Following her felony arrest Saturday, the mug shot of the one-time TV sex symbol circulated around the Internet, with many speculating her disheveled appearance reflected years of hard living.
“My poor mother has to look at that picture of me!” Kelly, 42, complained in the disconcerting chat. “That doesn’t look like me — it’s not me!”
Kelly, who played alongside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis on the TV hit, said she was “absolutely not” under the influence of drugs at the time the mug shot was snapped.
“This is all a bunch of made-up stuff!” Kelly, who’s out on $50,000 bail, told GMA.
Kelly said that while she’s currently three months sober, she’s had her past battles with the bottle.
“I had lost a baby, as a result of that, I lost everything,” she said. “And I was abusing alcohol, which I no longer do. With the 70s show, I was guilty — of the drinking problem — and I ran. And I am not running from this. And I have paid my dues.
“And if I can make it through this,” she bellowed, “I can make it through everything!”
Kelly two years ago was arrested in North Carolina and charged with a DUI she pled later guilty to.
