Lifetime's House of Versace aired last night, and it was excellent to see Gina Gershon in her old thematic stomping ground of playing a coked-up lady boss set on making everyone's lives miserable. Though critically savaged, I'd wager that Gershon's alternately groggy and raving portrayal of Donatella Versace (complete with a caricature of Donatella's rumbling, accented basso) will age about as well as her iconic turn in Showgirls as Cristal Connors.
If nothing else, House of Versace is a solid entry in the spiraling-women subgenre of camp. In the clip reel above, Gershon snorts, boozes, throws shoes, and breaks her champagne glass on a chandelier—that's her wake-up call, the luxe version of the straw that broke the camel's back.
Keep an eye out for the animatronic creation playing Raquel Welch playing Donatella's Aunt Lucia.
