Jenkins' sentence included 15 months probation and mandatory counseling for "psychological/domestic violence/coping skills."

As for the "coping skills," he was ordered to attend outpatient treatment at a hospital for sex addiction.

If this guy was convicted of such a crime in 07 WHY did VH1 even let him on the show? NICE going VH1.. Way to scan your contestants.. What a mess this is. How horrifying for this girls family.

First of all Nancy Grace is making it sound like Jasmine is perfect, and by all means, SHE IS NOT! She would "work guys" for money while living in Vegas. All at the same time being married to Ryan.

I've been commenting on TMZ for a couple of years. I'm done with it. Every comment for the last six months has caused my system to slow way down. Does anyone else have this problem? WTH TMZ, can't you afford a better system? I've heard several people I know so TMZ is so damn slow it's not worth writing comments. Now let's see if this attempt causes my system to be slower than a tortoise. It doesn't happen with any other site I post on.

Person of interest and Suspect are interchangable terms in murder investigations. The term 'Suspect' is being phased out by it's new scematic playmate: person of intertest.

IF POLICE INVEST POLICE TIME , MONEY , EFFORT , TELLING THE PUBLIC THAT A SPECIFIC INDIVIDUAL COMMITED A SPECIFIC MURDER THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 'suspect' and 'person of interest' is mute.

If this is true, then Megan should sue everyone involved in casting Megan wants a Millianaire for not doing a background check. With this kind of past, it could of been Megan in that suitcase. She should be pissed yet thankful she didn't choose this loser.

VH1 is extremely lame!! What does a contestant's death & crime have anything to do with discontinuing their TV programs? Several celebrities have died, some of them were by terrible crimes, did they stop showing their movies, series shows etc.??! NO! Why the hell VH1 has to cancel their most popular reality shows that viewers have been looking forward to for months?! VH1 is going to lose out big time on their income if they don't bring on MWAM & ILM3! In my country, it will be one less cable station (I have the power to do this!) VH1 will no longer be needed!!
