Rosie Perez documents her longstanding feud with Jennifer Lopez in her upcoming memoir, Handbook for an Unpredictable Life: How I Survived Sister Renata and My Crazy Mother and Still Came Out Smiling (With Great Hair). The two Puerto Rican actresses first met on the set of In Living Color back in 1991. Perez was the show's choreographer at the time and recalled how Keenan Ivory Wayans called J.Lo "chubby and corny." Despite being labeled a diva by the other dancers, Perez initially shrugged off the rumors and thought they were all just "jealous." But things quickly changed when the American Idol judge ditched her "sweet-girl act" and "went off" on Perez. Perez writes in her book "I was blindsided."
