Gina Gershon as Donatella Versace
Lifetime has been hitting out of the ballpark with interesting subjects for their infamous Lifetime Movies. Last time OJ&B was excited about the Anna Nicole Movie and this time I am even more excited for the "House of Versace" starring Gina Gershon (yes, Crystal Connors from Showgirls) as the legendary Donatella Versace.
Gina does an amazing job conveying Donatella's sass and powerful presence in the preview that Lifetime released today. The accent is spot on and I love the her delivery of lines like "I AM VERSACE!" "If you wanna put me on a leash it better be diamond studded or you can kiss my ass!" and finally, "I was always crazy even before the drugs." All that was missing was the line made famous by Mya Rudolph from SNL's impression of Donatella, "GEEET OOOUUUT!"
Mya Rudolph dressed as Donatella next to Donatella herself.
Another thing that seems to come natural for Gershon is the on camera drug use that happens even in the trailer. She had plenty of practice making this look natural in "Showgirls." I wonder if "natural yet pretend on camera drug use" is something that she put on her resume. In fact, do other actors and actresses list that under skills? If she did list it she probably put it next to "can do deep and smokey Italian accents."
All jokes aside, I am excited to watch "House of Versace" on October 5th at 8PM EST on Lifetime. For now you can check out the official trailer below:
