For years, Megan Hauserman was considered all that was wrong with reality TV. The busty blonde provided nothing of substance to the world.

She just got naked a lot and was rewarded with appearances on Beauty and the Geek, Rock of Love 2, I Love Money and Rock of Love Girls: Charm School.

She was eventually given her own dating show, Megan Wants a Millionaire, and says it was a "dream come true."

But this turned into a nightmare in August 2009, when a recently-booted contestant named Ryan Jenkins was found to have killed his ex-girlfriend (Jasmine Fiore) and himself.

In a gruesome scene, Fiore's mutilated body was found stuffed into a suitcase. The police spent the next eight days trying to locate Jenkins before finding him dead in a hotel room. During this week, Hauserman was panicked beyond belief.

"I was terrified he was going to come looking for me," she tells People in a new interview. "I never left my apartment... I try not to think too much about all this. But it's hard not to. This was such close call. Jasmine and I could have been interchangeable."

Hauserman's show was taken off the air and there are no plans to feature it again on VH1. Megan may need to get an actual job and network executives may need to look at themselves in the mirror.

When you put such complete and utter crap on the air, you can't be shocked when you attract such shady individuals.

Detectives searching Ryan Jenkins' hard drive say they have found a makeshift will he wrote three days before the reality star killed himself in Canada.

Buena Park, Calif., police investigators say they consider the will to be a "suicide note" since it provides insight into what Jenkins was thinking as he sat in a motel in British Columbia in August as the target of an international manhunt.

He was the prime suspect in the murder of his wife, Jasmine Fiore.

In the letter, the reality star who vied to see Megan Hauserman nude on Megan Wants a Millionaire and then went on to win I Love Money 3, which will likely never air, blames Fiore for his predicament, saying she made him jealous.

She apparently did this by sleeping with former boyfriends.

Ryan Jenkins all but certainly killed Playboy rep Jasmine Fiore.

"It was clearly defined that Mr. Jenkins was jealous of multiple side relationships she had," Buena Park Police Sgt. William Kohanek said of the will.

Jenkins doesn't mention Jasmine Fiore in the one-and-a-half-page letter, the manner in which she died, or that he was a suspect in the slaying.

These are very incriminating omissions, according to officials: "The lack of acknowledging he'd just lost his wife speaks volumes," Kohanek says.

In the will, which was not printed out, Jenkins leaves money and possessions to family members, and apologizes to them for the negative media attention the situation had brought them over the previous month or so.

Investigators found the will over the weekend, on a laptop computer that was found in Jenkins' motel room August 23, after he hanged himself.

Jealousy was the most obvious motive for Ryan Jenkins' likely slaying of Jasmine Fiore last month, but police are still trying to figure out the details.

Specifically, what would cause Jenkins, who went on to kill himself, to fly into such rage that he'd brutally murder Jasmine Fiore, his Playboy model wife?

Well, just four days before she was killed, Jasmine shared a romantic moment on a California beach with a man who wasn't her husband, Michael Cardosi.

Cardosi is Jasmine's ex-husband, and who had been in prison for the last three years. The photos were taken the day he was let out of prison, August 11.

In pictures, the two can be seen hugging, smiling, touching and even sharing a kiss. Jasmine Fiore is not wearing her wedding ring in any of the photos.

Cardosi's mother, Winnie, says they were ecstatic to see each other during the two-day reunion, and Jasmine kept in touch with him during his time in prison.

Cops believe Jasmine was killed by Ryan Jenkins Friday, August 14. Cardosi was sent back to prison Sunday, August 16 for violating the terms of his probation.

It is not known if Jenkins knew about the reunion or if that is what set him off on a murderous rampage. There is also the theory that Fiore's text messages to Robert Hasman, a former fiance and friend, played a role in Jenkins' jealousy.

Jenkins is believed to have seen - and responded to - one of the last texts Hasman sent to Fiore on her phone. He wrote simply "suck it" that night she died.

Buena Park, Calif., police said at a press conference that there were blood stains in a Mercedes they found abandoned in a parking lot in West Hollywood.

This car was owned by Jasmine Fiore.

Cops say there was definitely a "struggle between two people in the car" and that there was even more significant blood loss in the back seat of the car.

The inside had been wiped down and the outside was recently washed.

It appears a lot of hair-pulling occurred, and that the murdered model looks to have suffered trauma to her face as well as broken nose during the altercation.

Police say the car had definitely gone offroad at some point, as there were mud stains on the tires and there were twigs caught in the undercarriage.

Police believe Jasmine Fiore was slain two Fridays ago by Ryan Jenkins.

Ryan Jenkins killed himself Sunday in Hope, B.C. But before that, he was on the run for allegedly murdering wife Jasmine Fiore - and police are still trying to determine who aided him after he fled the U.S. into his native Canada.

The new theory? Ryan's 19-year-old half-sister Alena Jenkins helped hide the fugitive. The Canadian Broadcast Corporation and CTV are reporting that the woman police are now focusing on is Alena, a Vancouver photographer and model.

