Video

"I'm not really here to bash the industry. I am just here to tell what happened to me in the industry."

After beating out 10,000 girls to win Victoria Secret's model search competition, Kylie Bisutti had nearly reached the pinnacle of the modeling world.

However, the 23-year-old suddenly ditched showcasing skimpy lingerie and two-piece bathing suits in early 2012, announcing on Twitter she was quitting her career in the lucrative modeling world.

"I quit being a VS model to be a Proverbs 31 wife," Bisutti tweeted to her stunned fans.

Now, Bisutti is speaking out about her transition away from the Victoria Secret world.

"I don't regret anything that I have done because it's just the testament to how much I have changed since then," she told ABC's "Nightline."

"I only want to be sexy for my husband," Bisutti said, "You know, when we are alone. And so I don't want to go out in public and be that way for other men to see me."

Bisutti, who has also authored a memoir entitled "I'm no Angel," spoke candidly about the dark side of an industry she was once immersed in.

The 23-year-old said photos of her shoots found their way onto pornographic websites and recalled a moment where she was called a "fat cow" by her agency for weighing 118 pounds.

"It's part of the story... and it does show the change in me," she said. "I'm not really here to bash the industry. I am just here to tell what happened to me in the industry ... my agency calling me a 'fat cow' when I was a 118 pounds."

Bisutti now travels to churches sharing her story with young girls.

"I just want to tell you, you inspired me so much," one girl told her at a book signing.

In fact, Bisutti has even launched her own Christian clothes line, which allows women to showcase their faith while dressing in a stylish manner.
