Joseline Hernandez, the self-proclaimed "Puerto Rican Princess" of VH1's "Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta" is known for going back and forth in verbal spats with her manager and on and off again boyfriend Stevie J.

During a recent interview with VLAD TV, the reality TV star and singer blames her usage of anti-gay slurs on the environment that she grew up in and called it a simple response to being called derogatory names.

"That's how we talk in Miami and I'm trying to work on that because actually my brother's gay. And I'm gay, I like women," Hernandez, who also explained why she called Stevie J gay on Twitter, said. "I don't ever want the gay community thinking that I do that, being disgusted or hating the gays. That's not even the case."

She went on to admit that she's wrong and shouldn't be using the language.

"It's sad. We shouldn't even be talking to each other like that," she said.
