The bride behind THAT open letter to her fiancé's ex has spoken out
The bride who scared the internet senseless over the weekend with a letter to her future husband's ex has responded to the furore.
Over the weekend the letter, in which a bride gloats to the girl her husband went out with in high school, did the rounds on the internet and earned the writer a fair bit of scorn.

Lines from the letter, published by Missouri State University newspaper The Odyssey under the headline You May Have Worn The Prom Dress With Him, But I Get To Wear The Wedding Dress, include:
"I wish that I could say I’m sorry it didn’t work out for you, but I can’t."
"He is mine now, and I get to cherish him forever."
"I am sure you had fun choosing his matching tux to your dress."
"I am getting to match his tux with our wedding colours."
Now the bride in question, 22-year-old Victoria Higgins, has spoken out about the letter going viral, revealing that she's had death threats
"He (her fiancé Brandon) has been getting a lot of messages saying he needs to leave me and that I should be alone forever," Victoria told The Daily Mail.
'I’ve been getting messages telling me this if I’m so jealous and psycho that I should kill myself, or that I will have a sad miserable life and I need to check into a psych ward."
She said the piece wasn't directed at a single girl, rather it stemmed from a conversation with friends about how they wished they'd known their boyfriends at a younger age.
"That’s where the article came from. It was written in about 20 minutes for the deadline."
The couple plan to go ahead with their nuptials next month, she said.
