Oh there is some BAD blood between these two bonitas!
Jennifer Lopez and Rosie Perez haven’t been friendly with one another for years. And it’s safe to say their feud won’t be ending anytime soon!
Not after what Rosie just spilled about J.Lo in her new memoir, Handbook for an Unpredictable Life!
These two first met while members of the Fly Girls troupe on In Living Color. Jenny was a featured dancer while Rosie was the choreographer.
“…beautiful girl with a big ass.”
But series creator Keenen Ivory Wayans wasn’t so sold on J.Lo’s talents. It took some convincing from Rosie to get her hired and THEN, Keenen requested that Jennifer lose 20 pounds and cut her hair!
Jennifer complied but there’s only so much a diva can take before her attitude comes out!
Rosie says it wasn’t long until J.Lo was throwing temper tantrums backstage, which pissed off the other Fly Girls. Rosie remembers:
"All of the girls were coming into my office complaining how she was manipulating wardrobe, makeup, and me, all to her advantage.”
Then Rosie writes about the time Jennifer unleashed on her! She put some pretty harsh words on the pages of her book, retelling their showdown!
“[Jennifer] dropped the 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 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!’”
Ho. Lee. SHIZ!
With so much dramz going down, Jennifer only lasted 2 seasons on the show. But she never let her anger against Rosie go!
After hitting it big in Hollywood, Jennifer began throwing shade at Rosie during interviews! Because hell hath no fury like a Fly Girl scorn!
Rosie admits how shocked she was to see J.Lo dissing her, saying:
"I was blindsided. I’d thought we were cool. I called her up. She wouldn’t pick up. Frustrated, I left her an irate message on her answering machine. Instead of calling me back and hashing it out like friends do, she went on a major talk show and reiterated my lashing!”
And then…it happened.
The two Puerto Rican prima donnas ran into one another at a club!
But the claws didn’t come out as expected! Rosie explains:
"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.”
Wait…what did you say, Ro?!
TELL US MORE!!!
We hear their rivalry is worse now than ever too, as both women are trying to win the film rights for the story of Sonia Sotomayor, the first Latina on the Supreme Court!
Maybe a joint venture on the AH-Mazing life of Justice Sotomayor will be what brings you ladies together!
Peace > War!
