Actress/dancer Rosie Perez is reportedly spilling the beans on her feud with Jennifer Lopez in her new memoir, “Handbook for an Unpredictable Life.”
When the two Hispanic superstars first met in 1991 in an open-call for “The Fly Girls,” the dancers on the famous comedy sketch show, “In Living Color,” Perez, who was the show’s choreographer, said she noticed J.Lo as a beautiful girl with a “big a**.” Show creator Keenan Ivory Wayans wasn’t feeling Jenny at the time — calling her “chubby and corny” — but Perez soon convinced him to give her a shot as a “fly girl.”
But, things quickly turned sour backstage as Jennifer released her diva antics. Perez recalls dancers “coming into my office complaining how she was manipulating wardrobe, makeup, and me, all to her advantage.”
When she confronted Lopez, Perez said she “went off” like “some ghetto biatch, screaming and pounding her chest!” Perez wrote in her memoir what Jennifer allegedly said:
““You pick on me, me and only me, every f–king day! Every f–king day! I work my ass off, deliver and you keep pushing me aside, treating me like sh-t! I know I’m good! I’m better than any of these girls, and you know it.”
Well, it looks like Jenny isn’t exactly the “same girl” she was before the fame. Oh, well.
