VH1 cancels series with murder suspect
No decision yet on second series featuring fugitiveBUENA PARK, Calif. (AP) - VH1 executives have cancelled "Megan Wants a Millionaire," the reality TV show that Ryan Alexander Jenkins appeared in before he was charged with murdering a former model.
VH1 spokesman Brett Henne confirmed that the show was cancelled Friday.
Previously the network had said the show, in which wealthy young men try to win over a materialistic blonde, was postponed.
Jasmine Fiore's body was found without fingers or teeth in a bloodstained suitcase in a trash bin on Aug. 15 in the Orange County city of Buena Park. She met Jenkins in Las Vegas in March, soon after he completed filming the reality show, and married him weeks later.
Police believe he has fled to his native Canada.
A VH1 spokesman said no decision has been made about the future of "I Love Money 3," the not-yet-aired competitive reality series that includes Jenkins as a participant.
The "I Love Money" series features contestants from VH1 shows competing for cash. The network had not yet scheduled "I Love Money 3," so it was likely to air sometime in 2010, the VH1 spokesman said.
VH1 pulled "Megan" off the air and iTunes and eliminated all mention of it from its Web site following Fiore's death.
