MAFS bride loses her job after ‘villain’ edit: Alyssa Barmonde ‘coincidentally’ made redundant two weeks after the finale – as she reveals she is seeing a therapist and taking anxiety drugs

A controversial Married At First Sight star has lost her job after being portrayed as the ‘villain’ on the latest season.

Alyssa Barmonde, a single mother from Sydney’s Northern Beaches, was recently let go from the company where she’d worked as an executive assistant for seven years.

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph on Monday, she noted the ‘coincidence’ of being made redundant just two weeks after the MAFS finale aired.

The 35-year-old had been edited badly during the second half of the season, with scenes highlighting her emotional outbursts, mistreatment of husband Duncan James, and constantly using ‘I have a child’ as an excuse for her poor behaviour.

But Alyssa, an ex-Mormon who hails from Utah, insists this portrayal was one-sided and unfair, adding that many of her clashes with Duncan, with whom she split at the final vows, lacked proper context on screen.

She confessed she went through a ‘really dark… couple of months’ while the show was airing and had to stop watching after the couples’ retreat because ‘I could see what the edit was’.

Alyssa revealed she was harassed by viewers who tracked down her mobile number and business accounts, receiving ‘the most vile messages’.

She asked Channel Nine’s publicity department to give her access to her Instagram account so she could challenge the narrative of the show’s edit, but they denied the request until the season has finished airing in the UK.

‘They’re protecting the show and the narrative they’ve created, rather than letting me have my own voice,’ she claimed.

Alyssa feels hurt and betrayed by producers after watching the series and seeing all the problems in her relationship with Duncan blamed on her single parent status.

She is being supported by her therapist, whom she has been seeing for twenty years, during sessions three times per week, and has ‘upped’ the dosage of her anxiety medication, reports Confidential.

A new season of Married At First Sight is currently in pre-production.
