Art will start imitating life for the maids of Beverly Hills on the season four premiere of Devious Maids.
Marisol's book has been optioned for a movie version, but she is going to quickly learn that her story about going undercover as a maid so she could free her son from jail for Flora's murder, could be entirely different when things get underway with the filming, especially when two very high-ego actresses begin bickering on the set.
Portraying Flora is Eva Longoria (as herself), while Peri (Mariana Klaveno) returns to portray Evelyn (Rebecca Wisocky), and things quickly go wrong after Peri kicks Eva while shooting a scene. And after the director calls cut so he can get things back on track, Marisol will be left wondering why the story differs so much from the original.
"It's not exactly what I expected," she says in a preview clip for the Monday, June 6 episode. "In the book, Flora is stabbed and then thrown into the pool. Why did that change?"
"Peri felt like the audience was paying to see her, so her character should discover the body," she's told.
However, things only get more infuriating when she approaches both Eva and Peri, and realizes that neither one seems to have any respect for her despite the fact that they were both hired for a movie she helped create by writing her book.
"Oh, hi, are you taking the dinner order?" Peri asks her.
However, after she explains that she isn't there for that, she will also get a similar question from Eva. Then, Oeri will once again try to make creative changes to the story which suit her, forcing Marisol to try and put her foot down.
"I'm glad you're here. I was thinking, shouldn't I be the one who goes undercover as a maid? Wouldn't that be better?" She asks.
"No, no, this story isn't about you," Marisol replies. "It's about the maids. It's about Latina empowerment. Back me up here Eva."
However, Eva isn't much of a help, and before the day is over, Marisol will have to find herself a new Flora.
"If we change the race of the murdered maid, we can get somebody better than Eva," Peri says.
"Okay, that's it. I'm gone," Eva says before walking away.
Devious Maids airs Mondays at 9 p.m. on Lifetime.
