She only apologized to him personally, not to the audience that she insulted.

Vice President Mike Pence said Monday he encouraged Joy Behar in a private phone to call to publicly apologize for saying he had a “mental illness” due to his Christian faith, saying it wasn’t about him but about millions of Christians who were offended by her comments.
Behar, a co-host on the ABC talk show “The View,” said last month that Pence suffered from “mental illness” because he felt Jesus talked to him, as described by recently fired White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman.
Behar’s comments drew outrage, and Pence slammed the sentiment as “just wrong.” Behar initially defended the remarks as a joke on the show, but Disney CEO Bob Iger later revealed Behar telephoned Pence to apologize.
Fox News host Sean Hannity addressed the saga while interviewing Pence Monday night, asking Pence to describe Behar’s phone call. Pence said his Christian faith was the most important thing in his life, and that like millions of other Americans, he and his wife spend parts of every day in prayer.
