Warning: This story contains spoilers from episodes 10 and 11 of Love Is Blind season 6.

Amber Desiree "AD" Smith is standing by her actions on Love Is Blind.

In the latest episodes of the Netflix hit series, AD, 33, confronted castmate Sarah Ann Bick after she reached out to Jeramey Lutinski following their breakup in the pods, despite him being engaged to Laura Dadisman.

The tense moment came at the group's lake outing, where AD pulled Sarah Ann, 30, aside and called her out for her "outlandish" actions, particularly for her choices to message Jeramey, 32, knowing he was engaged, and later to stay out with him until 5 a.m.

Though Sarah Ann stood by her actions, AD insisted she was in the wrong and was disrespectful towards Laura, 34. Now, AD is opening up to PEOPLE about that moment, saying she has no regrets about addressing the situation with Sarah Ann.

"I think it was important to speak to Sarah Ann about their situation, just simply because we had built such a strong connection as women," AD says. "Going through this journey, going through these dates, and these pods together, and then to experience that, and kind of break the group up a little bit, it really did hurt me."

"So, I wanted to get my point across and just let her know I didn't think that's a way to move about the situation," she continues. "So, I wouldn't have changed what I said. I said what I said."

Fans learned in episode 8 that Sarah Ann, who was Jeramey's other top choice in the pods, sent him an Instagram message once they got home to Charlotte, North Carolina. Her message read, in part: "If there's ever a chance your mind is shifting in your choice, I would love the opportunity to meet you, regardless of whatever way you go."

Jeramey ended up telling Laura about the message, though he said he never responded and only "liked it" to acknowledge he saw it.

Days later, however, Jeramey went out to the bars with some cast members and ran into Sarah Ann. The two ended up chatting all night and stayed out until 5 a.m., with Jeramey even dropping her off at her house before returning home to Laura.

Laura grew suspicious when he didn't come home at a reasonable hour or answer her messages. And though Jeramey insisted the next morning that he shared his location with his fiancée in good faith, she snapped when he started to lie about his whereabouts, which she had been tracking anyways and noticed they lined up with where Sarah Ann lives.

"I literally knew when I woke up at 5 a.m this morning, I was like, 'I would bet my f---ing bottom dollar that you were with Sarah Ann,'" Laura said during their blowout fight in episode 9. "I don't have anything else to say. I want out."

By episode 11, tensions between the couple were no better and Laura and Jeramey ultimately split at the cast BBQ.

AD then took it upon herself to defend Laura. Once Sarah Ann showed up to outing, she pulled her castmate aside and asked, "You don't think it's a little outlandish to tell a man who just got engaged that, 'Is the door still open?'"

Sarah Ann insisted, "In this scenario, no, because I'm realistic and I'm well aware of the situation." She also claimed Jeramey left "the door open" for a potential relationship and told her he was "breaking everything off" with Laura.

"My feelings deserve to be heard," she told AD.

But AD still wasn't convinced. "I think that's kinda crazy, Sarah... You know she's engaged to this man and [you're] not giving them a fighting chance," she said. "He did not choose you, so for you to circle back when he made his choice is crazy... At the very end of the day, you knew that they were engaged."

In a confessional, AD added, "I think it's weird that Sarah Ann thinks she did nothing wrong. I think infiltrating an engagement, whether they're happy or not, is not her place to do. And I thought it lacked class. And I'm Team Laura."

With Laura and Jeramey now done, only three couples remain engaged: Amy and Johnny, AD and Clay, and Chelsea and Jimmy. Brittany and Kenneth were the other season 6 couple who got engaged in the pods, but they called it off earlier this season when they realized they lacked a romantic connection.

Now, as the weddings loom, the pairs must decide whether they want to get married and prove love is truly blind, or end things for good.