A woman answering Alena Jenkins' cellphone had no comment on the matter, and said only that Alena is busy with family, making funeral arrangements.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police are reportedly talking to Alena.

A PT Cruiser parked at her Vancouver condo matched the description of a car that took Ryan Jenkins to the Thunderbird Motel where he committed suicide.

The media is reporting that police were at the condo on Tuesday, and that the car spotted at the motel is registered to Ryan Jenkins' father, Dan Jenkins.

A RCMP spokesman said police are talking to a woman to determine how Jenkins was helped not only to reach the motel but also get across the border. Canadian laws prevent him from identifying anyone not charged with a crime.

Was sister Alena Jenkins the accomplice of fugitive Ryan?

Detectives are trying to determine "what role that person played, and the extent of the role they played." Criminal charges would have to be filed in the U.S.

Police said Jasmine Fiore was strangled, and that Ryan Jenkins, who reported her missing August 15, was the last person she was seen with before her death.

Fiore's missing 2007 white Mercedes was found on Wednesday a mile just west of her W. Hollywood home. Police towed the car to the Orange County Crime Lab.

Last week, after Fiore's body turned up in a Dumpster in Buena Park, Calif., Jenkins split across the border into Canada as prosecutors charged him with murder.

After Jenkins was found dead in the hotel, police began searching for the blonde who drove him to the hotel, checked in, paid cash for three days and bolted.

Originally, they focused on Paulina Chmielecka, his ex-fiancee. But it wasn't her.

Ryan Jenkins was a contestant on two VH1 reality shows, Megan Wants a Millionaire and I Love Money 3, both of which were later axed by the network.

The mystery blonde who helped reality TV star and suspected murderer Ryan Jenkins flee the authorities may have been his former fiancee, Paulina Chmielecka.

That's according to the manager of the motel in Hope, British Columbia, where the fugitive was found dead on Sunday afternoon after he apparently killed himself.

Ryan and Paulina were engaged until he called it off a few months ago. Around that time he pursed Megan Hauserman on VH1's Megan Wants a Millionaire, became a finalist, lost, went to Las Vegas and met Jasmine Fiore, who he married days later.

He then allegedly murdered Fiore last weekend. Got all that?

Shown photos of Paulina Chmielecka, who was in a relationship with Ryan Jenkins until early this year, manager Kevin Walter says he's "100 percent sure" the girl who drove him to the Thunderbird Motel and paid for the room Thursday is her.

Walter only spoke with the woman, while Jenkins waited in the car. He did not know who Ryan was or that he was wanted until he was found dead in the room.

So did Paulina Chmielecka really aid Ryan Jenkins? Don't be so sure.

Police now tell TMZ that despite the manager's claim, Paulina is not the woman they are looking for. Moreover, she seems to have an alibi, as her agent says she was doing a fashion show Friday and filming a cooking show Saturday.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police held a press conference in which they say they identified the mystery woman, though they did not reveal who it is.

They do not feel she is a public threat, nor are they appealing for her to come forward. The RCMP says she can only be charged as an accessory after the fact to crimes committed in Canada - not to the murder Jenkins was wanted for.

Hopefully, one way or another, the book will soon be closed on the tragic death of Jasmine Fiore. We hope the late model is resting in peace.

The investigation into the murder of Jasmine Fiore continues as authorities are looking for a woman who drove her suspected killer to a motel in Hope, B.C.

Police found reality TV star Ryan Jenkins dead late yesterday afternoon, dangling from the coat rack in his motel room after apparently taking his own life.

Ryan Jenkins, a contestant on Megan Wants a Millionaire (now pulled by VH1) and I Love Money 3, was wanted for the murder of Jasmine Fiore and the subject of an widespread manhunt before escaping to his native Canada late last week.

On Thursday, a woman checked him into the Thunderbird Motel in Hope. She was in her early 20s and drove a silver PT Cruiser with Alberta license plates.

The woman paid up front for three days in cash, stayed with Ryan Jenkins for about 20 minutes and wasn't seen again. The manager says he didn't get a look at Jenkins because he waited in the car while the mystery blond checked him in.

Meanwhile, those close to the murdered model are speaking out about Jenkins' death, saying it brings at least some amount of closure to the unspeakable tragedy.

Robert Hasman, the ex-boyfriend who police say Jasmine Fiore was texting the night before she was murdered, went on the Today show this morning and said in no uncertain terms that "I was happy that Ryan [Jenkins], that he killed himself."

Jasmine Fiore's mother, Lisa Lepore, was on the show as well and said how his death helps bring some sense of closure to her daughter's tragic passing.

"It is a long process, but it brings some closure to what's been going on," said Lepore, who now lives in Maui, Hawaii. "We don't have to worry about looking for him anymore or being worried that he is a threat to any other women or men."

The hunt for accused murderer Ryan Jenkins is over after he was found dead at the Thunderbird Motel in Hope, British Columbia, near Vancouver.

