Rick Rockwell was billed as a multi-millionaire who'd made his money in real estate. In reality, he was a stand-up comedian and motivational speaker. He has since left show business entirely, and now works as a flight instructor.
Website The Smoking Gun revealed that a judge had issued a restraining order against Rockwell in 1991 after his ex-fiancée accused him of hitting her and threatening to kill her. Rockwell denied hitting her.
