Kim Woodburn hopes Coleen Nolan "gets back on her feet".
The Nolan Sisters singer has taken a hiatus from "Loose Women" and cancelled plans for a solo tour following a backlash after she clashed with her "Celebrity Big Brother" co-star - with whom she has a long-running feud - on the daytime panel show in August.
But Kim insists she wasn't expecting the "hurtful" row between them because she went on the programme to try to resolve their differences, and despite their rivalry, she has no desire for anything bad to happen to Coleen.
She told new! magazine: "I was asked to do "Loose Women" and didn't think it would turn out like it did - very hurtful.
"I was shocked as much as anybody else that it happened.
"I was told that it was a reconciliation on Coleen's behalf.
"I don't know if the producers didn't tell her or if they conned both of us to get us on.
"I don't wish her any harm and I'm sorry she has no job on "Loose Women".
"I can say, hand on heart, that I didn't cause it and I hope, in time, she gets back on her feet."
Coleen and Kim had been at loggerheads ever since they starred on the Channel 5 reality show last year, and fans had tuned into "Loose Women" hoping to see the pair reconcile, but were left shocked when 76-year-old Kim branded Coleen "lying trash" and a "piece of filth" before storming off the set after a heated row.
When some critics then took Kim's side and blasted Coleen on social media, she was reduced to tears during a live TV interview, and said she considered walking away from her showbiz career entirely.
She recently said: "I don't know what I did wrong? I didn't say anything. I said about two things. She needs help. I feel terribly sorry for her.
"I've never called her names. She's called me every name under the sun. But to be called a bully ... and then to have messages going, "Why can't you die like your sister?" "Can't you get cancer like your sister?"
"In 50 years of doing a job I really love ... there's a campaign to get me fired. They sent me revolting things to the point where I phoned my management and said to my kids, "I can't."
"I cancelled everything last week after it. I just said, "I can't do it, I don't want to do it anymore." "
