Jose Canseco has this internet show, Spend A Day With Jose, and what better attempt to launch that baby toward a possible television project than to hitch his wagon onto that Caitlyn Jenner publicity? So Jose announced that he will spend a week as a woman (after first saying it would be a month), in "support" of Jenner, who made her own much-publicized transformation official recently.
But hasn't Jose already been quoted as saying that he doesn't "understand" what Jenner has done? No problem. Daily Mail:
Speaking to the New York Daily News, he said: 'In the very beginning, I didn't understand it, so I was kind of like, against it. Once I watched it more and more, and realized what it really entailed, what he was going through, I started supporting him.
'Once it's completely done, I will be dressing up and living as a woman for a week. I'm talking about full everything.'
I'm sure his girlfriend will be happy to read this. Now she's going to have to stock the fridge with Chobani Greek Yogurt and homemade prawn masala.
We're not sure that transgender people exist so that you can use them for publicity, Jose. If you were doing this just as supportive gesture, fine. But the link with your show makes it cheap and unnatural. Actually, much like your baseball career.
