The former My Name Is Earl actress, 33, was not only recently arrested on suspicion of DUI, but she's also headed for divorce from entertainment lawyer Simran Singh.
"People [are] thinking my divorce is happening because of the [DUI] situation," she tells Extra. "Truth is: These are all isolated incidents."
Pressly, who admits she is "human and never claimed to be perfect," wants to set the record straight on "ridiculously unkind and untrue" allegations so she can protect her child Desi, 3, whom she had with ex, Eric Cubiche.
"I don't ever want my son to grow up and read all these false statements," she says, adding that she and Singh "fell in love quickly. We got married very quickly. It didn't work out the way we wanted to. There's nothing more to it."
