If you remember, the 16-year-old gymnast won the Mirrorball Trophy with Val during the last season of Dancing With the Stars.
Amber was partnered up with Val’s brother Maks.
“He can do whatever he wants,” Laurie told People. “I mean, she’s a sweetheart. My mom really likes her.”
As for her own dating life, Laurie said, “I’m still waiting. I mean, I still don’t have time for it, but hopefully I’ll make time soon.”
