Behar said, "You-ka-tell she's a hooker."

After the show aired, Uchitel's attorney, Gloria Allred, issued a statement "demanding a retraction" and calling the joke "defamatory and highly offensive."

The rep added, "This was intended as a joke. We sincerely apologize for the choice of words and for any misimpression the joke may have created."
