Jenny From The Value Shop! Jennifer Lopez sports a budget supermarket vest as she larks around with BFF Leah Remini on first day of filming Second Act in NYC

Jennifer Lopez was stripped of her pop diva glamour Monday as she sported a blue ‘Value Shop’ vest during her first day of filming Second Act at a Queens supermarket.
