Examples of Donna in a Sentence

  1. Yvonne De Carlo:

    I ’d wanted a TV series, but this ? I was n’t sure. I had a hard time getting into the rhythm of it. Then director Joe Pevney suggested I play Lily Munster as a sort of mixed-up Donna Reed character and not overdo anything. When I saw the first pilot in a screening room I cringed at my makeup. But I never estimated it would become this cult thing. It took two hours of makeup to make me seem like that. It ran for two huge seasons, then CBS quarreled with the creators about reruns as we got canceled. A movie in color in 1966 [ ‘ Munster, Go Home ! ’ ] showed off everything in reds and greens on my face. Boy, was I ugly.

  2. Holly Marsh:

    Donna's offer was just so compelling and the fact that she offered 60 days of rent back for free, which is practically unheard of, and then the pizza part was just hilarious. It just goes to show they really did something to stand out among the offers.

  3. Donna DiNicola:

    I thought, well time is ticking and we've got to get into this market, donna's offer was just so compelling and the fact that she offered 60 days of rent back for free, which is practically unheard of.

  4. Tori Spelling:

    I heard about the show from my agent. She said, ‘Your dad is doing it.’ I was like, ‘I haven’t heard anything about it.’ I popped into his briefcase when he got home, and I was like, cool, i really wanted to play Andrea. I went in under a different name, then I got the part of Donna — which I’m sure had something to do with my dad.

  5. Peter Schweizer:

    You had Bill Clinton there, you had Hillary Clinton there. You had Donna Karan, the fashion designer. You had Ben Stiller. You had Sean Penn.
