The 2012 Sundance hit The Queen of Versailles is making its cable TV debut tonight at 9/8C on Bravo. The film follows billionaires Jackie and David Siegel as they embark upon the construction of the largest home in America (Ryan, Michael, and Fredrik would be proud, this home could be the combination of every listing from Season 1 of Million Dollar Listing New York combined). 

The couple made their fortune from their Westgate Resorts time-share business, and used the money to build a 90,000 square foot home modeled after the palace of Versailles in France. But when the economy crashed, tanking their business along with it, they were forced to put their plans -- and their dream home -- on hold. Basically Jackie was building a Real Housewives-worthy nest, and then the Siegels found themselves staring down the barrel of bankruptcy. So what we're saying is basically it's a must-watch.

Check out the trailer below, and tune in tonight to learn all about the rise and fall of the Siegel fortune.
