In the past: Jen was a fly girl before me, but we've been really good friends since we were both starving dancers in New York. I got to be a fly girl when she left. I had the best time doing it. It was magical, just a good job for dancers back then.
That was such a crazy time. I flew myself to LA [for the audition] and I didn't even have any money to eat that night. If I didn't get that job, I didn't know what was going to happen. I wanted to dance so bad, I literally was dancing for my life. I had, like, one can of tuna left. I was in the bathroom stall after the audition just praying. Then Rosie came in and told me, "You got the job." I couldn't even hear her say that. It was the toughest time in my life and that just turned everything around.
Now, Rosie Perez goes in on Jennifer Lopez and tells Fat Joe how Jennifer Lopez got famous after sleeping with a dancer at the audition.
