Megan Hauserman is ready to move on, following the cancellation of her VH1 reality show Megan Wants a Millionaire. The show was cancelled after the apparent suicide of one of her potential suitors on the show, who was named as the main suspect in a gruesome murder.
“It’s been a very challenging time,” she told PEOPLE in Las Vegas Friday while hosting a party at The Playground. “I’m happy to move forward at this point. It’s been a very upsetting, sad, tragic situation that nobody could have expected.”
Ryan Jenkins, a crazy slick-talking real estate developer, was the focus of an international manhunt that ended when he was found dead in a Canadian hotel room. Ryan was suspected of killing his wife, bikini model Jasmine Fiore, then stuffing her mutilated body in a suitcase.
Megan, who has starred in five reality shows, says she’s is currently working with animal rescue charities, traveling and hanging with her friends to move on from the terrible events of the past month.
Megan is also rumored to be getting a new reality show though she is not speaking about it.
“I really enjoy being on TV and I love my fans,” she says. “I want to continue doing TV work.”
It seems Megan Hauserman of VH1’s “Megan Wants a Millionaire” will be getting a second shot at a reality show since the abrupt cancellation of MWAM. One of the contestants- Ryan Jenkins— was the main suspect accused of murdering his wife before later committing suicide.
According to RadarOnline, VH1 has decided to give her another shot, though the new show will follow a different format moving away from the dating themed show. The new show will be unscripted even though Megan has requested a scripted show.
“VH1 is giving Megan her own reality show,” a source confirms. When the show was abruptly cancelled “they promised Megan her own show…that’s how they bought her silence.”
Megan, who seems to be a magnet for controversy was the Charm School contestant who got into a fight with Sharon Osbourne.
It’s official, Megan Wants A Millionaire is now officially cancelled. VH1 had issued a statement saying the show was postponed, but an AP report said VH1 cancelled the show on Friday.
The same report also confirmed that suspected murderer, Ryan Jenkins, was a contestant on the yet to air I Love Money 3. A previous TMZ report said Ryan had told multiple friends he won ILM 3. A VH1 spokesman said no decision has been made on whether or not to run the show. Ryan is still on the run.
It’s safe to say ILM 3 will is likely done for, especially if Ryan is the winner as rumored. It would be nice for VH1 to let us know who the winner of Megan Wants A Millionaire is, as over a million fans including me, have invested some time into watching this show.
The winner is however rumored to be Tj Diab (Please highlight to see name).
UPDATE – TMZ is reporting Ryan was found dead in a Canadian hotel. He apparently hanged himself.
In light of recent controversy surrounding one of the contestants of Megan Wants A Millionaire, VH1 has decided to postpone all future airings of the show. The rumored winner of the show is below. Their full statement is –
“Ryan Jenkins was a contestant on ‘Megan Wants A Millionaire’, an outside production, produced and owned by 51 Minds, that is licensed to VH1. The show completed production at the end of March. Given the unfortunate circumstances, VH1 has postponed any future airings. This is a tragic situation and our thoughts go out to the victim’s family.”
The exact controversy involves MWA contestant Ryan Jenkins being listed as a person of interest in the murder of his wife, Jasmine Fiore. Though he has yet to be charged, all signs point to him being the main suspect.
I’m a bit surprised VH1 is taking such a drastic measure considering Ryan’s alleged actions occurred after he filmed the show. VH1 has even gone as far as to remove information about the show from their website. I believe they are overreacting, as the guy is yet to be charged with a crime.
Plus Ryan is said to be a contestant on the yet to air, I Love Money 3, I wonder if they will yanking that off the air as well?
UPDATE – Megan Wants A Millionaire rumored winner below –
