He's one of our fave actors, best known for playing Bunk in The Wire and lesser known for playing Rachel's dad in Suits.

That's why it pains us to say the actor has lost home, 11 years after he lost his childhood home due to Hurrikane Katrina.

Wendell revealed the news on Twitter, saying that the generous response reminded him off when he lost his parent's home more than a decade ago.

The actor wrote on Twitter: "My neighbours & I have flooded in Baton Rouge. I am reminded of the generosity given to my family during Katrina. Now we will care for you."

We hope he can get back on track.

UH-OH!!

Hmm, we just can’t imagine this particular move going down well with the Jenner-Kardashian clan.

Tyga is clearly properly set-up in his girlfriend Kylie’s new €2.5m home. So much so, in fact, that he allegedly invited his ex, Blac Chyna, around for a tour of the 455sq metre, five-bed property.

Worryingly, Ms Jenner herself wasn’t there at the time, nor was she even aware that her boyfriend of close-to a year was being so hospitable.

Of course, the 17-year-old reality TV star is embroiled in an on-going spat with Ms Chyna – also Tyga’s former finacee and the mother of King Cairo, his two-and-a-half year old son.

HollywoodLife.com exclusively reports that the rapper was eager to get his ex’s seal-of-approval on the brand-new abode.

 “For weeks, Blac has been worried and nervous about King’s living arrangement at Kylie’s house,” a source told the website. “She’s his mother and she wants to protect him and demanded Tyga allow her inside the house to see what it was giving.”

The issue is, however, that Tyga, 25, didn’t ask his girlfriend's permission – and in an attempt to keep the peace, he didn’t tell her about the visit afterwards.

"After weeks of Tyga telling Blac ‘no’ and how disrespectful that would be to Kylie, he finally budged.

"He knew Kylie would be preoccupied," the source added, explaining that he waited until she wasn’t home to schedule the stopover.

Yikes!

Understandably, 27-year-old Blac also had a FIELD DAY criticising Ms Jenner’s style, taste and how the place has been done up.

And it seems Tyga knew at the time he was up to no good.

"Blac was there for about an hour – Tyga was sweating,” another source told HollywoodLife.com. “The last thing he wanted was for Kylie to walk in and see Blac in her house."

"It was a super low-key operation," the insider continues, explaining that when Blac arrived she pulled her car into the garage and entered Kylie’s home from there.

We await further developments eagerly, but we reckon Tyga didn't handle this particular situation very admirably.

If you need some pointers in how to make your days run a little smoother then allow us to help you! They say the key to success is organisation, and they may have been onto something, we hate to admit…

A little effort on a Sunday evening goes a long way in making your working/study week go a lot smoother.

1. Paperwork
As we enter adulthood, we accumulate more and more paperwork. Not only this but we take control of our own finances, insurance and medical issues. To make this a little easier, invest in some organising folders and keep everything together, rather than in a bundle under the TV.

2. Clothes
Picking out outfits in the morning can be one of life’s hardest decisions. You pick a skirt and then realise the only top that goes with it is in the wash so you’re back to the drawing board. On a Sunday, take a half an hour to open your closet and create five outfits. Place them together on a hanger each and hey presto – five outfits done for Monday to Friday. We think that deserves an extra ten minutes in bed, don’t you?!

3. Cleaning schedule
To keep your home looking and smelling clean and tidy, make a simple schedule that will ensure each room gets attention at least once a week.

4. Meals
Again, a little effort on a Sunday will go a long way for the week. By making a batch of granola or a large soup/stew, you can easily have breakfast and lunch or dinner set for the week. That way, you will only have one meal to prepare every day. Relief! If you’re really dedicated on the rest day, you could get it all done…The freezer is your friend! 

5. Diaries and calendars
If you are the type of person who forgets what day you are meant to meet your friend and accidentally make other plans – this is for you. Hang a calendar in your kitchen and circle days you have plans and what they are. Equally, keep a diary and make lots of lists of things that need to be done each day. Even if you don't have a busy schedule. nothing quite beats looking at a completed list at the end of a day! Even if it just says "Eat Oreos"…

What is it about going home that makes us regress back to our teenage years? 

Suddenly, we find ourselves to be an overgrown version of our once whiny, hormonal selves…

Here are some things you may find happening when you head home for weekends…

1. You run to the fridge to hide all the nice stuff from your siblings
They’ll never check the veg drawer

2. You go to your room only to realise your mom is slowly but surely turning it into something else
What is this, a gym? A sewing room? A dressing room? You can’t quite tell yet

3. You say you’re going to hit the local pub(s) but end up watching The Late Late with your parents
“Ah, I’ll just see who he has on next and go then”

4. You have a massive fight with your brother/sister
He ate all the food in the whole house/you found your favourite jumper in her bag

5. You try to think of a good excuse not to go to mass
“I’m a Buddhist now, sorry Maw”

6. You have the BEST breakfast of all time complete with black AND white pudding, rashers, sausages and eggs
Heaven

7. You curse ONCE and you mom demands to know “what kind of people you’re hanging around with these days”
The worst kind

8. Finally, you’re glad to be leaving – but you’re still looking forward to heading home next week
Aww

It sounds as if there are babies on the horizon for Professor Green and his wife Millie Mackintosh!

It wasn’t too long ago that Millie Mackintosh said that babies were not something she and husband of one year, Professor Green, had started to think about yet, saying: “I’m just so busy at the moment and the house is like our baby, our project. I have so many things going on at the moment work-wise.

