'MAFS' Season 15 Reunion Part 2: Does Alexis blame herself for Morgan and Binh's failed marriage?
In the reunion, Alexis clarified a few things, saying that 'Morgan actually came to me, it wasn’t that I just ran and told Morgan'
SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA: Marriages aren't always guaranteed on 'Married at First Sight', but Season 15's ladies are showing their friendship is indestructible in a first-look preview for Part 2 of San Diego's reunion. Alexis Mitchell recounts her friendship with one of the ladies, Morgan Bell, and her thoughts on her involvement, which ultimately led to Morgan's failed marriage to Binh Trinh.
The heavily hyped episode, hosted by Kevin Frazier, is taking some time out for the ladies of the previous season, who speak up about their experiences in the preview clip. The host wishes to discuss Morgan's catastrophic marriage and the part Alexis played in it. When asked about Morgan's connection to the group despite her untimely divorce, Morgan says, "it was hard not seeing the ladies, but we still kept up with the group chat." Despite having her journey on the show ended prematurely due to a decision to split up with match Binh, Morgan maintains that the women "were keeping me in the loop, so it's like I kind of never left."
How did Alexis get engaged in the Morgan/Binh situation?
Binh Trinh and Morgan Bell, another couple on the show, had several difficulties because Morgan didn't want Binh to confide in other people about their marital problems. Morgan felt enraged with Binh after Alexis Mitchell informed her that Binh was discussing some of their marriage troubles with her husband, Justin Hall. Many fans were outraged by Morgan's treatment of Binh after learning the truth. Sadly for Alexis, some of those fans also criticized her for first disclosing that knowledge to Morgan.
Morgan couldn't get past Binh's behind-the-scenes conversations with Justin regarding their marriage. The breakdown of trust was caused in part by her awareness of the men's chats and Binh's willingness to lie about it. Morgan learned about Binh and Justin's interactions via Alexis, who overheard the guys talking. But, at the reunion, Alexis clarifies, "Morgan actually came to me, it wasn’t that I just ran and told Morgan.”
"We were just having a powwow session, and she was just pouring her heart out, and I just saw the pain in her eyes, and I had the answers to — in a sense — give her what she needed," Alexis adds further during the reunion. She wants viewers to know she wasn't purposefully inciting controversy.
When asked if she felt guilty about Binh and Morgan's divorce, Alexis says, "it was extremely hard. At times, I found myself blaming myself, but in the end, I found out it was just a truth, and if a truth sets someone free, that’s what it is… it was just me supporting my friend."
