You've seen me in action. I'm a nightmare, right?
Peri Westmore, "Walking the Dog"

Peri Westmore is one of the main characters of Devious Maids. A wretched woman who cares about no one but herself, Peri got to where she did in life on the back of a great tragedy. Having everything wasn't enough for her though, which is exactly what drove her husband into the arms of their maid. Hurt and humiliated by this, Peri spent years exacting revenge in more ways than one, from destroying his public image to preventing him from seeing their son, even going as far as to try brainwashing him. Despite countless devious acts against her husband, and others, her ultimate demise was actually delivered at the helm of her wanting to do something good, and protect girls who have suffered like she has.


Early Life

I came over one day and found her in tears. Some guy had drugged her and had his way with her... Nine months later, Tucker was born.
Shannon Greene, "I Saw the Shine"
Peri & Spence EL 106
Peri and Spence's wedding photos. ("Walking the Dog")

As a child, Peri's father would drink constantly, leading to problems growing up. ("Hanging the Drapes") Her relationship with her older sister, Shannon, was also very strained, for Shannon was always envious of Peri's talent, and being stuck in her shadow as a result. ("War and Grease") During her sophomore year of college, Peri had a roommate by the name of Tamar who would snore loudly; however, she was unable to say anything about this since it would make her look bad, with Tamar being in a wheelchair. ("Grime and Punishment") Peri eventually starts to build a career as an actress where she goes on to marry soap opera star, Spence Westmore; however, she one day encounters Hugh Metzger, a famous director. Over the course of their meeting, Hugh drugs and rapes Peri, something she only reveals to Shannon who stops by later in the day. Peri finds herself pregnant with Hugh's child, who she decides to pass off as Spence's, but the fear of Spence finding out the truth starts to get to her and she decides that she must come clean. In an effort to keep Peri quiet though, Hugh's daughter, Gail Fleming, visits and promises that her father will make her a big star if she keeps quiet. Peri agrees. ("I Saw the Shine", "Grime and Punishment")

Peri's acting career starts to truly take off, as she goes on to star in a total of three movies; however, two of them involve her character battling aliens and all of them feature her being topless. Peri eventually forms a rivalry with Showbiz L.A. journalist, Brenda Colfax, who insulted her dress when walking across the red carpet at the Oscars. ("Pilot", "Minding the Baby") Over time, Peri's marriage to Spence starts to deteriorate, especially when she starts to believe that her husband is a bad actor, thus meaning she could not respect him. ("Making Your Bed") Often times whenever Peri becomes upset with Spence she pays $3,000 for Yang Li jackets, charging them to him; she winds up with a lot of them. ("Betrayal") It also becomes a known fact that Peri was not easy to work with, as she and Spence go through multiple maids in a short period of time; she is even branded a "bitch" in five different languages. ("Setting the Table") Eventually, the Westmore couple hire Rosie Falta, a widowed Mexican from Guadalajara, who becomes their live-in maid. As Peri and Spence go on with their busy lives, Rosie becomes the primary caretaker of Tucker, while also working on getting her own son to America. ("Pilot")

Tucker refuses to address Peri as 'mama'. ("Pilot")

Peri has breakfast with her husband and son, Spence and Tucker, one morning, when asked by the family's maid, Rosie for the day off so she may meet with a lawyer who can help bring her own son to America. However, Peri, who has a scheduled day ahead, refuses, which also results in an argument between her and Spence; the latter believes his wife simply does not wish to spend time with their son, and the two also mock each other's careers. Later on, Peri walks in on Rosie in tears, having just ended a phone call with her son. She doesn't know what exactly to make up this, but tries to comfort her a bit. She doesn't go too far though, as she needs to leave for a facial, and she simply came to ask Rosie to care for Tucker. The following day, when Showbiz L.A. arrives to interview Peri, Rosie sees this as her opportunity for revenge against her boss. When speaking with journalist Brenda Colfax, Peri states that she plans to bring Tucker to Rome with her when filming her next film, stating that some mothers may be able to leave for another country without their child, but she could not. This being the last straw, Rosie decides to interrupt the interview, bringing Tucker with her, stating that the baby called her "mama". This humiliates Peri, who ends up giving Rosie the next day off to see her lawyer, while she herself tries to convince her son to talk to her. ("Pilot")

Peri 102
Rosie discovers Peri's affair. ("Setting the Table")

