Shirley Maclaine as Coco

BY Laurie in General

Super excited to see Shirley Maclaine in the Coco Chanel bio pic on Lifetime this weekend and luckily this will not interfere with my 10 oclock date with Don Draper (Madmen!). I just love, love, love Shirley, have you ever read any of her new age books like Out on a Limb, or Dancing in the Light? She is a real gem, and I'm sure she'll do a great job with Ms. ... Read More
