Joy Behar made a play on Ms. Uchitel’s name.  This was intended as a joke.  We sincerely apologize for the choice of words and for any misimpression the joke may have created,” said Karl T. Nilsson the Executive Publicity Director of The View.

Tiger's Mistress Demands Retraction, Says She's No Hooker!

Behar, on of “The View” hosts, said on air: “You-ka-tell she’s a hooker.”

On Thursday, Allred quickly fought back on behalf of her client (who was the first named mistress of Tiger Woods) and asked for a retraction.

“This statement about Ms. Uchitel is false and defamatory and highly offensive to her. Rachel is very upset by the statement which has been viewed and now read all around the world.” said Allred.

“This statement was very hurtful to Rachel because it’s not true.  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.”
