Can I sue my soon-to-be ex-wife for posting a private video of me on Youtube?

We are in the process of a divorce. The video contains secretly recorded audio of me screaming my head off in our home, and the video claims “this is an example of domestic verbal abuse”. It is highly edited to make me look bad. We are in a state where it is legal to secretly record conversations, so long as you are part of the conversation. However, I was wondering if I can sue based on breach of privacy and what my chances of success might be?
