You have to start somewhere and at least they are working and paying taxes.

Really, by starting at the bottom, as a subservient house cleaner, cleaning rich women's toilets, you think that's a good role to get........a maid.....really?

You start at the bottom and work your way up in every job

This whole thing is hilarious. If everyone is offended at anyone playing a maid, who will play the maids? The FACTS are in plain view. Go to any hotel, right now. If you can't deal with facts, I have nothing to say. Everyone can't be offended about every acting gig, otherwise no-one would play those roles. Can't you just be happy that someone is making money? This is a FREE COUNTRY, and it was THEIR CHOICE to take that acting position. Obviously, they think it's ok.

I'm excited for this. While I understand the concern with the premise, I feel like Marc Cherry won't be working under that convention for long.

I'm excited to see Judy Reese back on TV.

"classy"?
Yeah, and all of that class is very low and cheap.
Time to aim higher than a toilet rim for your role models, don't you think?

Hollywood producer to his "gofer"..."find me actresses to play cleaning women, and make them as realistic as you can. Whoever you find, make sure they're Latinas, everyone knows that all maids are Latinas. No one would ever accept an actress in such a roll that wasn't ethnically correct". That fellow readers is why this kind of stereotyping is so prevalent in Hollywood to this day.

Looks like ABC is lining themselves up for some hate from the right wing.

Yes it is all nice. You are all latinas and have a job in television. Portraying maids? and you are happy about that? Because it is reality? Yes it is the reality that all of the gringos see us as. What they do not know is the other side.... we are Registered Nurses, Lawyers and Doctors. How about that side. That is my reality. Show them what they do not know!

First fan. I'm not Latina. This does not feel right AT ALL!

Since we "gringos" still have the option of picking and choosing our nurses, lawyers and doctors, it is doubtful I will see any Mexican face to face these professions. Isn't GRINGO a slur to American white people? Can I pick and choose YOUR moniker? I have a few in mind.
03:40 PM on 04/10/2012
Gringo is not a pejorative, diminishing or offensive word. You can read about the origin of the word. I am married to a gringo whom is my everything. You do not need to be so defensive, but if you want, bring those words on. They will tell more about who you are as a person than who we are as latino (American).

She'll only be a maid for one episode before she replaces the bitter blonde wife.

Hey, at least she has the presence of mind to not attempt the role of an intelligent, insightful woman with integrity.

That's the best concept they can come up with for Latin women? Not doctors or Lawyers or Professors or Politicians....maids that's it? Yet some Latins on this board don't see how insulting that is to all Latin women never mind all Latins? Once again....."maids" are they serious?

No! No! and No! Latinas and Hispanics are not just maid in case you have not notice that is a really bad stereotyping of all Latin or Hispanic Women. I like to see more White Women playing maids!

Nobody is saying ALL latinas are maids, that'd be ridiculous. But most maids are latin american immigrants and that's the truth. Deal with it.
03:57 PM on 04/09/2012
so...... if that is a well known fact, why the need to reinforce such stereotype? That is not all we are. We are professional people, Doctors, Registered Nurses, Lawyers etc.

First of all I am an American who travels quite a bit and in my recent travels I have found that there are Haitian, Oriental, and Some White Maids. So why continue to feed the Stereotyping.
