Jewelry designer John Hardy, whose career has been rocked by accusations of plagiarism, is on the mend after a CBS interview about her jewelry collection on Thursday.
The interview, which aired Thursday night, was part of a partnership between CBS and The Good Wife creator Julie Plec.
Hardy, who is known as the “bad mother” on the show, admitted to having used her own designs, saying, “I did try to make my own jewelry.”
Plec has said Hardy is not a part of her company, and has accused the star of stealing her trademark jewelry designs.
Plec’s statements came after Hardy told ABC News she was sorry, and said, “The only thing I did wrong was not tell Julie that I had taken her jewelry.”
In an interview with ABC News’ David Muir in September, Plec said, “‘Good Wife’ was an experiment, an attempt to try to see what happens with people and what happens to them.”
She also said she was shocked by Hardy’s admission.
“I said to Julie, ‘John, what do you think of the way that you did this?’
And he said, ‘I never thought of it that way.'”
Plec went on to say she didn’t think it was a coincidence.
“The fact that you’re in the business of trying to figure out how to make jewelry is not something that you should be doing,” Plec told Muir.
“But that’s how you live your life, is how you think about it.”
Pleca’s statements prompted Hardy to release a statement in which he apologized for his actions and acknowledged he did not steal any of her designs.
“While I cannot make any further comment at this time, I can tell you that I am sorry if I have offended anyone,” Hardy said.
“My intent in stealing was never to disrespect Julie and her brand.”
Hardy is currently filming a second season of the CBS drama.
