Joy Behar Apologizes For Rachel Uchitel Joke

After jokingly calling Rachel Uchitel a “hooker” Thursday, an irritated Joy Behar read an apologetic statement directed toward Tiger Woods’ first reported mistress on Monday’s edition of The View.

Said Behar: “During a discussion on Thursday’s show about the alleged affair between Tiger Woods and Rachel Uchitel, I made a joke, I made a play on Ms. Uchitel’s name; this was intended, only as a joke and, I apologize for the choice of words, and for any [problem] the joke may have created.

“Even if the host said it in a joking way Rachel is not amused, because she values her reputation and her reputation has been damaged by this statement as it is completely false,” Allred said.