The reality TV star was wanted for the grisly murder of his wife, swimsuit model and Playboy rep Jasmine Fiore, two Fridays ago in Orange County.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police's Federal Border Integrity Unit say it's believed the 32-year-old, who is a native of Canada, took his own life.

"We aren't releasing the official cause of death at this time," Sgt. Duncan Pound said. "The preliminary evidence at this time appears to be a suicide."

Ryan Jenkins was discovered dead by motel staff and identified by fingerprints after eluding police for a week and escaping the U.S. to Canada.

He was wanted in California for first-degree murder charges.

Ryan Jenkins' body was found hanging, according to law enforcement sources.

The manager of the motel says Ryan Jenkins checked in on Friday, dropped off by a woman in her 20s who drove a PT Cruiser with Alberta license plates.

She stayed for 20 minutes and left. The room was paid for two days.

When Jenkins didn't check out Sunday, the manager checked on him. When there was no answer, he entered and found Ryan hanging by his belt from a coat rack.

His body was found around 5:00 PST.

Lt. Steve Holliday of Buena Park PD told the press that "The sadness of this is all is that Mr. Jenkins will not stand before an Orange County jury for his crime."

The mutilated remains of Jasmine Fiore were found in a suitcase in Buena Park, Calif., on August 15. The blonde's fingers and teeth had been cut off and pulled out, but she was able to be identified by the serial numbers of her breast implants.

Jenkins was a finalist on VH1's Megan Wants A Millionaire, starring Megan Hauserman. It was airing this summer but was pulled in light of Jenkins' alleged crime.

The accused murderer of Jasmine Fiore, Ryan Jenkins, remains on the run from the law and was described as "cool, calm and collected" by someone who saw him (and had no idea he was a fugitive) the night he escaped to Canada.

According to TMZ, Ryan Alexander Jenkins docked his boat in Whatcom County, Wash., before a short walk to the Canadian border. He spoke with a man who had no clue Jenkins was on the run, and later said he showed "no sign of remorse."

Police believer Jenkins murdered wife Jasmine Fiore two Fridays ago in Orange County, Calif. Her dismembered body was found in a suitcase in a dumpster.

Unfortunately, reports of his arrest late Friday night were premature and false.

Law enforcement sources say they have a "reason to believe" Jenkins' parents have been helping him in Canada. A source says he enlisted their help before anyone knew that Jasmine Fiore was killed ... but they may still be aiding him.

The parents are divorced, live in separate cities in Canada and are believed to have "tremendous" financial means. Ryan Jenkins himself was a millionaire real estate developer, having recently competed on VH1's Megan Wants a Millionaire.

Speaking of that show, it was abruptly yanked off the air in light of Ryan being wanted for murder. He married Jasmine Fiore in March, having met her just days after his dismissal by its leading lady, Megan Hauserman (above).

The news of the last week has left Megan Hauserman reeling.

"Megan is devastated," a close friend says of the reality star. "She got to know Ryan through her show, and she is shocked and saddened by the week's events."

Jenkins was a finalist on Megan Wants a Millionaire, a VH1 reality series with the goal of pairing the "aspiring trophy wife" with a millionaire, airing this summer.

"Right now she is taking comfort in her friends and keeping a close eye on news as this story unfolds," the friend of Megan Hauserman told People magazine.

We may never know who wins after police allege that Jenkins brutally murdered model Jasmine Fiore, strangling her, cutting off her fingers and pulling out her teeth, leaving her remains to be identified by breast implant serial numbers.

Buena Park, Calif., police say that the U.S. Marshals office informed the department that a man arrested last night in a Toronto airport was not Ryan Jenkins.

Authorities say they boarded a plane and arrested a man they believed to be I Love Money and Megan Wants a Millionaire star and fugitive Ryan Jenkins.

Officials later said it was not him. The 32-year-old reality TV star is charged with murder in Orange County, Calif., and is still the run from the law.

The man taken into custody in Toronto last night has been released.

The U.S. Marshals Service is still offering a $25,000 reward for information regarding the whereabouts of Ryan Alexander Jenkins - the husband of Jasmine Fiore, who authorities believe brutally murdered the model a week ago.

Ryan Jenkins is charged with killing wife Jasmine Fiore.

Jenkins is believed to have fled the United States, escaping to Canada (his native country) on foot after evading a massive manhunt for him at the border.

Meanwhile, police revealed the unusual way in which they identified the mutilated remains of Jasmine Fiore, who was found stuffed in a suitcase in a dumpster.

When Fiore's body was found in a Dumpster in Buena Park, Calif., August 15, her fingers had been cut off at the knuckle and all of her teeth were pulled out.

Authorities were still able to identify the swimsuit / Playboy model from the serial numbers on her breast implants, which are there in case of product recalls.

"We actually have had several cases where we identified the victim or the defendant in that way," an Orange County District Attorney spokeswoman stated.
