I guess denial is the only way to deal with such a tragedy. Ryan’s father, Dan Jenkins has released a statement in regards to his son’s death.
In the spring of this year, Ryan traveled to L.A. and spent five weeks filming a reality TV show entitled Megan Wants a Millionaire. After the show was finished filming, he went with a friend to Las Vegas. While there he met Jasmine and three days later married her in a Las Vegas wedding. Our family was shocked, but it was done. I never got a chance to meet Jasmine. They flew to Calgary while I was away on a business trip. Before I got back they had left to go to Jasmine’s grandmother’s funeral that had died unexpectedly.
It was a passionate and tumultuous relationship. Shortly after they were married, they were attending a pool party at a Vegas hotel when Ryan turned around and saw Jasmine kissing a stranger. He grabbed her hand and tried to leave. They argued, he pushed her away and she fell in the pool. He spent two horrific days in jail — for pushing someone in a swimming pool!! Sometime later he would say to me, “Dad — I cannot spend another day in jail for questioning — not one more day — I would rather die” — a foretelling of the tragic events to unfold months later.
The production company wanted Ryan to appear on another show that was to film in Mexico. He left for about six weeks and finally got back around the end of July or early August. In an e-mail to his sister he told her how in love with Jasmine he was and that they were very happy.
Monday, Aug. 17, I was on a holiday when Ryan called to tell me he was driving home to Canada. He sadly recounted that Jasmine had left him again. He said they had returned from San Diego early Friday evening, she had gone out saying she needed to run an errand and had not come back. By late Saturday afternoon he went to the LAPD and reported her missing.
Dan Jenkins goes on to blame the victim, what he fails to discuss is his son’s prior conviction for domestic abuse. A very sad situation for everyone involved. Regardless of what Jasmine did or did not do. She did not deserve to die such a tragic death. Ryan had a choice and he could have walked away anytime. He choose to take her life and his life in the end. No winners here…just a sad ending to a very volatile relationship.
Police continue to unravel the last 24 hours of Jasmine Fiore life. They believe after searching her Mercedes, the monster, Ryan Jenkins, killed her in the car. The police said the argument was fueled by a jealous lovers quarrel gone bad.
Here’s the rundown: Buena Park police think Ryan Jenkins severely beat Jasmine after they left the San Diego Hilton hotel at 2:30 AM on the 14th. Jenkins was seen entering the L’Auberge Del Mar hotel in San Diego at 4:30 AM alone. Cops believe Jasmine was taken into the hotel through a back patio entrance, which does not have a security camera.
A small amount of blood and hair was found on the patio. Cops say they never saw Jenkins leave the hotel with the suitcase Jasmine was found in. They think Ryan put her in the suitcase and took her out through the patio, because he was finally seen leaving the hotel without her or the suitcase at 9:20 AM. It’s unclear if Jasmine died in the hotel or in the car.
Cops say Jenkins made around 30 phone calls and texts between the time he left San Diego at 9:20 AM and arrived in Los Angeles at 5 PM. During this time, cops believe Ryan drove to Corona, pulled off-road and removed her teeth and fingertips — then dropped her body off in Buena Park before driving to Los Angeles. Cops won’t say who he called and texted.
The really weird part, he took their wedding rings and sent them via Fed-ex to Las Vegas. Why? To get them cleaned. Crazy and scary stuff. How the hell did he get on that reality show? That could have been poor Megan Hauserman.
Thoughts and prayers go out to the families.
RYAN JENKINS – New Video Interview: Family and Friends Say Reality Star is Innocent of Killing Jasmine Fiore!!!
Denial can definitely help one come with a tragic situation. Ryan Jenkins family is still insisting he is innocent of murdering Jasmine Fiore. That he was basically scared shitless and was going to hide out until August 24th and turn himself in. Unfortunately, his conscience got the best of him and he decided to take his own life.
Jenkins’ aunt and two of his closest friends, Dan and Eric, appeared on The Early Show.
Asked to describe her nephew, Linda Jenkins said, “First, let me just say that this past while has been a surreal existence for our entire family and that none of the events fits the Ryan that we knew and dearly loved. We are so devastated, and it’s impossible for me to give you full details on 32 years of Ryan’s life. He was a cherished member of our family, brought such joy and such happiness, and his witty humor and intelligence was just so outstanding. We’re just traumatized that this has happened to our family.”
Asked how surprised she and the family was when they heard these brutal charges, “We were immensely shocked. As a matter of fact, we live in waves of disbelief. It’s a nightmare for all of us. It’s just something we simply cannot accept knowing the Ryan that we all grew up with. And everything that was a part of his life.”
Linda Jenkins pointed out that she is convinced Ryan was not on the run from authorities. “I just found this news out, or had it confirmed, I should say. He was not actually on the run. And it’s important that people know that the whole time he was in contact with police. He gave them his license number. He told them where he was going. He okayed it. They said it was fine for him to do this. So he was not on the run. He was in touch with lawyers, and there was nothing unspoken about it.”
Thoughts and prayers go out to both families.
