'Happily Ever Altered': Matt and Alexa undergo weight-loss surgery before wedding, fans say duo needs therapy
Matt was worried about their relationship as he was haunted by thoughts of Alexa leaving him and going after someone better
'Lifetime' aired a special — 'Happily Ever Altered' — this week. Although the premise is interesting, worried fans have raised questions if mental health professionals were hired to assess the situation.
Alexa and Matt set out on a weight loss journey so that they can be the best versions of themselves on their wedding day. At first, it seemed doable but Alexa lost confidence when she started to factor everything she'd have to give up to transform — she will have to be away from Matt for three months. Sure they can talk on the phone but physically meeting with each other is not an option. But Alexa was ready to do that for herself. But Matt was worried about their relationship. He was haunted by thoughts of her leaving him and going after someone better. Post her weight loss surgery, Alexa started to wear form-fitted clothes and had a few guys hitting on her which left Matt concerned. He wanted to meet with her and would call and text her.
Alexa enjoyed the attention and said she loved him dearly but she needed her own space too. Matt immediately took the hint and hoped they would meet at the altar which they did after a grueling and trying 90 days. On their big day, after some suspense, they were thrilled to get hitched and be happy about how they looked. Alexa especially, who probably didn't expect the change Matt underwent. But fans think they should have had access to therapy because losing weight and at the same time staying away from the one you love does take a toll.
"Damn 8 days out and Lex having second thoughts and Matt scared cuz she wearing tight clothes with a few admirers. Was therapy not included in this? #HappilyEverAltered," a fan commented, while another wrote: "3 months is too long for you and your spouse to come back to each other as new people. She just said shes NEVER had arms like that. I hope they're providing these people therapy #HappilyEverAltered." "They shouldn't do this without having these folks speak to mental health professionals as well #happilyeveraltered," another fan tweeted.
