Rosie Perez and Jennifer Lopez have some serious bad blood — and don’t expect either to turn the other chica with the publication of Perez’s new memoir, “Handbook for an Unpredictable Life” (Crown), out Feb. 25.
The two Puerto Rican actresses met in New York in 1991 at an open casting call for the sketch-comedy show “In Living Color,” where Perez, now 49, was a choreographer. Brooklynite Perez immediately noticed Bronx-born Jenny from the Block’s best asset, recalling her as a beautiful girl with a “big a**.”

Perez became the big-bootied newcomer’s booster, eventually swaying Wayans — but only if J.Lo cut her hair and dropped 20 pounds.