MEGAN WANTS A MILLIONAIRE – Sex Toy Dave Talks About His Reality Show Experience With Ryan Jenkins!!!
Dave Levine, appeared on Megan Hauserman’s new show along with Ryan Jenkins. Although he is contractually obligated not to say who won the show, he did do a Q&A with WSJ Speakeasy blogger Rachel Dodes.
What did you think of Ryan Jenkins on the show? What were your interactions with him like?
It takes a certain personality to do a reality show. They are looking for eccentric people. People ask me, “Do you think he was crazy?” If someone asked, “Do you think Sex Toy Dave is crazy?” You might say, “Yeah, he’s pretty f—ing crazy.” But I don’t do bad things. I hang upside down from a stripper pole. There’s a difference between eccentric—someone who speaks their mind in front of a camera—and to take a leap from that and to say that someone would kill someone…is just nothing that I never, you know, thought.
In addition to his insights into the Jenkins/Fiore story, the WSJ touches on Sex Toy Dave’s particular marketing savvy: He’s used his appearances on reality shows like Meghan Wants a Millionaire and Millionaire Matchmaker to help promote his online business interests, which include CNV.com, SexToys.com, and AdultShopping.com, among others.
Dave Levine, 41, has an unusual business model. The Los Angeles-based entrepreneur, who has a stripper pole in his living room, has built a $10 million-a-year sex-toy empire. And that’s not the unusual part.
For the past two years, Levine—known as “Sex Toy Dave” — has been using television dating competitions such as “The Millionaire Matchmaker” as a way to build his business. “This is a unique marketing strategy.”
When is this guy finally gonna get married? He’s definitely cute, I guess he enjoys playing the field too much.
The LA Examiner, revealed Ryan Jenkins astrological chart today. Ryan Jenkins, born on Feb 8, 1977, was a true Aquarius. The casting director for VH1, called him “perfect” for reality tv. He was good looking, out spoken, smart, funny, and very independent.
Last January, Ryan, who was discovered in Las Vegas, was cast for Megan Wants a Millionaire. At the time, he was the perfect castmate. Charming, funny, and nice. But did they see the dark side? I think Dr. Drew put it best. Actors are cast for their ability to appear as a dramatic character. Reality are cast, because they are dramatic characters, they live their lives on the edge.
Ryan’s chart shows that he has Moon, Saturn, and Pluto in Libra. This is someone who emotionally has a Dr.Jekyl and Mr. Hyde personality. Who is probably very insecure, has a bad temper, a severe mother/father conflict, but hides it behind a veil of charm.
In Jenkin’s chart, Saturn is retrograde in Libra. Jenkins had a lifelong issue of keeping his emotions in control. He never allowed himself to be loved. He had a dogmatic and selfish approach to life, with a total lack of caution.
With Pluto retrograde in Libra, Jenkins was a vulnerable person when it came to expressing emotion. His Moon is also in Libra, ensuring that Jenkins was a charmer with a taste for the finer things in life. Concerning relationships, he considered himself to be very generous. Most of what he attained in life came with great ease. He was likely born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Despite likely being born into wealth, he wasn’t a sentimental person and he cared little about his ancestry. In relationships, not only did he argue, but he likely said plenty in haste that he did not mean. He was likely dishonest and deceitful from an early age.
Basically, he was a ticking time bomb. Does this mean anyone with this aspect is going to explode? No. It does mean a period of depression, feeling lost, and not emotionally happy. If you’re immature, lack the proper emotional skills to handle stress, it can go frightfully wrong. In this case, it’s my opinion that the murder/suicide was fueled by drugs and alcohol. Jasmine and Ryan were a toxic couple who made a lethal combination. A sad ending to a tragic love story.
The Ryan Jenkins and Jasmine Fiore, tragic murder/suicide love story, continues to have its twist and turns. Police are desperately looking for Jasmine’s Mercedes and believe it to have crucial evidence related to her death.
Another puzzle, who was the mystery blond women who helped Ryan Jenkins check into the suicide motel? Today, the CBC has revealed it was his half sister, Alena Jenkins.
The Canadian Broadcast Channel (CBC) said police sources have identified the woman who helped reality contestant Ryan Jenkins check into a motel while police were pursuing him for the murder of his bikini model ex-wife Jasmine Fiore.
That woman, says the CBC, is Jenkins’ half-sister Alena Jenkins.
CTV, another Canadian broadcaster, reported late Tuesday evening that Mounties have been in contact with Ryan Jenkins’ younger half-sister, who lives in Vancouver.
The report said they have asked Alena Jenkins what she knows about how Ryan Jenkins ended up getting from Point Roberts, Wash., to the Hope motel more than 60 miles (100 kilometres) away.
A person answering the phone at a residence believed to be Alena Jenkins’ told the Canadian Press that she was with her family and had not been home all day.
It’s a very sad story for both families. I don’t blame Alena trying to help her brother. His family believed he was innocent, although all the evidence points to Ryan Jenkins. Police have not decided whether or not they will arrest Alena Jenkins for obstructing justice. They are reportedly questioning her about her brothers death. Sad.
