1- If your greatest claim to fame is that you are someones ex, you might have self-esteem problems to start with.

2- You can make something like a hamburger from soy protein. You can make something approximating an analog of a hot dog from soy protein. You can even shape a cutlet of sorts from soy. But there ain't no way that you can make chicken from soy. Chicken can only be made from dead birds.
