PATSY Palmer begged her fans to stop fighting over her dramatic Good Morning Britain appearance in which she shut down the interview.
The former EastEnders actress also insisted that her 2007 book, All Of Me, does not describe herself as "addict to wellness guru", which was the phrase used on the ticker of her chat with Ben Shephard and Susanna Reid.
Patsy stormed off air after spotting the wording on-screen during the late night chat from her home in Malibu yesterday.
Addressing infighting among her Instagram followers over the appearance, Patsy wrote: "Everyone stop arguing on here I can clear up your arguments.
"You have five mins to talk about exactly what they promise to talk about. If you have to start explaining yourself about something that shouldn’t be on there in the first place the interview is over! That’s one point cleared up.
"Second there’s no quote in any book that ever said 'addict to wellness guru' anywhere ever – that’s that point cleared up.
"Third I wasn’t on there to promote a book about anything. As human beings that are supposed to thrive and improve we should never be defined by our past not even by ourselves let alone anyone else .
"Fourth don’t fight each other, find each other and stand together to stop this from happening again and again. If you are fighting each other you are totally missing the point here."
The 48-year-old star took to social media yesterday after her interview to tell her fans that she did not want to speak about her "old self" and had planned to chat about her new business venture.
The TV star wrote: "My apologies to anyone that wants to hear good news as I have great faith that considering what is going on in the world right now there are still some people that do.
"I keep seeing people saying 'get over yourself', I have gotten over my old self years ago and no longer wish to discuss it when I only have five minutes' air time."
The iconic actress explained that she did not want to spend her"precious five minute" interview chatting about her past addiction issues or news like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
She said: "I have been a people pleaser my whole life. I am not going to waste those precious five minutes talking about things that are 20 years old or about Meghan and Harry.
"If I do post things on social media in reaction to a TV show or an article I've read about something that's my platform."
In a furious rant the TV star then slammed trolls who have targeted her saying they could "f*** themselves".
The actress did a "Piers Morgan" – one week after he stormed off the show.
She simply told hosts Ben Shephard and Susanna Reid: "I'm not doing this interview, I don't want to do it.
"It's not okay to have that at the bottom of the screen, I'm not going to talk to you."
Susanna and Ben quickly apologised, insisting that they didn't mean for it to be offensive as they asked for her to stay.
But Patsy refused to listen – switching off her camera so that the screen went black.
The screen cut out as Ben clarified: "That was obviously a quote from Patsy's book and it certainly wasn't our intention…"
Susanna interjected: "I had no idea that was on our screen, that's a terrible shame – our apologies to Patsy.
"She's entitled not to do the interview, and we carry on."
Patsy has been open about her 20-year addiction to drug and booze in the past, having admitting to first drinking alcohol at the age of eight.
She also said that she began sniffing solvents aged 11, and snorted cocaine for the first time at 13.
The actress said that during her 1990s stint on EastEnders she'd regularly turn up to work high or hungover.
In 2010, she proudly revealed that she had been clean of drugs and alcohol since September 2004.
