Women think that if a man is famous and has money that he is a safe person to date and marry. Not so, be very careful to know the man. Money isn't everything. If you marry or date because of money, don't you think he knows that. Have some insight and common sense before taking that step.

I feel bad for Megan. Set up with a murderer/wife beater. It could have been her.

Mmmm    

If this guy was convicted in Canada recently, how did he cross the border and do a reality show so easily in the U.S.? In Canada, it's extremely difficult for Americans convicted of crimes to enter Canada because of the extensive background checks. The ones that do have to go through extensive questioning and paper work. America should take note.

VH1 has pulled everything Megan related from their website, they also posted their official statement:

http://blog.vh1.com/2009-08-19/vh1s-official-statement-on-megan-wants-a-millionaire/

He was on I love money 3 as well, I wonder what affect that will have on that show...

and apparently it's not VH1 that should do the background checks, its the 51 Minds production company...

Sucks for Megan, she finally got her break and look what happened

On the show he has the whole "stalker" vibe going for him from day one. Creepy on the show ... creepier in real life. You would think a criminal background check would be mandatory on a show like this. Giving us Canadians a bad name! I hope he gets tried in the U.S., our legal system is not as harsh. I have an idea for his next career move .... Karla Holmolka wants to marry a murderer!
