers of its stars.

  21. Olivia says:

    As much as I grew to despise Murphy over the years, Cherry is not exactly a trade up. That being said, Hollywood is a nasty hell hole where mixed people, regardless of their talent, can’t get roles easily. Especially women. So I’m happy that she has something lined up and I wish her well, even if it’s not my type of show. I hope she’ll get something better later.
    I’d personally LOVE to see her in a show like The Blacklist, Stalker or OITNB.

  22. Ali says:

    Congrats Naya. Maybe you have many more.

  23. Frankie says:

    Love her and look forward to seeing where her career goes

  24. Michael says:


  25. RoJo says:

    Awwwwwwww hell yesss!!! Used to love the show before but with this addition I’m sure it will become my fav!!

  26. Heartwing says:

    Devious Maids is a perfect fit for Naya! It’s about smart, beautiful Latinas… She should really enjoy herself. I can’t wait to watch her! I also can’t wait for her book! I wish she’d give us a hint on what it’s about tho! Congratulations Naya…we love youuuu!

  27. Barbara says:

    I think she would be amazing for the role since she is latina

  28. Barbara says:

    She’ll be amazing

  29. Brandy says:
