Mea culpa! Rick Sanchez apologizes to Jon Stewart

October 5, 2010 | 12:49 pm

Sanchez Love means never having to say you're sorry -- because, sometimes, your wife can do it for you.

On Monday, Suzanne Sanchez, who's married to former CNN newscaster Rick Sanchez, noted on her Facebook page that her husband had made amends with Jon Stewart after calling him a "bigot" during a radio interview.

"rick apologized to jon stewart today," wrote the mother of Sanchez's four children. "they had a good talk. jon was gracious and called rick 'thin-skinned.' his exhaustion from working 14 hr days for 2 mo. straight caused him to mangle his thought process inartfully. he got caught up in the banter and deeply apologizes to anyone who was offended by his unintended comments."

For his part, Sanchez remains silent about the ordeal, though more than 150,000 people follow him on Twitter, waiting for him to comment. His last tweet -- dated Sept. 30, before he was fired -- marks a bygone era. "great shows today," it says, "last night on air... great numbers... yeah."
