RHONJ's Jackie Goldschneider 'finally APOLOGIZED' to Teresa Giudice's daughter Gia, 20, for claiming she does cocaine
JACKIE Goldschneider reportedly apologized to Teresa Giudice's daughter Gia for claiming the 20-year-old does cocaine.
The RHONJ star, 44, wrongfully alleged that "she heard Gia snorts cocaine off of bathroom floors" during a recent episode of the Bravo show.
Jackie was slammed by Teresa and Gia for spreading the rumor – but defended her claims and insisted she was simply making an "analogy".
However, Teresa's attorney James J. Leonard Jr claimed Jackie privately apologized for her comments to the family.
“Jackie is a very smart woman, but what she did was incredibly stupid. Analogy or not, you’re referencing a young woman and putting her name in a sentence that includes the mention of drugs on national television, knowing that is a false statement," he told Page Six.
"My understanding is that Jackie and Gia did communicate this week and Jackie apologized and I do believe her apology was sincere."
He went on: "Gia is an amazing young woman and both of her parents are very proud of her. This should have never happened.”
Jackie made the claims in RHONJ's season 11 premiere, after Teresa claimed that Jackie's husband, Evan, cheats on her.
Teresa spread the rumor during Evan's birthday party, which Jackie later addressed in a one-on-one conversation.
"This weekend you took his name and what's most important to him in the world, being a great husband and father, and sh** all over it and you did it to all of our friends at his birthday party," Jackie raged to Teresa.
"I don't know if you made it up or if someone really told you, but you need to admit that whoever told you this doesn't know me and Evan and gave you no evidence of anything.
"You have to admit this was a lie."
Teresa argued it was "a rumor that I heard" and that she couldn't "say the person's name."
Jackie shot back: "I 'heard' that Gia snorts coke at the bathroom at parties! I heard it! I don't know who I heard it from. I heard it from somebody."
She explained that she only said it because she wanted Teresa to see how hurtful rumors were.
Teresa called Jackie a "f**king b**h" and stormed out of the room as she continued to cuss her out.
Gia responded to Jackie's claim on social media by retweeting Teresa's business manager's post.
It read: "I cannot fathom what would possess someone to create a false narrative that could have a severe consequence for the innocent party involved, a 19 year old at the time who was in no way involved in anything."
