Frankie Muniz is having a terrible week.

After traveling to France for a funeral, the Malcolm in the Middle actor returned home to find most of his 5-story brownstone flooded because of an incident involving his cat. His feline friend accidentally turned on a sink — and the destruction was real.


Needless to say, it’s been rough. “I’ve cried more yesterday and today [than in] my whole life combined,” he said.


Muniz, who is co-hosting Dancing With the Stars Juniors these days in addition to other gigs, said his girlfriend, Paige Price, is helping him through this terrible time.


And she posted a video from their home, reporting the scale of the work that has to be done.

Muniz said the destruction is overwhelming.


As if all that weren’t enough, on Saturday morning, Muniz shared that they’re staying in a hotel where the fire alarm went off during the night.


The former child star appeared on Dancing With the Stars in 2017 and opened up about his health issues. They stemmed from a serious car crash in 2009 when he was competing as a pro race car driver, and they led to memory loss. He has said he doesn’t really have memories of being on the hit show Malcolm in the Middle, which made him a star.

It’s been a rough week for celebrity homes in general. The wildfires in California led to many celebrities — Miley Cyrus, Robin Thicke and Camille Grammer included — having their homes burned to the ground.
