Teresa Giudice’s Family Lawyer Says Jackie Goldschneider Apologized To Gia Giudice For Drug Analogy; Says “I Do Believe Her Apology Was Sincere”

Teresa Giudice’s lawyer, James J. Leonard Jr., reveals that Jackie Goldschneider has apologized to Gia Giudice for making a drug analogy about her during the Season 11 premiere episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Leonard Jr. released a statement via Page Six, “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. My understanding is that Jackie and Gia did communicate this week and Jackie apologized and I do believe her apology was sincere. Gia is an amazing young woman and both of her parents are very proud of her. This should have never happened.”

If you recall, Teresa claimed she heard Evan Goldschneider is being unfaithful to his wife. Jackie subsequently compared the rumors to telling people Gia does “coke in the bathroom” at parties. 

Following the episode, Gia broke her silence on Twitter. She wrote, “Saying it was an analogy is making it excusable, it’s not. My character is now being questioned. My name was used to make a point. No one should be used in that way, I am suffering the consequences for such an outlandish and untrue statement. While her marriage is happy & in tact.”

Dina Manzo sent her support to the Giudices and demanded Goldschneider to make a public apology to Gia.

“I did NOT watch, but I totally agree,” Manzo wrote. “A Grown woman should not use that analogy about a minor EVER, especially about our beautiful @_giaguidice. Jackie needs to make a public apology immediately.”

Jackie, for her part, insists that she was “wasn’t starting a rumor about Gia.”

She previously told Us Weekly, “I was giving an analogy. I think that almost everyone will say that that’s an analogy and the truth is that there’s no one else in Teresa’s life that I can make her understand. When you say something about someone you love, whether or not it’s true, it hurts, you know? So, I don’t regret that because if I was saying something nasty about Gia, then I would regret it. But I was giving an analogy, which it was pretty clear to almost everyone.”
