The daytime talk show "The View" is apologizing for calling one of Tiger Woods' alleged girlfriends a "hooker." In a statement Friday, the show said Joy Behar's remark about Rachel Uchitel was a joke. But the show apologized for any hurt feelings or misimpressions.

Uchitel's lawyer, Gloria Allred, had demanded the apology. She said her client was upset by what she characterized as the "highly offensive" remark on Thursday's show.

Allred asked for an on-air retraction, but hasn't gotten it. Friday's episode of the talk show was taped before the apology was issued.
