Amber on why she and Matt are together:
“First of all because he’s a bad a** mother f***er. Come on now, everything I’ve been through you think I’m going to be with some… I’m naive? I get that all the time, “You’re so naive…” We’ve broken up I don’t know how many da*n times… He’s been back to Massachusetts a couple times, came back because we love each other… Either you move on because someone did something in their past or you stay with them.”
