Carolyn Bourne’s Emails To Future Daughter-In-Law Heidi Withers Go Viral
Now making the Internet rounds: a set of obnoxious emails from a British mother sent to her future daughter-in-law. The subject of the correspondence: the bride-to-be’s “staggering uncouthness and lack of grace.”
According to the Evening Standard, Carolyn Bourne sent three harshly-worded missives in one day to Heidi Withers, who is engaged to marry Bourne’s stepson Freddie, after the couple spent a weekend at the Bourne’s family home.
Apparently the weekend did not go as well as Heidi might have hoped, as her future mother-in-law a.k.a. Emily Post Wannabe criticized her manners, her taste and her parents’ finances.
Below is the email message that has been most widely circulated, as Heidi sent the email to a few of her own friends, who then sent it across the Internet.
