Sammy Sosa Bleached His Skin White. Allegedly.

Believe it or not, the two photos below are of the same person. No, really.

Last week former baseball star (and steroid taking bat corker) Sammy Sosa showed up at the Latin Grammys with his wife Sonia looking…..well…..interesting. And very white.

So weird. And a little creepy.

Of course everyone is crying skin bleaching; except for Rebecca Polihronis, a close friend of Sosa’s, who says it’s just a beauty thing and doesn’t understand what all the hoopla is about.

“He’s not trying to be Michael Jackson. He is going through a rejuvenation process for his skin. Women have it all of the time. He was surprised he came out looking so white. I thought it was a body double. He is in the middle of doing a cleansing process to his skin. The picture is deceiving. He said, ‘If you saw me in person, you would be surprised. When you see me in person, it is not going to seem like the picture.’ People who saw him in person did not react the same way. He can’t believe it is such a big deal.”



I’m not quite sure how a chemical peel can completely change someone’s pigmentation, but whatever. I mean, I’ve heard of peels making your face really red, but white from brown? That just doesn’t make sense.
