Former sexy actress Criselda Volks admitted in an exclusive interview on "The Buzz" Sunday that she was the girl in sex videos that are being circulated on the Internet and cellular phones.

Volks, who was in tears during the interview, said it was a "personal video" between her and her former boyfriend of five years and it should not have been circulated in the first place.

"Kami ‘yon ng boyfriend ko ng five years. Kami ang magkasama so automatically siyempre nagvi-video-han kami. So, it was supposed to be a video na hindi kumalat. It’s a personal video," she said.

"Alam ko na basically kung anong laman ng video. Nakita ko ‘yong video sa phone at that time… matagal na ‘yon pero hindi ko inisip na lalabas ‘yon," she added.

She believed that her former boyfriend was not behind the scandal because "we love each other up to now."

"I don’t regret making the video because it was supposed to be a personal file, personal namin ‘yon. Sumasama ang loob ko doon sa naglabas ng video," she said.

She did not say though who leaked the videos on the Internet.

She also vehemently denied speculations that she sleeps around in exchange for money to finance her alleged addiction to gambling. Volks, who attempted to commit suicide last year, said she stopped going to casinos as well as her other vices when she entered a rehabilitation facility.

"For almost three years, hindi na ako nagka-casino. When I went to a rehab a year ago, I stopped everything. Hindi na ako nagsusugal, hindi na ako nag-sleeping pills, hindi ko na din tina-try i-kill ang sarili ko," she said.

She added that she can financially support her son to former actor Cris Villanueva without having to "sell herself."

She said she is now collating all malicious reports about her to use these as evidence when she files a case in court as she vowed to "fight all the way."

The former sexy actress, meanwhile, appealed to the public not to judge her, saying she is the victim in this scandal.

"Sana huwag na lang akong pandirihan dahil biktima lang ako. Ako naaawa ako sa sarili ko, sana maawa din kayo. Na-down po yong moral ko ‘yong dignidad ko sobrang down na down na.

"Lalaban po ako and I just hope huwag nila akong husgahan… hindi po ako masamang tao, hindi ako nagbebenta ng laman. Hindi ako masamang tao, mabait po ako," she said.

She also admitted that she has a girlfriend who is helping her weather all the issues being hurled against her. "There is someone helping me guiding me through this. She’s making life easier for me."
