Her friend asked if she worries about her husband's choice of drug being so "lethal" and that "just doing it one time can kill" him and she responded, "Yeah, it's terrifying. There is not one thing I can do to prevent it, if he wanted it, he can go get it. It's scary as f**k."

He sent me a message yesterday saying when you're done with your man, your husband is ready to come home." Both Cate and her friend replied, "Ew!"

During a dinner date, Amber and Andrew discussed the future and having more kids! "I always said that I was never going to have kids.
