Did you watch House of Versace tonight on Lifetime? Do you feel like you spent the last two hours huffing peroxide fumes and saying “It’s hot! It’s sexy! It’s worrrrking!” to your cat while you made him tiny bias cut dresses out of tinfoil? No? ME NEITHER.

1. I do not envy Gina Gershon having to fill Maya Rudolph’s lace-front from the old Donatella sketches on SNL (which are annoyingly hard to find online, except for this).
