The reality series starts its 10th season at 9 p.m. Aug. 17 but no date for the Versailles episode was announced.
Star Jeff Lewis agrees to help with the interior of the Windermere mansion, owned by the Westgate Resorts founder and his wife.
Construction on the house started in 2004, and the home gained national attention through the 2012 documentary “The Queen of Versailles.”
Versailles’ exterior is finished, and the interior is roughly halfway complete, family friend Robin Wright said Friday. Being featured on “Flipping Out” doesn’t mean Versailles is for sale, she added.
“The show was giving them professional advice on interior decoration to finish the palace, where they are going to spend Christmas 2018,” Wright said. “They are aiming for a year to finish. It is moving forward so quickly. They are going to plan a huge charity gala for Victoria’s Voice Foundation as the grand opening of Versailles, which in itself will take a year to plan.”
The foundation works to save lives and honors the Siegels’ daughter, Victoria. She died of a drug overdose in June 2015 at age 18.
The foundation’s website says: “Our singular mission is saving lives so we don’t lose our future generation to drug abuse and addiction.”
In the Emmy-nominated “Flipping Out,” Los Angeles designer Lewis has focused on renovating and reselling homes as well as home decoration.
Wright said the Siegels hope “Flipping Out” will return to film more episodes because Versailles is such a big project.
A scene from the “Flipping Out” trailer shows Jackie Siegel describing the home as “pretty much a clean slate or an empty canvas.” She says the home is three levels and has two elevators, one of them gold.
But the trailer mostly focuses on Lewis, life partner Gage Edward and the birth of their daughter.
