Jose Canseco has never been shy of the spotlight, and now the former baseball star is planning a timely new publicity stunt. He plans to live as a woman for a week in support of Caitlyn Jenner, reports TMZ. "In the very beginning, I didn't understand it, so I was kind of like, against it," Canseco, 51, tells the Daily News. "Once I watched it more and more, and realized what it really entailed, what he was going through, I started supporting him." (He'll master the pronoun shift after a week, too, presumably.) No word on when the week will start, but, this being Canseco, it will be documented in full on his Internet reality show, Spend a Day With Jose. (More Jose Canseco stories.)
