"I should tell you that we had four years of psychotherapy trying to save the marriage before I did this, so it wasn't like a big surprise, but I went out and had breakfast with girlfriends and had my husband served at home."

Watch the clip above to find out happened when Fay returned home later that day, and check out the full segment here.
