Mother-in-laws email attack on bride-to-be goes viral

Carolyn Bourne knows all about plants. Apparently she also knows a common gold-digging little slut when she sees one as well.

Relations between bride-to-be Heidi Withers and her future mother-in-law Carolyn Bourne are at an all time low now that a scathing email from Carolyn to Heidi has gone viral on the internet.

Heidi Withers received a rather grumpy email from her fiance’s stepmother accusing her of a lack of manners among other things.

Heidi then forwarded the email to some friends to show them what she was marrying into. Those lovely friends have now managed to send the email viral on the internet in the space of a few hours.

Now hundreds of thousands of readers have received a lesson in manners and snobbery.

The email was a result of a visit Fulham based Heidi Withers, a 28-year-old personal assistant and her fiance Freddie Bourne made to his parents in Dawlish, Devon.

Following the visit, Freddie’s stepmother, Carolyn Bourne, 60, apparently sent off an email to her future daughter-in-law accusing her of all sorts of heinous social crimes.

The message read: ”It is high time someone explained to you about good manners. Yours are obvious by their absence and I feel sorry for you.” It added: ”If you want to be accepted by the wider Bourne family I suggest you take some guidance from experts with utmost haste. There are plenty of finishing schools around. You would be an ideal candidate for the Ladette to Lady television series.”

The email said Ms Withers’s behaviour had been so rude that it had left the family dog, Bomber, traumatised, depressed and anxious. It also accused her of staying in bed too late, complaining about the food, cracking inappropriate jokes about the family and failing to send a card thanking ”Georgia” – believed to be a family member – for her hospitality.

In addition, Mrs Bourne apparently criticised her future daughter-in-law’s plan for the wedding: ”No one gets married in a castle unless they own it. It is brash, celebrity-style behaviour. I understand your parents are unable to contribute very much towards the cost of your wedding. (There is nothing wrong with that except that convention is such that one might presume they would have saved over the years for their daughters’ marriages.) If this is the case, it would be most ladylike and gracious to lower your sights and have a modest wedding as befits both your incomes.”

And in a stinging pay-off, she apparently remarked: ”One could be accused of thinking that Heidi Withers must be patting herself on the back for having caught a most eligible young man. I pity Freddie.”

Here are a few examples of your lack of manners:
To: Heidi

Subject: Manners

WHEN you are a guest in another’s house, you do not declare what you will and will not eat – unless you are positively allergic to something. You do not remark that you do not have enough food. You do not start before everyone else. You do not take additional helpings without being invited to by your host.

When a guest in another’s house, you do not lie in bed until late morning in households that rise early – you fall in line with house norms.

You should never ever insult the family you are about to join … You regularly draw attention to yourself. Perhaps you should ask yourself why.

No one gets married in a castle unless they own it. It is brash, celebrity-style behaviour … it would be most ladylike and gracious to lower your sights and have a modest wedding as befits both your incomes.”

Mr Bourne, 29, who runs an online bicycle shop, would not comment on the email but conceded the matter had been discussed within the family.

Sod the wedding newswarped is highly concerned about the mental well being of poor Bomber the dog. There is nothing like family squabbles to deprive a dog of the will to go on.
