Megan Wants a Millionaire (2009– )
In order to keep Megan quiet about Jenkins' criminal case and to compensate her loss of air time, VH1 offered the 27-year-old her own show. A source told RadarOnline that before axing "Millionaire", VH1 "promised Megan her own show...that's how they bought her silence."
