  1. You forgot to mention that in 2020, she refused to leave her ex mother in laws house after visiting the kids and the Mother in Law and Sister in Law started a gofundme that went towards the lawyers fees needed to get her evicted from the house.

    • Lol the sis ended up steeling the money for who knows what and getti a restraining order on her, because it was based on libel defamation she wanted the money and fame amber got clearly


  2. She’s a real piece of work. It’s very rare for someone to need a medical exemption and if there is an exemption made, it’s usually for a patient with an advanced lung condition so severe they need extra oxygen. Even people with COPD can wear masks. There is nothing wrong with her and she should be ashamed of herself. She doesn’t deserve a penny.
