Amber and Matt sit down to answer the hard questions.
When asked how she feels about the way MTV portrays her on screen, she says, “We don’t go by a script, you see our lives. I’ve never let a producer or director tell me what to do or think or what to say.”
Amber continues, “However, you don’t let them give you the ideas; you don’t let them make your story. And that’s what it becomes, especially after 9 years of this.”
Fun fact, Amber actually chose to go to prison. She shared the reason behind her difficult choice.
“I was in something called drug court and I was chewing on fentanyl patches. I went into court one day and I said, I want to go to prison.” Amber continued, “I said, ‘I wanna go to prison because this isn’t working. Nothing’s working.’”
Amber also struggles with a personality disorder. She was asked if she believed that her mental illness made her journey to sobriety more difficult.
“When I got out of prison I was sober from everything… I tried to do it myself for… two years,” Amber revealed. According to the star, she is still on a “low dose of medication,” but she is very proud of herself.
