Kenneth Miller is one of the supporting characters on Devious Maids. He is the head of his household, but it is a hugely dysfunctional one to say the least, with his daughter Lucinda constantly butting heads with his young wife Didi, and the poor decisions of his past often coming back to haunt him. Perhaps it was karma that delved out his paralyzing stroke, but nonetheless his family was saved by the unsuspecting likes of Rosie Falta, his maid who not only pieced his life back together, reconciling the warring women, but also took it upon herself to take down his vengeful nephew Reggie.

Biography

Early Life

Kenneth was born in 1949. At a moment of his life, he married a woman and they had a daughter named Lucinda. Until the age of 6, Kenneth spanked his daughter. He told her if she was good, there would be no need to punish her. After that, Lucinda began doing all her chores, and stopped sassing back. When she was 15, she fell in love with a boy and she got pregnant. Kenneth was really angry and made her give the baby up for adoption. She doesn’t understand why her dad wouldn’t let her keep a baby. ("The Bad Seed", "Proof")

When Reggie's mother was going through hard times and needed money, his uncle Kenneth refused to help. Instead, he was spending his money on a fancy art work and living a life of luxury. Reggie grew resentment for Kenneth, but he never revealed it to anyone. Instead, he started planning revenge. ("Long Day's Journey Into Night")

Kenneth's wife eventually died, and Lucinda moved home to care for him. ("The Dark at the Top of the Stairs") In the year 2010, Lucinda's daughter, Natasha Jones visits Kenneth's home when Lucinda is not around. Natasha asks to see her mother, but Kenneth lies, saying that Lucinda wants nothing to do with Natasha. This saddens the girl and she leaves. ("Private Lives")

One night, Kenneth met a stripper named Didi and they fell in love and were married. Didi and Lucinda never got along, but were forced to care for Ken when he had a stroke. ("The Dark at the Top of the Stairs")
