In a word, pathetic. You don't know whether to feel sorry for them or say good for them. Maybe it's somewhere in between. The father is old school, work ethic delusional. I understand fighting for what is yours, what you have built, but come on. Things are falling down around them, or so it seems or maybe they are not as bad off as they present themselves to be. Nothing seems to make the father happy. Initially it looks like it's because he is stressed with keeping the time share business going, but when you look deeper, if everything had panned out successfully, he would still be a dull ,detached piece of cardboard, not relating to his family, There are a bunch of kids, that just get stuff because they want it. There is no sense of caring for anything, putting things away, or accountability, I believe this is the greatest tragedy of both the mother and father raising these children. What a void, what space cadets for parents. The kids have 'things' for no apparent real desire other than it's something that passed their brains and lips and they got it. How sad is that? Jackie is as fake as the the breast implants she flaunts in the camera every chance she gets with that strange posture. Talk about someone forgetting her roots? She could have used the limitations of her upbringing, to pass on to her children, teaching them basic about valuing life, but instead she mothered them into a make believe life of false existence because it so called looked and sounded good. Another void to add to the cloud like existence of the a family. Add the other factors: the servants who abandoned their own children and families to take care the vapor family is a travesty. And to top it off, picking up dog droppings, stale food, garbage and disarray all over the place had to be the most disgusting job of a lifetime. Certainly for an ungrateful family of empty, compassionless un-empathetic people. They were pigs. It's good that they didn't get the new house, it would have just been more space to be a slob in. Aside from the stock market and housing crash of 2008, this family would have imploded because of the pretentious lifestyle they lived. It was like looking at trailer park trash with clothes on. If this financial demise didn't happen things would have been far worse than where this family eventually ended up. View at your own risk and mental assault!

The Queen of Versailles explores the lifesyles of the Siegal family as David Siegel's time share business goes from a huge success to a financial nightmare. The Siegels were living large with a huge mansion, nannies and servants, limos and even their own jet. When the financial crisis hits in 2008 it sends David's time share business into a tailspin. Learning to live a more frugal lifestyle proves difficult for the entire family. Essentially it could be called a rags to riches to rags story.
