We’ve known for some time that the actress isn’t playing with a full deck, but her newest purchase is unlikely to solve that problem. Wilde was excited to share with her followers that she will soon be the proud owner of a very special set of playing cards: 52 Shades of Greed. Now, aren’t those practically begging to be framed?
