The show shared an exclusive clip from the segment ahead of its arrival, where Amber spoke about being unfairly portrayed on social media and her thoughts regarding the jury's verdict.

"Even if you think that I'm lying," she said: "You still couldn't look me in the eye and tell me on social media there's been a fair representation. You cannot tell me that you think this has been fair."

In late May Johnny won his lawsuit against Amber following a six-week trial that was live-streamed online. Johnny's $50m defamation case against Amber stemmed from a 2018 op-ed article she wrote for The Washington Post in which she said she was a "public figure representing domestic abuse."

While the piece did not identify Johnny by name, his attorneys said it "incalculably" damaged his career, costing him acting roles. She then countersued him for $100million.

The jury also awarded Amber $2million after finding that Johnny had defamed her through his attorney.
