Sammy Sosa, former Chicago Cubs Home Run Hitting Machine, showed up for the 2009 Latin Grammy Awards looking a little pale. Fingers have already been pointed in the skin bleaching direction. Despite his skin looking extremely white, his peeps insist it is just a skin rejuvenation process.
“He is going through a rejuvenation process for his skin,” according to Rebecca Polihronis, a former Cubs staffer who keeps in regular contact with Sammy. “Women have it all of the time. He was surprised he came out looking so white. I thought it was a body double. Part of (the photo appearance) is just the lighting.”
“People who saw him in person did not react the same way. He can’t believe it is such a big deal…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.’”
