Nielsen: I made up with Jackie

Brigitte Nielsen has revealed that she made up with former mother-in-law Jackie Stallone after their Celebrity Big Brother encounter.

Best known for being the ex-wife of Sylvester Stallone and famously coming face-to-face with Jackie (who never liked her) on the Channel 4 show in 2005, Brigitte can now laugh about the meeting and says they have made up.

"In the end she apologised for everything she's said and done," the actress and former model said. "A couple of times I went to her house for dinner with my husband, Mattia. Sylvester was completely freaked out about it.

"I'm there having Thanksgiving dinner and the only one who's not there is Sylvester. It was bizarre. But what was so nice about it is that it's never too late to make things better."

Brigitte has just published her autobiography, You Only Get One Life, which highlights her various marriages (she's now with husband number four, Mattia Dessi, 15 years her junior), an affair with Arnold Schwarzenegger, her descent into alcoholism, suicide attempt and subsequent rehab.

The 47-year-old said of working on her memoirs: "When people think of Brigitte Nielsen, they think 'the one who was married to Sylvester with the big boobs', or 'the crazy one'. But there's also the mother and the real person in there.

"Writing the book was a healing process. Talking about the down times was an eye-opener."
