American Crime Story: Did Gianni Versace Meet Andrew Cunanan Before the Murder?

American Crime Story: Did Gianni Versace Meet Andrew Cunanan Before the Murder?

The first episode of American Crime Story Season 2, titled The Assassination of Gianni Versace, wastes no time in linking spree killer Andrew Cunanan with his final and most famous victim: Gianni Versace.

"The picture of Ricky Martin holding the body in his arms is ridiculous", he told the Observer newspaper last July. But the twist is that the story is told backwards, starting with the murder of Versace, and going backwards until, by the end of the season, we finally get a glimpse of Cuanan's first crimes, which started with his complicated relationship with his father.

As we have said, the Versace family has neither authorized nor had any involvement whatsoever in the forthcoming TV series about the death of Mr. Gianni Versace, which should only be considered as a work of fiction.

It would be unfair to say that Murphy's series, as written by Tom Rob Smith, is as empty as Cunanan comes off as in the first few episodes, but there is a certain feeling of coasting here.

Oscar victor, Penelope Cruz is set to star as Donatella Versace, a role that she recently said on Ellen took her a couple of months to fully master as she highly respects Donatella and as such needed to give it her best shot, plus she needed to nail and master her unique accent for the role (and also give her a call to get her verbal approval). Meanwhile, Orth's publisher, Random House, joined the fray, defending the book as "a carefully reported and extensively-sourced work of investigative journalism by an award-winning journalist with impeccable credentials".

Veracity is unlikely to stop the popularity of The Assassination of Gianni Versace in its tracks, however; like its predecessor, this season has collected a glittering cast of stars, clearly hoping to amp up the more glamorous aspects of the story. Versace (Édgar Ramírez) is seen going about his day, eating breakfast and going out to grab a newspaper.

De-Meyer was arrested in Los Angeles on Tuesday, according to a spokeswoman for the federal prosecutor's office in NY . Solomon has been collecting wine for decades, according to the person, and accumulated many investment-grade bottles.

Many were shocked to learn just how the murder of Versace went down. However, he feuded with Versace family members and walked away with a fraction of what Gianni had meant to leave him. Instead, in her effort to create a sensational story, she presents second-hand hearsay that is full of contradictions. "It's important for me that when she sees what I've done, she can feel the love and respect that I have put there", she said. In making her lurid claims, she ignores contrary information provided by members of Mr. Versace's family, who lived and worked closely with him and were in the best position to know the facts of his life.

"The Versace family will issue no further comment on the matter". On one hand rests Gianni, brilliant and bold, an artist coming into his own in the fashion industry as he spars, if lovingly, with his sister, Donatella (Penelope Cruz), over the direction of the company that bears their name.

"I tell people what they need to hear", he says, speaking to his sexuality on the surface while giving us fair warning about the skein of falsehoods he's wound leading up to this moment.

However, the executive producers for the show told me in an interview that they aren't as sure about the two men meeting, so they chose to frame the story from Andrew's point of view and let the viewers decide for themselves.
