Here are a few excerpts from the interview:

On the infamous straight edge threat:

“There was no straight edge.  The only thing I can say to that is if you go back and watch the moment,  You see me pull the Vaseline out, you see me pull the boots out. You don’t even see my face when the word straight edge comes out because, not only did I not have a straight edge that day, I didn’t say straight edge that day.  But, it was me that said straight edge.  It was a separate conversation where I was talking about what my props were going to be in the monologue. So, that was an audio clip that was edited.  And I’ve avoided using the word edited because everybody goes so ham when they say you scream editing.  But that was editing at it’s finest, or maybe not?”

On the production company and some of the Divas perpetuating that she is violent:

“What they say now, is literally whether or not they decide to perpetuate something that is not true and I just have to go hard on saying that it is a lie.  And I don’t want to call anybody else a liar but if they’ve agreed to perpetuate that then there’s really nothing else to say.  Because when you’re talking about trying to say that I am the kind of person that if I decide that I don’t like a person or I’m upset with a person that I could bring myself to a point to slice them or cut them or stab them.  And that is irresponsible to me.  That’s irresponsible on the part of any other artist that would agree to perpetuate that.  That’s irresponsible on the part of any network that would perpetuate that.  That’s irresponsible on the part of any production company that would edit that or perpetuate that. Because I am still a working woman in this business. And I have to be able to work by my name and my reputation.  So, when you tell somebody that I am the type of person that would go out and stab somebody or cut somebody, if I can’t have my way? That’s crazy! That’s not even..she snapped!  That’s saying I can’t have my way, so I was going to cut somebody over it!”

    Kelly quit making excuses for your behavior. Your ego was out of control the whole time. Learn from this experience and try to change your behavior in the future. It wasn’t editing, it was you! Maybe this was the wake up call you needed.

    Interesting interview, she was definitely coached in the part about “that is irresponsible to me” part (2:30). If you watch her during that portion she looks up almost like she is looking at a teleprompter or trying to remember what was written on paper. Also when the interviewer asks her if she was pulling them out of her bag to say they were her props she for a moment she looks very sad (3:59), almost like she was going to cry. I will take that as guilt and that there was ulterior motives. At 4:36 the interviewer asks her a question and she answers yes, but if you look at her she shakes her head no slightly.

    I believe her about the straight edge editing based solely on how she looks and sounds when she is speaking as well as the other cast members never speaking on the straight edge during their interviews, but that is about all I believe in this portion of the interview. She is trying too hard to maintain her composure when she is being asked questions. I believe that she was trying to intimidate with the Vaseline and Timberlands and now because of the fallout she has to fix her situation. She better call Olivia Pope to tell her that she should just confess and apologize and she will regain the respect of the fans she lost.
