It looks like Matt Baier finally realized that he totally screwed up his relationship with Amber Portwood. The pair broke up several months ago while they were filming Marriage Boot Camp: Family Edition, and he made a startling admission about his hopes after he left filming early.

After Matt left the set, he traveled to Las Vegas, instead of back to the home he shared with Ambs in Indianapolis. "That would have been too painful," he admitted to E! News. "So I went to Vegas to get my head around the split. Ultimately, my hope was to get a place where Amber could come visit me and we could work on our issues. Obviously, that didn't happen."

Um, yeah. Amber got a new boyfriend (one she reportedly met on the MBC) and never looked back. Now that she seems happy in her new relationship, Matt seems to be holding on to his 15 minutes of fame as tightly as possible.

Matt confessed that he now realizes that he was the problem in their relationship. "I'm trying to do a lot of work on myself because I realize now the downfall of our relationship was my fault," he explained. "When you're thrust into the spotlight like that, it can affect you. My mistake was taking our relationship for granted." 

He continued, "What I've learned from this is you have to do the work. You have to make the person you're with feel loved every single day. I forgot to do that and now I'm paying the price."

Excuse us while we play the tiniest violin of sadness for Matt. So sorry you didn't recognize what you had, but it's too little, too late. He even admitted that he wishes he could have a "do-over" with Portwood.

"I would do everything differently. I should have listened to her more," he said. "I'll hold out hope for a reconciliation. But if nothing else, I hope we can stay friends. We started off as best friends and that's what I miss the most from her -- her friendship. To not have that is painful. When something happens, my natural instinct still is to call her and tell her everything. She was my family."

Sorry, Matt, but we wouldn't hold our breath if we were you. She gave you too many chances already.
