Rosie Perez Says Her And JLO Don’t See Eye-To-Eye
In her new memoir, “Handbook for an Unpredictable Life” actress and former “In Living Color” choreographer Rosie Perez revealed that she and former “Fly Girl” Jennifer Lopez haven’t seen eye-to-eye since their “In Living Color” days. In an excerpt published by the NY Post, Rosie reveals that she started out as a champion and supporter of J Lo (even convincing Keenan Ivory Wayans to hire her), but their relationship soured because of her ‘diva’ ways.
“All of the girls were coming into my office complaining how she was manipulating wardrobe, makeup, and me, all to her advantage,” Rosie says Jennifer even snapped on her one day, After J.Lo left the show, Rosie “thought” they were cool until Jenny From The Block blasted her in a magazine.
“I was blindsided,” writes Perez. “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,” Unfortunately, the two bumped into each other, months later, and it wasn’t pretty.
Also, Rosie revealed that Jennifer was asked to lose 20lbs before she was hired and some “In Living Color” cast-mates thought she was “corny.”
