Jose Canseco wants to make it clear that the famed baseball player supports the former Bruce Jenner, now Caitlyn. And so Canseco will dress as a woman, living that way for seven days, reported MSN.
The experience of dressing in female attire and going through a week in that wardrobe will become part of Canseco’s new Internet reality show, Spend a Day with Jose.
Canseco hasn’t been in the major leagues since 2001. However, Jose has succeeded by appearing on reality shows, playing baseball independently, and even trying mixed martial arts (MMA).
Canseco confessed that he was not certain about how he felt when 65-year-old Bruce first became Caitlyn, reported the New York Daily News.
Initially, Canseco said, he was against Bruce’s transformation, but he now links that to a lack of understanding.
“In the very beginning, I didn’t understand it, so I was kind of like, against it,” said the 51-year-old baseball player. “Once I watched it more and more, and realized what it really entailed, what he was going through, I started supporting him.”
Canseco revealed only that he plans to don full female attire.
“Once it’s completely done, I will be dressing up and living as a woman for a week,” said Jose. “I’m talking about full everything.”
Most recently in the news for shooting himself in the hand and having to have surgery, Canseco also revealed via social media that his finger then fell off, reported ESPN.
“Ok well I might as well tell you.I was playing in a poker tournament last night and my finger fell off.someone took a video of it,” posted Canseco on Twitter.
Jose subsequently offered updates on the status of his fallen finger.
“My finger should have been amputated from the beginning. It was very loose with no bone to connect it.it was also smelling really bad….I put my finger in the freezer anyone want finger appetizers….Or is it finger snacks.”
Canseco informed police that he shot himself while he was cleaning his gun.
Jose played for a variety of teams during his 17-year major league career, including the Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees. But Canseco also confessed that he had used drugs, authoring Juiced: Wild Times, Rampant ‘Roids, Smash Hits & How Baseball Got Big, about drugs in the MLB.
Although Canseco is focused on dressing as a woman during his week of showing support for Caitlyn, Jenner underwent hours of plastic surgery as part of the transformation from Bruce to Caitlyn, as the Inquisitr reported.
