Memphis announces to her costars, “I’m about to go get something.” As she goes backstage, she says, “I need something. My head is banging. And the lights are just making it worse.”

The host, Shaun Robinson, said, “Okay, so Memphis had to step away for a minute. Apparently, she’s not feeling well. We’re going to give her some time. Hopefully, she returns soon.”

After the cast has a quick break, Memphis returns to the set with Hamza. Shaun asks her how she’s doing. She says, “Just [a] headache and vomiting and stuff. Just not feeling good. And so I’m going to end up leaving.”

Shaun asks, “Oh no, you’re going to go?” Memphis replies, “Yeah, I just gotta go, you know? It’s just too much.” However, Hamza decides he will stay back and continue with the tell-all.

One fan wrote, “One theory i heard is that because Memphis and Hamza are going to be on the show next season, the producers didn’t want them giving away details that will be on the show in the future. so they had her say she’s feeling sick and leave.”

Another fan theorized that Memphis left the set because she had a migraine. The fan wrote, “I don’t want to defend her but I have a migraine disorder that makes it impossible for me to be in public when I’m having an attack. Bright lights and noise can trigger this.”

They continued, “I believe this is what happened to her because this is what her symptoms were, and a person without migraine[s] wouldn’t necessarily know this. But a person with migraine can recognize when it’s happening to a person.”

Will Memphis and Hamza return for ‘Happily Ever After?’

Many fans believe that Memphis left the set as per the production’s request because there’s a new season in the works. It could be possible that Hamza and Memphis could be returning to TLC on 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?.
