“I think [Matt] helped me get completely over him,” she told 'OK! Magazine.' “It was months before that though that I actually made the decision to not want to have the relationship with Gary anymore. It was just really hard to move forward with somebody and trust another man and actually feel like I can love another person. I never thought I’d find somebody that I loved more than Gary, and obviously I was wrong. I love this man more than anything.”

The reality star seems happier than ever now that she's in a healthy relationship. The mother-of-one is reportedly planning a televised wedding with her beau, who popped the question last November.
“[Amber] really likes the idea of a TV wedding,” an insider told 'In Touch.' “It’s going to be such a special moment in her life and Amber really wants to share it with her fans.”
