Fans of The Real Housewives of Potomac have seen cast member Monique Samuels’ nearly 12,000-square-foot Potomac mansion on television, but Samuels just gave the Washington Post a walk-through showing off the six-bedroom home — and massive shark tank.

Besides breaking down what it’s like to have a film crew in your house on the regular, Samuels explained her vision for the redesign she did for the interiors.

“I like everything that sparkles and blings,” Samuels told the Post, pointing to ceiling panels in the living room made with formica and crushed rock. That shark tank divides the kitchen and the dining room in the open floor plan. That’s not the only unusual detail. There’s a tub in the master bath carved from a giant boulder.

Check out the story to see how real estate pro Samuels (who is married to former Redskin Chris Samuels) and interior designer Chad Alan transformed the space.
