You're not the only one paying rent

Before I get burned

you need to understand

There'll be some pain

Some shame

- What's wrong?

- That was a mistake.

It went too far. Dinner's my limit,

just like I said.

You want

to tell me why?

I think I've told you

several times now.

Would you like

something else?

Uh, you...

No.

You know, really, you're

better off anyway. I'm pretty messed up.

My father used to say, when a woman

doesn't want to make love to you,

they usually tell you the story

of their life, so why don't you?

- I'll pass.

- No, I mean it.

Tell me, you know.

How long

you been married?

Seven years.

Is he rich?

Yeah.

How'd I guess?

He must've met you

when you were a baby.

Actually, I was 17.

- Hmm.

- A runaway, high school dropout.

I was lonely,

scared, dead broke.

- Out there on the edge, you know?

- Yeah.

I got a job in a grocery store,

working as a cashier.

Men were always coming in,

trying to pick me up, and I guess...

I didn't have a very high

opinion of myself.

- You know what I'm saying?

- Little bit.

So one night

Tony came in, and...

to me he looked like a god

in a thousand-dollar suit.

Sweet.

And on our frst date,

he asked me to marry him. I said yes.

Uh-huh, a regular f*cking fairy tale.

The prince loved you, and,

well, you loved his money.

No, really, that's not what happened.

I loved Tony...

and I still do...

love my husband.

You know, for some reason,

I think you're bullshitting me.

Okay? Why don't you

just tell me the truth?

Y- You used him, and

now you're sick of him.

Why be so greedy?

Why don't you just, uh, divorce

his ass and collect half the money?

No, I can't do that.

I signed this paper...

that said if I leave him,

I get nothing.

See? He's

a real smart guy.

You know, excuse me
