Gina Gershon Goes Donatella for House of Versace

This is so not the Maya Rudolph version. Gina Gershon plays uberdiva fashionista Donatella Versace in Lifetime's House of Versace (Saturday, Oct. 5, 8/7c), a bio-flick packed with high fashion and epic tragedy. The film kicks off in 1996 in Milan with Donatella serving as creative muse to her brother, superstar designer Gianni Versace (Enrico Colantoni). When Gianni is slain by a serial killer, Donatella is forced to take his place as head couturier to keep the company afloat. All that grief and pressure soon has her strung out on booze and cocaine, and profits slide 60 percent. Cue the family intervention and a forced stint in rehab. TV Guide Magazine spoke with Gershon about the challenge of playing Donatella minus the Saturday Night Live shtick.

When I was a kid, I saw a ...

Question: When I was a kid, I saw a movie where some scientists are reduced to miniature size and injected into a person's bloodstream. While inside, one guy was attacked by a white blood cell and they ended up washing out through the person's eyeball. It wasn't Innerspace. If you could help it with the title I'd really appreciate it. Answer: That was no guy — that was Raquel Welch being attacked by  corpuscles! The movie is Fantastic Voyage (1966), and it's the clear inspiration for Innerspace (1987), except that Innerspace plays the idea of a miniature person trapped inside someone's body for laughs, while Fantastic Voyage is dead serious. The quintessentially '60s cast includes read more
