The kiss-off is official: TV’s runaway bride Darva Conger has filed for an annulment of her marriage to Rick Rockwell. In court papers filed in Las Vegas Tuesday, Conger, 34, says the marriage to Rockwell, 42, on the Feb. 15 Fox TV special “Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire?” was a “mutual mistake of fact and was entered into solely for an entertainment purpose.” She says that the union was never consummated and that Fox failed to inform her that Rockwell “had a history of problems with his prior girlfriends and was the subject of at least one restraining order for threatening and dangerous behavior.” While she isn’t keeping her husband, Conger will hold onto the Isuzu Trooper and the $35,000 diamond ring she won on the show. And there might be more where that came from: TV’s “Entertainment Tonight” reported that Conger could have a book deal and already has a $3 million offer to pose nude for Penthouse magazine. Just in time, too, because “ET” said Conger was fired from her nursing job. Rockwell, meanwhile, is returning to his stand-up comedy career. He opens in Tempe, Ariz., this weekend.
