Port Arthur woman ignites worldwide headline fame after wedding dress blaze

PORT ARTHUR - A Port Arthur woman blowing up international headlines after a video of her setting her wedding dress on fire went viral.
 
She says this happened after her fiance cheated on her.
 
"I'm getting ready to burn this bad memory," says 41-year-old Khristella Joseph.
 
It's revenge after a heartbreak.
 
"My ex said that our relationship was a joke, so there are the flames," Joseph says.
 
"Burn, baby burn," she says.
 
She took matters into her own hands.
 
"I went and got lighter fluid and set the dress on fire," she says. 
 
"It went up in flames," Joseph says.
 
This blaze is causing an international craze, from the Daily Mail in the U.K. to Times Magazine, her raging heartbreak is making worldwide waves.
 
 
"There goes the end of a bad memory of a wedding dress someone pays for," she says.
 
"Do what you have to do to make yourself feel better, you have to do what you have to do," she explains.
 
Something she hopes won't happen ever again.
 
"I feel 100% better now that I have destroyed this dress," Joseph says.
 
"Hopefully I don't run into another man who thinks it's funny to play with my emotions," she explains.
 
Joseph tells us that her ex-fiance paid a total $117.32 for her dress.
 
She says this international fame came without a price tag.