However, the rapper must have other things on his mind as he reveals they plan to start a family soon: “Soon we’re going to start our family. Well, not quite yet, but it won’t be too far off hopefully.”

Now that the couple’s dream home is very nearly finished it seems they have started to think about the next step – what an exciting time!

Millie has been hard at work making decisions about their new home, from floors and colours to everything in between – we bet it's going to be beautiful!

Alexis Knapp, who stars alongside Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson in Pitch Perfect has had her home destroyed following fire yesterday.

Alexis also mum to a three-year-old daughter, Kailani, with fellow actor, Ryan Philippe.

Thankfully, Alexis and her daughter were not home at the time but one firefighter has been left injured. TMZ report that it required 30 fire trucks and 75 firefighters to help put the fire out.

The blaze allegedly began after Alexis left her home but forgot to put out a lighting candle.

The building is now registered as inhabitable until further notice.  

This is so frightening and just another reason why it is so important to put candles out before leaving our home or going to bed at night.

Actress Melora Rivera is recovering following a terrifying ordeal at her home in LA on Wednesday.

Melora, who had a minor role in the 2012 movie, Sparkle, alongside Jordin Sparks and Whitney Houston, was forced to hide out on her roof when an intruder broke into her home.

The 29-year-old intruder, later identified as Christian Hicks, a mentally unwell man, also appeared on the roof behind where the actress was hiding.

Thankfully, police arrived before the man could get any closer to Melora. She was then helped down off the roof while Christian was led away in handcuffs. 

Melora later said that more needs to be done to stop this from happening again: “I think it’s very obvious for most of us who live around here, when someone seems to be suffering from a mental illness and to continue to let these people walk around without offering them assistance, to protect them and us. That, I think, is the heart of the problem.”

What a scary thing to happen – hopefully it won’t take Melora too long to feel comfortable in her own home again.

The house is situated in Mark’s native Essex and the couple have begun to move their things in.

If you have a pet, or are planning on getting a pet, there are a few things you might want to think about. It’s especially important to make sure that your home a safe place for them – and also so that they don’t destroy everything within reach. Here are five tips on pet proofing your home:

Wooden floors
If you have a carpet, and plan on letting your dog or cat inside – good luck. You’re lovely rug will soon become a mass of animal hair, bits of food, and quite possibly urine. If you can afford it, get a wooden or lino floor. If not, invest in some mats you don’t care about – they may not be pretty, but at least you can take them up when people visit and still have a clean carpet underneath.

Scratching post
Cats need to sharpen their claws, and if they’re mostly inside they’re going to do it on your sofa, if you don’t give them an alternative. A scratching post is definitely worth it.

Hide the valuables
Dogs are known to eat things they really shouldn’t eat, and cats jump all over everything and knock things down. If you have things that are really precious, hide them. Hide them FAR away.

Child proof
They may not have opposable thumps, but this doesn’t always stop pets from breaking into presses and drawers. It’s a good idea to lock any presses that have poisonous substances, just incase.

Safety checks
Cats hang out in the weirdest places – always keep your washing machine closed, and check he’s not taking a nap in there before turning it on. Shut the door behind the dog when the pizza delivery guy comes, so he doesn’t bolt out and down the road. Don’t leave any low hanging cords (such as venetian blind cords) hanging down for your pet to get caught up in either. These kind of safety checks will make sure you have your new best friend around for many years to come.

Living an environmentally friendly, economically savvy, safe, happy and stress free life isn’t as easy as we’d like. These people however, have designed homes for themselves that make this kind of life, slightly more achievable. Check out five of the smartest homes ever created:

The Recycled Home
When design student, Lynda Elayna Spratley got tired of her long commute to college, she decided to move into a parking garage behind her college. She became one of the first residents of SCADpad, a three-dorm compound built and styled by the students and staff of Savannah College of Art and Design to prove that underused public spaces can recycled, if you will, into homes.

The Disaster Proof Home
The Archie family were left pretty much homeless when their house was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. However, with the help of the Make It Right Foundation, they now live in a disaster proof home. With reinforced walls, it can withstand winds of up to 209 km/h, there are hurricane shutters that can be screwed on to protect the doors and windows; and the whole base is bolted to 8 feet of concrete-and-steel stilts, which protect the house from flooding. Pretty impressive!

2

The Tiny Home
When Macy Miller fell into financial trouble during her divorce, and had to sell the house she had shared with her husband, she decided enough was enough, and built a teeny tiny, but perfectly formed little house. For $11,000. Her expenses have halfed, and since her house is built on a trailer, she can easily move if she needs to. Perfect!

The Responsive Home
When retired Marine Sergeant John Peck woke up from a coma with no limbs, he had a lot of challenges ahead of him. He wouldn’t be able to open doors, and he couldn’t even reach the presses to get food, let along eat it. To combat some of his issues, Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation designed a home to suit his needs. He can now adjust lighting and height of his kitchen cabinets with the touch of a tablet, and he has a bidet so he can use the toilet by himself.

The Mindful Home
Hilda Brunwasser has Parkinson’s disease, but she couldn’t afford home help. So instead she installed Lively, a system of sensors attached to her pillbox, key chain and more that alert her loved ones to irregularities in her schedule. Her son no longer worries as much his mam being home alone, the perfect solution!
