Girls Aloud star Cheryl Cole wanted to attack her husband when she found out he had cheated on her.
The pop beauty admits she was devastated when she discovered England soccer star Ashley Cole had slept with another woman following a drunken night out.
She immediately took off her wedding ring - set with a heart-shaped rock and worth $300,000 - and was so angry she only considered putting it back on for one reason.
Cheryl, 25, said: "I was tempted to put it back on - into his head."
The "Biology" singer was given a new wedding ring by Ashley, which she showed off for the first time this week, indicating she has finally forgiven Ashley, 27, for his liaison with hairdresser Aimee Walton, 22, in January this year.
Cheryl, who is also a judge on British TV talent show "The X Factor" said the incident showed she and Ashley are only human.
She added to British TV talk show host Jonathan Ross: "There's something about celebrities having a perfect life. People need to relax and realize we're human, too."
"There's no such thing as a private life in this industry. I spoke openly about my marriage in the past and it's come back to hit me in the face. I learned from the past that you shouldn't do that."
Meanwhile, Cheryl made her catwalk debut on Wednesday night at London's Natural History Museum, to raise money for the White Ribbon Alliance, a charity dedicated to saving the lives of pregnant women and newborn babies.
