Amber took to Twitter to explain her erratic behavior — and hinted that she had fallen off the sobriety wagon in a since deleted tweet.
“No matter what struggles I went through a year ago on MBC..I’m now happy, healthy and sober. The struggles & anger I went through are real & I’m happy to have ended such a horrific time in my life! Ready to live life clear headed and full of love. The future is finally bright,” Amber tweeted.
The reality star then confirmed that she had been “heavily drinking” — combining the booze with mental illness medications.
“I was heavily drinking on top of my bipolar and borderline medication. Obviously something you shouldn’t do with medications like that. However it happened and I went through hard times in order to be truly happy finally,” Amber wrote.

Amber is appearing on the relationship rescue show with ex, Matt Baier — a former MTV regular. Shortly after filming the show, the couple split for good and Amber hooked up with Bootcamp production hand, Andrew Glennon. The couple is now expecting their first child together.
Amber has always claimed that pill addiction was her struggle — not alcohol. However, the fact that the messy reality star hit the bottle to manage stress, might point to a shifting story.
Do you believe that Amber’s behavior points to trouble ahead — or has she found her forever happily-ever-after?
