Who wants to publicly humiliate themselves?
Twenty two million people saw Who Wants to Marry a Millionaire, and anyone who's stood in line at the grocery store probably knows as much as anyone else. It was basically a beauty contest, but instead of getting a tiara and a parade float to wave from, the winner got to be history's highest payed hooker. Rick Rockwell, Star Search loser and real estate developer, was the mysterious millionaire the women made themselves a prize for. Yeah, the one that came out and forced that collective "oh shit, he's a geek" from the crowd when he emerged from the secret millionaire shadows.
Just like after you buy a cheeseburger, the first thing Rick did with his new purchase was stick his mouth on it. Before she could even say a third word to him, his tongue was already down her throat. During an interview later, he admitted this was a mistake and justified it by saying he "hugs his guy friends," and is "a very touchy-feely person." Thanks Rick, we figured you were looking for ass. We just wish you could have adopted a 19 year old Korean girl like a normal person. We also wish you would have told us one of your ex-girlfriends had a restraining order against you. Now you've forever tainted the proud reputation of slave owners such as famous president George Washington and talk show host Kathy Lee Gifford.
At the risk of editorializing, I think it was very presumptuous for Rick Rockwell, star of Return of the Killer Tomatos, Killer Tomatos Eat France, and Killer Tomatos Strike Back!, to think he could kiss his new wife on TV. Didn't he see Pretty Woman? If he had, he would have known that hookers hate getting kissed on the mouth. You can cover them in mayonnaise and duct tape their hair to the bed, but kissing is out of the question. This shows how careless and unprepared he was. If you're going to pay a chick to marry you, you should do a little research on the eating habits and mating rituals of hookers. You wouldn't marry a walrus without watching National Geographic, or at least a movie where a baby walrus learns to skydive with the help of two singing orphans.
When Rockwell was a stand up comedian, he was famous for sucking and being derivative to the point of stealing jokes. Other comics said he was talentless and would do anything for publicity, and after his girlfriend got a restraining order against him, one Portland comedian said, "The only way he would have beat his wife is if he saw another comic do it first." Unlike him, his new wife, Darva Conger, was not a small-time celebrity hated by the few people that had heard of her. But she quickly took care of that by publicly peeing on whatever gender equality had been built up by female axe throwers and biker bar dykes.
According to court documents, the marriage has officially never happened, but Miss Conger still went on 20/20 to talk with Dianne Sawyer about it. Click here for the twinkly-music intro to the interview. You know how after the wedding night, you're always curious if the bride got laid? So was Dianne. But instead of just demanding to see the hole in the sheet her and her husband/owner fucked through like any normal hard-hitting reporter would, she "put it delicately" by asking, "Did he make a move on you?" Adding, "You know, did he stick his cock in your vagina?" Her eyes widened and she asked again, "Hey, Darva. Darva. His cock. Nono. Did he put it in your vagina? C'mon Darva. C'mon, seriously. He looks really bad naked, doesn't he?"
Later in the interview, after they FINALLY started discussing Rick's history of girlfriend-beating, Darva brought up, "I was in the military for 10 years. I can take care of myself." Sawyer responded with a dismissive hand gesture and said, "Psh! Look, bitch. Maybe you don't know the rules, but if some guy buys you and wants to punch you, you take it and like it." Then while doing a mocking impression of Conger's voice, she whined, "Oooh! I'm all tough now! Yesterday I auctioned myself off in a bikini, and now I'm soooo bad ass!" Most of the 20/20 staff came onto camera by this point, parading around like beauty contestants and offering to marry each other for increasingly less money until Darva stormed out. The last five minutes of the show was mostly the stage hands laughing and high fiving.
