Now, after news broke that Mark had sold the home after only a year, he is giving insight into what is really happening with his family's living situation.

Speaking with, he explained: "When we decided to move (to Las Vegas), we wanted to move before school started, so we moved into a temporary place," adding: "And we now moved into another place."

He continued: "The plan was always to build, not only a studio but a family home. We just moved from one house to another."

Mark, giving further insight into what his family's life looks like in Nevada, also told Today: "You have Las Vegas, and people think automatically, 'Oh, the Strip.' But (in) Nevada, there are wonderful communities."

Though he admitted: "I miss California, I miss the weather," he added: "But the kids are thriving (in Las Vegas)," and explained: "I live in a wonderful community that's really faith-based, great schools. There's much more to Las Vegas than the Strip."
