    It's the kind of story you might see on a "Real Housewives" reality show. Rich Guy isn't satisfied with his wife anymore. She's aging naturally and the wrinkles are setting in. Sure, she's popular and most people love her just the way she is, warts...

    That's your $500 million Cubs news conference?
