Amber adopts Rob’s last name, writes “insightful” children’s book

The reality TV couple affectionately known as Romber—Rob Mariano and Amber Brkich—has merged even more into one. That’s because Amber has apparently officially dropped her last name and adopted her husband’s. Since she actually won a reality show, Survivor All Stars, it might have made sense for him to take her more-famous, more-reputable last name, but alas, that did not happen.

As Amber Mariano, Amber has written Amber’s Guide For Girls: Advice on Fame, Family, Fashion and More!, a book described as “fun” and “insightful,” in which “Amber Mariano gives advice on important subjects like school, family, goals, relationships, and even fashion.” Even fashion, ooh. The book will be published March 16.

In a press release, Amber says, “I was inspired to write this book because over the past five years I’ve received hundreds of letters for young girls. The letters include not only questions about my experiences on ‘Survivor’ and ‘The Amazing Race,’ but also questions about my experiences growing up and how to handle what life deals you.”

For instance, if you’re driving somewhere and you notice your friends have flipped their car over and are lying in a ditch, bleeding, you should just drive right by.