When Spence finds a pair of men's briefs under his bed that do not belong to him, he starts to believe Peri is having an affair. The couple go to Rosie, and Spence asks if she's ever seen the underwear before, and despite having not, she lies for Peri and says she has. However, Rosie confronts her boss about this later on, who goes as far as swearing on the life of her own child that she didn't have an affair, but that she and her co-star decided to run lines in the pool and that he must have forgot his underwear when going home; Rosie chooses to believe this. However, later on, Rosie decides to leave for the store and take Tucker with her, but when pulling out of the driveway, she sees a yellow sports car pull in, so she turns around and goes back where she finds Peri and her costar, Cody, having sex. She discusses this with her friends, as she is considering telling Spence, but Marisol believes it may be a bad idea. She chooses to ignore this at first, but after a heartfelt conversation with Spence, she decides it's best she didn't. ("Setting the Table")

Peri 103
Peri refuses to give in to extortion. ("Wiping Away the Past")

One morning, Rosie checks the mail at the Westmore home where she receives a letter from the lawyer who was hired to help bring her son to America. The lawyer apparently needs Rosie to file more papers, which is much more than she can afford, so she goes to Peri about this, who clearly does not care. She simply asks that Rosie not ask for a loan before she has even had breakfast, but the maid states that she wouldn't if she weren't so desperate. She goes on to say that she thought Peri would be much more considerate with all Rosie has done for her lately, but Peri sees this as Rosie attempting to blackmail her with her affair. She begins screaming at the maid, stating that she'll get a divorce before giving into extortion. Spence hears shouting, so he hurries to see what all the commotion was about. Peri simply states that Rosie asked for a loan and she refused; Rosie drops the conversation from there. Later on though, Spence gives Rosie a check as a way of apologizing for Peri's behavior; however, when they hug, Rosie feels an erection. ("Wiping Away the Past")

Peri 104
Peri confesses to her friend that she has no respect for Spence as an actor. ("Making Your Bed")

Rosie is left to care for Tucker while Peri and Spence attend the premiere of Peri's movie. Again, Rosie is caught up in the middle of the couple's fighting, and to get the two to stop, she takes away Tucker's pacifier, causing him to cry. She asks Peri if she'd like to hold her son, but already upset enough as she is, she turns down the offer. The following morning, Rosie finds that Spence spent the night on the couch; the two talk about how badly they're each treated by Peri, but Rosie reveals that whenever Peri starts saying anything she doesn't like, she simply tunes her out and goes to her "happy place", which is thinking about Miguel the day he gets to America, and when she can finally hold him in her arms again. Later on, Rosie has lunch with her friends. Peri and Spence throw a charades party with some of their friends that Rosie works, where she sees Peri continually humiliate Spence. The last straw is drawn when Spence overhears Peri talking about her husband to her friend, Lois, and how he's a bad actor. He ends up going to find Rosie, where they go to the laundry room alone, and passionately kiss. ("Making Your Bed")

As Rosie waxes the kitchen floor, Peri enters, only to start slipping. After a few comments back and forth between her and Spence, she leaves, and Spence is left alone with Rosie. He goes to embrace her, but she pushes him away, having been feeling guilty about their kiss, and especially not wanting to do anything in front of Tucker. Spence insists though, and seeing that he isn't backing down, she ends up hitting him over the head with a frying pan. Peri returns, having heard the sound, and Rosie claims that he fell. That evening, Spence suggests to Peri that they have an open marriage, and seeing that this benefits her own ongoing affair, she accepts. However, after telling her lover, Cody, about this, he points out that this must mean Spence is already having an affair of his own. Peri goes to Rosie about this, wondering if there's been any signs, and demanding that if there has been then she must tell. Rosie covers from Spence, and that evening, she warns him about what Peri said, and about her affair. He decides he wants a divorce, but Rosie reminds him about Tucker and how he could lose custody. Spence argues that he needs a reason to wake up in the morning, and asks how he can possibly raise his son to be a man if he's constantly humiliated. He states that he needs a reason to wake up in the morning, something that makes him happy, and Rosie agrees. ("Taking Out the Trash")

Peri decides to save her marriage. ("Walking the Dog")

Due to her ongoing affair with Spence, Rosie begins to neglect her chores around the Westmore home, including picking up Peri's dry cleaning before an interview she is suppose to have, resulting in the actress not being able to wear the silk top she wanted. She comments on how little work Rosie has gotten done, and tells her to step it up, indirectly threatening her job as she does so. Rosie tries getting her work done later, but gives in and agrees to make love to Spence. While doing this, however, he ends up having a heart attack, thus leaving Rosie to call for an ambulance. At the hospital, Peri arrives, asking what happened, and Rosie lies, stating he was exercising. She is also refused by a doctor to visit Spence with Peri. That evening, Rosie finds Peri looking through her wedding album; she learns that after Spence's heart attack, Peri has started re-thinking things, and has decided to start attending therapy so she can work on herself and her marriage.

