The Barbie Dream House was a pink playhouse for kids. But I lived in the real one. Unlike the pink plastic fantasy every girl wanted, Jack Ryan’s real Dream House was a 5 acre Bel Air Castle, hosting 300 parties a year for Hollywood’s A-list. Jack's creative mind worked 24/7 delighting people who knew him. But there’s a darker side to the Dream House. Salacious headlines, lawsuits and a standoff with LAPD SWAT Team, the REAL story of Jack Ryan has not been told until now, by me, his daughter, Ann Ryan. ©2022 Ann Ryan - Dream House - The Real Story of Jack Ryan.
