MANILA, Philippines – After weeks of being tagged as the third party in the marriage of celebrity couple Cesar Montano and Sunshine Cruz, starlet Krista Miller finally broke her silence to defend herself against criticism.

In an exclusive interview with “The Buzz” aired on Sunday, Miller said she is totally clueless as to how and why this issue started.

Miller first made headlines when Cruz turned to social networking site Instagram to confront the actress, whose recent posts on the same image-sharing service show items allegedly given to her by Montano.

“Sobrang nagulat nung lumabas ang issue na ito. Hindi ako 'yung unang nakaalam. 'Yung mga friends ko, family ko, tinawagan nila ako about dun sa Instagram war na sinasabi nila. Totally blanko po ako talaga. Wala akong kaalam-alam sa binabato sa akin sa Instagram,” Miller told host Boy Abunda.

The 22-year-old Miller maintained that the items posted in her Instagram account were not from Montano.

“I have more than five suitors na puwedeng magbigay sa akin ng ganong regalo. Pero may pera ako, kaya kong bumili. Hindi ko hahayaan na pababain ang sarili ko nang dahil lang sa iPhone5,” she said.

Saying she does not even have Montano’s contact number, Miller also denied that she sent the actor-director some provocative messages and pictures of herself.

“Hindi ko po ugaling mag-send ng pictures lalo na kung walang dahilan. Kung mayroon pong nakita sila na sinasabing picture ko, wala po akong kinalaman doon. Hindi po ako nagpapadala ng kahit anong pictures at any provocative messages po kay direk Cesar,” she said.

Reiterating that none of Cruz’s accusations are true, Miller said she and Montano never had a romantic relationship.

“Hindi po. He's my director. I respect him. He loves his family, hindi po para bigyan niya ako ng motibo. Alam kong pamilyado siyang tao para magbigay din po ako ng motibo sa kanya. Iginagalang ko po iyon,” she said.

Miller said Montano is the type of director who cares for all his fellow actors and crew.

“Kung ano ang trato niya sa isa, trato niya sa lahat. 'Yung pagiging maasikaso niya, maalaga niya, binibigyan niya ng pagkain, everybody in ‘Turning Cradle’ knows that,” she said.

While admitting that Montano is attractive, Miller stressed that the actor is not her type of guy.

According to Miller, it is also not true that she stayed in a hotel with Montano when the actor and Cruz had a misunderstanding.

“Hindi ko po nga alam na doon [sa Manila Hotel] pala natutulog si direk. Nagshu-shoot po kami doon kasi malapit lang po yung mga location namin doon at nagkaroon ng eksena na doon mismo sa hotel. Hindi ko alam na doon mismo natutulog si direk. Nung nabalita na doon nga natutulog, napanood ko iyon eh, na kasama raw ako sa hotel. Natawa na lang po ako,” she said.

Miller also shrugged off rumors that this issue came about just to promote their upcoming movie together.

“Siguro po hindi naman po makitid ang utak ni direk para idamay ang family niya para sa publicity ng film. Siguro itong lumalabas na issue na ito, hindi ko alam saan nanggaling ito, hindi ko alam kung anong pinaghugutan nito,” she said.

After being called a home-wrecker and a mistress, Miller said she just considers this a challenge.

“Ang sigurado lang po ako, itong challenge na ito sa akin, naging challenge ito sa akin. Masakit,” she said.

“Nagalit ako. Sumama ang loob ko. Pero inisip kong maigi, inintindi kong maigi, inunawa ko siya. Dapat ba akong magalit kay Sunshine, kay Cesar, sa mga tao? Tinatanong ko ang sarili ko pero hindi eh. Bakit ako magagalit kung wala namang katotohanan lahat. Sumama lang po ang loob ko dahil sa mga binabato nila sa akin. Hindi ko alam kung saan nila pinupulot ang mga impormasyon na ultimo pamilya ko nadadamay na,” she added.
