Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Teresa Giudice said she had an epiphany while filming Celebrity Apprentice: she needs to take responsibility for herself and apologize to every damn body! Not necessarily in private, but via In Touch magazine. This isn’t a big surprise because Teresa frequently covers In Touch. She sells photos of her family (which she says is to document the family,) and then speaks out about the drama between herself and her brother and friends on the show. She also did an interview about her husband Joe Giudice’s possible impending jail sentence over a fraudulent driver’s license. That’s the interview she fought with her brother with on the show because in the mag, she said that she would be totally alone without Joe.
Now, in the mag she says she realized she needs to apologize to set an example for her four daughters: 11-year-old Gia (G-to-the-EEE-A,) 7-year-old Gabriella, 6-year-old Milania, and 2-year-old Audriana.
UPDATE - It has been revealed Teresa was paid thousands of dollars for her “apologies” by In Touch. CLICK HERE to find out exactly how much and who the surprising source for the amount is!
Here’s the gist of Teresa’s apology letters to In Touch, which is on newsstands right now:
She’s sorry she didn’t resolve things sooner, or respond to Jacqueline’s apology on Twitter. She wants them to be like Lucy and Ethel (again.)
She’s sorry she compared Caroline to the Olive Garden (which is a compliment, depending on who you ask,) and she wants them to get along again.
Joe and Melissa Gorga
First, she’s sorry she hasn’t been excited about Melissa’s singing career. Also, she’s sorry the fighting with her brother has broken their parents’ hearts. Life is too short to fight on national television, tabloids, and the internet.
She’s sorry she said Kathy was dead to her. She loves her.
Oh yeah, and Teresa also has a new cookbook coming out. We’re not sure if there are any recipes for gossip in it, like in her others.
Teresa and Jacqueline also tweeted about a phone call they shared after some long phone tag. Teresa seemed very optimistic about it, but Jacqueline was less positive about their phone call, calling Teresa’s desire for reconciliation a PR stunt, and saying Teresa insulted her husband.
@jaclaurita & I talked on the phone & agreed to take baby steps back to our friendship. xxI love how deeply you guys love all of us!

4give me4being upset,I wanted2believe the apology was sincere.When I called her,it got intense w/rehashing past.Thought she wanted2move4ward
Do you think these apologies are sincere, or as Jacqueline suspects, a publicity/image ploy? Truthfully she seems very sad on the show, like she’s lost and in way over her head. As her brother aptly pointed out “Teresa is in serious denial about life.”
