In The Help, a new movie which opened in theaters yesterday, actors Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer star as African American maids in Mississipi during the early 1960’s.

Here are 10 of our favorite Latina 'help' roles of all-time!
Shelley Morrison, Will & Grace (1999-2006)
One of the funniest things about NBC’s hit comedy Will & Grace, was the constant fighting between Karen Walker (Megan Mullaly) and her maid, Rosario Salazar (played brilliantly by Spanish actress, Shelley Morrison). Karen and Rosie would often engage in shouting matches, make fun of each other's outfits, and trade insults (like, "Lady, tonight you better sleep with one eye open!"), but at the end of the day, they really did love each other.
