'Chubby, Corny' Jennifer Lopez Brutally Slammed by Jealous Actress


jennifer lopezRosie Perez has a memoir coming out, and everybody knows the best way for a celeb to sell a memoir is to bash another celeb in said book. (See Tori Spelling's remarks about Katie Holmes.) In her upcoming tell-all, Handbook for an Unpredictable Life, Perez goes off on Jennifer Lopez, claiming that she was the one who discovered Jenny From the Block, not Keenan Ivory Wayans, like Lopez claims. Perez says Wayans didn't want Lopez as a Fly Girl on his show, In Living Color, because he thought she was "chubby and corny."

And if you think Perez stops there, you are sorely mistaken.

Perez went on to say that Lopez clashed with a lot of the other girls at the job. "All of the girls were coming into my office complaining how she was manipulating wardrobe, makeup, and me, all to her advantage," Perez wrote, claiming that Lopez thought the other girls were just "jealous." She then said that Jennifer dropped her "sweet girl act" and "went off" on Perez like "some ghetto biatch, screaming and pounding her chest." Perez claims Lopez screamed, "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 s**t! I know I’m good! I’m better than any of these girls, and you know it." Meow.

Perez also said that years later, Lopez approached her in a club, and tried to act like nothing happened. Perez said that she "killed Lopez with her biting tongue."

I'm not quite sure why Perez would include any of these tidbits in her book, because they kind of make her seem like the bad guy. She's saying that she picked on Lopez during In Living Color; she's calling her "chubby and corny," which is just plain mean; and she's saying that Lopez then tried to squash their issues years later, but she was having none of it. This isn't really anything to brag about.

But, hey, I guess if it sells books for Perez, mission accomplished, right, Rosie?

Do you think Rosie is being too harsh on Lopez?

Rosie allegedly quoted Keenan Ivory Wayans as saying she was "chubby & corny", but there is no evidence he actually said that.

sounds like Rosie is just jealous that Jennifer Lopez hit it big time and Perez was left in the dust

This writer is an idiot. Perez wrote (not "says") that Lopez claimed Perez picked on her, which is absolutely not an admission that she did single her out. Perez did not call Lopez "chubby and corny." Instead, she wrote that she backed Lopez after Wayans referred to Lopez as "chubby and corny." The writer also labels Perez as "jealous," as though relating a negative experience with an entity more famous than oneself is proof of jealously. I guess this writer is just jealous because Perez is a well-known actress with an actual book from a major publishing house and the writer is a dime-a-dozen gossip blogger who distorts statements to bend to her own narrative of Lopez fandom.

I think the whole story is entertaining. It is show business after all. I love imagining these two tough New Yorkers in verbal fisticuffs.

And who is Rosie Perez?

who cares who is right? where has rosie perez been the last 20 years? who knows? where has jlo been for the last 20 years? everywhere. that speaks for itself. i don't think anyone will care if she has a personal beef with jennifer lopez or throws some dirt around. who in the business was 100% angel while trying to make it? people don't get to the top without causing a little bit of a stir. and i'm glad she did. she's an amazing entertainer and i think she deserves where she is at, she worked hard for it.

Rosie Perez is just using Jennifer Lopez to get people to buy her book. This just makes her seem desperate and jealous of Jennifer Lopez's success. Rosie comes across as a bitter woman

Rosie oh Rosie dear.. Please use other methods of advertising and pushing your book. Leave Jen alone. Women empower each other while girls fight. Come on

Rosie Perez is a complete idiot! She was recently added to the View, just when I thought the View could get possibly worse. Those stupid hens sitting around a table spouting off about 'issues' and sounding like uneducated morons. Recently they made comments about the Catholic Church based on their 'assumptions' and without any factual basis. I guess that do that with most of their topics. A complete waste of space - I don't know how people can stand it.
