The 31-year-old star performed stripteases from the age of 15, before gaining notoriety thanks to her relationship with ex-boyfriend Kanye West.
'It was so much fun'
Although many see the profession as degrading to women, Amber refuses to speak ill of it.
"Best time of my life. It was so much fun," she said on online TV show Kandi Koated Nights.
"Listen, I don't have any sob stories about me dancing - I had the time of my life."
Things haven't always been so good for Amber though. She split from her husband Wiz Khalifa last year after just over 12 months of marriage, with claims he was unfaithful.
Although Amber - who has two-year-old son Sebastian with her former spouse - filed for divorce in September, she is yet to fully move on, explaining she finds it hard to meet guys.
"I'm trying. I waited a long time for my husband to come home and he didn't," she explained.
"I swear on my child, no-one tries to get with me. When men meet me they're very intimidated by me."
She’s surprised no one tries to flirt with her on social media, explaining she rarely gets direct messages on things like Twitter.
That said, she has been out with a couple of guys, although it seems that things didn't go quite to plan.
"I'm all about chemistry, if it's not there, it's not there," she said.
Amber has appeared on TV, in films and released music, plus she's dipped her toes into the fashion world with modelling work. She isn't interested in combining a couple of those interests by starring on beleaguered show Fashion Police though. There are free spots on the panel following the exit of Kelly Osbourne and Kathy Griffin, but Amber doesn't seem to be a fan.
"No that is not true. No-one has reached out to me. Who am I to critique anyone?" she said.
