'The Queen of Versailles' Jackie Siegel on the Opioid Epidemic in the U.S.
From an award-winning documentary to international fame, the Siegel family seemed to have it all. Jackie Siegel, known as the “Queen of Versailles,” and her family made international headlines for building their Florida mega-mansion with the hope that it would be the biggest house in the country.

In this interview, Jackie explains why she has made it her mission to speak out against the opioid crisis in America and how she plans on keeping the memory of her daughter alive.
