Imagine that! Donatella Versace is not AT ALL happy that Lifetime is producing the TV movie House of Versace and would have NOTHING to do with it. In fact the Versaces made it very difficult by not allowing any access to their fashion archives and refusing to answer any attempt to contact them, according to Merle Ginsberg at The Hollywood Reporter. The story is about Donatella’s rise to power after the murder of her brother Gianni. She struggled with drug abuse, near bankruptcy and rehab, but survived and triumphed. Beautiful actress Gina Gershon (above left) had a huge makeover to play the rather scary Donatella and the designer should be flattered.

    For a start, you could spell her first name correctly.
    It’s Gina!

    Becca seems to be running for the JC Hall Monitor.

    ‘Tella could easily star in any horror movie she chooses.

    Donetella is one unattractive beast. I thought extreme wealth could buy beauty.

    I don’t blame her.
    Her brother and she were close, they worked together.
    He was shockingly murdered and it must still be difficult to think about.
    She has had her problems, and her only child has been ill.
    Who would want to see all their pain on TV?
    At some point we need to reject sensationalizing what happens in the lives of public fiures.

    And we need to get over the victim of everything excuse…..get over it and move on.

    But that’s my point. She has refused to speak publicly about her daughter and brother- either for sympathy or gain.
    That means leave it alone.

    I heard good reports and that it’s a campy feast for fashionistas.
