"Alyssa is planning a holiday. She has been unhappy since the show went to air and just needs to wind down," a friend told the publication.
"She really just wants to move on and forget that she was ever on the show. It has been completely unfair. What we saw on television was not her."
Speaking with the Daily Telegraph this week, Alyssa pointed out the "coincidence" of being made redundant two weeks after the show finished airing.
The reality star shared with the publication that her issues with 'husband' Duncan James came after suffering one of many panic attacks, revealing, "It was really dark for a couple of months."
She adds that she stopped watching the show after the couples retreat episodes as she "could see what the edit was" and was left upset that her arguments with Duncan lacked proper context.
Alyssa claims that Duncan didn't want to spend time with her but told her on camera that she didn't have "enough time for him", questioning his motives and adding it was "interesting" to see it all play out on screen.
The reality star also hit out at the producers of the show for encouraging "bullying culture" from fans.
The bride said that while she understood that fans of the show would be sharing their opinions online, she has also been receiving "the most vile messages" with the "intent to hurt" to her personal phone number and business accounts.
After receiving constant abuse from fans, Alyssa asked Nine for access to her Instagram to challenge the narrative of the show's edit but was denied, as MAFS has yet to finish airing in the UK.
"They're protecting the show and the narrative they've created, rather than letting me have my own voice," she said.
She told the publication she has since been seeing her long-term psychologist three times a week and has had to up her anxiety medication, adding she hopes future stars of the show know what they're getting into.
