So the next night she decided to order something she might like, so she could try it - but it doesn't end well.

She says: "The best thing about Snap is I don't have to hear anybody hating or trolling, 'cause I think this is something you definitely wanna hate or troll on.

"So they have this menu for my dog, because Chip left his food, can you imagine?"

"And I promise you, I was like, 'That looks so good.' It was fresh greens and boiled chicken and beef and it was seared tenderly. It was just perfection. That looks like the best food. Better than my food."

She went on: "So today, I was like, I might wanna taste his food, so I order him the salmon and rice because I eat salmon and rice. Before you judge me, look at it. It's kinda all mixed together. C'mon, it looks good...I put some in his bowl. I'm like, what the heck, I'm gonna try a piece. So I ate a spoonful. Don't judge me, I ate a spoonful!"

"Let's fast forward two hours. I just ran to the toilet like... I thought I was gonna pass out. It did taste weird. I force-swallowed it."

She said it tasted like there was some kind of "cleaner" in there and laughed: "I don't think it's consumable for humans. They should've wrote that! So now I feel really sick. It was just a spoonful. I really don't feel so good..."

But there was a light at the end of the tunnel. She joked: "I guess tomorrow when I step on the court I'm gonna look svelte."
