Patricia Heaton is back on Twitter, and the first thing she did upon her return was apologize to Sandra Fluke. Heaton had apparently deleted her account over the weekend after lobbing a series of tweet attacks at the Georgetown birth control advocate, but was back yesterday with the following post: "I apologized to Ms. Fluke last week. I may not agree with her views but I didn’t treat her with respect and I'm sorry. I was wrong. Mea Culpa."

Heaton's first apology was posted Saturday before her account was taken down, the Los Angeles Times reports: "Mea culpa Sandra! Wasn't being respectful 2 u re my tweets as I hope people wd b w/me. Don't like you being dissed -so sorry." Click for Heaton's original Fluke disses, which have been removed from her Twitter feed. (More Patricia Heaton stories.)
