ABC's "The View" issued an apology Friday after a remark made on the show about Tiger Woods' alleged mistress, Rachel Uchitel.

"During a discussion on yesterday's 'The View' about the alleged affair between Tiger Woods and Rachel Uchitel, Joy Behar made a play on Ms. Uchitel's name," the show said in a written apology. "This was intended as a joke. We sincerely apologize for the choice of words and for any misimpression the joke may have created."

The apology came after a joke made by "View" co-host Joy Behar on Thursday's show, in which she used the word "hooker" while referring to Uchitel. Uchitel's attorney Gloria Allred demanded an apology in response to the comment.
