Hornery explained he apologised to Jacenko for the mean-spirited stories he'd written about her personal life in the past.
'Admittedly, I have described her as a "publicity-seeking missile" on more than one occasion,' he said, adding that Jacenko had once responded to his jibes by calling him a 'bitter and twisted old man'.
He also apologised for the way he reported on her breast cancer diagnosis in 2016.
At the time, Hornery had accused the PR mogul of using her health battle to drum up publicity, especially after she had a tumour removed on 60 Minutes.
Ex-Apprentice drops defamation case against Trump
Mr Trump declares himself "totally vindicated" as Summer Zervos abandons her long-running lawsuit.Summer Zervos, an ex-contestant on The Apprentice, accused Mr Trump of groping her in a Los Angeles hotel room as she asked him for career advice in 2007.
'It is topic which I admit I owe her a long overdue apology after cynically reporting on the media attention before 60 Minutes filmed her surgery,' he wrote.
The pair's decision to make peace comes three years after Hornery and Jacenko clashed in a highly publicised media slanging match.
In May 2018, the writer mocked the publicist for wearing a powder blue 'mullet' dress designed by Velani to the Gold Dinner fundraiser in Sydney.
Hornery remarked upon Jacenko's ensemble after she returned it to its Five Dock shop shortly after wearing it on the red carpet.
Under the headline, 'Mullet Dress Swims Upstream', Hornery wrote: 'Barely 48 hours after it had hung from the fake-tanned frame of one Roxy Jacenko, the over-the-top Italian tulle "mullet" dress was back in the window of Five Dock "couturier" Velani.'
The mother of two swiftly hit back, telling Daily Mail Australia at the time: 'Heavens, he really is a bitter old man.'
Spider-Man No Way Home: Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield confirmed in the trailer?
The release date of Spider-Man No Way Home is 15 December 2021, but Marvel already has to offer us a nice surprise. This Tuesday, November 16, 2021, the studio has posted the new trailer of the film carried by Tom Holland, Zendaya and Benedict Cumberbatch.
Days later, Hornery returned fire by sharing a photo to Instagram of a western Sydney fashion boutique alongside the caption: 'Fairfield "couturier" Rose's - sadly no sign of any mullets.'
Hornery went on to criticise Jacenko for claiming her 'mullet' dress was a 'one off' design, insisting the frock was in fact very similar to one recently worn by Italian designer and model Chiara Ferragni.
Jacenko responded to this by posting a picture of yet another 'mullet-style' dress, sarcastically writing in the caption: 'How on earth did you miss this one?'
She added: 'Oh wow, I'll be damned - another mullet frock - maybe we can go week four from four with the stories in your column, Andrew?'
