Dead Model Story x Reality TV =

ryan-jenkins-reality-douche

A dead “swimsuit model” in a suitcase doesn’t seem very interesting at first glance. I remember another one they found out in the desert somewhere, murdered by some guy on craigslist.

But now the story has branched out in several directions, promising a perfect storm of sensationalist trash.   The murder suspect is a former reality show contestant who has just finished filming another reality show.   And not only that, but the cops have revealed that the victim’s teeth and fingers had been “removed.”

That is where I draw the line, and I hope you agree.   If you have to kill someone and stuff them in a suitcase, so be it. But the teeth removal, no fucking way. It’s just too awful and unfair. It’s such an insult in every way.

Now VH1 will have the choice of scrapping season 3 of “I Love Money,” out of concern for the murder case, or going ahead with some inane excuse that there’s a moral imperative to air the show.   They must be flipping out at VH1, thinking, “God, what a break! Our ratings will go off the chart!”

I don’t know where this will lead,   in terms of creating a frenzy to distract us from the lack of new Michael Jackson minutiae.   But for now we can all be grateful that we’re not stuffed in a suitcase somewhere without our teeth.

And when we watch a reality show and marvel at how crazy those people are, we will know there’s a chance theyr’e even crazier than they look.

    This is truly fucked. That poor woman. My heart goes out to her family . . . what a terrible phone call to receive. Is it just me or does psycho pants vaguely resemble Dave Matthews?

    I can’t help but to think “VH1 will lose a ton of money and they won’t plague us with another crappy show of douchebaggery on display”. But still that poor woman! Tonight it hit me like a ton of bricks that the Real World house is located one block from my ballet studio. I cringe, I cringe. And it only makes me hate MTV/VH1/Viacom more because there is no parking on that goddamn street anymore. They must have paid up the wazoo for all those spaces they’re hogging 24 hours a day/7 days a week. Is that really necessary . . . for a program that’s clearly somewhat scripted/prompted?

    I believe VH1 canceled the show yesterday and made a statement.

  3. Alicia says:

    Sweet minty jesus…that is horrible…sounds like something from an episode of CSI.

  4. Tooth extraction and finger removal that is really sick and calculated.

    Oh, dooooood! I haven’t even had my coffee yet!

    Wait, that girl in the picture above was a model?

    Friends of mine wrote and frequently performed a song about a guy who kills his cheating wife, stuffs her body in a suitcase and sends the suitcase on a train to Abilene. I loved that song (hey, it was well written and funny). Not anymore. Now it’s become too disturbing and true-to-life.

    This is so horrible. That poor woman and her family. Where do these kinds of psychos come from and why do these “reality” shows keep putting them in front of us as entertainment?

    Horrible on so many levels.

  9. Bex says:

    Poor girl…nobody deserves to get murdered and stuffed in a suitcase…people are fucked up.

    If he would have his teeth taken out without the anesthetic, he’d be somewhat properly punished. Or loose a couple of fingers.
    Sick bastard.

    Prison retribution makes a bitch.

    I think that makes sense…at least it does when it popped into my head!

  12. Aja says:

    I don’t know if you read the most recent update. Dude hung himself. God this story sucks. It just gets worse and worse.

    Aja – Fucker!!! A coward on top of everything.
