Sammy Sosa has always said he’s comfortable in his own skin, but apparently he’s not.  Former Cubs employee Rebecca Polihronis is insisting that he’s not going through a Michael Jackson phase, but a "skin rejuvenation".  I have to laugh at that one!  First it was being fitted with green contact lenses to hide his dark brown eyes, now he’s changing his skin color.  Will the next step be a nose job or bleaching his hair blonde?  He was better looking as a black guy.  Since he can’t erase the black mark against his name with his steroid abuse, he is opting to erase the black from his skinjust in time for an awards show.  My guess is he’s lying about the reason for his drastic skin color change just like he lied through his teeth about his steroid abuse.  He doesn’t appear to be proud of his heritage.  What a slap in the face this is to blacks…
Sammy Sosa says skin rejuvenation process reason his skin appears lighter

Sammy Sosa tells friends he is comfortable in his own skin.

But a widely circulated photo of the former Cubs slugger makes his skin color appear several shades lighter.

"He’s not trying to be Michael Jackson," said former Cubs employee Rebecca Polihronis, who talks frequently with Sosa.

Sosa was photographed recently during an appearance at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.

"He is going through a rejuvenation process for his skin," Polihronis said. "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.

"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."

Polihronis, the former Cubs Care/Community Relations manager for the team, said Sosa told her he has used moisturizing treatment at night on his face.

"He has always been concerned with the way he looks," she said. "Probably just bad timing going to an awards show."

Among the possible side effects for some laser skin rejuvenation methods include discoloration of the skin. The treated area may become lighter or darker in appearance.

"He was doing a dermatological skin process after years and years (of playing baseball) in the sun," Polihronis said. "It did come out looking weird (in the picture)."
