But in spite of her experiences, she stressed that she did not regret leaving showbiz.
“I think its halfway knowing who you are. Always remember to be humble,” Kim said.
She added: “That [past] is like my Fantasy Island. Like, sometimes, I ask myself: Was I really a celebrity?’ Then, when I look at my old stuff, I say ‘Is this really me?'”
It was in 2004 when Kim delos Santos moved to the US after her split with husband Dino Guevarra.
At present, she is working as a nurse there.
