Donatella Versace is looking crazy good all of a sudden! Oh wait, that’s Gina Gershon playing Donatella in a Lifetime movie, House of Versace, premiering October 5. Apparently Maya Rudolph was busy. But then, it’s not a comedy, despite the fact that most Lifetime programming is pretty laughable. Still, it looks like a step up from one of Gershon’s last major movie roles as Cristal in Showgirls.
The made-for-TV movie is based on author Deborah Hall’s book, House of Versace: The Untold Story of Genius, Murder and Survival, and stars Enrico Colantoni as Gianni Versace. More importantly, guess who plays their Aunt Lucia? Raquel Welch! Apparently Sophia Loren was busy.
