Chris Brown Latest Star to Say 'I'm Sorry'

"Part of good manners is you shouldn't talk about people," Cole added. "Even in comedy, it can get you in trouble."

Raffaello Follieri

Actress Anne Hathaway's swindling ex-boyfriend Raffaello Follieri offered a courtroom apology just before he was led to jail in October on federal fraud charges.

In an emotional statement made in Italian inside the courtroom, Follieri said, "I have dishonored my family name, and I have embarrassed the church that I love. I will never be able to wash away the stain, and I will have to live with it for the rest of my life."

And, in a reference possibly aimed at Hathaway, he added, "I just hope that someday, those who have been hurt by my action will one day forgive me."

"It happens all the time -- you did something wrong and you want people to forgive you," Cole said. "That is you wanting to be absolved for your error."

In Follieri's case, what's even better than an apology is his promise to pay back $3.6 million that he conned out of others.