Peri and Spence share a moment. ("Hanging the Drapes")

Rosie serves Peri and Spence at dinner, but finds the two incapable of having a proper conversation. They bicker like normal; Peri states she just wants to work on their problems, even admitting herself to be a "raging bitch", and now just wants Spence to admit he's a "wuss". Wanting to lower the tension, Rosie questions the couple if either would like a slice of cake. The following day, Rosie runs into Adrian Powell in the grocery store parking lot, who tries to discretely persuade her to attend of of his parties and work as a prostitute for one of his friends. Rosie goes to Spence about this, who at first laughs it off, but after being compared to her first husband, Ernesto, and seeing how uncomfortable Adrian has made her feel, Spence decides something must be done about this. He eventually goes to Adrian's home where he confronts him, but when going to punch him in the face, he ends up slipping and hitting his head, getting a concussion. That evening, Peri questions what happened, and so he reveals that he was simply trying to defend Rosie, but that it backfired. This impresses Peri, who begins to think their marriage may be okay if he continues acting like this. She kisses him, and after a bit of hesitation, Spence kisses her back. Rosie sees this though, and is heartbroken by the sight she sees. ("Hanging the Drapes")

Rosie agrees to go check on him, but warns her boss she should probably start praying for forgiveness. When finding the jogger, Frank, still on the side of the road. She calls for an ambulance and he is rushed to the hospital. Peri later asks how he is doing, and Rosie tells Peri he is alright, and that she'll be visiting him frequently since he doesn't have any family. Peri appears grateful, but Rosie is enraged at how the entire situation was handled. She goes on about how bad of a person Peri really is, and that she, herself, no longer cares about her feelings anymore. She states that God will punish her for her sins, and he will use Rosie to do it. Once alone, Rosie calls Spence, wanting to be with him, as she no longer cares about what this means for Peri.

This shocks Rosie, but she is deeply grateful, going as far as hugging her boss. However, this leads her to feel guilty about accepting Spence's marriage proposal, as she is now having second thoughts about hurting Peri in such a way. She ends up giving Spence back his ring despite his attempts to bring Miguel to America a different way, such as marrying Rosie and adopting him. Spence tries bringing the topic back up later, but Rosie refuses to betray Peri now. Peri soon arrives home with Miguel, and the mother and son are finally able to reunite.

When alone, Spence goes to Rosie, offering to marry her and adopt Miguel, that way they can be a family and Peri can't hurt them. Rosie refuses though, believing it's not right for them to be together, and Spence admits that her commitment to being a good person is one of the reasons he loves her. The two exchange vows of love for one another while agreeing to end their affair, but with their luck, Miguel arrives to hand Rosie the phone with Peri on the other line, who has just heard the entire conversation between her husband and maid; she hangs up the phone, and is not happy.

  • Zebra print was Peri's favorite style of clothing. ("Sweeping with the Enemy")
  • When ABC originally turned down Devious Maids, Peri's actress Mariana Klaveno sought out and landed a leading role as "Lily Munster" in NBC's Mockingbird Lane, a reboot of the 1960s sitcom, The Munsters. However, when Devious Maids was eventually picked up by Lifetime, ABC Studios refused to let Klaveno out of her contract, despite the actress offering to serve in a recurring role for her character as a compromise. While Klaveno was forced to serve as series regular for the first season, her role in Mockingbird Lane was taken over by actress Portia de Rossi.[2]
  • In an early script for the series' premiere, Peri and Spence's surname was "Davis".[3]
  • Contrary to Mariana Klaveno, Peri does not bake, nor does she "know her way around a kitchen."[4]
  • It was decided at the start of planning the fourth season that Peri would be the character to be killed off. As much as the writers loved her, killing her solved a lot of story problems.[5]
  • Peri's maiden name is most likely "Greene", as it is her unmarried sister Shannon's surname; however, there is also the possibility that "Greene" simply serves as Shannon's stage name.[6]
  • Of the main characters, Peri has only formally met with Marisol, Rosie, Spence, and Jesse.
