____________________

Several years ago, my (then) husband foolishly ate all my chocolate (note: although that wasn't the actual reason for our separation, it certainly didn't help)
Naturally, it sent me into a frenzy worthy of an Academy Award. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills could eat their heart out, a new reigning diva was on the scene. I went completely wild! Think Wolverine and Sideshow Bob's love child and you've got a pretty clear picture ...
