Rosie Perez Slams Jennifer Lopez in New Memoir
Rosie Perez revealed a feud with Jennifer Lopez in her new memoir "Handbook for an Unpredictable Life", which is out on February 25. Perez first met Lopez at an open casting call in New York in 1991 when she worked as a choreographer on "In Living Color".
According to an excerpt obtained by New York Post, Perez claimed that she noticed Lopez's talents but the show's host and creator Keenan Ivory Wayans did not want to hire her, allegedly calling the "Jenny From the Block" singer "chubby and corny." The actress went on saying that she contributed to Lopez being cast in the show.
"All of the girls were coming into my office complaining how she was manipulating wardrobe, makeup, and me, all to her advantage," Perez claimed after Lopez was in, but the singer said that they were just "jealous." The "Pineapple Express" star then said that Lopez dropped her "sweet-girl act" and "went off" like "some ghetto biatch, screaming and pounding her chest!"
"You pick on me, me and only me, every f**king day! Every f**king day! I work my a** off, deliver and you keep pushing me aside, treating me like s**t! I know I'm good! I'm better than any of these girls, and you know it," Lopez allegedly said at that time. She left the show after two seasons to pursue other career opportunities.
After Lopez was successful, Perez said that the singer made "disparaging comments" about her in Hollywood. However, the singer talked to her like nothing happened when one day they met in a club. "Jennifer came over to me, smiling, saying hello as if nothing had happened. I should've let it go, played it off, too. Instead, I killed her with my biting tongue," she wrote.
