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.

Gina Gershon and Raquel Welch stars in this Lifetime Original Movie chronicling Donatella Versace's (Gershon) inspiring triumph over tragedy. Based on Wall Street Journal reporter Deborah Ball's widely-read book, the movie brings to light the story of Donatella, who, following the brazen murder of her brother, world-renowned designer Gianni Versace (Enrico Colantoni) at the height of his success, is suddenly thrust into the spotlight as head designer of his fashion empire. At first ridiculed by critics worldwide, Donatella falls victim to drug addiction and nearly bankrupts the company. With the help of her family, including daughter Allegra, Aunt Lucia (Welch) and brother Santo (Colm Feore), she enters rehab to confront her demons and soon comes back stronger than ever to re-ignite the beloved Versace brand with her own vision and builds one of the most powerful and influential fashion houses ever known.
