"The Queen of Versailles" is a very good 2012 documentary that accomplishes the seemingly impossible by making you actually feel sorry for a couple of billionaires who are trying to build the largest and most expensive single-family house in the United States. (Not because their money runs out during the recession—more because of the underlying reasons why they wanted to do that in the first place.) Now, three years later, David Siegel's timeshare business has picked back up ("Phew!" —everybody) and his wife Jackie has announced that they will indeed finish the house, hopefully by 2017. It might take longer, though, because, as she explains to Yahoo!'s The Insider, "I forgot my hair salon."
