I was shocked, and I used to be a stripper.
|Didi Miller, "Proof"|
Didi Miller is a supporting character on Devious Maids. As the gorgeous and glamorous young wife to Kenneth Miller, one wouldn't be entirely wrong to assume that Didi is a gold-digger... but her feelings run deeper than the bounds of her husband's wallet, for behind her painted exterior there is a caring woman who genuinely longs for the days where she and Kenny can be happy again. This certainly seemed far-fetched following his stroke, coupled with Didi's constant fighting with her stepdaughter Lucinda, but luckily this broken family was put back together following the arrival of their new maid.
Didi was once a stripper who went by the alias Ambrosia. She was also arrested for drug possession, because the cops caught her with ecstasy. One day, she met Kenneth Miller and fell in love with him. They were married, and since then she has had a terrible relationship with her stepdaughter, Lucinda. Two years later, Kenneth eventually had a stroke and Didi and Lucinda have to take care of him. ("The Dark at the Top of the Stairs")
