In's exclusive sit-down with Amber, she revealed that it was Matt Baier, to whom she's now engaged, that helped her and Gary finally get over each other after being on and off for seven years. "I think Matt helped me get completely over him," she said. "It was months before that though that I actually made the decision to not want to have the relationship with Gary anymore. Matt has helped a lot when it comes to both of us actually moving on."
