So, where do The Miz and Marsye live now?  

Last year, the stars of Miz & Mrs. revealed that they were leaving their glamorous lives in La La Land behind because of their lack of privacy. 

"Our house in Los Angeles — people knew where we lived,” the WWE star told The Wrap. "We were a stop at — you know those [tourist] places ‘See Stars Homes?’ They’d be driving past us taking pictures of our house everyday."

Not only did the wrestlers have to worry about people taking photos of their home — which they felt as an invasion of privacy — but their fame also presented a security issue. The  reality stars constantly worried about potential robberies. 

“It was a safety concern, more or less,” the Real World alum told the outlet. Adding, "[There] were attempted break-ins all the time.” Yikes, that's scary!

 What to know about where Miz and Maryse live now: 

The Miz and Marsye ventured to Austin, Texas; however, taking up residence in the dirty south was not their first choice. Talking with The Wrap, the reality stars revealed that Las Vegas initially peaked their interest, but ultimately decided on Austin because, according to Maryse, the city is "really clean, really fun."
