Shots Fired: Rosie Perez Slams Jennifer Lopez For Being A “Ghetto Bitch”

Posted February 16, 2014


Wow!! In her new memoir titled Handbook for an Unpredictable Life actress Rosie Perez reveals that she and fellow latina star Jennifer Lopez have had a feud that spans over 20 years that all started on the set of In Living Color. According to RadarOnline:

They met on the set of In Living Color , where Perez was the choreographer and Lopez was auditioning to become one of the Fly Girl dancers.

Perez says she immediately noticed Lopez, who she recalled as a beautiful girl with “a big ass,” reports the New York Post. Show creator and host, Keenan Ivory Wayans, wasn’t a fan though.  She had to convince him to hire Lopez, who he thought was “chubby and corny.”

Perez soon regretted her support of Lopez.

“All of the girls were coming into my office complaining how she was manipulating wardrobe, makeup, and me, all to her advantage,” Perez writes.

Soon, Perez says, Lopez was going off on her like “some ghetto biatch, screaming and pounding her chest!”

The Won’t Back Down star writes that there are still hard feelings between her and the American Idol judge.

“We ladies of color all know how hard it is for us in the entertainment business,” Perez writes. “This kind of sh*t hurts us all and those that follow in our footsteps.”

NY Post was issued an exclusive excerpt from the book which further details the strained relationship between the two spicy personalities:

“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,” Lopez roared.

J.Lo left the show after two seasons but didn’t drop her beef — Perez says she made “disparaging comments” about her after hitting it big in Hollywood.

“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,” Perez writes.

Months later, the two bumped into each other at 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,” Perez writes without elaborating.

The two have apparently sparred over the film rights to the story of Sonia Sotomayor, the first Latina on the Supreme Court, according to the National Enquirer.
