The View co-host Sherri Shepherd has denied that she's homophobic in a new interview.

When AM Tonight host Alicia Menendez asked Shepherd, “What is the biggest misconception about you?” Shepherd answered: “I think people don't know my heart. I think they feel I'm very judgmental. I think people feel I'm very homophobic.”

“Is it that you're anti-gay? What is it that people think?”

“You grow up being a Christian and you grow up believing homosexuality is a sin; you're going to hell if you're a homosexual. This is something that they teach in churches. So it's something I grew up believing.”

“I might not agree with your lifestyle, but I love you. You may not agree with my lifestyle, but you love me,” she said.

Shepherd added that she won't argue that being gay is a choice.

“If you tell me, 'Sherri, I was born gay,' okay I'm not going to argue with you, because I can't tell you how you feel and what's going on inside,” she said.
