She said: "Everyone has difficulties, and I'm not using mine to justify my behavior. But looking back, I should have received help 20 years ago.

Two weeks before Celebrity Big Brother, I was in a car accident and the minute it happened I was on the defensive. I was hiding a huge collapse.

My mind had gone to the mush, I was getting flashbacks from the house fire and I was not thinking straight. I kept changing my mind and being erratic.

I was jumping to conclusions that were not accurate, but still I laughed and pretended. These invisible wounds were destroying me.

The actress was widely criticized after the incident and told the magazine she regrets that this has happened.

She said: "I absolutely regret what happened in the program, one hundred percent. I was monumentally wrong, and I'm sorry for Ryan and his family, for the pain I caused him and the others who were watching.

"I think it's important, when you've done something wrong, that you immediately keep your hands up and make sure everyone knows you're sorry."
